CREWS Sentinel StaffWriter On Thursday, August 121", former University of South Florida Student Adviser, Myrtice Landers, concluded a medi ate d settlement with th e school. Mrs. Landers had b ee n dismissed from her position as adviser in the school's Athletic Department following accusa tions she had committed a sec ondary NCAA violation that involved a female athlete. Mrs. Landers hired Attorney Wil Florin following her dismissal and immediately alleged she was being raciall y discriminated against b y USF's Athletic Department She also alleged the school was using her to cover up NCAA viola tions. Atty. Florin said they have settled the case. She's been reinstated and will be working with the dean of Undergraduate Studies with a brand new office, and. her re tirement is no longer threat ened. MYRTICE LANDERS What she wanted was to be reinstated, because she had so much at stake. She would have lost half her retirement if she had been terminated. She 's now looking forward to work ing in her new department. That's what we were looking for. Atty. Florin said during the six-hour mediation l as t week, he submitted a 9-page report of NCAA violations committed by white players that went unre ported. "That brings to question why they wanted to go after Mrs. Landers for alleged violations that involved an African American athlete? "The 9 pages of violations is something the school will have to deal with separately and she is a witness in that investiga tion." Mrs. Landers said she's relieved it's over. Everything turned out al right. When I was dismissed, it was the intent that I lose m y tenure. My attorney gave me the confidence to believe this could be taken care of. I did a lot of praying about this, and I knew things would turn around. You have to trust that the truth will come out. Mrs. Landers said she will no longer be working directly with students, but more in the area of research and develop ment. I have to give my family a lot of credit for being there for me. I had their support all the way. I have five children all here in Tampa, and they al lowed me to vent my frustra tions and I owe them a lot."

I am a firm believer in reli gious freedom. That belief carries over to every religion While this country must ride the freedom of religion train, we always remember that America was founded as a Christian nation. Because this is so, this country must not ever abandon its Chris tian principles That fear is a basic concern of mine and millions of oth ers. The freedom of religion principle has taken prayer out of our schools, elimi nated some government bod ies from praying before they meet, and pitted one religion against others. Right this minute, the na tion is being ripped apart by a religious controversy over freedom of religion. The con troversy stems around whether or not Islamic wor shippers should be allowed to build a religious temple near Ground Zero in New York. Ground Zero is the site of the destroyed World Trade Center. Some followers of Islam are believed to be the perpetra tors of this terrible act. Therefore, so many believe that an Islamic Temple should not be built so close to Ground Zero. I respect the feelings of these people, but I also be lieve that the government should not and cannot stop the building from being erected The religious freedom of H. P. And The Shriners And there I was, in my favorite seat at my fa vorite greasy spoon, about to enjoy my favorite breakfast which consisted of two eggs over-easy (do-not burst the yolk), three silver-dollar pan cakes, a duo of sausage pat ties and a sea of syrup, when in dragged m y sometime buddy Jay Algonquin Hines (better known as Hineparts to people who don t like him that much). But this morning SOIJlething was wrong with Hineparts. He was missing his old love hate snarl, and his eyes looked like the tail lights of a 1954 Packard, round and red. With a pen dulous bottom lip, Hines slid in opposite me and ogled my coffee pot. I poured him a cup. After a long s lurp of java Hineparts riveted me with his soupy eyes and moaned, Maaan am I tir d!" "Tired?" I echoed. W ll, I haven t see n you sine last Saturday, and this i s Friday. So, what in the world hav e you b ee n doing all we k?" Doing?" r e peat d Hines. Doing ?' said Hines, again. Man, I been hangin out with a good friend who is a member of the National A. E. A. 0 N. M. S.!" The WHAT? I sputtered! "You heard me, Hines said, then thought better of it and added, "I forget you in tellectual types might not know anything about the A. E. A. 0 N. M_ S. So, I am talkin about the Prince Hall Shriners!" Ohhh, I replied. So, that' s where you were all week!" Hineparts looked at me with bleary-eyes, took an other long slob of coffee and half-whispered, "I don't know where I've been, but I think I been everywhere! Heck I don t even know how I got here sitting with you. But I do know one thing: Them some partying' people and I surely do want to be one of .them when I grow up!" I looked at Hineparts. .studied him clo ely. Then I said "If you r talking about the same A. E. A. 0. N M. S. organization, I'm familiar with, bett r known as the Ancient Egyptian Arabi Ord r Nobl Mysti hrin Incorporated, p rhap ou need to realiz that th y do a the religious sect has to be protected under the 'laws of the United States Constitu tion. As important as that issue is, that is not what pushes my hot button the most. I am most concerned about the fact that prayer has been removed from all public schools in the United States. For years, school started every morning with a devo tional period. Every child was required to bow their hE:ads for a moment of prayer. No child was required to pray, but just to respect the moment of prayer. That de votion period was the only link to religion for many chil dren. Especially those who did not experience prayer at home and did not go to church. I could be wrong, but I be lieve that the morale attitude of many children was en hanced by those mornings of prayer at school. I sure wish the Supreme Court would re consider its position on prayer in public schools. lot more than party." Hineparts looked at me as if to say Oh Lawd here comes another sermon! But I continued anyway. For your information, Prince Hall Shriners are dedicated to th e principle of fostering civic, economic and educa tional development pro grams throughout the worl d .' Furthermore, Prince Hall Shriners have raised more than $30,000 for the Haiti Relief fund gave money for a National Diabetes Education initiative, created a Shriners as-Mentors program for African American teenagers, provided scholarships for low-income students who hoped to attend college or trade schools, and in the time they'd been in the City of Tampa, were estimated to have dropped more than $8 million on businesses and hotels around the Tampa Bay Area. So," said I to my bloodshot eyed friend, "the A. E. A. 0 N. M.S. as you call themwho came to Tampa more than 15,000 strong --' is far more than simply an organi zation of goodtime and dances! Hineparts finished his cup of coffee and would have poured him elf another cup if I hadn t mov d the pot th n aid in a v ry obliviou voi Maaan thffin hrin rs ur know how to party! I ju t lo k d at Hineparts and hook m head.

