On Tuesday at 3:44 p m., Hillsborough County Fire. Rescue Units responded to Orient Road and 21st Avenue for a reported explosion and fire on a HART bus Units on the scene reported the bus 50% involved in fire A total of 6 passengers and a driver were on the bus when the incident happened. Hillsborough Count Fire Rescue spokesman, Captain Ray Yeakley, said three peo ple were hospitalized, 1 with serious injuries and two others with minor injuries. Capt. Yeakley said their preliminary investigation reveals that it appears to have been a mechanical problem that caused the fire. "It is something that HART will have to address." The bus that caught fire was Route 15 that travels along Columbus Drive, then on Orient Road to the Orient Road before returning to Columbus Drive. The bus was heading north at the time of the fire 1 HART spokesperson, Ka'tliy Karalekas, said the bus that caught fire had been in service since 2000 and was scheduled to be replaced next year. "We haven't documented any reported problems with the bus Anytime a bus comes in, some maintenance is performed. We'll know more when the County Fire Marshal fin ishes the investigation. "The driver of the bus did an outstanding job. When she saw there was a problem, she immediately cut the bus off, and started getting the passengers off. She called our dis patch center and we called fire rescue and a supervisor was sent to the scene. She did exactly what she was trained to do."

HOLTON Sentinel City Editor This y ear, the N a tiona! Association for the Advancement of Colore d People (NAACP) will hold its Centennial Celebration in New York City.

Kandi Williams, who walked away the Dodge, is a single mother of three. She says this couldn't have been better timing. "It is a blessing that I went and won the car. It was right on time : : My car's engine blew ::ind now this new car is my main trans portation. Now I get back and forth to work and take my children to school." Shanelle McMiller, a FAMU graduate, won the Mazda and plans to give it to SHANELLE her little sister, Wanis Pages, a graduating Blake High School senior, as a grad uation gift.

Like love-starved children, we have come to appreciate this man who walks like a new Republican, but talks like Abe Lincoln. We should have known he'd make up his mind, one day, to pack up his bags and amble on. So, he has. Q And soon, he will. But as Gov. Charlie Crist considers ii: the following weeks and months before he throws him fL. self into campaigning for the U.S. senatorial seat, we ask him, in all respect and kindness, to remember the. fun <( Tallahassee. 0 And we remember the first time we saw Charlie Crist en as Governor. Do you remember that day? Were you there to see him step confidently out the door and down 1the steps Of the State Legisl_ative Hall to address thou> sands of waiting Floridians? Do you remember hoJV cold ffi it was, that day and how exhilarating it was to look up > and see two of our country's finest fighter jets; swoop W low over the State House to dip their wings in salute for fa Florida's newest commander-in-chief? And then the J: good times began! Was it a day, or a week that elapsed before newly-elect m ed Gov. Crist began to make clear his vision for the State :;:) of Florida?

Delaved Justice For Black.Farmers And the stars in his crown keep on coming. We're referring to President Barack Obama's decision to add a $1.2 billion settlement as part, of the 2010 budget to bring an end to a 12 Y,ear struggle for justice waged by America's Black farniers. We stand to cheer, as at least 75,000 Black farmers will finally be allowed to file claims for restitution because of past discrimination by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) regarding its loan practices and subsidy programs. Though many Black farmers claim the fund will not be large enough to pay for the losses they and their families suffered during generations of discrimination, others are happy that closure to the lawsuit filed in 1997 has finally come. Having filed the so-called Pigford class-action lawsuit in 1997, and reached a consent agreement in 1999, a few thousand Black farmers have already received $so,ooo re chapter of a past epoch of outright discrimination. At least, let us hope so.

