HOLTON Sentinel City Editor Although Michael Hadley, owner of Sable One Investiga tion and Security Services, sub mitted the lowest bid for an Unarmed Security Guard Serv ices contract, his bid was denied The reason for the denial, city officials said, was because Hadley did not have the re quired experience or references to win the bid. However, Hadley was not sat isfied with the explanation and filed an appeal. Once again the appeal was denied. During the regular City Council meeting on Thursday, council members agreed with the decision and ap proved the bid award to another company. Chairman Thomas Scott and Councilwoman Gwen Miller voting against approving the contract that will be awarded to a Chicago company. Councilwoman Linda Saul-Sena questioned Hadley prior to the vote and he re sponded that the appeal was de nied based on his not having 5 years of experience and 3 refer ences. Hadley also said, "The bid clearly says or similar service. I have similar service." Greg'Spearman, Ptirchasing Director for the City of Tampa said, "He did have experience during Super Bowl XLIII, but he was unable to provide 5 years of experience or three references. MICHAEL HADLEY We met with Mr. Hadley prior to the appeal process and ex plained that to him." Councilman Charlie Miranda also stated that accord ing to records, Hadley did not have the required license to op erate a busin ess. Hadley dis puted that statement and Miranda responded that th e state's records could be out dated Councilman John Dingfelder said, "If w e tos sed out the bid, we do not hav e the au thority to award th e bid to any one The city would have to re-bid the contract Earlier in th e week Spearman and Greg K.

HOLTON Sentinel City Editor The loss of employment and rising cost of living has recently resulted in some homeowners not being able to pay their mmtgages. In an effort to offer assis tance, the City of Tampa will offer foreclosure counseling. Homeowners will be guided through and educated on the federal governrnent s recently launched "Making Home fordable (MHA). This program provides assistance through the Home Modification and Home able Refinance programs. The programs are designed to provide assistance to applicants by reducing mmtgage payments to a level the homeowner can af ford. These programs are pri marily geared toward loans being held by Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac. However, Ms. Sharon West, of the Housing and Community Development said, "These two agencies are mandated. But we are encouraging any homeowner in trouble to come in and talk with us. There are other bankers who will vol untarily work with us as welL "Any homeowner who is hav ing pt ; oblems making his or her mortgage payment now or if they feel they will in the future should come in for counseling. We will look at their budget and try to work with them and the lenders If they are unable to stay in their homes, we will try to assist the family relocate," Ms. West said. is being offer both in English and in Spanish at the Housing and Community De velopment, 2105 N.

On Wednesday, Leslie was found shot to death in hi s own bed Hill sborough County Sheriffs deputie s report that around 2 a,.m de p uties went to 6922 C ircle after a woman calle d Sheriffs Office spokesman J. D. Callaway sa'id deputies found one of s e veral people liv ing in the home dead in a bedroom. Callaway also said it's not clear how many people were home during the shooting. Detectives are questioning the remaining people. Callaway said so far, the in vestigation has reveaied that a woman inside the home called and reported hearing shots coming from inside. '"Right now, we're trying to determine if there was a break in and a motive for the shooting Several shots were fired at Leslie and no suspect informa tion is available at this time Leslie's cousin, Nichelle Watson, said she personally believes the whole thing was a set up ''There are too many different stories going around. I also noticed that Dontae had been acting paranoid lately. It was like someone was after him. That's. why I don' t understand why the door to the house .where he was staying wasn't locked. That's strange. Watson said Dontae was living with a white family at the home on Baldwin Circle DONfAE LESLIE He wasn t related to anyone in that house. He just decid e d to leave his mother' s house and move in with this family. I don't even know how he knew these people." "There was a lot of foot traffic going on at the house just be fore this h a ppened." In describing her cousin, Watson said he had a street reputation, and no one messed with him. He was very protective of his family." "We were together at Club Empire celebrating his birth day. I told him I was going to join the Army, and later. be come a police officer. He didn't like that, and teased me about it But, we had a great time." Leslie has three brothers, and his father, !karl, lives in Jamaica. Leslie's mother Mrs. Ruby Washington, had no insurance on Dontae, and the family is getting together to decide what to do as far as funeral arrangements are concerned.

