CREWS Sentinel StaffWriter Sharon Shaw is the legal guardian for her 8-year-old nephew. Since she has to work, she decided to enroll him into the summer program at Cyrus Greene Park. This was the first year he had attended the program This past Friday, July 31st, Ms. Shaw arrived a Cyrus Greene Park at 6:03 p.m. to pick her nephew up. However, .when she arrived, the doors to the building werd locked, the lights were off, and she couldn't find any park staff or her nephew. I asked a woman in the parking lot if she knew where the staff and kids were, and she said everyone was gone, and that the last two male staff had left together in a car onl y a few minutes ago t}:le woman said she was in the park to watch her son play baseball." Ms. Shaw said she told the woman she was looking for her nephew, arrd she was unaware of where he was. Her daughter spoke up and said she knew who I was talk ing about and ran across the park ground. That's when I saw a man sitting on a bench watching my nephew and another boy playing alone My nephew told me the coach told the kids to go over to the playground and play The women in the parking lot told me there had been a fire in the computer room ; earlier that day, and she was upset the staff didn't call to notify her since her daughter and little son attend the same park. Ms. Shaw said her nephew told her all the kids had to stay outside all day in the park due to the smoke from the fire. "I have temporary guardianship of my nephew while his mother is in the service I initially hesitated to call police due to the recent publicity with the little girl drowning in the pool. "Overall, my nephew enjoys going to the park and the staff a re wonderful." Ms. Shaw said initially, she had planried to notify the staff on Monday, but received a voice message last Saturday tha t the park will be closed until Tuesda y due to the fire I was losing sleep, men tall y revisiting the view of the park and see ing tha t man sit ting watching the bo ys knowing what could have happened. On Sunday, I filed a report with police in hopes this doesn t happen to another child. What I want to see come out of all this is an apology to myself and my nephew." Tampa Police Department spokeswoman, Andrea Davis, verified that Ms. Shaw spoke to Officer Cole in the District III Office, and an information report was taken and is being investigat ed. City of Tampa Parks and Recreation Director, Karen Palus, released this statement: "According to on site staff, at 2:30 p.m. Friday, a transformer blew up and caused a power outage. The children were safely escorted out of the building, and resumed activities outside on the playground and basketball . liiz+' SAI/r \!JOUR HOME OFTAMPA, INC. "r.

The staff was instructed by a supervisor to call all the parents to notify them of what had happened and to ask if they wanted to pick their childrim up early. Many of the parents did just that. The staff also made contingency plans for Monday's program if the power was unable to be restored. Plans were provided. parents to allQw partiCipants progra1n options at several of our other East Tampa locations. Asfar as Ms. Shaw's nephew is concerned, football practice was scheduled for the early evening at Cyrus Greene and many of the children left the summer program to head over for practice. Ms. Shaw's nephew went with one of his friends across the park to watch him practice football. In the excitement of the afternoon, the staff did not check their participant records to verify that the child was authorized to go to football practice. The boy never left the park property and coaches from the football team were with the children, so there was adult supervision on site. That being said, please know that we have taken appropriate action to correct the situation and to ensure no child is released to football or any other activity without prior written parental permission. I personally called Ms. Shaw to speak with h(!r directly. As of Tuesday, August 4th, I have not received a return call, nor has she made contact with any of our staff at Cyrus Greene to discuss Friday's problem. I look forward to talking with her soon." Ms.Bhaw said she will talk to Palus, and again to her nephew "I was not aware of anything concerning a football practice going on or coaches watching the kids on the play gro\}nd.

America is closer to undoing what it never should have done, in the first place -sending boxer Jack Johnson to prison for socializing with the woman he loved, who happened to be white. In case some of you don't know who Jack Johnson was, he was America's first Black heavyweight champion. Johnson liked to "live large" and was tall, dark, handsome and rich, thus becoming a magnet for women. Of course, you know this type of behavior from a Black man during the days of Jim Crow earned Johnson a walking death-warrant. Johnson was arrested, found guilty and sent to prison for transporting a white woman across stat"e lines. Apparently, Johnson and the woman had had a longterm romantic relatiopship, and had the woman been Black, would not have become a target for law enforcement. Now that Congress has passed the all of America, especially Black America is waiting for President Barack Obama to sign a posthumous pardon, absolving Johnson of the criminal offense. Such a pardon is long overdue and welcomed, and will serve as another nail in American racism's coffin. Technolouv: To Think About. H ere's something for you think about., Ev.eryday, we see instances of citizens who are glibly told how they can access this is the age of technology. No, every family cannot afford the expense of a computer and the monthly cost of Internet service. So; tel.ing many people to online" is the same as saying "sWim the English Cllal)nel without an inner-tube." . Now, many citizens Will be to service from their homes with the proposed closing of at least 13 Tampa Bay post-office locations, _including the West Tampa Office. Were you aware? Many of you will point to free use of library computers. Well, consider that library hours are being reduced, and if you're lucky, when you get to the library, you, may only have to wait ail h()ur or t\vo to use such computers. .Furthermore, library, patrons are limited. to one hour of free computer use, especially during peak hours of use. . Where are we going with all of this? Well, we propose: the expansion of free computer access similar to the. services provided by our public libraries. Perhaps interested churches could be certified as Internet kiosks, open to residents of surrounding neighbor-. hoods. We. believe the time has come to make Internet technology truly accessible for all of our citizens. That is the only way service downsizing will work. -.-.. ...... .. :. ............. .::; "The Voice of Our Corn1nunity Speaking for Itself' One For The Record It seems that just when you think you've heard everything, something else happens. And this is one for the record. Last week, a Manatee County man was arrested and charged with impersonating a police officer. Apparently, he used _emergency lights to clear traffic out of his way. As the story goes, an off duty deputy was driving down the interstate when he noticed the lights activated behind him. As the vehicle passed him, he also noticed that the vehicle was a BMW. The BMW didn't have any police markings to indicate that it did belong to law enforcement. Being a conscientious human being, the deputy wrote down the license plate number. Apparently something about that black BMW just didn' t sit right with the deputy. Or, perhaps he didn't like the idea of having to break his speed and yield the right of way But, whatever the reason the deputy, felt compelled to check it out. And, he wasn't wrong, either. His instincts were right on the money. The computer check revealed that the BMW belonged to a pri vate citizen and was not the property of any law enforcement agency. This translates into a litany of questions. First of all, the car should not have been equipped with police lights. You can't help but wonder ., how the man obtained lights that were so "official looking" that it drew the attention of an off duty deputy We often hear of stories where men posing as poli ce officers have stopped women traveling alone. In some cases, the women were raped and in some cases, those who resisted have been murdered. The second thing that comes to mind is what else has he done under the authority of the lights? There is a real' possibility that people have been stopped by this will start. to come forW-ard::: B .ut, .H is a fact that this mari.l.s'ih a .. lot of trouble judges don't look kindly on someone pretending to be the police.

