Features Alleged Credit Union Fraud Case Nets Arrest 01 Pastor, 3 Others Four Tampa men were taken into custody on Wednesday in connection with an alleged fraud scheme at a Tampa credit union. The men are facing charges ranging from identity theft to money laundering. Taken into custody and charged were: Pastor Donnell Dewitt Williams, 36, who was released from the Hillsborough County Jail after posting a $51,000 bond. Williams, who is the pastOI: of the House of Praise Church of God in Christ, was charged with money launder ing, grand theft, and 6 counts of fraudulent use of personal information. Kenta Rashawn Fabian, 23, who is said to be a member of Williams' church, was released after posting a bond of $13,500. : He was ch;1rged with 3 counts of fraudulent use of personal information and grand theft in the third degree. Larry Eugene Grace, 38, had not posted the $30,500 bond on Thursday. He was charged with 3 counts of fraudulent use of personaf information, and 4 counts of grand theft third degree. Erick Rashad Barr, 31, was released after posting a $4,000 bond. He was charged with fraudulent use of personal information and grand theft third degree. According to the Hillsborough County Sheriffs Office, the investigation began after Suncoast Schools Federal Credit Union Risk Management contacted police in reference to individuals obtaining fraudulent loans in February 2009. Employees are said to have requested the investigation after discrepan cies were discovered with sev eral loans. Hillsborough County Economic Crimes Unit detec-Good Swimmer, 11, Drowns at Public Pool For years, Brittany Mills has joined a group of kids from Jackson Heights Park during the summer. She learned to swim during one of those summers, and according to her aunt, .Sherrell Carswell, Brittany was an avid swimmer. However, her drowning Wednesday has left her family in deep mourning and looking for answers. Brittany was swimming at Cyrus Green pool when a life guard noticed her at the bottom of the pool's deep end. The lifeguard jumped and pulled her out of the water. A Tampa Police Officer conduct ed a safety check at the pool as the lifeguard was pulling the child out. The officer and lifeguard performed CPR until Tampa Fire Rescue arrived and transported the child to St. Joseph's Hospital, She was pronounced dead at 2:35p.m. Officials said there were 30 to 40 kids in the pool at the time of the incident, and there were three 'lifeguards on dutY; The American Red Cross standards call for one lifeguard for every 25 children. The maximum occupancy of the pool is 63. Ms. Carswell said they were told Brittany had been swimming with another child, racing down the pool when the incident happened. "We understand that she was racing against a boy. He was swimming on top of the water and she was swimming underneath. He turned and didn't see her, and thought she had gotten out of the water." "We feel a lack of supervi sion was responsible for this. I think chaperones from the BRITTANY MILLS .... was an avid swimmer park should have been at the poolside keeping an eye on the kids. With that many kids, there should have been more people." Ms. Carswell said they want a full investigation into what happened, and if anyone has information they want to share, contact police. Brittany was a former stu dent of Oak Park Elementary, and in the fall, she was going to attend Franklin Middle School. She was the youngest of Arnita Mills' three children. Her father is Jeff Mills. According to a Ms. Mills learned of her daugh ter's drowning while at work. According to the source, she was told that she needed to come to the hospital and iden tify her. Brittany's mom and grand rpother had to be hospitalized after learning of her death. Brittany loved cheerlead ing, dancing, stepping, and drawing. He favorite color was pink, and she loved Hello Kitty and Sponge Bob. Funeral arrangements for Brittany are still being worked out by family members at this time. PASTOR DONNELL WILLIAMS tives, determined that the alleged crimes occurred between July 26, 2<>06 througH February 12 The investigation involved, more than 120 loan accounts and a liability exposure of more than $400,000 to the credit union. Williams was employed at the credit union as a branch manager and loan officer. He is accused of using "his posi tion to establish fraudulent loans to co-defendants by. fal sifying the loan applications. Williams also used his position to circumvent security measures, used the personal information of others, both with and without their consent and received monetary gain from doing so. Williams also engaged in money laundering by filtering the ill-gotten funds through various other accounts," said. .Rillc.e described .Kent a F .ian as a close friend and member of s. Fabian is alleged other indi viduals to apply for loans at the credit union and helped in falsifying applications, including employment, income and other information that would be required in order to obtain the loans. He is also charged in connection with using personal information to fraudulently obtain loans from the business. "Fabian recruited family members and assisted them in improperly obtaining loans and received illegal monetary gain from these transactions," police said. Police described Larry Grace as a former member of Williams' church and alleges that "he criminally used the information of oth ers, including family members and a deceased person to fraudulently obtain funds from the credit union." Police described Erick Barr as a cl.ose friend of Williams, and said he "falsi fied loan applications for both himselfand another to illegal ly obtain money from the credit union." According to jail records, Fabian is employed by the City of Tampa, and Barr stated that he is self-employed. Both Williams and Grace stated they were unemployed at the time they were booked into the jail. The investigation spanned five months and resulted in the four arrests. However, police said other arrests are possible as the investigation continues. The Sentinel was unsuccessful in attempts to contact Pastor Williams. ..... 9 I\) 0 0 CD "T1 r-0 C/) m z -1 z m r;m c: r 1 m ::f z ., c: OJ r-u; ::I: m c m < m -1 c: m C/) c )> z c ., :D 8 C) m (.,) I )>

