They spoke out on the County's proposed budget slashes. Were their comments earth-shaking? For some who attended the meeting, the answer would be "No." Seated in the near-capacity crowd were County employees about to be laid off. Understandably, many of them had hoped to hear a groundswell support for their retention. It didn't happen. Instead, parents expressed their anguish over the possibility of parks and recreation facilities being shutdown or cutback for the summer. That, of course, would mean parents' little darlings would have to remain home, to drive Mom, Dad and the dog crazy during summer vacation. Such were the issues which surfaced at the Col!nty Commission Shakespeare could have told County layoff victims what they could expect when the voice of people speaks.

During the school year, those same children spent half of the day in school under some form of supervision With school out, gone is this five-day a week, all day supervision Parents, what is your child going to do for the summer? How will they replace the hours spent in schooli It is a fact that an idle child is a potential source of trouble. In their effort to entertain themselves, it is so easy to get into trouble. It is a good thing to get your children a job. On a job, they can stay busy, earn some spending change, gain some work experience and most importantly, stay out of trouble. School is a very good option. It can only help to have your child(ren) to take some classes to help them improve their educational statute. Call the school dis trict, churches and various other organizations to find out if they are offering edu cational programs that you can afford. The Boys and Girls Clubs and the city recreational programs are other good options. At these organizations, children can participate in programs that are both organized and supervised. I need not remind you that trouble is so easy to get in and so hard and inconvenient to get out of. Sometimes it can be awfully expensive, too. Parents, let us do our very best to keep our children safe and out of trouble. Breaking into people's homes, breaking into places of business, shoplifting, stealing cars, experimenting with drugs and getting into fights are the troubles of choice for' with nothing to do. "" Most parents must work during the day, 'bUt still must be concerned about their children.

She was quickly censored by the Black men in the Boston area. Washington wrote, "At that time, antislavery Black men insisted that Black women work only behind the scenes." Of course, as most of our readers already know, Black women ignored and resisted this attempt to restrict their activities. Thus, even though Stewart never spoke publicly again, she continued her work through other women's organizations (after leaving Boston). Just as women warriors fought alongside their men in many African countries, enslaved and free Black women fought along side their men for freedom here in America.

They call it tweeting. terribly boring does a person's life have to be for them to be completely obsessed with the mundane activities of another?

He said because of the reaction he was getting from other drivers because of how slowly he was traveling, he felt they couldn't sec it because of the tint on his windows "I was driving carefully because I had my newborn son in the car. That's when I realized the yellow sign wasn't working and decided to create something different." Britt came up with the concept, "Baby N Motion," and joined with Henry Mahone to market the con cept. "I never. intended to mass produce this," said Britt. "It was just something I put. on my car and my wife's car. So many people started asking about it, so I first printed up a few to give away. From there, I got more requests, and' decided to use my limited funds to Donald Britt (left) and Henry Mahone. make more." Britt said he thinks a child's travel safety is very important and their sign will definitely get attention. "This was never intended as a money venture. It developed into that on its own." Mahone said they are looking at area paternity wards at hospitals as a potential marketing point. "We're also looking at baby stores and other outlets. "''Our concept is we looked at the yellow sign being used today and we thought we could improve on it." Using the. slogan, "We care, So Should-They," Britt and Mahone said they are also infant clothing items that will have their logo printed on the front. They are also working on an outfit so the parent and child will be comfortable. "We want to create awareness for parents and nonparents," said Mahone. "We want expectant moms to be comfortable and send out the message that a baby is in the vehicle. We're both fathers and we envision this as a safety and awareness tool. We want parents to get serious about protecting their children when they are in vehicles." Reporter Leon B. Crews can be reached at (813) 248-0724, or emailed at lcrews@flsentinel.com.

Cavaliers Need Some Big Men The Cleveland Cavaliers wouldn't have to ride LeBron James' shoulders so hard if they had some big men to play in the front court. Of all the big men on the team only two are taller than 6'9". They are Zydrunas Igasuskas at 7'3" and Lorenzo Wright at 6'11". Both of these guys are in their late thirties. Ben Wall ace is 6'9" 240 lbs., and Joe Smith is 6'9"-225 lbs. and both of them are in their late thirties. Darnell Jackson, 6'9" 253 lbs., and J. J. Hickson, 6'9" 240 lbs. are young but small. Every NBA team needs some 6'11" and 7 footers on their team who are not old enough to be the coach. The Coach Is A Woman Hillsborough High School boys' basketball coach is a woman. She is from Dunedin and she used to be a fantastic basketball player. in spite of all of that, Crawford is. a basketball coach. It matters not whether the team is composed of males or females. Ms. Crawford can coach them. She is well versed in basketball, very demanding and a no-nonsense person. Hillsborough High School administrators should be congratulated for having the foresight to hire Hillsborough County's first female boys varsity basketball coach. I am sure she will do a good job.

