Letter To The Editor NAACP Responds To Elecuons Saga Nationally, "the NAACP in 2008 launched the Voter -Empowerment program (VEP'08), a nonpartisan campaign designed to empower African American and people of color by increasing awareness and participation in the electoral process." From this initiative, the goal was to increase African American voter turnout by 5% more than the 2004 turnout. At this time, the Hillsborough County Branch of NAACP is not fully aware of the accomplishments of the 2008 election in Hillsborough County, but is cognizant of the ongoing investigation into the last election under the leadership of Buddy Johnson, outgoing Supervisor of Elections. As we endeavor to fulfill the entire mission of the NAACP.and to implement its programs to the fullest, we are quite concerned about voter education in our county. It is of utmost importance that all citizens are educated and informed about all aspects of elections including names of candidates, and issues to b e determined by the voters. In our quest to see. if we are on target with national goals set by the NAACP Voter Empowerment. Program, we are seeking the following information: An accurate accounting of the. funds spent for Voter. Education in Hillsborough County in 2008. Whether there was an equitable distribution of funds in neighborhoods throughout the county to increase the voter participation among ethnic groups in the county. What percentage of funding was spent in ethnic, communities throughout Tampa Bay? Exactly what percentage increase was realized from the 2008 campaign when analyzing the results of the 2004 campaign? The Branch understaDds. that the FBI is in the process'of a thorough investigation of the 2008 Election, and. we are -awaiting the findings of this matter. We shall appreciate a report of your findings, in writing, in 90 days so we as a Branch can decipher if there are any corrective measures we must take to ensure that the goals of the 2012 election will be realiZed fully as slated by the national movement. Your immediate reply that you have received our request would be greatly appreciated.

Because you are going to war to fight this battle, you must be clear on a few things before going Before you engage in a fight, one must be assured of their strength. You must have an idea of how you are going to withstand the outside forces that will come against you. Paul encourages them "to be strong in the Lord, and in the power of His might" (vs. 10). As the people of God, we must all know that our strength to fight this good comes from God. The strength you need to make it through life's daily chal lenges will come from God. Not only will your strength come from Him, but He is also the source of your power.

Your power is insufficient to win this battle alone. You being victo rious rests in the power of God. He has the power to open doors no man can close He has the power to change man's mind. There are no limits to the power of God. When you go out to battle and war, being properly dressed is vitally necessary. Not wearing proper gear can prove to be detrimental to your health. The gear that you need to fight the battle is not man made or material. Paul says, "Put on the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil" (vs. 11). You know there is a devil out there who is trying to destroy you and kill you. He will try his best to kill you using every weapon at his disposal, he will do it close up and from a distance.

The armor that God provides has the capabilities of protecting from all dangers and help you overcome any thing that should befall you. God's armor has been tested and tried and it works What makes God's armor work for believer is that it must be worn and used. Many people are losing the battle because they are not wearing the armor God is providing and has instructed us to use. You cannot go out half dressed or pick and choose what you will wear and not wear. He tells you what to put on because he knows what enemies you have to wrestle with. The enemies you are warring against are enemies of great experience and power. They fight a different type of battle that cannot be over come by material things. That is why your strength and your power are not sufficient enough to win this battle.

Sater Fun In The Summer Sun Any diagnosis of cancer can be frightening-including skin cancer, the most commonly diagnosed cancer in the United States. Howe ve r skin cancer accounts for less than 1 percent of all cancer deaths; 85% to 95% of all cases are cured.\ Skin cancer is strongly associated with expo sure to ultraviolet (UV) radia tion, part of the energy that comes from the sun (it also can come from artifici a l sources like sun lamps and tanning booths) There are three different types of skin cancer melanoma b asa l cell carci noma and sq uamous cell carcinoma. It is particularly important to diagnose and treat melanoma early. Melanoma is the deadliest f orm of skin cancer, with 55 ,100 new cases and 7,910 deaths expected this year in the U.S. a lone. Melanoma usuall y b eg ins as a mole. Twenty years ago, dermatologists noted that the typi cal warning sign s of early melanom a follow an easy-to rememb er formula: Asymmetrythe mole is not a c ircle, but lop s id ed Borders-the mole has un even or ragged edges Color-the mole is not a uni form brown, but a mix of brown, black, red blue, a nd white Diameter-the mole is wider than a pencil eraser The d erma tologi s ts who de vised that list now suggest adding "E," for "Evolving." Your overall chance of devel oping a skin cancer is related to y ou r lifet ime expo sure to UV radiation. While most skin canc ers appea r after age 50, the sun's damaging effects begin a t an ea rl y age It's im portant to start sun protection in childhood to pre vent skin cancer later in life. Che ck yourse lf regularly for new grovvths or other changes in your skin, an d report any unu s u a l growths to a doctor.

