Feature Hillsborough Student Recovers After Hit Bv Truck On Tuesday morning, Shannon Moss was waiting to ride a HARTline bus to Hillsborough High School, where she's a sopho more. It was a regular routine for her, and this morning was no different than others. What would happen later could have been tragic. Shannon said her memories of that day are vague and cloudy, but she does remember some details. As the bus approached, Shannon said she dropped her I-Pod. "I was going to get on the bus, when I dropped my IPod. I picked it up, and dropped it again." Shannon said all she remembers after that was bending down to get her I Pod, and hearing someone blowing their horn. According to reports, Shannon was struck by a truck when she ran back into traffic to retrieve the I Pod. She sustained a fractured arm, deep laceration to her leg, and bruises to her face. She was hospitalized for her injuries and released later that day. Shannon's mother, Vertyle Moss, said God was with her, beca'use things ha.ve turned out a lot worse. "So many things go through your mind when you get a call that your child has been in an accident. The driver was shaken and called 9-1-1. He and the driver of the HARTline bus stayed with Shannon until the ambulance arrived." Shannon said she'll return to the hospital in a week to have stitches removed and for follow up treatment. Ms. Moss said prior to this accident, Shannon hadn't sustained any serious injuries. "Her siblings were shaken by this, and I texted them to lei them know she was alright. Her. father couldn't w .heh he found out. Even some of her classmates have checked on her." Ms. Moss said Shannon will be sore for a few days but should recover. "Again I say, God has blessed her. She's still in a lot of pain, and the medication makes her feel sleepy, so she's getting a lot of rest. I'm just glad it wasn't more serious." Ms. Moss said she's raised children as a foster parent, and treats them all as if they were her own. With SunTrust business solutions, efficiency is more than just a model.

Where Is Evervbodv Elseil r_r.nsborough County Commissioner Rose Perlita is her name to a growing list of public offi-cials and celebrities who are coming out against bullying. Among those names are Gov. Charlie Crist, C State Attorney Mark Ober and President Barack Obama. We would add our names to that list. But as we do, we c pause for a moment, to ask you ifyou'lljoin us. And why Z not? For, we are told the disease ofbullying is by far more c( pandemic than any illness America faces anywhere in our nation. And the disease is preying primarily on our chil-e dren. en w According to national research, more than half of Amer-ican school children are, at least, on occasion, directly inrc volved in bullying, either as perpetrators, victims or w both. > There is also a new, more virulent strain ofbullying that W has taken its place on playgrounds and classrooms in ffi schools across our nation. We're referring to the scourge :I: of the so-called "don't-snitch" mentality. Perhaps, you've heard of this infection, air-borne from the prison culture. m Lurking in the shadows oflocker rooms, backs of buses :: and being transmitted by blogging, texting and other ll. high-tech means of infection, the warning not to snitch has doomed countless boys and girls into a no-win situaW tion of continuous terror. :I Psychologists explain the horrors brought on by not :: being able to hon'orably announce victimization is a '9 major reason for many of the bloody responses, which ..... w have occurred in too many American schools. We are Z also informed that children are not the only abusers or victims of bullying. Teachers and administrators are also w victims and victimizers of this quiet influenza that is cripcn piing our school system a day at a time. Therefore, we applaud County Commissioner Rose Fer-it lita. But we must also ask, "Where is everybody else?" 0 ..... LL I something You Should Think About I D o you have health insurance? Have you ever tried leaving town and getting your prescriptions filled for two or more weeks? No, you probably won't be able to have your filled BEFORE you leave unless it is within one or two days of the refill date. Several of our staff members have recently overheard horror stories about patients who had tried to have their prescriptions filled in advance because of travel One hapless patient iost a week's worth of medicine by dropping his medicine container in the dishwater. For his clumsiness, he was required to pay for a week's worth of medicine when he attempted to have his prescriptions refilled, a week too early. Another couple had planned a seven-day cruise and thought they might get their medicines refilled in advance because they would likely run out. Uh-uh! Bad idea! Snake-eyes are what they got! Our point is this. When it comes to the health-care in-dUstry, insurance companies need a dose of greater com< passion for patients, especially patients who must travel. o:t In fact, we wonder what pharmacy policies are for areas W prone to hurricanes when emergen,cy officials recome, mend residents have at least two weeks' medicine supc(ll. I py. Remembering The Fallen 0 n Monday, May 25th, the country will pay tribute to all of the soldiers. Memorial Day is an official holiday designed for this purpose. The first Me morial Day Observation, known as Decoration Day, dates back to May 5, 1866, when a ceremony was held in Waterloo, New York. This city is recognized as the offi cial birthplace of Memorial Day and the village was cred ited with being the place of origin. But, the term Memorial Day wasn't used until1882, and it wasn't until after World War II that the use of Memorial Day became widespread. In 1967, it was officially named Memorial Day by Federal law. On June 28, 1968, the United States legislature passed the Uniform Holidays Bill. It was at that time that the official day of recognition was changed to the last Mon day in the month of May, and created a three-day weekend. There is no script writftfn as ,fl : to how the observation should take place However, some standard ceremonial events include a national moment of remembrance that takes place at 3 p. m. Another tradition is to fly the U. S. flag at half mask from dawn until noon. This year, President Barack Obama will place a wreath on the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, at Arlington National Cemetery. The Tomb contains the remains of unknown American soldiers from World War I, World War II, the Korean Conflict, and until 1998, the Vietnam War. Each year, veterans, family members, and members of the community celebrate the holiday in its own manner. They visit cemeteries and place flags on the graves of the fallen soldiers. They also place flowers or other decorations on the graves, have parades, picnics, barbecues, and other forms of celebra tion. Memorial Day originally began as a way of remember ing soldiers killed during the war. However, through the years, the tradition has changed to honor all de ceased veterans, both men and women, who died during the war or in peace times Catherine Mulurave Zimmermann And Interracial Marriages Decades ago while in high school, William Shakespeare rocked my world when I read Othello, the Moor of Venice, written in 1622 and learned that Othello and Desdemona were an interracial cou ple. Many of you remember how the entertainer Sammy Davis, Jr. rocked America's world when he married up and-coming movie star Mai Britt. Well, imagine my surprise when, while searcbing through Voyages: The Transatlantic Slave Database, I came across a few pictures and stories of Africans who were captured, sold into slavery and then freed. One of the stories involved former slave Catherine Mulgrave Zimmermann who was shown with her interracial family in 1851. Only when the institution of the European slave trade reared its ugly head did inter racial marriages create a stir and become as socially unacceptable and taboo. Granted, mar r iages between couples of different religious faiths had long been socially unacceptable. Anyway, it was interesting to read about Zimmermann and her life and her interracial marriage, in the mid 18oo's when interracial marriages were banned in sev eral countries and socially un acceptable. Named Gewe at birth, Mulgrave was "probably" born and raised in the seaport town of Luanda, a Portuguese port on the Angolan coast in 1827. Gewe was a descendant of a Christian family of African chiefs and of a mulatto mother. At the age of six, Gewe was .hicked along with a group of other children with offers of "goodies" if she and her play mates would come aboard the schooner slave-ship Heroina. During the slave ship's voyage to Cuba, the ship was destroyed in a storm off of Jamaica, killing many of the slaves. However, Gewe survived the storm. Because Jamaica was under British rule, at the time, and because an 1807 Act had abolished slavery in British ter ritories, Gewe and the other slave survivors were granted their freedom and were assigned as apprentices to British families. Thus, Gewe was given to the Jamaica governor s family, The Earl of Mulgrave. There she assumed the name of Catherine Mulgrave. Mulgrave was educated in a school run by Moravian mis sionaries and became a school teacher of freed slaves. Moreover, in 1842, she joined 40 other West African Chris tians who accepted the Basel Mission's offer to be "repatri ated to Akropong, Africa, on the Gold Coast. There, she mel and married George Thompson, had two children and per formed missionary work. Two years after divorcing Thompson, Mulgrave rocked the Basel Mission movement when she quietly married Johannes Zimmermann, a German missionary. Challenging the mission's policies on interracial socializing and marrying with out the Mission's permission, the Zimmermanns thwarted the mission's efforts to break up their marriage with the threat of bringing international CONTINUED ON NEXT PAGE