"Every team's goal is to win a championship. We worked all season for this, not to have the best record in the NBA or to win the Eastern Conference Championship." "Don't get me wrong, having the best record is fine, but the championship is the ultimate prize." said the Cavaliers plan to start right now getting ready for next year. "I feel blessed being a part of this organization. Now, I understand how important it is to keep the team and organization together." Kinsey said as far as all the news circulating about their star, LeBron James, and their head coach, Mike Brown, he personally doesn't get involved in the politics of basketball. "I concentrate only on what I need to do to get better. You just have to show TARENCE KINSEY how much you really love the game. I know I need to get bigger and stronger and work more on my ball skills. "As far as LeBron is concerned, his work ethic is above par. He leads and sets the example for all of us. He is the measuring stick for the rest of the team on where we need to be." As far as the finals are concerned, Kinsey said before he got to the NBA, he was first a Chicago Bulls fan, then later a Los Angeles Lakers fan. "I know Orlando is virtually a hometown team, but I'll be pulling for the Lakers." From June 26 to the 27th, Kinsey will present the "Tarence Kinsey All Star Weekend," in support of the Pediatric Cancer Foundation. The event will take place at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in downtown Tampa, and will be open exclusively to party goers for the events.

As Vick sat silently in the front of the courtroom, U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Frank Santoro set a July 2 deadline for submission of a revised Chapter 11 plan. A hearing to confirm or reject the plan was set for Aug. 27. Santoro said that if the new plan fails to address the shortcomings that prompted him to reject t:!J.e first one in April, he will appoint an independent trustee to take over management ofVick's finances. "The feasibility of it the last go-round, as I ruled, left something to be MICHAEL VICK desired," Santoro said. Santoro said he had major concerns about the first plan how Vick will make enough money to pay his obligations, and how he will come up with the more than $3 million to pay his lawyers within three years. "Those are two pretty big holes," Santoro said. Vick's attorney, Paul Campsen, said the new plan will make payment of legal fees contingent upon Vick's future income. \..-hice of Our Communi tv . fi Sentinel Bulletin : : :r (813) 248-1921 Sickle Cell Association of Hillsborough County Presents "Old School Dance" Music of the "60s", "70s" & "80s" When: Saturday, June 20, 2009 Where: Tampa Letter Carrier's Hall 3003 Street Time: 9:00 PM-1 : 00 AM BYOB&FOOD Donation: $10.00 in Advance/$15.00 at the Door Door Prizes for the best "60s", "70s" & "80s" Outfits Music By: Floyd "Joy" A ll proceeds t o b e n efit Sickle Cell Progrnms Donations are Tax-deductible T icket Outlet: S ickle Cell Office 3402 N. 22"d ST-247-5999

Sports Bill Named For Former NBA Plaver Signed ALONZO MOURNING TALLAHASSEE--Gov. Charlie Crist is set to sign I a kidney transplant bill named for former Miami Heat star Alonzo Mourning. Mourning, him self a kidney transplant recipient, planned to be on hand for the signing ceremony Wednesday at a Tallahassee dialysis center. It's a return visit to the capital city for Mourning. He met with Crist and lawmakers in April to seek their support for the legislation (HB 6751.

DA Drops Charges Against Holmes SANTONIO HOLMES Pirr:TSBURGH ittsburgh prosec;utors have ropped a misdemeanor drug c arge against Steelers wide receiver and Super Bowl IVP Santonio Holmes. Allegheny County Assistant District Attorney Rachel Newman announced the decision at a court hearing Wednesday. Pittsburgh police say they found three marijuana-filled cigars -or blunts -in Holmes' car when he was pulled over on Oct. 23. They pulled Holmes over because they were looking for a car similar to the one he was driving. Holmes alerted police to the drugs. Holmes' attorney argued the traffic stop violated the football star's rights because the search warrant wasn't specific enough. Prosecutors agreed. Asked if he was happy with the outcome, Holmes said: "I'm all right.

The NBA's career scoring leader would like to see Howard not rely so much on his size and athleticism and make himself a player his team can turn to when it counts. Maybe even throw in a skyhook or two "He's still offensively kind of raw," Abdui-Jabbar said Wednesday. "He doesn't have a go-to move yet. Right now, he's kind of predictable." So far, Howard's Superman act has mostly been grounded. KAREEM ABDUL-JABBAR And DWIGHT HOWARD "Kareem is right, and he understands that in order to be a good player you have to add different things to your game," Howard said.

