Daryl Jones, Jr. a 2005 graduate of Hillsborough High School and an outstanding wide receiver on their football team, has recently graduated from the University of. New Mexico. As a member of their football team Jones was named the most improved player, and is a former te'ammate of Tampa Bay Buccaneers linebacker:, Quincy Black. Jones 6 4", and weighing 211 pounds with a 40.5 verti cal leap, said he's gotten his Bachelor' s degree in Management and Communications, and now wants to see if he can extend his career as an athlete. As a senior, Jones, re.corded 35 receptions, scored 3 touch downs, and was voted team captain. He's returned to Tampa to workout for profes sional scouts in the area. I think the most ideal situa tion for me would be to have a great workout and run a good time in the 40S." q-" I've really been encouraged DARYL JONES, JR.NFL rosters. I appreciate the advice Quincy has given me." Playing in the Mountain West Conference didn t give Jones a lot o( East Coast exposure, but he said to be an NFL player, you have to have faith in God and in yourself "I've also managed to avoid serious injuries thro'ughout my college career. I just advise anyone seeking to extend their career to work hard at their craft if they want to make it to the next level. n Since returning to Tampa ; Jones has gone back to Hillsborough High and t a l ked with his former coach, Ea'rl Garcia. Jones said he started play ing football at the age of 8 with the Ybor City Eagles. "My big brother, Joshua Jenerette, was my biggest mentor. He got involved in football and stayed on me constantly. My little brother, Matthew Jones, is a running . back at Armw.ood :!H1,;d b;e's doing great. "My plan is to start my work outs .af!:er bo}'{l. over. I'm looking for more exposure, and maybe if I can get into the Senior Bowl, that will happen I'm also trying to contact the scouting combine to set up workouts." Jones said what's most important to him is to show the young people of Tampa that they can be successful in spite of what neighborhood they grew up in. "You have all kinds of gifts and even if it's nof football you can use that to help Y.OUrself and others. "I'd love give back by mentoring some area youth.

Many of you have no doubt, already developed a list of 2010 New Year' s resolutions. Others of you are probably lamenting the fact that you have accomplished few of your goals. You may be debating whether to try once more to turn over a new leaf. Well, we thought about the practice of making New Year' s resolutions, and we are convinced there are simple and eas y resolutions which we all can make that will make us, our families, friends and community better. So, here it goes: What would happen if w e all resolved to be mote patient; kinder and mor e pleasant to each other? Let' s resolve to smile more often, in this' New Year 2010. (Psst! Did you know smiling delays wrinkles and evilness?). An election is coming in 2010. What a wonderful opportunity to resolve to register to vote or to make certain you vote. If you have children, resolve to read to them, and to spend more positive-quality time with them. Visiting your children's schools, or making certain your children spend some time each day studying is also an excellent resolution. For all who may be struggling with weight or cholesterol problems, we could all use less salt, drink more water (even if it's strawberry flavored) and eat more fruits and vegetables, as well as eat smaller portions. Then walk around the block with a neighbor (or a rottweiller) three to four times a week. Whew! Last, but not least, resolve to love yourself more by taking time to meditate, relax and pray. Believe it or not, scientists say prayer works!-No doubt, your life and our community will benefit, if you make just three or four of these resolutions. Happy New Miranda Werning: A erotection Of Constitutional Rights I n case you missed the news, the Tampa Police Department may make national history if a lawsuit filed against the department is upheld by the United States Supreme Court. Apparently, Tampa police officers read a modified version of a Miranda warning to Kevin Powell, a previously convicted felon, after his arrest for possession of a gun. Consequently, the Florida Supreme Court threw out Powell's confession and overturned his conviction by a lower court. TPD was not happy. Claiming that their version of the Miranda warning was indeed, legal. How could history forget the 1950's and 1960s when incidents of police brutality and false arrests regularly filled newspaper front pages. However, the Miranda, et al versus Arizona Supreme Court case decision of 1966 caused a significant drop in such police-oriented inci--Mr. Obama Can You sav Jobs;J It appears th at P1csidcnt Barack O b ama i s goi n g t o get his H e;tlthc;tr e R efo r m Bill.

