HOLTON Sentinel City Editor In June, President Barack Obama nominated Hillsborough County Judge Charlene Edwards Honeywell and Judge Jeffrey Viken, Federal Public Defender for North and South Dakota to serve as Federal District Judges. The nominations required confir mation from the U. S. Senate before they became official. On. Monday, Judge Honeywell watched the pro ceedings as the Senate voted.

In the final analysis, Judge Honeywell was confirmed by a vote of 88-o. "As I watched the vote by the Senate, I felt blessed, hon ored, and humbled to be given the opportunity for greater public seivice." The next phase of the confirmation is for President Obama to sign the Commission and the swearing in ceremony. After that takes place, Judge Honeywell will begin the lifetime appointment as one of three African American women in the state serving on the feder al level. Judge Honeywell will join Judge Mary Scriven in the U. S. Middle District of Florida. Another African American woman serves in the Southern District.

Opinions expressed on editorial pages o f this newspaper by Columnists or Guest Writers do not necessarily reflect the editoria l stance of The Florida SenUne l Bulletin or the Publi s her The TiP Of The Iceberg C ould it be that Major Nidal Hassan, the Army psychiatrist who shot and killed 12 soldiers and a civilian at Ft. Hood, Texas is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the topic of extremists in the military? The point is this. While America is focusing on one lone soldier who happens to be Muslim, there are thousands of white supremacists and other extremists serving in practically every branch of this nation's military. Remember Marine Lance Corporal Kody Brittingham who was stationed at Camp Lejuene, North Carolina, who was arrested for armed robbery and had a journal containing white supremacist literature and a plan to kill President Barack Obama? Last year, information gathered by the Department of Defense showed "an online network of 57 Neo-Nazi active Army and Marine duty personnel at five military installations," including Ft. Hood. At least 320 extremists were identified at Ft. Lewis in the state of Washington. Three Neo-Nazi skinheads from Ft. Bragg's 82nd Airborne Division murdered a Black couple 14 years ago. So, extremists in the military do not represent a recent phenomenon. Perhaps now, both Congress and the military will respond to the Southern Poverty Law Center's July 2009 request to investigate extremism in the mili-tary. We can only hope. Framed For Child Pornographv D o you have a mortal enemy who would do anything to harm you or ruin your reputation? If you didn't, you do, now! Remember the Polk County elementary school principal who was removed for having child porno-graphy on his computer, and who charged that he had been set up by someone else who downloaded the porn onto his computer? Well, he may well have been telling the truth. Here's why. Recent news reports tell us that hackers can now infect your computer with child pornography and you won't suspect a thing. Even scarier is the fact that pedophiles can remotely log on to your infected computer to store and view the pornography without your knowledge. The horror of it all is that law enforcement officials can knock on your door, seize your computer, find the pornography and haul you off to jail, and you won't know what hit you. Unfortunately, your reputation and credibility will be lost while you try feverishly to prove your innocence, which can cost you hundreds of thousands of dollars. So we warn those of you who often "surf the web," or download programs and attachments, that you are vulnerable and should take your internet security more seriously than ever before. Make certain your computer has a current, reputable and effective anti-spyware and anti-virus software installed that is maintained and updated regularly. Moreover, open e-mail attachments only from people you know. Term limits For Congress Th e r e i s t a lk goin g a r o und in C o n g r ess th a t i s s u g gestin g t e rm limits for members of Congress What do I think? H a I think it is great. In f a ct I wrote in this same column ten y ears ago that ther e should be term limits for all governmel}t offi cials I do not in career politicians. I also belie v e that the longer a politician is in office the more complacent that elected official becomes, the easier it is for them to become corrupt and sooner or later they begin to feel an entitlement to that elected office. Long-term politicians forget that they serve at the pleasure of the voters and that their job is to represent the people that sent them there_ In Congress, a Representa-tive se r ves a t er m o f :2. years w hil e S e n a tor s ser v e a t e rm of 4 years. But th e r e i s n o limit on th e number of terms that they can s erve. Curr e ntly R e presentative Charles Rangel has served more than 38 years in the Senate I submit to y ou that that is too long for an y bod y to hold one office. It 's oka y to move on to another elected position, but there should be term limits on that office, too. Will Congress go to term limits? Probably not. Being a congressperson is a nice, cushy job that is financially and socially rewarding for the members of Congress to term limit themselves out of office Career office holders accumu late a large amount of politi cal contributions from special interest groups and begin to become more beholding to A Somber Veteran's oav A nd now they belong to eternity" is how President Barack Obama bid farewell to the men and women who lost their lives untimely and unnecessarily, at what is being called The Massacre of Ft. Hood, Texas. On this day of days when we reflect with bitter and sen sitive tears about the road we have travelled, which has been washed with blood, we Americans are made to pause for a moment, to wonder how we got over. No greater diversity has ever made a nation mightier than ours. No loftier dreams have ever been uttered nor dreamt to preserve a more ambitious idea that people should live in freedom. And y et seemingly the cost of this fanciful freedom has been continuous blood and violence. Why? Why have we who proudly call ourselves the rightful heirs of Liberty been called upon so often to lay down our most precious commodities our very lives for such a weightless, sightless, tasteless thing called Democracy? None of the soldiers recently slain at Ft. Hood in Iraq, Afghanistan or anywhere else where American fighting men and women have ever died, could ever say before they met their doom that they had seen the color of Freedom, the substance of Liberty or the footprint of the Pursuit of Happiness. Yet they gladly died for it Black, white, Muslim, Christian, Jewish, even athe ist, male, female, gay and les bian all set aside their petty ethnicities and identities to don uniforms and brandish ideals that to be called American was to be willing to fight and die for the privilege. But why? Why has Freedom never been free? Why has something, which cannot be eaten, nor drunk nor worn in any shape or fashion, seemed always to demand a blood sacrifice from America's youngest and ablest citizens? As if the sacrifice of the elder ly were not enough, no old men were murdered, last week, at Ft. Hood. Young, handsome men and women were called upon to lay down lives and to forsake families and futures, to divest themselves of all the pastimes and prefer ences reserved by them whose lives have not yet, been consummated and whose years have not yet, been sealed witg arthritic stamp. They whose names and ., ::D 0 th e m o n ey p e opl e than th e citi z e n s they r e pr ese nt Z T e rm limit s allow for n e w blood, n e w ideas, n e w e nergy m and a n e w d edic ation to make a diff e r e nce.