That means thousands of families will be reunited and an injection of new and improved blood ready to re energize the community. But with every success story we hope to hear about in the coming months and years, we all know that there will be a few individuals who c will, undoubtedly, find it a: hard to go the straight and LL narrow. For these people who may be inclined to pick ct up another sack when the going gets rough, I've put C together a list of things they ffi may want to consider if the :::> temptation to return to their previous lifestyles proves too a: hard to resist 1.) Before you contemplate W returning to a life of crime, fi} think about the process you :I: went through in the beginning of your last bid. m Remember the too tight handcuffs, the cold holding z cells and the sick feeling you i= got in your stomach when w ...J ...J :::> m I ...J w z i= z w en ct c a: 0 ...J LL somebody showed yo u how much time you were facing under federal guidelines? It will all be waiting for you. 2.) Repla y in your mind the incompetence you encountered dealing with your court appointed public defender and how it made you feel when the high priced attorney you hired to make a difference, sold you down the river without so much as a "so long sucker!" 3.) Think about how crazy U. S. P. Atlanta looked the first time you had to go through there during transit. Remember the stale bologna bus sandwiches, the trash talking guards, the extremely hot (or cold depending on the time of the year) cells and the mice who would come under the door to check on you every once in a while? 4.) Remember the joy and pain that came with visitation. You loved to see your family come, hated to see them l eav e and endured th e shame of being stripped search by a male corrections officer who seemed to e njo y his job a littl e too much? 5.) Refl ect on all of the confrontations that you were able to avoid that could have ended with you taking someone else's life or them taking yours. Either way, your situation could have been so much worse. 6.) Think about all the men you met along th e way who you knew were never going home, regardless of how many law s chang e d and how thankful you w e re to not be in their s ho e s. 7.) Remember how depressing it was to calculate how old you would be when you got out and how you monitored the movements and health of guys in that age range to get a glimpse of what your future may be like. 8.) Last, but not least, whatever you do, never forget that this second chance you've received is truly a blessing. The prosecutor and agents who worked to have you put away are not happy with your early release. Rest assured that if you ever return across their paths, they' ll spare no expense in attempting to hide you in the system like an unwanted Easter egg. And, who in their right mind would want to go through that type of experience all...over. .. again?

Voted after having Rights Restored BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel City Editor On Tuesday, August 24th, Hillsborough County voters will cast ballots in the Primary Elections. However, a large segment of the population won't be allowed to participate in the process. Th ese individuals lost their rights to vote after having recei ved a felon y conviction. However, Ms. Tonya Lewis wants people to know that it is possible to have your voting rights restored. "Monday was a joyous occasion for me. I voted for the first time. My right to vote was taken away 20 years ago and now my right has been restored. I'm showing you, you can," Ms. Lewis said. A native of Miami, Ms. Lewis said she left home at the age of 13 and never returned At the age of 18 she was arrested and charged with two felonies. The judge sentenced her to 7 years in prison followed by probation . It was while in prison that she realized that she had to change herself. "I got my GED while I was in prison and I served 1 year and 1 month. In 2004, I successfully completed 14 years of probation. Ms. Lewis said she ran with the wrong crowd, she made mistakes, but in the end, she took responsibility for her own actions. "I'm not ashamed of my past. But, I didn't have to prove myself to society, I had to prove myself to me. I had to prove that I was not going to be a statistic, and I am not going to be a part of the problem, but part of the solu tion. I want people to know where I came from and where I am today. And that's why I do what I do. She also uses this opportunity to encour age others to have their rights restored and to take advantage of the voting process. We are an "A11 .School Mt.