PRESENTS The premium costs for the over 26,000 households in the City of Tampa with flood insurance policies has just gotten lower. Due to efforts of several City of Tampa depart ments, residents will see a de crease in their standard flood policy rates. The Community Rating System, which is adminis tered by the Federal Emer gency Management Agency (FEMA), awards points to a community for the activities it undertakes to address flooding and other hazards. The City of Tampa has been awarded a Class 6 rating, which will reduce residents' premiums by 20 percent off the standard policy rates. Ratings directly affect Tampa residents, not only be cause they reflect increased efforts to reduce flooding, but better ratings translate into lower costs for flood insur ance. Each rating level below Class 10 reduces flood insur ance costs by five percent. Policyholders were receiving an average discount of $105 off the standard flood policy rates. On May 1, 2009 that dis count jumped up to an aver age of $142 per policy. The total savings amount to al most $3 7 million p e r year for flood insurance policy hold ers in the city. This is among the highest average savings in the nation. Many recipients of these savings do not even know they receive them and are unaware of the City's ef forts to reduce their policy costs.

HOLTON Sentinel City Editor Several years ago, Samuel "Nate" Johnson formed a track and field competition event for area children. The purpose of hosting the event and inviting other cities to participate was to promote track and field among Tampa youngsters. Since its inception in 1991, the event known as BAYTAF, (Bay Area Youth Track And Field, Inc.), has hosted a track and field competition during Memorial Day Weekend. This year, the event will take place May 22nd through May 24th, at the Sam Horton Stadium at Jefferson High School, 4401 W. Cypress Street. Johnson, who is also the Meet Director for the competition .said, "In addition to providing an event so that local youngsters don't have to travel, we feel this is a good way for youngsters to be active." H e further stated that this year, a new division has been added. The Pee Wee Division is for youngsters 6 years and under. They will compete in the 55m, 200m, long jump, and shot-put events. ''This group is for toddlers up to six-year-olils. We're not pushing competition at Nate Johnson is shown at the BAYfAF Track and Field Competition. He founded the event 18 years ago. this age and the standards won't apply, but are going to recognize them. They come to practice with their older brothers and sisters and they want to do what they do. It's a good way for them to be active," Johnson said. He said there are 30 to 40 youngsters registered from cities ranging from Miami to Tallahassee, as well as some from out of state. As a result of adding this new division, the Primary Division is now composed of 7 and 8 year olds, only. Youngsters involved in -track and field are required to travel to other cities to compete in various meets. Johnson created BAYTAF to promote the sport and allow youth to compete with athletes around the state and the country. Proceeds from the event helps offset the cost of local youngsters to attend those events. Johnson said participants in BA YTAF travel to Tampa from the Southeastern United States as well as throughout Florida and the Caribbean Islands. Prior to creating BAYTAF, Johnson founded the Christian Cruisers Youth Track and Field Ministry in 1986. The purpose of the organization, that started with his children and quick ly grew to include neighborhood youngsters, is to promote keeping youngsters healthy and active, to help them develop into skilled athletes, and to properly train them in the sports they wish to pursue. The meet will feature Open and Masters Competition on Friday, and on Saturday and Sunday, local athletes will compete as well as National AAU/USATF age group champions on an international competition.

