HOLTON Sentinel City Editor Tampa Police are hoping that residents and business owners in the Thonotosassa area can help with the investigation of a young man missing more than two weeks., He was last seen in the company of his friend, whose body was found in a wooded area on April 7th. Ms. Andrea Davis, spokesperson for the Tampa Police Department said, "We are asking business owners and residents in the area to report anything the feel might help in the case. They may have seen something that might be the break we need in this case." She further stated that detectives are stilrwaiting on the report from FDLE (tpe Florida Department of Law Enforcement) physical evidence collected at the home. They are waiting to determine whose blood was found inside the house. Police believe that 21-year old Carl G. Walters was murdered at the home, located at 1810 E.

Last Minute Legislation Signs Of Disrespect For Voters A slew of last-minute legislation being pushed through by Florida's majority Republican legislators show an obvious disdain and disrespect for Florida voters while demonstrating a "lip-service" concern for our children's education welfare. One piece of legislation clearly shows Republicans have not gotten over being trounced during the 2008 presidential election. We're referring to attempts by Tallahassee to penalize senior citizens, voter registration and Election Day volunteers, as well as voters who change their addresses less than 29 days before an election. It would seem Republican Party elephants do indeed, have long and malicious memories. Among legislation being resurrected and reconsidered by our current State Legislature is a bill that would allow oil and gas drilling within the Florida coastal waters (shore to 10 miles offshore). Environmental groups are up in arms at the prospect of having to fight this legislative battle one more time. Other pieces of legislation threaten to repeal class size for K-12 schools; cut funding for advanced placement classes and international baccalaureate programs; and l reduce funding for junior colleges arid universities; w while limiting sales taxes on luxury yachts and private c.:J jets. We hope parents, educators and senior citizens as well What You Do At Night ... It has often been said that what you do at night will come to the light. This statement came to life recently after six prison guards were caught on Video beating an inmate. The six officers involved in the incident no longer have a job, one officer, a 25-year veteran, resigned. But, the other five were not so lucky. Additionally, Florida Department of Corrections Secretary Walter McNeil plans to turn over the find ings of his investigation to the U.S. Attorney's Office for possible criminal charges. Five others were placed on administrative leave. They learned of the beat ing from a tip from another officer. Apparently, this offi cer had a bit of conscious or integrity. Ben Williams. As the story goes, on April 8th, the prison had a power failure. It was at this time that a lieutet:tant, three sergeants, and two other officers pulled an unidentified inmate from his cell in solitary confinement and proceeded to beat the crap out of him. Apparently, those involved in the beating thought that they were safe because of the power outage. However, what they failed to realize is that although everything was dark, the cameras were equipped with a backup charger. Additionally, what's really interesting is that none of these officers were rookies. Their years of service were 25 years, 22 years, 16 years, 12 years, and two with 6 years. Any one of them could possibly end up serving time in the same institution where he used to be a guard. There is nothing "fun" about their jobs. Prison guards interact with society's outcast every day that they report to \.vork. They must deal with mur derers, rapists, child moles ters, thieves and everything in between. But, they knew that when they accepted the job. However, they are in a position of authority over the inmates. The inmates are at their mercy and the guards should not abuse their authority. It's one thing when it's an allegation, but it's a different ball of wax when it's on video. This just goes to show that what you do at night ... will come to the light. Minstrel, Comedian And Vaudeville Headliner! Having witnessed passio_nate movmg mimes m whiteface by talented youth at religious programs, each time I was reminded of the old blackface minstrel shows, which I wrote about last'week and wondered if the children had been taught about the historical significance of the mime and whiteface. Even though credit for mime is given to early 2oth century French actors such as the great Marcel Marceau, its history really began in the 19th century with actors like Stan Laurel (of Laurel and Hardy), Charlie Chaplin and Bert Williams, a Black man who performed in blackface. Whiteface is used to reveal facial expressions more clear" ly and neutralize the subject. However, during the late 18th and early 19th centuries, even though whites popularized and introduced blackface to American audiences, Blacks later replaced white min-strels Blackening their faces with cork, like white minstrels, many Blacks, according to the Museum of Racist Memorabilia, "pretended to be whites pretending to be Blacks, and performed similar 'Coon Shows,' which dehumanized Blacks, and helped establish the desirability of racial segregation." Minstrel shows lost their popularity in the late 18oo's with the advent of motion pic tures and radio, but remained popular in small towns and portrayed Blacks in even worse caricatures. One of the most famous Black minstrels was Egbert Austin Williams. Known as "Bert" Williams, the Bahamian immigrant entered show business as a "barker" in the 189o's, advertising Wild West medicine shows. In 1893, Williams was recruited by the troupe man ager of the Martin and Seig Mastodon Minstrels, which played the California lumber and mining camps. Later that year, Williams met and teamed up with George Walker, also a Black minstrel. The two toured rural America and Broadway as The Williams and Walker Show. Unfortunately, Walker died and left Williams to dance, sing and pantomime his way into clubs, cabarets, theaters and the hearts of audiences throughout America. Indeed, the handsome Bert-in-blackface became the most famous minstrel of his time, e":en playing a command performance in England, before His Majesty King Edward VII. 'Even so, Broadway sources claimed many white vaudevillians refused to appear on the same stage with Williams, while others complained that Williams' material was better than theirs, and thus outshined I Continued On Next Page I as other voters who oppose oil drilling, education cuts, classroom size increase and voter disenfranchisement will let their legislators know how they feel. Change comes when voters speak!