But getting federal assistance and intervention when hate crimes are committed in communities across America is not as easy as you may think. Ask veteran Congressman John Conyers (Michigan) -who introduced a Congressional bill to expand existing 0 hate crime prevention laws and to allow the federal gova: ernment to assist local authorities in the investigation ""' 0 and prosecution, regardless of where or what the victim z was doing when the crime took place. Conyers' legislac( tion also expands the definition of a hate crime to include those motivated by the victim's disabilities, gene der or sexual orientation. The legislation-provides fundCJ) ing to states for developing hate crime prevention programs. What probably makes Conyers smile is his fellow t-Senators are currently considering a similar bill (Senate i: Bill 909), introduced by none other than Senator Ted w Kennedy. > That hate crimes in America continue io increase at a w 0 daily rate, and that the number of hate crime groups has w exploded by more than 54 percent over the past 8 years, X would cause few to argue stronger anti-hate crime legist/) :::; lation is needed. Though many hate crimes are not as m high profile or as deadly as the most recent murder of a => Black security guard at the Jewish Holocaust Museum in D.. Z Washington, D. C., hate crimes are mushrooming across i= America. W To make matters worse, our tederal government admits it can only intervene in hate crime investigations => and prosecutions when such crimes occur on federal m property or such victims have participated in one of six w very specific activities including voting or religious wor-Z ship. All of that means this. We need Senate Bill 909, i= NOW! z w C/) c( c a: 0 _. ""' Growing Pains For Painful Growingil 0 nee again, our fair city has made the history books. Not only can the City of Tampa boast it is the home of the Tampa Bay Bucs and the world-champion Lightning, and that it was once the home of the largeSt posted poem in the history of the world, but now it can boast about becoming the 53rd largest city in the entire United States. City Council members were unavailable for comment, but undoubtedly a toast and bouts of back-slapping were experienced by Tampa's demographic movers and shakers. We, at the Sentinel, are excited, too. But in the midst of mounting municipal budget cuts, we wonder whether we should whoop or weep. Everywhere we look; Tampa is cutting back or municipally shutting down. In fact, its county governmental counterpart has gone to an even riskier realm of fiscal Russian roulette in its seemingly never-ending attempt to lop off whatever personnel or department--ser-vices seemingly its constituents can do without. As one of our columnists recently concluded, the County's lay-offs might one day leave that organization with only the c( County Administrator and a laptop. Perhaps, such a comment was a bit too satirical, but everyone got the w idea. CJ Yes, it is good to know our city is growing, having increased from 54thJargest city (339,130) to the 53rd The e conomy has been the lead topi c of conver s .ation for s e veral months. The futu r e continues to be bleak, with only spots of sunshine that acts as a teaser of hope. As a result of the state of the economy Americans con tinue to demonstrate outstanding resilience. In fact, in many cases folks are taking the lemons that life is doling out and making gallons of lemonade One example of this extra ordinary survival characteris tic is our ability to conform. Some people have been unfortunate enough to witness companies they have worked for close down. Others have been laid off after years of loyal employment. And, in some cases, many of these people were within a couple of years or even mo n ths of being v e sted for re ti r ement. The rest of us who have been fo rtunate enough to hold on to our jobs so far, have learned the real mean ing of compromise We have learned that when the purse strings are so tight that th e y are abou t to break we make the right choices We have come to realize that a job even with less than forty hours per week, is bette r than no job at all. The one thing this economy has taught everyone is that no one is immune In the past, those who were the last hired were the first to face layoffs. But those days have gone. Now instead of longevity, the decision mak ers are reviewing what is critical to keep the company afloat Ne verth eless, we all realize just ho w fra gil e a nd unc erta in the future can be. Mos t p e o ple are living on a tight bud get and hoping that the bills remain in a certain r ange. They are also praying that no unex pected e x pense, su c h as a car repair, suddenly pop up Those without insurance hope and pray daily that they won' t be in need of medic a l attention. Those who used to visit the doctor's office now go to the emergency room. Everyone is facing an uncertain, but we constantly display the fact that we are survivors. So, instead of harping on the negative we can all marvel at how we have learned how to conserve, compensate, and compromise our lives to fit the situation Reparations: An Ongoing Debate M ention reparations for slavery and watch eyes begin to roll or glaze over. Imagine certain scientists receiving the same response when they first mentioned flying to the moon. And no, the United States did NOT promise" all freed slaves "20 acres and a mule," upon their emancipation. According to several sources, compensation to slaves and to their heirs has been a topic of discussion for generations since the end of the Civil War. Just to clarify the issue, however, sla very is a proposal to compen sate the descendants of slaves held in America for the forced labor they performed from 1619 through 1865. Talk about controversial! Try introducing this topic to a mixed group of friends and watch the room light up like the Fourth of July. Nevertheless, on the "20 acres and a mule" issue, this rural legend is based upon land reparations given to Blacks in South Carolina by General Tecumseh Sherman only to be taken away later by President Andrew Johnson. According to Wikipedia, "in 1865, after the Confederate States of America were defeated in the American Civil War, General William Tecumseh Sherman issued Special Field orders No. 15 to-solve problems caused by the masses of refugees a temporary plan granting each freed family forty acres of tillable land in the sea islands and around Charleston, South Carolina for the exclusive use of Black people wlio had been enslaved." the army had a surplu s of mules, many of the families also were given a mule Thus, approximately 40,000 freed slaves set up homestead on 400,000 acres of land in Georgia and South Carolina, which were promptly seized and returned to previous owners by President Andrew Johnson, after the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln. In 1867, Congressman Thaddeus Stevens unsuc cessfully sponsored a bill for the redistribution of land to Blacks. Today, determining how, in what form and. how much to compensate the deseendailts ef slaes is a complex and divisive issue, to the extent that many Amel'ieans : cannot discuss the issue without becoming emo tional. However, as time has passed, reparations have drawn the support of high profile scholars, religious leaders, philanthropists and prestigious attorneys.