Because of this, we love a lot of excellent public servants who ne ver get a chance to serve. This is another reason we need term limits The President of the United States, Governors of states, Mayors of cities and County Commissioners and City Council people all face term limits. Why must United States Cong ress people be treated any differently? We always hear complaints about how Washington, D. C. politics works. Well, maybe term limits will change all of that for the better. ., I firmly support term limits rfor the United States g Congress. finger prints had just been placed upon the files of the living were the ones abruptly called back, in the name of American Freedom. Why? And no one could answer President Obama, witg all his eloquence and wondrous words that touched hardened soldiers and made them weep, as they stood at attention, could not answer the question of why so many tens of thousands of Americans have died through the years to preserve this thing called Liberty. In Arlington Cemetery, countless miniature fluttered in an unseasonably warm breeze, yet, their salute in unison could not explain why the bones they represented had been laid to rest, in honqr of a When will it end? How will it end? What will be the toll of flesh and blood? How many religions will be ground to dust, families destroyed, dreams disintegrated before we finally see the reality of peace on earth, for us all? Must we always fight for our children to grow up hap pily? Must our dreams forev er be tainted by nightmares of Armageddon? Surely, contin uous death is not God's plan! At a memorial ceremony at Ft. Hood, President Obama was heard to say about the 13 fallen dead, "In en m z ::! z m t;" m c: rr-!!I z c: m r-cn :::c m c m < m -1 c: m en 0 )> z c ., ::D B an era of division, they call upon us to come together.

After the trick they played ten years ago with the 'Y2k' scare, I vowed to never subscribe to another disaster prediction. Back then, no one knew what to expect during the alleged turn of the millennia. Rumors of crashing computer grids causing power outages and chaos all over the globe spread like wildfire. It was supposed to be the end of civilization, returns to the stone ages, Prince's prophesy from his '1999' album fulfilled. But when the clock struck 12 a.m. on Jan. 1st Two Thousand Zero Zero, nothing happened. Stop lights continued to turn red, yellow and green. The music kept playing. The apple in time Square didn't explode at the end of Dick Clark's countdown. And when the sun rose a couple of hours later, it was business as usual. As far as I was concerned, we had all been duped, led to fear something that didn't exist. It seemed like another successful ploy by the powers-that-be to keep us at a heightened state of anxiety.