Education Begins At Home The education of a chi l d b eg ins long befor e h e or s h e e n ters a school. It be gins at birth and at home. The teachers a r e the parents. Parents have a big role in their child's education. Paren t s beg in the ed u catio n a l p r ocess by t alk in g to t h e ir children o n a re g ul a r b a sis. The conversations should always be in plain English and not the goobly-glob par ents usually use when talking to young children The conversations with children should continue throughout the child's school years. The parent(s) must also begin the discipline process very early in the child's life. They have to first of all set positive goals and be a positive role model for their children. As soon as the child is able to understand and comprehend things, they must know that there are punishments for negative behaviors and rewards for positive behavior. That is what discipline is all about. Parents should know that discipline must be firm, fair and consistent. Children shouid be exposed to educational materials at a .. D a television broadcast recently, P }esiderit Barack obama sa1d more than 10 rriillions Americans were u hemployed. That's a very scary number The weary economy has caused more Americans to join the league of the homeless as they've lost their homes as well as their jobs. So, where do the homeless go? When th ey tried to occu p y an a r ea in do w ntown St P e t e r s burg the y wer e run off Wh e n it was prop ose d a p a r c e l o f l a nd in E a st T a mp a be u se d a s a homeless camp, re sidents said no way No matter where someone looks to establish a place for the homeless, society votes to have them turned away. Many of us are a paycheck or two away from being homeless We're also so arrovery ea rly age Books, educa tio nal t.v. programs, penci ls, p a per, crayons and plenty of encouragement and praise for goo d efforts. Between the time the child is born and the time the c h i l d starts sc h oo l parents s h o uld c on centra t e o n dis c ipline and developing an interest in education. Once the child starts school, parents have to really get involved in their child's education. Start by going to your child' s school during the first week. Meet the principal and the teacher(s). Make a commitment to work with the school to help with your child's education. Parents need to ask their children regularly about their school day. How they are doing, are they enjoying school, what did they learn and if they have any homework? In addition, parents need to set aside some time for children to study, to ready, to do homework or to do something educational. During this time, there should be no interruptions no television, no phone conversations and no socializ ing. gant and selfish, we look down on people less fortunate than the rest of us : We aren't willing to use compassion an'd understanding when it comes to the plight of the homeless. Residents say homeless peopie bring property crimes and other lawless acts into their neighborhoods, and they don't warit tha t From that perspectiv e r I understand their concern.., But there are ways to provid e a place for the homeless and protect your property as w ell. Let's not be nai v e, however Some homeless people are c r iminals and are homeless due to substance abuse or other issues. But the majority are homeless because they don't have the money to pay for a place to call home. I think it is the responsibili ty of all government officials Pare n ts m ust make every effort to send the schools a disciplined student who i s r eady t o l earn The teacher's job is to educate the children. If the parents do their job, disciplining the student, then t h e teachers will have m ore time to d o the i r job without wast i ng a l arge p a r t of cla ssroom time t r ying to instill discipline Parents need to communi cate with teachers on a regu-lar basis. They need to attend conferences, PTA meetings, school func tions, especially if your child is participating. And don't believe everything your child tells you about the teacher or the school. It's up to you as the parent to find out for yourself. Parents are a key figure in their child's educational success. You have to do these things, year-after-year, and as long as your child is in school. Children have a great responsibility and this sometimes requires sacrifices on the parent's part. In the end, your child will be all the better because you were involved. to find a place for the home less. I often pass large warehouses' and other buildings that would :serve as shelters if governed properly. Being homeless is a thing for a lot of people, and many swallow their pride by panhandling or collecting alu minum cans just to eat every day I want to call out our area churches and organizations to put their heads together and find these people somewhere to go Create tasks for them so they can e a rn their keep. That wa y you both benefit, and it will cost you very little if nothing at all All homeless people aren t dirty disgusting bums.