Columns War! When I think of war, I'm reminded of the so-called soldier ant. A marvelous creature, it has been outfitted by nature for one reason and one reason only, to fight. For, we are told, a soldier ant is incapable of feeding itself. And without the constant assistance of worker ants, the soldier ant would immediately die of starvation. Consequently, nature has designed the soldier ant to become a high-maintenance biological war-machine ... a soldier, from the time it scrambles from its egg, to the day of its predictable death. And then, in comparison, I think about humanity and the human soldier. In truth, we human beings are the last creatures on earth who should ever consider war. We are not suited for it. Soft and defenseless, we should be glad a common soldier-ant is only the size of a grain of sand. For, if it was half our size, we wouldn't stand a chance against it. Yet, we puny creatures -who succumb to the slightest cold and who break at the slightest fall -have historic(ll ly been overly pro).ld of the fact we kill each other with great fanfare and intention. Indeed, our history is not a chronology of kindness, but is a narrative of warfare and pil lage, of attack and death. Why is that? I wish I knew. But when I read about Sgt. John M. Russell, and what he recently did to five of his fellow soldiers while stationed in Iraq, I was reminded once more about ants and men. In case you may have forgot ten, Sgt. Russell is the man (the soldier) who supposedly snapped earlier this week, and took the lives of five com rades in Baghdad. His father said military counselors "broke him." They confused him, his father stated, making his son believe that his dream of a life in the military was a pipe-dream, at best and a nightmare, at worst. Then, to add insult to injury, Sgt Russell's commanding offi cer relieved the soldier of his firearm (for, what is a soldier without his gun?). And some where, in the midst of this seemingly unavoidable tragedy, this high-maintenance human soldier-ant began to break for lack of sus tenance, and when he did, he did the unthinkable. He attacked and killed his own! It has happened before. The history of war is replete with instances where human sol diers lost grip on their behaviors, turned on their com rades and wreaked friendly vengeance. The Romans suffered it. Napoleon's legions, slogging through Russian snow, succumbed as much to each other as they did to the Russian winter. Even Nazi soldiers sent to murder defenseless Jews were quietly reported to have turned on each other, in the midst of their brutal business. And we here, in the United States, in every. war we've fought, have also seen instances where fellow sol diers have lost sight of which side they were on. It seems to go with the terri tory. Human beings are not biologically built for war! But we keep on trying, anyway. Maybe, one day we'll get it right. Perhaps, somehow, we'll discover the secret of the soldier-ant, impervious to all, but starvation. But until then, I suppose we shall simply have to contend with the fact that in wars especially in, senseless wars we human beings are apt to lose our humanity. Black American Insight cohtlnued from page 4-A this woman, who played a piv otal role in the abolitionist movement; brought freedom to slaves in the South; fought for passage of the 14th and 15tli Constitutional Amend ments (right of Black men to vote); who joined Sojourner Truth on the lecture circuit; donated her own home and money to support the Underground Railroad, and who joined Susan B. Anthony in the women's Suffrage movement deserves national recognition Now that you know more about her, remember Frances Ellen Watkins Harper's name and her words. Share and discuss her speeches and poems on enlightened womanhood and motherhood with your daughters, granddaughters and nieces as insurance for their future. Then bring in your sons, grandsons and nephews. They need to know about her, too. Harambee! :D c s: )> -< let's Do Something About Black America S everal times a year a conference on the State of Black America is held. At these conferences, the State of Black America is discussed in great detail. All the problems that face and hinder Black folks are laid bare on the table at these educational seminars. At one time these pep rallies were good because they made Black Americans feel good for a while. Now these conferences are a bore and a waste of time. If you have seen one, you have seen them all. Usually, the same people are on the discussion panels and they point to the same problems that have plagued Black folks for at least a century. We still need these conferences and they can be of tremendous use to the Black community and America. What the conference needs to do is to stop identifying the problems, the road-blocks and their causes and get to work trying to come up with solutions for these problems. We need to stop talking about what we need to do and get down to the business of actually doing what we need to do to improve the State of Black We"talk about the high number of young Black men that are locked away in pri sons all across this land. But, Black America I ask you, what are we doing about this? Are we waiting for somebody else to deal with this problem for us? We talk about the need to have affordable homes, to be able to get loans and the need for Blacks to have opportunities. Again I ask you Black America what are we doing to solve the problem? We ought to know by now that talk alone isn't get ting the job done. Hardly a conference is held where the problems of high school dropouts and teenage pregnancy don't come up. But what are we doing to solve these problems? Yes, some individuals are trying to actually solve the problems, but their efforts are like trying to bail all the water out of the Mississippi River with a thimble We talk about the declining number of Blacks in college and the inability of Blacks to find good, livable, wage-paying jobs with good benefits. Again, what is Black America doing about "TT this problem? The problems Black people face have been thoroughly identified and c discussed. )> These problems have been en with us for more than a century. How much longer are -1 we going to live with these Z hindrances to an ideal Black America? The answer should m be no longer. We need to get C: busy like last year. z "D c: OJ c en ::t m c m < m Bollving Occurs More Often Than You Think :::D < -1 c: m en c The incident that occurred recently at Walker Middle School shouldn't surprise anyone. Incidents of bullying go back even before I started school. The difference is today, it can get more vicious and it is much more violent. There are kids who attend school that have passive per sonalities. Some kids consid,. er them weak or even call them "nerds" pr "sissY:" This is very painful to a kid who is just looking for someone to call a ffiend. . We all know how cruel kids cart be. They can say and do things that even some adults find offensive. Should we attribute that to their upbringing or their peer influence? Both may be cul prits; but the final choice is with the individual. Bullying only works through fear and intimidation. When the bully finally is confronted by someone who won't back down, his cover is blown and his invin cibility is destroyed. No one should have to deal with a bully. They need to be weeded out within all school systems and not just ignored or accepted. Remember Mike Tyson? He used the act of bullying to scare all of his opponents in the ring 'Ma-st of them were so afraid .of him the:v would lose the fight befon!"it even started. Then Tyson met Jam.es "Buster" Douglas and Evander Holyfield. Both men displayed grit and would not allow Tyson to bully them. Bullies select their targets well. They dare not seek out anyone they think they will have a problem with, and if C they do, they make sure to "TT have their crew with them. :::D c They also won't mess with a kid who tends to be -..... unknown. Since they know nothing about you, they don't know how to approach you. I'm not advocating for any child -to fight a bully, but I am telling them to point these punks out and don't be tell -a. teacbert dean, or principal.-If that doesn't work, tell your parents when you get home. I know some parents will pass it off as you being weak, but nothing could be further from the truth. It takes more courage to point out these thugs, than it takes to be one. 4 7.' 7 -z.<:?. vo z c: e:c.7.k:Z:,7.g _f<.:;, ,_. ?/' ... -#if .... A s l-;< : n st:::t'-.u .. ::.K l ... ..., ..