PhobiasTwo m ajor types of phobias are socia l phobia and specific phobia People with social phobia have an overwhelming and dis ab ling fear of scrutiny, embarrass ment, or humili a tion in social situations, which l eads to av oidanc e of m any potentially pleas urabl e and mea,ningful activ iti es.

My name is Marsha, I'm 47 years old been living in Tampa Park tor 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 hi 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 arid admitted mys ,elf to a DACCO program. I just know I'll have to get myself together for my kids. Do You Want To Share Your Story? Do You Want More Information?

"I Part I Recent hurricanes, flood ing, tornadoes, and the trag ic events of September 11th have emphasized the need for everyone families, busi nesses, agencies and institutions -to be prepared. As a result of this, residents are urged to take the necessary precautions to prepare early in the event of a storm. Things To Do Now Make ;sour Family Disaster Plan. Refer to the Hurricane Evacuation to locate your residence and determine if you are in an evacuation zone. If you need to determine where you live, obtain a 2008 Hurricane Guide; or online at www.tampabayprepares.org Decide NOW where you will go if you need to evacuate. REMEMBER if you're leaving the area, or plan to go to a hotel, do not delay. Determine your route, leave early, and travel the shortest distance possible. Create or Update your Disaster Supply Kit. Make plans and purchase items needed, such as storm shelters, to protect your home. Keep your home in good repair. Tacking down loose roofing, trimming trees, and keeping gutters clean are good starting points. Purchase a battery-powered weather alert radio and a non-electric land line telephone. Cordless telephones will not work if there is a power outage. Take inventory of your property and possessions on paper. You may also video your property. Keep the inventory list with insurance and other important papers in a safe place and send a copy to a relative or friend out of the area. Make sure your street address number is clearly marked on your home. If you are a homeowner, review your policy early. If you are a renter, you may consider purchasing renter's msurance. Create a safe room in your home. Do not stay in a room if the windows or glass doors are not protected. The room should be an interior room, such as a bathroom, closet, or hallway that will help buffer you from the storm's winds. Be sure to take your disaster supply kit to the safe room when a storm threatens.' In The Path Of A Storm If a hurricane is predicted for your area, pay close attention to the weather updates. Hurricanes can be unpredictable. Maintain at least a two-week supply of prescription medicine throughout the hurricane season. Remove items such as lawn furniture, potted plants, bicycles, trash cans, etc., from your yard. During high winds, these items can become dangerous missiles. Protect windows and glass doors with plywood or storm shutters. If there is a chance your home could be flooded, remove electronic items, antiques, and furniture from the floor. Fill your vehicle with gasoline and obtain cash. Gas pumps or ATMS will work during power outages. After The Storm In the event of a storm, power outages are likely to be widespread. If you do not evacuate, you should have supplies to last for at least 7 days. The power will be restored Our commitment to customers through hurricane season Tampa Electric's comprehensive, year-round storm plan forms a cornerstone of our commitment to our customers. Companywide response drills, enhancements to customer service, proactive tree trimming and upgrades to our equipment are all part of our hurricane season preparation. To report a power outage or a public safety concern such as a downed power line, customers may call our toll-free, automated system at 1-877-588-1010. To fully use this system, update your primary phone number at tampaelectric.com. The system can recognize your phone number or Tampa Electric account number and match it to your address when you call, helping us locate outages quickly. With our Mutual Assistance Routing System, customer service representatives from other utilities will answer your calls in the event our call center must evacuate. After Severe Weather, We're Ready Should severe weather result in the temporary loss of electricity, our plan helps us restore power as safely and quickly as possible. When conditions are safe for our crews to work, our restoration effort begins with facilities critical to public health and safety. This is followed by work prioritized to restore power to the most customers in the least amount of time. In the event we are faced with a widespread outage and require additional help, Tampa Electric's membership in the Southeastern Electric Exchange provides support from other utilities. In turn, we will send crews to help restore power for other communities in need. To help ensure power supply, we have installed peaking units with "black start" capability which can start larger generating units should power from the system not be readily available. Putting Safety First As we make safety our top priority, we ask that you do the same. This means planning for severe weather as soon as possible. In addition, before and during hurricane season, we advise our customers to have a personal storm plan in place and follow these electrical safety guidelines: Stay away from downed power lines. assume that a downed power line is energized, and move away to safety. ------ Stay out of floodwaters. Roodwaters can hide energized power lines or other hazards, or put you at risk of drowning. Visit tampaelectric.comlweatherwatch for severe weather preparation guidelines. Our priorities are safety and service. TAMPA ELECTRIC RUNS ON ENERGY-by priority. Police, Fire, 9-1-1 centers, and shelters will be restored first. Use perishable food items from the refrigerator first, then use foods from the freezer. Avoid opening the refrigerator as much as possible. (You may post a list of the contents on the outside). If the freezer is well filled and well insulated, food will still have ice crystals in the center (meaning the food is safe to eat), for at least three days. NOTE: Do not refreeze food after the power is restored. Non-perishable foods and staples should be used last. Charcoal grills, gas grills, or camping stoves can be used (outside only) to cook during an emergency. If you heat canned goods in the can make sure to open the can and remove the paper label before heating. You can also heat food with candle warmers, chafing dishes, and fondue pots. Warning Public shelter spaces are limited, so shelters may fill up quickly during an evacuation. In addition, shelters provide a basic living environment. Those who need to evacuate should make every effort to find a protected location other than public shelters. All mobile home residents must evacuate, regardless of where they live. Options may include homes of friends or relatives who do not have to evacuate, hotels/motels in safe areas or leaving the county (travel only as far as you must). Under a major storm scenario, it may become necessary to open refuges to accommodate evacuees. Thesefacilities have not been fully certified as public shelters and will not have the extent of services avail-. able at the public shelters listed on this page. All residents looking for refuge from a storm should tune in to local television and radio stations for updated information. Announcements will be broadcast confirming shelter openings and refuges if neces------. --sary. Special Needs Shelters Hillsborough County provides a shelter program for those residents requiring special medically related care. Special needs shelters will be available for persons requiring more skilled med ical care than available in a public shelter, but not requiring an acute care facility such as a hospital. If this type of extended care is needed, contact the Hillsborough -Info Line at 813-272-5900 to be considered for registration into this program.