Local Advisorv Group, Citv Council Approve HonkV Tonk Propenv Purchase East Tampa Development Manager, Ed Johnson, went before the City Council last Thursday. He asked them to endorse the use of Tax Increment Finance (TIF) dol lars for the purchase of property on the corner of 34th Street and Chelsea, popularly known as The Honky Tonk. After Johnson made his presentation, it was brought to the attention of the Council that the Community Advisory Committee hadn't been included in discussion about the purchase of the property Johnson, seeking a closing date with the owner of August 4th, was put back when Council members decided that the CAC must discuss and approve or disapprove the purchase before they would take any action On Tuesday, the CAC had a meeting, and in a 4-3 vote, decided to endorse the purchase of the property. The dis senting votes were from East Tampa Community Revitalization Partnership Chairperson, Evangeline Best, Vice-Chairman, Leerone Benjamin, and Committee Chairperson, Dr. Maxine Woodside. "We had a good discussion and in the end, the CAC decid ed to vote in favor of the pur chase," said Ms. Best. Ms. Best said the Rainbow Heights group thinks they will get either a community center or playground put on the site, but that's not the way it works. "The city can consider putting either of those things on the property, but nothing is guaranteed. I tried to make tli e m 'und_r starid tha fby vot' -ing in favor of the purchase doesn't mean they will get what they want."

It is one of the largest and most established family cord blood banks. In addition to the company's success as a private family cord blood bank, it became the world's first and only proprietary ser vice that empowers women to collect and store their own menstrual blood. The benefits of stem cells derived from menstrual blood were first indicated in a study by Cryo-Cell published in Cell Transplantation in April 2008. The study demonstrated that menstrual stem cells are stro mal stem cells, meaning they have the capability to differen tiate into important cells such as bone, cartilage, fat, nerve, and cardiogenic cells. The company continues to make significant progress.in advancing collaborative research partnerships to potentially develop a broad range of regenerative therapeutic applications utilizing Cryo Cell's stromal menstrual stem cell in technology.

Gun Scare Puts Courlhouse on Loclldown At noon Wednesday, the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office was notified of a breach of security at the George E. Edgecomb Courthouse. The Sheriffs Office, in conjunction with court officials, made an immediate determination for the need to evacuate the build ing as well as the adjoining courthouse annex building. Specifically a semi-automat ic firearm was detected on an X-ray machine at the main entrance to the courtho. use. The screening checkpoint Yfas operated by Hillsborough County Security ; and for rea sons yet to be determined, the bag that contained the weapon wa s removed from the check point, and the person, identi fied only as a Black female, entered the courthouse. The woman could not be immedi ately located, and officials said it appears the woman left the courthouse with the bag. The actions of the screening officers involved, as well as any operationi ll issues that con tributed to the weapon's intro duction, will be addressed by the criminal investigation, as well as an internal review by county officials. The courthouse was evacuat ed for 1 hour and 45 minutes, and it appears that disruptions to the court calendar were minimal. F a ther Asks For Help With Son's Defense Bakari 1-Muenda (David Lee Williams) and his father, Lee Williams. As a single parent, Lee Williams often told his son, David Lee Williams, how proud he was of him. Being an entrepreneur, Lee Williams instil,led in his son the motivation to work for a living and not be afraid to take risks. As a teenager, David sold flowers at the intersection of 40th Street and Hillsborough Avenue. "My proudest moment was when he graduated from Tampa Bay Vo-Tech with high honors," said Williams. "He attended and graduated from Florida State Universit y and got a degre e as a Computer Information Analyst." ;\}' Jlliams said:-l;lis son lege, anq cli a nged his nii;me to Bakari 1-Muenda. ''Things didn't work out as he planned in Atlanta, and he had to find just any job to take care of himself. He even tually got a job with Publix." In April 2oo9, Barkari was charged and convicted of arson, and is awaiting sentencing. "He is accused of setting fire to his own apartment," said Williams. "He was allegedly the last person seen leaving the apartment before the fire started. An inspector later determined the fire was arson." That event had such a negative effect on Bakari, Williams said his son was Baker Acted and actually spent two weeks in a hospi tal. "I don't believe my son is capable of doing what he's been accused of. I'm trying to raise funds to get him a proper defense so I can help him put his life back together." "My job is a lot tougher, because I'm here and he's in Georgia. I'd like to get his case back into court before he's sentenced I'm also very concerned about his mental state. He was already unstable, and now I fear this will push him right over the edge." Williams wants someone locally to steer him in the right direction so he can h e lp his son.

TheBucs Quanerback Dilemma The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are in pre-season camp preparing for their first exhi g ition game and they have q o idea who their starting q uarterback will be. On one hand, the Bucs want either Byron Leftwich or 'Luke McCowan for the starting job and the #1 draft pick, Josh Freeman to sit on the bench and learn.

Arena Football Is History For years, Arena Football whetted the appetite of foot ball crazy sports fans. It was not the NFL, but it was foot ball. The game was played during the NFL's off-season. It was played in arenas rather than football stadiums. The Arena Football League cancelled last season with the promise to play next season. But, since then, the league has shut down and plans to file for bankruptcy soon. Tampa had a team in the league and it won three championships.