Election 2010 State Demo Chair Told More Work Needed To Get Vote Out KAREN THURMAN ... Chair, State Democratic Party BY GWENDOLYN HAYES Sentinel Editor When Karen Thurman, Chairman of the Democratic Party for Florida, met with the Sentinel Editorial Board on Monday, she was told that more work needed to be done to get the vote out during this crucial election year. Ms. Thurman, who was flCCompanied by Gayle Andrews, Political Consultant, made stops along the I -4 Cor ridor (she also stopped in St. Pete) to encourage voters to get to the polls in this nonpresidential election year. Later in the day, she was in Orlando and Miami. Ms. Thurman, who served in Congress for 10 years, agreed that this is a critical election year, especially for the Democratic Party. Shere-fleeted on 2006, another crit ical election year, when the Democrats picked up seats in the House. She stated that the hands of State Democratic Parties are tied because their funds for outreach are limited. We have to rely on volunteers and trips that I can take like this to cover several areas at once she explained. Board member, Wilbert Malphus and Publisher Kay Andrews want the party to make more of an e ffort to reach out to the grassroots community. Andrews also suggested to the chair that the Party talk about its positives throughout the state all of the good things they have been able to do for and with Democratic candidates and elected offi cials, instead of counterattacking what other parties are saying. Randolph Kinsey talked about the importance of get ting the African-American vote out. He even suggested that the Party concentrate on a special effort to get the Black vote out. Gayle Andrews told the Board that a Unity Rally is planned in Tampa on August 28 to regionalize the message of the importance of getting out to vote.

HOLTON Sentinel City Editor During a presidential elec tion year, more voters gener ally cast ballots. However, during the years when candi dates for local offices are elected the voter turnout is usually very low. Community Activist Marvin Knight feels that citi zens should be just as concerned about who will make decisions affecting their lives as they are about electing a president. "In 2008, we went to the polls in numbers to vote and we felt good about it. I feel that a lot of positiv e things came out of that election. But, that is not all we have to do, there is more to be done. We must continue to stay in volved in the process, espe cially when we are voting in local races. The local elections are MARVIN KNIGHT ... Urges Others To Vote very important because we choose the people who will make decisions about our lives. I'm appealing to everyone who can to get out and vote. If you don't vote during early voting, then go to the polls on Tuesday.

'T1 ocal Mother Of Murder Victim Citv, countv g Feels Thev Are Ignored Panhandling Wanda Gilchrist wants to know where is the lov e? She is the mother of murder victim, Derek Anderson, and said she feels her family, as well as the family of Harold Wright, another murder victim, have been dis respected b y the media and the people of Tampa. "It seems to us the same man (Dontae Morris) that killed the two officers, isn t the same one who killed Derek and Harold." Ms. Gilchrist sai d s h e spent her entire life sav ing s buryin g her son. This isn t fair. No one reach ed out to us at all. I've been out of wo rk since 2008. I was drawing unemploym ent, but that has stopped.

They wanted everything from us about Derek, and we C 2010 AT&T Intellectual Property. AU rights reserved. obliged them. After Morris was arrested and donations started coming in for the po li ce wives, we were ignored. Ms. Gilchrist, who still lives at K enneth Court where her son was killed, said she wants to move b eca use of the memories and fear of something lik e this happening again. Ms. Gilchrist said she thanks Daphne Stephens, who organized a fundraiser for her and Wright's family.

On August 41", the Board of County Commissioners ad dressed the problem of panhandling in Hill s borough County, and are working on a new ordinance Currently there is a city or dinance and county ordinance that addresses panhandling. The y differ in some areas, but both address the i ss ue of public safety. According to the City of Tampa's Panhandling Ordi n a nce a violation i s anyone who threatens intimidates, or harasses people for purposes of solicitation. It also specifies that no person under the age of 18 shall participate in any solicitation in the right-of-way, and all so licitation shall occur during daylight hours only. Persons engaging in solicitation rna only engage with motorized vehicles that are lawfully stopped on paved roadway. All persons participating in the solicitation must wear an OSHA or ANSI approved orange or other brightl y colored safety shirt, jacket or vest.