With so many municipal cut-backs, who is going to be responsible for coordinating all our continued good fortune? Put it this way? If we can continue to move forward with less, then perhaps, we never needed it, at When it comes to downsizing and lay-offs, perhaps our local governments should be car.eful what they wish for.

He Couldn't Have Done It Bv Himself Now, who do they think they're kidding? If Bernard Madoff drank all the Geritol in the world, he would not live to be 1SO years old, let alone serve 1SO years, in prison. The judge who sentenced him said it was "symbolic." Said His-Honor, ''I'm trying to make an example out of this evil man!" And what kind of an example might that be, when not even Superman has been known to live lSO years. But we 401K-Americans are fit to be tied. Someone told me the other day, that a group of citizens and voters had gotten together a petition to demand Mad off be tarred and feathered ... not too much tar and feathers so that he might die, but just enough tar and feathers so that it itch es him whenever he goes to the bathroom. "And why shouldn't it hurt him in the same place it hurts us?" shout retirees and investors who have lost everything they owned including their dreams because of Madoff's madness! BUT WHAT DID THE MAN DO? I'll tell you what he did HE ABUSED OUR TRUST!! He WHAT? I'll tell you "what!" People are mad, not because he stole from em. Aw, heck, everybody does that! People are burnt out with Bernard because he got caught! And what happened when Bernard got caught? He lost money! And whose money did Madoff lose when he got caught? (Repeat after me. ) "He lost OURRRRRRRR MONEEEEEY!" Thaaaaaat's right. How much do you wanna bet the. judge who senteneed r fiim was f sitting on a big, fat 401K or at least a pretty pension or money stashed-somew'here; on the Stock Market. 1 People are up in arms about what Madoff did, not because he made-off with something (Heck, former Vice Pres. Cheney did that), but because Madoff scared Hell out of everybody including certain people who don't like to be frightened, especially not about their money. And the federal judge, who sentenced him had the nerve to say he handed Madoff his head in order to deter other robber-barons from doing what Madoff did Well, that's just superkeen, Yer Honor. But don't you think your judgment is like closing the door to the henhouse after the fox has been in there, for dinner? And who else has made off with America's millions, most recently? Try Bernard Ebbers, former WorldCom CEO who ran off with $11 billion and got put in the slam for 2S years. And what about Dennis Kozlowski, former PoohBah ofTyco International Ltd, who got pinched for so many counts of grand larceny it made the jury dizzy an d who got sent to Riker's Island for a quarter-of a hundred years' stay. Indeed, the tradition of embezzlement in America is so classical that many historians and economists simply shrug and say, "If you wanna get rich in America, put glue on your fingers because there's no such thing as a self made millionaires, not even if you win the Lottery!" Yes, Bernard Madoff has gone to jail for one and a half centuries. And people are still angry But anger isn't the real reason they want Madoff's scalp. Folks are mad with Madoff because Mad off is a pCJster hoY' for-just how greedy many Americans have become. That's right. Madoff didn1t ste country.

