HOLTON Sentinel City Editor The City of Tampa has un dertaken the project to rede velop Perry Harvey, Sr. Park. The renovation will take place in three phases. Mark Huey, City of Tampa Economic and Urban Development Administrator said, "One of our commit ments was to redevelop the park. As we began to document last year, we came up with the solution that it would be better if the City did it. We're going to hire a de signer and a builder and we're going to work from that C concept." fE Huey said the city will c use Community Develop Z ment Block Grant (CDBG) 1-accomplished with the coop-> eration of the Tampa Housffi ing Authority. Gj Huey said the renovation c will begin by the end of the W year, but no start date has established. The project :J wiil be completed in three phases. 11. The Perry C.

The park borders down town Tampa and the now de funct, famous Central Avenue Business District. The area consisted of a wide variety of businesses owned and operated by African Americans.

Ste 228 CONNIE HILL KEN ANTHONY ents Belmont Heights Estates Has Interim President BY LEON B. CREWS Sentinel Staff Writer When it comes to the res idents of Belmont Heights Estates (BHE), they have had two presidents who were vocal and outstanding repre sentatives of what the resi dents wanted and needed. First, there was AI Young. Replacing Young was Ms. Billi Griffin. Now that Ms. Griffin has moved away, the Interim President for BHE is Lula Harrell. Ms. Harrell has been a resident of the complex for 7 years, and worked closely with Ms. Griffin. Looking ahead to 2011, Ms. Harrell said she and vice president, Vivian Haley, have outlined a plan they will try to follow. "First, we're looking for ward to getting a bus for the senior residents so they can get to different places and events. We're also going to LUIA HARRELL strive to unite all three phases of BHE together. We must unite to do something about the rising crime in our complex." Ms. Harrell said she's already seen a lot of things that need to change, and feels many of the residents aren't being treated fairly. "I also want to get the phone in the senior center back on. No reason was given for it being disconnected in the first place. "As Interim President, I'm looking forward to meeting the needs of all residents of BHE. Some of our tentative goals are to return to having our fish fry fundraiser, Whacky Wednesdays, walk ing groups, and Bible study just to name a few. I will need everyone's support to make a difference in our commu nity." Ms. Harrell said in the next month or two, they will be holding elections for the official officers. All residents are eligible to be nominated for the positions of president, vice-president, secretary, and sergeant-at-arms. "I wouldn't mind staying on as president. I'm retired from the Health Department, and it's important the seniors have someone they can depend on." 'Hero' savs New Surroundings Have Her living In Terror From left to right: Renee Roundtree, Wisland "Rose" Louis-Paul Dodson, and Delores Keen. BY LEON B. CREWS Sentinel Staff Writer In June 2010 when Tampa Police Officers Jeff Kocab and David Curtis were gunned down during a traffic stop, the first persons to come to their aid were Delores Keen, Wisland "Rose" Louis-Paul Dodson, and Renee Roundtree. All three women were awarded by Tampa Police Chief Jane Castor and were given assistance in get ting toys for their children for Christmas, and for Keen and Louis-Paul Dodson, in finding a new place to live. Wisland Rose said they are very appreciative of all the things that were done for them, but after it was all said and done, they were basically left out to dry. "We kept hearing about all this money that was being donated for the wives of the two officers killed, and that's not a bad thing." "What I'm saying is we got nothing in terms of finance, and as far as being relocated is concerned; I wish I had never left my old place." Wisland Rose said she and Keen live in the area of town known as "Suitcase City," and they have been liv ing in pure terror since the first day they got there "Every area has its share ofproblems, but out here, it's worst than any place else. I've never seen an area this bad before." "We weren't here a week when we started hearing gun shots, and people arguing all the time. You just don't feel safe around here. It's as if the people out here just don't care about anyone." WISland Rose says she's managed to avoid several po tential confrontations by sim ply staying inside her apartment and not socializ ing with anyone. "You really can't trust anyone, because everyone wants something from you. They smile and say they are your friends, but as soon as you let them in your place, bad things happen." Wisland Rose, who is doing volunteer work with the East Tampa Weed and Seed Program, looking back, she wishes none of this had happened. "I wish those officers had not been shot, and I wish it hadn't happened so close to where we were living. That event has changed all of our lives, and not for the better. "I look forward to the day when I will be moving from out here."