I thought she was too young at first, but she picked it up so quickly, I just took a MARQUIA TRIGG step back and let her go for it. "Her involvement in sports is something she pick e d up from h e r dad. She watched all the football and other sport ing events with him, and it was only natural she got in volved. Marquia said h e r mother tells her it' s her calling to be a blessing to others. "My most proud moment was when a small group of us play e d for people livin g with HIV /AIDS.

Burney has been trying to clear his name. He has turned down plea bargains, claiming he has done nothing wrong and refuses to tak e a plea. It all began for Burney on June 24, 2009. Testimonies have been given in severa l dep ositions, seve ral court dates have been set and held, several others postponed; trial dates have been set and rescheduled; and, a video of the case disap peared and reappeared Through it all Burney has maintained his innocence. As a routine, Burney, a hauler sa id he d stop at a Rall y BP station on 4th St. No., for coffee, gas and genera l conver sation with the clerk. The morning of June 24 2009, the clerk and a gentleman at the coffee machine were the 2 peo ple in the store, Burney claims. I said to the clerk not loudly, why do the white people don't speak on the north side ? The man said to me 'I'm offended .' I said to him I'm not talking to you, sir, wou ld you please stay out of my business .... This is an A&B conversation." Words continued between the two and Burney said he feared for his life, not knowing this person. Burney pur chased a soda and left the store. Once outside he realized his intention to get gas andre-This Is a F REE pro g rnm for low-Income fa mille and priority I given to the elder! disabled and famlllc with children under age llllvlngln the bomc. turned to the store. Conv e rsation between the 2 gentlemen continued and esca lated. Eventually, Burney was placed under arrest and charged with battery on a law enforcement officer, by an offi cer that Burney' says never identified himself as an officer. According to the St. Peters burg Police Dept. report the law enforcemen t officer involved was an offduty Sher-iffs Deputy Bryant Duncan. The officer told the investigat ing St. Pete police officer, James Griffis, that Burney entered the store yelling ob scenities and that there were numerous customers in the convenience store. The officer also said he told Burney to calm down and identified him self several times as a law en forcement officer. Somewhere during the con frontation, Burney told the of ficer he d have him fired. Available Video The officer taking statements said he reviewed surveillance tapes. When an officer went to get the tape in late October 2009, he was told that a Public Defender unknown) had picked it up. Since that time the computer sys tem that held the surveillance had crashed and there was no duplicate of the video, the manager stated. Just recently the video reap peared.

<( I co T"" w (!) Favre savs Shot At Super Bowl Brought Him Back To Vikings BRETIFAVRE EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. As far as Brett Favre was concerned, he was finished Last we saw the 40-year-old quarterback in action, he was barely able to walk off the Superdome turf, his body aching from the beating the New Orleans Saints delivered in January 's NFC title game. Favre was one pla y away from his goal -taking the Minnesota Vikings to the Super Bowl when he threw an interception in the final minute of regulation, then watched from the sidelines as the Saints kicked the winning field goal in overtime. Ryan Longwell, Steve Hutchinson and Jared Allen, his three closes t friends on the team, unexpectedly arrived at his doorstep on Monday night "We need an answer, yes or no," they told Favre. "We re e ither going home with you or moving on without you So h e r e we are, with Favre about to start his 2oth NFL season. Jets' Rvan: Dungv unfairlv Judged' TONY DUNGY And REX RYAN CORTLAND, N.Y.-Rex Ryan wants Tony Dungy to know he's more than just a foul-mouthed coach. Dungy criticized the New York Jets coach earlier this week for his Rex-pletive-filled appearance on the premiere episode of HBO's "Hard Knocks. " The thing is, I've been a big admirer of Tony Dungy, and I'm sure a lot of people are," Ryan said Wednesday. I felt that h e unfairl y judged m e, and th a t was disa ppointing to me."

