Police SimPlifies Gun Buv Back Initiative BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel City Editor On Saturday, December 10th, the City of Tampa will sponsor a gun buy back. City Council members unani-'' mously approved a $25,000 to help remove guns from the streets in light of a recent rash of shootings and murders committed with guns. The Tampa Police Depart ment has taken steps to sim plify the process for those wishing to surrender unwanted handguns. The host site for the buy back is the Seminole Heights Baptist Church, 801 E. Hillsborough Avenue, between 8 a.m., and 5 p.m. Ms. Janelle McGregor, spokesperson for the Tampa Police Department said The guns must be operable, it can't be a gun barrel or a part of a gun. One person can turn in as many guns as he or she would like. We are giving $so per gun, not per person. She further stated that in addition to the host site, if someone cannot get to the location, that person can call the police at (813) 231-6130 Mrs. Mary Reynolds, grandmother of 16-year-old Jamarie Hodges, spoke at a press conference Tuesday morning. Jamarie was fatally shot November 6th outside of his residence when he attempted to help a friend. Saturday only and an officer will come to you and pick up the gun. "We want the people to bring the guns and there will be no questions asked. They can also drop the guns off at Greater Friendship Baptist Church, 4413 N. 35th Street on Saturday," she said. "We are accepting pistols, revolvers, rifles, and shotguns. We feel the more peo ple we can encourage to tum in guns, the safer the streets will be." Police are requesting -that anyone turning in a gun to make sure the weapon is not loaded and in a plastic bag. While transporting the weapon, it should be placed inside the trunk of the car or inside a box. An officer will either remove it or pick it up Ms. McGregor said that if the person is unfamiliar with the weapon or does not know how to unload it, safety is the first concern. If that person calls, someone will come and pick the gun up In addition to the press conference, a "Stop The Violence From Dope To Hope March" will take place Saturday, December 10th, 3 p .m., at Greater Mount Carmel AME Church, 4209 N. 34th Street.

features council Members Delav Decision In Wake 01 Roundabout Vote c m 0 m s: m m :::c ,!D N 0 BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel City Editor ... ... On Monday night, the East Tampa Community Re vitalization Partnership (ETCRP) held a spec ial meeting to re-vote on a pro posed roundabout that would serve as the quasi gateway to the community. Those in attendance voted down the proposed roundabout in a 26-25 vote On Thursday, City Coun cil members discussed the issue. However, based on advice from the legal coun sel, the board decided to delay their decision because the subject was not listed on its agenda. The area in question is where N. 21s t Street N. 22"d Street, E 22" d Avenue, and E. 23rd Avenue join. Pastor Essie Sims, Jr., left, talks with AI Davis during the meeting. Curtis Brown, who is a board member of the East Tampa Community Revitalization Partnership, was not in favor of the roundabout. Ms. Andrea White and Ralph Smith collected the votes pertaining to the roundabout. Several members of the audience, who live in work in or who own business and property in East Tampa, shared their opinions AI Davis said, I think the prior votes for the roundabout should stand ... I don't know how many times we have to vote to get the message across The roundabout is critical. Ms. Dianne Hart said, "We have developed anumber of houses on E. 22" d Avenue and the people can't make a left turn on that street. The roundabout lines up the streets." Ms. Marguerite Williams said, "I think the roundabout is nice but they need to do something about the lights. The city cut off the streets and the people are using it as a dumping ground." Ms. Kay Andrews,. publisher of the Sentinel said, have received so many calls about the roundabouts on N 40th Street. There have been at least two serious accidents and I think this money could be better used. I grew up in East Tampa on Cayuga and it looks worse than it ever did. Now you are going to spend $1.7 million for an- I.M1g & Meclcal Expenses ll'anspot lalioo Cou19elng Selecting & Meellng other roundabout .... We can put this on hold for something better