Should Michael Vick Be Allowed To Plav In The NFl;J After serving almost two years in federal prison, Michael Vick was freed Wednesday to return to his home in Hampton, Virginia. On Friday, he'll be reporting to his probation officer to start his 3-year probationary period. A few area sports enthusiasts were asked if they thought Vick should return to the NFL. These are their responses. Former Super bowl Chicago Bear player and All Sports Community Services founder, Tyrone Keys: "I think he should be definitely allowed to come back. He's paid his debt to society and .,.," a second chance." "I hope this time he will utilize his status to represent himself in a repented mariner and prepare himself for the real test." Keys said he thinks the team who gets him should take full advantage of his talent inside and outside of football. "I still think he can be a leader, and he definitely should continue to play qmirterback. He revolutionized the game because he's such a threat. I look for great things from him." "Michael Vick has repented, accepted his punishment, and stood tall like a man. I want our youth to see how you can overcome adversity." Retired Boys And Girls Club leader, Wilds: "Yes, he should be allowed to come back. That' s why we have a criminal justice system. Otherwise, what purpose of the Many have done a lot worse and just like them, he should be able to keep his job." "I think his skills will b e fine, but just getting reaccustomed to the speed of the game will be his toughest test. His maturity level should be better. He also should go where he'll be allowed to play the game, and I think he should be what he's always been, and that's a quarterback." Wilds said some coaches stay out of football a long time and they are allowed to come back, so it should be no different for Vick. "Society shouldn't punish him, because the system has already done that." Former high school coach, Charles "Chuck" McDonald: "I feel he definitely should be allowed to return. I've heard some rumors about him coming back at other L---=--_. positions, and I still have issues with the situation that got him in trouble, because it was blown out of proportion by the media." McDonald said there were a lot more big name NFL players involved in this and he feels Vick was the fall guy for all of them. "He's a gifted athlete and I hope he hasn't lost much. He fell on the sword, paid his dues, and he should be allowed to co_me back." "He accepted and admitted his responsibility on the entire issue, and now it's time to move on. I don't' think he's a bad person, and some guidance, he1ll be fine. Just let him play and I think he'll silence a lot of critics." Reporter Leon B.

Sports lick left Prison Belore Dawn To Beuin Home Confinement MICHAEL VICK RICHMOND, Va. -Suspended NFL star Michael Vick left a Kansas prison before dawn Wednesday to begin home confinement in Virginia, one of his attorneys said, the latest step on a journey that Vick hopes will lead to his reinstatement. Vick, who turns 29 in June, slipped undetected past waiting cameras and reporters to leave a federal penitentiary in Leavenworth after serving 19 months for financing a dogfighting ring. He was headed to Virginia by car to begin two months of home confinement at his five-bedroom house in Hampton before a scheduled released from federal custody on July 20. He was accompanied by his fiance, Kijafa Frink, and they were traveling back to Virginia with several members of a security team arranged for by Vick's team oflawyers and advisers. The drive from Leavenworth to Hampton was expected to take about 19 hours. "It's a happy day for him to be starting this part of the process," Larry Woodward, Vick's Virginia-based attorney, said. "He looks forward to meeting the challenges he has to meet." Humane Society Will Work With Vick RICHMOND, Va. -Michael Vick wants to work with an unlikely ally -the Humane Society of the United States -on a program aimed at eradicating dogfighting among urban teens. Society president Wayne Pacelle said Tuesday that he recently met with Vick at the federal prison in Leavenworth, Kan., and that Vick said he wants to work with the group once he's out offederal custody. Billy Martin, one of Vick's attorneys, said Vick requested the meeting. "Michael is very interested in putting this together," Martin said. Michael lick Saga Example II Media Double-Standard BY LEON B. CREWS Sentinel Staff Writer (An Analysis) Michael Vick was released from Leavenworth Prison in Kansas after serving nearly 2 years for running a dog fighting organization. The former Atlanta Falcons superstar admitted his guilt and apologized for his actions in 2007 before the NFL suspended him, and the Atlanta Falcons removed him from their ros ter. When the news came out about Vick in 2007, the media made sure America would view him as the Black version of Charles Manson. It wasn't just the 8-PCA that raked him over the coals, it was other orga nizations, sportscasters, and the ever impressionable media. Now that Vick has been released from prison, they are ready to crank it up again. There are active players in the NFL who have committed acts considerably worse than Vick. Even more important, there are white athletes whose sions seem to never gain 2 years worth of press cover age, and they aren't vilified as Vick has been. So, why is society so for giving of white athletes and their problems, but when an African American athlete makes a mistake, the media and society wants them lynched? There is a double-standard in professional sports, the judicial system, and society in general. Black athletes today, as they were decades ago, are held at a different standard than white athletes. More is expected of them as athletes and as peo ple. They aren't expected to make human mistakes or use bad judgment. They must never reflect any of the things they've endured growing up or the people they've associated with their entire lives. Vick will return to the NFL, but if the media has it's way, he will never play the position of quarterback again. Also, depending on what team he goes to, he will be treated like a sexuai predator and with three years of probation still to go, he will constantly be under a microscope. Before Vick's release, one broadcast journalist standing outside Leavenworth, talked about how he would travel from Kansas to his home in Hampton, Virginia. She implied that Vick should be watched closely to make sure he doesn't stray away and terrorize the coun try. She even mentioned the fact that he has to report to his probation officer Friday in Norfolk, Virginia. Vick knows what he needs to do, and if given the chance, he will put all this behind him and once again become one of the greatest athletes to ever play in the NFL. But for all that to happen, the prejudiced and doublestandarded media has to back off and allow this man's life to return to whatever normal is these days All I ask is thatother athletes be held to the same standard as Vick, especially the white steroid users, and criminals who virtually get no press. Falcons owner: lick Has Paid Debt To Societv FORT LAUDERDALE -Arthur Blank won't bring Michael Vick back to Atlanta. That doesn't mean the Falcons owner wouldn't want' to see the tarnished quarterback get a second NFL chance. Hours after Vick left a federal penitentiary after serving most of a 23-month sentence for financing a dogfighting ring, Blank who once gave Vick a $130 million contract -said Wednesday the oncecharismatic star is taking positive steps by wanting to work with humane soci-eties and ARTHUR making other BLANK changes in his life "I believe in second chances," Blank said shortly before the NFL owners' meetings ended in South Florida.