WILLIAMS -Teenager's Goal Is To Compete In 2012 Olympics (8 1 3)293Coach Donald 'Wrecking Ball' Woods and Coach John Brooks. Donald "Wrecking Ball" Woods is 16 years old, and he has his sights set on competing as a welter weight (147 pounds) boxer i n the 2012 Olynipic Games. Coached by John "Saw Pretty" Brooks, Woods has amassed an 8-o record and recently won the 2009 Platinum Gloves Title dur ing an amateur contest at the Crowne Plaza in Orlando. The show was hosted by 10-time world champion, Hector "Macho" Camacho and his son, Hector Camacho, Jr. Along with Zarron MacNeal, Coach Brooks i s working hard ge tting Woods the fights he needs to qualify I have a busy schedule ahead for Wrecking Ball," s a id Coach Brooks. "In September, he w ill figh t i n Tampa on the 19th, th e n w e'll tra v el to Ft. Myers f o r a f ight on the 26th. We plan to take the month of October ot'f then start up r again in November with trips to Ft. Perce and Ocala We'll finish out the year with a big fight in Tampa on December 12th Since becoming a trainer about 15 years ago, Coach Brooks has seen a lot of young men and women with great potential. "The problem with that is others see their potential, and convince them they are ready for the next level. When they realize they aren't ready, sometimes I get them back as damaged goods. That can be very frus trating." Coach Brooks said to make sure Woods is sharp, he's going to have him spar with some professional fighters. "I think that experience will give him the edge he needs. I'd love to be the man who coaches an Olympic champion." Coach Brooks said his plan is to continue to mentor his grandson to take over the amateur training at Brooks Boxers so he can spend all his time training professionals. "We've developed our own theme song for Brook Boxers, so listen up and make sure you hear it when we enter an arena." Reporter Leon B.

Jquante Crews; 25, of Dallas, Ga., faces several charges including murder, possession of a firearm dur ing a commission of a felony and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. Police said they picked Crews up at his brother's house in College Park, Ga., and that he was the driver of the red Pontiacrest came hours after another suspect was denied bond. As his grandmother sat nearby weeping, 20-year-old Demario Ware had his first court appearance on charges of murder, aggravated assault, armed robbery and possession of a weapon b y a convicted felon. Ware turned himself in to authorities Tuesday night and appeared at a jailhouse hear ing in front of Fulton County Magistrate Sylvia McCoy, who read him the charges. Wearing a navy blue jail jumpsuit and han\fcuffs, Ware said noth1ng than "yes, ma'am" and kept his eyes on the floor. He is being held without bond. Ware's grandmother, Rose Thomas, sat in the courtroom crying. "He wasn't raised up to do the thing he done," she said after the hearing. "I'm sorry to the gentleman that got killed and his family. I know if I'm hurting like I am, then I know they're hurting Police say Forrest, 38, was shot to death after he chased a man who robbed him of his championship ring and Rolex watch. Police do not believe Ware is the person who shot Forrest and police are look ing for one more suspect. Ware's attorney, Curtis Hubbard, said his client is "not guilty until. proven guilty."

Coon Considers Releasing OJ. Simpson 0. J. SIMPSON LAS VEGAS --A trio of Nevada Supreme Court justices focused Monday on whether O.J. Simpson and a former golfing buddy received a fair trial in a gunpoint hotel room heist and whether the case was so unique that the two men should be freed from prison while their appeals are con sidered. "This is post-conviction. That's what concerns me," Justice Michael Cherry declared during rare oral arguments by lawyers about whether the former football star and co-defendant Clarence "C.J." Stewart should be allowed to post bond while their appeals are pending. Cherry, the chairman of the three-judge panel consid ering the bond request, say how long he and justices Mark Gibbons and Nancy Saitta might take to decide. It appeared unlikely a ruling would come before an Aug. 12 deadline for Clark County District Attorney David Roger to file a written answer to Simpson's appeal. Roger, who prosecuted Simpson and Stewart, argued Monday the men got a fair trial, a Nevada jury had spoken, and the. pair should continue to serve their sentences for kidnapping and armed robbery. It is tmusual for the Nevada Supreme Court, the state's only appeals court, to hear oral arguments about bond, and it would be even more unusual for Simpson or Stewart to be released. The last such high-profile appellant to get such a chance in Nevada skipped town after posting $wo,ooo in 1978. The justices are weighing whether Simpson or Stewart might flee, whether they pose a danger to the community, and if they have a good chance of winning their appeals. Mavweather's Uncle Arrested For Anack on Female Boxer ROGER MAYWEATHER lAS VEGAS --Boxer Mayweather Jr.'s uncle and trainer, Roger Mayweather, was arrested at a Las Vegas apartment in an attack on a female boxer he once trained, authorities said Tuesday. An aide to Clark County District Attorney David Roger said criminal charges were pending following the Sunday morning arrest of Roger Mayweather. Mayweather, 48, was arrested on felony coercion and battery-strangulation charges and later freed from the CI'ark County jail on $13,000 bail, said Detective Ramon Denby, a police department spokesman. A date for an initial court appearance was not immediately available, and it wa s unclear if Mayweather had a lawyer, police and court offi cials said. According to a police report, an officer responding to a disconnected 911 call found Mayweather fighting with a 25-year-old woman at the apartment in northwest Las Vegas. The woman told police she had been punched in the ribs and hit Mayweather with a lamp during a struggle She was treated by paramedics at the scene and taken to a Las Vegas hospital for treatment of injuries that included red ness around h e r throat poli c e said. Mayweather had injuri e s on the head and the side of his face. It was not clear if he required medical treatment before he was taken to jail. Stallworth Meets With Goodell About Re-instatement BEREA, OH --Cleveland Browns wide receiver Donte Stallworth, suspended indefinitely for killing a pedes trian while driving drunk, met in New York with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell about a possible reinstatement, according to media reports.