like sidewalks and street lights. It has noth ing to do with what was planned in 2003 and it has nothing to do with the Sentinel. ''I' m talking about us as a community We need to stop and take a look at this be ca use once it's done yo u can't go back. Bakari Brown said, I still have problems with $1.7 million being spent for a c i r cle in the middle of the road. I want to see money coming into the community, but we should go back to the draw ing board. Curtis Brown said, "You should be careful what you wish for How are first responders going to get where they are going when they cannot maneuver through a roundabout? It takes away from the emergency response time. I'm not against roundabouts, but you can't show one at a fork in the road." Ms. Andrea White said, "D OT is never wrong, look at N. 22"d Street and I4 How many times has that wall been hit. It seems as if there is a rush to get this project done quickly. LaGaceta newspaper recently wrote an editorial not en dorsing this roundabout." Sam Kinsey said, "There are 4 corridors that run the length of the city and N. 22nd Street is one of the m. We want it to be a safe corridor .... Let's not get caught up into thinking that only Plcb.na & Updalas Of""' Child AlwflfS FREE To Molher8 TIF dollars are being used. Wilbert Malphus said, The first roundabout was built in England to offset the cost of a traffic light and its maintenance. I own the clos est piece of property to that intersection and there is no real traffic problems there. I don't see how a roundabout would benefit. (Photogra phy by BRUNSON). "1'1 r-0 Improvements Begin At Site 01 Fatal East Tampa Accident :!! c )> en m z z m On Wednesday, the first street light was installed on N. 43r d Street. A second street light and spee d tables are designated to be in stalled before Christmas.

Raymond T. (Tom) Elligett, Jr., the author of th e articl e wrote, The career of Warren Hope Dawson proves that perseverance can be an important quality of leadership. From Warren's beginnings in the small Polk County town of Mulberry, to a student at Florida A & M, to his leadership as a commis sioned officer in the Army, to championing Civil Rights, and to furthering minority representation in the Florida Legislature, Warren has persevered." Of the recognition, Attorney Dawson said, "Perhaps, the highest form of praise one can receive regarding what he does, is from someone who is in the same profession. When your colleagues think you are demonstrating leadership, it is most encouraging. For more than four WISS Starting At $9.99 LACEFROIITS Starting At $19.99 HIIIIIAII HAIR Starting At $5.99 ATIY. WARREN DAWSON .. Featured in Lawyer Magazine decades Attorney Dawson has practiced law in Hillsbor ough County. During his ca reer, he has accomplished such feats as bringing about changes in elections. Prior to his efforts in 1980, it was nearly impossible for an African American to win an elected seat to a city or county office. His efforts pro vided the opportunity for this to happen. His role as a community activist helped open the doors of diversity for such or ganizations as Ye Mystic Crew of Gasparilla. He also played a critical role in the city's rejection of a slave ship exhibit in downtown Tampa. However, one of the longest battles that Attorney Dawson has fought and won was the desegregation of the Hillsborough County Public School System. In 1974, he undertook the task of becoming lead counsel in Manning vs. The School Board. later, the lawsuit ensured that balanced integration took place throughout the count)'. 'He also established himself as a force to be reckoned in criminal law. In the 1980s, he represented Nathaniel Sanders, an African Ameri can charged with first-degree murder. In the case State of Florida vs. Nathaniel Sanders, Attorney Dawson successfully attacked the racially discriminatory process of the grand jury foreman selection. Attorney Dawson said the battles were not without cost. However, "I never demonstrated fear to speak the truth to the powers that be and that took a lot of courage." During his tenure, Attorney Dawson has been the recipient of numerous awards and commendations including being recognized by Ebony Magazine as one of the "100 Most Irifluential Blacks In America," having an Honorary Doctorate degree bestowed upon him by F1oridaA& M Univer sity, and numerous others.