Dungy, who won a Supe r Bowl with Indianapolis is an NFL ana lyst for NBC. Ryan said h e called Dungy and left a message that included his telephone num ber, and anticipated hearing back from him. Redskins Alben Havneswonh Sidelined Again ALBERT HAYNESWORTH ASHBURN, VA Washington Redskins defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth has been sidelined for another practice, this time with lingering effects from dehydration. Haynesworth was a spectator again during Wednesday's workout. He stood to the side, flipping through the pages of a play book titled "Washington R edskins Defense 2010 Training Camp. Haynesworth had to stop practicing early during Tuesday s session. Coach Mike Shanahan said he didn t think at the time that it was heat-relate d because Haynesworth was only out there for about 10 minutes. The trainers later said Haynesworth was indeed dehydrated Ex-Eagle Westbrook Signs With 49ers SANTA CLARA, CA Brian Westbrook so wants to be part of a winning team that he accepted a BRIAN backup job WESTBROOK across the country with the San Francisco 49ers The 49ers signed the free agent running back to a oneyear deal Monday with a reported $1.25 million guaranteed, giving Westbrook the second chance he's been seeking in recent months. The St. Louis Rams, Dallas Cowboys and Washington Redskins were other teams considering Westbrook, who ultimately said hl.s decision wasn't all about money at this stage. San Francisco finished 8-8 last season and will settle for nothing less than reaching the playoffs this year. Sign-And-Trade Most likelv For Anthonv What is the fate of Carmelo Anthony? The most likely scenario would be a sign-CARMELO and-trade. ANTHONY Anthony would sign the Nuggets $65 million offer and then Anthony and his agent, Leon Rose, would work with the Nuggets to find a trading partner. Most teams trading for Anthony won't likely do the deal unless he' s already signed to the extension. The Nuggets would also want him signed because it would increase Melo's trade value. Anthony is believed to want to play on the East Coast where he grew up. His wife yearns for the big-city spotlight, and in all likelihood the Knicks and Nets would be two franchises who would be interested.

Sports :x:1 James Wilder Jr. Commits_ To FSU, Spurns Fl And GA Wallace, Pierce Spar Over 'Sheed Retirement Talk PAUL PIERCE And RASHEED WALLACE JAMES WILDER, JR. Paul Pierce isn't buying that Rasheed Wallace is done. When asked by CSNNE.com about whether hi s NBA career was indeed wrapped up, Wallace responded, "like Christmas." James Wilder Jr. just committed to attending Florida State University next Fall. With James Wilder Jr. attending Florida State, he has created a whole host of new fans who can't wait to see him take the field. In that same instance, though, Wilder may have created a whole new set of people who also want to see him fail when he finally takes the field. Wilder is considered to be the best running back in high school football right now, but maybe that isn't saying a whole lot when he is just heading into his senior year of high school. Still, any college landing a player with his raw tools is gaining an advantage, and Florida State just gained that advantage. But there were also some losers on Wednesday night. It seemed like Wilder was going to commit to play for the Georgia Bulldogs or Florida Gators. Both SEC schools thought that they were just battling with eac h other to get Wilder to commit, but instead he has spurned them both to join Florida State for the 2011 col lege football season. Wallace declined to comment further, but all indica tions are that the former All Star will call the Boston area home for most, if not all of this seaso n As long as Wallace remains in the area, rumors about a possible return won't totally go away despite the Celtics waiving him last week and him indicating that he is indeed retired. You can count Pierce among those who thinks a Wallace return to the Celtics will happen sometime prior to the playoffs, despite Wallace insisting that he's done play ing.

It's the same question he's been get ting for the past few weeks. "So, why didn't you pick the Bulls?" Hey, when you 're a native son of Chicago and you rebuke the advances of your hom etown team, that's a fair question. And the newly re signed Miami Heat guard full y expects to be on the receiving end of it often between now and Sunday, while hosting a number of charity-themed events to help underprivileged kids. "I expect to hear that for a while." Wade's World Foundation will hold events involving more than 1,000 children. "But kids are fans of the game of basketball and fans of certain players as well. They think it's cool in a way. It's moreso the adults who don't understand why you didn t c hoose their cities." Wade became a free agent July 1, and met with the Bulls twice, eventually conceding that he was deeply torn between offers from Miami and Chicago Even his family couldn't come to a consensus on where the 2006 NBA finals MVP should spend the next few seasons playing. Chris Bosh picked Miami Wade quickly decided to join him and one day later, LeBron James gave the DWYANEWADE Heat a triple sweep of the three biggest prizes available during this summer's freeagent period. So now, Wade finds himself in the delicate balance of enjoying Chicago rwhile trying to avoid the city's disappointment. c "What ever jersey I'm wear-)> ing, I'm still here," Wade said. I'm still in the commu-z nity I think I'm doing some-=! thing impactful and bigger than the game of basketball It r;had nothing to do with llJ Chicago. It had nothing to do with the Chicago Bulls.

The Miami Heat forward s lawyer believes that should vindicate the NBA veteran Eric Schwartzreich, Haslem's attorney, said Monday that the State Attorney s Office is reviewing the arrest paperwork, a process that should be completed in the coming days. Haslem was arrested Sunday afternoon and charged with possessing more than 20 gram of marijuana a third degree felony, along with four counts of possessing drug paraphernalia Haslem was freed from custody late Sunday night. Haslem's 2008 Mercedes sedan was arched multiple time and marijuana was eventually found in a blue nylon bag that the Heat player's passenger, Antwain Fleming, said belonged to UDONIS HASLEM him.

