HOLTON Sentinel City Editor Families throughout the nation will celebrate the 4th of July. Some said the economy has affected the way they will celebrate the holiday while others plan to continue in their customary manner. Some Sentinel readers shared their thoughts on the effects of the economy on the holiday this year. Ms.Pat Spencer said, "My plans are to stay in Tampa for the holiday. Normally, I would be visiting with family and friends, but with this year:'s economy, I will be trying to save and cut expenses every where I can. I'm also trying to get my budget together to attend the NAACP 100th Anniversary Convention later in July in New York." Tom Forward said, "The Forward fam ily will be planning to enjoy the company of family members and close friends living within the Tampa Bay area. We plan on barbequing in the backyard, enjoying some fresh sea food from Oriental Fish Market, some ice cold watermelon from Marianna, (from my father's watermelon patch), and just enjoying the celebration of independence and freedom of this great nation," Tom Forward said. Ms. Carolyn Ld"'-..... Y "The economic downturn began affecting my family last year, so for most holiday's if it isn't FREE, we don't usually do it! ''There are many opportunities to celebrate Independence Day if you are so inclined.

Frederick Douglass OnJulv4th S ome would say we should talk about something else. "Things have changed," they would say. "So, with a Black man in the White House, why should we want to listen to another Black man, in another century -two centuries, to be exact -talk about freedoms we didn't have, then, but have, now? Our answer is elementary. "The struggle is not over!" So, with that in mind, we proudly reprint comments made by Frederick Douglass, before a group of Northern abolitionists, in Corinthian Hall, Rochester, New York, on July 5, 1852. Said Douglass, "For the present, it is enough to affirm the equal manhood of the Negro race. Is it not astonishing that,-while we are plowing, planting and reaping, using all kinds of mechanical tools, erecting houses, constructing bridges, building ships, working in metals of brass, iron, copper, silver and gold; that, while we are reading, writing and ciphering, acting as clerks, merchants and secretaries, having among us lawyers, doctors, ministers, poets, authors, editors, orators and teachers; that, while we are engaged in all manner of enterprises common to other men, digging gold in California, capturing the whale in the Pacific, feeding sheep and cattle on the hill-side, living, moving, acting, thinking, planning, living in families as husbands, wives and children, and, above all, confessing and worshipping the ChriStian's God, and looking hopefully for life and immortality beyond the grave, we are called upon to prove that we are human?!" Slighdy more than a century and a half ago, Frederick Douglass spoke those words to an America who had not yet made up its mind if it should mobilize to set Black faces free. Now, things have changed. But how real is the change? Enjoy your Fourth of July! But remember: The strug-gle isn't over! Driving, Teding And. SIUPidiiV "H ave you ever seen it? No doubt; you've Wibiessed it I or wondered, as many of us have wondered, how anyone with common sense or love of life would do such an addle-brained, stupid thing. We're talki .. g abounexting while driving. Statistics tell the story. More motorists have died or been injured by other motorists who were either in the act of texting or simply carrying on oblivious conversations on their cell-phones than all the bomb blast victims on the streets of Iraq. According to one estimate, cell-phone use is the reason for 636,000 crashes, 330,000 injuries, 12,000 serious injuries and 2,6oo deaths each year. Moreover, studies reveal drivers who use cell-phones to talk and text are four times more likely to be invol-vec in personal injury crashes than are other drivers. But many of us do not need statistics to remind us of the lethality of texting motorists. We need only to recall < recent near-collisions we have had, not far from our homes, while on our way to the grocery store or while W ferrying our children to the park. Death drove by, with its thumbs on a BlackBerry. We suggest, therefore, along with ticketing for driving The Frozen Cup ladv W bile driving through an East Tampa neighborhood, I noticed a group of about seven youngsters sort of hanging out on the corner. The oldest couldn't have been more than 9 and the youngest, still wearing his fuzzy slippers, looked to be about2 As I continued on my way, my thoughts turned to my own childhood and summer time. We didn't want to stay inside and hated it when it rained. We used to play Four Square, Dodge Ball, and other games. We ate oranges, tangerines, Japanese plums, mangos, and raspberry right off the tree. After lunch we went back into the yard and played some more. One of the high lights of the day was waiting for the ice cream man. It seemed like we could hear his music even when he was blocks away. We always tried to be good because if we weren't, watch ing the ice cream man drive by was the punishment. We very seldom got caught being bad. The afternoons were nor mally filled with games such hopscotch, the Devil and the Pitch Fork, and Red Rover When it was just too hot, my mom would make us stay on the porch or in the shade of the big oak tree in our front yard. Those were the times we played marbles under the tree. Back in those days, the only thing that matter was if you could shoot