Congratulations; Earl len nard Governor Chariie Crist has made another good decision by tapping former Hillsborough Schools superintendent Earl Lennard to replace the late Phyllis Busansky to become Hillsborough County's new Supervisor of Elections. Governor Crist calls Lennard a "known quantity," a man. who "has served the citizens of Hillsborough Comity very well," and who"is the kind of man the people will have confidence: in." Indeed, Lennard's record as former school superintendent was highlighted by the fact the local school system moved from the 13th largest to the 9th largest school system in America. In the midst of such unprecedented growth stood Earl Lennard whose leadership saw the construction of more than 6o new facilities and the improvement of student performance with the controversial Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test. Congratulations, new Supervisor of Elections Earl Lennard. -P olice have always inves tigated residential bur glaries. In most instances, the homes are seeped out and broken into when the occupants are away for a period of time. But in recent years, the practice of intentionally breaking into a dwelling when the occupants were home began happening more and more frequently. As a result, the term "Home Invasion" was coined to dis tinguish this type of burgla1y from others. In the beginning, police felt that those targeted were us ually involved in some type of illegal activity, such as drugs. However, as time passed, others such as the elderly, the affluent, and those living alone have become victims. Home Invasions have near ly rea ch epidemic proportions in some community As a result of this, no one is' real ly safe --if that person is thought to keep money or valuables inside their hoines. In many instances, i-esidents have been or seriously injured. In cases, the residents have died.

However, consider, if any one should be paid, should it be? Who should be reql.,lired to make the payments? To whom should paymen' ts be directly made? And in what forms should they be paid? These are four questions sup porters and opponents of the reparations issue will have to wrestle with Those who sup port reparations argue that if slaves had been paid for their labor and were allowed to secure and own property, Black wealth would be signif icant today. Furthermore, descendants of freed Blacks whci wet' e of the funds pajd h) them during Reconstruction should be compensated Neverthe. less, many citi zens, Black or wh1i t e ; 'don't support reparations they believe that toda y 's gov ernments of Spain, Englarid, France, Spain etc. a re differ ent or were nonexistent dur ing the ti m e period in ques'7 tion Others 'believe that most taxpayers living today shouldn't be burdened by the acts of their ancestors, many of whom never owned slaves Still others believe America cannot afford the cost of reparations. In addition, not every Black person living in America is a descendant of slave s.

Not once, but twice was the funding cut. Schools and school districts were forced to scramble and to do funny things to the educational process to make up for the cuts. While most district schools barely survived these cuts, many of our charter schools were not able to survive. In their effort to survive their educational fund shortage, school district administrators had to take steps that they never dreamed would come to pass. Every school district in the State of Florida experienced one or more of the following cost cutting efforts that were so necessary. Some districts closed down some of its schools. in order to save money. Some cu.t much of the transportation of students in to save money. Educational field trips were I 've recently heard of residents in the Progress Village and Clair-1\:iel communities living in fear of their lives and the lives of their children. This fear is being brought on by a so-called gang that has terrorized both communi ties, attacked other teenagers, and fired weapons into the air to instill fear and control. This so-called gang is called the "Problem Boys," and the Hillsborough County Sheriffs Office is aware of their presence. However, no arrests have been made, and residents are fmstrated that they are allowed to continue their activities: To the residents of both communities, you must understand that these groups have no power unlessyou give it to them. They gain power through fear. When you start locking your doors, reduced to a minimum due to the lack of money. Only absolutely necessary supplies and equipment were purchased. Teachers were asked to take days off without pay. Many administrators. wer.e:. demoted to teaching duties in the classrooms. The cost cutting efforts didn't stop there.

Some parents have tried approaching the parents of these ga ng members, pleading for their intervention.

::II Local o Communitv Activist Concerned About Countv Lavons 2 GERALD WHITE Community activist, Gerald White, said he's concerned about the proposed layoffs and service cuts in Hillsborough County government. ''I'm hoping the African American community will not be adversely impacted by the proposed budget cuts, with a large number of Black employ ees being disproportionately laid off. "As an experienced activist, I am working diligently to review the county budget and to offer beneficial suggestions and constructive ways to save money I am also committed to working as hard as I can as an activist to save as many jobs and county services as possi ble White said with a $3.8 bil lion dollar budget, the people must remain involved in gov ernment. "I addressed the Board of County Commissionerson June 17th and requested they postpone as many road projects as possible to save $150 million dollars. The money is already in the bank for these projects, sitting there waiting for directions. "I also spoke with George Williams, Director of Human Resources, and the county is not releasing any information on the race and gender of those who will be laid off. "To avoid layoff and budget cut disparities, in the areas of race and gender, I believe the public should be apprised of and have benefit of that infor mation before the final vote on the county budget."