"I'm thinkin' about runnin' for political office, and I need your advice. You got a minute?" the tele phone purred. It was my on-again, offagain good friend J. A. Hines, more infamously known as Hine-Parts among other things, behind his back, of course. "Sure, Bro. Hines. I've always got time for you" (I lied). "So, what's on your mind?" I asked (as if I cared). "Didn' you hear what I said?" barked a voice that sounded like a growl and a smack in the face. "Yeah, I heard you, I winced "You said you were thinking about running for political office." "That's right," yipped Hine-Parts! So, I picked up the bait. "What you planning on running for .. City Council?" "Nope," he snapped! "County Comniision?'' "Uh-uh," he gagged! "Well, are you run ning for Mayor of-'the City of Tampa? At that, Hines exploded, Are you crazy?? Do you know how many people are hankerin ; to be the Mayor of the CitY of Tampa? Heck, some body told me former Mayors Dick Greco and Sandy Freedman are even thinkin' about jumpiil' in, not to mention other folks like Joe Redner, Joe Robinso n and that former police fellah, Serious Lewis!" To put it politely, I was exasperated! "So, what-the devil are you running for?" I yelled into the receiver. And the answer I received was cool as a cucumber. "I'm runnin' for Dog Catcher." "You WHAT??" "You heard me! Did I stutter?" No, I had to admit, of all his faults, Hine-Parts did not stammer. "So, whatchou think I should do?" "Whatchou mean what I think you should do?" "You heard me! Shouid I run for Dog Catcher or NOT?" "Is anybody else running for Dog Catcher?" I inquired. "Not that I know of," answered Hine-Parts, "which is exactly why I'm fi'nduh run 'caus-e ain't nobody runnin' against me, but ME! 'Pretty smart, don'tchou think?" I looked at the phone receiver, and imagined I was staring into Hine-Parts' googly eyes Lord knows, I wanted to laugh, but was afraid his ear might catch me. So, I simply said, "I wish you well, my Brother though elec tion time is more than a year away." "I know that," said HineParts, as he thanked me for my time, then reminded me, political campaigns cost money and he would be hit -ting me up for a donation; sometime soon Then, before hanging up, he asked, "Do you think I could get a full-page ad in the Sentinel?" "For Dog Catcher?" I mused, as if I were thinking aloud. "I don't see why not," I answered. True enough, I didn't see why not, but I couldn't begin to wonder how the Sentinel might see it! Once again, H.P. thanked me and as I was about to hang, I heard him yell, "By the way, when you write that donation check, be sure to make it out to 'Mr. Jerome Algonquin Hines!"' I chuckled to myself, "That's 'Hine-Parts,' for short!" Black American Insight continued trom page 4-A them. Williams faced segregation and discrimination in many of the same hotels and restaurants where he performed. Unable -to eat in the same dining rooms or to ride in the same elevators as whites, Williams lamented the treatment he often received According to Wikipedia and PBS, even though Williams and the late Walker billed themselves as "Two Real Coons," and Williams' origi nally portrayed a slick, con piver while Walker played the "dumb coon" victim of Williams' schemes, Williams "did not play for laughs at the expense of other African Americans or Black culture, but rather based his humor on universal situations in which any member of his audience might find themselves." Williams became famous for his pantomimed poker game, which became so popu lar until it led him to be fea tured in the film A Natural Born Gambler." Williams also popularized several songs and the dance "Cakewalk."

It is a question state and federal lawmakers, faced with the balancing act of managing a financial crises while protecting the safety concerns of society at large, hate to address. On one hand they know that they can save millions of dollars by releasing a significant number of the inmate population. At the same time, they ask them selves, how many of these maladjusted individuals do they want to risk releasing into the public sector in an effort to alleviate some of the financial strain? Anti-prison reformist, lobbying congress on the behalf of corporations who benefit from the surplus of cheap prison labor, love to hear accounts of ex-cons returning to their former occupations upon release. It gives them the ammunition they need to block parole legislation and push for stricter penalties. Whenever one of these iru'nate 'Dumb Dumbs out of prison and do:es something stupid, it lfbt only reflects negatively on the thousands of otherwise well-intentioned individu als who long for the opportunity to prove themselves. It also creates another hurdle for inmate advocates such as F.A.M.M. (Families Against Mandatory Minimums) and M.ts. (Mothers of Incarcerated Sons) who argue for a restructuring and elimination of harsh sentencing guidelines. Through the legal maneuvering, inmate 'Dumb Dumb' becomes the poster child for everything wrong with the system. But the reality is that it doesn't matter if laws are passed to help reduce. the inmate population or further increase it, there will always be individuals who will continually go through the process and never learn their lesson. These are the people who, whether they realize it or not, actually enjoy being incarcerated. They love the constant bickering with power-tripping correction officers, violent frontations, sleeping next to toilets and being exposed to all types of abnormal human behavior on a daily basis. For a per son who has the chance to escape such an environment, committing an offense that would send him or her back has to either signify their love 8ffair with these conditions or their complete insanity.

., Letter To The Editor :rJ Historv Of Competition Yields Best Benefits Consumers. :tl As a life long Floridian I have seen with my own eyes what a difference a properly structured law can make in our state. Thirteen years ago the Florida Legislature became one of the first states in the nation to open Florida's communications mar ket to competition in a manner that protected consumers and allowed for growth and innovation in the communications industry. Since that time con sumers have seen new and better communications products and services, more companies from which to choose and services priced at competitive prices. I want to thank the Legislature for creating the 1995 Telecommunications Act because it actually helped con sumers in very tangible ways but as the Nobel Prize winning diplomat Ralph Bunche once said, "To make our way, we must have firm resolve, persistence, tenacity. We must gear ourselves to work hard all the way. We can never let up." Never have these words been so poignant. With the economy spiraling out of control, unemployment reaching numbers that haven't been seen in decades, we need laws that w ill spark more growth and investment in our state. I believe the passage of the 2009 Consumer Choice and Protection Act is key. Why you might ask? Well, the proposed legislation promotes real competition and leads to companies investing more money in Florida.