marbles. Today, it seems that the summers of my childhood were magical. And, it seemed that the summer lasted a long, long time. Those chil dren brought those memories back. I went on about my way and upon my return trip, I saw the youngsters again. Apparently they had been on their way to the Frozen Cup Lady's house because each child was munching on a frozen cup. This must be something that comes along with child hood, because growing up, it didn't matter how many snacks we had nothing took the place of a frozen cup. My mom used to make them for us with the fruit cocktail and all, but it just wasn't the same. We had to give that dime (for the small) or quar ter to the Frozen Cup Lady or the world would just come to an end on the spot! Frozen cups cost more, but kids still love them just the same. I guess there are some things about childhood that remain the same. Who was Dred Sconil P every practic ing attorney is taught about the infamous "Dred Scott Decision," an 1857 United States Supreme Court ruling that "declared that all Blacks slaves as well as free were not and could never become citizens of the United States." During my high school years, we were also taught about the Dred Scott ruling as part of our American History class. I always felt more emphasis was placed on. the ruling than on Dred Scott the man. Consequently, I always wanted to know more about Dred Scott. So, today, I will share with you some of the interesting facts I learned about Dred Scott's life. First of all, Scott's original name was Sam Scott. Indeed, Sam chose to use the name of an older brother, Dred, who died at a young age. Scott was born in 1799, in Southampton County, Virginia. His owner, Peter Blow, moved to Alabama and finally relocated to St. Louis, Missouri, taking his slaves along with him. After relocating to Mis souri, Blow died, and Scott was sold to a United States Army doctor, John Emerson. Scott traveled with _Emerson through out Illinois and .Wisconsin ter ritories where the Northeast Ordinance prohibited slavery. While Scott and Emer-son lived in WisconSin, Scott met Harriet Robinson who was also a slave, at the time. Ownel'6hip of Harriett was transferred to Emerson, after she and Scott married. The Scotts continued to live in Wisconsin while their master Emerson, was transferred first to St. Louis, and then to Louisiana. After Emerson died, his wife, Irene Sandford Emerson, moved to St. Louis and hired Scott out to an army captain. Scott ran away and hid in the swamps outside St. Louis. Returning years later, Scott attempted to buy his family's freedom from Irene Emerson for $300, an offer she refused By this time, the Scotts had two da\ig'hters, Eliza and Lizzie, agesand severi reSpectively. Scott used the $300 to file a lawsuit to obtain his family's freedom, in 1846. He lost the first suit in 1847, but late.r' won his freedom in a trial by jury iii 1850. Two years later, the jury's decision was reversed by the Missouri Supreme Court, and an appeal to the United States I Continued On Next Page I without seat belts, even more so, police officers, deputy sheriffs and state troopers should detain motorists who drive while texting. Yes, driving drunk is despicable. Driving without a seatbelt is reprehensible. But driving with one's eyes glued to a cellphone and one's thumbs clacking its keys is not only jdiotic, it is criminal. State Troopers, State Legislators, read this editorial and do the right thing. Put peo ple who text behind the wheel where they belong behind bars!

D on't you wish you could be there to see it? Phyllis Busansky was there. She just got off the plane and was given her own wings when, I'm sure she got the news. Her mother told her. After all the bugs and sloppy kisses, Phyllis's mother pulled her to the side and whispered excitedly, "Michael Jackson is com ing! He's on his way right now, and should be here, any minute! Welcome home, Darling, but you're just in time to see the celebration!" And then, the commotion began. Spirits, who had worn flesh and celebrity in former years, once again donned their former grace, took off their wings and waited in line to shake Michael Jackson's band. Jackie Wilson "Mr Excitement" was first. He grabbed young Michael who1 was thin as a rail, and bugged him' as if there were no tomorrow. Then ; in stepped James Brown! He smacked Michael's band, bugged him like a terrier playing with a letting him go only when Marvin Gay, and Tammy' Terrell ran up to wrap their arms around the newly arrived star! each other as if each one was an accordion. Then Junior Walker stepped forward and blew once more that magnificent saxophone! Duke Ellington was there, accompanied by his friend Count Basie. Sammy Davis, Jr. strapped on dancing shoes. He and Gregory Hines joined with the immortal Step Brothers to do the Moonwalk in honor of the young man they mentared. Nat King Cole saun tered out of the crowd, hold ing hands with the immortal Billie Holiday. Ella Fitzgerald and Dinah Washington both jumped with excitement, like schoolgirls with a Michael Jackson crush. And C. Blythe Andrews wrote it all down for the next issue of the Heavenly Sentinel. Then, suddenly, in the midst o(departed saints and resurrected archangels, a dark-skinned, dreadlockwearing man in a brightwhite three-piece Brooks Brothers suit with white Stacey Adams shoes, stepped forward, gtasped Michael's hand,. kissed him on the cheek, and with a smile that only a loving father could give : said, "Welcome home, my son, Job N ews should not have any color.

