CREWS Sentinel Staff Writer >=' Willie Clay, Jr. is a senior C at Middleton High School. 0: H.e's lived in C. Blythe Anu.. Mews Public Housing Complex for 7 years and is one of six siblings raised by a single parent, Willie Clay, Sr. In 1999, Willie, Sr. was in a car accident in Georgia and was injured so severely, doc tors weren't expecting him to survive. He is confined to a wheelchair. Everything the doctors said I wasn't going to be able to do, I can do," said Clay, Sr. "My kids make it all worth while. I live better now than I did before the accident I lived an abusive lifestyle before the accident, and now I have a new perspective." Part of that new perspective =:;: is the success of his son. C Willie, Jr., who is the starta: ing quarterback for the Midu.. C dleton Tigers' football team. z On being a single parent, < Clay, Sr. said it takes a lot of =:;: effort and discipline.

When my son told me he wanted to play football, r was alright with it. He's been into it for 7 years now, and I told him as long as he keeps his grades up, he could do it He's done that and then some What Clay, Sr. means by the "and th e n some," statement is, Willie, Jr. has earned a 4.6 GPA and is on the principal's honor roll. In Sep tember 2009, he was honored with a plaque at the Florida Sentinel H e ritage Classic. Clay, Sr. said all he 's asked of all of his children is to grad uate high school. 'I'd like to see them go to college ; but that will be their choice." I've beenfortunate enough to attend-3 -of my son's games, and I love watching him play. I also feel a sense of pride from what I hear others saying about him." Clay, Jr. said he started playing quarterback this year. "I had been a wicie receiver I like being a quarterback more, because you have more control of what's going on." Clay, Jr. said he knows he's going to college, and knows what he wants in life and what it will take to get there. ''I'm not going to allow any thing to stop me. The distrac tions will always be there You just have to know how to deal with them. I want to study Criminal Justice." Clay, Jr. said he's enter taining offers from several col leges, and has applied to Florida State University and the University of West Florida. "My father has been the most important person in my life. He's been there for me no matter what.

Clay, Sr. said his son wants to work to help out with ex penses at their apartment, but he wants him to concentrate on his career. ''I'll continue to do the best I can for him as I always have." Clay, Sr. hasn't allowed being bound to a wheelchair to slow him down. He pl ays for the Tamp a Strong Dogs Wheelchair B aske tball L eag u e "A friend got m e involv ed At first I couldn't do it b eca u se of my kids but now I can a nd we trav e l a lot It k ee ps m e fit. This is m y second year a nd I'm really enjoying it. We also play wheelchair softball." For Thanksgiving, Clay, Sr. said he'll be happy to b e sur rounded by his children, and will not do a lot of cooking. I think I'll just smoke a turkey and cook some of the trimmings. They're not going to eat a whole lot anyway, be cause they'll be too busy mov ing around. Rodrick Stevenson, Fam ily Support Service Coordinator for the Tampa Housing Authority, has been working extensively with the Clay family.


Features Two Important Boards Have No Black Representation BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel City Editor Recently Gov. Charlie Crist appointed members to two boards in Hillsborough County However, the appoint ments replaced positions previ ously held by African Americans. The new appoint ments leave both boards without any African American representation. According to information from the Governor's Office, Kenneth D. Anthony ap plied to be re-appointed to the Hillsborough County Aviation Authority. He had served two terms Additionally, Tampa resident Willie H. McCloud, who is also African American, submitted an application to serve on the board Governor Crist decided not to re-appoint Anthony nor to appoint McCloud. How eve r Board Chairman Alfred S. Austin has been ap pointed to an unprecedent e d third t e rm on the board. Although Rubin Padgett served on the board as a repre sentative for the Hillsborough County Board of Commission ers, Attorney Arthenia Joyner, became the first gu bernatorial appointee to serve when then Gov. Lawton Chiles appointed her in 1991. She served two 4-year terms When contacted by the Sen tinel, Anthony declined to comment. Thomas Huggins, III, has served on the Hillsborough Community College Board of Trustees and submitted his ap plication as a re-appointment. Stanley Gray, of Tampa, whose also Black, submitted an application to serve on the board. Governor Crist decided not to re-appoint Huggins and he also decided not to appoint Stanley. When contacted by the Sentinel, Huggins said, There has always been an interest in this board because we continue to have a need for diversity to provide insight. There is a larg e number of minority students who attend the college and there is a need for a n African American on the board to mon itor the impact in terms of edu cational access." The Governor's Office had not responded to an e-mail request for a comment as of press time. Second Annual Tree lighting Event.Set MS.