BIRTHDAY MEMORIAM LELIA S. WILLIAMS November 22, 1922-August 22, 2002 Mama Said There'll Be Days Like This, There'll Be Days Like This My Mama Said. In 1961, the highly acclaimed girl group, The Shirelles and 1996 inductees of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame recorded the hit song, "Mama Said." The lyrics tell us, "Mama said there'll be days like this ... everything going fine, but ... days when chapel bells are callin' for everyone but -a me!" Are you there in one of those days? But "Mama said, Hey! Don't you worry now." Don't worry! Why? Because Mam. a said, Take your burdens to the Lord; He will take care of you and the day! What about tomorrow? Well, she said, He holds tomorrow and all the days to come. Listen, 'Mama said, Hey! Don't you worry now." Because she knew what Jesus promised, and He said, "I will never leave you or forsake you." Now, I understand why Mama said don't worry, she and Daddy are forever with Him! The question is, Are YOU? Goodnight Mama, we will see you in the morning!

The house had belonged to my grandparents, who passed it on to my parents." What Ms. Swindell found out later was the house had a $136,000 lien on it, her mortgage payments were behind, and she was trying to get them adjusted so she and her daughter, Crystal Smith, could afford to keep the house. The hous e n ee ded a lot of work and I wasn't able to get a loan of any kind to get the work done." Last week, Ms. Swindell's battle came to an end when she and her daughter were evicted from the home with virtually nowhere to go. Congresswoman, Kathy Castor's office was trying to see if their foreclosure workshops and attorney' s could help Ms. Swindell, but according to her aide, Chloe Coney, it was too late. Automobile Accidents All Serious Injury Claims Wrongful Death Nursing Home Abuse Medical Slip & Falls "When we intervened on Ms. Swindell's behalf, we discovered the house had been sold. That meant she had no legal right to the house and had no choice, but to find somewhere else for her and her daughter to go." "I am appealing to city and county officials to help this family.

Su nda.Y School __________ 1 Reioice And Have Peace This week s lesson comes from Paul 's letter to the Philippian church chapter 4 verses 1 through 14. Paul's main theme in these verses is to exhort the people to have peace in their life. One of the most important things a person can have in life is peace People want peace in their homes, on their job, in school, and most of all in church. If you can't have peace in church, where can you have it? Paul writes to the church and mentions a disagreement be tween two women. He desires for them to be of the same mind of the Lord (vs. 2). Confusion comes when there are two opposing views and wills. These two ladies are church going ladies. These ladies are ladies who engage and support in ministry. While they have these things in common their differences have caused a prob lem. Paul helps them in an indirect but yet very direct way. He mentions to a fellow labore r to help them (vs. 3). Paul helps them by alluding to the truth that they have a lot in common. They are both in ministry and they both are working for the Lord. The church folk today must understand that their purpose is not to carry out their own will, but they are working to accom plish and fulfill the will of God People will be able to resolve their differences and have peace in the church when they realize that they are fellow workers for God and it is not for them to im pose their own will. Paul moves his attention back to the whole congregation. He gives them no further attention. TOO OFTENTIMES NEGATIVE PEOPLE AND THEIR MESS GET TOO MUCH PUBUCITY. Paul says to the church REJOICE in the Lord ALWAYS! (vs. 4). The church is not to fight always and be in turmoil. The church is not expected to be in a state of moaning and groaning always. The expectation for th e church i s to be in a continual state of re joicing. Some will say how can BROWN MEMORIAL CHURCH OF GOD IN CHRIST 2313 E. 27th AVE.

How can I re joice when my s pou se won't act right and my child is m e ntally AWOL? You can rejoice always eve n when you go through these things becaus e you are not r e joicing about your s ituation. You are rejoicing about He who is able to do all things. You are rejoicing at the remembrance that the last time you had mess going on; He worked a miracle. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and sup plication, with thanksgiving, let your request be made known to God (vs. 6). This verse alone lets the believer know that stress and worrying is not a part of God 's mandate. You must learn not to stress and worry over every situation that arises. You are mandated to pray to God. Give thanks to Him. This does not mean that you will not have to deal with things or go through an uncomfortable situ ation The key is the PEACE of God. When you go through, God will give a peace that will leave people in awe and amazement. People will ask you,. "How are you staying so calm?" That is the peace of God that has gone beyond their mental intellect. God will give you peace among each other and in all situations. You have to know the power of God to know that peace of God.