DR. SAM HORTON Ms. Sanchez is credited with bringing the first Head Start program to Hillsborough County by working with former Congressman Sam Gibbons. Ms. Edgecomb said Ms. Sanchez served as an inspiration to so many parents who enrolled in the required parent-counseling segment of Head Start. "She has done so much in her role for the economically challenged children in Hillsborough County that I feel she should be honored in this way. "I selected the Kimball buiHling because it serves as a parent resource center, it offers community and other services in the community." Ms. Edgecomb said she ol:,tained information about how to rename the Sylvia MS. DELIA SANCHEZ Kimball Full Service Building after an elementary school was named in honor of Mrs. Kimball. The school board also voted to rename the Instructional Services Center, corner of N. 40th Street and 21st Avenue, in honor of Dr. Sam Horton. Dr. Horton, who was 79, died earlier this month. Mrs. Edgecomb suggested that the building be named in honor of Dr. Horton because of his tireless work to ensure that all children obtain a quality education. "I believe this is a fitting .; tribute to his memory. The NAACP, where Dr. Horton had served as president until his illness, is widely in support of naming this building in his honor," Ms. Edgecomb said. Dr. Horton launched his career with the Hillsborough County. School District as an English teacher. During his 42-ll2 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. He retired in 1991. Dr. Horton began the United. 'Negro College_ Fund All-Star Basketball Game in Hillsborough County to benefit the United Negro College Fund. He also 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. "We feel this is a befit. ting honor to Dr. Horton, past president : Of Hillsborough County NAACP and lorigtime Administrator in Hillsbo rough. Dr. Horton will be missed, but his memory lives on," Ms. Pat Spencer, Secretary of the NAACP said. CHRIST LIKE. MINISTRIES INT'.

Williams, Pastor Local New Bills Target lotinl Rights 01 low-Income Communities 01 Color This week, in the eleventh hour of the legislative session, Florida legislators are attempting to pass sweeping and unwarranted election bills to take away the civil rights of voters of color who have long struggled to fight their way to the ballot box. Poised to be enacted by Florida's House and Senate, Senate Bill 956 and House Bill 7149 are considered to be some of the country's most brazen attempts by state policymakers to disenfranchise the voting rights of lowincome communities of color. Through its grassroots work in Florida, Advancement Project and the Florida NAACP, leading national civil rights organizations with voter protection efforts in Florida, say the bills take away the voting rights of low-income communities of color by: Restricting the list of SENATOR ARTHENIA JOYNER acceptable forms of identi. fication for voter registration and identification at the polls; Prohibiting voters from completing a change of address forms at their precinct and voting by regular ballot; Severely impairing the ability of third-pa:rty groups to help voters ter to vote; Restricting the ability of voters waiting in line to vote to receive important nonpartisan information about voting and their rights at the polling place ; and Restricting the abilityof the governor to extend early voting. Senator Arthenia Joyner said, "The elections bill (Senate Bill 956 ) is a disgraceful effort to keep Florida's voters from exercising their Constitutional right to vote. This bill, if passed and approved by Governor Crist, will cause voters great inconvenience and deprive thousands of individuals of the privilege of voting," "The people of Florida deserve to have their voices heard and their votes counted when they .vote. This bill is nothing more than an anti-voting bill and will unravel hl.uidreds of years of effortS to guarantee those important Constitution-rights," Senator Joyner said. Countv Administrator Discusses Budget Issues Although the final budget approval is months away, the Hillsborough County Administrator said other cuts are probable because of the economy. She also stated that additional jobs and services would have to be eliminated. -Ms. Bean, Hillsborough County Administrator said, "Unless the board (Hillsborough County Board of Commissioners) is inclined to let us niise fees between the market, the legislators and their actions, and the passage of Amendment 1, we are going to lose some services and positions.': During the last two years, approximately 800 positions have been eliminated in Hillsborough County go v ernment. How e v e r, s he said only about 100 employees were actually laid off. The employees were eithe r mov e d to other positions or the positions cut were vacant. Ho w ev er, she said, "This year i s much w orse, if I hav e to take the total loss about 1,000 jobs will be cut. I've MS.PATBEAN Hillsborough County Administrator been here for 32 years and I love this organization, but we can't afford all of the things we've done in the pass." Ms. Bean said the County currently provides a hot meal to about 2,000 e lderly citizens eac h day. The y also l eave meals for the weekend that ca n b e heated. She is currently discussing a partnership with the Meals On Wheels Program that would continue providing the meal s if that service is c ut. She a lso s aid additional mandates are holding coun-ties more accountable and that the high foreclosure rates are causing taxes to drop. "Two years ago I had to cut $70 million from the budget. Last year, I had to cut another $50 million, and the second year of the budget will call for another $56 million .in cuts." One of the avenues Ms. Bean is pursuing is to meet with the other municipali ties (City of Tampa, Templ e Terrace, and Plant City) in the county to discuss corisol. idating some of the centrar services. She said she attempted this in the past, but wa s unsucc es sful. She is still holding out hope that the meetings will be suc cessful this time. Ms. Bean said two meetings to discuss the budge t will be h el d during the summer and the two r equire d public meetings will take place in September. City Editor Iris B.

Local author Gets Offer To Turn Book Into Movie When Braxton Vaughn wrote his book, "17 Stacks," he never entertained any thoughts of it one day becoming a movie. "All I wanted to do was share my life experience with others who may have gone through the same thing." His book was about a proud 26-year-old husband and father and his real life experiences that are relative to today's generation. "I was inspired by the struggle of young husbands and fathers, and the hustle in life for anyone who wants success." The book did well and sold a lot of copies. But Vaughn never thought his book would wind up in the hands of a local director. BRAXTON VAUGHN "I got a phone call, and this director said he had read my book and suggest ed I convert it into a movie. I thought about it a little, and thought it would be a great idea." In with Felton Moore, Vaughn said the movie will be about the hustle and struggle of a h us.band and father, but he hopes any male figure can relate to it as far as how to be success ful against all odds. "I'm writing the screen play, and this is all new to me. I'm looking f o r l ocal people as cast m embers, and we start shooting May 2nd. "I'll be acting in the movie as myself, and I'll also take care of the sound track. We expect the movie and soundtrack to be released in 2010. I'm also looking for local artists, aspiring actors and actresses to be a part of this project." Reporter Leon -B. Crews can be reached at (813) 248-0724, or emailed at lcrews@[lsen tinel.com.

