HOLTON Sentinel City Editor One of the earl y childhood memories of many people is being in church when the New Year arrives Some believe its origin centered on the Emancipation Proclamation while others believe the celebration arrived in this country in 1770. When it was learned that President Abraham Lincoln had set the date of January 1, 1863, as the date of freedom for slaves in Confederate states, the event took on a more significant meaning for African Americans. Since that time, it has become the tradition of many churches to 'hold service on > that night. The services continue with speakers, 0: singing and praise until the LL New Year arrives c z c:( c U) w ::::::: 1-w > w c w :::1: U) ::::i lXI ::::::: Q. z _, _, ::::::: m Prophetess JoAnne Gillespie, pastor of The Embassy International Christian Center said, "We wiil be having our Watch Night Service, beginning at 9 p.m., at the Crowne Plai:a Hotel & Center, 10221 Princess Palm Avenue. -' "Watch Night is a time to w z come together first and i= foremost to reflect on the end ifj of the outgoing year and 0 thank the Lord corporately for c:( His many blessings over the c a: 0 _, LL course of the past y ear. Secondl y Watch Night is a time to hear the prophetic Word of the Lord that will give direction, wisdom and. insight for the coming year. Finally, Watch Night is a time to celebrate a new year ripe with new opportunities .uaJ.A;,., pastor of Progressive Missionary Baptist Church said, "We still practice Watch Night. We have two services during the year and many of our members may not see each other. This is a great time of fellowship and a great opportunity for us to come together. We call it our Unity Service Elder Charles Davis, pastor of College Hill Church Of God In Christ, said he sees the night as being symbolic of salvation. "When a person receives salvation, he becomes a new creature. I see it as an opportunity to be free, like walking out of the old life and into a new life. It's about resurrecting Jesus in the new year. "Our Watch Night starts around 10 p. m. and continues into the New Year W e have service, then we have Baptism, we eat, and everyone goes home." Rev. John D. Anderson, Jr., pastor of New Testament M. B. Church of Thonotosassa said, "I believe Watch Night is about the Savior, Jesus Christ. This is a time of joyful celebration and bringing in a new year, with the type of life Christ wants you to have. It's about starting off the year in the right way. "In the past, we used to celebrate with the liquid spirit, now we celebrate with the Holy Ghost spirit." Pastor Antonio Hawkins, pastor of Faith Alive At Mt. Silla Church said, his congregation will l?egin the Watch Night Service at 9:30 p.m. "It is a continuing tradition of our ministry. I believe that it is necessary for the body of believers to bring in the New Year on one accord and in unity."

West Tampa CDC Prepares For 2011 BY LEON B. CREWS Sentinel Staff Writer The West Tampa CDC group is still very much alive, and although they haven't had much exposure, their board members and development manager have been working hard to get things started in 2011. Development Manager, Michael Randolph, said they are working on funding sources and are going to host a candidates night out. "We want the people of West Tampa to ask candidates for City Council and Mayor questions that will affect their future. We want to know what their plans are. "The focus of the current administration has been East Tampa, and now we want our share." West Tampa CDC Vice Chairman, Joseph Robinson, said they are still around waiting to regroup. "The projects Ed Turan-chik brought into West Tampa set us back. But, we're ready to get started now. We've toured the new businesses and agencies in West Tampa, and we plan to meet with them more in the future." Robinson said the most critical thing is for them to tie in with whoever the new mayor will be. "We have assets and think we're sitting better than the East Tampa group. We're trying to keep everything stable right now. We're still in charge of JOSEPH ROBINSON West Tampa CDC Vice-Chairman doing the overlay for West Tampa, and that process is ongoing. We have significant plans that include getting with the people from Tampa General Hospital. They are building a medical facility in our Overlay District that will generate more than 400 jobs. We have also had a lot of small developments in West Tampa." Robinson said they haven't been an organized force for a long time, but they will be applying for grants through the Children's Board. "We've also worked with a community outreach group out of the University of South Florida, and monitoring any new developments." Robiilson said at the first of the year they plan to really get things going "One of the more critical issues we will be dealing with first will be the rail initiative and how it is going to impact the people of West Tampa:.