Sports Panthers Staning DT Kemoeatu Placed On Injured Reserve MAAKE KEMOEATU SPARTANBURG, SC --The Carolina Panthers placed. starting defensive tackle Maake Kemoeatu on. injured reserve Wednesday, ending his season the same day he underwent surgery on his torn right Achilles' tendon. The Panthers replaced him on the So-man roster with undrafted rookie defensive tackle George Hypolite. Kemoeatu was injured minutes into Carolina's first training camp practice Monday. Kemoeatu said Tuesday he was holding out hope of returning for the last month of the season, but the Panthers couldn t hold a ros ter spot that long. Former Ohio State Star Claren Withdraws Clemencv Request MAURICE CLARETI COLUMBUS, OH --Former Ohio State football star Maurice Clarett has withdrawn a request for early release from prison so he could pursue an NFL career. Clarett had argued that the sooner he was released, the sooner he could make a come back, possibly in the NFL. But he sent a letter Monday to the Ohio Parole Board explaining his decision to withdraw the request, Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction spokeswoman JoEllen Culp said Wednesday Parole board records are not public. Franklin County Ron O'Brien had opposed the move, saying the former Buckeyes standout hasn't made a strong case to be released so early in his prison term. "It probably was a reality check by both Mr. Clarett and his lawyer that they had no chance of obtaining clemency under the circumstances," O'Brien said Wednesday. Clarett, 25, was sentenced in September 2006 to serve at least 3-1j2 years for a holdup outside a Columbus bar and a separate highway chase earlier that year that ended with police finding loaged guns in his SUV. O'Brien's office agreed to the 3-1/2-year term on the grounds Clarett behaved in prison Bush .leaves Saints Practice REGGIE BUSH METAIRIE, LOUISIANA-Reggie Bush reached doWn to grab his left knee, gasped as if in pain, then looked over at the sideline, grinning Bush realized he'd caused a stir Wednesday morning when he suddenly walked off the practice field and returned with his surgically repaired left knee wrapped in ice. So during the club's second practice of the day in the evening, the star running back took a moment to joke about it, then returned to full partic ipation in team drills. "I iced it just as a precaution, so when I ice it, that means I'm just maintaining," Bush said between practices. "I've got to stay on toll of it and treat it as if it was the first day I injured it." Jerrv Jones, Son Disagree OverPacman PACMAN JONES On a couple of occasions over the past couple of months, rumors have surfaced that the Cowboys might resign cornerbaek Pacman Jones. To date, it hasn't hap pened. As one league source explained it, Executive Vice President Stephen Jones has been acquiring more juice within the building, as evidenced by the decision to dump Terrell Owens. So while owner Jerry Jones \might be tempted to give Pacman another chance, we're told that Stephen Jones is squarely against itand that as a result it most likely won't be happening. Boldin: 15 Teams Wanted To Trade For Me ANQUAN BOLDIN Anquan Boldin joined XTRA Sports 910 in Phoenix to talk about the long offseason, all the distractions that went with it, ietting his previous agent Drew Rosenhaus go, his boxing training and how he's just excited to get the pads back on and go to work On the possibility of him being traded this past offsea son and how close he think s a deal was to getting done: Honestly, I know of 15 teams t his is a league where everyone communicates. So you have players everywhere guys that I work out with in Florida, guys that I'm friends with and they talk to their GMs, and they relay messages back and forth.

HOLTON Sentinel City Editor One rule of writing is to select a subject that you know about. In writing novels, this is particularly important when designing places and various scenes. Ms. Hall Crews applied that formula when she began to write "Grown Fokes Bidness." Ms. Hall Crews decided to tise her hometown of Tampa as a backdrop for her first novel. It was recently released by AEG Publishing Group. I think Tampa is a great city with a lot of interesting points. Some of the places are fictional, some are loca tions that people would re cognize, and some are based on real locations, but were given a different name. "Grown Fokes Bidness" promises to take the reader's emotions on a roller coaster ride. "It will make you cry, it will make you angry, but above all, it will make you realize that when life gives you lemons, you make lemonade," she said.

Their journey brought them to a place that left them feeli ng une asy. Th e re were some n eeds a nd wants they desired that h ad not yet b een met. As a result they lifted up their vo i ces and murmured against those w ho were l eadi n g th em (vv. 1,2). Th ey said that they would be bette r off to had died in Egypt or there in the wilderness (vs. 3). It is interesting to see the people's reaction to a difficult time in their life even after all they have seen God do in the past. It is important for you to not allow your current circumstance make you think that you are better off dead when you are in route to a better place of liv-. ing. To them, it was better for them back in Egypt (vs. 3b). EgyPt was a place of bondage and slavery. Egypt was a place where the y were belittled abused, and mis treat ed. Is there rea ll y a n ything that you are going through now with God that makes you wan t to go b ack t o your old da y s of sin ful liv ing? It might seem lik e it was good to you, but like the cli c h e goes, "what looks good to you, is not always good for you : Even after they wanted to choose new leadership (vs. 4) Moses and Aaron still made intercession for them.

