In the history music, no one has withstood 45 years in the industry and still draw millions to concerts, both locally and abroad. Last Thursday at the age of 50, Michael Jackson died from cardiac arrest. Tampa entertainer, Jet Set Hudson who is in Los Angesaid when he first got the news he didn t believe it Like many others, I got in my car and drove over to his N house. When I got there, people W were lined up for more than a 9 mile. That's wh e n it sunk in ;:-... that he was gone ." "People were laying wreaths and flowers in front of his ,QOJ.Il<:, go away after that. Jet Set said people in Cali fornia are still going crazy with di.Sbe1feC "" "I still can t believe he is gone He inspired me to be what I am today. Every time I think about it, I start crying I plan on paying a special tribute t o him in my own way ." Other local producers and entertainers had this to say about the pop icon s death. Fashion Coordinator, Pat McClendon: A lot of peopl e are hurt by this. Even in my business a s a fashion modera t or, I can see it. He was only 50. That's really tragic. When I got the news I couldn 't' believe it and I still don't A lot of people were looking forward to his upcoming tour, and I believe he was making one of his big comebacks. One of my artist choreographed his routine based on Michael Jackson." McClendon said a iot of the stuff hearing i's disturbing and she wants to know what re all y happened. JMB Entertainment foun der, Jerry Means: "He was the epitome of excitement. He left us all with great memories, and I hope what he did becomes an e x ample for today' s artists. He really show e d what the entertainment business is all about. His desire to be perfect set him apart from all others. There were a lot of things he contributed to the world outsi de of entertainment. He left a huge legacy. Local DJ, Heavy: This was very tragic for the music industry. Other countries gave him more than we did here. I think he left shoes that won't be filled for a long time. He performed for 45 years and was great at it. His legacy will live forever. This is bigger than Elvis." King Cobra Enterprises founder, Corey Felton: This is a big blow to the industry. Death doesn't discriminate. Whim you talk about his career, it never died. He was preparing to tour. And I think he was go i ng to shock us all. He was an icon in spite of his personal problems I think h e was loved all over the world. He took a lot of negative press here, but even with all that, it didn' t overshadow him as a great artist." Just as the career of the Jackson Five began to soar in 1969, a local Jackson family .appeared, .in, talent shows, and became known as Tampa' s Jackson Five ,Pne of the that group, Willie L. Jackson, Jr., recalls the impact Michael had on everyone during that time "For my family, we felt a real connection with the Jackson Five. There were more than five of us, but we performed as the Jackson Five from Tampa, and we tried our best to .emulate what the real Jackson Five were doing. "Michael and his brothers were our idols growing up, and his death is very hard to take. We just need to stay close to God and remember the good times Michael left us.

TheDavThe World Stopped W all Street shut down, the day he died. Who was it? Was it John F. Kennedy? No. Was it Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Frank Sinatra or Elvis Presley? No, no and no! Do we need to tell you? We know you know. It was Michael JackSon. And such a phenomenon as the total shut down of Wall Street for one human being had never happened before, in the history of world economics. It took one week to play Michael Jackson's major hits. And the D. J.'s still missed many of them. Michael Jackson was the Mississippi River to a land of parched Pop-music. Regardless of obstacles or flood, his mighty genius rolled on, like a great muddy sea coursing through the throat of America. In spite of personal misfortunes, despite financial upheavals, regardless of wagging tongues and persecuting eyes, his light outshone even the torch of the Statue of Liberty. As a matter of fact,' at the zenith of hiS, life, Michael Jackson was indeed, the Statue of Liberty for tens of millions of people around the world. He may be dead, in the physical sense. But how could he die in the Neverland of Iran, Iraq, North Korea, all the demagogues and pettygods of melodramatic media, would you, could you please for just one minute? A redwood has fallen in the forest. How in God's name could you not have heard the'concussion? No nuclear deVice, no God-crazed terrorist set oil blowing up his own people, no selfappointed maniac will ever leave the positive imprint that Michael Jackson has left! We know you know and feel as we do. There must be in this world, another Michael Jackson! Berry Gordy, can you find him? President Obama, can you pass a law that may use stem cells to resurrect him ... clone him? the answer is "No!" Michael Jackson is gone, only to be seen on video. The worid stands still