Opinions expressed on editorial pages of this newspaper by Columnists or Guest Writers do not necessarily reflect the editorial stance of The Florida Sentinel Bulletin or the Publisher CitV's Fight With Lewis Should End Now J ust as surely as we believe in the magic of a blameless New Year, we also believe it is time for the Tampa Po-lice Department and the City of Tampa to stop fighting former Tampa Police Captain Marion Serious Lewis and to do the right thing by him. The recent ruling by the District Court of Appeals in favor of Lewis, who was forced to retire after he issued a public announcement in 2006 regarding his intent to run for the Office of Mayor of the City ofTampa, reversed the decision of a lower trial court, which had ruled against him. Furthermore, since the State of Florida's Election Of fice had already determined that the former TPD officer was not required to resign from police duty in order to run for mayor, w:e wondered if ego-injury was the real : reason for the zealous pursuit of Lewis' forced retire. ment. Indeed, since the filing of Lewis' legal challenge, several other suits have been lodged against TPD by former employees. We believe that department would do well to examine its policies", practices and procedures in order to reduce ts expenses for fighting what seems to us to be a lost .cause. Why? The Appeals Court bas spoken. Marion Serious Lewis has won. Let the war here and now! Babv Doc: Whv Himil WhvNowil The world gasped! Haiti trembled. Who could believe it, but the truth was smiling and waving like a doting grandfather for all the cameras to see. A monstrous wolf in sheep's clothing had returned like a dog to his vomit. The media ate it for breakfast. When Jean-Claude Duvalier (better known as "Baby Doc") left the heart of Haiti, the world watched him slink away in a caravan of black Mercedes, moments before the people of Haiti might have apprehended him and possibly strung him up by his heels. Now, he's back in the capital of the country he raped, and the people he victimized have nightmares of his goon-:-squads: The Tonton MaOddly enough, no harm has come to him. Sources say Duvalier was interviewed for s _everal hotp"S by a battery of Haitian officials who mysteriously could not find fault with the fox. Who, behind the scenes, is reason why Baby Doc scraped up the gumption to return to the scene of his mopumental crimes? What will happen if he decides to stay? Just when Haiti surmised life could get no worse, the unimaginable occurs. Is that Duvalier is homesick? Has he contracted an incurable disease and has come home to die? Or are the millions of dollars being poured into a bleeding Haiti even too much for a vampire like Baby Doc to ignore? As we hold our breath, and bite our nails, a pudgy-faced crocodile continues to shed tears. Let's see how long he cries. What To Expect From This Congress The 2011 Congress is now officially in ses sion. Republicans control the House of Representatives, while Democrats control the Senate and the White House. For the first time, Republi cans from the Tea Party are represented in Congress. No one is really quite sure what to expect out of this bunch. The Republicans are making all kind of promises and threatening to undo everything that President Barack Obama has done during his short administra tion. People are confused. They don't know what to ex pect from this Congress. I know what we can ex pect out of this Congress. We can expect a lot of actions that will be good for the na' tion. For the first part of 2011, expect a do-nothing Congress that will be as par tisan as any we have ever seen. Then one day Republi cans will realize that they re ally don't have as much power as they think they do. Then Democrats, Repub licans and President Obama will all come to real ize that none of them can get anything done without the other. They will realize that the American people don't expect Democrats, Republi cans and President Obama to sit in Washington playing partisan politics, get ting nothing done. They will realize that to do so will result in a losing proposition for all of them, including Pres. Obaina. After they realize that, they will begin to offer a lot of bi partisan sponsored legisla tion and compromises will Vote For Hineparts D id you see how it rained, last Martin Luther King Day? Lucky for me I was in my favorite greasy spoon, having my fa vorite breakfast or I would either have drowned or gotten my death of pneumonia. So, there I was . about to enjoy hot biscuits drenched in sausage gravy when yeah; you guessed it -in walked my favorite enemy, none other than Jay Algonquin Hines, himself (who the people call "Hineparts" behind his back, for obvious reasons). He was soaked. But on his head was a plastic cake hat with red-white-and blue stickers all around it. And what each sticker proudly proclaimed in red letters was "J. A. HINES FORMAYOROFTAMPA!" Hines sat down opposite me; rummaged in his pants pocket; pulled out a dingy white handkerchief and heroically attempted to wipe the water from his hat and face. Then he asked a waitress .. to bring him a cup whereby he poured himself a serving of my coffee, and just sat there with that hat on, glaring at me. Personally, I thought Hineparts had finally lost his mind, and I was about to tell him so, when he said in growling voice,' "I BETCHOU THINK I'M CRAZY!" And I answered, "No, the thought had never crossed my mind." (Ooh, I can lie; sometimes)! Hineparts continued, "Have you been reading the papers lately?" Now, he knew I had been reading the pa pers because spread out in front of me was The Florida Sentinel Bulletin (better known as The Senator to some people), The St. Pete Times as well as the Tampa So, 1 answered Hineparts, "CAIN'T YOU SEE?" As usual, Hineparts didn't answer, but charged directly .into what it was he wanted to talk about in the first place .. Said he, "Maaan, did you see all that money your new governor got, just for winning and for having that $3 million inaugural party? By the way," grimied -HiDes, you invited?" .... I asked to leave nie out of his oonrinents and get to the point. And so, he did. He said, "I'm nmning for mayor so that if I win, I'm gonna do like good ol' Governor surprised to find out that < Speaker Boehner isn't the jackass he appears to be and N will work more closely with Pres. Obama than many """"' expect. Pres. Obama has made it clear iliat he is willing to work wiili anyone iliat is willing to work for ilie good of ilie American people. Before too long, will be one of those people. Am I dreaming? Heck no. I finnly believe that it is good for the nation to have one house controlled by each party. It is much more diffi cult when one party controls both Chambers of Congress and the White House. When this happens, all we get is one party's rule and one party's ideas. Checks and balances go out the window. Therefore, I boldly predict that this Congress will be a very productive one. Repub licans already understand their 2010 election victories were not given out of love for them. They must produce. Rick and go and get me some big corporations to pay me back all the money I done spent, and I guarantee you, I will make out like a fat rat!" "A RAT? YES! BUT A FAT RAT, I DOUBT IT!" That's what I wanted to say. But what I said was "You have to win first." "11 r-0 az en m z -1 z m r-m c: r r m ::! z "U c: m r-u; :::z:: m c m -1 c m en c ):lo z c Hineparts interrupted me.