They for some reason can't coll1e to grips with fact that their time has passed, and this fad or whatever you want to call it belongs to this generation, whether we approve of it or not. During our time, we had afros, bell bottom pants, loud colors, and platform shoes. Those fashion statements drove our parents crazy, but they never tried to dresses like us. They realized that a barrier needed to stay in place between their generation and their children's With this kind of stuff going on, it makes it hard for young people to have any respect for older adults. They look at older adults as being the same as they, especially when they go out and party and find older adults in the same places they frequent. It seems a lot of adults are trying to turn back the hands of time without realizing the damage they're causing.

Judging by what some of these same adults are doing today, no lesson was learned from all of that. There is a time and place for eve:ything, and this is not the time or place for older adults to emulate their children. Stay in your place, older adults, and make sure your children stay in their place When you start looking, acting and dressing like your children, you've regressed and displayed outright imm a turity.

In fact, one church was "studying ways to repay its Black church members". Supporters of reparations have scored several victories in drawing apologies for slav ery from corporations and religious organizations as well as causing a number of cities and states to enact ordinances that require busi nesses to publicize their his torical ties to slavery. Each year, more support ers join the push for compensation for slavery and Jim Crow. Many forms of repa rations have been suggested and include direct payments to descendants of slaves from the U. S. government, free education, free medical ser vices, free legal and financial aid, land as well as gold and restitution from private institutiMS. .banks and corpora tions that have historical ties to the slave trade and slavery and have benefited from the practice.

In The Hood we Called Him 'Mike' I have to be honest ... Before last week I could have cared less about Michael Jackson. It wasn't that I disliked the man. It was more a matter of being fed up with his ever-increas ing weirdness. As far as I was concerned, the running jokes had played themselves out years ago. The pet monkey, the sexual ambiguity, the nutcracker -Peter Pan persqna, the plasu. tic surgeries, the extreme fasC cination with whiteness, the sleepovers, the child > molestation charges, the dangling babies from bal(J) conies, it all became too much to deal with. 1-Stories of his life didn't > a: w > w c w J: tJ) ::::i m ::: L z i= w ...J ...J ::: m I ...J w z i= z w tJ) < c a: 0 ...J u. interest me anymore. His new music didn't move me. And every time I caught a glimpse of his mutilated African facial features. It .enraged me. I guess you could say that, to me, the King of Pop had been reduced to something less than a pauper of irrelevance. But then something unex pected happened ... He died. And I don't know what it is about death that jars a person's memory. But the minute I found out that the man I affectionately referred to as "Mike" had passed, my thoughts immediately went from disdain to fondness as I recalled a time when he could do no wrong. I remembered watching the Jackson 5 cartoon and vari ety show as a child and wish .ing that I could be part of the seemingly perfect family with the more than perfect Afros. TQe image of Mike doing the robot to the song, "Dancing Machine" flashed across my mind and I couldn't help but be reminded of how cool the brother actually was. That is the Mike most of his fans knew and loved The brown, nappy-headed Mike. The Off The Wall Mike. And even when his skin became a little lighter, his nose a little =/'/? ;Jil":. ": 4 Subscribe Today! thinner and his hair a littl e softer, we still loved the Thriller Mike because that' s when he reached his zenith. Then the Bad Mike came. The Dangerous Mike and by the time he was making HIStory, we didn t recognize him anymore. With every physical change and a bit of abnormal behavior, his spell on us slowly diminished. When we finally regained our senses, all we could see was a caricature of the man we once idolized. Mike was no longer the smooth friend we wanted to be like He was the awkward cousin that we still loved, but didn' t necessarily want to hang out with. That was the new Mike. And now he's gone, too. All we have left are the special moments he gave us. Over 40 years worth. Personally, I prefer to focus on the period between 19761985. The golden era when he was at his best Of course, it won't be long before his story hits the big screen. I imagine it will be the first time that a Black boy and a white woman will be cast to play the same lead character in a major motion picture. I don't know who'll get the role of young Mike. But my money is on Angelina Jolie to play the role of the older version. It is still hard to believe that the thrill is gone. And the worse part about it is that he never told us what, "mamasaymamasamamacusa" really meant. But that was Mike, l\1ysterious to the end. Always leaving us wanting more. You could call him a 'lot of things, but could never call hin1 boring. And that's what we'll miss about him the most So, Rest In Peace Moonwalker.