Sports Bucs Soliditv Quanerbacksll The Tampa Bay Buccaneers recently cut quarterback Brian Griese. Does that mean that the Bucs have solid ified their quarterback positions? The Griese move leave s the Bucs with four sig nal callers. Three will be given roster spots and one would be assigned to the practice squad. Byron Leftwich, Luke McKown and Josh Freeman would be the roster quarterbacks while Josh Johnson will once again be assigned to the practice squad. This I predict barring any unfor esee n injuries or trades Serena On Dating People Tennis star Serena Williams says that currently she isn't dating anyone. The world's #2 ranked tennis player says she is crazy. Serena says she is so crazy that she would not want to date her self. She said she is currently traveling solo. Serena is one of the most eligible dates on the planet. She is pretty, well built, rich, articulate and famous. And guys, Serena ain't going to take no mess. She is Richard Williams' daughter. Free Agency Like Never Before Unless something happens between now and next year's free agency period, it will be a free agency period like never before in the history of the NBA figures will be thrown around. The Cleveland Cavaliers' LeBron James, the Miami Heat's Dwyane Wade, and Toronto Raptors Chris Bosh will be on the free agency market. All you really need is Los Angeles Lakers' Kobe Bryant and Orlando Magic's Chris Howard and the bidcling war would be bigg.er than anything on Wall Street. These five players are the most coveted player s in the lea g ue. Although LeBron, Dwyane and Bosh will be on the market, of course their respective teams will be trying to sign them, too. It will be interesting to see where these players play after next year. American League Wins All-Star Game The Major League Baseball All Star Game \vas won 4-3 by the American League All Stars.

LOUIS --President Barack Obama was true to his word: He didn't bounce the ceremonial first pitch at the Major League Baseball AllStar game on Tuesday. But it barely reached the plate; st: Louis Cardinals star Albert Pujols helped the moving up on the plate and reaching out to scoop the toss. Obama had warmed up on the White House grounds on Monday, and was determined his pitch would reach the plate on a fly. "Here they at least had me down in the batting cage prac ticing with Pujols," Obaina said, referring to his first cere monial pitch before during the 2005 American League Championship Series. He also warmed up at the White House on Monday in the Rose Garden. Wearing a Chic a go White Sox jacket, jeans and sneakers, and cheered by the se1lout c rowd at Busch Stadium, Obama walked out of the National League's dugout on the first base side; shook hands with Cardinals Hall of Farner Stan Musial and trotted to the mound. From right on the rubber, 6o feet and 6 inches (18.44 meters) away, Obama wound up and bit his lip as he let go. The left-bander grimaced slightly, and gave a fist pump when Pujols -a first base man made the neat grab. Obama became the latest Chicago basketball player to try his hand at baseball. Like Michael Jordan, the president looked more natural in his other job. "I scooted up a little bit, but I think I was going to catch it in tl\e air the w}\ole way," Pujols said. '"I was more nervous not to drop the ball, believe me. I wasn't worried about him the ball." Obama's motorcade left the ballpark in the bottom of the fourth inning, and the AL eventually won 4-3 for its sev enth straight victory. He was due back at the White House shortly after midnight local time.

So, I guess you've got to deal with it when I get there Called And Anointed To Serve (J od has sp a red your lif e and has sustained y ou for a reason and a pur pose. You are here and alive today because God has a plan for your life, and your life fits into His plan to save and bless humanity. The calling and anointing of Aaron in this week's lesson from Leviticus 8:1-13 is proof of the grace and mercy of God and His willingness to look beyond your faults and still use you for His greater good. Aaron was the same man who allowed the people to build a golden calf to worship from Exodus 32. The build ing and worshipping of any image was strictly forbidden by God and was a direct violation of the Ten Commandments. In spite of his actions God still called Aaron and his sons to become high priest for the Children of Israel. God chose Aaron for this position. It was not a selection for the people, God did not consult them, nor was Aaron asked if he would like to do it. coming together could be v a r ied and many. One of the things that a public anointing does, is let people know that you have been set aside and appointed for a specific purpose for God. This public anointing of min istry prevents one from work ing and serving in secret. It also makes you easily identifi able and makes you account able and responsible for your public actions. And Moses brought Aaron and his sons, and washed them with water (vs. 6). God takes those who He is setting aside and gives them a bath God washes and cleans es you of your uncleanliness. One of the things to be noted in God's order is when the washing takes place. Many people miss the opportunity to serve God because they think that the washing and cleansing must take place first. Notice that God called Aaron, commissioned him, Keyrwte Spealcer: prepared him to be anointed, and then washed him. Many people think that that they have to be clean and per fect in order to be used and set aside by God. Because of this many people resist answering God's call because they feel they are in some way or form dirty After Aaron and his son s were washed, Moses was then instructed by God to cloth e the m (vv. 7-9). As priest they were given certain clothes to wear that would set them aside from everyone else. I In modern times today it is often difficult to tell the dif ference between priest, pastors, and the congregation Beyond clothing, the priestly leader must be dressed in good character and holiness When Paul described the attire for those God, it was not about physical mater ial, but rather spiritual ele ments. Nonetheless as individuals serving God and called according to His purpose, you must not look for man to validate your calling. Man can only witness to your anoint ing and ordination process. You must not continue to allow your past actions and fault hinder you from answer ing God's call in your life. He will wash you, cleanse you, and dress you for the service He is calling you to. When God calls you for a purpose, He does not have to consult with other people nor does He need anyone to approve of what He does. Your calling is is something that is between you and God. While the calling was done by God and God alone, He made the anointing and the setting aside public. God instructed Moses to gather together all the congregation (vs. 3).

