Feature "T1 JJ c Robles Park Residents Chase Man Accused Of Killing Babv s: BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel City Editor As the news of an infant being thrown from a vehicle spread throughout the community, a manhunt was underway. However, when the suspect was observed in the Robles Park Public Housing Complex, the residents took action. Residents in the complex spotted 21-year-old Richard McTear, Jr. Captain Rocky Ratliffe, of the Tampa Police Department said, "Three or four people called and said he was on Stratford. "He was running from the residents and the police. There was a foot chase and everyone wanted him caught. After he was caught, the people were giving us and themselves high fives." McTear was wanted at the time for felony battery, burglary and kidnapping. He was later charged with first degree murder, false imprisonment and violation of pro bation. The circumstances that resulted in the death of 3month-old Emanuel Wesley Murray and landed McTear in jail began around 3 a m., on Tuesday. The Hillsborough County Sheriffs Office received a call for help from Ms. Jasmine Bedwell; 17, who told police her ex-boyfriend had attacked her and her infant son. Ms. Bedwell told police the infant was thrown down on concrete and th'en the man picked up the child and fled the Mirabella Apartment complex in a blu e 4-door Impala. As police were looking for the vehicle, an employee of FOX 13 was traveling southbound on I-275 at Fowler Avenue, when he observed something on the side of the interstate. A closer inspection showed that it was an infant. He contacted police and they determined that it was Emanuel Murray, the infant who had been reported missing by his mother. The infant was pronounced dead at the scene at 4:30 a. m. A preliminary investigation indicated that the child had been thrown from the vehicle, police said. As the morning unfolded, police continued to search for McTear. Around 5:30 a m., the vehicle he was driving was located in the 1600 block of River Cove. Four hours later, a tip led Tampa Police to the Robles Park area, and after a foot chase that ended on Arlington, McTear was taken into custody Judge Denies Bail A Hillsborough County judge denied bond to a 21year-old Tampa man accused of throwing a baby from the window of a speeding car. The baby, whose body was discovered by a news station employee on his way to work, was pronounced dead at the scene. Judge Walter Heinrich, Jr., said to Richard McTear, Jr., "From what I'm reading, you threw a baby from a car. It's obvious you won't be getting a bond It reads like it could be a death penalty case." .....

However, video from his arrest shows him cursing at reporters and when asked why he threw the baby from the vehicle, responded, "It's a dirty game. It's a dirty game." Ms. Bedwell, who was treated and released at a local hospital, had filed paperwork with the Hillsborough County courts seeking a restraining order against McTear. The hearing was set for Monday, but was dismissed because Ms. Bedwell did not show up. Funeral services for Emanuel Wesley Murray were incomplete at press time. Ray Williams Funeral RICHARD McTEAR, JR. ... Charged with first-degree murder Home is in charge of handling arrangements. A Violent Past The first time McTear was arrested took place in November 2001. At 14, he was charged with battery against his mother, police records show. Some of his arrests are highlighted. In March 2006, Temple Terrace Police launched an investigation into a complaint of child neglect. McTear's 2-year-old child was found wandering outside. No charges were ever filed in the case. In November 2007, McTear was accused of forcibly taking the vehicle of Ms. Rekale Hill. He is alleged to have entered the car and began punching and strangling her. She told police that at one point, she was about to lose consciousness, but was able to break free. McTear is alleged to have then pulled a knife and threatened to cut her. She escaped, but left her son in the vehicle. He allegedly climbed into the driver's seat and drove away with the child in the car. The child was dropped off in the 1600 block of River Cove. As police were investigating the complaint, they were p.otified of a car fire in the 1600 block of Mulberry. It was Ms. Hill's vehicle. He was arrested on February (X) 1\) 0 0 CD 28, 2008.

Our praises go out to you who prac::i and teach patience to your chilc:ken, rather than impatience.