The Detroit Lions have the first pick and the Tampa 1 Buccaneers have the 19th p.ick. Right now, neither team is sure who they will draft, or what position they will draft for. The Lions need so much until almost any position on the team can use a good first round pick . The smart thing for the Lions to do is to trade that pick for as many early round picks that they can get. Rumors have it that the Lions may be looking to take a quarterback with their first pick. The Bucs are going into Saturday's draft not sure what they will do with their first round pick. With so many good young players returning and their suc cess in the free agent market, this has given them a broad range of things they can do with their first round pick. The rumor is that the Bucs may trade their first round pick for more picks : There is another rumor that the Bucs are more interested in defensive players and maybe a big, effective left tackle. This is a deep draft at almost every position except quar-terback. Henson Is The Real Deal Sickles basketball star and High School All American, John Henson is the real deal. Henson has played in a series of All-Star events since the basketball season ended. He has played with and against some of the nation's top senior ball players and has given a good account of himself. Henson has been a shot blocker, a rebounder and a dunker. But, John Henson is more than that. He has impressed with his ability to run the floor, to dribble the ball up court on the fast break and to knock down shots from the outside.

Quite A Few Teams Inquire About WR Boldin ANQUAN BOLDIN TEMPE, AZ --The Arizona Cardinals have received inquiries from "quite a few teams" about disgruntled wide receiver Anquan Boldin, and more conversations are anticipated as draft day approaches. But general manager Rod Graves and coach Ken Whisenhunt repeatedly emphasized at the team's pre-draft news conference Tuesday that they would be happy to keep Boldin and eventually try to sign him to a new contract. Speaking to reporters at his charity event in Florida last week, Boldin appeared open to staying with the Cardinals, a departure from earlier requests to be traded. "I didn't say a trade was necessary," Boldin said. "I just want something to get resolved. It's something that's gone on long enough." Boldin expressed his extreme displeasure in last season's training camp, accusing Cardinals management of failing to follow through on a promise of a new contract and vowing never to re-sign with Arizona. Boldin has two years remaining on a four-year; $22.25 million contract. He earned $4 million last season. The Tampa Alumnae Chapter of Delt

Sports Draft Another Vehicle To Help Bucs Get Younuer RAHEEM MORRIS TAMPA--The Tampa Bay Buccaneers intend to be young, tough and have a nasty disposition. At least that's what firstyear coach Raheem Morris envisions, with the 19th pick in this weekend's NFL draft likely to be one of the keys to making that a reality sooner; rather than later. The youngest coach in the NFL at 32, Morris was tabbed to replace Jon Gruden, in part, because of his ability to relate to players -especially a talented, but largely inexperienced group of holdovers that must emerge if the Bucs are going to be successful. He scoffs at the notion. that not re-signing quarterback Jeff Garcia and releasing proven veterans such as linebackers Derrick Brook s and Cat o June, running back Warrick Dunn and receiv" er Ike Hilliard has left the team with gaping holes to fill. Quarterback and defensive tackle are the team's most pressing needs entering the draft. While there has been plenty of speculation about Kansas State's Josh Freeman winding up in Tampa Bay, it may be diffi cult to use the pick on him if a player with the potential to make an immediate impact on defense is avail able, too. Among the possibilities is Mississippi defensive tackle Peria Jerry. USC linebackers Brian Cushing and Clay Matthewsare highly regarded, too. Holt Eauer To Return To Form With Jaguars TORRY HOLT JACKSONVILLE -The Jacksonville Jaguars have been searching for Jimmy Smith's replacement for years. Now, Torry Holt gets a turn. Holt signed a three-year, incentive-laced contract with Jacksonville on Monday night, hoping to give the Jaguars the go-to receiver they've been looking for since Smith retired after the 2005 season. And H olt believes he still can perform at a high level despite closing in on his 33rd birthday and being two years removed from knee surgery. :::D c l< Top WR Prospect Feels Fine Heading Into NFl Draft NEW YORK-Michae l Crabtree ditched the boot about two weeks ago.

The 21-year-old receiver from Dallas spent two seasons in college, dominating defensive backs and averaging more than a touch9own per game.

Now the Great Falls, Va., Little League -already out the $500 was promised so he'd show up over the weekend -says it will raise another $500 to cover Dll:kes' penalty for failing to arrive at Nationals Park on time. He also was dropped from the starting lineup that day. Dukes' 2009 salary with the Nationals is $415,500. He declined to comment about the matter before Washington's game against Atlanta on Tuesday night. "We felt terrible, because he was doing work for us that made him late," Great Falls Little League president Jim Mraz said. On Saturday, at the Great Falls Little League's opening day, Dukes gave high-fives to children and spoke to the crowd before leaving. "He was very engaging," Mraz said . "He signed basel>,alls.