and weeps! I Remember Michael T his past weekend the a irwaves were filled with memories of a music icon who became a legend in his own time. Michael Jackson, formerly of the Jackson Five, and: The Jacksons, died o n Thursday, June 25, 2009 . He was two months and 4 days awa y from his 51st birthday. The news reports state that he died from cardiac arrest, which is mind-blowing for one who placed such a high value on his health. According to sources, Jackson was a vegetarian and exercised daily. He was preparing for what he called his final tour at the time of his death. Jackson's music had the uncanny ability to unite all cultures and age groups across the globe. He was loved throughout the world. He truly earned the title of the "King of Pop, and lived up to the legend. It seems that it was just a few years ago that I was in the store purchasing every record the Jackson Five made. I remember taking the pages of magazines tying a string in the top of the page and suspending it from the ceiling in my room with thumbtacks. It was a magical time, a t ime when every teenage girl dreamed of meeting the Jackson Five. As I grew up, I began to like other artists but Michael and his broth ers still held a special place in my heart. We all grew up in our separate worlds with only the music to link us. Through the years, Jackson separated from his b rothers and went out on his own He became a superstar and grew into a much loved performer and humanitar ian His support of charities earned him a place in the Guinness Book of Records for the "Most Charities Supported By A Pop Star." He will be remembered forever because his music touched generations. His stage presence was pure Michael and unrivaled b y any other Many of us feel a special kin to Michael because we grew up with him and his brothers. We also feel a special loss with his death. It is as if we lost a family member. So, it is with sadness that we bid farewell to Michael, good bye to a true legend. Eves On North Korea And -Iran T he United States to keep an eye on both Iran and North Korea. Both of those countries could lure the United States into a war that America does not need or cannot afford. Iran and North Korea know that America is in a dilemma over a fight with those two countries. That Is why they are talking and acting tough. Let us not forget we are cur rently fighting a war i,n Iraq and one in Afghanistan. Believe me, Iran and North Korea are well aware of this . They know that this country's economy is in terrible shape we gon t have the money ( o e ngage North Korea or Iran i n a war. It is going to be most impor tant that the U.S. gets NATO involved in bringing these two countries back down to earth. It is very important that nations like Russia, China, Israel, Turkey, England, Germany and Japan be involved There are two _reasons why this is important. The combined forced of all of these countries may be able to bring and North Korea to the peace table and persuade them to change their philosophies and their activities. The second reason is we need those other nations, aid to help the u s to man and finance a war, should a war become neces sary. Whil e it is vital that we keep an eye on Iran and North Korea, we must show no fear of either, but at the same time, we need to walk a line that will not get us in a war with these two countries. Should we get into a solo war with these two countries it will give the Taliban terrorists renewed vigor. I do1,1' t mean to sound unpa t r iotic, but America already has too much invested in what many believe are senseless wars. It is taking too many necessary dollars f r om our financially depressed economy. More importantly, we have lost too many Americans in these two wars to send more of our men and women to the horrors of another war Our soldiers are overwhelmed with multiple tours of duty, serving in both Iraq and Afghanistan.

During its breakfast to honor distin guished alumni, alumnus Ronnie Brown in town from Baton Rouge, LA, wondered, "what is being done to make sure the school turns around within a year. ffi For Mid-July :::::1 .... BY GWENDOLYN HAYES Sentinel Editor Alumni of Middleton High School from around the coun try were in town over the week e nd to celebrate the school's 75th anniversary While in town for a fun-filled weekend, alumni learned that the school has one year to straighten up or stand to be closed. School grades after FCAT exams were released and Mid dleton was on the bottom of the high schools, earning a 'D.' Because the school has been stuck on 'D' for the past few years, there is speculation that it will be closed. Questions about the school's outcome continued later Satur day evening when more than 250 persons attended the ban quet. "I gave them the school board's main switchboard number and asked them to call the superintendent, school board members and other ad ministrators and ask them 'what is the plan to turn Mid--For All Your Seafood Delights, Call In Your Order To Avoid The Wait!