And now that same hype machine appears to be cranking back up There i s no way of knowing what they're up to this time around. But to l e t them explain it, we're only three years away from facing another global holocaust. This time, our demise is scheduled to occur right before Christmas, December 12, 2012 to be exact. According to the archaeologists and historians who introduced this ominous timetable several years ago, that's the day that the world, as we know it, will forever be changed. They are basing this latest doomsday scenario on their interpretation of a calendar created by a Mayan civilization that existed over three thousand years ago. Apparently, this Mayan calendar has been so accurate at predicting weather patterns and global events for so many centuries, that some people are taking the fact that it doesn't lay out a future beyond the year 2012 seriouslv. The e xperts can't seem to agr ee on exactly what might happen. But the common consensus is that it will be an event so grand in scale, that it will change the course of humal! history. That means, if what they're saying is true, anything could transpire: contin uous global warming causing massive hurricane and tsunamis that wipe out coastal cities all over the world, a meteor strike that kills two-thirds of the Earth's population, a worldwide viral outbreak that would make H1N1 look like a common cold, the super volcano under Yellowstone National Park erupting, and how would any 'end of the world as we know it' list be complete without the obligatory specter of a nuclear fallout? Hollywood has already jumped on the apocalyptic bandwagon, capitalizing off of the fear by making films like 'Knowing' and '2012' while planting seeds of paranoia into the minds of a scared and gullible populace. But after you've read the books, seen the movi es and watched the numerous talk shows that are sure to address the issue over the next year, you have to ask yourself, 'Is it really worth worrying about this far in advance?' Because nobody honestly knows what's going to happen on that second Wednesday in December three years from now, the only certain%is that on Thursday Dec 13 we'll all be either laughing about another bogus prophecy or wishing we would have done more with the life we were given. Personally, when that time comes, I'm banking on being able to tell a few jokes about what they're going to come up with to frighten us in 2022.

CREWS Sentinel Staff Writer When Reg Crooms started his Gourmet Coffees and Teas business, he had two goals. One was to help others, and the other was to create a busi ness that was not only reces sion proof, but could be hand ed down to his grandchildren. Crooms, an Orlando, Florida native, is the owner of Rabicas Gourmet Coffees and Teas, and specializes in African coffees and teas. Crooms said this is his third business venture since graduating from Florida A&M University with a B.S. in Biology. "After graduating, I taught school for a while, and helped the Orlando Times get started. "That experience was interesting, and although it was the second Black newspaper in Orlando, we managed to grow larger than our predecessor. We are able to successfully tap into the white advertising market, which was a first for that area." Crooms said he had a clothing business for a while and after he received his MBA in Global Management, he decided he needed a business ha would weather the economic storm. "I looked at products that were affordable to consumers, REG CROOMS and coffee was it." Crooms said he works primarily out of his home, and everything they send out is fresh roasted. "A lot of people don't know that Africa is where coffee originated from, in particular, Ethiopia. The difference between African coffee and coffee from South America is African coffee is much stronger, bolder, and full flavored. It also helps the Ethiopian economy for us to purchase our beans from them. "Our latest efforts are to help the people of Haiti by buying Haitian Bleu, their island-grown coffee. We're working to get access to filter some of the profits back to that poor country." Crooms, married with three children, said Rabicas services several area restaurants, espe cially Ethiopian restaurants.

The Bucs emerged from their victory over the Packers with a banged up secondary. Safety Will Allen appears to have a broken right thumb.

Tanard Jackson also had to leave Sunday's contest with an unknown injury. He was replaced by Corey Lynch. Cornerback Elbert Mack was absent in the second half because of a badly sprained right ankle that was very swollen after the game. Torrie Cox finished the game as the nickel back and played well Wide receiver Antonio Bryant said it wasn't his decision to sit out Sunday's game. He said team doctors and coaches overruled him.

The 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Tuesday affirmed Judge David Doty's order saying Vick had already earned the bonuses before his dogfighting conviction, so the money wasn't subject to forfei ture. Vick served 18 months in prison and is now with the Philadelphia Eagles. Doty has long handled mat ters arising from the NFL's col lective bargaining agreement. After Doty ruled in the Vick bonus case, the NFL accused him of bias and sought to end his oversight of its contract with the players union. with a groi n injury As happened last week, FAMU jumped out to a quick lead looking as if it would be an easy day at the office.

Still, the Steelers' answer appears to be the same as it was in 2003: Johnson isn't in their plans. Johnson, who has long wanted to play in Pittsburgh, was cut Monday after being suspended by Kansas City for the second time in a year. The Steelers have long stayed away from signing troubled players, and they appear to be set at running back with starter Rashard Mendenhall and backup Willie Parker. yards.

This week, rapper 50 Cent, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, admitted that he spends $20,000 a week on security at his Farmington, Connecticut, mansion. "My home is surrounded by cameras. I need surveillance not only to look out for me, but also to protect me. You get all these crazy lawsuits, and I need cameras to check on things." Jackson's security costs work out to a little over $1 million a year. Although spending more on security in two weeks than the average American's year ly income may seem excessive, Jackson's expenditlires are in the lower end of what most high-profile indi viduals pay to protect themselves, their families and their property. 50 Says His Power Fragrance 'Smells Like Success' 50 Cent got a chance to get up close and personal with the people, taking pictures with fans at Macy's.