You need someone who is deter mined to press through the dark days of life a nd make it through the storm. Th e way the y were going to m a k e it through this place and season was to trust God and b e lieve tha t if they d e light e d in the Lord th a t H e would d eliver them (vs. 8). In your lif e focus l ess on th e situation and put mor e con fid e nce in God. Neither they nor you a re on this journey alone. God didn' t tell them to leave Egypt by themselves. God did not save you to live your life alone. God was with them and He is also with you. As a result of the doubting and rebellious actions God chastised them (vv. 11,12). God does not let them go back to Egypt but He does allow them to experience the wrath inflicted upon Egypt. They wanted to be back in Egypt so He let them, with out physically going. As you live you do not want to pro voke God God is trying to give you all the goodness that you need and He is tak ing care of you the way He sees fit. Consider how you would respond to your child who kept talking about how life would be if they lived some where else. Do not live life provoking God by doubting His ability to sustain you and provide for you regardless of your situation and circum stance. God loves you and He cares. God did not save you, deliver you, and set you free to get you on the road to peace,'joy, and prosperity for you to go back or die. No matter what life brings, trust God.

. i / First and foremost, I would like to offer my humble thanks for the opportunity to serve as ur "voice in Tallahassee" during the 2009 Legislative Session. i am very appreciative of ur support and your many correspondences. Our priority this legislative season was to focus on Florida's economic recovery, insuring that we met the needs of our working families and communities. Whiie progress was made, we not realize all of our goals concerning programs that provide health services to Florida's ior citizens. Despite these roadblocks, there is much to be proud of The Legislature secured funding for our public school system and expanded eligibility to Florida KidCare, a national model program that provides a free health care to children in poverty. This session also was successful in implementing a crack down on the illegal sale of prescription drugs and tracing distribution of powerful d r ugs prescribed to children from various medical professionals in, it is an honor to serve you in the Florida House of Representatives. I am committed to improving the quality of life for all Floridians. I urge you to contact my office if there is anything I can assist you with. My staff and I look forward to hearing from you. Sincerely, Governor Charlie Crist unveiled the Florida Office of Economic After several years of F 1 .. r i d a tireless efforts the Legislature agreed this K i d ca. r e ye ar to expand eligibility to Florida KidCare, a subsidized health insurance program for uninsured children under 19 from lowand moderate-income families To apply for Florida KidCare, call 888-540-5437 or Visit: www.floridakidcare.org -Law Enforcement ExploresCS/CSIFIB 57 Sponsored by Rep.

Rel'd HB 421-Status for Tuition HB 613 -Commissioner of Education HB 755-Water Conservation HB 1037-Community Corrections HR 9053 -Dr. Walter L. Smith The 2009 Legislative Session was dominated with debate on how to resolve a $6 billion budget deficit. In order to reconcile this deficiency, Florida made use of $5. 3 billion provided through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA), offered by President Barack Obama and Congress However these major accomplishments were made with federal funding When evaluating our efforts to maintain a healthy state budget, my colleagues and I were disappointed with the increased taxes and fees levied on the citizens of this great state. When the dust cleared, the $66 5 billion budget raised university tuition, drained trust funds and cut programs crucial to meeting the needs of specifically our seniors who rely heavily on our state's health care system In order to take a stand for our future I voted NO to this budget's final passage. We moved in the right direction for seniors this session by funding two initiatives, the Meds-AD and Medically Needy programs. Meds-AD assists in the purchase of prescription drugs, while Medically Needy provides essential health care for low income families. Flouua's low-income seniors will see a reduction in out of pocket expenses. While we had successes, we failed to secure funding for support that seniors heavily"depend upon. The Medicaid reimbursement rates to nur s ing homes were reduced this legislative session. A budget cut here exposes our seniors risking what they have to call "home" We've got to make efforts to secure future funding so that all citizens have a peace of mind regarding their living quarters. .., :::D c )> c: G') c: C/) -4 ......

Local Free Professional Grant Writing Workshop To Be Held Michael Randolph, CEO of the National Institute For Strategic And Tactical Planning, is announcing that the West Tampa Community Development Corporation and his organization will host a free professional grantwriting workshop in basic grant writing. The workshop will be held August 13, 2009 from 1 p.m until 3 p.m. at the West Tampa Library, 2312 West Union Street "If there are to be any changes in West Tampa, the community must have a say in those changes," said Randolph. "So far what's kept most of the development projects away from the people is because they don't own any of the homes or businesses b e in g t a r ge ted for de ve lop-MICHAEL RANDOLPH ment." Randolph feels if the community is able to write grants, they can secure funds to empower themselves and have a voice in the rebirth of West Tampa. Randolph said staff, administrators, board members of non-profit groups, f aith based org anizations, A Million Black Fathers Expected To lead 200 9 Silent March Like an army on its way to battle, hundreds of thousands of Black men will wake their children, make them breakfast, check their book bags, and then take them to school on the first day of school this fall.

This year, an estimated 8oo,ooo men are expected to participate. "Research has shown that children whose fathers take an active role in their educational lives earn better grades, getter better test scores, enjoy school more and are r11ore likely to graduate from high school and attend college," said Phillip Jackson, Executive Director of the RHrck Star Project, a Chicago-based non-profit leading the annual Million Fqther March initiative.