Sports commentarv: let Michael Vick Plav Football BY ROLAND MARTIN When Michael Vick com pletes home confinement in July, he will have served the 23-month prison sentence imposed after he pleaded guilty to federal dogfighting charges. -After his release from a Kansas prison Wednesday, he headed to his home in. Virginia to serve the final two months under home confinement, because all the beds at halfway houses in the area are taken. But that hasn't deterred the Vick haters who are still in an uproar over the heinous details of his dog fighting kennel. Yes, reading the details of the treatment of the dogs, including the killing of some of them, could make anyone sick. Yet what's the point of sentencing someone to jail, then having them serve their time and be released if we still want to imprison them for the rest of their lives? Frankly, I'm sick of Americans who talk all day about "do the crime, then do the time," then still want to treat a man like a criminal when he gets out -of prison. This doesn't just apply to Michael Vick. Look at all the individuals who are sent to prison, get out. and then can't find a job. Why? Because they have the Scarlet Letter on their record, which is a big fat "F" for felon. Don't think I'm looking for any sympathy for someone who goes to jail. I firmly believe that you deserve all that you get for breaking the law. But listen ing to some of these zealots go on and on and on about Vick needing to continue to be punished is ridiculous! The judge in Vick's case has imposed a number of restrictions. One of them is that he can't ever own a dog again. OK, gotcha. But to say the man shouldn't be allowed to play in the NFL is D-U-M-B. The crimes of which he was convicted had nothing to do with sports. Remember Wall Street star Michael Milken? When he was sent to jail for securities fraud, he was MICHAEL VICK banned from working on Wall Street again. I get that. He was an insider and allow ing him back into the finan cial game would have been atrocious. I get it when someone is convicted of molesting children that they can't live within a certain distance of a school or be left alone around children when released. But there is nothing related to Vick's crime that says he should not be allowed to play professional football. What is particularly galling is that, right now, you have any number of foot ball players who have beaten people -including their wives and girlfriends -served time for drunk driving or comntitted other crimes, yet they have resumed their careers. The same goes for teachers, radio and television politicians and others. ;, : So is this any different because it involved dogs?'A,.j-e we to say that the horrible treatment of dogs is vastly different than mistreatment of human beings? The critics will likely say, "These men are role models Kids look up to them. They should have no business on the field." Yet some of these same kids are living with fathers and mothers who are felons. So are we supposed to remove them from the home as well? Enough with the public bullying. Vick was sentenced and served his time. And now he's gotten out. If you want to be angry with him, But please, cut t!}e sanctimonious crap. He deserves to make amends and get on with his life. If you were in his shoes, you would want to do the same. AUTO ACCIDENT HELPLINE: Injured? Need a Doctor? Lawyer?

WILLIAMS Bengals' Whitwonh To LT; Smith To Plav RT ANDREW WHITWORTH And ANDRE SMITH CINCINNATI --The Bengals are overhauling their offensive line, which was their biggest problem last season. Coach Marvin Lewis moved guard Andrew Whitworth to left tackle for the start of the team's voluntary offseason workouts Tuesday. Top draft pick Andre Smith will line up at right tackle -a position he has never played when he reaches a contract agreement. Lewis said the moves should give the team stability at the tackle position. "I feel that locks us down for a lot of years," said Lewis, who has two years left on his contract. "That's two very important, key spots. It's for as long as I'm here." Duke's Henderson Signs With Agent GERALD HENDERSON DURHAM, NC --Duke's Gerald Henderson has signed with an agent and will remain in the NBA draft. The school said Tuesday the 6-foot-4 junior has signed with Am Tellem, becoming the lOth player under coach Mike Krzyzewski to leave early for the NBA. Henderson entered his name in the draft shortly before last month's deadline for underclassmen to declare. Henderson was a thirdteam Associated Press All American last season and led the Blue Devils with about 17 points per game. Duke reached the NCAA tournament's round of 16 and won the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament title. Still, Duke will have four starters back from a 30-win team, including Kyle Singler and Jon Scheyer. The NBA draft is June 25.

Harrison, the NFL Defensive Player of the Year, says he'll skip the Super Bowl champion's visit to the White House to meet Preside:fit Barack Obama on just as he did whenthe Steelers were honored by President George W. Bush in June 2006. "I didn't feel the need to go, actually," Harrison told Pittsburgh station WTAE-TV. "I don't feel like it's that big a deal to me." Harrison doesn't believe the invitation is all that special, saying if the Steelers hadn't beaten the Cardinals 27-23 with a last-minute rally, "He (Obama) would have invited Arizona.

After taking part in the Bills' voluntary minicamp practice earlier in the day, Owens pulled up at a new complex over looking the city's inner harbor, where a real estate agent waited at the front door.

JONGRUDEN BRISTOL, Conn. Former Tampa Bay coach Jon Gruden is replacing Tony Kornheiser on ESPN' s Monday Night Football broadcast team. Kornheiser cited a fear of flying in his decision to leave after three y ears. The network said Monday that Gruden will be in the booth with Mike Tirico and Ron Jaworski when the show starts its 40th season this fall Mavweather Set For Return To Ring vs. Marquez "If I could handpick a replacement of a football guy, I would cast a net and drag in Jon Gruden," Kornheiser said in a statement released by the network. "He is the two things you most want -smart and funny -and has the two things I don't -good hair and a tan. FLOYD MAYWEATHERJR. NEW YORK--When Floyd Mayweather Jr. walked away from boxing, he was widely considered the pound-for-pound king, the mythical mantle bestowed upon the best-in the game. Now that he's back, at least one person believes Mayweather still is: Lightweight champ Juan Manual whom he'll face in highly anticipated return. "I'm expecting the best Floyd Mayweather eve.r ," Marquez said on Tuesday at a news conference on the 80th floor of the Empire State Building to help launch the fight. "I'm putting in my mind that he never retired, so I'm expect ing the best." The two will meet on July 18 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, where tickets are scheduled to go on sale on Friday. They'll fight at a catch-weight of about 143 pounds, eight more than Marquez ha? ever fought and the lightest that Mayweather has been since 2005 Neither believes the weight will make much dif ference. Mayweather already has been in the gym for a couple of months, ever since giving his adviser Leonard Ellerbe the green-light to screen potential, opponents. Mayweather claims he's close to 147 pounds and pronounced himself fit after a run through Central Park on Tuesday. That's when Mayweather abruptly called it qutts, turning h,is attention to sh()w business. Gruden led the Bucs to the 2003 Super Bowl title but was fired after this past season after his team lost four straight games to miss the playoffs He worked as a guest analyst this year with the NFL Network during the draft and scouting com bine. "To join Mike and Jaws in the booth and to work alongside this top-notch team is going to be a real thrill," Gruden said. Gruden will make his debut with ESPN with a preseason game on Aug. 13, a Super Bowl rematch between the Arizona Cardinals and Pittsburgh Steelers. Rep.