Peter writes to inform and encourage the believer dur ing periods of suffering in life He says to them, "Do not be surprised at the painful trial you are suffering, as though something strange were happening to you" (vs. 12).

In addition it is not strange because you have seen and heard of oth ers who have had seasons or periods of suffering Peter recommends to those who suffer to rejoice (vs. 13). The rejoicing is not in the fact that you are going through some uncom fortable pain or ordeal. This is a painful situation! What he is suggesting you rejoice about, is the fact that you get to share in the sufferings of Christ. As a believer or follower of Christ, the enemy will target you. Then the enemy will come after you because you call on the name that is greater than any other name. The blessing in of all this is that you are not forsaken as you go through a period of suffering and trials. There is going to be a glory greater than the suffering that you experience.

When people insult you they are saying things about you that are hurtful, rude, and offensive. Often times people who do not understand your beliefs or in whom you believe, will say things that are hurtful and offensive.

We should not suffer because these or any other sins because as Christians we ought not to commit them. If you suffer, you want your suffering to be because of righteousness and because you are living the way God has commanded. Suffering is a part of your Christian experience. What makes the difference is why you are suffering and how you respond to it. Remember, as a Christian, you want to suffer because you are living right.

When the body fails to make or properly use insulin-a hor mone that takes glucose from the bloodstream and carries it into the body's cells, where it is used for energy--the condition is called diabetes Too much glucose built up in the blood stream can have serious longterm consequences for the kidneys eyes and heart. While most people with dia betes use medication to man age their blood sugar, many Diabetes, Exercise And low Blood Sugar also turn to exercis e Physical activity is lik e a 'sec r e t weapon' in the battl e aga inst th e effects of diab e tes. When you exerc ise, your body becomes more sensitive to th e effects of insulin. For many people with diabetes, regular exercise, such as taking a walk every day, may make it possible to cut the amount of medications they need to control their blood sugar. Because exercise helps to lower blood sugar, some dia betes medications may need to be adjusted to avoid hypo glycemia as you go about your exercise program Hypoglycemia is the medical term for low blood sugar A s udden drop in blood s u ga r ca n h ave serious conse quences. I;:xercise, which nat urally pulls s ugar out of your bloodstream for energy, can trigger a severe drop in blood sugar. Hypoglycemia can bring on a variety of symptoms, from an urgent need to eat in mild cases, to dizziness and confu sion, to--in the most severe ex amples--a seizure, convulsions or coma. Fortunately, it's usually pos sible to raise blood sugar levels quickly by simply eating or drinking a food or beverage that contains carbohydrates (a glass of fruit juice or five or six pieces of hard candy) Medicare Enrollment Deadline Approaching The annual enrollment period for Medicare Part D is underway starting November 15 through December 31. Many Medicare Part D en rollees are concerned about the "doughnut hole," a term coined to describe the gap in prescrip tion coverage According to the Kaiser Foun dation, as many as 14% of en rollees fall into the gap, which occurs when a person's pre scription costs reach $2,700. Coverage resumes when out of pocket spending reaches $4,350. This gap puts a finan cial strain on seniors who typi cally take numerous medications. However, by re viewing medications and plans each year, there may be oppor tunities to avoid the doughnut hole Here are some tips to get you started: Review Your Current Medications Consider Total Cost Why Review Each Year?

I stayed faithful and wasn't with anyone, but he had several intimate flings. I'm having second thoughts because he refuses to have an HIV test with me. He claims that I know his habits since we were together so long. I agree, but he was the one sleeping around. Am I wrong to refuse this relationship because ofthe HIV testing?

Website: www.askdeanna.com For many Americans when asked, "What part of your finan cial life gives you the most trou ble?" They often answer, paying down debt. I believe this is so because debt is mathemati cally and spiritually powerful. Proverbs 22:7 says, "The rich rule over the poor, and the bor rower becomes the lender's slave." Excessive debt often is, just a bad habit that needs to be broken. Getting in control of debt first starts with knowing finan cially where you stand and then moving forward. At leastonce yearly it's a great choice to check yourcredit report for accuracy: and you can d() so fodree through the three major credit bureaus. Get your report online at www,annualcredjtreport.com, or by contacting Experian at 1888-397-3742 or Equifax 1800-685-1111 or TransUnion at 1877-322-8228. Going online or calling the bureaus gets the 'debt-free' ball rolling and puts the momentum in your favor Lastly, let me encourage you to create and stick to a budget. If you urgently want to be debt free, a budget will help you to track your money. There are three important things that your budget will show: 1. What's coming in. 2. What's going out. 3.