T"" T"" 0 The Historic Election ol2010 a: LL When Governor Rick Scott and Lt. Governor Jenifer Carroll launched their inaugural tour in De cember, a few newspapers ran an interesting picture of the team. Posed at Universal Studios, Scott and Carroll where smiling down at two Black children who looked mildly interested in their new found celebrity status It was a revelation of sorts because during the campaign, and in the Scott commercials, you had to squint to find a person of color, because they just weren't there. Carroll was not in Scott's main TV spots :;: only in the ad that they ran in C weekly Black newspapers the a: last two weeks of the camLL 0 paign Z Scott had pollsters and < so did Alex Sink. Scott's :;: pollsters told him what pollsters told Sink; 91% of W Blacks will vote for Sink. They were wrong. ij: 97% of Blacks casting balw lots actually voted for Alex Sink. It was astounding. No 0 Republican ticket has polled W so low among Blacks in Florida in 4 decades. Why? :::::i Well, the Florida Democratic m :::) D. z i= w ..J Party and the Sink cam paign advertised for 7 weeks in Black newspapers (20) and on radio (30 stations) But the big Kahuna in the room was President Barack Obama. Scott kept tying Sink to Obama and that combined with her message on education and job opportunity made her a friend and advocate to the community While Sink crushed Scott (by at least 2-1 and 4-1 in some) metro areas statewide he nickel and dimed her in about 40 rural counties and it added up to 6o,ooo votes. Losing by 6o,ooo is like losing by 2 in a state like Florida. Black turnout was higher than nor mal in an off presidential election year, but it wasn't enough. When you're running against a guy who reaches into his own stash to buy $70 million in spots, well that's pretty daunting. What I like most about Alex Sink is that she is smart, but more than that, she is very tough. A lot of things happened in this cam paign that would have bro u ght man y to th e ir knees. But s h e n eve r stopp ed. How e ve r the loss was painful mores o be c ause she wa s sup pos e d to win As dis a ppointing a s the out come of the election was for Blacks, there was a stinging lesson in it for Scott and Carroll. They know that they have to find a way to in crease Black support of the Republican nominee in 2012. So we can conclude sev eral things. The Black vote is clearly the determining factor in election outcomes. That's power. They know this. And with President Barack Obama out flank ing the GOP every day, peo ple get "the message." The President's approval rating is higher than any President at this point in his second term. Obviously, in 2012 the Re publicans will have to do better than 3 % of the 1.4 million of Florida s registered Black voters if they hope to deliver a critical state like Florida. The curtain is already clos ing. Governor Scott will have to take his own advice and, "Get to work."