Young Woman Fights laws Impacting People on Fixed Incomes-; As a youngster growing up in Tampa, one young woman had the opportunity to witness her father fight for others Today, the young woman has discovered that she has her father's fighting spirit. Ms. Delicia Stewart, the daughter of Attorney Delano Stewart, a Tampa native and longstanding member of the. legal community, is the national spokesperson for Grassroots Outreach for EmPower Consumers. She is-concerned about legislation that will help the environment at the expense of the people. "The American Clean Energy and Security Act of 2009 (ACES)," drafted by Chairman Henry A. Waxinan, of the Energy and Commerce Committee, and Chairman Edward J. Markey, of the Energy and Environment Subcommittee. She feels the bill will unduly shackle minorities living in 'th e southeast and the midwest with the highest electric rate increases in history. Ms. Stewart has already MS. DELICIA STEWART National Spokesperson for EmPower Consumers met with members of the U. S. Congress as well as with President Barack Obama's administration. "I am traveling coast to coast, community to commu nity; where there is a story to be told or a voice to be heard you will find me. We must guard against proposed new laws that are purportedly designed to help the environment, but which will increase electric bills so much that working people will not be able to make ends meet," Ms. Stewart said. Citing_statistics, Ms. Stewart. s aid in 2008, African American households with .annual pre-tax incomes ofiess than $50,000 spent roughly one-quarter of their income after taxes. She said consumer advocates predict the Waxman bill will lead to substantial price increases to consumers. She also cited the fact that during the past year, the number of unemployed indi viduals has risen by 5 million. "The unemployment rate of African Americans, now at 13.4%, has risen nearly twice that uf any other racial or ethnic group. Waxman's bill will not save the planet, but 1t will surely kill American families," she stated. EmPower Consumers was created to focus public policy makers, regulators, and industry on the financial impact and affordability element of the energy equation and its effect on the working middle class and economically disadvantaged consumers. "We support Congress, but we ask that in return Congress support us," Ms. Stewart said.

Jth Grader Writes Poem About The Homeless BY LEON B. CREWS Sentinel Staff Writer Jasmine Gued is a 7th grade student at Orange Grove Middle Magnet School. She s also very obser vant, and said she doesn't like to see people helpless on the side of the road with nothing to eat. "As a class assignment, I de cided to submit a poem about the homeless. My teacher gave me an A for my poem, and that made me feel good." Jasmine's mother, Carzette Mosley, said she and her daughter were riding and noticed a man running in and out of the woods in Thonotosassa. "We had seen him going o into the trash to feed himself. a: Jasmine always talks u. about what she'd do to help the homeless, and plans on < volunteering this summer at some of the area shelters 0 en w ::J JASMINE GUED Jasmine said she and her mom often talk about how people become homeless and she has a better understand ing of their situation I went on-line and found out there are between 700,000 and 2 million home less people in this country. I'm also aware that some of them are families with chil dren. I would like to do what ever I can to help them." Jasmine said she's striv ing to become an obstetri cian. These are a few lines from Jasmine's poem: "Imagine waking up in the morning and not know where you would lay your head the next night, because your home is being fore closed, or because you can't make rent. Imagine not knowing when your next meal would come. Could you survive without all our luxuries? "The American economist, Eli Siegel, is credited with saying if people really cared that poverty not be, it would not be.

The sad thing about it all is that it is not just the mar riages and families with unsaved people, but it is also happening to saved, sancti fied, and Holy Ghost filled families. There are many is sues that families must con tend with on a daily basis. In his letter to the church in Ephesus, Paul, writes to en courage the husbands, wives, and children.

This week's lesson seC lected from Ephesians 5:21-:i 33; 6:1-4 records Paul's ;::: words. C "Wives, submit yourselves to tn your own husbands, as unto the Lord" (vs. 22). This verse is one that is greatly quoted among couples. It is this verse that many use in debates and discussions to get wives to do what they consider to be right It is also this verse and the concept of submission that many wives have issue with The truth of the matter is, that it is the misquoting or lack of understanding of this verse that is causing the prob lem. The key to the fulfillment of this verse is the latter part; as unto the Lord. She is sub mitting to the husband, as though she is submitting to the Lord. It is really not to the man, but the Lord. Give him the same courte sy, respect, and honor as he stands in proxy for God. The wife's submission to the husband comes with great benefit. As she submits to him, then he becomes respon sible for her. As Christ was re sponsible for the safety, protection, and provider of the even as Christ also loved the upon what you think about church, and gave himself for them.

Local Small Businesses Close Down After Central Park Demolished THOMAS SCOTI City Council Chairman BY LEON B. CREWS Sentinel Staff Writer Prior to the riots of 1967, Central Avenue was the mecca of Black-owned businesses in Tampa. After the riots, Central Avenue was never rebuilt, and those businesses disappeared. With Central Park Village still alive and vibrant, some small businesses were able to stay alive and serve not just Central Park Village, but the surrounding area. However, homes; to the north of the public housing project began to disappear, and now Ceritral Park Village is no more. Also gone are most of the small businesses that were locat ed in the surrounding com munity. During last Thursday's City Council meeting, Chairman Thomas Scott asked what's being done to attract small businesses back into the area, now that plans are underway to build new apartment units and retail shops. City of Tampa Economic Development Administrator, Mark Huey, said. it's been difficult to attract sm;:tll the area with the relocation of residents from the "A rirlmber of folded because their market left. It's been a difficult . part of our redevelopment plan to bring them back. A portion of the project JEROME RYANS involves commercial businesses." Huey said opportunities for small businesses right now aren't good. "We hope that changes in the future once the projects planned for the area are complete." Chairman Scott asked Huey if the city offered any assistance to remaining businesses in the area that are struggling. "There's been a lot of engagement in conversations on the availability of grants, but I don't know the status of that right now," said Huey. Michael Hatchett, CRA Manager For Central Park Village and Tampa Heights, said the primary concern right now for the area is housing. "We need the people to serve the businesses in place first. We feel the impact would have been minimized if we had been able to stick to the development timetable for CPV. Also, we don't have TIF (Tax Increment Finance) resources for the area." Sam Harris, CPV Community Advisory Committee Chairman, said his group is concerned that the new project proposed for the area is not provid, OJ?p?rb:Inities for local businesses. "None of the contractors for the project are from this area. "It's been suggested we come up with ideas on how STARKES ROOFING, Residential & Commercial Leak Repairs No Job Too Small Or Too Large 20 Years Experience 5 Y ears Established In Seminole Heights Community :\'1111 Taking \pplkations For ment.