. Feature Lener Points Fingers At Top OHicials In Countv's Head Start Program c m (") m Ill m :::c Earlier this week, the Sentinel received an email that raised several concerns about the Hillsborough County Head Start Program A head start parent, who wished to remain anonymous, also contacted the Sentinel to advise that another meeting of the Head Start Policy Council is scheduled for Thursday, December 30th. Ms. Kymberly McMaken-Baker, former Chairman of the Head Start Policy Council, allegedly signed the letter The letter stated that she is coming forward with the information now because "I am no longer a Policy Council Executive or General Board Member and therefore I can no longer be pushed into hiding information." However, when the Sentinel attempted to contact Ms. McMaken-Baker by email, she did not respond. Copies of the letter were also emailed to Mike Merrill, County Administrator; Dave Rogoff, Department Director; Robert Sheehan, Chief Investigator; and several others. Telephone calls from the Sentinel to Merrill and 'Sheehan were not returned as of press time. The author of the letter stated she has been personally involved in several of the issues currently being discussed. She also said she has been a board member since 2007. The author of the letter wrote, "I had the opportunity as the Chair to review the report written by Mr. Bob Sheehan, (Chieflnvestigator) that has been posted all over the Internet, giveri to parents and citizens by our County Leadership. I in fact met personally' on several different o ccasions with Mr. Mike Merrill, and Mr. Dave Rogoff. I was also involved with the Executive Policy Council's investigations of these cases in June and July of this year and our findings were put together in a report that was requested by Mr. Merrill the then Acting County Administrator as well as to Mr. Sheehan the Chief Investigator. ... Mr. Merrill chose to never submit this report to the media or any other individuals to my knowledge. Mr. Sheehan, to this day, has never even bothered to speak with me personally, although I have copied him on several different emails while holding the position as Chair and being in the middle of these allegations "What is disturbing to me about the report is that for the past several months County officials have made concerted efforts to discredit the Head Start Policy Council's Executive Board, our Head Start Parents, and the Head Start Leadership. As your previous chair, I was instructed to suppress public information regarding the termina tion of the non classified employee Dawn Dasher -by Mr. Dave Rogoff to my executive board and interrupting the process, which we are, required to uphold on the termination process of our Head Start Policy Council, which to date is still not resolved. ... These interviews that were conducted on curtent and previous employees clearly show why the employee turnover rate under Ms. Dasher was at the extremely high rate that originally caught our attention as a board. The author continued, "We directed Mr. Rogoff as the Dr. Martin Luther King Blvd Suite 102 Tampa, Florida 33607 1703 Palmetto Ave. Plant City, FL 33563 new Director to find out what was going on with employee turnover. Mr. Rogoff took it upon himself to handle Ms. Dasher." The author alleges that the Executive Board members were never given information needed to vote on terminating Ms. Dasher and that Ms. Dasher remains a County employee Memorandum Addresses Source Of Book Complaint However, an internal report pertaining to the investigation into the book issue stated, On November 3, 2010, Dawn Dasher was interviewed at Compliance Services con cerning Dasher's allegation that she was going to be terminated due to retaliation for reporting misconduct. "During her interview, Dasher stated that Head Start Fiscal Manager had diverted grant funds to the purchase of a book authored by the Fiscal Manager's wife," the Memorandum stated. The report also stated that during an interview, Louis Finney stated that he knew Jimenez was married, but did not know his wife's name. During his interview, Finney stated that any Head Start purchases under $10,000 are signed off internally, any purchases over that amount are handled by Procurement. Letter Writer Makes Other Allegations The writer also alleges, "County Leader (Dave Rogoff) gave a reporter a termination letter of two Head Start employees, prior to them ever being consulted or given the opportunity for true judgment. I was at the Head Start Policy Council meeting on December 16th, 2010 when he addressed the Policy Council Board and guests as to Ms. (Marie) Mason and Mr. (Michael) Jimenez's sus pension without pay and asked that we not discuss this situation until he had an opportunity to speak to Ms. Mason first "This after he had already given the reporter a (,.) termination letter for both ..... employees." She then outlined several other areas of concern a former Policy Board member complaining about Alpha Phi Alpha recelVlng special treatment and funds, and allegations of inappropriate expenditures that were false; complaints about Louis Finney that were reportedly false or unfounded. The writer stated, "It is my opinion that this board and community cannot just stand by and allow our program and leadership in this Program to be attacked, and slandered in the media." The author concluded the letter stating, .. .1 feel I have been used by Mr. Rogoff as r-0 well as Mr. Merrill, I feel I :::C was deliberately misled, lied to 0 and I want to make sure as an )> Executive Board and General en Policy Council Board members are fully aware of my :::1 experiences before you Z m make any determinations r-based on their information Ill alone." ? rm :::t z AUTO ACCIDENT REFERRAL SERVICE "'C c: Ill r-News Alert: The Florida Law States That You May Be Entitled To $1 0 000 For Loss Wages And Medical Care ...