Moreover, we place crowns.onJh!! i= heads of all mothers who give heavy doses of hugs, kiss.es, w ...1 love you's," and daily suvport so .their children will gr,p' ...1 up to be men and women, rather than menaces and ffi acs. Another name for motherS is "anger management." O'n ..J this weekend, look long and lovingly at yourself in the mirW ror. For, it is because of your kindness and motherly ways that our society still exists. z So, Happy Mother's Day! w en <( Q a: 0 ...1 &L A Babv on The Interstate I The baby's name was Emanuel Wesley Murray. Remember that. Then remember how he died. He was tossedout on I-275like a piece of garbage or road kill, for all the trucks and SUV's to squash. That is how. a 4-month old infant met his final fate. And it was one of our sons killed him. Please. Don't put the paper down. Be offended, yes, that we echo what all the media throughout the world is reporting. Be offended, yes, that in our country, in our state, in our city, lurks the soul of a monster who could snatch up a .little baby out of his mother's arms, smasll hjs Aead on concrete, then speed off down a busy highway, later to toss the screaming child head-first onto an unforgiving major interstate! Yes; we all should be offended. But, by no means be angry at us because we told you that the murderer was the son of a mother who looked like uS! Don't be offended, but wear the picture of the young man who did the deed, as you would a cross on your shoulders or a wreath of thorns on your brow! A Black man did that to his girlfriend's child. They were arguing . the young man and the baby's mother. Indeed, their confliCt reminds us of a play entitled "For Colored Girls Who Consider Suicide When the Rainbow is Entif. "Written by Ntozake Shange, the play features a character Beau Willie Brown, who threatens his girlfriend by holding her two .children out a high-rise window, and finally drops them to the concrete, stories below. We -=t laughed and shivered when we saw that play, more than 20 W years ago. Never did we suspect that art would be echoed by reality. We were wrong. Beau Willie lives! He resides here ... inTatnpa! A DiHerent Kind Of Mother's oav This weekend, mothers all over the world will be celebrating what is supposed to be their special day. But, it will be hard for three mothers in the bay area to find anything to celebrate. Three young women have lost children to violence in the last two weeks in the bay area. One child was thrown to the floor and died from his injuries Another child was sexually assaulted and died of trauma to his head And, the third child was allegedly thrown from the window of a moving car. Since all of the mothers in volved in these cases were young mothers, some folks think they are to blame for harm coming to their chil dren. But, in all fairness, these men don't walk around with the word "PSYCHO" stamped on their foreheads So, we can second-guess all day long, but the truth of the matter is some step-dads are better to the children than their biological dads. But, there are some things that young mothers can do to pro tect themselves and their children. Moms can take their time and get to know these young men before moving them into their home. You really will not shrivel up and die if you don't have a live-in boyfriend. Stop giving men permission to hit you! Unless you are the attacker, there is never a rea son for a man to hit you. Licks are not love taps and they don't translate into "I Love You!" Arguments are a heated ex-Frances Ellen Watkins Harper: change of words and do not end with a fistfight. The first time a man hits you is the hardest, so stop it before it starts. If you take him back after the first time you are giving him permis sion to do it again. If you choose to call the po lice, follow through with the prosecution. Otherwise, you are setting the stage for the abuse to get worse. The police, battered women's shelters, family, friends, and neighbors can only do so much. You have to decide that you are not a punching bag and that you won't tolerate abuse. But above all, moms don't trust everyone to care for your children. Children are precious commodities that cannot be replaced, and should be loved and not beaten. Enlightened Motherhood PARTI ''Every mother should endeavor to be a true artist. I do not mean by this that every woman should be a painter, sculptor, musician, poet or writer, but the artist who will write on the "table" of child hood innocence thoughts she will not blush to see red in the light of eternitY and printed amid the archives of Heaven. That the young may learn to wear them as amulets around their hearts and throw them as bulwarks around their lives. And that in the hour of temptation and trial the voices from home may linger around their paths as angels of guidance, around their steps, and be incentives to deeds of high and holy worth" (excerpt from a speech on Enlightened Motherhood given by Frances Ellen Watkins Harper before members of the Brooklyn Literary Society, 1892). While trying to find out more about Frances Ellen Watkins Harper, who was described by one of her biog raphers as "the best known and best loved African Amer ican poet prior to Paul Laurence Dunbar," I came across a speech she gave on motherhood, selection of mates and marriage. Though given more than u8 years ago, her thoughts on mother hood; choosing the type of man to marry and father our children, and building strong marriages are as Televant today as they were in 1892. Let me introduce her to you, now. Frances Ellen Watkins Harper (1825 -1911) was a poet, novelist, short story writer, essa)rist, abolitionist, teacher and turer who lived during the 19th and early 2oth centuries. Moreover, she was the mother of four children. Born in Balti more, Maryland to free parents, Watkins was raised, by an aunt and uncle who were vocal figures in civil rights is sues. Having embraced litera ture at a young age, Watkins Harper published her first poems in the Frederick Dou glass Paper and published her first book of poetry at the age of twenty. Watkins left Baltimore to become the first female teacher at Union Seminary (established by the Ohio Con ference .of the AME Church prior to the church's purchase of Wilberforce University). A few years later, Watkins became a traveling iecturer for the American Anti-Slavery Society, g1vmg speeches throughout Northern Amer ica and Canada. Watkins' speeches focused on issues of sexism and clas sism as well as racism. After marrying a widower, Fenton Harp_el_", with three children 18o, Watkins-Har.per had a daughter, Mary. Four years later, Fenton Harper died, lmd Watkins-Harper returned to lecturing as a supporter of women's suffrage !coNTINUED oN NEXT PAGEl