HOLTON Sentinel City Editor Many of us g rew up with th e children of Joe and Katherine Jackson. We danced to their music, collect ed their records, a nd knew the words to their songs verbatim. Many of us even viewed them as part of our own extended family. So, when the news of Michael Jackson, so, the long ago established "King of Pop," died suddenly, it sent shockwaves throughout the world. On Tuesday, perhaps for the first time in modern history, a worldwide Memorial Service was held for the late Michael Jackson. Some Sentinel readers shared their comments about the entertainer, his life, his contributions and his death. Joe Robinson, said, "In these times of change" with President Barack Obama as our first African American President. A reflection on Michael Jackson's contri butions to the world is necessary as part of our African American (Black) history, especially from the 1960s to 2000 "This is why our youth should take notes on the "good" and the ''bad," and try and make a positive differ ence today! Ms. Pat Spencer said, "Watching the Memorial ser vices for Michael Jackson was very moving. The com ments from friends and family really expressed how most of the world feels about this very talented, wonderful per son. "I r emember taking my daughter to see the "Jackson 5 in the late 70s and th e joy th a t this brought to her and her friends. The point that grabbed m y heart today was his daughter, 11 years old, expressing her love for her "daddy." We will always remember the mu sic and life of Michael Jackson, at l east I know I will." Dr. George Foxx said, I was very impressed by Paris Jackson's brief, but power ful statement and testimony regarding her father. No doubt she will always remem ber how special he was to her and his family." Carl Warren, Sr., said, "It was a Memorial Service for a true American Prince. Everything said by family members, friends, supporters, and fans pointed to the fact that despite Sir Michael's humanness, he still sailed very high above the common person while opening many doors for the hopeless and downtrodden. Ms. Tonya Lewis said, "I was just filled with mixed emotions. I was sad, happy, but most of all hurt. God uses the best of us to restore hope and love to so many. But, God needed Mr. Michael Jackson home now. All I can say now for Mr. Jackson when he went home (heaven) is a 'Job well done."' Ronnie Moorer said, "I thought the tribute to Michael Jackson was won derful. He touched so many lives with his music, dance and performances. He did RONNIE MOORER take the music world to a nother l eve l with his music videos, an d many have bene fited from that Rufus Lewis said, "Michael Jackson so richly deserved such a touching memorial. The four most touching moments to me were: #1) His daughter, Paris, thanking her father in tears for being Michael Jackson; #2) The group singing We Are The World and this is what Michael Jackson was all about; #3) His brother, Jermaine Jackson, singing, Michael's favorite song, Smile, and during this song all over the world, I don't believe there were any dry eyes. This must have been very hard for Jermaine to do, but with the help of our Lord he made it through very strong; and #4) Usher's Gone Too Soon. What more can you say?" Tom Forward said, "Michael Jackson's Memorial. Service clearly demonstrates the fragility of }ife : and \yhy .each 6I us should take the time to com municate, cultivate, and celebrate friendships and rela truly, we never know the hour at which time our ability to do otherwise will cease to exist." 11 AM.-5 P.M.