Goodell savs lick's Ticket Back To NFlls Showing 'Genuine Remorse' LEXINGTON, VA -NFL commissioner Roger Goodell says Michael Vick has paid a significant price for doing an "egre. gious thing" and will have to show genuine remorse and that the experience has changed him in order to get a chance at resuming his career in the league. Afterward, Goodell said he has not kept up with Vick's legal issues since suspending him from the -league after his conviction a federal dogfighting case. Vick is serving a 23-month prison term and has a team of lawyers trying to settle his finances in bankruptcy court. MICHAEL VICK A major component of the bankruptcy lawyers' efforts to find a way for Vick to satisfy his creditors is based on his ability to again earn millions in pro football. Patrick White Out To Prove He's Capable QB Again NEW YORK -Patrick has been playing quarterback since seventh grade and prefers to keep it that way. It's hard to blame him, really. Coming out of high school in Daphne, Ala., a bunch of Southeastern Conference schools told White that he couldn't play quarterback for them. Then he became a star at the position for West Virginia. When his four years were up in Morgantown, the Mountaineers were 34-8 in games White started. He broke 19 school, Big East and NCAA records, and became the first quarterback to start four bowl vic tories in college football his tory. But White did much of his damage to defenses with his legs, running for 4,480 of the 10,529 total yards he gained. PATRICK WHITE next level? White only worked out as a quarterback at the Combine and at his pro day in West Virginia, declining to do receiver drills. But he hasn't taken a hardheaded stance against being used in. the Slash role Kordell Stewart CQBIWRJRB) made famous with the Pittsburgh Steelers in the 1990s. During White's individual workouts for New England, Philadelphia, Denver, Baltimore, and Cleveland, he ran patterns and caught So after all White has accomplished, the question he faced coming out of high school is still dogging him as he prepares for an NFL career: Can Patrick White play quarterback at the passes.

Crime Retrial Requested In case 01 Truck Driver Last Friday, prosecutors asked a judge to set a new trial date in the case of Jean Claude Meus, a truck driver accused of killing two people after Florida Highway Patrol investigators said he fell asleep at the wheel. In 2003, a judge sentenced Meus to 15 years on vehicular homicide charges in the deaths of Nona Moore, 40, and her daughter, Lindsay, 8. However, a year ago, a Hardee County judge threw out the verdict and set a new trial after finding that Meus' trial attorney erred when he failed to contact an important witness.

Rene Brown, owner of Ladies Of The Sea Restaurant, held her grand -opening April 17th at her new location, 2705 East Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard. She decided to open her restaurant on Sunday, April 19th, after church goers in the area had told her they thought it would b e a great idea so they could eat there instead of cooking at home. -Brown told police she had locked up the restaurant around midnight Sunday and discovered it had been burglarized-at around 1:30 p.m. that day when she returned.

Crime Retrial Called For Man In Murder-For-Hire Plot EARNEST MORGAN, JR. After 2-1/2 days of delib erating, a jury split its ver dict last Friday for a man accused of supplying cocaine and then ordering a hit on an associate he though had snitched. Earnest Morgan, Jr., 37, was acquitted of drug trafficking and first-degree murder, but was found guilty of racketeering, conspiracy to commit racketeering, and conspiracy to deliver cocaine. Morgan was not sentenced, but is guaranteed prison time, and still faces other charges. Jurors could not reach a unanimous .verdict on two counts of conspiracy commit first-degree mur-der, a capital crime . However, prosecutors said they will continue to prosecute Morgan on those charges. Morgan was arrested in 2005 on drug trafficking charges. Prosecutors .said he had delivered 3.3 pounds of cocaine to Maurice Walton of Seffner, though they didn't know the supplier's identity at the time. Walton reportedly led authorities to Morgan with hopes of lessening the impact of his own charges. Assistant State Attorney Darrell Dirks said Morgan wanted to make sure Walton would never testify against him at trial. He allegedly agreed to pay a man $15,000 to kill the state's key witness. Walton, who owned a trucking company, was shot to death April 1, 2007. The hit man, 25-year-old Oral K. Drummond was convicted of murder last year. He was not among the more than 30 witnesses who_testified at Morgan's trial during the past two weeks. Bail Denied Man In Fatal Accident RANDY ARCHIQUETI'E Judge Walter Heinrich denied bail last Thursday to the man responsible for the deaths of two women in a traffic accident. Randy Archiquette, 39, reportedly told a detective the accident wasn't his fault. However last Friday, a prosecutor said Archiquette showed extreme disregard for human life by driving drunk. Betty Williams, 69, and Brittany McFarland, 20, died after Archiquette plowed into their vehicles at Florida Avenue and Hillsborough Avenue According to police reports, defense attorney Will Knight was headed to his office when he saw Archiquette's vehicle weaving on and off Adamo Drive. Knight pulled up beside the vehicle, honking his horn to get the driver's attention. He t .old detectives Archiquette was gripping the steering wheel with both hands and appeared to be starring at the steering wheel instead of watching the road. Knight called 9-1-1 after Archiquette's vehicle rear ended a semi trailer at 28th Street. By the time police caught up with Archiquette 30 minutes later, they found his vehicle upside down on Florida Avenue after he had sent Ms. Williams's car into a utility pole and impacted McFarland's car head-on. Ruling Made On Vehicle Seizure KALE GAINOUS The Hillsborough County Sheriffs Office Legal Section has successfully appealed the forfeiture of a vehicle used by a man convicted of his third DUI arrest in four years. In a recent ruling, the Second District Court of Appeal found that the Sheriffs Office was correct in seizing the $17,000 vehicle the defendant used in committing his third DUI offense, even though the maximum criminal fines were only $6,000. The Sheriffs Office had appealed a Circuit Court decision that found the forfeiture of the .. vehicle amounted to an unconstitu tional excessive fine The defendant, Kale Gainous was arrested ill) deputies April 18 2007. for DUI and was later convicte of his third DUI in four years.