Before you decide to hire a lawyer to whom you a.t e being rt>ferre d ask that lawyer for qu'..I.i.6CAtions and experience in writing. Letter To The Editor Activist Disputes Article I am writing to briefly tell my side of the story with reference to an article that appeared in the Tampa Tribune dated May 1, 2009, "NAACP Steers Clear." The president of the NAACP made statements regarding me and the actions of the NAACP. He started by saying he invited me and Mr. Jarvis El-Amin to the NAACP prearranged meeting held on Tuesday, April 28, 2009 with Supervisor of Elections, Phyllis Busansky. We were invited by NAACP political chair, Robin Lockett. He further stated that Brother Jarvis and I filed a complaint with. the NAACP on both of our behalves. The truth is the complaint was field by Brother Jarvis on his behalf and not me. He merely asked the NAACP to investigate the nonfactual attacks by the white media, and to investigate the issue of equity and fairness of the reporting. I want to state for public consumption that I was hired by the Supervisor of Elections Office to promote voters education in the Black community. I passed out thousands of "No Match/No Vote" flyers at the Blake-Middleton footPratticin g Law ln: ball game and in the community. I hired a number of workers to drop flyers at churches and social events. I put together three soul food Sundays that were open to the public to come out and ask questions and get facts and information from Supervisor of Elections, Buddy Johnson. My company also put together an outdoor community rally that was a voter's registration and educational rally. I served food and drinks as an incentive for people to come out. The cost of this rally was paid for from my pay. I paid Taylor Rental Company $1,204.09 to rent tables, chairs, a state, and a generator. I contacted providers for giveaways and I had other expenses such as gas. I also provided transportation for people to go vote without any regards to party affiliation or candidate. This cost voters nothing. My company made a small profit from this endeavor that did not come close to the $630,000 others were paid. All I ask for is fairness. Thank you for this opportunity.

As dedicated as Sanford "Dr. San Man" Harper, IT has been to helping youth, he's often reached out to the community for help with different initiatives. Now, he appears to have gotten at least some of the help he needs. The State of Florida's Juvenile Justice Department has agreed to use his youth organization, Juveniles United In A Community Effort (J.U.I.C.E.), for youth working off community service hours. He's also managed to bring Bank Atlantic aboard, and his group has been per forming various projects for seniors all over the city. "Right now, our goal is to help senior citizens by cleaning up their yards and performing other jobs." "We also are blessed to have been getting items donated for our thrift store, but more is always needed, because the demand is so great." San Man said coming soon, they will be tutoring neighborhood youth twice a week. "All we need to that started is about teers. We've also been invited to 7 cities and countries to spread our good will and aid to those in need." "None of this would be possible without the helping hand of the people. We are all aware of the challenges our youth face today, and we just want to play a part in keeping them off the streets and involved in positive endeavors."