Like so many other women, what she didn't real ize is that the moment she resorted to utilizing her body and sexuality to secure a place for herself in a man's life, she set herself up for failure That is not to say that creative inti macy is a bad thing. But, when dealing with the shal low nature of men, a woman's seduction strategy has to be perfectly timed regard them as being too easy to be considered "wife mate rial. It is this ever-present con tradictory thought process that refuses to allow us to completely appreciate the way a woman makes us feel without worrying about who else was treated to the same experience. A classic hang-up that not only stems from being raised in a society where women are held to an unrealistic moral standard, but one that also in volves the constant, unspoken fear many of us have of say ing, "I do to the wrong woman and waking up one day realizing we've married a human turnstile. Don t get me wrong, the average man wants a woman with a little edginess. His ego just has to be tricked into thinking that he's solely re sponsible for bringing the wildness out of her. For a woman currently looking for a long-term rela tionship, walking this tightrope isn't easy. Her abil ity to master the art of stimu lating a man's loins by manipulating his mind can make all the difference between her walking down the aisle With the man of her dreams now, or living alone with a pet and settling for whatever falls her way later.

Local 'TI ::0 c Educator Retires After 42 Years At One School c.. )> z c: )> ::0 -< BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel City Editor After graduating in 1960, a young man enrolled in an institution of higher learning to continue his education. Now, after more than 40 years as a Hillsborough County educator, he has decided to close this chapter of his life Hildreth Fleming graduated from Howard W Blake High School in 1960 and enrolled at Florida A & M University. Four years later, he earned his B. A. De gree in Social Studies. Fleming returned home and obtained employment with the United States Customs Department. He later followed his heart and joined the Hillsborough County School District. His first assignment was at Just Elementary School, where he completed his first year. The next year, he was assigned to Franklin Middle Magnet School. During his 42-year tenure, Fleming has witnessed the school evolve from segregation to integration. Next year, it will evolve again to an all male academy. He is retiring as the Student Intervention Specialist. During his tenure, Fleming has worked under the supervision of Hillsborough County School District Su perintendents and 14 principals. He shares a belief that the late Rev. Abraham Brown shared with him that remained throughout his career. Rev. Brown said, "Teaching will become more effective when we begin teaching the students and not HILDRETH FLEMING Retiring as Educator the mandated programs.' I believe that because you can't teach a child advanced Mathematics if he can't add.'' Of his retirement, Fleming said, "I decided that I have had an excellent career and now is the time. I want to spend more time with my ailing mother. I love kids and I will still be working with my church and with community programs. " I was able to help kids and I see some of them today who come up to me and say that I have helped them. N This was the same concern that was given to me by con-cerned teachers at Blake High School." ...... Fleming credits the inentoring programs of the 34th Street Church of God, the George Edgecomb Bar Asso ciation, the program of Dr. Pat Hauser, and the im plementation of the Golf Program at the school with helping the school reach success. However, he views success as a two-sided coin "An All Boys Academy has its benefits, if it is going toremain a true Magnet School such as Young and Williams. But it won't be successful if it is going to be a magnet school in name "The community has to become involved if Franklin is going to continue to be successful and the school can not be isolated. It must reach out to the community." A member of Beulah I. B. Church, Fleming works with youngsters through the church's mentoring pro gram as well as with the George Edgecomb Bar Association Mentor Group. ;!! A Tampa native, he is the son of Mr. and Mrs. F.