Tvson Marries For Third Time MIKE 1YSON And 3rd Wife, LAKIHA SPICER LAS VEGAS--Mike Tyson has married for a third time, two weeks after his 4-year-old daughter died in a tragic treadmill accident. The owner of the La Bella Wedding Chapel at the Las Vegas Hilton hotel-casino said that the former heavyweight boxing champion and his bride, Lakiha Spicer, excha'nged vows late Saturday in a short, private ceremony. Chapel owner Shawn Absher says the couple wed about 10 p m. after arriving at the hotel from the Clark County marriage bureau in a chapel-owned limousine. County marriage records in Las Vegas show the 42-year-old Tyson and 32-year-old Spicer got a marriage license about 30 minutes before their ceremony. Tyson's daughter Exodus suffocated after she either slipped or put her head in the loop of a cord hanging under a treadmill's console in her Phoenix home. Tyson's agent, Harlan Werner, said that Spicer is not Exodus' mother. Tyson and Spicer, a resident of suburban Henderson, asked for a simple ceremony with nothing special, Absher said.

Tiger Shows His Preparation Is Paving Oft DUBLIN, OH-No one is surprised when Tiger Woods wins a golf tournament. One reason he left Muirfield Village so satisfied with his second victory of the year is that Woods wasn't surprised, either. What most people will remember about his 7-under 65 in the final round of the Memorial, which allowed him to make up a four-shot deficit, is the flawless finish. In a four-way tie for the lead as he stood on the 17th tee, Woods closed with two birdies, from 9 feet to take _the lead, and a 7-iron from 183 yards to a foot that will become part of Memorial lore. Woods, however,. has a longer memory. "It wasn't just the last two holes," he said. "It was all week." He only missed five fairways at Muirfield Village, matching his most accurate tournament oft' the tee in his 13 years on tour (he also hit 49 fairways at the 1998 Masters). Woods twice hit powerful drives down the middle of the fairway on the par-5 15th on the weekend, both times leading to birdie. On the par-5 fifth Saturday, with enough breeze in his face that 3 -wood wasn't quite enough, he choked up 2 inch es on a driver and hit a baby cut, setting up another easy birdie. In the worst of the wind, he controlled the flight of his irons. "I didn't really have a problem hitting it either way," Woods said. That's when you feel .like you're in control of what you're doing." TIGER WOODS Then came the most telling comment of all. "I didn't hit any surprises out there," he said. Nothing bothers Woods more than the double miss, not knowing whether an errant shot is going left or right. That's what he took to the first tee in the final round at the Masters, and at The Players Championship. He didn't finish either of those tournaments very well, leading to speculation that his game was not where it should be. Just because he won the Memorial in his final tournament before the U.S. Open at Bethpage Black is no reason for the other 155 players to stay home in two weeks. "My practice _sessions started :getting longer at home," he said. "Hit more balls, play more golf, all these things. People don't realize you need to do that. You need to have that abili ty. You can't just think about your swing and how to be great the next day. I needed to do the reps and do some good practice sessions this past couple of weeks. It came together this week

I learned how to follow and accomplish your dream ... teen violence is getting more dangerous because more kids are now trying to join gangs because of their environment which makes people hang around gangs in the neighborhood." Kari Knowles wrote these comments about her experiences at the ence: "Saturday [May 23] we attended the Teen Listening Summit ; . which was fasdnating and informal because it allowed young people to hear from other young peo ple on topics such as school, fashions, the media and reli gion. Overall I enjoyed the time spent at the 24th National Conference on Preventing Crime in the Black Community." Ronald Nelson, a sopho more at Blake High School, was very impressed by the conference. He wrote, "I think the workshops had great guest speakers that gave me ideas and advice that can help me and my community ... I really learned a lot in the workshop about the 'Florida Youth Challenge Academy' Cambre' Williams really enjoyed this year's conference. Her observations about the event are as fol lows : "This year's Attorney General Conference was a big treat for me. We attended a poetry session which inspired me to do bigger and better things ... I learned many life tactics ... I have to hang around the right people so that I can pick up the right habits so that I can accomplish my goals."