:D Colum n s The Great Teacher Speaks Let's sup.pose Hillsbor ough County Commis sioner Kevin White does indeed, not have nine lives. Then let's assume that his paternal uncle's admission that his nephew was no where near his Stone Mountain home which contradicted his nephew's sworn statement that he did indeed, have the honor of staying there, overnight, would once and for all, derail what many have called the political express of the man many refer to as Hills borough County's answer to the Teflon Don. Then might we conclude that such a turn of events would bring a sigh of relief from nu merous nervous potential vot ers who, for awhile were biting their nails because they were cronies with both incumbent Kevin White and his front running political adversary Lesley "Les" Miller? Friendship is what I'm talking about. Indeed, having to choose be tween friends is not th e best way to get through a morning. But every voter in every Southtown or small Souther!} ci_ ty should be used to it. Cer tainly, Tampa is no exception, especially where Black voters are concerned. "Why?" you ask. And the answer is histori cal. In Tarripa, when it comes to political personalities and Black movers and shakers, everybody is somebody's friend, most often on a per sonal basis. Alliances are made and kept, on a handshake, kiss and an eye-wink, over lunch. And favors, in this town, are life-long and not taken lightly. If I'm lying, you tell me! So, because of recent devel opments, Kevin White !VIAY be out of the political picture. But Black voters are NOT out of the woods, not yet For, other friendships are lurking in the wings. Take, for in s tance, the recent announcement by one of Tampa's most popular preach ers who happens a l so to be one of Tampa's most powerful City Councilmen, Rev. Thomas Scott -that he in tends to become Tampa's next mayor. No doubt, his announcement sends shivers down the spines of many a Black mover and shaker in this town, who has a l ready given his or her alle giance to some other friend. What's even scarier is the prospect that more friends will probably join the dance. And the ballroom of "one hand washes the other is apt to get mighty crowded, where bud dies are concerned. So, what are friends to do? Perhap s, they might do what a veteran mover-and-shaker once admitted he did. He said, "I financially s upport either while being publicly seen with neith er!" Unless both candi dates converge at the same place and the same time and the supporter happens to be in the middle, certainly the vet eran mover-and-shaker's adage is the way to go. And even more certainly, candi dates like Rev. Scott and oth ers would state unequivocally they expect no one to support them simp l y because of friend ship. However, the truth is the light. Politics runs on more than money truth or integrity. What does it run on? Politics r u ns on friendship! Black Insight from page 4 J .. and prohibition Settling in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Watkinslfarper. .li,ved in,'} h,qme that served as an 'Underground Railroad statio n. Many of her poems and novels were inspired by the stories told by escaped slaves while hiding in her basement. Watkins-Harper publ ished one of the first nove l s by a Black woman, Shadows ... and a popular poem "Bury Me in a Free Land," which she dedicated to aboli tionist John Brown. Author of at least a dozen books, many and speeches, Watkins-Harper gave a rousing speeeh dem a nding equal rights for all, including Black women, at the National -W0men's Rights Conv:ention, in 1866. A woman who kept company with Sojourner Truth, Harriet Tubman, Ida B. Wells, William Still and John Brown, WatkinsHarper was also a devoted mother. Next week, I will share some more details of this enlight ened mother with you.

Boy, you f ee l so good and so a l ive that yo u just want to party all th e time. You drink plenty of alco hol smoke pl e nt y of cigarettes, stay up late at night a nd eat as much of anything as you want. Party! Party! P arty Party all the time. Man, this is the life. No pain, no doctors, no med ication, no fee ling bad and plenty of good times But believe me, my young friend, all of the partying all of the alcoho l the late hours, the unhealthy food and lack of annual physicals are not without a price What it adds up to is party now and pay for it later. Onc e you pass the age of so, the joy of all the partying begins to ravish your body. You'll look up one day and you have high blood pressure, diabetes prostrate problems, heart problem s, blood circulation problems, liver problems, kidney problems, weight gain and much n ee ded r eg ular vis its to your doctor. Some of these medical pro blems can b e attributed to the aging process. But in most in stances, th ese problems are directly related to the party all the time actions of people at a young age. Am I saying to young people not to party? Not to enjoy themselves? Not to enjoy the good l ife? I certain l y am riot By no stretch of the imagi n a tion am I even implying that. I am saying that young people and older people too, should party in moderation They should get the proper amount of rest, make use of a healthy diet, and at least do annual physicals with your doctor. There will be plenty of time to splurge on food, alco hol a nd partying without over doing it. Young people, talk to so m e older peopl e who u se d to party all the time. The y will readily tell you that knowing what they know now, they would not have partied so much arid would have done a better job of taking care of their bodies. I -It is so good these days to see senior doing very well for their age because they have always taken care of themselves.

Also as part of the job several workshops were held for job seekers to listen to employers and get tips on what to do to impress employers. Chevina Collins was at the job fair, and said she wor-ked for Verizon until complicatioris of pregnancy caused her to lose that job. "I've been out of work since August 2008. With the economy being so bad, I got discouraged for a while, and I have visited a lot of staff agencies with no success. "Right now, fll any-thing as long as it's a'job." Magdaline Cari.gar said she has a job and is looking for more work. "I'm a day care instructor. I have a background in sales, arid that's what I want to get involved in. It's what I do best, and I found a lot of resources at the job fair." Reggie Turner and Alonzo Hall attended the job fair w"ith hopes that their past wouldn't prevent them from finding employment. "I've been out of work for 5 years," said Turner. "I had worked in warehouses and on construction sites. Being a felon hasn't made it easy finding work. I hope in spite of that, I'll find From left to right: Ernest Coney, Evangeline Best, and ETCRP Vice-Chairman, Leerone Benjamin.

I've never been to prison, but the time I've spent in jail still raises eyebrows and denies me the opportunity to support myself and my family." Hall said he was released from prison February 1, 2009 after serving an 8-112 sentence. "I have absolutely no plans of returning to prison. I had been doing constructioh work before I went in.

Local After More Than Three Decades, Old Friends Reunite There's nothing more precious than the memories we have of our child hood and teenage years. African American males in their mid-.50s especially have fond memories as they were the first victims of the county's 1970-1971 desegregation plan. That act sent childhood friends to separate schools, and virtually was the death notice for Howard W. Blake and Middleton High Schools. Years go by and you don t see your old friends from your high school days unless one of them passes. "It's a shame we get so caught up in our day-today lives, we don't have time to call our old friends or just spend time with them. I hate hearing that they've died and I never got a chance to talk to them again." During the early 1970s, Middleton High School had an offense that featured Ralph Kyles, Alfred Pyles, and Ronald Peterson among others. Peterson and Pyles had managed to stay in contact over the y e ,ars, but Pyles and Kyles hadn't talked to or seen each other since 1972 "I was at a hospital in FIRST BAPTIST CHURC OF 4025 W St. 879-1351 Sunday School -9 : 30 A.M.