Black American h1slghf J;89e 4-A cotirt iD MiSSouA was dented in favor of the iower court .. Having garnered the finan cial support of Peter Blow's sons, abolitionists and the Republican Party, Scott and his attorneys appealed to the United States Supreme Court in hopes that the lower court's ruling would be overturned. Unfortunately, the Supreme Court was led by Chief Justice Roger B. Taney, said to have been an avid supporter of slavery, as well .. o ,._ ''= 4 : o ..

While the ruling and merits of the c;ase are complex, in summary, Chief Justice Taney issued the Court's majority opinion, stating "because Scott was Black, he was not a citizen and there fore, bad no rlgbt to sue. In an interesting turn of events, Peter Blow's sons who bad been Scott's child hood friends, and who bad helped to pay Scott's legal fees, were the ones who made Scott a free !Dan. When the Supreme Court ruled against Scott, Blow's sons purchased Scott and his family, and then set them free. The Scotts continued to live in St. Louis where Scott became a hotel porter and helped Harriett operate a laundry business. He died nine years later. Now we know the truth about Dred Scott, a persis tent, persevering and coura geous Black man who loved his family as niucb as be loved his freedom. Harambee!

Sports Ex-HS Star's Experiment In Europe Paid Oft Brandon Jennings at NBA draft. NEW YORK -Brandon Jennings sat in his hotel room fully dressed in his suit with a car waiting downstairs, hoping its final destination would be Madison Square Garden. When Jennings' name was called by NBA commissioner David Stern as the 1oth overall pick, there was a sigh of relief from everyone in the room-including his mother, Alice. Sonny Vaccaro, the for mer shoe company operative who was sitting in Madison Square Garden and helped nudge the point guard to Italy just about a year ago to the day, had the same reaction. "I'm ecstatic," Vaccaro said. "It all worked out," added Jennings. The Italy experiment could now be deemed a success. What people still don't quite understand, though, is that Jennings didn't have much of a choice when he chose to play overseas instead of a year of college basketball at Arizona. "I would have went to Arizona if the NCAA had cleared me," the 6-foot-2 Jennings said shortly after being taken by the Milwaukee Bucks. "No question." But who could fault Jennings for taking the more than $1.5 million deal? But Jennings was more than happy with the conclu sion of the Italy experiment. Jeremy Tyler, the 6-foot10 San Diego teen who's bypassing his last 1-1/2 years of high school, will be next to give it a shot. Dolphins And Plavers Take on Twiner Imposters DAVONEBESS Of all the things profession al athletes have to protect themselves against, it appears identitY theft"on the Intef'net has become more prevalent. Imposter Twitter, MySpace and Facebook accounts from professional athletes are pop ping up all over, and the disturbing trend doesn't just impact big name stars. This week second-year Dolphins receiver Davone Bess, who wasn't drafted coming out of Hawaii last year, was being impersonated by a Twitter user named "Lambo_ Weezy." The fake had made multiple postings claiming he was Bess, and a number of them were in-flammatory, like when he challenged Tennessee running back Chris Johnson to a footrace Johnson accepted. The fake also hosted a live chat as Bess, who established himself as one of "the NFL's top rookie receivers last season after catching 54 passes for 554 yards and one touchdown. Bess and his agent Kenny Zuckerman notified the Dolphins and the NFL, which put pressure on Twitter to force "Lambo_ Weezy" to change his identity. His pro file presently features a pic ture of Michael Jackson. Coincidentally, Dolphins quarterback Chad Penningtmi also had a twitter nnposter, whofliad. a rivet ing sense of humor, routinely poking fun at Pennington's teammates. "I don't have time to be on Twitter, Facebook, MySpace, none of those things," Pennington said earlier this summer. "Let everyone know none of that stuff is the real me." . "Relatively speaking, I don't know what the damage is, but no one wants to be imperson ated," Zuckerman said. "It's not identify theft in the true sense, with someone using their credit or opening up accounts in his name, but it definitely can be troublesome to someone who is famous." Vikings WR Harvin Sent Home From Rookie svmoosium PERCY HARVIN PALM BEACH GARDENS, FL-Minnesota Vikings firstround draft pick Percy Harvin was sent home from the NFL Rookie Symposium after becoming ill, organizers said Monday. This is the second time that Harvin has become ill after traveling this offseason. He missed the Vikings' initial rookie minicamp in May when he was hospitalized for a virus and severe dehydration after vomiting on a flight from Florida to Atlanta on his way to Minnesota. Eagles Agree To 4-Year Deal With RBMcCov LESEAN MCCOY .,. The Philadelphia Eagles have agreed to a four-year contract with second-round draft pick runnfng back LeSe an McCoy, the team confirmed Monday. McCoy, who provides insurance behind the dynamic but injury prone Brian Westbrook, was chosen No. 53 overall. He's the first sec ond-round pick to sign. McCoy, who played at the University of Pittsburgh, rushed for 2,816 yards and 35 touchdowns while adding 65 receptions for 549 yards in two seasons. He ran for 1,488 yards and 21 touchdowns last year. T.O. Bids Farewell To Dallas N 0 0 CD DUNCANVILLE, Texas-As Terrell Owens made his personal "Farewell to Dallas" tour this week, holding a football camp for kids and a "Thanks for the Love" party for adults, the flamboyant wide receiver went out pretty much the way he came in providing plentY of fodder for folks on either side of the love-hate debate. Following the youth camp Thursday, Owens talked to reporters about his new situ ation with the Buffalo Bills and what went wrong with the Dallas Cowboys. Asked what went wrong between him and Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, Owens repeatedly said, "I don't know." "Obviously, somebody is lying," Owens said. "All I know is that I'm not here." Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has said Owens was cut to help establish Romo TERRELL OWENS as the team's unquestioned ., leader. Owens said Romo 0 could have established him:a self before, but "that didn't happen." en "So I will be the scapegoat," m Owens said.