Weekend Headaches -A sudden drop in stress can prompt migraines Stick closely to your weekday sleeping and eating schedule to minimize other triggers. Intense Period Cramps The most stressed-out women are more than twice as likely to experience painful cramps as those who are less tense. Hitting the gym can soothe cramps and stress, re search shows, by decreasing sympathetic nervous system activity Mouth Aches -A sore jaw can be a sign of teeth grinding which usually oc curs during sleep and can be worsened by stress Bleeding Gums Stressed-out people have a higher risk of periodontal disease.

Be sure to choose the right bread for your sandwich. Keep in mind that the more moisture in the fillings, the drier and denser the bread should be. Breads with thick crusts work per fectly, or swap your regular bread for flour tortillas, bagels, English muffins or pitas. Grill or toast the bread to add crunch and flavor. Keep wet ingredi ents from making your sandwiches soggy by adding a light layer of butter to the bread. Get creative with cookie cutters for fun sandwich shapes! The Ingredients. To keep sandwiches crispy and delicious, place a single layer of lunchmeat od eac h slice of bread, then spreading the on those. The meat creates a barrier between the bread and the rest of the ingredients. Cheese also works nicely as a barrier. One rule of thumb is to never place tomatoes directly on the cheese -the juice from the tomatoes will make the cheese soft and cause the bread to become soggy. Instead, place tomatoes in between lettuce slices. Cucumbers are also great alternatives for lettuce. Finding school lunch ideas that stay fresh can be quite challenging. The Storage. Another good defense against sog giness is to pack them separately and let the kids make the sandwiches at school. Bread goes in one bag or container, meat and vegetables in another, and throw in little restaurant packets of mayo or mustard. The Fresh Squad suggests insulated lunch bags as the best choice for school lunches. Some in sulated lunch bags are equipped with freezer packs. If not, try freezing juice boxes or reusable bottled waters instead of adding freezer packs. The boxes or bottles will thaw to provide a refreshing beverage and keep the sandwich fresh. With a few 'quick tips', you can provide your children delicious and tasty sandwiches and a few goodies, too. Sometimes the simplest ideas work best.

FLORIDA SENTINEL FRIDAY,AUGUST20,2010 c First Dilts Kind Modeling Audition Planned BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel City Editor One of the most common complaints heard from aspiring models is they must leave the area to become known. But, one Tampa entrepreneur plans to make that complaint a thing of the past. On Wednesday, September 1st, at 5 p.m., Ms. Demetria George will hold The First Of Its Kind Modeling Audition in Tampa. The event will take place at Tampa Bay Community Network, 1001 North B Stre e t. The casting call is for both men and women between the ages of 16 and 29. The event is called Tampa's Next Best Model. It is patterned after on the highly popular television show, "America's Next Top Model," hosted by Tyra Banks. Ms. George said she has completed requirements and received her certification as a television producer. This is her first ventuie, but she bas plans to bring many opportunities of exposure to the Bay area. With the exception of liv ing together, the models will follow the same elimination process as the show. They will have an opportunity to participate in photo shoots, MS. DEMETRIA GEORGE ... To hold firs t of its kind modeling audition in Tampa runway modeling and a fashion show. The elimination process will span 14 weeks, and the winner will receive a role in a movie she plans to produce, $soo in cash, prizes, and modeling. Ms. George said, "The first series will feature women. After that, the men will compete. I'm looking for models in all shapes and sizes and they don't have to have any experience. Similar to Top Model, Ms. George said the show will air weekly on the Tampa Bay Community Network every Monday night at 9 p.m. It can be seen on five cable networks. Ms. George is the daugb-ter of Ms. Johnnie Mae Matthews and the late Davis George. She is married to Warren Jackson and is the mother of six children. Currently employed as a C. N A Ms. George plans to eventually open her own Modeling Agency as well as serve as a producer. She further stated that she is seeki ng fashion designers, make-up artists and stylists who are. willing to volunteer their time for the production. Ms. George is also seeking sponsors to help her produce an AIDS Awareness Concert in the future.