E Local N -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------T"" i Despite Taped Conversations, Murder Suspect Still Denies i Killing Millionaire ff BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel City Editor On February 2nd, Ms. Dorice "Dee Dee" Donegan Moore was arrested and charged with murder. The arrested came about after police found the body of a Lakeland million aire. Earlier this week, Hillsborough County Judge released several hours of a recorded conversation that took place in December 2009 and January 2010. The conversations were taped by a police informant and an uncover police offiC cer. In the tapes, Ms. 0: Moore was allegedly trying to find someone to take z blame for killing Abraham <( Shakespeare. Shakespeare's family reported him missing to the Polk County Sheriffs Office 1-November 9, 2009. They had not had contact with the Lakeland resident since W April 2009. c w l: en ::::i m :::l c.. z iii ..J ..J :::l m Ms. Moore, 38, was orig inally a "person of interest" in Shakespeare's disap-pearance, In November 2006, Shakespeare, 42, and a DORICE iDEE DEEi MOORE ... Charged With Murder co-worker, Michael Ford, stopped at a convenience store in Frostproof. Ford went into the store and Shakespeare asked him to buy 2lottery tickets. Ford filed a lawsuit against Shakespeare, claiming that Shakespeare had taken the tickets from his wallet. But, a jury ruled in Shakespeare's favor in October 2007. Shakespeare accepted a one-time payout from the $30 million jackpot for approximately $17 million. Police said Ms. Moore reportedly approached Shakespeare in 2007 about writing a book about his life. ABRAHAM SHAKESPEARE ... Body Found Buried In January 2010 In April 2009, police allege Ms. Moore began using Shakespeare's cell phone to text his relatives and friends; she paid one of his relatives $5,000 to hand deliver a birthday card con:.. taining money to Shakespeare's mother; and allegedly offered to give a home to someone who would claim they had seen the missing man. -On Friday,_January 29, 2010, Shakespeare's body was found buried u'nder a slam of concrete at a Plant City home. Ms. Moore continues to deny she had. anything to do with the murder. She remains in jail without bond Funds Donated To Cover Funeral Expenses Stolen BY LEON B. CREWS Sentinel Staff Writer On December 18th, Peggy Elias lost her daughter, Joy Clark, 33-Ms. Elias was at home when she noticed her daughter convulsing, and she immediately called an ambu lance. Joy died within min utes of arriving at the hospi tal. When Joy Clark died, Ms. Elias had nothing to cover funeral expenses, and reached out to the community for help. stores in St. Petersburg were kind enough to allow me to put collection jars in their stores." When Ms. Elias went back to the stores to collect the jars, she was shocked to discover at least two of them had been stolen. "It's a shame that someone could stoop that low. The jars had my daughter's picture on the front, and the reason why the money was being collect ed. "I know these are hard times, but how could anyone sleep at night after doing something like this? There are people out there who just don't care about anyone or anything." Ms. Elias said the store owners apologized to her for the thefts, and made reports to the police. She also said the store owners allowed her to put the jars back into their stores, and even chipped in a little themself. JOY CLARK ... donations to cover her funeral expenses were stolen. "I hope the police catch whoever did this, and I want them to be broadcast on tele vision so everyone will know what they did." "I'm sure there are other people who know what they did, and are just keeping quiet. In my mind, they are just as guilty as the people who took the jars. I hope no one does this to them when they need help." Ms. Elias said the funeral home is aware of the problem, and continues to work with the family ori arrangements for Joy Clark. St. Petersburg Police Department spokesman, Mike Puetz, said one of the jars was stolen from a Shell Station on 34th Street, South, and detectives are reviewing a surveillance tape to identify the suspect.