STARKES MICHAEL HATCHETI to deal with that. We think the city's Minority Business Enterprise Program should be a part of those discussions." Harris said it's really up to the people to step up and make sure this happens. "We have to speak up so if there are concerns, we can address them." "I work closely with Hatchett, and we inform the community as to what's going on. This is a great time for businesses to go into the area. We need to investing in the buying properties. Some kind of system needs to be put in place to help facilitate that process." Harris said remaining businesses are asking for help, but there's none to be given !. "There's no system in place to help them. We've talked about funds to help small businesses in the area, but nothing has been worked out as to where those funds will come from." Tampa Housing Authority Director, Jerome Ryans, said the problems with the area concerns everyone. ":M;ost of the businesses in that area were minority owned We knew it would be an issue when we decided to raze the complex. Our priority right now is providing housing. "Businesses are hurting all over, not just in that area. We hope once we get our project up and running, they will return. I'm glad city officials are looking into this. We all knew Central Park Village had a positi.ve impact on small businesses in the area. Our goal is to get the project done." Drop In Prooenv Values Will Impact East Tampa Revenues In a presentation during the Community Redevelopment Agency portion of Thursday's City Council meeting, it was announced that due to a drop in property values in East Tampa, revenues will be impacted a little over a million dollars. City of Tampa East Tampa Development Manager, Ed Johnson, said East Tampa has averaged $6.1 million in Tax Increment Finance (TIF) dollars over the .past two years. "Because of the drop, we'll be around $5.4 million. The projections are that there will be decreases for the next two years, a stabiliza tion in 2011, then a gradual increase in 2012." "One of the things we've budgeted for is $11 million for the completion of the 22nd Street Enhancement Project from Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard. To the junction where 22nd Street splits heading south. That $11 million is spread out over a 3-year period." Johnson said they also have funding in place for a stormwater project at Hillsborough Avenue and 30th Street. "We hope to pick up the .re,fainder of the 22nd S't;Teet to I-4 enhancement project when we see an increase or the financial market stabilizes and we're able to secure bonds based on future growth. ED JOHNSON "The retention pond projects aren't impacted by this, but additional capital improvement projects will be affected." Johnson said the facade project for 22nd Street won't be impacted. "Projects we planned for landscaping the medians on Hillsborough Avenue and 40th Street, and changing Columbus Drive from a one way to a two-way street will be put on hold for now. The enhancement project scheduled for 34th Street will also be put on hold. "What we have available now will only take care of the stormwater project and the 22nd Street project. The projects under programs and service won't be affect ed." Reporter Leon B. Crews can be reached at (813) 248-0724, or e-mailed at lcrews@flsentinel.com.

H e r e are a few suggestions: Chec k feet regularly for variations in skin color, sores, blisters and c alluses Many problems are first indicated by changes on the foot's surface, not by pain.

Foot pain isn't normal and you should not ignore it.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------, Local Entertainment ::0 0 s: Memorial oav Comedv Show To Feature BET Comedians On Sunday, May 24th at the Tampa Bay Performing Arts Center, several comedians will highlight what's being called "The Big Memorial Day Laugh It Off Extravaganza." The show will be hosted by local comedian, L.C., and headlined by Tony Roberts. Also appearing will be Michael Blackson, from the movie Next Friday, Benji Brown, Ryan Robinson, and Florida Comic Of The Year, Tight Mike. Roberts said he's appeared at the Improve in Tampa before, and loves to do shows in Tampa. "I have a high energy, unpredictable style of comedy. I never stop talking, I'm very animated, and I put on a show. I'm serious about what I do, and the people in Tampa know me." Blackson said he's also appeared at the Improv, but that was a long time ago. L.C. "I'm originally from West Mrica, and I relate to that and compare the different cultures in my routines. I've been doing this for 15 years now, and I write m y own material." Blackson said aside from comedy, he has an independent movie project going on, and he'd like to do more "I think it's a natural progression for any performer to turn to acting. You've got to do more TONY ROBERTS things if you want to make money. Your goal is to expand. "Stand up comedy will always be my base, no matter what other things I do. Every comic isn't a successful actor, and some drift away from stand up and concentrate only on acting. A real comedian always comes back. This is what pays the bills. Once you're known, things start happening pretty fast." Myran Sails of One Opt BENJIBROWN Entertainment and Abdul Aquil of A VP Incorporated are presenting the show. Sails and Aquil said this is their first big show together, and they started putting things together in February. "I had worked with some of -the comedians before, and it wasn't difficult rounding up the others," said Sails "Three of the comedians will be in our movie due for release, next year, "The SUNDAY MAY 24/09 MICHAEL BL.I\.CKSON Stand." We'll start shooting in 2010 in Tampa, and this will the first major Black comedy film shot in Tampa.