Annual Solid waste Bills Good Or Bad And what would you think about this one? You receive your 2012 property tax bill only to find that your tax bill has increased by $300 or more. Indeed, if the City of Tampa's Solid Waste Department gets its way, your garbage and trash bill will be added to your property tax bill for payment once a year. The reason for such addition doesn't take rocket science. Solid Waste is under the gun to reach greater fiscal self-sufficiency. However, we have several serious concerns about requiring homeowners to pay for their garbage and trash collection 12 months in advance. First, what about the inconvenience placed upon senior citizens, working poor, and unemployed residents who simply may not know about the City's proposed change and the challenge it will place upon their meager finances? Secondly, what about the resident who can't pay the full amount and will therefore, be delinquent in his or her property tax because of the inability to pay the combined t'otal for taxes and solid waste? Somewhere in the great labyrinths of City Hall, somebody is laughing. But we assure you, the person who is laughing is not elderly, or poor. Therefore, we humbly request City of Tampa Solid Waste to develop a "win-win" strategy that allows homeowners to continue monthly payments by increasing the monthly fees over a three to five year period. In addition, we advise that property owners who are indeed, unable to pay the solid waste fee not be considered delinquent because of an inability to pay the solid waste fees attached. If Government is "of the people, by the people, and for the people," then let the people speak. And let City Government listen. I Newt Gingrich: Far From Readv I Far be it for us to add fire to a cold pot. But since he is indeed, running for the presidency of the United States, and since Herman Cain has recently bowed out gratuitously if not gracefully, several words about Newt Gingrich -who is feverishly attempting to pick up the pieces -seem in order. Is this the same man who is a close friend and disciple of world renowned futurists Alvin and Heidi Toffier, whose books The Third Wave and Creating a New Civilization carry forwards by none other than Newt Gingrich? Is this the same man who once argued for the end of the American Constitution in its current state, and also farsightedly suggested that every American school student should be given a laptop along with Internet access? And is this the same man who was booed from the drawing rooms of Capitol Hill because he divorced his wife while she lay dying of cancer, or so the scuttlebutt goes? Well, just recently, we can add another confusing chapter to this man who would by highly fascinating were he not running for the Republican candidacy of Chief Executive. In a recent meeting, Mr. Gingrich is overheard to state, "Really poor children in really poor neighborhoods have no habits of working and have nobody around them who works. So, they literally have no habit of 'I do this and you give me cash' unless it's illegal." Newt's suggestion: Consign poor children to menial labor ... pushing brooms, painting fences etc. Indeed, Newt Gingrich said that, which makes us say this. Though Gingrich is no doubt, an intellectual, what he has done with his intellect in the past and what he would do with his intellect if elected president of the United States chills us to our bones. Newt and Darth Vader have much in common. Newt Picking On Poor Children Old loose lip Newt, as in Newt Gingrich is at it again. This time, his loose lips are picking on poor kids and especially poor Black ones. The GOP presidential can didate labeled Child Labor laws as being truly stupid. He is paying absolutely no attention to the fact that Child Labor laws are de signed to protect children in the workplace. That's not all Newt's loose lips are saying about poor children. He also be lieves that poor -children should be put to work as janitors in their schools Poor kids are sent to school to get an education, nof to become full time employees. A good education is necessary for them to improve their situa tion in life. Was loose lip Newt Gingrich through? Oh, no. He had something even more stupid to say. His last statement was the straw that broke the camel's back. He said that poor children don't understand the concept of work unless they are doing something illegal. He used drug dealing, prostitution and robbery as examples. Now, I must say, hold on there Newt. Are you saying that poor