Derrick Brooks To Sign Soon? Tiger Working On A Banner Year Former Tampa Ba y Buccaneer Derrick Brooks, said that he intended to play pro football somewhere next season. Word is that there are some teams interested in hav ing Brooks pla y for them I have yet to hear the identity of a n y of these teams, but Derrick Brooks is confident he will be back on the football field some time next season. Could it be that Brooks' signing with another team could be hampered by hope that he could be resigned by the Tampa Ba y Bucs? Or could it be that teams are wondering if Derrick has one more year of productive football left in him? The Bucs can make a lot of things right by resigning Brooks to at l eas t a one-year contract. Upton, Crawford Becoming Dvmanic Duo ForRavs On the first two nights of last week's series at Rog e rs Centre, B .J. Upton and Carl Crawford combined for three home runs, two stolen bases and four runs scored. Tiger Woods, back from left knee construction, is working on a banner year for 2009. Woods has played in only nine events this year and already has won three times. He is still ranked as the #1 golfer in the world. Tiger h as 11.29 points. The number two has 8-47 points. Tiger h as won $4,560,163 in nine events. The second place player has won $3,892,241 in 16 events. Tiger is ranked #1 in Fed Ex Cup points with 2,051 points. The second place player has 1,876 in 16 events. Tiger has the best scoring average at 68.25. The second place player has 69.23 points. Tiger has finished in the top ten spots eight out of 9 events. Three players are second with seven top ten finishes in fourteen or more events. Two more victories and one major championship and Tiger Woods will be the 2009 Player Of The Year. Langoria Voted To All-Star Game Th e Tampa Bay Rays' third baseman, Evan Langoria was voted a starter for the American League for this yea r 's Baseball All-Star Game. Langoria, who played in the game last year, became the first Rays' pla yer to be voted to the starting lineup. Langoria, a second year player in the Major League is rapidly becoming one of the league's top third basemen. Though not starters, Carl Crawford, Jason Bartlet and Ben Zobrist will all rep resent the Rays in the All-Star Game. Carlos Pena could be the 5th Rays player in the game, if voters or fans vote him in as the last player on the team. Ron And Kobe Unite One of the highlights of last year's championship semifinal series was the physical battle between Ron Artest of the Houston Rockets and Kobe Bryant of the Los Angeles Lakers. Well, there will be no more of that. The two have become teammates. Free agent Artest bolted Houston to sign with Los Angeles. Artest recently said that if Kobe gets rough with him now, all he has to do is tell the coach. Shucks! So much for the good fight. Nat$1ly, the Tampa Bay Rays wori both games. "It's not easy to get those guys out," Rod Barajas said last Wednesday morning. In summation, Barajas cffered the following praise/lament: "Those two guys," he said, "a re just a nightmare." There is no more exciting pair of table-setters in the game today. Upton, 24, and Crawford, 27, are among the #1 and #2 hitters. Two athletes like that at the top of any lineup is uncommon. They are arguably the top two pure athletes in base ball. Upton, still recovering B. J. UPTON And CARL CRAWFORD from offseason shoulder surgery, was hitting .204 at the end of May. But Maddon stuck with the plan and was rewarded handsomely in June. The Rays went 19-7, Upton batted .324 with five home runs and the team surged back into the divisional and witd-card races. Tampa Bay had won seven straight before falling s-o to Toronto on Wednesday afternoon. _.::_,_::_:_, . _ . .. ,_ . __; ._:_i_ ... .. _._ o._._' __ ,:_ : : s _ : _ . s ... . _., _ N _ .. ,; ,iif,);'c .................. ........... . ., .. .. . . . .. . ........... :.:-.-.:-.... :..:.-:.>.>.< <.<:.<.:::: ..=.'.:-:-:.::. 888.57metro www.metropcs.com Bradenton 4919 14th St. West Bradenton.

DWYANEWADE The reigning NBA scoring champion, who can opt out of his Heat contract after the 2009-10 season, said Monday that simply getting to the playoffs "is not enough" to satisfy him.anymore, and that his long-term commitment to Miami hinges entirely on the franchise get ting back into the mix for the title trophy he hoisted just three years ago.

The New York Knicks were among Kidd's suitors. MIAMI--Dwyane Wade will remain in Miami on one condition. He wants the Heat With the contract, the 37year-old Kidd could end his career in Dallas, which is where he started in 1994.