Producers and writers including StarGate, TheChristopher "Tricky" Stewart, Ne-Yo and Akon played key roles on 2006's "Going Home" and the new "Just Go," which came out Tuesday. Richie told Billboard.com that he has "already started" on another album, which he intends to helm himself, although he expects to bring in collaborators as well. "I've mastered the art of co-producing," Richie said. "No matter what, I have to have somebody else that sits across the room and looks at the big picture while I'm going in to get the second verse of the third song. I always need somebody in that room to back me up . James Carmichael did a great job all those years of just keeping me in focus, 'cause that's the key." Richie said he's been "sketching up some songs" for the project, drawing inspiration from his travels to promote his last few albums. "I go to every great club in the middle of Paris and sit in the corner and watch what people move to," he said. "Then I go to Berlin and check 'em out. I go to London and check 'em out, New Delhi ... And then I go back to the hotel room and, while I'm in that same mood, I start to write. Students Break Dance Record RICHMOND -In what the organizer jokingly calls a case of his "Michael Jackson obsession gone wrong," a group of College of William & Mary students has won the world record for most people to dance to the singer's "Thriller" simultaneously in one place. The 242-person routine was organized by longtime Jackson fan Kevin Dua, who was notified Friday by Guinness World Records of the accomplishment. The previous record .was 147 people in an event held last summer at a British secondary school. Dua, 21, spent the better part of the school year orchestrating the t, which was held April 19 at the college in Williamsbu!zf in eastern Virginia. "I've been a Michae'f! ol;"'.'lf. Jackson fan since I was $: ; years old. It was I grew up around," said Friday in a telephone interview. Dua also was inspired by Thrill the World, an event held each October in which groups of "Thriller" fans gather around the world to recreate the 1983 video, a horror-film spoof featuring Jackson dancing among a troupe of zombies. Last year's event included more than 4,100 dancers in 10 nations, according to the Thrill the World event Web site. Man Shot Outside Drake Concen In Chicago DRAKE A 21-year-old man was shot outside a Drake concert early Saturday morning in Chicago. The Chicago Sun-Times reported that an unidentified man was shot in the buttocks outside the House of Blues around 4 a.m. when more than 1,000 people were leaving the show by the Lil Wayne protege and Sly Polaroid. The victim, listed in stable reportedly got into an altercation with a man who displayed a handgun, shot the victim and fled the scene, according to Officer JoAnn Taylor, a spokesperson for the Chicago Police Department. Taylor said the assailant has not been captured. Due to the ongoing nature of the investigation, officials have not revealed whether the two men attended the concert. The shooting was one of 18 in Chicago over the weekend, which resulted in five deaths and 13 injuries. According to Allhiphop. com, Drake took the stage at the venue at around 3 a.m. and performed a 45-minute set. But several fights broke out in the club, and patrons were asked to leave. The site reporte d that Drake canceied a planned afterparty due to the rash of violence in the city over the weekend. The Canadian rapper and Young Money affiliate has quickly caught fire thanks to his So Far Gone mixtape, released in February. His collaboration with Lil Wayne on "Successful" has made him one of the most buzzedabout up-and-coming MCs of the year. John legend Showcases linle Bro vaughn Anthonv It was a family affair at S O.B.'s nightclub as John Legend showed off the talents of his younger brother -and latest addition to Legend's record label -R&B singer Vaughn Anthony. In the hopes of securing a distribution deal for Anthony's upcoming debut album, Legend hosted the exclusive event for industry executives and fans To kick off the night, Legend played the supportive-big-brother role as he took to the stage at around 9 p.m. to introduce Anthony's seven-song JOHN LEGEND And VAUGHN ANTHONY showcase. Legend was met with deafening screams when he got onstage to hail the up-and-coming singer as an "incredible vocalist" and promised the crowd "a few superstar surprises.'' PinkeD-Smith: Not A Scientolouv School The New Village Academy, a private elementary school Will Smith and J ada Pinkett-Smith opened last year in Calabasas, Calif., uses L. Ron Hubbard's teaching methods -but PinkettSmith insists the school has no religious agenda. "All I can say is it is not a Scientology school," she told Ebony "That is straight evil to think that I would bring families into that educational institution and then try to get them to convert into some religion." Maybe her own children are an easier sell. Willow and Jaden Smith do not attend their parents' school, JADA PINKEIT-SMITH but continue to be homeschooled. "I didn't want my children around other privileged kids who felt entitled," PinkettSmith said. "I didn't want them to be around just cine type of person." Man Arrested In Shooting Of Rapper, At l.A. Mall LOS ANGELES --Upand-coming rapper Dolla was killed in a shooting at .an upscale shopping mall, and a man was arrested for investigation of murder, police said Tuesday.

Entertainment Tonv Yavo Drops Swine Flu, Keeps Up Beef With Rick Ross TONYYAYO Key Collaborations: The tape is hosted by universal 'hood king Mac-A-Zoe, and Lil Boosie is featured on My Cadillac." "I met Boosie at Buck's house," Yayo told us of their first encounter back in the day. "Between Boosie and Gucci, them n-as is my favorite in the South." Essential Info: OK, the obvious question: Why? "I think my flow ... everything is serious about me," Yayo said. "I feel my flow is seri ous; I feel like I'm the most underrated. Swine Flu is an epidemic. I'm about to start an epidemic ... I wanted to use what's relevant right now to get people's attention. I learned that from 50." Another thing he learned from 50 was to n eve r stop the war. Yayo says h e got Mac-AZoe from the Zoe Pound to host the underground CD via a phone call from prison. G-Unit's personal public enemy #1 shouted out the Zoe Pound on the hit Th e Magnificent," and has worked with Pound m ember Redd Eyezz in the past. "Being all the stuff that's going on with Rick Ross, I had to get Mac-A-Zoe to host the mixtape for me. Mac-A-Zoe said him and Ross used to be cool. ... I got in contact with Mac-A-Zoe through Sha Money. We're all Haitian me, Zoe, Sha Money and Whoo Kid. Sha Money called me with Mac-A-Zoe on the phone. We're kicking it on the mixtape. He's basically saying Rick Ross is an impostor. I agree with him. This guy is talking about bricks, I'm 'phony Yayo' and I sniff coke and smoke crack. All this delusional sh-. I don't know where [Ross] is getting it from. But you're the n--a that's a cop. I'm gonna make a movie. Don't push my back to the wall where you try to make it seem like I can't eat, or try to destroy my brand." Kanve West Pleads Not Guiltv In lA Airport Case KANYEWEST LOS ANGELES Kanye West has pleaded not guilty to misdemeanor charges stemming from a scuffle with a paparazzo last year. Los Angeles_ City Attorney's spokesman Nick Velasquez says West entered the plea through his attorney on Friday. The 31-year-old was not in court. City prosecutors charged the rapper with misdemeanor battery, grand theft and vandalism. West was arrested on Sept. 11 after an incident in which he was shown breaking a paparazzo's camera flash at Los Angeles International Airport. The next scheduled hear ing in the case is Jul.y 15. Review: Machines Dominate In Fourth 'Terminator' We have seen the future in T erminator Salvation," and the future is noisy. This fourth flick in the Terminator" saga takes place in 2018, 14 years after Judgment Day. John Connor is a rising force in the resistance against Skynet, the artificial intelligence network that started thinking for itself and eradicating humanity. He has seen destruction and listened to the recordings left by his mother that foretell his future, but he has yet to send anyone back in time in hopes of stopping it, including the man who will become his father. (You definitely need to have seen the first three movies to have a clue as to what's going on here. This is no time to play catch-up. Being a fan also helps.) MeG, director of the "Charlie's Angels" movies and "We Are Marshall," drops into this well-established lore and presents a post-apocalyptic world that is repeti_t"vely bleak and relentlessly loud. Yes, the machines have taken over, so of course there's going to be a healthy amount of clanging, crunching metal and automatic weapon fire but even things that shouldn't be noisy, like the lighting of a flare, sound like a rocket launch.