children are dumb? Are you saying that the only occupations poor children are familiar with are drug dealing, prostitution and robbery? Somebody tell The Ghost 01 Dorie Miller I have seen my father weep twice in my life. The first time I saw him weep, we were watching a docu mentary on the history of Black folks in America, and in the background of the documentary, Ray Charles was singing, Oh, beautiful for spacious skies and amber waves of grain ." I saw my father break down in tears as Ray Charles' rendition of "America the Beautiful poured through the televi sion screen like a river. But the second time I saw my father cry was during an other documentary address ing the presence of African Americans during the so called theatres of World War II. My father was a Navy man who joined up during the final years of that horrendous war. Consequently, he missed much of its terror and misery. But when the documentary's narrator in troduced the name of Dorie Miller, my father once again, broke down and wept. And I, having a slight idea as to why my father cried, and I cried with him. How much do you know about Dorie Miller, son of sharecroppers from Waco, Texas? And why should you want to know anything about him? I'll tell you why. At the end of a savage at tack by Japanese planes that all but swept the American Pacific fleet off the map of the world, this young Black man stationed aboard the U. S. S. Arizona, moored at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii did what few men would ever do. He proceeded to risk his life not only for his friends, but for a country who did not believe that a man whose skin was black had a right be called human. Let me tell you what Dorie Miller did, which was why my father cried. Miller was a stocky, strong built young man. At his high school in Waco, Texas, he was All-Star fullback for an undefeated football team. At age 19, he enlisted into the U.S. Navy. Dorie had stars in his eyes. He wanted to see the world. Unfortunately, most of what he got to see was a kitchen in the belly of the battleship U. S. S. Arizona. Baking biscuits, not shoot ing bullets, became his best stock-in-trade. But such insult did not subdue Dorie's fighting spirit. Indeed, he became the ship's boxing champion, knocking out anyone who had the audacity to call him "Nigger" to his face. And so, on a clear day and placid morning, seagulls laughing as they glided op the breeze were abruptly ac companied by the scream of of work. Come on man, I .,.. heard that you are supposed to be smarter than that. No Newt, I didn't forget that you said low morals are usually linking to being poor. Ha! You thought that I for got. Not on your life. I didn't forget and I won't forget all of the low-down things you said about poor people. I could never support or vote for anybody who feels like you do about poor peo ple. Poor people come in all colors and all races. While you did not single out poor Blacks, you don't need a Ph.D. to know that you were really referring to Black people. I hope Blacks and poor people all over the United States remember you and your statement come elec tion time. Imperial Japanese dive bombers and torpedo planes intent on picking off every battleship they could see. But what they couldn't see was a plucky young Black man who, on his own time, had learned to shoot an anti aircraft gun as easily used to shoot a B-B gun in Waco. The first wave of Japanese fighters was devastating. The Arizona was turned into an inferno. All sailors scrambled for their quarters. Dorie Miller was in the laundry room washing clothes when the first bomb hit. He did not wait for orders. He put down white sailors' dirty clothes, sprang up the spindly ladders to topside, ran like a black bull over to an anti-aircraft gun battery, took over from wounded men, and began to fire. And as he fired, four planes fell. And when Japanese pilots finally drew beads on this burly Black ant on a battered battleship deck, and blew his guns out of action, Dorie Miller scampered catlike to the rescue of his captain and other sailors, single-handedly saving their lives. When the smoke was cleared, Dorie MUler was a hero, given the Navy Cross by Admiral Chester W. Nimitz. Then Miller was sent unceremoniously back to the kitchen and was transferred to the aircrat\: carrier Liscome Bay where he was later killed in action. 5 :JJ CJ) m z m r-IJJ c: r r-gJ z ., c: IJJ c CJ) :::t: m c m < m m c :a Yes, December7, 1941 will live in infa,my in the hearts of all Americans.