Out To Prove That Turning 30 Doesn't Mean He's Too Old LADAINIAN TOMLINSON FORT WORTH, TX -LaDainian .Tomlinson laughs about the phone call he received this week from his younger brother; who referred to the San Diego Chargers' running back as an "ancient old man" on his 30th bhthday. As for the thought that oth ers might be ready to apply the same label, L.T. shows a sly grin. The skeptics have their reasons to wonder about the 2006 NFL MVP, who has played all eight seasons in San Diego an_ d received a reworked three-year contract in March. Tomlinson is coming off a 2008 season in which he had a career-low 1,110 rushing yards, though that was still fourth-best in the AFC.

Before you dedde. asktJsto about our qualifications and Local Neighborhood Watch Coordinator Saw Potential Of Area BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel City Editor Several years ago, when Ms. Tonya Thomas began look ing for a place to relocate to be closer to work, she looked in several areas. One of those areas was Sulphur Springs. She learned that it was ideal and moved from Town N' Country into her home in 2005. But, it was not until after her home was burglarized that Ms. Thomas decided to take an active role in the neighborhood she would call home. "I had to do something besides cry and pray. My first thought was to put my Nikes on and take off. "I came to realize that life is filled with tests and I was en couraged to just be still and know that God was there. I de cided to stay." After the burglary, Ms. Thomas said she wondered why her? But, after the burglary, she came to realize that the neighborhood could be better if neighbors worked to gether. She also realized that someone had to take a leader ship role. That same year, Ms. Thomas got involved in the neighborhood and took over MS. TONYA THOMAS Sulphur Springs Neighbor hood Watch Coordinator the role of Coordinator. Since that time, she has worked to improve the quality of life in Sulphur Springs. In addition to bringing neighbors together in a posi tive way, Ms. Thomas said a Neighborhood Watch also brings resources into the area. Working with the police department and getting to know officers assigned to the area also helps in reducing the crime rate in the area. Some of those resources re sulted in the establishment of the Weed & Seed Program, the RICH House, and programs brought into the area under the Iorio Administration. "We have some awesome ,challenges, but we have great benefits as well. It's great just to be able to connect with the people in your neighborhood," Ms. Thomas said. A native of Tampa and Col lege Hill, Ms. Thomas attended the public schools of Hillsborough County. She attended Brandon High School and graduated from Hillsbor ough High School. Bytrade,Ms. Thomas is an Insurance Agent and Hair Stylist, who enjoys reading, the love of God, and has a passion for people. She is a member of Unity Nondenominational Church of Clearwater. Ms. Thomas has no re grets about serving as the Co ordinator of the Neighborhood Watch. "I felt that I could make a difference, I could make where I live a better place." -----lNG YOU A SAFE AlllfiAPPY 4TH OF. JULY HOLIDAYI. A. P. GIBBS, ESQ MATIHEW KOCHEVAR ESQ E. PARNELl.