W e jus t laughed at the whol e thing and we thanked God for bringing us together. Kyles said they all ne e d to acknowledge God more and keep in mind the life He's given us. "We're already planning our next rgeeting, and we hope can get more of the guys to show up." Reporter Leon B. From left to right: Alfred Pyles, Ronald Peterson, and Ralph Kyles. Crews can be reached at (813) 248-0724, or emailed at lcrews@flsenthe area in March 2009, getting examined because of an accident I'd been in," recalls Pyles. "That's when I ran into Ralph. We exchanged numbers, and I passed his number on to Ronald. Ronald called Ralph and from there we coordinated a day we'd meet. On April 9th, the trio met at the Red Lobster Restaurant on Busch Boulevard and it was like old times. "I couldn't believe it had been more than 30 years. We shared old stories from our high school days, and my heart was touched to have the three of us together again." Kyles said words can described how he felt "It was jubilation. It was also a nervous feeling for me. Once we sat and started reminiscing and talking about each other, it felt like an old church revival." "We discovered how wrong we were about what we'd heard about each other over the years. We poured out our feelings for Something For EverYone! Come One ... Come All! . :_. Mt.

Henson Headed To JeHerson;l A rumor has been floating around every since the basketball season ended that Sickles' 6'4" Parade AllAmerican Amber Henson is headed to Jefferson High School. I don't know whether this is true or not, but that is the rumor. Without a doubt, the Dragons girls' team is the best in Hillsborough County and one of the best in the state. If Henson joins the Dragons, they will be nation ally ranked. Coach Mosca's Dragons are already loaded and Henson would just add more ammo for Jefferson to fire at opponents. Tiger Lacks Mental Edge Tiger Woods was off from playing golf for nearly nine months, recovering from reconstructive knee surgery. Tiger is back on the course and has one win and two could-have-been wins. Tiger isn't quite ready to win yet. It is not his game. His winning game is there. What is missing is what separates Tiger from the rest of the golfers. Tiger is not yet there with his mental toughness that often carries him to victory. Tiger is making mistakes on the golf course that he usually does not make. Hitting shots short of the green, running balls way past the cup on putts, missing greens with very short irons and other such mental lapses that make the differ-ence between winning and losing. Mr. Woods is almost there and should be there by the time the next major tournaments rolls around. He is playing this weekend in the Player's Championship. Freeman Beginning To Impress The Tampa Bay Buccaneers had a mini-camp last weekend and a lot of doubters got a chance to see Buccaneers' first round draft pick, Josh Freeman work. The more they saw of Freeman's work, the more impressed with the young quarterback people became. It is hardly possible that Freeman will open the sea son as the starting quarterback, but it is possible that he could end the season as the starter. Bucs' Coach Raheem Morris has no intention of playing Freeman until he is ready. ......... LeBron James Win's MPV Award LeBron J anles of the Cleveland Cavaliers was the runaway winner of the 200!:!

Sports Repon: Favre Scheduled To Meet With Vikings.Coach Childress Patriots' Tavlor lniured BRETIFAVRE MINNEAPOLIS--Just when Brett Favre looked to finally be out, the Minnesota Vikings could be pulling him back in. Citing an anonymous source "with direct knowledge of the discussions between the two parties," ESPN reported Tuesday that Favre is scheduled to mee t with Vikings coach Brad Childress later this week about a possible comeback with Minnesota. Both Favre and Cook have said this spring that Favre intends to stay retire d But Favre's statement after h e was released by the New York Jets last week left the door open. "At this time, I am retire d a nd have no intention of returning to foot ball," he said. Those three little word s "At this time" -set off rampant speculation that h e was ind eed considering a second return to action. Childress said Friday he had been too busy to concentrate on Favre, but did acknowledge the subject would soon be broached FRED TAYLOR Patriots running back Fred Taylor, who has a history of nagging injuries, recently suffered a sprained l eft wri s t while h e was exer c i sing, according to m edica l so urc es. Taylor hurt the wrist w hen he fell on his outstretched left hand. It appears the injury occurred while he was working out on his own in South Florida and not at Gillette Stadium under the team's supervision. Saints Release Arrested Plavers who signed a twoyear, $5 million deal to join the Patriots i n February, sought treatment April 24, complaining otgain for two days An MRl"di"d',..not reveal any fractures, or ligament darnage, and the initial diagnqsis of a sprain was confirmed' Taylor was told to put thJ BIREN EAL Y And KOLOMONA KAPANUI METAIRIE, LA--The New Orleans Saints cut _receiver Biren Ealy and tight end Kolomona Kapanui on Tuesday, two days after the young players were arrested for allegedly being drunk and exposing themselves to two women in the lot of a suburban apartment com plex where they live. The pair were arrested early morning in River Riage 'by Jefferson Parish authorities, who booked the two players with obscenity, disturbing the peace and lewd conduct. Authorities alleged that they were drunk, urinated in public and then exposed t4emselves when the women .who called authorities came upon them. The players' lawyer, Donald "Chick" Foret, says the players did noth-ing obscene and thought they were in a secluded area, late at night, when only one of them -Ealy -relieved himself behind a garage. "This is not an obscenity crime," Foret said. "How many times have you had fraternity kids who are urinating in public? And this is a case where you had two guys together who went out at night. They came home, one of them wanted to change his pants and he was urinating in what he thought was a secluded area and a young lady walked l.lP on him and he overreacted verbally. "But 'never, ever, ever, did either of these young men threaten, intimidate or expose themselves to anyone." Practidng Law In: I wrist in a Velcro splint, rest it, and ice it. i Last Monday, doctors told Taylor that he gradually could ramp up his activity over the following two or three weeks. The injury has affected Taylor's ability to lift weights, as that activity, in particular, aggravates the wrist. Q Sentinel Bulletin .