a: LL. The Price Of A Forbidden Fruit c a: LL. Someone made a joke recently that Herman Cain, the man who once led the field of Republican presi dential candidates, reminded them of an old-school pimp. I said no, Cain couldn't be a pimp. A pimp knows how to control his women. In that scenario, Cain would more than likely play the role of the trick because he keeps allowing himself to be played I can't say it was a surprise when Cain took himself out of contention earlier this week. With all of the dirt being hurled upon him from every direction, I thought he would have bailed out soon-c z er. c( It wasn't shocking that he was exposed to scandal. C Mud-slinging has become an ffi entrenched part of the landscape. The amazing part to t-me was that he made it so easy for them to crush his candidacy. W I have never considered C myself the smartest kid in class or the sharpest knife in the drawer, but I know enough about the political process to understand that a Z person can't run for the most i= powerful position on the w ...J planet without dead-bolting the door that hides the skele tons I think that's in chapter one of the "How To Run For President For Dummies" book. Cain must have skipped that section because at the level of politics where he was playing, he should have known that someone would ev e ntually dig up something to use against him. And sev eral, settled, s exual harass ment lawsuits are enough to dry up anybody's White House dreams. Knowing that these allegations were out there, it' s interesting that he even considered running in the first place. Most potential candidates would rather let the opportunity pass them by than risk the potential embarrassment that would inevitably come once their shaky pasts were revealed My guess is that Cain, in his arrogance, either thought he was made of Teflon or thought that he could blow the subject off as a conspiracy against him if it was ever brought up, ala Bill Clinton in 1992 The thing that obviously slipped his mind through his thought process was that there is a big difference between himself and Clinton .... Clinton was white. When it came down to it I don' t think Cain actually realized that regardless of how much back-patting he received from his white sup porters, he was still a negro. A n**** with a good decent tax plan. But a n** nonetheless. The idea of him, with his dark black skin, making unwanted sexual advances to blonde-haired, blue eyed, good white women, remind ed them of one of the oldest fears in American history. There was no way he could survive the subliminal images his alleged actions conjured up. Ultimately Cain became the latest example of a Black man whos e downfall came as a direct result of his inability to control his white lust. And while I don t have the slightest concern for Cain not being in the presidential race, I can't help but wonder how many more Black men will have their careers derailed and lives ruined before they realize that the grass isn' t always greener and that Black pudding is just as sweet.

Letter -ro The E:ditu..-Death Of FAMU Drum Maior: Use Restraint In Forming Opinion TAMPA-As is customary for Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), when something negative occurs, media attention is heightened and relentless. From the instant that the death of the drum major for Florida A & M University hit the news wires, intense coverage by all media outlets commenced. Since the death, each and every day there has been some type of coverage or commentary. The more the possibility of hazing being involved was raised, the more scrutiny has been given. I very much respect the statement by the mother of the young man that a telephone call of the death of her son is not what a parent wants to get. I had a son who participated in the Florida Classic as a football player and such a call after the biggest game of his life would've been the last thing I would want to hear. Nevertheless, be wary of what is being reported by the media and individuals interviewed and commenting. Just as the parents and their attorney want to rid schools of hazing, every responsible person agrees. And contrary to some reports, FAMU as an institution does not promote or in anywise encourage hazing. Be that as it may, it is not yet known whether hazing caused the death of the young man. Keep in mind, though, students must desire to stop hazing. Just as no school has been able to halt alcohol abuse and sexual promiscuity because it is participation-driven, hazing has a similar standing. The students being hazed, as well as the hazers, control the continuation or extinction thereof. A few days after the Practicing Law In: death when the news of the parents' intent to file a lawsuit made headlines, the media attention given was not warranted. It is a part of the American way of life to seek legal redress when a person feels she or he has been wronged. An announcement on the subject would have been newsworthy if the parents announced they would not sue. Further, do not let the media compromise confidence in the FAMU president. He has experience in dealing with situations deemed crises and has brought two universities through crises. He is a God-fearing man who realizes that he must depend on God to handle a crisis. Finally, don't let the media determine your opinions or beliefs. Remember, the media relishes in negativity when Black people or issues are involved. It is more disheartening when 'colored' writers who know that unfair reporting exists treat the university worse than others. Where was the broadcast local and national networks and cable outlets, and print media coverage, when FAMU was outperforming Ivy League schools, other majority schools and all schools in Florida enrolling national merit and achievement scholars? Or where is media coverage when students in various majors are achieving 100% passage rated on state licensing tests. "Good Morning America" or 'Good Night U. S.' was or is nowhere to be found. When the same Florida A & M University was selected as the College of the Year in 1997, there was no media coverage.