In some respects, he was <( successful in getting computers donated and getting c sponsors for various projects en and trips for the young peow :::::: pie he works with. 1-"I've used e v e ry contact I ft know an d e v en a r a di o show w > w from Hillsborough Community College to reach out to the community. I'm happy that my voice and the voices of these young people were finally heard." San Man has been seeking a base of operations for more than a decade so the youth can gather for mentoring and fund raising projects. After a lot of praying, car washes, and barbecues, he was rewarded with a building at 5207 North Nebraska. "For the first time in a long time, I feel we've finally found a home of our own. In the past, we shared space with other o rganizations. That ended when those organizations went in another direction or just shut down Now, we have a place to call our own." From their new home, San Man said he will set up a small offic e a classroom for mentoring and study, and also it will serve as headquar ters for all of their fundrais ing efforts "The building m a y not look like much to the average per son, but to us it's a c a stle, because it's ours. We've cleaned it up, and we invite anyone to come by and check us out. I'm also reaching out to the community for more young p e opl e to join us and h e lp giv e our youth opportu nities to grow and become future leaders." c w :::1: en :J m :::::: a. FREE FOOD!

Local ., :a c Communitv Groups Attend PartnershiP Meeting )> ., :a r As people began to gather at the Ragan Park Center for last Tuesday night's East Tampa Community Revitalization Partnership meeting, the organization's chair, Evangeline Best, noticed several neighborhood association leaders in the crowd. So, prior to the regular Partnership meeting, a get acquainted session was held with Ms. Best and 7 neigh borhood association leaders. "Since my tenure began as chair, this is one of the best meetings we've ever had," said Ms. Best. "The neighborhood association leaders spoke, got to know each other better, and shared ideas on how to increase membership in their orga;ni zations as well as strategies on how to make things happen. They presented a wish list and also talked about projects already underway with TIF dollars." Neighborhood Association leaders at the meeting were Betty Bell, Valerie Washington, Jeff Harmon, Joel Barnum, Ralph Johnson, and two people from the Business and Civic Association, Molbert Scrivens and Noreen Copeland. To the delight of Ms. Best, four City Council members attended the meeting, Mary Mulhern, John Dingfelder, Gwen Miller, and Chairman Thomas Scott. Also in EVANGELINE BEST ETCRP Chairperson attendance was Les Miller, who will be campaigning for a seat on the Board Of County Commissioners. The food was sponsored by Abe Brown Ministries, and catered by Urban Catering out of Wesley Chapel. After the get acquainted session, the official ETCRP meeting began. "All of the Community Advisory Council members were at the meeting, and Bernadine White was excellent with her presentation on the census," said Ms. Best. "She also announced that she needs to hire about 30 people right way at $16.00-per-hour." N Ms. Best said she's also noticed Businessman Marvin Knight addressed the group about the lack of Black representation on all of the projects underway in East Tampa. He told the group that all he's seen .on the projects are Hispanic and white employees. no Blacks working on the different N c projects, and said they need to chal-c (Q lenge the city on that issue. "I have talked to the big contractor to allow our people to get involved on some level," said Ms. Best. "The problem is, the projects are already signed and approved before it comes to our level. On all projects where TIF dollars aren't involved, we've demanded inclusion. We already have that on TIF dollar pro jects." "We need to get to the table with the contractors before everything has been signed and sealed: We need to be a part of any and all projects going on in East Tampa. "What we really need are jobs in our community. We need to be a part of everything going on in East Tampa if it involves an opportunity for employment." Reporter Leon B.

Overcoming Asthma In The Black Communitv E very year thousands of parents must face the challenging task of car ing for a child with asthma. A reversible lung disease caused by the narrowing or blocking of the lung's airways, often as a response to various triggers, asthma affects nearly 3 mil lion African Americans. Though asthma is a manageable condition, it can be life-threatening. In addition, there are disparities in the burden of asthma. Although asthma affects Americans of all ages, races, and ethnic groups, low-income and minority population-s experience substantially higher rates of fatalities, hospital admissions and emergency room visits due to asthma. African American children ages 4 and younger are six times as likely as Whites to die of the disease. And those who don't die are hospitalized more often than their White counterparts. The burden of this chronic disease is felt everyday at the individual level, whether it's a frightening asthma attack or the constant vigilance and adherence to treatment plans required to keep it under control. Asthma triggers vary from person to person, but may include cigarette and other smoke, mold, pollens, dust, animal dander, ex ercise, cold air, household and industrial products, air pollutants and infections. These and other kinds of triggers can lead to spasms in the lungs, causing asthma attacks. Asthma symptoms include coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath, and can be life-threatening if not properly managed. In order to address these growing disparities, we, as a society, must begin to look at and embrace innovative ways to make an impact. Asthma need not continue to hold our children hostage as it has in the past. Modern medicine, diet, lifestyle modifications and other factors can make a difference. We have to try new approaches: There are too many resources available; too much health information and education around; and most importantly, too many children not living fully pro ductive lives. One source for parents and their asthmatic children to become better informed and educated about asthma, is the Internet. There are many credible sources of information available. brick by brick, block by block, callous hand callous hand together ordinary people can do : extraordinary things PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA What s up everybody!

Entertainment Letova Ends Waiting Game With New Album LETOYA LUCKETT LOS ANGELES LeToya Luckett, an original member of Destiny's Child, didn't expect to wait three years between solo albums. After she released her first record, EMI announced that Capitol and Virgin would merge into the Capitol Music Group. In the midst of the restructuring, the group's executive vice president of urban music, Ronnie Johnson, died of a heart attack. ''When you get caught up in a merger and then lose someone who was so involved in your project, there's nothing you can do," says LeToya, who uses only her first name professionally. "You don't have control; you can't release another album. So you learn to be patient." As she waited, she focused on figuring out some things about love, relationships and her personal growth as a woman, singer-songwriter and entrepreneur. Those life lessons are reflected in the songs on "Lady Love. The album is slated for release June 23 LeToya established her solo status with a 2006 self-titled album. Debuting at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums charts with 165,000 copies, the set has since sold 529,000, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The lead single, "Torn," peaked at No. 2 on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs. Oprah Makes Twiner Debut With Shout Out To Fans OPRAH WINFREY WASHINGTON -Talk show megastar Oprah Winfrey made her debut on micro-blogging service Twitter on Friday with a shout out to her fans. A literal shout. YOU FOR A WARM WEL COME. FEELING REALLY 21st CENTURY," Oprah wrote in her first "tweet," written in all capital letters, the Twitter equivalent of shouting. Oprah down her subsequent messages, informing her followers in lower case letters that her cocker spaniel would be getting a rabies shot and sqe had a hankering for a reuben sandwich. Oprah's Twitter account has grown at a phenomenal pace since she announced its creation on her Facebook page_on Thursday, attracting more than 125,000 followers in less than 24 hours. She still has some ways to go, however, to catch up with Hollywood actor Ashton Kutcher, who beat CNN on Friday in a race to see who could become the first Twitter user to attract one million followers.