The Pittsburgh Steelers released Foote on Monday, L\RRYFOOTE a mov e expected because he asked to be traded or cut. He started every game for them the past five seasons, including their Super Bowl victories last season and after the 2005 season, but was unhappy coming off the field on passing downs. Colts GivQ Johnson Second Chance After 2008 orug Possession Arrest . INDIANAPOLIS,IN -;the Indianapolis Colts re-signed defensive 1t ,ackle Ed Johnson after they waived him last season following an arrest on a drug possession charge. The Colts waived Johnson one day after the arrest in September. Now, the Colts hope the 6-foot-2, 296-pound run stopper has learned to take the team;s rules seriously during the time away. We are giving Ed Johnson another opportunity to play for the Indianapolis Colts," Colts coach Jim Caldwell-said. "We dismissed Ed last year be'2ause he knowingly violated. a team rule in the area of personal conduct. I every of a team rule or NFL poli cy on an individual case-by-ED JOHNSON case basis, and we evaluate a possible return to the team on that same basis." Johnson originally signed as a free agent in 2007 and started 16 games. He started one game in 2008 before he was waived, and he's glad to be back.

Sports James Collects First MVP Troohv LeBron James is the first Cleveland Cavalier to win the MVP award. CLEVELAND,OH -LeBron James pressed the trophy high above his head and gave 20,000 Cleveland fans another chaQce to chant "M-V-P!" This time, officially. James was presented with the league's top individual award on Tuesday night by Commissioner David Stern before the Cavaliers hosted the Atlanta Hawks in Game 1 of their Eastern Conference semifinal. James actually won the award on Monday and received it during an intimate ceremony at his alma mater, St. Vincent-St. Mary High School in Akron. Only James' teammates, family members, friends and hundreds of students were able to attend in the school's small gymnasium. Cleveland's Quicken Loans Arena was sold out for the Cavaliers' first playoff game in nine days, and James made sure to thank fans dur ing a brief pregame speech. "You guys have a big pait in this MVP trophy," he said. "I know you've been waiting around for nine days. I'm ready to get back on the court." James, who was on the floor practicing more than three hours before tipoff, was in MVP form from the out set. He scored on a dunk for the Cavs' first two points and finished the first quarter with 16 and five rebounds. Stern praised the 24-yearold James, who won the award by a wide margin over Kobe Bryant and Dwyane Wade, two of his teammates on the U.S. Olympic team that won a gold medal at last summer's Beijing Olympics. "We've seen someone bloom before our very eyes," Stern said. "It's been a great, great year and it's fun to see the Cavs having this great run and LeBron lead ing it." James is the first Cavaliers player to win the award and Cleveland's first professional athlete to be chosen best in his sport since Browns quarterback Brian Sipe was NFL MVP in 1980.

Then And Now DETROIT--Basketball legend Dave Bing was elected Tuesday as Detroit's mayor through the end of the year, sweeping the incumbent from office in the city with myriad problems. "The real work starts now," Bing said to loud cheers during his victory speech. "What we will bring . is efficiency, transparency, honesty and integrity back to the mayor's office," he said. With all but two of 629 precincts reporting, Bing had 52.3 percent of the vote, or 48,951 votes, to 47.7 percent, or 44,703 votes, for Ken Cockrel Jr. Both are Democrats. Bing, 65, will be mayor through 2009, serving the balance of the term that belonged to Democrat K:wame Kilpatrick, who resigned in September and W!'!nt to jail after admitting he lied during a civil trial to cover up an affair with his chief of staff. Bing must run again in the regular Aug. 4 nonpartisan primary and win the Nov. 3 general election to hold the mayor's seat for a full four years. The founder of steel manufacturer The Bing Group announced his run for mayor the day after Kilpatrick stepped down as part of pleas to two criminal cases. Toda)r .. : --: "The Voice of Our Com1nunitv Speaking for ltseff'' r (813) 248-1921 Powe Undergoes Successful Knee Surgerv BOSTON --Boston Celtics forward Leon Powe has undergone successful surgery for a microfracture and torn ligaments in his left knee. The team announced that team physician Dr. Brian McKeon performed the surgery Tuesday morning at New England Baptist Hospital. No timetable has been set for Powe's return. The second-year forward tore his anterior cruciate ligament and meniscus in the first quarter of the Celtics 118-115 win in Game 2 of their first-round playoff series against the Chicago Bulls on April 20. The defending NBA champions won the series in seven games. LEONPOWE Coach Doc Rivers said Powe hurt himself on a spin move but continued playing for three more min utes. Powe averaged 7.7 points and 4.9 rebounds per game this season. Tiger Is Back, But Without The Same Power PONTE VEDRA BEACH, FL --So much about Tiger Woods after major knee surgery looks the same. He won at Bay Hill with a birdie putt on the last hole that everyone knew he was going to make. Even when his swing was out of sorts last week at Quail Hollow, he somehow was in the thick of contention until the final two holes. But this is not the same Tiger Woods. He is missing his power, whether it's. off the tee with a driver or from the fairway with irons that are sometimes two more clubs than what he used before surgery last June to rebuild his left knee. The power shortage was never more evident than the final round of the Masters, playing with Phil Mickelson, o 'ods usually was the first to hit from the fairway. Even his rival couldn't help but notice. "I kept having to wait him to hit," Mickelson jok- ingly said Tuesday . That wasn't the case the last time they played together at Augusta National, the final round in 2001, when on some holes Woods hit it farther with a 3-wood than Mickelson did with a driver. Mor e evidence came last week at Quail Hollow. By measuring drives on the 56 holes that were not TIGER WOODS par 3s, Mickelson's average tee shot was nearly 14 yards longer than Woods'. Statistics can be misleading, especially over the first two rounds because they played on opposite ends of the draw. But in the third round, when they were separated b y : one g .roup, Mickel so!), .,}:vas longer Off !ee the 14 driving holes.' :Lefty's average drive was 317.6 yards, Woods was at 300.5 yards. Woods has an answer for his sudden loss of length. "I've been away from the game for a long time," he said Tuesday, referring to his eight-month layoff after the U.S. Open. "And it's going to take a little bit of time before my body gets back to where I can hit the ball the same distances. I don't hit the ball the same distance with my ir.ons or my driver. What he doesn't have an answer for is when he will get it back.