The rules we have to follow in this spiritual walk are rules or laws that God has established to help us live a quality life in Him. These rules that God has given has the purpose of helping God's children make sure they live a life that He is well pleased with. This week's. lesson in Deuteronomy 5:1-9a, 11-13 discusses the laws God gave to His people. Following these laws will lead an individual to living a rich life and having a long and loving relationship with God. The key to it all is found in verse one; .. .learn them, and keep and do them." Every believer must accept the responsibility of learning the rules or laws God has established. It is often diffi cult for people to practice what they have not learned. Once.an individual accepts the call of God to enter into relationship he/she has to accept the task of learning what God expects. When a person gets a driver's license he/she becomes responsible for all the rules and regula tions that pertains to operat ing a motor vehicle. St. Mark Missionary Baptist Clhurch 7221 S.

You cannot claim that you did not do something because you did not know. You as an individual must learn what you must do and how you must live. Not only must you learn them, you must keep them. You must not just hear what the laws are saying, learn them, and then forget about them. You have to make sure that you keep them in your mind and in your heart. Keep them in good times and bad. Keep them when you feel like it and you don't. You should keep them even when you fallOne of the most important elements of the laws of God . is doing them. You must make every good effort to do what God has required of you. The rules God has set forth will require action and work. Doing some of the rules may require more work for some and less for others. Some rules you might like to do and some you inay not.

In each generation there was some form of covenant between God and His people. One of the important notes to be realized is that it is a person al relationship and the covenant is fitting for. the generation at hand. These rules are not just given by any god. These are rules given by a specific God. You are not entering into covenant with just any god; you are entering into agree ment with a specific God. Your obedience to these rules is vital to your relationship. The God you are enter. ing into covenant with God who delivers. He is the one who delivered you out of bondage. These rules that God has given, are not rules to make your life miserable. He has given you these rules to make sure that you know what He expects of those He is in covenant with.

It was Fellows Day for old classmates of Middleton High School recently at an area park. It's been over 30 years since they were all together in such great num bers. Harold Langston con tacted a few friends and told them he was planning a get together. They all agreed that it was time to do some thing like that. In 1971 (desegregation), a lot of the Tigers at the event were in the 10th grade when they were faced with the worst news they could ever get: Middleton was being closed. Standing (from left to Chelmer Goodson, Keith Henry, Melvin Winbush, Stanley Bradford, Ernest Adams, Harold Langston, Joe Baker, and James Bass McGill. Kneeling are Charles Thomas and Otis Dudley. In the summer of 1971, Coach Billy Reed made the announcement during a football practice that Middleton was closing that the students would get a notice in the mail as to what school they would be attending. Langston said that's when they lost contact with each other and moved in dif ferent directions in life. "Middleton meant the world to us. It was so rich in history and heritage. We all had big dreams of following in the footsteps of our big brothers and other legendary students that came before us." Langston said they are planning another Fellows Day in July, and asks that anyone interested in attend ing who was a part of their class or any class at Middleton before desegregation, contact him at (813) 802-4278, or by email at haroldlangston8g@yaboo.co m. ..