JJ councilman Frank Reddick Addresses 'Stop ommissioners Reverse Decision On Selecting Chairman BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel City Editor Last month Hillsborough County Commissioner Les Miller, Jr., suggested a plan that would allow the board's chairmanship to ro tate, thus eliminating the need for members to jockey for votes. The measure was tentatively approved by the board. However, on Wednesday, during the regular board meeting, members of the Re publican-controlled board reversed their decision. Commissioner Sandra Murman and Commissioner Mark Sharpe ini tially voted in favor of the new process. However, both have since reversed their de cisions. Commissioner Miller proposed that the most sen ior member would become the Chairman in 2012, who in this case would have been Commissioner Sharpe. The following year, the next senior board member who had never served as Chairman (Commissioner Kevin Beckner) will auto matically serve. The following year, Commissioner Beckner will serve and the District 1 rep resentative will become the Chairman and the District 2 LES MILLER, JR. County Commissioner representative will become the Vice Chairman. This process will eliminate the voting process. The only stipulation is that any new board member, who has not been in office for a full year, cannot serve The position will automatically rotate to the next in line. Commissioner Miller said, "I think that it is unfortunate that we are allowing outsiders to dictate how we vote. I don't understand why every member can't serve as chairman. Why does it have to be so Partisan. Saying a Democrat can't serve as chairman is just unfair." The initial vote was 5-2 in favor of the new process. However, the reversed votes of Commissioners Sharpe and Murman de feated the proposed plan.

\ DORIE MILLER 10/12/1919 --11/24/1943 BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel City Editor On Wednesday, America remembered the attack on Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941. That day marked the 70th an niversary of the attack that drew this country into World War II with the Japanese. Some Tampa residents shared their knowledge about Dorie Miller, an African American cook, who played a vital role after his ship w a s hit by enemy fire > Attorney Roderick < Ford said, "Dorie Miller C was an African American ff: World War II naval hero.

Is Bucs' Coach Job On The Lineil Tampa Ba y Buccaneers coach Raheem Morris surprised a lot of people las t year when he led his young team to a 10-6 record. Big things were expected of Morris; team this season I boldly predicted that the Bucs would finish no better than 8-8 this season. There are two clear-cut reasons for that prediction The first being, that the Bucs were no 10-6 team last season. They were able to sneak up on teams last sea-son. They weren't going to be C able to do that this year. 0: The second reason is that the prolonged National z Football League lockup mini camps.

Coach Morris and his staff have done about as good a job of coaching the Bucs as can be done. I don't believe there is a coach in the league that could have taken this Buc team and achieved a winning record As far as Coach Morris is concerned his job should be safe for another year. Management knows what kind of team the Bucs went into the season with. They knew that last year' s record was an overachievement. They knew the value that offseason workouts the team didn t have would hurt. Likewise, they understand why the team's record stands at 4-8. The t eam has four more gam es to pla y It would really solidifY the coach s job if he won 3 out of the 4. That is something the Bucs are capable of doing. I expect Coach Morris to be back next year.