She owns and operates child care facilities in Tampa and Plant City under the banner of the Fun Factory Education Corporation. The Tampa facility is called Community Christian Child Care. Ms. Lewis said she's always had a special interest in children, whether it be babysitting, spending time with her siblings, or just in general. "When I got pregnant in 1981, my child was born prematurely. That experience made me wonder how com fortable I'd be with leaving m y child in a child care facili ty. That 's when I decided to pursue opening my own cen ter. Ms. Lewis is very proud of a curriculum she s created for children called the Emotional Literacy Program. This is an area not being targeted by the child care industry. I feel children, ages 3 to 5, need to be exposed to emotional literacy. They are being raised in an environment where they need to know how to communicate. Those are not issues addressed in a regular child care environment. I want to make sure we address the emotional state of each child. "We want to make sure the children are well adjusted as they advance. Parents have Qeen very cooperative and we communicate with them daily on the progress of their child ren. When the need arises, we MARILYN. LEWIS also contact them by phone. Ms. Lewis said she s also aware that parents are find ing it difficult to afford child care in toda y's economy "To help, I've created a system where I finance their child care. I give them a cash voucher, they get a $1,900 discount, and pay $220 -permonth. They have a small balance left that can be paid off o ver a 6-year period. "This allows the parents flexibility and gives them more disposable income in the home. A lot of them come from single fanilly homes and we try to alleviate some of the hardships by making sure child care cost isn't a problem." Ms. Lewis said this is her way of giving back to the community, and assuring parents their children will be safe during the day. Ms. Lewis has a degree in psychology from California Coast University. The Georgia native came to Tampa in the 1970s, and opened her first child care center in 1983 on South MacDill. I Program Helps Develop Youth Cultural An Talents BY LEON B. CREWS Sentinel StaffWriter -The CDC of Tampa, Incorporated's Prodigy Program has been in East Tampa since 2006. Housed at the Audrey Spotford Center on Lake Avenue and 28th Street, the program focuses on cultural arts and is considered a prevention, diversion, and intervention program for youth. Davida Bowen, director of the program, said they teach kids how to produce music, have them participate in dance classes arts classes and they learn life skill lessons. "We work with youth 7 to 17, the program is free, and we have year-round open enrollment." "The youth are referred through Bay Area Youth Services, but that's just one segment we serve. We also serve youth coming directl y from the community." Ms. Bowen said there' s a multi-county network site that covers seven counties, and their parent site is the University Area CDC on North 22nd Street "Eac h year, we serve about 300 youth, and we want to have more of a presence at the Audrey Spotford Center. We 've also formed partnerships with other youth agen cies." We're finding that starting at the age of 7, youth are starting to gain an identity and by 12, that identity leads them in one direction or another. "Our biggest battle is against the household. But lately, we ve seen more parents interested in the positive development of their children." From left to right: CDC Of Tampa CEO, Toni Watts, Tekyra McDonald, and Davida Bowen.

Vasquez is running against Judge Liz Rice. Our selection of Vasquez was based on our interview with both candidates, as well as a lot of feedback from attorneys, bailiffs and other person. nel, who have had experiences in Judge Rice's courtroom over the last 6 years .... none positive. On the other hand, Vasquez the conversation from the legal eagles about Vasquez is that she works hard for all her clients, and has been a advocate for children and families her entire career. She has done a lot of pro bono work and ad litem work that will give her a better temperament on the bench. With so much of our community's livelihood deter-' mined in the courthouse, we have to elect judges that will best serve us. Countv Judge Group 10 DICK GRECO, JR.

In the construction category, something I know blacks are very familiar with, TGH spent over $140,000,000 (one hundred forty million dollars) That's right blacks received $4,599 less than five thousand dollars .0033%. Do those numbers add up to you? ln the Goods & Services category TGH spent $20,012,235 over (twenty million dollars) and blacks got $459,718 a little more than 229%. In the Professional Services category TGH spent $10,511,114 (over ten million dollars) and blacks received only $29,640, which represents 28%. In the Med ica l Supply category TGH spent $21 215,538 (over twenty one million Dollars ) and blacks received $0.00, that's right nothing, nada, zip, zero that's pathetic. While producing these dismal results, Miller received over a million dollars in salary and compensation from Tampa General Hospital during his tenure as the Manager of Minority Business Development. Miller was also working ( PartTime) collecting a paycheck from the Florida State Legisla ture When asked about these dismal results Miller told the St. Pete Times on May 27 2007 I have worked hard to find minority businesses, there are just not a lot of black-owned firms able to provide those services". I don t believe that answer do you? Especially when Miller was a member of FAMBEO (Florida Assoc of Minority Enterprise Officials ) as well as other agencies. It's also amazing to me that other hospitals in Florida could do so well with their minority business programs during the same two-year t i me period. North Broward Hospital District for examp le, awarded over $106,000,000 (one hundred six million dollars) with an average of over 1 5 % mi nority participat i on overall. While TGH published a dismal $25,900,497 (twenty five million dollars) 13% for minority business partic ipa tion out of $191,933,798 (one hundred ninety one million dollars) overall and only $459,957 for blacks, that equaled .24% Kevin White's Continued Commitment to you is that I will always do my homework, to ensure that your opportunities and interest are always protected.