HOLTON Sentinel City Editor In r ecent wee ks, th e t o pi c o f the age in whic h wo m e n should hav e m ammograms has r a is e d concerns. N e w guidelines sugg est tha t most wom e n should get their first m ammogram at the ag e of so. A government task force releas e d the information earlier this month. The study als o suggested that self-ex a m inations do no good. The report deraile d the m e ss a ge the American Cancer Soci e ty has promoted for more than twenty years. The report caused a stir among several organizations that promote annual mammograms and self-examinations Members of the Tampa Chapter of Sisters Network wanted wom e n to know that they support current mammograms. Ms. Sonia Franklin, Vice President of Sisters Network, Inc., Tampa Bay Chapter shared her personal story to highlight the benefits MS. SONIA FRANKLIN ... Vice President, Tampa Chapter Sisters Network, Inc. of both s e lf-examinations and annual mammograms Ms. Franklin said, "We're taking the position that women should begin h a ving mammograms at 40, and in the event there is a history of cancer in the family, prior to that a ge. I was 38 years old when I discovered the lump on the side of my breast the first time through self-examination. The second time was this past summer and once again, I discovered it through selfe x amina ti o n Both w e r e a b out th e s i ze of a pea."

She further sta t e d tha t breast cance r is the most common c ancer among African Ameri cans.