I wonder what we can do to help these students? I feel they wanted knowledge, but no one has been successful in giving it to them outside of the detention setting." Rep. Reed said one young man wanted to know how much she was paid as a State Representative. "He was shocked when I told him. Many of them think certain jobs pay a lot of money because of the title you have." Rep. Reed said she told the students she would be returning, and she'd like to come every quarter. "I wish I could go every month. I was just shocked that so many young men who should be in 18131 248 school were there. I told them when I returned, I didn't want to see the same faces. "I think it would help them tremendously if they were put in an environment that promotes them learning. I saw only 7 or 8 girls, and they all had angry looks on their faces." Rep. Reed said what surprised her the most was how many kids she saw in the facility. She said it made her want to reach out to them so she could find out what went wrong in their lives. "I also think as adults, we don't listen to them when they are asking for help. I know there's something going on in their life that needs to change. "At some point, I'd like to talk to their parents, but first their children need to calm down, and understand that there is a better life for them and that someone does care about what happens to them."

The United States Preventive Services Task Force has put together the fol lowing recommendations to keep seniors healthy, happy, and safe. These are simpld medical tests that can be done or ordered when you visit your regular doctor. Your doctor may recommend additional tests based on your personal health profile. PART II Protecting Your Eyes. Eye diseases, such as macular degeneration and glaucoma, are common with age. Your eyes should be checked every one to two years after the age of 65. Screening can preserve and maximize your vision. Go more often if you have vision problems. Hearing Test. At least 30% of people over 6o have some hearing loss, most of which is treatable. Get a hearing test at least once every three years. *Protect Your Bones. Osteoporosis is no joke. If you have it and you suffer a frac ture especially of the hip you've significantly increased your risk of permanent dis ability or death. Get serious and ask your doctor to refer you for a bone density Women should have a bone density test at age 65. If a woman is at a higher risk, a screening test should be done at age 60 Cholesterol Screening. High cholesterol levels are a major reason why people have heart attacks and strokes. The good news, though, is that high choles terol levels can be treated by diet and medications. That is why measuring your levels of total cholesterol and HDL cholesterol (good cholesterol) is important to do regularly Vaccinations. People over 65 should get a pneumococcal vaccine to protect against pneumonia. Anyone over 50 should get a yearly flu shot. A tetanus booster is recommended every Medical Tests for Your tion: 01 Tampa,. FL Nall Deformities Corn & Calluses Sports Medicine NEW Medi-Pedic:ure Bunions Available PAULL. SHEEHY, JR., D.P.M. P.A. 6os and Up. Also important, but not endorsed by the U.S Preventative Services Task Force are the following tests : Blood Sugar. Diabetes is a potentially life-threatening condition, but it doesn t have to be. The American Diabetes Association recommends that a fasting blood sugar test be done at least once every three years, so you can catch dia betes early and manage it. Thyroid Hormone Test. Thyroid problems are easily missed. That's why screening at least once every five years is important, especially for women, according to the American Thyroid Association. Your thyroid, that innocuous-looking gland in your neck is the body's powproducing hormones needed for metabolism. Problems with the thyroid can cause hair loss, weight gain or weight loss, fatigue, and depression. Looking for Moles. Remember this: Although the majority of your sun exposure occurred before age 18, skin cancers can take 20 years or more to develop. Luckily, most skin cancers are curable. The American Cancer Society recommends regular screening. So don't forget to ask your doctor to check your skin for unusual moles or skin changes once a year. Dental Exam. Gum disease can be an important indicator of your overall health. Your teeth, gums, mouth, and throat need to be regularly examined by a dentist. Regular brushing with fluoride toothpaste and flossing is so important if you want to keep your pearly whites gleaming Don't forget that taking care of your health extends beyond visiting your doctor's office. The Task force recommends that you do the right thing not only for your health, but for others as well by: Medical screening tests are gifts that keep on giving you'll enjoy better health and you may add years to your life. So make a note to sched ule a visit to your dentist and call your doctor each year around your birthday.