Hearns has been complaining about the school's grade and curriculum for the past 2 years That's why he encouraged oth ers to make known their com plaints, too. Calvin Simmons, President of the Middleton Alumni Asso ciation, talked with School Board Member Doretha Edgecomb on Sunday during the All-Class Reunion Picnic. "She told me she had talked with the superintendent about doing a community meeting and I told her I'd wait on that," he said. Mrs. Edgecomb has indeed talked with Superintendent MaryEllen Elia about a com munity meeting in mid-July. A time and place will be an nounced later. "I want the community to have an oppor tunity to ask questions about what has been done, what is being done and what will be done to make sure Middleton does not remain on the Inter vention List. I'd also like for her to dispel any rumors that are out there and share the plans in place to submit to the state," she said Mrs. Edgecomb added that she is soliciting ideas and part nership with the community. "The point I don't want lost is that Middleton has made tremendous progress," she said. "There has been lots of improvements and an increase of more than 10 points." In spite of the rumors about closing the school, Supt. Elia said there are no plans to close the school. "We have no intention of closing Middleton. While most high schools around the state lost ground this year, Middle ton showed improvement. It wasn't enough improvement, but it's a sign that the school is headed in the right direction. There was significant improve ment among students in the lower quartile. "Middleton remains on the "intervene" list, so we will con tinue to implement the "turn around" plan approved by the state. We will review all the data now available to us and make decisions about how to move Middleton forward. "I offer my support to the principal, staff, and students at Middleton and applaud their hard work," she concluded. Blake High Class Of 1966 The next class meeting will be held on Wednesday, July 1, 2009, 6A5 p.m. at the Wig Bou tique, 2452 Brandon Blvd. For more information, contact Daddybo at (813) 453-6887. Charge Dropped In Suit Against Commissioner COMMISSIONER KEVIN WHITE ... Sexual Harassment Lawsuit Rages On The allegation that a young woman was terminated after she rebuffed the sexual ad vances of her boss was recently dropped in the lawsuit. How ever, other portions of the law suit remain active. The case involving Hillsbor ough County Commissioner Kevin White and his former aide came to life in November 2007, after Ms. Allyssa Ogden accused White of making sexual advances toward her. White has denied the ac cusations. Ms. Ogden stated in the lawsuit that the unwanted atten tion began within days after she was hired. She further alleged in the lawsuit that she accom panied White to Atlanta, GA, in September 2007. During the trip she alleges that White took her to dinner and later asked to share her hotel room. Shortly after the trip, White terminated Ms. Ogden's em ployment. County Attorney Renee Lee initially represented White, because he is a county employee. However, because of a conflict of interest Attorney Claire Saady was hired to represent Hillsborough County in the case. Ms. Ogden, 24, worked for White, 44, for ap proximately 7 months. Attorney Steven Wenzel represents White. White, a first term County Commissioner representing District 3, and only Democrat on the 7-member board, has filed for the upcoming election in August 2010. If re-elected, he will serve for two years. He is being challenged for the seat by former State Senator Les Miller, Jr. Woman Gets 25 Years In Prison For Fatal Accident DENISE BATTLES ..... sentenced to 25 years for fatal accident.

Normally in such cases, care of the children would be taken over by the surviving parent or a close relative. But as with many other aspects of Jackson's life, his family situation was complex, unusual and far from normal Born to two mothers -Jackson's ex-wife Debbie Rowe and an upidentified woman who reportedly served as a surrogate -the children lived and traveled the world with Jackson, their faces often covered by veils and masks when appearing in public. Rowe gave up her parental rights to her two kids with the singer, but later battled to have them restored. She may be considered to take over custody for Prince Michael I and Paris, said CNN senior legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin, who has followed Jackson's legal woes for y ears. Perhaps the biggest and saddest question is what wili happen to the late singer's two sons and his , Prince Michael I, u-year-old Paris and 7-year-old Prince Michael II. "Certainly any court that is looking tvat sort of ques- tion will say, if the father dies who is the mother and would we consider giving the children to the mother?" Toobin said. "As I understand it, in.later years after a substantial amount of time when Debbie Rowe didn' t see those children at all, she started to have a relationship with them again. So she'd certainly be an obvious candidate for custody of those two children." The question of custody for -1 the third child would be even ffi more up in the air since his en mother was likely never involved in his life, Toobin added. > z The three kids are staying o with their paternal grand-'TI mother, Katherine :!!