Many of you will have any empty chair at the table this Thanksgiving, in honor of a loved one or family member serving overseas. Others of you may be celebrating the holiday alone for the first time in your lives. Still others of you may have difficulty finding blessings. To you who may greet Thanksgiving with a heavy heart, we extend special wishes and prayers because we understand how being thankful for the things we take for granted may not be registering with you at this time. Indeed, whatever our economic, spiritual or social status may have become, some of us fail to recognize that life could always be worse. Finally, if you have someone to share Thanksgiving with, be thankful because many of us will be spending Thanksgiving alone. Therefore, reach out to someone who could use a hug, or at least a long-distance call. Either that, or if you're able, share your dinner with someone who may be sitting, at an empty table. After all, Thanksgiving only comes once a year. But kindness lasts forever. Prison Reform Is A Need For Florida T hree cheers to )Florida Department of Corrections' Secretary Walt McNeil for his willingness to consider prison reform. Perhaps, he's been in touch with the State of Texas who decided tofdo the same thing. However, unlike Texas, our reform is being considered as a means of cutting costs instead of.an.effort to truly rehabilitate prisoners and reduce the revolving door habit of Florida inmates. Nevertheless, the end will justify the means if Florida is able to treat drug addicts and the mentally ill while they are incarcerated, thereby avoiding multiple repeat offenders from returning to prison. Unlike a few who believe prison should be reserved for anyone who commits a crime, we are convinced prison should be reserved for violent criminals and habitual offenders with no hope of rehabilitation. Victimless offenders should be considered for parole and probation as alternatives to spending $46,ooo per year to warehouse them. Like Texas, Florida hopes .to reduce its prison population by increasing substance abuse and mental health counseling and treatment, implementing residential and outpatient treatment programs, and placing more eligible prisoners on parole or probation. Presently, more than too,ooo prisoners are being warehoused in Florida prisons. Based on projected growth in the prison population, at least a billion dollars will be needed to house the new inmates over the next five years. Should Terrorists' Trial Be Held In New York; S o m e A m e ri ca n s, m os tl y R epublica n s, a r e up in arm s over Feder a l Attorney G e n e r a l Eric Holder' s d ec isi o n t o try th e 9 /11 t erro ri s ts on A m e ri ca n soil and in New York. I can understa nd th e fears of those with a sincere and genu i ne concern for the safety of America. But they have nothing to fear. I have com ple t e confidence in America to prevent terrorist Khalid Sheikh Mohammed from doing an y h a rm to America or its citizens during the trial or during their time in America. I don't beli e ve our penal sys t e m or our security system is th a t ineffective I am so not afraid of the tri a l s be in g h e l d in N ew York until it would n o t m atte r if they we r e b e in g h eld ri ght h e r e in Tampa. I don' t care w h e r e the tria l s a re h e ld or wh o tri e s th e a ccus e d terrorists as long a s justice is served. There a r e those who s a y Mohammed and his four co-defendants should not be tried in America's courts, but by a military tribunal. To those I ask, when were these five terrorists captured? Last month? I ask, why weren't they tried in military court during the last administration? In my opinion, a terrorist is a criminal and our judicial system is supposed to be Mv Aunt Gladvs nd this i s wh a t we'd have for Thanksgiving : A twenty-pound turkey, ro a sted golden brown and stuffed-to-bursting with cornbread stuffing; boliche' beef with a sausage squeezed in the middle; oven roasted picnic ham topped with pineapple rings, cherries, honey and brown sugar; macaroni and cheese, beef stroganoff, coll ard greens, candied y ams, mustard g r eens, turnip greens, string beans, potato salad, friec chicken, cranberry sauce, oven-baked biscuits, buttered rolls, cornbread thick and sweet; white rice, and for qessert we d have red velvet ca ke with white icing, coconut c a k e co conut pie swe e t pota t o pie, pec a n pie k ey -lime pi e and we'd w ash it all down with home-made ic e d tea, home-made lemonade or coffee brewed to perfection! Most eve r y dish I've mentioned was cooked by Aunt Gladys! "An't Gladys," to you! An't Gladys was my mother's sister, since my mother either couldn t cook or didn t care to cook. We never discovered which. But every y ear, around the second week of November, the Thanksgiving season around our hous e (An' t Gladys occupied the back bedroom on the second floor) became An't Gladys' opportunity to turn our home into a war zon e As of November 18th our kitchen -I guess it was our kitchen since it was part of our house was strictly off limits. An't Gladys had a wa y of snarling huffing and puffing whenever we kids would open the refrigerator and get too clo s e to some cov eted goody that was biding its time to be prepared and paraded, come Thanksgiving Day. Pie fillings were made from scratch, and then squir reled away to the back of the Frigid a ire (that's right, I said Frigidaire). Rumor has it An't Gladys even had a gopher-connection ( a man from Progress Vill a ge who used to capture turtles then kill skin and d eliver them unde r the radar of a law, w hi c h prohibit e d the slaughter of turtles, which most Black folks called "gophers. Be that as it might, we seldom had gopher served for Thanksgiving although, An't Gladys was known to have been particularly partial to possum and raccoon (lovingly referred to as Coon"). But we who lived in our house (or was it An't Gladys' house?) knew that, as of two weeks before Thanksgiving, our lives and spare time were not our own.

Then An't Gladys, Mam a and Daddy would break out paper plates, then heap each plate with the goodies pre pared the previous weeks. They would open the front door, go out on the porch and greet a small throng of homeless men, women and children, who would joyously, gratefully accept the sumptuous food and bless m y parents and An't Gladys for their kindness. Then our family would eat. That was how we celebrated Thanksgiving. We do the s ame thing, today. U'l I What do you do? )>

Retire Jordan's Jersev Numberil A Cleveland Cavaliers super star basketball player wants Michael Jordan's jersey number retired throughout the league. I think it is a great idea, but the wrong thing to do. Granted, Michael is arguably the best player in the league. A good argument can be made to retire a number of players jersey numbers. Surely, Larry Bird, Bill Russell, Oscar Robinson, Magic Johnson, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and John Stockton, to name a few, could fall into that number. Any team that wants to retire Jordan's number should be allowed to do so, but not a league-wide mandatory rule. Bucs' Morris Needs A 2nd Year Nobody in the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' football ownership has talked about firing Coach Raheem Morris after this season. Few Buc fans in the sports world have even hinted this.

The play of several young players is rea son for hope for a better next year Brett Favre Good For Vikings M a ny people criticized th e Minnesota Vikings decision to sign former Green Bay Packers' star quarterback, Brett Favre. This has proven to be a wise one. Favre has turned the Vikings into winners and a Super Bowl con tender He is also a great role model and mentor for young Tarvaris Jackson, the Vikings' quarterback of the future. Young Jackson was strug gling and inconsistent as the Vikings' starter. Now he has a chance to observe, to study and to learn from Favre.