Major League Baseball plans to announcethe suspension later today. Ramirez, a baseball source told SI.com, explained to baseball officials he was uncertain he was taking a banned substance and may have had a medical reason f o r using the substance. After consultation with the Major League Baseball Players Association and his representatives, Ramirez has decided not to challenge the suspension, according to an MLBPA statement.

New life To live Right In life there are many un certainties From day to day people do not know what will happen or how they will be affected. No matter what happens in life there are two things that are certain, one is when life begari and two that life will one day end As we live life in the spirit of God, people can be as sured of a new birth. God is a God of newness and rebirth God takes you from your way of living to a new and better way to live. In the eyes of God you were dead Paul writes to the church in Ephesus in Ephesians 2:1-10 to enlighten and encour age them to walk in their newness. He informs them of their past living. As he ad dresses this issue it is not so much about their physical state, but rather their spiri tual existence. He says to them that you who were dead in sins and trespasses have been quickened (vs. 1). He opens by letting them know two things: one, you were dead and two, you have been made alive. All people who live in relationship with God must realize and understand that they once lived a life of sin and unrighteousness Although it did not cause a physical death in them, they were however spiritually dead. This death also points their being separated and es tranged from God But re gardless of what your relationship was before, God has revived you and has given you a new life God has awakened you to a spiritual way of living. The reason for this death is a result of way indi vidual lives. Paul asserts that walking according to the ways of the world, which fol lows after the prince of the air contributed to this death (vv. 2, 3). People often times become and alienated from God as a re sult of living and walking in the ways of the world or earthly things The world does seek to do the will of God, but it seeks to do the will of its master. The devil is the ruler of worldly things. He is the prince of the air Becoming tangled in the affairs of the world and seeking after the lust of the fle sh will cause an individual to remain dead spiritually and/or die spiritually. This life of death was not and is not the end. There is redemption in life The indi vidual has a chance for a new life There is an opportunity to live a better life. Paul says that although life was this way, God who is rich in mercy gives new life (vs. 4, s). You have a chance at a new life not because you have been good or even that you will do good all the time, but because of God's grace and mercy. God's grace and His mercy are more than the sins that you might commit. God's grace and His mercy are able to go beyond your faults and downfalls His power is so great that it elevates to be one with Christ, His only Son who did no wrong. He takes you from w > wl t P----------------------------------------------.

They were instructed to create a book that would exhibit their unique imagination and to give it'a title The stories were written in their own words and the book title was also to express one central feeling or mood in the children's book. Most of all, the story must have a happy ending These are some of the students displaying their books. "The Gingerbread Girl" was written by Rodaija Parks. Doshae McCloud entitled her book "Doshae's Memories." "About The 'Lil Girl" wasthe title of the book written by Jocelyn Raiford.

"TT :D c New Organization Reaches Out To The Communitv co OLA ABREU AND SHEILAH YOUNGBLOOD For more than 20 years, Sheilah Youngblood and her sister, Ola Abreu, have been serving their community. In October 2008, the sisters decided to start an organization, and selected the name, "Our Sisters-Our Friends." Two years ago, the sisters started planning an event they hoped would introduce them to the community 'and allow them to fulfill their mission. "Our mission is to help single mothers," said Mrs. Youngblood. "We want to bring them from dependency to being independent." Through donations, the organization has handed out food boxes and offered prayer and counseling for those with low self esteem. Their motto is, "A winner never quits, and a quitter never wins." The organization does not have a home base right now and it functions entirely on donations and out-of-pocket. Mrs. Youngblood said it was important for her to establish this organization, but it reflects her past. "As a struggling, single parent with two jobs, I can understand what a lot of the young women today are going through. God helped me through, and I hope we can help others." The sisters said they are also willing to help single male parents. "People have been torn down by so many things going on that have disrupted the family," said Mrs. Youngblood. "We are our brother's keeper. We also train the children to be young men and women of class and distinction." The sisters said what they are doing is a Tampa Bay initiative, not just a community project. "We turn no one away and we don't discriminate," said Mrs. Abreu. "We need the help of the community so we can help and support others and Administrative Rep.