In difficult times like these, the promises of God can be easily forgotten and hope in His word could be lost. It may seem as if our current circumstances are so dark that we will not have the strength to make it through, but the word of God says differently, states William Sanders. Romans 5:3-5 (KJV) says, not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; and patience, expe rien_pe, and experience, hope: and hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us." God never intended for tri als and tribulations to take away eur-' to strengthen and root us deeper in hope and faith in the Lord Jesus Ghrist . 'l'he-. "Hope and Celebration: 'fn Time. -Like These" conce'rt seeks to refocus the hearts and minds of the community back on God's word and bring back to remembrance that our hope in the Lord Jesus Christ is not in vain; we sl),g.J,l-Jsl celebrate all that He has done for us and all that He is, Sanders further explained. The concert will feature Gospel artists/choirs BibleBased Fellowship (Carrollwood) Mass Choir and Dance Ministry, Mo Than Conquerors, G-86, District 5 Boys, and JJuan Lucas as they minister unto the presence of God and the people through their God-given gifts as the community comes together to exhort one another and lift up the mighty name of Jesus Christ. In Isaiah 40:31 (KJV), "But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with the wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk and not faint Our hope in Jesus Christ is what gives us the strength and endurance to get through these difficult times. So come out and celebrate with members of the community to inspire, encourage, and bring back hope and celebra tion in times like these!

If the officiating doesn't get better, somebody might end up with a career ending inJury. The Los Angeles Lakers vs. the Houston Rockets series has been a football game or a professional wrestling match. Referees are missing fouls, making the wrong calls and losing control of the game. The outcome of games is being determined by referees and not the players. One such game that really points this out is the Dallas vs. Denver game. Two glaring and intention al fouls were ignored, allow-ing a player to make a last second winning shot. The NBA needs to call its game officials in for a stern talk about improving the game calling and getting control over the players or get some body else to officiate.

Blount was arrested Dec. 4 after sheriffs deputies intercepted 11 pounds of marijuana sent to him at a relative's house. Investigators said they found another 18 pounds in a subsequent search ofhis home. Although Judge Craig Hedric did not sentence Blount to the maximum 10 years in prison, he rejected Blount's claim that the marijuana was intended for per sonal use and to share with friends. "Cheech and Chong would have had a hard time smoking that much," Hedric told Blount. Hedric fined Blount $10,000 and ordered him to surrender two vehicles and $34,000 in cash seized in the bust. Blount was a first-round draft pick the Chicago Bulls in 1993.

I Got To Tell This I C"'f\ o you recall the days of having secrets when you were growing up? There were things that you knew or saw and you couldn't tell anyone. Remember when one of your friends wanted to tell you something, but before they did they said, ''You can't any body". Well Paul in his letter to the Ephesians in 3:1-13, reveals to them something that has been a secret and had not yet been revealed. For too long they had been living and strug-gling not knowing who they were and what was available to them Sometimes not knowing some important .information might cause you to live a life beneath your privileges. But God wants you to be in the know. God wants you to know all that is available to you to help you live a rich and quality life. During the ti.me of this writing there were two groups of people; Jews and Gentiles. The Gentiles want ed to be Christians, but they did not want to become a New St. Matthew Missionary Baptist Church 1006 South 50th Street Tampa, Florida 33619 813-242-6268 www.nsmmbc.com PASTOR'S ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION PASTOR ALEc F.

WINDELL ROBERSON Choir Director Jew. Groups and denomina tions have a way of causing a division within the body of Christ. People allow social status and social accomplishments to divide the house of God and keep cer tain people out. But Paul reveals knowl edge that would change the church forever. Gentiles were considered to be the outcast of believers. Here Paul reveals to them that you are no longer outcast and you do not have to conform to the Jews.' He says that God has chosen and decided to do three things with them, the Gentiles; 1) make them fel low heirs; 2) be of the same body; and 3) be partakers of his promise (vs. 6). As God brings individuals in He makes them fellow heirs.