Symptoms depend on which area of the brain is involved.

These Are Sumvtoms Qf A Potentiallu Dangerous Blood Clot In Your Leg, especially if they come after you've been sitting for a long time, such as on an airplane or during a long car trip. These signs can also surface if you've been bedridden after surgery. Blood is more likely to pool in your legs when you're sitting or lying down for long periodr of time, as opposed to standing and walking. If a blood clot forms in your leg as a result, your calf can feel swollen, painful, and tender to the touch; you should be evaluated. If you get sudden chest pain or shortness of breath, a piece of the blood clot may have broken off and traveled through the bloodstream to your lungs This condition can be life-threaten ing, so get to an emergency room without delay 4 Blood in the urine without accompanying pain Anytime you see blood in your urine, call your doctor promptly, even if you have no pain. Kidney stones or a bladder or prostate infection are common causes of blood in the urine. But these problems .are usually painful or uncomfort able, which sends people to the doctor promptly. Cancer of the kidney, bladder, or prostate can cause bleeding into the urinary tract; when these cancers are small enough to be curable, they may not cause pain. 5 Asthma symptoms that don't improve or get worse. Asthma attacks are marked by wheezing or difficulty breathing. When an attack doesn't improve or worsens, a patient should get emergency care. If an asthma attack is left untreated, it can lead to severe chest muscle fatigue and death makes breath :_ ing diffi<;ult, the, lti uscles for breathing may ti!-',i' and the volume by the lungs Will As a result, a person's oxygen level drops while blood levels of carbon dioxide rise. 6.

Symptoms of depression include sadness, fatigue, apa thy, anxiety, changes in sleep habits, and loss of appetite. Depression can be treated with medications and psychotherapy.

SniH Your Stress Awav The fresh scent of linalool, a floral scented compound found in many foods and flowers such as oranges, grapes, mangos, lemons, basil, and lavender, may suppress stress-related chemical and gene changes in 'rats. Inhaling the linalool caused a reduction in the level of stress So, there really is a good reason to 'Stop and Smell the Flowers.' Whv Your Feet Hurt PARTIOFII Here are the six most common feet ailments that women experience and a few tips on how to treat them effectively. 1. Plantar Fasciitis -Feels like : A sharp pain in your heel (or heels) that's at its worst when you get out of bed. What causes it: Inflammation of the plantar fascia, a thick band of tissue .that runs along the bottom of your foot from the heel to the toes. People with all arch types -high, medium, or low can be prone to this type of irritation. Wearing shoes with very flat or very high heels can worsen the problem. And if your Achilles tendon often feels tight, it can exacerbate the issue. Treatment Strategies: Wear structured shoes. Look for pairs that support the arches and enclose the heels. Avoid going barefoot or wearing ballet flats or flip flops. Stretch your Achilles ten dons in the morning. Before hopping out of bed, wrap a towel or a T-shirt around your feet and pull the toes back to stretch the tendons. Reduce swelling. Fill a plas tic bottle with water, freeze it, and roll it under your foot for a minutes to soothe the pain. Consider custom orthotics. A podiatrist can make inserts that are molded specifically for your feet, which will control their motion and decrease strain on the plan tar fasciae when worn inside shoes. 2. Ingrown Toenail -Feels like: A throbbing sen sation, usually on the side of a big toe. It might look red and swollen. What causes it: This often occurs when the nail edge grows sideways into the skin of the toe. The pressure on the nail jabs into the surrounding skin, causing dis comfort. Wearing shoes that are too tight or too narrow can exacerbate the problem. Cutting toenails incorrectly can also be a culprit. Treatment Strategies; Wear pointy-toed shoes infrequently. And if you'll be walking a lot, carry them and wear shoes with roomy toe boxes until you reach your destination. Keep feet well moistur ized. When the skin on your toes gets inflamed, a callus can develop, causing more pressure on the ingrown nail. Keeping skin soft helps alle viate this problem Cut toenails straight across And don't file the corners down. If you get pedicures, be sure the technician fol lows these rules. See a podiatrist if you sus pect infection. Signs include significant swelling and red ness. 3 Bursitis -Feels like: A bump, usually on the back of a heel. What causes it: "This condition can occur when you have a genetically enlarged heel bone. Treatment Strategies: Switch to shoes with open backs (or at least with more give) until the irritation sub sides. Use a donut pad. Place one over the bursa to alieviate pressure. At the end of the day, ice the area to soothe the inflammation. Consider seeing a doctor. If the problem causes chronic pain, a podiatric surgeon can remove the bursa and the enlarged part of the heel bone." ttl$ guys want;.'HI. m y name ls .Nay..:Nay. 1 was working at Hollywood Nights until I realized 1 can make more money out Here: Yolfkfiow "working the str&$ts".