The skin disease, which affects 17 percent of school-age children, can af fect youngsters' ap pearance, sleep, and th e ir ability to concentrate in school. Because the amount of bleach used was so small, the diluted ble ac h baths were n ear l y odorfree, the study noted. Over one to three months, th e children who took the dilut e d bleac h baths had a reduction in eczema seve rity that \vas five times greater than those in the placebo group. In fact, the chil dren taking th e baths showed such rapid improvem e nt in eczema and infection symptoms that the researchers stopped the study ear ly, so th a t chi ldren in the plac ebo group cou ld get the same amou nt of relief. brick by brick, block by block, callous hand by callous hand . together ordinary people can do extraordinary things . n PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA What's up everybody! 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 because 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 talking 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 con tinue to have unsafe sex I was in 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 myself to a DACCO program I just know I'll have to get myself together for my kids.

HMOs. cash-OnlY I g Most headaches are tension headaches These headaches tend to happen again and again, especially if you are under stress. They are not usually a sign of something serious But they can be very painful and hard to live with. Symptoms of tension headaches include: A headache that is constant, not throbbing. You usually feel the pain or pressure on both sides of your head. Pressure that makes you feel like your head is in a vise . Aching pain at your temples or the back of your head and neck. Tension headaches tend to come back, especially when you are under stress. They can last from 30 minutes to several days. Usually, pain from a tension headache is not severe and does not get in the way of your work or social life But for some peo ple the pain is very bad or lasts a long time. You have chronic ten sion headaches if they occur at least 15 days a month. But if you take these pain re lievers more than 3 times a week, you may get rebound headaches. Rebound headaches are different from tension headaches. They usually start after pain medicine has worn off, which leads you to take an other dose. Eventually you get a headache whenever you stop taking the medicine. Home treatment may help you avoid headaches. Learn how to handle stress.

Popular Radio Show Cancelled On Tuesday, the management of 1150AM WTMP Radio d e cided to cancel the Michelle B. Patty Person a l Injury Report Show The 45-minute show was broadcast on Sunday mornings, beginning at 9 a.m. The show's host and creator, Michelle B. Patty, said she's calling for a boycott of the radio station and they plan to have a protest in front of the station this Saturday at 9 a.m. The station is located at 407 North Howard Avenue. Mrs. Patty said she's not surprised by the decision. "What we were talking about ruffled some feathers and with the station being white owned, there are some things they don't want broadcast. "It's obvious by this action that we don t share the same in terests and when we speak out on injustices in the Black com munity, they don't want to hear that." Mrs. Patty said she person ally paid for the show and it was generating revenue for the sta tion. "They also broadcast a dis claimer before and after the show, but they shut us down anyway. "We've spoken the truth in defense of what the big publica tions have been printing that MICHELL B. PATIY paint the Black community wrong. They want to destroy my credibility and now they want to silence me, and the community. The community doesn't have a voice of truth anymore." Mrs. Patty said she had been warned if she continued to speak out, her show would be cancelled. "I refuse to be silenced when it comes to the African Ameri can community needed a voice of truth. As African Americans, we can no longer spend our money with people who don't' support or respect us, or our dollars. I consider this censor ship. We ask the questions oth ers are afraid to ask. We raise the conscious of the entire com munity, not just African Ameri cans A frequent guest on the show, Jarvis El-Amin, said the Black community is not under apartheid "They are practicing censor ship. Mrs. Patty was paying for her segment, and I'm calling on all community leaders to join us with this protest and boycott. We can't allow this sta tion to silence the voices of strong African American lead ership. This will be dealt with and we won't be silenced by this action." Station Manager, Jim Kozlowski, said the station just decided to move in a different direction. "We want to keep the station very positive and continuing to serve the community. This is not a censorship issue. "I have had conversations with Mrs. Patty about some of the subject matter discussed on the show." Reporter Leon B.

Over the past f ew years of high band s urfing I have came across many free us eful software that we can take advantage of in our day to day function s The first and mo st useful f ree software is of course AVG Antivirus which can be downloaded a t the AVG website. Keep in mind the software does not come with free t ec hnical support, you will have to scour the web 's many blogging websites for support If you are concerned about getting rid of spyware from your comp ut er, then try this nice freebie I highly recommend SuperAntiSpyware which will help to lind the most common spyware hiding in the Wind ows registry and will even remove spyware for free. You can find SuperAntiSpyware at Cnet.com download section. Do you want to upgrade to the lates t Off i ce Suite but don't have the extra mon ey to buy Microsoft Office 2007? Hop over to Openoff ice org and dow nload OpenOff ice 3 0 1 w hich happens to look a lot like Microsoft Off ice. It is easy to u se and h ave powerful spread she e ts and w ritin g documents program. What's so special about Op e nOffic e.org? Well besides from the f ac t that you are downloading a fre e suite which really should retail for abo ut $400, you can save writing documents i n just about any format including Microsoft Word in case you need to transport your files to another com puter or to send it to a friend who does not have OpenOtnce installed o n their computer Do you need to sharpen up your office suite skills ? Try th i s free lea rn ing web site GCFiearnfree org As far as the best free communication software Skype is clearly the first choice Say you have a relative in ano t her country or someone who lives out of state as long as both parties have Skype installed on their computers you can make free phone calls to each other If you have a web cam you can even see the person Skype fans will go as far to purchase a Skype phone for more com fort However, Skype will not allow you to make direct phcine calls to land lines (house phones) for free These are just a few wonderful freeb ies at our disposable but there are many more that are not mentioned here Eric Hall is a CompTIA and Microsoft certified technician with over ten years of experience and can be reached at comptecb@comptechonline.us for any questions pertaining to this article.