Health News c Feng Shui ED ROOM Feng Shui F eng Shui -the ancient Chinese practice of placement and arrangement of space is used to achieve harmony with the environment. Just like an acupuncturist balances the chi (life force, energy) in the body, the Feng Shui practitioner balances the flow of chi in the home and work envi ronment. FengShui & The Bedroom Generally speaking, we spend the most amount of time in the bedroom --prob ably a third of your life. For the couple, the bedroom is the no compromise area the no sacrifice zone. Choose colors, furniture, bedding, art, flooring and all objects that you both like. Avoid intense vibrant colors, as they are not calming. Keep design choices simple, serene and sensual. Avoid many pat terns, since that is not harmonious for restful sleep. Generally speaking, three or four colors blended together make a great palate. Choose art you love and that is aligned with the room's i purpose. Nature scenes are wonderful. Intense art or art of suffering events should be avoided Keep the feeling light and easx. What you see first as you enter the room sets the tone. Place fresh flowers so you can see them as yo11 enter. Touches of red can be helpful for enhanced passion. Pink touches can soften the energy for the spirit of uncon ditional love. Green can also symbolize the heart charka, a loving energy. Live plans or excellent quality silk plans keep energy a live, setting the tone for growth in life and relationships. Keep work related objects and exercise equipment out of the bedroom ( so your mind won't wander to outside dead line or projects). Generally speaking, the bed position should be furthest from the door to allow the widest view of the room while seeing the door yet not in direct alignment with the door (mouth of chi). The higher quality bed you can afford is best. The headboard is a symbol of support in life. A solid, real wood headboard is at the top of the list. Vitamin E H ere are some of the many protective activ ities of Vitamin E and its components: Taking Vitamin E may reduce the risk of Type 2 dia betes. Vitamin E supplements appear to prevent metastasis of prostrate cancer Vitamin E compounds Gamma tocopherol and alpha tocopherol along with seleni um, help reduce the risk of prostrate cancer. Supplementation with Vitamin E and C may have a protective effect again stroke. Vitamin compound Tocotrienols reduce the effects of aging, including lowering cholesterol, prevent ing platelet adhesion and sup pressing tumor cell growth. Tocotrienols 11,1ay inhibit estrogen-dependent and independent breast cancer cell growth and stabilize cellular homeostasis in vitro. Tocotrienols also appear to slow growth of blood vessels to tumors ( a process known as anti-angiogenesis). Alpha tocotrienol helps pre vent damage to the brain and nerves. Tocopherol and beta carotene levels are lower in people with rheumatoid arthritis and systemic lupus erythematosus Gamma tocotrienol is required for Vitamin D metabolism in animals. Gamma tocotrienol is more protective against colon can cer than alpha tocopherol. To get the greatest benefits from Vitamin E, choose a sup plement that contains at least 200 IU of mixed tocopherols (oil form) and 200 IU of mixed tocotrienols. There is a distinctive different between natural and synthetic Vitamin E. Natural Vitamin E, labeled d-alpha tocopherol, has greater bio logical activity than synthetic Vitamin E, which is labeled dl-alpha tocopherol. Neck Pain I f you have a stiff neck or having pain that prevents you from turning your head, you are not alone. The sedentary lifestyles that we have put us at risk for neck pain. For example, the added weight of having a beer gut is tough on your n eck, along with not wearing well cushioned shoes often enough, including sneakers. An easy office fix you might trv is moving your computer m-onitor level with your head rather than craning your neck downward to view your screen For natural joint relief, try these exercises: inhale and as you exhale, turn your head to look over one shoulder. Inhale as you move your head back to center. Repeat on the other side and do four (4) reps on each side. lllllllililiiliiii Optimal Health Care for the Family STEPHEN A. WILUAMS, M.D., P.A.