Entertainment Jackson Tribute Provides Monev For liPD Project MICHAEL JACKSON LOS ANGELES --The people who staged Michael Jackson's memorial service have donated $90,000 to build a tribute to fallen Los Angeles police officers. Anschutz Entertainment Group, which owns Staples Center in Los Angele s donated money rec ei ved from the sale o f 18 luxury suites to guests at the July 7 Jackson memorial. The company says the decision to donate the money was made before a dispute developed over city funds spent to provide secu rity and other services dur ing the memorial. Karen Wagener, president of the Los Angeles Police Foundation, says AEG hand-delivered a check for $90,000 to the nonprofit group on Thursday. Wagener says it will be used to help fund a $620,000 memorial -a brass wall expected to be unveiled in September at the site of a new downtown police headquarters. Don Magic Juan Joins MCs on DID Dissinu Stenans BISHOP DON MAGIC JUAN Karrine Steffans is get ting a taste of her own medi cine with thel recent release of "Kiss & Tail: The Hollywood Jump-off," a DVD documentary that reportedly reveals even more secrets about the former music video vixen than she has already told. "Kiss & Tail," directed by Thomas Gibson and fea turing interviews with Bishop Don Magic Juan, rappers Ja Rule, Akon and Big Boi, model Tyson Beckford and others, blows the cover off the practice of dancers trading sex for more face and booty-shaking time in rap videos. But since most of these women don't kiss and-tell, the expose' reserves all of its wrath for Steffans, aka Superhead, which is the nickname she gave her self after starring in a porn video where she performed fellatio. In "Kiss & Tail," which is narrated by Wendy Williams, singer Norwood Young describes Steffans as "the epitome of a wolf in sheep's clothing" and claims that she admitted faking her tears during an appearance on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" to promote her 2006 best-seller, "Confessions of a Video Vixen." ... .. . . ... !e YOU : e t:?_t ... ur Spelking.

"I Gatta Feeling" logged a fifth consecutive week at No. 1, following 12 weeks at the top by "Boom Boom Pow." Both tunes come from the hip-hop group's recent No. 1 album "The E.N.D Boyz II Men reigned on the chart for two 16-week runs in the mid-'gos. Following "I Gatta Feeling," Drake's "Best I Ever Had" held steady at No.2 and Keri Hilson featuring Kanye West and Ne-Yo's "Knock You Down" rose one to No. 3 Dick Greuorv savs He's on A Michael Jackson Fast DICK GREGORY Dick Gregory, long time friend of the late Michael Jackson, announced Thursday that he will, "go on a fast on water only for 40 days until the truth is uncov ered about the sudden death of Michael Jackson." "It's hard on folks to lose a loved one, especially some one so young as Michael," Gregory said in a statement. "All I pray for now is that the truth will be told about what happened, and I don't think it has been yet but people deserve to know." Gregory added: There's so much that has been kept secret under the pretense of what they call an 'ongoing investigation."' The activist-comedian vowed to continue a daily prayer vigil and invited all those who loved the King of Pop to join him in prayer and meditation for the truth to come out. :a c Kanve West Denies c: Ever saving He's The 'New King 01 Pop' KANYEWEST wrote.

Entertainment lil wavne on Chris Brown: 'U Kno I Had To ShoW Him Sum luv' LILWAYNE Lil Wayne fans got a big surprise when the America's Most Wanted tour rolled into the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater in Virginia Beach, Virginia, two nights after Drake was forced to leave the tour after seriously re-injuring his knee. That surprise was a guest appearance from Chrfs Brown. In his first onstag.e appearance since guilty to assaultirrg Rihanna in Februar:y, singer Chris Brown jumped onstage near the end of headliner LH Wayne's set. Brown, who is from Virginia, helped otit by lending his voice t.o Drake's "Every Girl," an : d paid tribute to Michael Jackson as "Billie Jean" played in the background at the end of the night's show. Wayne asked the crowd to make noise for "the neir Michael." When asked by MTV News for a comment about the performance, Weezy responded simply via e-mail through a rep: "U kno I had to show him sum luv." Nick cannon Responds To Eminem's 'Warning' With Biblical Tweets NICK CANNON The ongoing forth pitting Eminem against Mariah Carey and husband Nick Cannon -which began with Em's "Bagpipes From Baghdad" and continued with Carey's "Obsessed" and then Em's "The Warning"-took an unusual turn over the week end, as Cannon produced a series of quotes, original statements and Biblical tweets (concluding with one actually from the Bible) that, while not naming Eminem or 'The Warning" directly, did seem to address the MC's latest attack on his wife. "Quote of the day: 'Never argue with fools because from a distance people can't tell who is who,'" he tweet ed Friday to kick things off. What followed was a series of inspirational quotes apparently intended to defuse the situation and ultimately put "The Warning" in the past. "Be patient in the moment of anger and escape a hundred days of sorrow!" (often erroneously cited as a Chinese proverb) he followed up. Four minutes later, he tweeted Booker T. Washington's quote, "I will permit no man to nar row or degrade my soul by making me hate him. n Cannon also suggested that a reprisal from either he or Careywas unlikely. "Never take your revenge," he wrote, quoting the Bible, "but rather give place unto the wrath. For it is written that vengeance is mine, I will repay ... PREACH!" (from Romans 12:19). Also in there was another Bible quote, "I will bless those that bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse," from Genesis 12:3. 'Housewives Of Atlanta' Set Another Bravo Record Bravo announced that its premiere of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" drew over four million view ers across its 10 p.m and 11 p.m. telecasts, making it the highest rated series premiere in "Real Housewives" franchise history, according to Nielsen Media Research.

On the afternoon of Wednesday, July 29th, Granny passed away ... the day before her 81st birthday. This week end, she will be laid to rest. You never know!