(813) 253-0053-www.mpmiddleschool.net Police: McNair's Girlfriend Behind Murder-Suicide N..(\SHVILLE, Tenn. -confirmed Wednesday that ex-NFL star Steve McNair's 20-year-old girl friend killed him before turn ing tlie gun on herself. They said they may never knowwhat was going through Sahel Kazemi's mind when she shot MeN air in his con dominium early Saturday, but interviews with friends led detectives to conclude she was becoming increasingly dis traught over events in her life, including financial problems. Police said she also suspected MeN air was seeing another woman. Police earlier had labeled McNair's death a homicide, but awaited further tests and investigation before saying for sure what happened. At one point, Kazemi told an associate that her "personal life was all screwed up," Police Chief Ronal Serpas said. She had mounting debts and had been unable to sell her car. Her roommate was mov ing, which would have dou bled her rent. "We do know that she was clearly sending a message dur ing the last five to seven days of her life that things were going bad quickly," Serpas said, though there was no indication she told anyone she planned to harm McNair. Serpas said police believe McNair was asleep on a sofa when Kazemi shot him in the head. She then apparently shot him twice in the chest before shooting him again in the head and then shooting herself. McNair, a quarterback for the Tennessee Titans most of his career, was shot at a condo he rented with another man. The gun was found underneath Kazemi Kazemi's family told reporters that the woman was so confident McNair was divorcing his wife of 12 years that she was preparing to sell her furniture and move in STEVE MCNAIR with him. But associate Mike Mu, who has worked with McNair's charitable associa tion for years, said MeN air' s wife, Mechelle McNair, "didn t know who this girl is." No records of divorce proceedings have surfaced. Two days before the shoot ing, police stopped Kazemi driving the Escalade sport utility vehicle that MeN air gave her for her birthday in May. According to an arrest affi davit, Kazemi had bloodshot eyes and alcohol on her breath. She refused a breath test and told an officer "she was not drunk, she was high." She was charged with DUI. MeN air was with her but not charged. He later made her bail. A memorial service was set for Thursday night in Nashville, with the funeral Saturday in his native Mississippi. The four-time Pro Bowl quarterback was remembered Wednesday at the stadium where he played much of his career. The Tennessee Titans opened LP Field for fans to watch video highlights of McNair's i3-year NFL career and look at photos of the quarterback. There was also a book for them to write mes sages that will be given to the family.

Sports First-Round Pick Jennings savs He'll learn From YouTube Incident BRANDON JENNINGS MILWAUKEE --First-. round draft pick Brandon Jennings has yet to break a sweat in practice for the Milwaukee Bucks, and he's already doing a little backpedaling on defense. Speaking after the Bucks' pre-summer league practice Monday, Jennings expressed regret for drawing unwanted attention when his profanity-laced and provoca tive telephone conversation with a rapper was vide?taped and posted on YouTube last week. 'I'm pretty glad that it hap pened now, something that I can learn from," said Jennings, the No. 10 overall pick. "Now I know you can't trust everybody, everybody s not your friend. It was a joke. We were joking and everything. But for my part, I shouldn't be talking about team business that I have no idea about." In the video, which has since been removed from the site, rapper Joe Budden is shown talking to Jennings on a speakerphone. According to a partial transcript posted on sportingnews.com, Jennings insisted that guard Sessions would not return to the team, boasted that he will beat out Luke Ridnour to become the starting point guard and made a profane comment about the New York Knicks for not drafting him Celtics' Next Target Is ... Grant Hill GRANT HILL President of basketball operations Danny Ainge confirmed that Phoenix free agent Grant Hill is on the Celtics' wish list. "We have interest in him," said Ainge, who could offer Hill a $1.9 biannual-exception contract. Hill met with the Knicks, a team that could offer him considerably more than the Celtics. The Celtics offer Hill a chance to play for Rivers, his former coach in Orlando, and the chance to play on a championship contender.