Local Communilv Group Takes Students On Two-CitV Tour Greco Middle School instructor, and founder of Molding Outcomes, Karen Willis-Barrett, has spent the past 15 years serving the youth of Tampa Bay. Among her endeavors was: starting a group home for girls; hosting community leadership summits at the University of South Florida along with her mentor, Dr. Donna Elam; hosting monthly community picnics at Desoto Park; and bringing together schools, community leaders and busi nesses to mentor students; A year ago, Mrs. WillisBarrett started planning a two-city tour for 10 middle school students'::'On June 27th, those plans resulted in the students enjoying a tour of Washington, D.C. and New York City. "While in .Washington, D.C., the students toured the historical monuments and even toured inside the White House. A former King High School graduate, Traci Bexley, met the students and led them on a tour of Howard University." The students also toured New York City and stayed at NEW YORK STUDENTS the MidTown Manhattan. In New York, the students visited the Statute of Liberty and Ellis Island, the 9/11 site, Time Square and histor ical Harlem. They spent the day at the Museum of Natural History. "During our trip to New York, I was able to share some of my own experiences growing up there. "Our kids are idle during the summer, so I thought this would be a great learn ing experience for them. I felt the New York sttidefllts could motivate the Tampa students. The whole thing was extraordinary.:' _,.;. Mrs. Willis-Barrett said the students were more excited about meeting each other than they were visiting the various venues in New York. "The students from Tampa are pen pals with the students from New York and that sets them apart." The students attended the graduation of Life Sciences Secondary School that bragged an 86%, 4-year graduation rate with a go%+ minority population. Karen Willis-Barnett Oeft) and New York school princi-. pal Genevieve Stanislaus. Principal, Mrs. Genevieve Stanislaus was an encour aging force behind this part nership.

Shingles (herpes zoster) is a viral infection of the nerve roots. It causes pain and often causes a rash on one side of the body, the left or right. The rash appears in a band, a strip, or a small area. Shingles is most common in older adults and people who have weak immune systems because of stress, in jury, certain medicines, or other reasons. Most people who get shingles will get better and will not get it again. What causes shingles? Shingles occurs when the virus that causes chickenpox starts up again in your body. After you get better from chick enpox, the virus "sleeps" (is dormant) in your nerve roots. In some people, it stays dormant forever. In others, the virus "wakes up" when disease, stress, or aging weakens the immune system. It is not clear why this happens. But after the virus becomes active again, it can only cause shingles, not chickenpox. You can't catch shingles from someone else who has shingles. What are the symptoms? Shingles symptoms happen in stages. At first you may have a headache or be sensitive to light. You may also feel like you have the flu but not have a fever. Later, you_ may feel itching, tingling, or pain in a certain area. That's where a band, strip, or small area of rash may occur a few days later. The rash turns into clusters of blisters. The blisters fill with fluid and then crust over. It takes 2 to 4 weeks for the blisters to heal, and they may leave scars. Some people only get a mild rash, and some do not get a rash at all. It's possible that you could also feel dizzy or weak, or you could have long-term pain or a rash on your face, changes in your vision, changes in how well you can think, or a rash that spreads. If you have any of these problems from shingles, call your doctor right away. How is shingles treated? There is no cure for shingles, but treatment may help you get well sooner and prevent other problems. Call your doctor as soon as you think you may have shingles.

And use over-the counter pain medicines to re lieve pain. Avoid contact with people until the rash heals. While you have shingles, you can spread chickenpox to people who have never had chickenpox. Be extra careful to avoid people with weak immune systems and pregnant women and babies who have never had chicken pox. Who gets shingles? Anyone who has had chicken pox can get shingles. You have a greater chance of getting shingles if you: Are older than so. Have an autoimmune disease that causes your immune sys tem to attack your body's own tissues. Have another health problem or stress that weakens the im mune system. If you have never had chick enpox, avoid touching some one who has shingles or chickenpox.