(7) Entertainment N f Plies Hopes To Take 'Pientv Monev' i From The Streets To The Chans a: LL c a: LL c z < c U) w ;:::) .... w > w c w :z:: U) :::i ID ;:::) D. z ..J ..J ;:::) ID ..:. w z t= z w U) C a: 0 ..J LL People are buying into Plies' next single "Plenty Money," and the Florida MC is paying attention. "I can honestly say that song is the biggest street song in my career," he told us last week of the hanger from his third LP, Da Realist. "In my opinion, I've had a sh-load o t ; $u c ce ss ful street records; whether it be 'I Am the .Ofub or 'Goons Lurking-;: 'I'm the. Man.' I've had my share of big street records. I've been a part of big street records as well, _but it's nothing compared to this 'Plenty Money.'" The bragging is unabashed on the song. In one verse, he raps, "Wonder why I bought the Bentley when I had the Maserati?/ What I paid for the goon chain? 140 [thousand]." But does the Fort Myers, Florida, native feel any guilt about releasing such a decadent anthem during a worldwide recession? "You need to feel like [you have plenty of money], bruh," Plies rationalized. "Regardless of how bad it is, you need to feel better, man. The people that ain't got no money now, itwas the same people who didn't have money four years ago. Now it's justifiable not to have money. In.terms of the street perspective, it isn't 'as much money circulating in the streets as--it once was. But in terms of our [national] economy, the recession was a scapegoat for corporate America, who can file bankruptcy now and re-create a whole 'nother company, debt-free. The people who are strug-PLIES gling now been struggling. Anytime you can create music and give hope, anytime you can make a per son feel good ... that record makes you feel good whether you hear it at 10 in the morning or 3 in the morning in the club. It makes you feel good. "The first time I saw that record work, that shscared the f.-out of me," he continued. "It was probably a couple of thousand people there. Sold out. I didn't do that record first, I did that record third or fourth on my set: I came out to 'Me and M:f'Goons.' That mutha--a almost equivalent to P1Plenty Money,' but aPlenty Money,' anytime they hear the first two seconds of mutha--a, it's a prdhs':\ lem." 9r1T apzenty Money marks what its author ; calling a milestone in his career: It's a street record with a chance to do some damage on the charts. What makes it even sweeter is that he doesn't have an R&B feature on the song Plies Releases Teaser For His Reality Show 'Goonette' Some call it horrifying, some say it's inspiring, some label it hilarious -but everyone is fascinated by it. Plies recently released an online teaser for his reality show "Goonette, and the Internet is chatting about the show that focuses on women who show "grace" and beat the odds. "Ah, man -I feel like it was a great move for me," Plies said about "Goonette," which is still in development. The Fort Myers, Florida, MC says he's pleased that he chose to do a "Goonette" show, and he should have a deal in place with a cable network within the next few weeks. "This whole 'Goonette' movement is something I'm really excited about," he said. "Today, it's a bigger movement than the 'Bust it Baby' situation. For me to have the chance to put the trailer together and shop it around, I think it's the best move I made in my career." Raekwon Finds label Home For OniV Built 4 Cuban linx II RAEKWON The years-long delay on Raekwon the Chef's Only Built 4 Cuban Linx II had nothing to do with the music. Rae kept his sword sharp, rapping over tracks pro duced b:y Dr. Dre, the RZA and the late J Dilla, among others. The Staten Island sergeant had to get his busi ness right and find a recording home. After failing to solidify with Dre's Aftermath over at Interscope, the Chef shopped around, and on April 15, it was announced that he will release the follow-up to his 1995 classic on his own ICEH20 Records through EMI. "The wait is finally over," Raekwon said in a statement. "Words cannot describe extremely happy I am to work with EMI Music to put out my album." Danitv Kane's Aundrea Fimbres Fired Bv DiddV AUNDREA FIMBRES When "Making the Band" returned for its fourth sea son earlier this year, only two girls, Aun drea Fimbres and D awn Richard, returned to try and piece together their careers on Bad Boy and as members ofDanity Kane. After going almost the whole season without revealing the group's fate, Diddy shared with the girls on Thursday night that he had formally let Aubrey O'Day and D. Woods (whom he'd fired at the end of last season), as well as Shannon Bex (who decided not to return to the show) out of their Bad Boy contracts. But the real kicker came when he also announced that he'd also be letting Fimbres out of her contract. "You're a great per son, you're a great girl, but if I did another group, I wouldn't feel comfortable doing a group with you," he told her. "I've given a lot of thought an,d I'm gonna let you out your contract too." Rick Ross onends Trick. Daddv With lupus lvric Trick Daddy expressed to MTV News that he has not taken too kindly to Rick Ross addressing his condition on the song "Valley of Death." The song, on Ross' upcoming Deeper Than Rap, contains the lines, "Caught a little case, buddy had a little cheddar/ Pled out to 15, poured his life in a letter/ Very first line he called Trick Daddy stupid/ Said he had AIDS telling people that it's lupus/ Not the one just to jump to conclusions/ I'm getting money, small talk can be a nuisance." The rhyme doesn't sound as if Ross himself is making the accusations, but rather someone in prison he was corresponding with. However, Trick still questions why "false" claims are being brought up and, regardless of the Boss' intentions, Trick says hili! disease shouldn't be taken lightly. "Millions of people are stricken with lupus," Trick said. "I have stayed out of the bullsh-, I will continue to stay out of it,, TRICK DADD Y And RICK ROSS Ross had been with Slip N-Slide Records as l01ig as I have been with Slip-NSlide Records. He's known I've had lupus for 10 years. I was referred to my doctor by Ted Lucas who is the head of Slip-N -Slide Records. I would like to apologize to everyone suf fering ,with lupus. I would like to apologize for the insults." Ross did insult Trick in a video that recently surfaced online. In the clip, Ross -after being told by . the interviewer that it was Trick Daddy telling peo ple that R ick was a prison guard -had venomous words for his then-labelmate and sometime collab orator.