Texans Boot Chances To Beat Rolling Titans VINCE YOUNG HOUSTON --Vince Young remained undefeated as a starter for the Tennessee Titans this season thanks to Rob Bironas and his knack for making big kicks against the Houston Texans. Rob Bironas kicked a 53yard field goal with less than a minute left and the Titans beat the Texans 20-17 Monday night for their fourth straight victory after starting the sea son with six losses in a row It was against the Texans two years ago that Bironas set an NFL record with eight field goals, including the game-v.rinner as time expired in a 38-36 win He also made a 50-yarder Monday. "I always feel good down here ... I like Houston," he said. "I don't think Houston likes me too much."

No Brown, No Problem -Rickv lifts Dolphins RICKY WILLIAMS CHARLOTTE, NC --Turns out Ronnie Brown's season-ending foot injury didn't spell doom for the Miami Dolphins and their unique offense. Ageless Ricky Williams did just fine in his place The 32-year-old Williams rushed for 119 yards and scored three touchdowns and the Dolphins beat the Carolina Panthers 24-17 on Thursday night to put tHemselves into' the AFC playoff mix after a miserable start. "Ricky ran like he was 25," Miami linebacker Joey Porter said. A day after learning Brown is finished for the year, the Dolphins (5-5) continued their surge after an 0-3 start behind Williams. The 2002 NFL rushing champion had a receiving and rushing touchdown in the same game for the first time in a career that included a couple of lost sea sons. "He's not 32, I don t care what he says," Dolphins receiver Brian Hartline said. "He definitely doesn' t look 32 out there and when he's out there he definitely has a lot of gas left in his wheels." Wildcats Fire Head coach ALVINWYATI After last weekend's embarrassing 42-6 loss to Florida A&M at the Florida Classic in Orlando, Bethune Cookman University wasted no time in firing head football coach, Alvin Wyatt. Wyatt, a Bethune Cookman graduate, coached the Wildcats for 13 years. Insiders said Wyatt's termination is really not about the string of losses to FAMU alone, but a Jess than stellar start to this season and three of the last four losing s ea sons. There had been complaints about depth in recruiting, lack of discipline and academic focus under Wyatt, but Wyatt produced players that made it to professional football. No successor to Wyatt has been named at this time.

It was his best outing with the Bills, who have lost three straight and six of eight Sims-Walker asked Owens for his jersey after the game.

Help is especially needu.. ed when one passes away. c The family of Ms. Betty Jean Currelley is seekinf help in the burial of their mother. Ms. Currelley passed away Friday; Nov 20, 2009 after a long battle with diabetes. She was 59 years old. Her daughter, Shavon Graham did not intend for this to happen, especially after she had gone through this same type situation after the death of an uncle. "When my uncle died about 2 years ago, I immediately started trying to get insurance for my mother. It seems as though when you bring up MS. BEITY JEAN CURRELLEY diabetes, insurance companies shy away," she explained. Because she was turned down by several com panies, she now finds herself in that same situation. Ms. Graham hopes to have funer al services for her mother on Saturday, December 5, 2009, with Wilson Funeral Home in charge. Ms. Currelley was a member of Word of Grace and Truth Ministries.