Salvation bowed in second, taking in $53.8 mil lion over the same four-day period, and falling short of expectations.

Among spoof comedies, Dance Flick ($10. 7 million Friday-Sunday, $13.1 million Friday-Monday) fell somewhere between Date Movie ($19.1 million threeday debut in 2006) and Superhero Movie ($9.5 mil lion in 2008), and nowhere near the Wayans family's original Scary Movie ($42.3 million in 2000). Kellv Rowland Finds 'love' On Dance Floor NEW YORK --Singer Kelly Rowland was in France last summer when she discovered DJ David Guetta, at one of his exhilarating techno shows in Cannes. When she later met up with Guetta and asked him to play a new track for her, the French DJ unveiled a pop number built around a lush piano loop and throbbing percussion. The track, which would become the groundwork for "When Love Takes Over," moved Rowland to tears. "I felt so much emotion from the track; something happened the first time I heard it, and it was just beautiful," Rowland says. The former Destiny's Child member took the track to London to write and record the song's vocals. The finished product was unveiled at a show-stop-KELLY ROWLAND ping joint performance in March at Miami's Ultra Music Festival. Last month, "When Love Takes Over" was officially released as the first single from Guetta's upcoming album, "One Love," and bulleted at No. 2 on the Hot Dance Airplay chart. Guetta and Row land will perform the song at various points on Guetta's continent-crossing DJ tour during the summer. Mike.

We ask you now to please respect our need at this .. -MIKE TYSON very difficult time for privacy to grieve and try to help each other heal." Hill said Monday that the police investigation of the scene indicated a "tragic accideitt." "Somehow she _was playing on this treadmill, and there's a eord that hangs under the console -it's kind of a loop," Hill said. "Either she slipped or put her head in the loop, but it acted like a noose, and she was obviously unable to get herself off of it."

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Today is a 7 -You're about to have an amazing idea, or discov er a brand new option. This has to do with money you share with other people.

Let's start first by uninstalling all the trial software you don't need anymore such as the Norton System Suite that came with your computer when you first purchased it Let's also uniristall the Microsoft Office 60-day trial version, AOL and the other free internet trials. You will need to sign on as a. local administrator and enter the control panel. It's nice to have the recycle bin on the desktop but let's right click on it (lnd give the bin a more interesting name for example toilet bowl, trash can. You can also uncheck the displc;lydelete confirmation in the properties of the bin, which tends to be annoying. Another way to rid your desktop of clutter is to right click again, but this time on an empty area of the desktop and se lect auto arrange. You should also only install programs you absolutely need. There is no need to have short cuts for your digital camera software or old games you hardly play any-more. :>\::::-::: :. Remer:riber also just because you delete a short cut doesn't mean the pro.gram itself is deleted too. Run the disk clean up tool atleast once a week to safely delete temporary files, logs, ertor reporting files that may bog down your computer. .Be smart about your program listing. You don't need to install two programs that perform the same essential duties. In stalling two antivirus programs on your computer is asking for trouble.