Opinions expressed on editorial pages of this newspaper by Columnists or Gue s t Writers do not necessarily reflect the editorial stance of The Florida Sentinel Bulletin or the Publisher. Gazing Into The Future; Thinking About The Past As America prepares to approach a blameless New Year, the collective question that dogs us and. haunts us is "Why are we not content as a society?" Having done what only the nation of South Africa was able to do with integrity and success, having stared down history and in the face of incredulity voted in a Black man for President who, but several decades ago, would have been denied even a seat on the White House porch, still the itch of our ambivalence is so powerful that even a minor scratch draws blood. Consequently, at this critical juncture of our national evolution, we ask someone, anyone, totell us wha,we should do. A voice from history heeds our call. His name is Frederick Douglass. He says, "Power concedes nothing without a struggle. It never did, and it never will." What are we to learn from what Dou.: glass advises? The answer is clear. Yes, we Americans have voted in a Black president. However, ballots must be bolstered bybehavior. And in a society still wracked with racism, no exchange of power is easy. So, in this New Year, as Douglass-would we Americans must sU"uggle to make our dream of a color-blind society a reality. Such is history. Such is the trUth. And we are still infants, the game of nationhood. I The Banle lines Are Drawn I Well, if you thought you had to wait, you didn't have to wait long. Governor-elect Rick Scott seems to have taken several chapters from Teddy Roosevelt's "Talk-soft and carry a big stick" primer espewhen it comes to his New Year's government development plans. And does he have many of them! Take, for instance, what Scott wants to do with what he would call a state-wide school voucher system. Every school child would be eligible for a charter school voucher. Such a move would, of course, infuriate public school systems, but Scott-advisers admit they expected some pot-holes in road. Another maybe-bumpy id,ea is the initiative to ease up on environmental protection whenever such protection butted heads with possible economic advan-:tages. Most certainly, the list continues like a mad Mozart cantata. Indeed, the music for many of Scott's cqmpositions make us wonder whether they would ever be presented to a voting audience, even if the m .ajoritY of the orchestra is Copservative-Republican. Like all progressives, we admire creativity. Thinking outside the box has never been a concept that overshot our interest. However, we have been around long enough to know that everything creative is not necessarily beneficial or even common sense. Thus, we congratulate the Scott ad,ministration for being bold and caution it not to be bombastic. 11 homes, hospitals, rehab cen-I f there was such a thing as a genie in a bottle, and I was lucky enough to find that bottle, uncork it free the genie and get ten wishes for the year of 2011, I know exactly what those ten wishes would be. My first wish would be for a cure for cancer. The scourge of this disease has ravaged the bodies of human beings for ages and has avoided a cure in spite of intense research ef forts. My second wish would be for our economy to prosper in 2011, creating millions of jobs for those seeking employment. I would ask that businesses prosper, families excel and good times emerge once again For my third wish, I would ask the genie to end the wars that are disabling and taking the lives of so many people. In addition to the misery these wars are causing to limbs and lives, the wars are also draining our econom y For m y fourth wish, I would ask the genie to touch the hearts and minds of all hu mans and give them a love for e ach other a respect for each other and r espect for the wel fare and the property of each other. In other words, to end all of the crime that looms as a threat to all of us For my fifth wish, I would request that the hard-working genie make parents be parents and help them to do a better job of raising and caring for their children. Wish number six would be to instill into our children the desire to respect their parents, adults and themselves. At the same time have our children strive to be the best that they can be My seventh wish would be for the genie to go into our prison system and free those who are behind bars but do Selective Ignorance And he said "I do not read the Senator. " The WHAT?" said I. "The Florida Senator," said he. Oh, The Florida Sentinel, I corrected. "Yes," he answered, "I do not read that, either!" But thank God that many thousands of people continue to read the Sentinel because if they didn t read it, how would they ever know when they were being bamboozled by the outside world? I was listening to a local FM-radio show the other morning just in time to hear the show host explain to a caller that the problem he had with President Barack Obama was not that Obama wasn t articulate, but stemmed from the fact (or so the talk show host said) that articulate President Obama did not explain clearl y enough to the American people that they (we) must undergo sacri fice before our society got bet ter. Another caller complained Obama had done next to nothing since h e' d been in office. Soon afterward, I heard a caller heroically attempt to exthat President Obama had continuously been on-the-square with the American people, but as was true with the program host certain people chose not to hear what Obama to say. Then the caller used a phrase I will never forget. He said People are selectively igno rant," which means people don't hear what they don't like. The caller hung up. But his words got me to thinking. What people hear or see is what they believe. So, the only way to make people see the truth is to serve it to them like a continuqus glass of ice-cold One hot day, they will have to take a sip. Therefore I want to share some of the achievements of the Obama administration with you as we hurtle toward a brave New Year. Take, for instance, the issue of funding. President Obama cut salaries for 65 bailout executives. He closed offshore tax safe-havens and tax credit loopholes, while making major banks repay 75' percent of TARP funds, to bring the cost down to $89 billion, as ofJune of this year Pres. Obama crea t ed the Financial Stability Oversight Council to monitor of the financial system and iridi. vidual firms; new requirements for reporting fi nancial data; provided for or. derly liquidation of financial companies; limited trading activities of banks (Volker ters, nursing homes and doc tors offices and heal those ...... who need healing and to pro-o vide relief and comfort to those th a t need it I can t forget the homeless so with wish number nine I would want my genie to find a solution to dealing with the homelessness. The homeless are humans in need of help. I would ask the genie to set them on a path that will lead them away from their home lessness Finally, for wish number ten I wish for the entire world a happy, prosperous and an even better 2011 than 2010. But wait! I don't need a genie to wish for these ten things. Instead, I can bend my knees, raise my head toward heaven and pray to God for these things to occur. I invite all humans to join ;!! me in a word of prayer to the 0 Almighty for these things to :!:! c l> en come true.