Crime Juveniles Charged With Burglarv, Grand Theft SHARQUAY KNIGHTON According to the Tampa Police Department, on November 8th between 5:30 p m and 8:45 p.m. the resi dence at 3715 East Deleuil was burglarized. A front window had been smashed in, allowing the suspects to unlock the deadbolt lock on thefront door. Stolen from the residence was over $2.400 in property. On November 9th, Sharquay Knighton, 14, and Kaheem Collins, 14, were brought to the Dis tri c t II Police Division and interviewed regarding several bur gl a ries that they were subsequently arrested for. During the interview with Knighton, police said his mother gave them information that led to the recovery of a l aptop computer from the burglary on East Deleuil but one in which Knighton said he wasn't involved. It was later discovered through investigation that a cell phone in Collins' poss ession on the day of his arrest had also come from that burglary. Collins was re-int e rvi ewe d and denied any involvement in the burglary. A search of Knighton's room by his mother led to the recovery of clothing stolen from the burglary. Knighton and Collins were both charged with burglary and grand theft. Bov, 14, Accused Of Stabbing Man 30 Times LAKELAND --A 14-year old bo y is accused of stabbing a homeowner in Lakeland 30 tim es during a home inva s ion. According to Lakeland police, the teen is accused of breaking into a home on Dawn Street before midnight Tue s day and attacking the resident. The boy, police say, took 55-year-old Daniel Granton's wallet and fled the .. scene, but was later caught by police. Granton suffered numerous chest wounds and remains in critical condition at Lakeland Regional Medical Center. The 14-year-old is charged with home invasion robbery, attempted felony murder and two counts of burglary. Girl Brutallv Beaten Bv Other Girls At laundromat SANFORD, FL --Sanford police are hunting for a gang of girls who brutally beat a teenager in a Laundromat. Surveillance video shows at least four girls punching and slapping the victim Sunday night. The victim is doing okay, but her entire family is badly shaken up. Sanford police are investigating the beating and looking for all six women involved, one of whom was vicious enough to slam her victim's head right into a row of industrial dryers. This is nonsense. They beat m y girl really bad," said Shante Howard, the victim 's mother. With fists flying through the air, the sprawl caught on sur-veillance video looks more like what you'd expect to see on an ice hockey rink then at a local laundromat. What's more surprising is police believe the aggressors slamming the 15-year-old girl around are all teenage girls themselves. Investigators say the fight began at a laundromat on 17/92 around 6:30pm Sunday.

If the truth be told you oftenti'mes need constant reminders to encourage you to do the right thing too. God has ordered your steps in such a way that you receive reminders about how to live and think. It is so easy to forget the blessings and promises of God when you are going through a storm or caught up in everyday living. Therefore, everyone needs to be reminded that no matter what happens or what is going on God is still in con trol. Peter wants them to remember the words spoken by the prophets and the words spoken by Jesus (vs. 2). The mention of the words spoken of by the prophets is a reference to what we know as the Old Testament. The spoken of by Jesus to the apostles points to the New Testament. Since we have both Testaments we are encouraged to recall the words of both.

Health Tips To Climatize Your Eves Most o f u s know a bout protec tin g our skin from winter 's co ld and dty weather, but our eyes are just as vulnerable to the c h a n gin g w eather. Changing temperatures, wind and low humidity can lead to the f ee ling of constantly ha v ing sand in your eyes itchin ess, r edness, % blurred vision or sensitivity to light. These signs a re often symptoms of dry eye, a disease affecting an es tim ated 20 million Americans. Try these simple tips: Tip No. 1: K ee p moisture in and smoke out of your home and your eyes-Invest in a home humidifier and us e it e very tim e you turn on the heat. Doing so will help prevent dry eye symptoms. Avoid direct contact with hot air from h ea t e rs fireplaces and smoke because these can be especially aggravating to eyes. Tip No.2: Take blinking breaks at work-Eyes become especiall y vulnerable at the office during the cooler months due to overhead vents bl as ting hot air. Additionally, too much time in front of the computer screen can lead to dty eye symptoms year-round, as the normal blink rate of 10-15 times per minute drops to four to six times per minute. To minimize symptoms at your desk, remember to blink regularly whep. staring at the-computer screen and give your eyes breaks by keeping them closed a few seconds at a time throughout the day A bottle of artificial tears kept next to your desktop computer, can be used as needed to relieve symptoms. Tip No. 3: Keep hydrated inside and out when traveling-The air in planes is drying and dehydrating, so consider using lubricating drops while on the plane. When traveling by car, remember that your car heating can also dry out eyes, so avoid having them point directly at your face When traveling to a higher alti-tude where the humidity drops, ask your hotel concierge for a room humidifier. When yo u're on the go, always keep your body and your eyes hydrated by drinking plenty of water. Tip No.4: Relief over the counter and at your doctor s office-Mild dry eye symptoms triggered by dry weather, wind and heating vents can often be reduced by using artificial tears. If you experience dry eye or are using artificial tears several times a day, visit your eye doctor, who can properly diag nose chronic dty eye and, if appropriate, may recommend prescription therapies.