The Jobs 4 USA/Felons pro gram in Tampa h a s been fully endorsed by the DOC, and they want ex -offenders to become self sufficient by tap ping into their own resources while at the same time, taking advantage of programs like this. "Ex felons can get a ped dler's license and other things to gain employment," said Williams. "We want to help provide thein with the resources so they can accomplish that and not return to prison. The DOC has invited us to come to all the state prisons to present our program." Williams thanks Senator Frederica Wilson with helping their cause. "I think it's awesome to see the reaction of inmates when we participate in the Re-Entry seminars. When we reveal to them how they can survive the job crisis and felony employment discrimination you can see how encouraged they get to know someone is out there working for them." Williams said she understands that some felons feel discouraged and lost with the prospect of facing rejecti o n. "We tell them they can open up a free checking account and st;ut making money Of course, paying taxes is a top priority. Taxes aren't just' a the law." Jobs 4 USA/Felons is still working with the Tampa Housing Authority and every Wednesday at 12 p. m.

Most of the time, the location of the bleeding and the need to seek med ical care are obvious. However, sometimes bleeding is not obvi ous (occult bleeding). You may have small amounts of bleeding in your digestive tract over days or weeks without noticing the bleeding When this happens, lightheadedness and fatigue may be the first noticeable symptoms that you are losing blood. Heavy menstrual bleed ing also can cause this type of lightheadedness. An uncommon cause of lightheadedness is an abnormal heart rhythm (arrhythmia), which can cause fainting spells (syncope). Unexplained faint ing spells need to be eva lu ated by a health professional. To check your heart rate, see taking a pulse Many prescription and nonprescription medicines can c_a, use lightheadedness or verti degree of lightheaded ness or vertigo that a medicine causes will vary. Vertigo Vertigo occurs when there is conflict between the signals sent to the brain by various bal anceand position-sensing systems of the body. Your brain uses input from four sensory systems to maintain your sense of balance and orientation to your surroundings. Vision gives you information about your position and motion in relationship to the rest of the world. This is an important part of the balance mechanism and often overrides information from the other balance sensing systems. Sensory nerves in your joints allow your brain to keep track of the position of your legs, arms, and torso.

Injury to or dis eases of the inn e r ear can send false sig n a l s to th e brain indicating that the balance mechanism of the inner ear (labyrinth) detects motion. If these false signals conflict with signals from the other balance and positioning centers of the body, vertigo may occur. Common causes of vertigo include: Inner ear disorders, such as benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV), Meni ere's disease, vestibular neuritis_ or labyrinthitis. Injury to the ear or head. Migraine headaches, which are painful, debilitating headaches that often occur with vertigo, nausea, vomiting, and sensitivity to light, noise, and smell. Decreased blood flow through the arteries th a t s upply blood to the base of the brain (vertebrobasilar insufficiency). Less common causes of vettigo include: A noncancerous growth in the space behind the eardrum (cholesteatoma). Brain tumors and cancer th a t has traveled from another part of the body (metastatic). Immediate m edica l attention is need ed if vertigo occurs suddenly with loss of function. Vertigo that occurs with los s of function in one area of the body can mea n a problem in the brain, such as a stroke or tran sient ischemic attack (TIA). Alcohol and many prescrip tion and nonprescription medicines can cause lightheadedn ess or vertigo. These problems m ay develop from: Taking too much of a medi cine (overmedicating). Alcohol and medicine interac tions. This is a problem, espe cially for older ad ults who may take many medicines at the same time. Misusing or abusing a medi cine or a l cohol. Drug intoxication or the effects of withdrawal. Although dizziness can occur in people of any age it is more common among older adults. A fear of dizziness can cause older adults to limit their physical and social activities. Dizziness can also lead to falls and other injuries.

Surge is water that is pushed toward the shore by the force of the winds swirling around the storm. This advancing surge combines with the normal tid es to create the hurricane storm tide, which can increase the mean water level 15 feet or more Inland Flooding In the last 30 years, inland flooding has been responsible for more than half the deaths associated with tropical cyclones in the United States High Winds Hurricane-force winds can destroy poorly constructed buildings and mobile homes. Debris such as signs roofing material, and small items left outside become flying missiles in hurricanes. Tornadoes-Hurricanes can produce tornadoes that add to the storm's destructivd power. Tornadoes are most likely to occur in the rightfront quadrant of the hurricane. Wliat Should I Do When A Watch or Warning Is Issued? When a hurricane watch i s i ss ued for yonr part of the coast this indicat es th e possibility that you could experience hurricane co nditions within 36 hours. This watch should trigger your family's disaster plan, and proactive measures should be initiated especiall y those actions that require extra time such as securing a boat leaving a barrier island, etc. When a hurricane warning is issued for your part of the coast thi s indicates that sustained winds of at least 74 mph are expected within 24 hours' Once this warning has been issued, your family should be in the process of completing proac tive actions and deciding the safest location to be during the sto rm. What Actions Should You Take To Be Prepared? Have a family disaster plan and disaster supply kit. Build or identify a SafeRoom in your Home.