At 12 a. m., Frid ay morning, th e w o rld will b e officially i ss u e d a brand new s l a t e. A 10-year span tha t h as yet t o b e n a m e d but one th a t will most d e finit e l y cr e ate it's own ide ntity While the las t decade, affectionately kn ow n as th e Aughts (00-09) showcased some of our finer moments with the election of America's first Black presi dent. There were more than a few bitter instances that left our taste buds a bit tart The following are the top 9 things from that era we can do without in the next. 9.) Celebrity Reality Shows Without Real Celebrities -Flavor Flav was funny. Keyshia Cole was cool. And Ozzie Osborne was entertaining. But Kim Kardashian,. some couple with 8 kids and now a Monica? Where does the bad pr9gramming end? It was a good idea when they were documenting the lives of actual superstars and But wh .en they started giving the baby' mama's of rappers their own shows, you know they were getting into the final stages of the milking process"'; 8.) Crazy Peo.ple With Guns Maybe it was some thing in the water. But every year there seemed to be a mass shooting involving a miserable individual in need of company. It started with snipers in D C and ended with an Army doctor at Ft. Hood. People didn t to be safe anywhere. We can only pray that this insane thirst for blood doesn't becom e e v e n m o r e wid e sp r ea d 7.) America As World P olice-If th e e ntir e w o rld i s threa t e n e d by organizatio n s ope r ating inside of Iraq a nd Afg h a nistan w h y does it see m lik e U .S. soldi e rs are th e onl y o n es d y ing for th e ca u se? 6 ) A uto Tune Enh a nced Music-Jay-Z was right. They a r e 'T-Paining too muc h .' The trend of u s ing the vo ice synthesizer made popular b y Roger Troutman in the 8o's, has slowly played itself out s ince being re-introduced in 2006. It was a cool concept in the beginning. But like anything over used, it got tired.

Though it was never 'confirmed that the virus could be transmit ted by eating a pig, nobody seemed to be able to look at bacon the same way again.

Buccaneers, Coach orris Gets No Respect RAHEEM MORRIS Aft e r a lengthy trial and e rr o r p e riod, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers appear to hav e finall y gotten their f ee t b e n e ath th em. I n stead of head coach Raheem Morris, cel ebra t ing back-to-back victories, one of them an overt im e vic tory against the b es t team in the NFC, the New Orl ea ns Saints, all of the talk has been abo ut Bill Cowher replac _ing Morris next yea r Hardly any talk has been a bout the Bucs finishin g th e ir season against Atlanta and recording three-in-a-row If that' s not bad enough, sports talk radio has been blasting the Bucs about the upcoming draft and what playe rs they should se lect. Some have even suggested the Bucs should have cashed it all in after their fir s t victory against the Green Bay Packers to guarantee they g e t the first pick in the draft All of that is nonsense. Since taking over th e defen sive calls, Coach Morris has seen the Bu c defense m a k e a c omplete 180 in their performance. Las t Sunday, the Bucs held the league's most powerful offense score less for the final 43 minutes of the game. Since the replacem e nt of Jim B ates on the sideline, the Bucs have gone from allowing 3-8 yards and 29 p o int s per ga m e t o 338 and 1 -points p e r game. There' e v e n been t a lk abo u t Co"vher replaci ng Morris as h ead coac h th e n Morris stayi n g o n with th e t ea m as a defe n s ive coo rdinat o r The r e has n t bee n this mu c h backstabbing since Hugh Culverhouse owned the team and displa y ed his loyalty and appreciation for the services of Doug Williams. The Glazers appea r to be doing the sa m e thing to Morris, ad mitting they have contacted Cowher. One thing the Glazers need to understand i s the fans co ul d ca r e l ess who is walking th e sidelines. All the y ca r e about is winning. G e tting Bill Cowher doesn't guarantee any wins, especial l y with th e Glazers not wil ing to spend mon ey on the top players during free agency. If the Glazers do replace Raheem Morris next sea son let s see how that trans lates into filling the stadium f a ns season ti cke t purchases, and wins. Fans are very fi ckle, and if the Glazers do make this move, it had better come with some guarantee s. Either that, or they might as well sell the t e am to a group more inter ested in winning th a n a pop ularity contest. After Sunday s victory over the Saints, the Bucs learned they have lost Earnest Graham and Jimmy Wilkerson for the remain der of the season.

One day after Indianapolis pulled the plug on its perfect season by sitting Peyton Manning and others witp s :36 left in the third quarter of a 15-10 game, the great debate rage d in Indianapolis. NFL purists expressed disappointment that the Colts sidestepped their shot at perfection.

''I'm pne of those guys, it 's probably m y greatest strength c.nd my greatest weakness, I can focus in, I can narrow my scope, and once you make a decision you have to live with it," he said.