Local Entertainment local Radio Show Host Said He's Glad That Michaelis Dead By SunMan An American icon that was born to sing and dance his way to fortune, fame and into the hearts of people all over the world was pronounced dead in Los Angeles last Thursday from cardiac arrest. June 25, 2009 will be yet another day in American history when most all of us will recall exactly what we were doing, where we were and what our immediate reaction was to the news that Michael Jackson had died. By now, the whole commu nity and indeed most of the world is aware of the untimely death of the great est American entertainer the world has ever known, but on the morning after that bombshell announcement, a long time Bay area radio talk show host, Ron "Ronnie D" Diaz made the comment that he was "glad" that Michael Jackson is dead and implied that the world is better for it. The comments made on the Ron & Ian Show is careless and insensi tive, coming at a time when so many people around the world are mourning. This seems to be an atmosphere that is fostered at this radio station (WDAE 62oAM), a Clear Channel Communica tions (CCC) owned radio station. His reasoning being that Jackson was an alleged child molester, Diaz repeat ed several times his pleasure at the death of the 50:.yearold entertainer. .. ::.. Mr. Diaz, has had his own share of jssues, including a .. with the law back in 2000 when he was charged with DUI after leavi:Qg the : scene of a routine traffic sto.p, refusing to take a breathalyzer test and then' offering up a cock,and bull story how to .. that's when he went home and consumed alcohol. After the arrest and release of his unlikely story, CC released a statement, "Ron, who is a 20-year on-air veteran of the Tampa Bay area, has been very proactive in many community charitable events over his distinguished career. Ron has expressed his deep remorse for his action." There seems to be a pattern of tolerance at WDAE that is evident when looking at their history of on-air personalities with DUI arrest records. When WDAE became a sports talk station in 1997, one of the hosts to help build the station was WFLA-TV sports anchor Chris Thomas. He hosted the Chris Thomas Show. Off the air, Thomas battled alcoholism most of his adult life. In 2002, Mr. Thomas made headlines over an arrest for driving under the influence. In January 2003, he was involved in a drunk driving accident with a Buccaneers cheerleader. After Thomas died in February 2004, the WDAE studio was renamed the Chris Thomas Studio. It was WDAE's Steve "Big Dog" Duemig, who dislikes the NBA said that former NBA star Malik Sealy was at fault for having been killed by a drunk driver in 2000, but was quick to defend a hockey player char'ged with vehicular homicide when he was dri ving under the influence of alcohol and killed his teamin a Duemig himself was arrest ed in 'o8 for DUI and he too supported by Clear Channel. It was also Duemig who made strong statements in 2002 about drugs being the reason that Tampa. Bay Buccaneer utjve Doug Wi!liams . NEW HOMES!!! ... Many Locations Available VisitOurModeiTodayAt: !!:! 3705 Hillcrest Circle II!IIIIIIHCOllltS: {81CJA)L2L1N8ow3!7u29 www.amhousing.com not re-signed by the team after the 1982 season. It is unclear what the status of Duemig's DUI case is at this time, but he is still on the air. How ironic it is that Mr. Diaz is happy that Michael Jackson is dead, but it was Michael that has given and raised millions of dollars for AIDS awareness. This comes after Ron Diaz' wife, Debbie, died of AIDS in 1995. This of course is not to say that one thing has anything to do with the other but there is such thing as sensitivity, prejudice and karma. Jackson's image to the world was one of near royal ty. One can't get anymore royal in America unless you are a Native American Hero and when was the last time we heard about one of those? When you see Michael in those military inspired out fits and the portraits of him outfitted like a Prince or a King, it is because this is how the world saw Michael. The great American idol ever and it is widely believed that he was treated unfairly by some in the media. Micha.el Jackson was America's gift to the world and he was loved by many. Do us all a favor and mix in a little sensitivity training and maybe a twelve step program or two over at Clear Channel Communications. Entenainer Visits Church Of Celebritv Jet Set Hudson and Rev. Dr. Della Reese Lett. Jesse "Jet Set" Hudson has made the most of his opportunities in Hollywood, California. The Tampa native has always had the spirit and motivation. "All I've ever done in my life, I've always thought about others. I've always felt my success would mean I could help others do the same. I don't brag, and I don't expect any special recognition." Over the past few weeks, Jet Set has found the time to visit houses of worship in Holiywood. For the first time on May 1oth, he Visited the Understanding Principle's for Living Church, pastured and 'founded by actress, Rev. Dr. Della Reese-Lett.