The two men, who maintain their innocence, were released Thursday with no restrictions after more than eight months in jail. ev. Wright: President o ama Is 'like Mv Child' Rev.

Entertainment Murohv, Young Co-Star Make Fine Team In 'Imagine' EDDIE MURPHY And YARI SHAHIDI LOS ANGELES -In his latter-day career in family movies, Eddie Murphy has seen decidedly mixed results, but "Imagine That" is pretty much in his wheelhouse. It plays to his strengths as a performer, giving him solo bits that do not diminish the ensemble work, and pairs him with a child actor who gives as good as she gets. The result is a much more playable film than recent efforts, though Murphy will have to share the applause with young Yara Shahidi. The Paramount release opens Friday (June 12). Workaholic dads who don't spend enough time with their children are familiar figures in movies, so "Imagine That" begins with a strong sense of been there,. done that. What quickly yanks the story into a fresh realm in this screenplay by Ed Solomon and Chris Matheson are a daughter's imaginary friends. Evan Danielson (Murphy) is adroit at juggling multiple computer screens, mobile telephones and screaming clients while plowing through the average day as a financial adviser for a Denver investment firm. What he is not good at is listening to his 7-year-old daughter, Olivia (Shahidi). That is, until one day, when Olivia gives him outstanding -even highly prophetic advice on several stocks. Actually, the advice doesn't come from Olivia. It comes from her imaginary friends -a queen and two princesses that live in a magical kingdom with a dragon. She reaches them by means of a security blanket she calls Goo-Gaa. As the prognostications from Goo-Gaa prove more reliable than those from Warren Buffett, Evan finds himself learning the mysteries of the security blanket, performing childish dances and songs to placate the dragon, you understand -and becoming a real pal to his delighted daughter. Of course, this sudden interest in Olivia has a mercantile motive that Evan must shed if he will truly learn a life lesson about spending quality time with his offspring. Rest assured, he will. Rapper Drake To Sue over Unauthorized Album DRAKE NEW YORK-Toronto rapper Drake is such a hot artist that one of his albums is selling even though he didn't release it. An unauthorized album, "The Girls Love Drake," which features selections from Drake's mixtape "So Far Gone" and other tracks, was released May 28 by a label called Canadian Money Entertainment and distributed by the Independent Online Distribution Alliance (IODA) on iTunes, Rhapsody and Amazon. Drake's camp, which is still trying to clear permissions for the samples on "So Far Gone" and his two other mixtapes in hopes of selling them in stores, said it didn't authorize the release. If it fieaon tile that' it W.asn't .an,.official. album, Love' would have debuted this week at No. 101 on the Billboard 200, No. 16 on the Digital Albums chart and No 1 on the Heatseekers tally. After finding the album on iTunes, Drake's management sent a cease-anddesist notice to the retailer, which has since removed it. Drake's manager, AI Branch, said he was having it removed from Rhapsody and Amazon as well. "This i s a straight bootleg a scandal," Branch told Billboard com. "iTunes' position is that they are a store and they stock everything. They have a waiver, and as long as people sign it and are responsible for the product they submit, then they go for it." T -Pain Paid Tribute To Late Rapper Dolla DOLIA T-Pain paid homage to Dolla the slain rapper by having a mural of him painted on the hood of his vintage car. "Showin my respects for my dog R.I.P. on the 72 Chevy Chevelle," Pain posted on Twitter. Pain said that he and Dolla -a former labelmate on Jive Records and collaborator on the song "Who the F--Is That?" -had become great buddies. "Man," Pain said "It happens every day. It don't take nothing but time before it happens to someone you know. We had problems when I first got signed. [But] then we worked it out, and after that we was the best of friends .... It kind of sucks. And we just got our friendship straightened out, then all of this had to happen." J:J c Kelis, Divorcing From Nas, Tweets About lnfidelitv c.. c z m ....

On Tuesday, Nas told fans he was listening to Maxwell's new album and sipping high-end liquor and smoking cigars. The Tweet was accompanied by a photo of Nas and the singer partying with an unidentified group of buxom females. The message and image made their way around the Internet over the past two days, eliciting an array of comments. On Wednesday, Kelis took to Twitter herself and released a series of biting messages about infidelity. Nas wasn't called out by name, but he and Kelis are in the midst of divorcing; Kelis is also eight months' pregnant with the couple's first child. "This lovely day I would like to touch on cheaters.