0 A Reason To Be Thankful se a son. But l believe it's safe to assum e that whate v er dis comforting dilemma any of us are facing over here pales in comparison with the lit eral life-or-death struggles that some go through in other places. Because even in our dark est hours when we feel as though everything is against us, at least we have a roof to suffer under and a pillow to hold our tears. And that in it self is a blessing we should never take for granted and one we should forever be thankful for. Happy New Year! 0 a: After enjoying festive cel-u. ebrations last week and while preparing to bring in a new year, I wonder if those of us still basking in the glow of good cheer to all men are truly thankful for our good fortune? Because whether we know it or not, the only thing separating us from the mis ery we witness everyday on our television screens, in places halfway across the globe, is pure chance. The woman being gang raped in Sudan, the man having his arm dismembered by machete-wielding goons in Rwanda and the child dying from cholera in Haiti, their hardships could have o been put upon anyone reada: ing this, if not for divine u. 0 z c:( favor. It was the decision of the Creator to place our souls in the care of our parents in stead of theirs. If not for that, things could have easily been reversed. And it would be them looking at us with pity while trying to determine where the best party will occur this weekend. I say "us" because even in my situation, where my grief is the direct result of my own actions, I know that my con dition is far better than many who wouldn't think twice about trading places with me in an effort to escape their own dire circumstances.

The study also indicates that 1-in-s,ooo people in the United States have the disease, and 1-insoo Black births have Sickle Cell. Reddick said the biggest problem is Sickle Cell is still a forgotten disease. "We need to create more awareness. You don't see ad vertisements on television about this disease, and there is no cure or research being done. Yet, more people die each year." Reddick said one problem is it's hard to find adult hematologists to treat Sickle Cell patients. "There's only one in the area that will do it The others won t accept be cause all they have is Medi caid. That creates a crowd in the emergency room, because they have no other place to go." Reddick said one thing FRANK REDDICK he wants to clear up is that Sickle Cell is only an African American disease. "Hispanics have joined African Americans as pa tients. More and more of them are reaching out to us for services. "We must find a way to get more public about this dis ease. Right now, the budget cuts will have an adverse af fect on services to the pa tients, and as of now, they have no alternatives We'd have to minimize the service we provide to keep going, and that in turn means we won't be able to treat as many peo ple." Reddick said he will con tinue trying to bring more attention to the disease and that includes seeking out politicians to get a Bill passes or some legislation that will at least provide more federal dollars to keep the program going WARREN DAWSON 221-1800 14&1 Taoa Park Plaza @ Nebraska Ava. & scott St. Tre 11 rrng of a la:.,cr san 1mpotant de;1s1cn :hat shoJIO ro: be based soc, .p:" lc,e: scrre"tS Before 1ou dec de asr us to send /OU FREE :. ttcr 1nfor'at C aocut cual k:.t c's J"O expel ence'