I,, ___;,_ __ :.___ _______________ ....;..__ __ ---, Michael Jackson's Kids Could Be Performers, Joe Jackson savs JOE JACKSON Joe Jackson famously launched his sons, the Jackson 5, into superstar dam, laying the groundwork for Michael Jackson's legendary career._ And, in a "Good Morning America" interview last Friday (July 10), the family patriarch seemed to think Michael's children have bright futures in entertainment. PARIS AND PRINCE MICHAEL JACKSON "I don't know -I keep watching Paris," he said, referring to Jackson's mid dle child, who spoke memo rably at her father's memorial on Tuesday. "She ... wants to do something. And as far as I can see, well, they say Blanket [Michael's youngest child, Prince Michael II], he can really dance." Debbie Rowe Drops custodv Fight DEBBIE ROWE And MICHAEL JACKSON During Happier Times Micbael.Jackson's baby mama Debbie Rowe has sold her kids again -this time squeezing about $4 mil.;. lion from her former mother in-law in exchange for giving up her parental rights, a fam ily source told The Post. "It's one final payday," the disgusted Jackson confidant said The family isn't happy about the mega-payout which was set to be sealed in Los Angeles yesterday after noon -but they consider it a necessary evil, the source said. "They felt it was like a ransom-type thing. [Rowt:l jumped back into the picture because she wanted money," the friend said. Rowe -a former dental assistant who bore a boy and girl for Jackson-had forfeited her parental rights once before in exchange for big bucks. After the birth of son Prince Michael, now 12, and daughter Paris, 11, she agreed to allow Jackson to raise them in exchange for a lump sum of $8 million, plus $900,000 annually for five years, the source said. When Jackson was accused of child molestation in 2001,. Rowe resurfaced to reclaim her rights. But she wound up giving her ex-hus band full custody of the kids anyway -in exchange for another $4 million plus a $900,000 home. . This time around, she is for feiting her restored parental rights to Jackson's mom, Katherine, in exchange for yet another roughly $4 mil lion, the family source said. !f l&l's'JiCksen FllniiV Realitv Show I Thriller LOS ANGELES --A&E is working on a reality project with the Jackson family which could gain .newfound viewer interest in the wake of the King of Pop's death. The network commissioned a'One-hour special following Jackie, Tito, Jernfilirt'l!';""' Marlon and Randy that was originally intended to serve as a "backdoor pilot" for a potential series. The project was commissioned months ago and producers have fin ished shooting footage that followed Jackson family members as they readied a new album and reunion tour. A&E planned to air the result as a special, tentatively titled "The Jackson Family," next year, taking a "wait and see" approach and gauging viewer reaction before decid ing whether to order the pro ject as a series. After Michael's unexpect ed death last month and sub sequent intensive coverage, the question for A&E becomes: What now? Michael's Concert Merchandise Still For Sale LOS ANGELES Michael Jackson's comeback concerts will never happen, but you can still get the T -shirt. Merchandise from Jackson's "This Is It" tour, which was scheduled to begin Monday in London, will be available online and at retailers across the United States. Jackson helped design the concert T-shirts and other show souvenirs, said Peter LoFrumento, a spokesman for the merchan dising company, Bravado. "Michael was very adamant about not just doing T -shirts and posters and key chains," he said. "He wanted to do something special and make it really innovative and different, things that were functional and fun and that his fans would like." Among the items for sale: T -shirts commemorating the first and second nights of the concerts at London's 02 arena, belt buckles, caps, sunglasses and mugs. A var sity jacket modeled after the one Jackson wore in the "Thriller" video will also be available. Michael Jackson's Estate Open For Business LOS ANGELES--Two weeks after Michael Jackson's death, adminis trators of his estate are tem porarily authorized to reopen for business and negotiate, among other things, agree ments relating to the singer's ill-fated "This Is It" concert tour. While fans in London on Monday lit candles and placed flowers outside the 02 Arena where the entertainer was due to begin his run of 50 concerts, lawyers were in a Los Angeles Superior Court ironing out details of the powers given to two men named by Jackson to administer his estate. Superior Court Judge Mitchell Beckloff conferred wid.e-ranging authority on attorney John Branca and recording executive John McClain, at least until Aug. 3 when another hearing is scheduled. The list of powers for the Lawyer John Branca, right, co-executor of Michael .Jackson's estate, and lawyer Howard Weitzman. administrators includes taking control of all of Jackson's physical assets and placing them in secure storage facilities; hiring people with expertise in handling various aspects of the estate with fees subject to court approval; and handling tax matters. i .:< c. c: r( -:..a 6 2J tn m z m ....

Instead, they got a set from Lupe Fiasco an:d a brief one from other tour opener Fabolous.