Although Cherpak couldn't comment on the .specifics, she did say that the show, if it should hap pen, "has received tremen dous publicity in Dubai the last few days and has generated buzz." I .I.'s Bodyguard Gets Same Sentence As MC For Weapons Charges T.I.And COREY WILLIAMS T.I.'s bodyguard, who served as the point man for the attempted illegal firearm purchase that will send the rapper to prison next month, has also been sentenced to a prison term of one year and one day. Corey Williams, 34, worked for Tip for five months in 2007 prior to becoming an informant and -wearing a wiretap to assist federal authorities in their attempt to arrest the Atlanta rapper. Williams was arrested one month before T.I.'s November 2007 bust on the eve of the BET HipHop Awards. The bodyguard had no previous record and agreed to cooperate with federal agents in a sting operation against T.I. to reduce his own sentence. But Williams and his former employee will now both spend the same .amount of time in prison. Rav J Chooses Cocktail On for The Love Of Rav J' Finale RAYJAND JOANNA HERNANDEZ In the end, R&B-singerturned reality-TV star Ray J had a tough decision to make: pick the girl who played hardball and was tagged as a gold digger (Cocktail), the one who came off a bit, well, off (Danger), or go in a more buttoned-own, nitpicky direction (Unique). On the season finale of VH1's "For the Love of Ray J" on Monday night, Brandy's little bro went for the 26-year-old Sacramento cocktail waitress who came in as Joanna Hernandez, but left as Cocktail, and his girlfriend. After months _o(lap dancing, double _dealing and more dirty lookS than Miss California would get at a GLAAD convention, Cocktail took home tM ultimate prize. The often wee.!! Cocktail -who gaine } reputation among th ladies for ratting out other contestants' misdeeds and secrets -squared off in the final episode against Danger and Unique. Hernandez, a social worker/go-go dancer who appeared on "The Bad Girls Club"' several years ago, said in a post-show interview with .VH1 that despite the constant backbiting, "the competition wasn't too tough." She claimed that she knew she had it in the bag when the competition for the heart of Ray-who has been romantically linked to singer Whitney Houston in the past and who famously appeared in a sex tape with former girlfriend Kim Kardashian -was down to five contestants.

Although he's been out of the headlines lately, home town celebrity, Tango, has been busy. He's been going over several projects in California, and still is work ing to create his own reality show. Tango returned to his hometown to report that he's the new urban face of the society For The Protection Of Cruelty To Animals (SPCA). "People don't there is a racial difference when it comes to the way animals are treated. Also, the Black community does, n't advocate how animals should be treated. The Michael Vick incident wasn't good for the Black community at all." Tango said he wants to use his image and status in the community to promote the way animals posed to be treated. "I want my legfteY to reflect human and affimal rights. "As far as my .m,usic career is concernE?4l.. I'm more of a hip a'6tivist TANGO now than an actual recording artist. I will no longer sell or distribute my music. I won't have anything to do with anything degrading to hlp hop music. I'm not going to dummy myself just to make a hit. I'm a humanitarian first and an artist second. My community will always come first." Tango said his partner and mentor, Ken Jackson, CEO of AMV/Beddroc Productions, has joined him on this project and several others to let the >know they are very C:Mnmu nity conscious. "I grew up in Robles Park and it was rough then and is rough now. I think the Tampa Housing Authority has created a lot of projects that weren't around when I was living there. They've planned a golf tournament for May 22nd that will reach out to kids to give them something they haven't been exposed to. They will learn that this is an intellectual sport. "I'm pleased that my celebrity status has put me in a position of being able to draw celebrities out for a lot of events and community projects." Tango is also working on creating a hlp hop network for all artists who want to know the business end of the industry. He's also been very active in the fitness industry and has some tips for anyone who is trying to get in shape and stay that way. Reporter Leon B.

If your computer seems to have a mind of its own and Internet Explorer forces you to rogue web sites or attempts to install a fake antivirus software you may be infected. The latest fake antivirus sottWare .. to surface on the internet is called Spyware Protect 2009. Hackers want you to think that your computer is about to crash and attempt to have you purchase this fake antivirus software. A few days ago a friend of mine fell for one of these fake antivirus pranks and gave all her credit card information to a crooked online company. She quickly and wisely canceled her credit card and updated her antivirus software and then performed a full scan of her com puter to find the ugly heads of several Trojans and Viruses hiding in the registry of her computer. The Conficker worm also has the ability to send thousands of spam messages to PC users across the nation. Computer experts recommend you install the latest versions of Norton or MacAfee antivirus to combat the Conficker worm. But we recommend you stay away from Norton, which robs your computer of its RAM resources AVG Security Suite 8.5 is your best bet to stop the deadly worm in its tracks. The suite will provide protection against identity theft and a comprehensive firewall to block all attempts of hijackers from taking over your computer. AVG also runs quietly in the background in real time. AVG also offers 24 hour technical support.