Sports Bucs Hope To Regain Edge Against Jacksonville There are rumors abound at One Buc Place, and most of them involve whether head coach Raheem Morris will be back next year. That's a decision that will be made at the end of the season, but for right now, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are trying to stop the bleeding from 6 straight loses. Starting quarterback Josh Freeman will be returning to the field Sunday when the Bucs travel to EverBank Field in Jacksonville to face the Jaguars. The Jaguars are coming off a loss to the San Diego Chargers in a Monday night contest, and have sent bead coach Jack Del Rio packing. However, the strength of the Jaguars has been the weakness of the Buccaneers as Jacksonville's running back, Maurice JonesDrew, is at the top of the league in rushing yards. The Bucs have injuries to a lot of key players, but so does all the teams this time of the season. The Bucs need to recharge LeGarrett Blount and their ground game, and the Buc receivers must give Freeman open targets The Bucs (4-8) can finish the season at .soo, but they will have to win their final four games against Jacksonville, the Dallas Cowboys, Carolina Panthers and Atlanta Falcons. Sunday's kickoff will be at 1 p.m. Giants Sign OT Ugoh, Place OT Andrews On IR STACY ANDREWS EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ The New York Giants have placed offensive tackle Stacy Andrews on injured reserve with blood clots in both lungs and signed Tony Ugoh to fill the roster spot.

a: w m :::= w 0 w c MotivationaiSpeaker Has Radio Show c BY LEON B. CREWS Sentinel Staff Writer ii: Donald L. Dowridge, u. Jr., a motivational speaking guru, seldom has any spare time these days. Even while nursing a painful leg injury, heis still appearing at area churches, and will be portraying Frederick Douglass at a Mennonite Church this weekend. What Dowridge is most proud of is his opportunity to be heard on the radio. Dowridge is the host of a 30 minute, bi-weekly radio show he does from his phoneiJ and als.o has a host who asks him questions. The show is broadcast at www.Ashford Publishing Radio.com "After the first s how I got signed to do six more. And now I have only one left. Now, they want to sign me up for 5 more shows. "I enjoy talking directly to people and having them callin." Dowridge recently broad cast a saluting veterans show that ended up being about an assortment of things, including abuse. I try updating my flyers every two weeks to keep the information fresh so everyone will know where I am and what I'm doing. "I really feel blessed to be able to share my experiences DONALD DOWRIDGE with so man y so I can g uide them in a more productive direction No one knows b e tter than those of us who have actually been there, so when I talk, I talk from expe rience. Dowridge has spoken at schools, churches, and before groups that years ago wouldnit have allowed him through the door. Now, those same people are requesting him to speak, and referring him to others. Dowridge said if he can have an impact on just one life, it means a lot. "If I can impact one per son I want to take that person and help them to be a voice so they can make a dif ference."

'TI why they had not had chil-}( Keeping with His promise God inform s Abram that he will have a son. God spea ks a multitude of blessings upon Abram. God is able to take you from nothing to much. God is not limited to your situation or circum stance a phase on the journey. It is not the end! living On The Promise This week's lesson recorded in Genesis 15:1-6; 12-18 provides readers with information that will help them through difficult and trying times. Abram had a unique relationship with God and blessed to have found favor with Him. Abram is not as old as he will become, but he is not a youngster either. This is im portant because of the nature of the information God is providing. Most people have difficulty living on the prom ises of God when they con sider the situations of life. This story will help every be liever. God first calms Abram's fears saying, Do not fear, I am your shield and your re ward (vs. 1). It is not stated what had Abram fearful. There may be some events or situations in your life that have you fearful or afraid as Abram. The comfort of the Lord is knowing that He is your shield and your reward. Being your shield, God will protect you, keep you, and watch over you. God has you covered on every side. As your reward, God is every thing you need. With God you do not need anyone or anything else. Abram takes advantage of the opportunity to remind God that he does not have an heir to his blessings (vv. 2, 3). During this time it was considered important to have a son who would inherit what the father acquired. Note Abram s words; "Lord you have not given me an heir." Abram realizes that even something as natural has having children are a blessing from God. He ac knowledges that God is the giver of life. As the children of God, it is necessary for us to remem ber that God is the giver of all blessings and life. BROWN MEMORIAL CHURCH OF GOD IN CHRIST 2313 E. 27th AVE.