T.I. Though it probably spread a bit of joy among T.l.'s fans, recent reports that the rapper will only serve two months of his one year and a day prison sentence are inac curate. Sunday that T.I. -due to report to thP-Forrest City low-security federal prison in Little Rock, Arkansas, on May 26 -had been given credit for 305 days of home detention, "so his stay at Forrest City prison will like ly be only two months," the news agency may have misread the sentencing report. The story has since spread on the Internet, but accord-ing to Charysse Alexander, a spokesperson for the U .S. Attorney's Office for the Northern District Georgia, it is not accurate. According to Alexander, the rapper was indeed given credit for the 305 days of home confinement he served while awaiting trial in the case, but that has nothing to do with his prison sentence. After pleading guilty to two charges of illegally pos sessing firearms and of being a convicted felon in posses sion of a firearm in March in connection with his attempt_ : in October 2007 to buy unli, censed machine guns and silencers, T.I. (real name: Clifford Harris Jr.) was ordered to serve one year and one day in federal prison. Alexander explained that, at best, according to federal sentencing guidelines, anyone who serves more than one year in prison is eligible for a 15 per c ent "good time" credit, which in Tip's case could shave almost 55 days off his sentence. DREW-Z'S MO VlE REVIEW MICHAEL JACKSON If Michael Jackson's "This Is It" tour at London's -' 02 arena was as doomed as some reports would indicate, You'd think fewer people w<>uld want to have their names attached to the pro ject. According to reps, Usher choreographer Todd Samms is collaborating on the show, and Chris Brown choreography duo Rich and Tone Talauega were on hand during a recent casting call for dancers. A person who is involved in the planning and execution of the tour disputes this. "Todd, Rich and Tone are all great artists in their own right who have amazing talents," said the source.

"I'm in and out the office, and there's conversations," Banks told MTV News recently. "I'm just as excited as the fans are. The first Anger Management Tour, I wasn't a part of." Banks said that if Em and 50 do go out, he'll defi nitely be on the show with the rest ofG-Unit. Eminem was recently a guest on BBC's "Friday Night With Jonathan Ross," and he told the host that he hasn't solidified his touring plans yet. "As far as touring, I haven' t got that far to really figure it out yet. I haven't got that part," he said. "I'm kinda in album cycle right now and promoting. But we'll see how it goes." Eminem Gives Away Tickets For Detroit Show DETROIT -Eminem is planning a free show in Detroit on the same day the rapper's album "Relapse" is released. He announced plans for the show on his MySpace EMINEM And 50 CENT page. Fans lined up for tickets at Record Time in the Detroit suburb of Roseville. WXYZ-TV and WJBK-TV reported that fewer than 500 tickets were distributed in about 45 minutes. Eminem spokesman Dennis Dennehy confirmed the show will be at MotorCity Casino's 1,500-seat Sound Board theater. DJ Jazzy Jeff will be a special guest. Eminem Says Nick Cannon Misinterpreted Mariah Carey Dis' Is Eminem taking the high road? As odd as it seems, that's what the rapper did in answer to Nick Cannon's furious b log post responding to Em's apparent dis of Mariah Carey in a new track. Well, he's sort of taking the high road. He still is Slim Shady after all. During an interview with BBC Radio 1 host Tim Westwood on Saturday, Eminem explained the song that sparked the ire of Carey's husband. "With the song 'Bagpipes From Baghdad,' I kinda spazzed out on that record, but I guess I spazzed out on every record," Em told West wood of the Relapse track. "There's a line on there that was a little harsh. It's a harsh line ... But it's like this, the way I look at it: I had no idea he was gonna take-iL like he took it. I had no idea Nick Cannon was gonna start wildin' out on m,e,. No pun intended." Possibly in jest, Em said his lyrics -which include the lines, "Nick Cannon better back the f-up. I'm not playing, I want her back, you punk," and, "Nick Cannon, you pr-, I wis h you luck with that f--in' whore" w e r e misint erpre t ed. The rappe r downpla y e d the situation, and his l e v e l tone see m e d to b e an attempt to diffuse any t e n sion b etween hims elf and Cannon.

Frank shared his personal story of how his dream came true .but nol until he made some risky choices as a teen and almost missed out on an opportunity of a lifetime to play football. It is then when he decided he had a dream and he was going to make it happen. He encouraged the teens that they too can make their dreams come true. They .need to look in the mirror and like themselves and then surround themselves with good people, have a goal in life and do not let anyone tell them that they can"not reach it. The event was held at the Southeastern University in Lakeland, and was free and open to any teen ages 10 to 19 years of age. Teens came from all walks of life to this one of a kind event: court ordered, foster care youth, youth in residential programs, private and public schools, and all types of youth groups attended the event.