She worked and made sacrifices to be the ever-present and guiding light in our lives. We were blessed to have her as our mother. As a Mother's Day message to everyone whose mother is still among the living, we would like to share First Lady Michelle Obama's statement that, "There isn't a relation ship in a family that is more important than the relation ship a child has with her/his mother, or someone in that role, arid we have to vplue that. We cannot wait to value it, we've got to value it' each and every day. I just wish jo1 all the mothers and children out there that they take the time to reach out, to forgive, to share, to embrace. Because noth ing in your life will ever me more important." We truly share her wish, because we dearly miss ow mother. Mother, we are thankful for the love you gave to us.

Your childre n Robert, Annie Laura, Arthur and Verna." llappy Mother's Day Pearl Williams And Diane Young PEARL WILLIAMSAND DIANE YOUNG We have these beautiful Angels ; they lift us with their wings; they have no idea, the love they truly bring. Their faces we 'll always remember; their voices soft and sweet; the days we feel sad; their wings lift us to our feet. They're always right beside us; to help us do what's right ; they hug us in the morning; and hold us through out the night. When tears fall down our faces; they gently take our hands; they wrap us up within their wings ; and comfort us the best they can. They now live in Heaven; not far form our reach; they whisper words of comfor t and still find a way to teach. So for all the loving things you were; and all the car ing things you did ; we are sending you this special Mother s Day wish multiplied by two ... Love, your family, Jeannette, Ivory, Lillie, Barbara Jean, Willie, LaShon James, Roy, and India; all your grandkids, and great-grands.

There are times when only a mother's love can share the joy we feel when something we've dreamed about quite suddenly is real. There are times when a mother's faith can help us on life's way and inspire in us the confidence we need from day-to day. For a mother's heart and a mother's faith and a moth er's steadfast love were fashioned by the Angels and sent from God above Mom, you will always have a "special" place in our hearts.

A mother's smile is contagious, it spreads and lights the way; for her children to see their possibilities everyday A mother s warmth is timeless, it radiates on cue to touch the hearts of her children with a love so true. A mother s love is endless from birth until the end, s h e gives and gives and if asked will give again.

Gospel Plav Focuses on loss 01 A Mother On Sunday, May 10th, members of the community will have an opportunity to sit backand enjoy the stage production, "I Sho' Do Miss My Mama." The production will take place at the Pepin Hospitality Center, 4121 N. soth Street, at 4 p.m. The play, which has a local cast of about 35, is the brainchild of Ms. Beverly Grant. Ms. Grant, a Tampa native, said she wrote the play with a purpose. "This play is in memory of my parents, the late Clarence and Sadie Grant, Sr. I was trying to reach peo ple who still have a mom. "I hope the play will give them the insight of realizing that if you have a mother, you should treat her well. It has been 20 years since my mother passed away, but God has kept us through it all." While the initial focus may be on cherishing your mother, Ms. Grant said the play is about much more than that and that it has something for everyone "We leave no stone unturned. It has something for the homeless, the addicted, the ill, .it has something for everyone," she said. She further stated that the gospel based, "I Sho' Do Miss MS. BEVERLY GRANT ... Author /Producer My Mama" is her second stage production. The first, entitled "Stand," was produced while she was in the Panhandle. The play takes you on a roller coaster of emotions as you laugh, cry, sing, and praise God. The talented actors promise a show that the audience won't soon forget. She decided to use local budding actors for the play because she feels cities "are full of untapped, raw, and hidden talent that is just waiting an opportunity to be discov ered." Ms. Grant launched her writing career as a songwriter about 15 years ago. Three years ago, she decided to try her hand at writing plays. The mother of one son and three granddaughters, Ms. Grant credits her family with being her inspiration. "My family is the greatest inspiration in my life and I thank God for blessing me with this opportunity." "This play is in memory of my mother as well as a tribute to Mother's Day," she said.

They had known each other for years, and chose that day to get married because it was the birthday of Angalia's mother, Ms. Betty Callaway. The couple never had a chance for a honeymoon. Mrs. Whicker-Tabor was one of three family members killed.in an accident Saturday evening. They were returning to Tampa from Jacksonville after attending the graduation of a niece. Also killed in the accident were Ms. Stephanie and 9-year-old Cyenna Watts. Mr. Tabor said he and Angalia have a 12-year-old daughter together, Sentavia, and she was riding in the lead car that was driven by Shawn Callaway. "I'll never forget hearing her voice on the phone. She called me screaming about the accident. She saw the car flip ping and people being thrown all over the place. She saw her mother and ran over to see if she could help her. It was horrible for a child to see her mother that way and could do nothing to help her." "When our daughter called, I jumped in a car with others from Tampa, got to Daytona, and it was like a nightmare. I'm still devastated by the whole thing. I lost a son and ANGALIA WHICKERTABOR wife in an accident and to go through this again is unbearable Tabor said he's leaning on God and putting his in Him to give him strength "I really appreciate my wife's family for helping me get through this. They are very strong people, and have helped keep me calm throughout this entire ordeal." On the other family members injured in the accident, Mr. Tabor said Ms. Betty Callaway has been released from the hospital. Sh e didn t know about the others who died at first, but _now that she knows, she's tried to be strong for all of us." Mr. Tabor said the two children, Unique Callaway, 9; and Lil' Will are expected to be released soon "Unique is still battling through her injuries but she's going to make it." Mrs. Angalia WhickerTabor was born and raised in Tampa and a graduate of King High School. She was very involved in church activities at New First Union and a devoted mother. Mrs. Whicker-Tabor's mother, Ms. Sarah Barnum, said her daughter was a diligent church worker. "She was also quite an ath lete, having played basketball T n junior high school and high school.