God speaks blessings upon Abram and his off spring. This is a lot for Abram to live off of. No matter what He encounters in life, he still has the promise of God. This becomes the diffi culty of many people. God has already spoken the bless ings in your life. You already know what the end is going to be regardless of what hap pens. God not only informs Abram of the blessing that will come but He also fore warns him of the bad times. To hear that your children and offspring will be held in captivity for four hundred years is troubling. To hear that they will have to serve others and they will be mis treated will make you won der did I do the right thing by asking for them to be born. No matter what God has informed him about the bad, the bad still do not outweigh the good This is just a sea son of their life. This time is NEW MT. ZION M. B. CHURCH, INC. 2511 E. Columbus Dr. (813) 248-8101 or (813) 247-3899 The mes sage to the church is that it does not matter what happens on the journey, you want to see the fulfillment of the promise. Some people lose hope be cause of the discomfort, but you must maintain your faith. After all, Abram knew dren but in spite of that, he c believed God anyway Even m when what God says does not seem to align with what you S:: are seeing, trust God's word. God has made you a promise ::D and you can live on the promise. Do not fret because of what you see, trust God for :::: what you have heard Him say!

Here's how: 1. Be Sure To Eat. Make it a priority to have a healthy and tasty meal-along with 1-2 healthy snacks. 2. Compensate, compensate. Get physical to compensate for your seden tary workday. Join a gym, take an early morning walk or run or find time for fit ness fun with your family 3 Rework Your Network. Chances are, your friends and co-workers need help with their love handles just as much as you do. So, try some new activities that don 't revolve around food. 4 Bring Your Friends On Board. By sharing h ea lth y potluck lunches ex changing recipes and pro v idin g moral support, you'll find that getting in s hap e can b e a team-building triumph. 5 Don' t Eat Due To Boredom. If you know that occasionally you 'll fall-and most of us do-pick out ahead of time the items yo u can live with so that y our dip doesn t become a dive. Keep water at your desk ; it'll give your hands something to do when you re stressed and \\rill divert you from eating when you're not really hungry. 6. Vary Your Routine. We all have them-those daily rituals, like heading up stairs to the cafeteria for a mid-morning latte and muf fin. If you want to change your life in big ways, try some small changes. 7 Lose The Technology. As much as possible, take advantage of opportuni ties throughout the day to get up and move! You'll be sur prised how quickly minor changes can improve your energy level and help you get fit. 8. Choose Wisely. Learn how to eat out wisely, and remember how much better you feel come mid-af ternoon when you eat healthy. Can Fruit Reallv Prevent Fibroidsil About 70% of women develop fibroids at some point in their lives, but African-Amer ican women are up to three times more likely to get them. The non-can cerous growths often have no symptoms, but they can be painful, affect men strual periods, and, in some cases, cause fer tility problems or make it difficult for women to carry a preg nancy to full term. Women who eat two or more servings per day are less likely to be diagnosed with fibroids than women who eat less than two servings a week. Humidifiers vs. Vaporizers A humidifier is a device that blows cool to lukewarm mist (vapor) into the air to increase humidity (moisture) in a room. A vaporizer is a device that releases a cool to hot mist into the air to help increase humidity or to help with breathing. These devices differ in a few key ways: A steam vaporizer boils water and releases steam into the air. The steam is germ-free, but the hot water can burn anyone who over turns or gets too close to the device. Evaporative (wick) humidifiers use a filtered wick to absorb water. A fan blows air through the moist wick, releasing a cool-to-lukewarm mist. Some models can sense when the air in the room is dry and turn themselves on and off to control humidity. Safety Facts Because the water in a a humidifier isn't boiled, bac teria, mold, and minerals (dust) can be in the mist. Using distilled water and carefully following the safety instructions can help keep the mist clean and safe. De pending on the model of the humidifier, a person may need to empty the water on a regular basis. Some humidi fier models are also quieter than others. If you have questions, be sure to do on line research, talk to store representatives, and, of course, ask your doctor for key tips on making the best choices.