Support The Florida Sentinel Advertisers Being Black And wealthv comes With A Price BY LEON B. CREWS Sentinel Staff Writer (An Analysis) It has long been document ed the problems professional football and basketball players have in some cities. Virtually all of them have fallen victim to the "being Black and driving an expen sive car." I don t ever recall a white athlete being stopped or harassed because they were driving an expensive car, or just because they were traveling in an affluent area. Today's case in point is undefeated boxing champ; Floyd Mayweather, Jr. Mayweather's exploits and success in the ring have made him a multi-millionaire and able to afford the finest luxuries life can offer. Among those luxuries is a multi-million dollar home Mayweather owns in a gated community in Las Vegas, Nevada. But, a funny thing happened to Mayweather on December 19th. Mayweather approached the gate to enter his commu nity, and was refused entry because the security guard on duty didn't recognize him. When the guard asked Mayweather for identification, he went ballistic. He tongue lashed the guard for not recognizing him and not allowing him to get to his house. Now, in any other situation, the guard would have been the villain, but once the media got hold of this, they jumped on Mayweather and painted him to be dis ruptive, thuggish, and wor-Contlnulnp Education, 16-Hr Braiding Certification And Technique Courses FLOYD MAYWEATHER, JR. ... a guard refused to open the gate and let him go home because he didn't recognize him. thy of being charged with a crime. As it turned out, Mayweather was charged with a crime, not the guard who refused to allow him to get to his house. Why is there a different standard for affluent African Americans? Why isn't a successful African American treated the same as a successful white person? TMZ1 the trash collectors of journalism, released a story that makes Mayweather look like an out-of-control man that needs to be locked away. They wanted their readers to see Mayweather as nothing more than a rich street thug and not a man who deserves the same respect as anyone else. No matter how much it is denied, there is a doublestandard that involves race in this country, and to those who say different, I invited them to stand on this side of the line and see for themselves.

A New York grand jury offiGially him for murder Tuesday after he confessed to shooting a man three times in the chest when he was 18 and fleeing the scene. Since his confession, Dep, real name Trevell Coleman, told The NYPost that he didn't know his victim died when he decided to come clean on the cold case.

"During the Civil Rights Movement, a lot of us participated in the sit-ins. Now, there is another call and if we educate and encourage them, then they can answer the call for the next generation." Citv Council Chair Has No Problem Balancing Religion And Politics BY LEON B. CREWS Sentinel StaffWriter The late Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. did it. Andrew Young did it. Other Mrican American clergy have done it. The issue ofbalancing reli gion and politics often is raised by opponents of those who've managed quite well to wear both hats. Rev. Thomas Scott has managed to balance religion and politics, first as a County Commissioner, and most re cently as Chairman of the Tampa City Council. "From a historical standpoint and the Civil Rights Movement, the church has been iri the forefront of politi cal functions in this country," said Rev. Scott. "From a Biblical standpoint, David was King of Is rael and a worship leader. I think I've liad role models who've managed q:uite well to balance religion and politics." Rev. Scott said his strat egy is to first have a staff in place to serve politically and another to serve religiously. "On many issues, I've had to make the separation be tween religion and politics. I follow the doctrine of the Bib}e, and that's how I get it done. "This year, an issue con cerning Human Rights came before the Council, and I struggled with it from a religiol,ls standpoint. I don't be lieve any should be discriminated against simply because they may have a dif ferent lifestyle. Protecting REV. THOMAS SCOTI Pastor Of The 34th Street Church Of God and City Council Chairman ones rights as a citizen may come in conflict with my du ties as a clergy, and I understand that." Rev. Scott said when you're on City Council, you have to be aggressive. "As Chairman, I take my role seriously. That means, I can't allow my colleagues to push me aside and take over a meeting. I also must always be in charge, and let them know I'm in charge. ''The fact I'm a clergy has ne:ver been a focal poi!lt when I'm running for office : There will always be oppqsition, but I think the people respect me in both roles." Rev. Scott said being both helps him do his job better and strengthens his position. ''I'd love to. follow in the footsteps of Dr. Kiitg, Jesse Jackson and others who served as examples that reli gion and politics can sit in the same room without any conflict." -BARBARA].

God is omnipotent; He is all-powerful. With God there is no need for anyone else to rule or have authority in your life. The Lord God is able to handle all of your life's issues, He is able to an swer all of your questions, and He is able to fight and defeat all of your enemies. To help you gain the vic. tory in your life Isaiah writes to the people to let them know that in spite of their past they have a better future ahead. Consider his words in this week's lesson Isaiah 44:21-28. He opens with a command to the people to remember (vs. 1). When it comes to serving and trust ing God you must not de velop spiritual amnesia. You cannot forget the things God has spoken, revealed, or promised. Too often there are some who the mighty works and promises of God. Here they are commanded to remember that it was God who formed them and it is God who they serve (vs. 1). You must serve God and God alone. Your faithful-MOUNT, PLEASANT M.B. CHURCH 2002 N. Rome Avenue* (Corner of Rome Ave. and Spruce St.) P.O. Box 4724 *Tampa Dr C.T.