President Obama Plan Could Trim Back Financial Powerhouses WASHINGTON-They are the biggest of the big -the Citigroups, the Goldman Sachses, the AIGs and other financial behemoths. The Obama administrirtion doesn't want so many around anymore. Financial regulations proposed by the president would result in leaner and simpler institutions that don't carry the weight of the system on their marble columns. Around Washington and Wall Street they have come to be known asTBTF-too big to fail. It's not just size, though. These companies are so farflung, so intertwined and so precariously leveraged that a single one's collapse can create systemwide tremors that imperil the finances of millions of Americans With that fear in mind, the government stepped in to bail out Citigroup Inc., Bank of America Corp. and American International Group Inc. (AIG) with tens of billions of public money last year. ... Looking to avoid such a cost ly intervention, President Barack Obama's regulatory plan calls for large, interconnected companies to pay a heavy price for the systemwide risk they pose. So far, however, congressional debate has centered on the administration's plan to put the Federal Reserve in charge of these "systemically signifi cant" companies. Less attention has focused on the potential effect on the institutions and the financial system's hierarchy. Obama Welcomes Progress On Health Care Overhaul PRES.

The government could use the money to help provide health coverage to millions who now lack it.

When the y tried to arrest him for disorderly conduct, Davis ran away, causing damage to a gate at the Florida Department of Interior Building, police said. The officers caught Davis, but could .. not identify him until one .. of his female friends came to the scene to tell police who he was. They arrested him and put him in the back seat of a police car. On the way to jail, the offi cers said Davis jumped out of the rear passenger window undetected and ran away again. On Monday, officers found the woman who originally i dentified Davis, and based on an interview, charged her with obstruction.

S ; Marshals tracked Davis to an address near North 24th ALFRED DAVIS Street. Davis ran again.

Both women also discovered they grew up in Ybor City, and Janet attended M iddfeton High School with Linda's sister. I set a personal goal to retire with a M aster' s degree so I coulq start my second career," said Linda. "That would allow me to either become an assistant principal or principal." Both women said as older adults, they decided this was the time to return to school to get their Master' s degrees. The l adies said f amily tragedies brought them together, and they interact so well together. As both sought their M aster's degre e s, they said it w as differ ent being a student instead of an instructor. "We found ourse lves being instructed to do the same things we tell our students," said Janet. "We had to listen and pay attention in class." Linda said the two of them have traveled a long road together, and on June 12th they both graduated with Master's degrees in Administration And Supervision. "When I got my Bachelor' s degree, I had it in my mind to go back to school, but I didn't' really get into it. Linda and I encouraged each other." Both ladies said they had some tough professors, and they couldn't have made it without LINDA MYERS AND JANET MYERS-SMILEY God' s help. "We taught class and went to class, and it worked for both of us, said Linda. Both ladies said they got a lot of encouragement and support from their families. "My husband was reluctant at first, but he got behind me when I went after my Master's degree," said Janet.

You can have a feast, you can grill, you can dance you can have a good time. When you do it, do it in the n a me of Jesus and let Him be glori fied! St. Mark Missionary Baptist Church 7221 S.

Other Super Spices are ginger, oregano, red peppers (including cayenne, crushed red pepper and pa prika), rosemary, thyme and yellow curry.

Q) 0 0 N 0 ..... Peek-A-Boo, Where Did All MV Files Go:-Recently, I came across a wonderful program called Folder Lock which encrypts and then hides all your files. Folder Lock costs $39 and is incredibly fast and can encrypt and hide all your data on the hard drive, CD or even USB drive Here is how the 256-bit AES encryption program works You decide which files or folders you want to hide from prying eyes. Folder Lock then places the files in secured lockers and asks you to decide upon a password. You can create as many folders as you like, there are no limitations on size either. The program pro vides various impressive options such as running the program in stealth mode In stealth mode Folder Lock will cleverly hide itself on your computer so no one will even know if it is installed through the control panel. A further option requires the owner of the locker to login with their true password before files can be safely deleted This means that no one else but the original owner can tamper with your precious files. You can also shred the original files once you have copied them to another location without leaving a trace behind. Folder Lock has become the most downloaded file encryption software and will only take a few minutes to encrypt and hide large data on your computer There are other great encryption programs on the market such as TrueCrypt which is free and fairly easy to use C TrueCrypt, like Folder lock, is AES-256 and will encrypt storage 0:: devices such as USBflash drives arid external hard drives as welL TrueCrypt not offer many of the same options .as z Folder Lock which meets the standards set by the Defense <( Department. c en w :::) .... w > w c w :X: en :J m :::) a. z i= w ...J ...J :::) m ...J w z i= z w en <( c 0:: 0 ...J u.