Terror suspect Broke Contact With Familv Before Bomb Anempt UMARFAROUK ABDULMU TAL LAB LAGOS, NIGERIAA young Nigerian man who allegedly tried to bring down a transAtlantic flight broke off contact from his worried parents only a few months before the attack, apparently trading a world of wealth for the calling of a jihadist. Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab abruptly told his family he would abandon the life that took him from a $25,000-a-year private school in Togo to a degree at an illustrious London university That message pushed his father, a prominent banker from Nigeria's Muslim-dominated north, to contact state security officials and later the U. S. Embassy in hopes of someone bringing home his missing son. We provided them with all the information required of us to enable them do this, n a family statement read Monday, without elaborating In s tead th e family said th ey awoke to n ews of the attempte d Christmas D ay attac k on the D etroit-bound Northwest Airline s flight car rying 279 p as s engers and 11 crew m e mb e rs. Hi s f amily's wealth made Abdulmutallab an educa t e d Nigerian expatriate, and h e continued to travel after alleged l y h e turned to extre m ism The 23-year old told U S. offici a ls who arrested him after the failed attempt to bring down the plane that he had sought extremist training in Yemen. Nigerian official s s aid the man's round-trip plane ticket was bought on Dec. 16 in Accra, Ghana, for $2,831 in cash, presumably by Abdulmutallab himself. Abdulmutallab's father, Umaru Abdulmutallab, pre viously said he thought his son traveled to Yemen before the attack. Abdulmutallab is being held in a (ederal prison in Michigan after suffering burns in the botched bombing. U. S authorities have said he claimed to be carrying out an attack on orders from al-Qaida

The one who was not e.\:pec t e d to come was Jesus Himself (vv. 13. 14). As much as John tri ed to deter Jesus from being bapt ized by him, Jesus had t o l et him know th a t being baptized was b igge r than them. Jesus followed the commandment and the n responded to the preach e d word. If the Lord of right eo u s n ess responded to the preached word what mus t we who are fallible do? No m a t t e r how hol y and righteous a p erson thinks he or she is he/she must still humbly submit to the word and will of God. The bl essing of fulfilling God s word is hearing Him say, This is my Son in whom I am well pleased (vs. 17). As children of God you want to do what is necessary to hear God say, He is well pleased with you. You want God to be pleased with you because you were willing to repent and be baptized. You want God to see that you did not allow situations, circumstances, or personal flaws hinder you from repenting, being baptized, and making preparation for the kingdom that is at hand.

Each grape represents a different month, so if r instance the third grape is a bit sour, M arch might be a rocky month. For most, the goal is to swallow all the grapes before the last stroke of midnight, but Peruvians insist on taking in a 13th grape for good measure. In addition to the aforemerttioned lucky foods, there are also a few to avoid. Lobster, for instance, is a bad idea because they move backwards and could therefore lead to setbacks. Chicken is also discouraged because the bird scratches back wards, which could cause regret or dwelling on the past. Another theory warns against eating any Winged Fowl because good luck could fly away. Now that you know what to eat & what not to eat, there's one more superstition. In Germany, it's customary to leave a little bit of each food on your plate past midnight to guarantee a stocked pantry in the New Year. Likewise in the Philippines, it's important to have food on the table at midnight. The conclusion? Eat as much lucky food as you can, just don't get too greedy-or the first plac e you'll be going in the new year is the gym. For All Your Seafood Delights, Call In Your Order To Avoid The Wait!