"T1 Five More Countv Head Start Emplovees Facing Disciplinarv Action c m ("') m s: llJ m BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel City Editor Last week, two Hillsbo rough County Head Start employees were suspended without pay as a result of an ongoing investigation. The Sentinel has learned that five other employees will also face some level of disci pline. According to David Rogoff, Director of the Department of Health and Social Services, Civil Service dictates the method in which employees must be notified of disciplinary actions. But during the holidays, many people are on vacation and although letters have been mailed, they are unsure if the employees have been notified. However, Rogoff said administrators will take action against the employees ranging in severity from being written up to a more severe punishment. "According to Civil Serv ice rules, we must notify em ployees by mail and have a hearing to determine the level of discipline that will be taken," he said.

Board Certified Academ y Of Ambu/atoryr Foot & Ankle Surgery 10 Heart Anack svmptoms People Ignore Heart attacks don't alw ay s strike out of the blue --there are many symptoms we can watch for in the day s and weeks leading up to an attack. 1. Indigestion Or Nausea One of the most oft-over looked signs of a heart attack is nausea and stomach pain. Symptoms can range from mild indigestion to severe nau sea, cramping, and vomiting. 2. Jaw, Ear, Neck, Or Shoulder Pain A sharp pain in the neck or shoulder area, or it may feel like it's running along the jaw and up by the ear. Some women specifically report feel ing the pain between their shoulder blades. 3o Sexual Dysfunction Having trouble achieving or keeping erections is common in men with coronary artery disease, but they may not make the connection. Just as arteries around the heart can narrow and harden, so can those that supply the penis --and because those ar teries are smaller, they may show damage sooner. 4 Exhaustion Or Fatigue A sense of crushing fatigu e that lasts for several days is a nother sign of heart troubl e that's all too often overlooked or explained away Women, in particular, often look back after a heart attack and mention this symptom. 5 Breathlessness And Dizziness When your heart isn't get ting enough blood, it also isn't getting enough oxygen. And when there's not enough oxy gen circulating in your blood, the result is feeling unable to draw a deep, satisfying breath -the same feeling you get when you're at high elevation. 6. Leg Or Pain When the heart muscle isn't functioning properly, waste products aren't carried away from tissues by the blood, and the result can be edema, or swelling caused by fluid reten. tion. Edema usually starts in the feet, ankles, and legs because they're furthest from the heart, where circulation is poorer. In addition, when tis sues don't get enough blood, it can lead to a painful condition called ischemia Hillsborough County Healthcare Provider (Tampa Family Health Centers) Auto Accident Insurance-PIP PPO Insurance Plans Slip & Fall Injuries 7 Sleeplessness, Insomnia, And Anxiety Those who've had heart attacks often remember experi encing a sudden, unexplained inability to fall asleep or stay asleep during the month or weeks before their heart attack. 8. Flu-Like Symptoms Clammy, sweaty skin, along with feeling light-headed, fa tigued, and weak, leads some people to believe they're com ing down with the flu when, in fact, they're having a heart at tack. 9 Rapid-Fire Pulse Or Heart Rate One little-known symptom that sometimes predates a heart attack is known as ventricular tachycardia, more commonly described as rapid and irregular pulse and heart rate. 10. YouJustDon't Feel Like Yourself Heart attacks in older adults (especially those in their 8os and beyond, or in those who have dementia or multiple health conditions), can mimic many other conditions. 813-237-1364 FAX REFERRALS: 813-237-1365 OR Office: 221 0 E.