Entertainment Settling ::\lidmd .Jackson's Estate May Be a Thrillt.r The King of Pop \'Viii likely leave behind one royal estate battle. Although he sold hundreds of millions of records, Jackson's biggest financial hit is a so% interest in a music publishing catalog that includes the rights to the Beatles' songs. Jackson, 50, always stayed one beat ahead of a conga line of creditors. At every turn there seemed to be one more wealthy benefactor to bail him out. Most recently that was Thomas Barrack, the founder oi the Los Angeles real estate investment firm Colony Capital. Last year, Barrack purchased Jackson's Neverland Ranch near Santa Barbara, Calif., for $22 million, just before the property was sold at auction to cover back debts. Barrack also brought in Denver billionaire Philip Anschutz, who was helping finance a comeback for the singer. Jackson was scheduled to play a series of 50 concerts at London's 02 Arena, which Anschutz owns. The concerts, for which Jackson was to be paid $1 million per night, were to begin July 13 Ticket holders, who paid more than $85 million for the shows, are entitled to refunds. The singer's untimely passing sets up a potential battle between Anschutz's company, its ins1,1rers, and the Jackson estate over who will cover the money already sunk into the production. Spokespeople for both Barrack and Anschutz's entertainment business decline.d to comment; Financial Assets Included Sony/A1V Catalog A genius of a songwriter and performer, Jackson was not so in tune with his personal finances. At one point the star owed more than $270 million to Bank of America (BAC). In 2005 the bank sold that debt at a discount to the private equity firm Fortress Investment Group (FIG). who reportedly spent as much as $30 million a year during the good times on clothes, travel, and toys for his ranch, successfully fought an attempt to auction many of his personal possessions ear lier this year. Over the years those suing Jackson for past-due bills included his former publicist, video director, attorney, and financial advisers. The star had one asset that will likely be the target of much maneuvering by credi tors and heirs in the coming months and years-his so% interest in the Sony/ATV music catalog. Shortly after his string of early 1980s hits that included Thriller, one of the best-selling albums of all time, Jackson was shrewdly advised to buy the Beatles catalog for $47 million. Ten years later, Jackson merged his music company with Sony Corp.'s (SNE) music publish ing arm in a deal reportedly worth $90 million to him. Today, that company owns the publishing rights to thou sands of hit songs by every one from Neil Diamond to Lady Gaga. Music publishers collect royalties from radio stations, movie studios, and record labels every time a song is played or album sold. Jackson's half interest has been estimated to be worth as much as $500 million. .own.hits are owned by a separate ny, also now part of his estate. But like his life, Jackson's estate is unlikely to be settled without controversy.

Michael Will 'Live On,' Says Brother Marlon MARLON And MICHAEL ln1984 As fans and friends dealt with the death of Michael Jackson on Thursday, the pop star's family was also reeling from the shock of his sudden passing. Marlon Jackson was able to speak to the press about his final interaction with his so-year-old younger brother, who had been in Los Angeles rehears ing for his upcoming 50 con certs in London. Marlon, 52, talked to Essence.com about how he first heard the news of his brother's death. "I talked to Frank Dileo, Michael's manager. Frank told me that Michael last night was complaining about not feeling well. "He called to tell him he wasn't feeling well," contin ued the second-youngest Jackson 5 member. "Michael's doctor went over to see him, and Frank said, 'Marlon, from last night to this morning, I don't know what happened.' When they got to him this morning, he wasn't breathing. They rushed him to the hospital and couldn't bring him around. That's what happened. They don't know what happened." The last time Marlon saw Michael was last month at a family gathering, and he insists that Michael looked healthy at the time. "Michael looked great. He was looking well. He was getting ready to go into rehearsals for his tour. I don't know what happened," he told Essence, adding, "He c wasn't in a wheelchair. He was walking around with his c... kids. When we saw him, he C: wasn't in a wheelchair. We all talked. He was doing 1\) great." o 0 CD Michael Holds Relnnl In Guincss Book As The Most Charitable Stm Michael Jackson died on June 25, 2009.

Jackson \\'rapped \'ideo Bcfmc Dlath LES --Two weeks before he di ed, Michael Jackson wrapped t'p work on an elaborate pro 1ction dubbed the "Dome P roject" that be the final finished video piece overseen by the King of Pop. It was a five-week project filmed at Culver Studios which 70 years ago was th; set for the classic film "Gone With the Wind." Four sets were constructed for Jackson's production, including a cemetery recalling his 1983 "Thriller" video. Shooting for the project lasted from June 1-9, with Jackson on the set most days. Now in post-production, the project is expected to be completed next month. Michael Roth, a spokesman for Jackson's Los Angeles-based promoter AEG Live, said he hadn't heard about the production but did not rule that it could be part of the company's contract with the entertainer. Jackson left a memorable impression on the crew, arriving in a caravan of SUVs with hulking security guards in tow. Jackson introduced himself to workers on the set and walked with a spring in his step but at one point needed assistance as he descended steps off a stage. Besides the cemetery, one set was draped in black with an oversized portrait of Jackson in his "Thriller" werewolf costume. Another set was designed to simulate a lush jungle, and a fourth was built to replicate a construc tion site, with a screen in the back to allow projection of backgrounds.