Health Shedding Light On Seasonal Affective Disorder H ave yo u eve r n otice d th a t a t this time o f year you're m o r e l e th a r g i c hm e a harder time waking up, have low energy, or feel a lit t l e d o wn? You might have Seasonal Affecti v e Disorder (SAD). Other symptoms o f SAD are: soci al withdrawal; appetite changes ; a craving for food s high in carbo h ydra tes ; weight ga in; difficulty concentrating and processi n g information; anxiety; loss of interest in activiti es yo u once enjoye d ; or hop e l essness. SAD is actually a kind of depression that is triggered by the change of seasons, usually beginning in late fall and continuing through the winter months. For milder cases of SAD, the natural increase of light that comes with spring and summer is all that is needed to lift the spirits and melt away the funk. But f o r others m o re s erio u ly affect e d more help i s n ee ded. Wome n are much more lik e !\' than m e n t o expe1i e ne e SAD, esp ecially th ose o f u s in the darker northern tier states wh e r e sunlight i s m os t reduced a t this time of year. Many SAD sufferers e xtoll the virtues _of light therapyexposure to simulated sun' light to help support the n a tura l functioning of the circadian rhythm. Herbal supplementation of Melatonin or Seratonin also is deemed effective. However, it is important for your regular healthcare professional or a mental health specialist to provide a proper evaluation. Do You look.Oider Than You Should; Certain habits and behaviors increase the risk of premature skin aging. Avoiding them can help keep your skin l ooking y ounger, longer. Another Top Cause of Wrinkles; Smoking Beyond question, smoking is b a d for your skin. Smoking accelerates the agi ng process; wrinkling skin and making you look old beyond your years. Facial Muscle Contractions Cause Wrinkles Wrinkles at the corners of the eyes (crew's feet) or between the eyebrows (frown lines) are thoughts to be caused by small muscle contractions. Over a lifetime, habitual facial expressions like frowning, smi mg, or squinting leave their mark on our skin. Sleeping Positions May Cause Wrinkles The way you sleep may actually cause wrinkles. No matter how soft your pillow is it puts pressure on your face each night. Over years, this can etch lines into your chin, cheeks; or forehead. Your personal pattern of sleep lines depends on how you tend to rest your face on the pillow. Vitamin A Helps To Maintain And Repair Skin Tissue What you can do: eat a balanced, healthy diet full of fresh fruits and vegetables. Five to seven servings a day are best. Tomatoes have Biot i n and vitamin C, carrots provide Biotin and vitamin A, and green leafy vegetables and almonds are loaded with vitamin E. And Don't Forget Water As we age, skin becomes thinner and drier. It becomes more important than ever to drink plenty of water, to keep skin hydrated and full. The link Between Asthma '! . 1 r And Sinusitis Along with all the problems caused by asthma, having sinusitis -or sinus infections -can be tough to handle. While there are many sinuses in your body, the term is often used to refer to the paranasal sinuses. These are a group of four hollow cavities in your face, near the cheeks and e ye s They're connected to the nasal passageways and .help warm up, moisten and filter the air you breathe in. Sinusitis is the swe lli ng or infection of these sinuses. Common triggers of sinusi tis incl u de: A cold or viral infection Air pollution, smog Airborne allergens Dry or cold air Ozone When the tissue in the sinuses gets irritated, it produces mucus. If enough mucus and trapped air builds up, you feel painful pressure in the sinuses. These are the familiar signs of a sinus headache. .Symptoms of sinusitis vary, c;lepending on which sinuses are affected. But some common signs are pain in these areas: Forehead Upper jaw and teeth Area around the e y es Neck, ear, and on the top of the head Severe sinusitis can also cause: Thick yellow or green mucus Bad-tasting postnasal drip Sore throat Fever Weakness Fatigue Cough Usually, sinus infections are caused b y viruses like a cold virus. But if the sinuses have been blocked for too long, bacteria can in v ade, causing a secondary infection. Having multiple sinus infections can lead t o chronic (long-term) sinusitis.

Talisha Atlanta, GA Positioned To Win In 2010 Empowered N e w Year's greeting s We closed last year by encouraging you to do some prior proper planning, by developing a life plan and setting goals. Now it's time for action. It's time to get in position to win in 2010. To be properly positioned means you are strategicall y occupying the right place at the appropriate time. To win is to achieve victory. Developing a life plan and setting goals positioned you to achie ve victory in those areas. However, having a plan means nothing if you don't execute it. There is a saying, that there are three kinds of people in the world. Those that make things happen, those that watch things happen and those that wonder what hap pened. Which one are you? Are Monitor Your Child's Computer With Ease One of the biggest concerns today is what our children are doing when they connect to the internet. Are they talk ing to strangers, downloading illegal content, or watching X-rated material? Monitoring your child's computer activity does not have to be time consuming, or even frustrating. It also does not mean you have to run out and purchase any expensive piece of software to add to your computer. There are many child monitaring programs on the market designed to effectively keep tabs on your children s online foot prints. Lately, I came across a wonderful program Norton Online Family. The program safely monitors the activity of a child without disrupting the normal flow of your computer tasks. It is also very eas y to learn and does not eat up too much space from your computer' s hard drive. Many parents will ask what's wrong with using the Jt'.; );Pod \'Llllr c o ns c ielll't' L )> is id,ing \"l)ur h,hind.

To be a winner you mu s t b e consi s tent. You must hav e a positive attitude. You must think winning thoughts. You mus t obstacles, face your fears and drown your doubts. Winners are persistent in studying their craft and committed to tra in ing. Winners are in pursuit of excellence. Whether they like it or not, winners do what is necessary, not what is com fortable. Are you in position to win? If not, now is the time for you to STOP waiting and START winning. Join me next column as I continue to empower you to win in 2010. Windows Vista or 7's parental controls. The answer is there is no reason to stop using the parental controls in Windows Vista or 7 if yo u are happy with the integrated functions of win do ws. The difference with Norton Online Family and Windows Vista and seven's parental controls is that the activities of your child is not stored to your PC, but instead recorded online. Norton will provide you the parent with secure access to an online account so you can then view your son or daughter's activity without arousing su spi cion. The Norton program gives the parent power to decide what content should be viewed, who they can talk to and what information they are permitted to share. But the best part of the Norton Online Family is that you can get it for free at onlinefami ly.norton.com. Reverse Monuaues Q.