They used the principles of nonviolence Mahatma Gandhi pioneered while leading the Indian independence movement and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. utilized in the struggle for civil rights. These men have refused to work or eat so that their voices might be heard on issues like improved health care, better a: educational opportunities, LL nutritional meals, and yes -0 fair parole decisions ::i These protesters are wards of the Georgia Department 0 of Corrections prisoners of cn different races and religions who nevertheless banded 1-together across ethnic and geographical lines in support g;! of a common cause They are w petitioning for civil treat-0 ment and opportunities for personal betterment in an cn institutional system that is ffi supposedly designed to not ::::l only contain, but also to D. reform and improve. And they are human beings with w human rights, guaranteed to ::J them by many international ::::l covenants to which the U.S. is a party. One of these is the w International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights z (ICCPR), which states, "All W persons deprived of their libCJ) erty shall be treated with humanity and respect f or the inherent dignity of the human person."(ICCPR, Article 10) The rights of prisoners -the exact points around which the inmates in Georgia have raised concern are further laid out by the Standard Minimum Rules for the Treatment of Prisoners, approved b y the U.N. in 1957. Unfortunately, there have been credible stories that guards have responded violently to these non-violent protests. At least four prisons have been placed on lockdown. According to reports from prisoner advo cates, guards have allegedly used violent measures to force the men back to work. The reports include stories of beatings, guards destroying prisoners' property, withholding heat and hot water and denying access to family members. a: 0 ...J LL NAACP Supporting the National HIV I AIDS Strategy According to the "The stigma associated with HIV remains extremely high and fear of discrimination causes some Americans to avoid learning their HIV status, disclosing their status, or accessing medical care Hillsborough Branch NAACP is Facing AIDS by supporting the Natiortal HIV I AIDS Strategy Get HIV I AIDS tested at these sites: Hillsborough County Health Department Tampa Hillsborough Action Plan THAP Youth Ed Services DACCO St Joseph Tampa Care Clinic (813) 307-8064 (813)226-2141 (813) 933-2598 (813) 384-4028 (813) 870-4460 OEPAif!MtHT Of HEALTH GIIIUTittOIII.I.Itll.tmml10101.1. Last week a coalition including the Georgia State Conference of the NAACP approached the Georgia Department of Corrections for information -information on the allegations of abuse, but also information on the conditions that caused prisoners anguish in the first place On Monday, the DOC allowed a fact-finding team composed of NAACP envoys and other prisoner rights advocates to visit Macon State Prison in order to interview inmates, assess liv ing conditions and explore concerns that led to the strike. The delegation was able to confirm some of the concerns that the prisoners expressed, and will continue .to engage to bring justice for the prisoners. Prisoners may lose some rights when they are judged guilty and receive a jail tence -by no means a subjective process our penal system -but they are still human beings with legitimate needs. It is inspiring to see incarcerated men practicing non-violence, and encouraging for the redemptive power of the criminal justice system We just need to ensure that prisoners are given the chance to redeem themselves.

Church in Auburndale, childhood sweethearts, Larry V. Coleman and J ordaeshia R. Green exchanged their wedding vows before a quaint gather ing offamily and friends. The couple chose to not have the fancy wedding gown, tux 'n tails, flowing bouquet and other traditional wedding things. The Bride was escorted by her fathers, John R. Green and Michael R. Shaw. Michael Shaw, II, Mr. and Mrs. Larry (Jordaeshia) Coleman, the newlyweds. Taquera Murray is shown with Mr. and Mrs. Coleman. Ms. Sandra Worlds, aunt of the bride, was among the wedding guests. Wedding guest Herman Johnson, III, Owner of Above & Beyond Limo Service, had a surprise in store for the newlyweds . served as the Best Man. Reverend Billy Shaw was the officiator of the wedding vows Larry and J ordaeshia sealed their unity by the lighting of the unity candle. Simplicity was the theme of the ceremony and reception, which was held at one of the couple's favorite restaurants, Fred 's Market in Lakeland. However, a hint of luxury came at the conclusion of the ceremony. Michael Shaw escorted the 'eyes covered' newlyweds to the outside of the church where Herman Johnson, Jr., a.k.a. Uncle Ricky (family member ofthe Bride) and Owner of Above and Beyond Limo Service awaited their entrance (on the red carpet) into his Godfather Edition Excalibur Roadster, complete with the Godfather theme horn. The newlyweds enjoyed the fancy ride (and highway attention!) from the church in Auburndale to the restaurant in Lakeland.

For Your Into Whv Do People Decide ToBuvAHome Typically it's the frustra tion of watching the monthly rent check go up in smoke that pushes renters into the home buying market. You can't get ahead paying rent, they reason. And, beyond the agreement of a rental lease, there' s no way to hold down rising rents. By contrast, mortgage payments generally 'remain stable from year to year Whether married or single, homeowners gain tax in centives that renters do not. A sizable portion of your mortgage interest and property tax can be deducted if you own a home. And the longer you own a home, the more equity you establish in your property. Essentially, owning a home becomes an investment, a valuable asset for future opportunities ALL Mortgage Questions May Be Mailed To: Yolanda Y. Anthony Licensed Mortgage Broker P.O.

As married women we agreed that what ever happened while traveling would stay in its place. This agreement went well for two years.

This is one example of an unfair sentence that the Fair Sentencing Act of 2010 was in tended to prevent. Even Senators Dick Durbin and Patrick Leahy, the leading congressional advocates of the new law, in a November 17, 2010 letter asked Holder Attorney General Eric to in struct his line of federal prosecutors to urge the federal courts to rule that sentence re ductions should be imposed for crack sentences issued after passage of the new law.