By being part of the same body means that you are connected to the same Lord, the same Jesus, and the same God Since you are partakers of the promise, the same word that He promised others He promises to you. People must stop the belief that one group in the body of Christ is better than the other and all must become like them. No one groi.rp has a monopoly on anything related to the promise of God. No one has to conform to a specific denomination to be a true believer in Christ. The secret is out; we are all entitled to the same blessings. Paul makes it personal. Being able to reveal this secret and tell of this mystery is a great honor for Paul. This is one thing that he loves to tell. By being able to tell of the mystery is also humbling. Paul believes that he was not the most favorable, the most liked, the best educated, or anything else to be a ble to have th e opportunity to tell of this mystery. Paul says that he was the least of all people (vs. 8). The only reason he is able to tell it and speak of it is because of grace. God could have chosen to reveal this mystery to the world, but He chose Paul. Belo,:ed all must accept the privilege of making a rev e la tion to others about the mystery of God with humility. No matter what the ministry, understand that the only reason you are able to do it is because of the grace of God. This is a secret you can tell. Tell someone that God has made a place for them. Reveal to someone the truth that they don' t have to change groups or lose their spiritual identity to be a kingdom builder.

The show was broadcast on Sunday mornings beginning at 9 a.m. The show's host and creator, Michelle B. Patty said at the time the decision to cancel her show came as no surprise. Mrs. Patty said she considers the cancellation of her show a form of censorship, and this past Saturday, she organized a picketprotest in front of the Station on North Howard Avenue. "We had between 70 and 100 people show up. I was also told we were overheard outside during the live broadcast of the Jetie B. Wilds Show. ''What I'm most proud of is that we were able to unite as a community. That was pow erful. We're going back again this Saturday at the same time." Mrs. Patty said she was also happy to have community activists Michelle Williams and Connie Burton, as well as businessman Jarvis El-Amin join the protest. "We're not going away. No justice, no peace will bP. our banner. This is censorship and won't tolerate this in our community. We really appreciate so many people showing up on a Mother's Day weekend. We had people come from Lakeland and other areas, even some from out-of-state." Mrs. Patty said if no rules were violated on her show, it shouldn't have been taken off the air. "I want the managers and staff of WTMP to know we are open for dialogue to resolve this issue. But, we will continue to protest until this issue has been resolved. We aren't going to allow our people to be disrespected this way. "We're putting everyone on notice that we will take a stand if we've been treated unfair ly, no matter where it may be." Mrs. Patty said Saturday's gathe;rin}!; was quite <;1n accomplishment and proof that the people c.an unite under one cause. "I also_owe a debt of gratitude to those people who were scheduled guest on shqws at the statio!!, and refused to cross-our p{cket line." . Mrs. Patty said everyone needs to listen to WMNF 88.5 FM ti\dio 'Sunday a.f 9 a.m. She will be a guest on the Empowerment Hour and tney will be talking about the cen sorship issue. Reporter Leon B.

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA What's up everybody! My name is Marsha I'm 47 years old been living in Tampa Park for about 15 now. I ar:n 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.

Common all e rgy symptoms include sneezing, wheezing, runny nose, and itchy, watery, red eyes. These symptoms can be triggered by a number of stimuli, such as: Pollen from trees, grass es and weeds Dust that contains dust mites, pollen mold and animal dander as well as irritants Furry animals, such as cats, dogs, rabbits and other pets Fungi, including molds too small to be seen with the naked eye. Managing The Symptoms Ex ercise indoors whenever possible or find a place that's somewhat removed from trees, bushes or blossoming plants. If you are going to be outside, whether for a jog, .running errands or attending a function such as a wedding or baseball game, make sure to change outfits when you get home and launder the items worn outdoors as soon as you can to limit exposure to allergens in the home. You ll a lso n ee d t o wash your h ands and rinse your eyes in cold w a t e r to c l ea r r e sidual poll en.

Boots Allameua From Grand Hustle Records T.I. And ALFAMEGA T.I. has banished Alfamega from the Grand Hustle Records family. Alfamega was scandalized earlier this week when the SmokingGun.com published a report and purported legal documents saying that Mega was an infor mant for the drug enforce ment administration during a trial on a heroin trafficker. The allegations obviously didn't sit well with T.I., who himself is going to jail because one of his body guards decided to work with the authorities in Tip's well-publicized 2007 gun-buying sting. The Grand Husde CEO's voice was heard loud and clear as he read a statement on Atlanta's 107.9, according to Misslnfo tv.
