Former Restaurant Owner Wants To Help Area Youth BY LEON B. CREWS Sentinel StaffWriter The City of Tampa and Hillsborough County has sev e ral youth programs set up to k ee p young people focused and interested in b e ing pro ductive. Thousands of inner city youth have taken advan tage of these programs. Nettie Henderson, former owner of Quincy's Restaurant, said 'she's con cerned about the young people who fall through the cracks and for whatever reason and aren't interested in those programs. "We can't turn our backs on our young people and expect them to figure it all out by themselves. They need guidance and advice, and that's when we need to step in and give it to them." Ms. Henderson wants help in setting up something that will draw in the young people who need the help the most. "I understand that it's hard to get a lot of them to accept help or admit they need help. It' s up to us to make it avail able to them. We just can' t walk away and give up, Nettie Henderson {right) and her daughter, Andrea. because there's been too much of that going on already." Ms. Henderson said she knows the task will be tremendous, but she's willing to get involved, but she can't do it all by herself. "I need help. I need other adults to join me and let s try to save our young people from themselves and each other." "Our young people are killing each other for no reason, because they place no value on life. We've got to show them just how vahiable life is and what it means to live as long as God will per mit." OMASl F l YOHO --lJ) _ _ } "Serving The Community Since 1947" DidYou.Know That .....

Haitian Ambassador Visits Tampa BY LEON B. CREWS Sentinel StaffWriter On Thursday, Haitian Ambassador Raymond Joseph ar rived in Tampa for a town hall meeting. The meeting was for the purpose cif giving citizens an opportunity to ask questions on the current state of Haiti and on plans for the future. Sania Grandchamp, spokesperson for the dor and a DJ from Haiti, said they are still working to get do nations together and they 'v e sent several containers to Haiti already. "We're working with several organizations and we're looking to fly to Haiti within the next two weeks. On the report that some areas of Haiti aren't getting the help they need, Grandchamp said unfortunately that's true. RAYMOND JOSEPH Haitian Ambassador The reason Port-Au-Prince has gotten all of the attention is be cause it is accessible. Travel is very difficult right now, so some of the towns have been difficult to reach, even with helicopters. "This is an extremely difficult t ime for all of us especially those trying to provide aid to the victims of the earthquake. Grandchamp said they all appreciate the aid and prayers given to the Haitian people, and SANIA GRANDCHAMP asks that everyone to do whatever they can to help the devastated families. "Although they called off the search for victims, bodies are still being pulled out from un-. derneath crushed homes and buildings. This process will be going on for a while, and we need everyone's indulgenc e and patience as we continue our ef forts to put Haiti back together and restore some kind of order.

Dragons And Crusaders Heading To State Two Hillsborough County girls basketball teams are headed to the girls' state basketball tournament, the Tampa Catholic Crusaders and the Jefferson Dragons. The Crusaders (28-2) will make their second straight appearance. They will play Tallahassee Rickards in the 3A semi-finals at 2:30 p. m., Wednesday. The Crusaders are back with most of the members from last year's team. The story of the state tournament has to be the run of Coach Tom Mosca's Lady Dragons. The Lady Dragons (28-3) will be making their first ever appearance at state. The Dragons got derailed one game short of the state last year by Boca Ceiga of St. Petersburg While Coach Mosca did not say it, the look on his face was that of a man who was confident he and his team would be at state this year. The' Jefferson ladies won their district and their region games. Now, they are after the state crown. They will go to work on Friday at 11:30 a. m. when they take on Pensacola High. The Dragons earned their state berth by blasting a good Barron Collier team 66-41. Leading scorer, Laurie Beatty scored 1S points while Shayla Wilson pulled down 22 rebounds. The Dragons' offense is directed by senior, Jade Givens, a coach on the floor. Chantel Frazier and Benee Glanton, both provide the Dragons with a strong inside game. Shayla Upshaw and Vanessa Vinson head up a strong and deep bench. Coach Mosca pulls the strings for the Dragons and Coach Nancy Kroll pulls the strings for the Crusaders. St. Petersburg Boca Cel.ga will also make their second straight appearance to state Boca has a record of 29-1 and has won 22 straight games. They will compete in the sA class. Winter Haven another Tampa Bay area team, will also compete at state in sA. The state tournament will b e played in Lakeland at the Lakeland Civic Center. The tournament starts Wednesday the 24th and runs through Saturday the 28th. Two other county teams fell one game short of the state tournament. Those two teams were Sickles, who lost to Boca in the regions final and Cambridge. This could be a banner year for our city. Chances are very good that two state champions could reside in Tampa. -:lauazine, AT& 1 Donate. .$3,000 To Linle League I I I The Tampa Bay's Cigar City Magazine and AT&T will present a $3,000.00 donation to West Tampa Little League during the league's season opener on Saturday, February 27th at 9a.m. The donation will help pay registration fees for players whose families could not otherwise afford them.

as Pleads Not Guiltv wing Kelis $200,000 In Child Suppon can't seem to get a not guilty to con court, in a proceeding for his bitter divorce from Kelis. Kelis' lawyers allege that Nas has failed to pay $2oo,ooo in court ordered child and spousal support. Nas was ordered last year to pay $51,000 monthly in child and spousal support. The judge will make his decision in March and if Nas is found guilty, he could be the next rapper headed to jail. The couple has one child together, Knight, who was born last year. Kelis has also since signed with Interscope and Black Eyed Peas front man Will.i.am's label Will.i.am Music Group. Fantasia Barrino Called Out In Hate Mail Threat Pantages Theater in Los Angeles.

Police were immediately notified and security has been increased around the venue and precautions and inspections are being con-ducted on everything sent to her dressing room. Tax Problems Haunting Eve EVE Eve is having one hell of a February as reports surfaced that the first lady of Ruff Ryders owes more than $357,000 in delinquent state and federal taxes. Records show that the rapper turned actress owes the state of California, who filed a lien against her on Jan. 29, 2009; $29,059This will make the second lien filed since 2008 with the Los Angeles County Recorder of Deeds. This may explain why she has decided to sell her Hollywood Hills home, which according to published reports was built only 5 years ago. In addition to Los Angeles County, Eve also reportedly owes the IRS a total of more than $271,684 for liens filed since 2008. She recently announced in January that she left Interscope/Geffen/ A&M Records in search of a new label. Although label-less, the Philly bred MC is still busy making music.