Citv Council Moves Ahead With Partial Panhandling Ban BY LEON B.

The ordinance on a partial ban was the idea of Council Chairman, Thomas Scott, who never accepted the idea of a complete ban.

Citv Council Addresses Issue 01 High Water-Bills BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel City Editor Several residents attended the regular meeting of the Tampa City Council to air complaints about high water bills. Council members as sured those in attendance that no one's water service would be disrupted and that their complaints would be evaluated. w The uncharacteristically high bills are reportedly af-fecting more than one area of the city. A representative from the City of Tampa Utilities told Council members that the City has not changed the process in which the fees are determined and that each complaint needs to be investi gated on a case-by-case basis. Interim Councilman Curtis Stokes expressed a con cern about the bills. "I want to suspend all water bill collec tion until this issue is re..: solved. The City must take some responsibility." Chairman Thomas Scott said, "We definitely have a problem. We need to make sure that the water is not turned off, but there is a problem somewhere." He also instructed the ad ministration to appear before Council. Chairman Scott also sug gested that the administration be given an opportunity to get to the bottom of the high water bills.

---------------------------------------,.,, ... c African American Foes In The Super Bowl Three African American head coaches have coached in the Super Bowl. Two of them have emerged as Super Bowl winners. On one occa sion, two African Americans faced off as the head coaches in the Super Bowl. This year, two African American head coaches have the chance to meet in the Super Bowl. The two coaches are Mike Tomlinson of the Pittsburgh Steelers and Lovie Smith of the Chicago Bears. Both of these two coaches have been head coaches in a Super Bowl before with Tomlinson winning one. All Tomlinson has to do to return to the championship game is beat the New York Jets. Coach Smith has to beat the Green Bay Packers and he is in. Unfortunately, the road to the Super Bowl will be tough for both of these coaches. Both the Jets and the Packers are playing some super football these days. If I was a betting man I would take those teams to win. Michael Frazier: An All American Plant High School sensa tion, Michael Frazier has more than lived up to his preseason build-up. While he didnit begin the season as an All American, the high scoring 6' 4" shooting guard should end the season as one. Teams begin play against Plant by plotting to stop Frazier. Teams nave employed all kind of defenses to stop the man. But, none of them have worked. Frazier is averaging 31+ points a game against all kind of defenses. Frazier can shoot from anyplace in the gymnasium. He can drive to the basket, shoot the pull up jumper or perform a rimrocking dunk shot. Please don't send him to the free throw line. He is deadly from there. Frazier, a junior, is one of the top basketball players in high schools all across America. Don't take my word for it, go see him. Theyoung man can flat out play. Upton, Highest Paid Ray B. J. Upton, the Tampa Bay Ray's centerfielder, is the highest paid player and he only makes $4.8 million a year. I wonder how much ace pitcher, David Price makes? Carl Crawford with his $142 million Boston Red Sox's contract can pay the salary for the whole team. The Rays have a small pay roll and it is the fault of the fans. The Rays cannot pay those big salaries with an average fan-paid attendance of around 13,000 fans. Maybe it is time the Rays come to realize that St. Petersburg isn't a Major League Baseball market.

Lawyers representing Ahanotu's ex-wife are trying to seize the ring to help pay more than $130,000 in legal fees owed by Ahanotu. Ahanotu tried to protect the ring by telling the judge he had given it to his brother to settle a debt. Atty. Matthew Thatcher, who is representing Ahanotu's ex-wife, asked when he gave the ring to his brother, and the response was in 2007. AhanotU never drafted a contract with his brother but produced a will stating his brother would inherit all of his belongings. The will was created two days after Ahanotu appeared in court on September 8th. When Ahanotu appeared in court in September, he said the ring was in his pocket, but revealed it was a replica. He previously said he exchanged the original ring for one made of white gold, not the original made of yellow gold. The court previously ruled his ex-wife's attorney needed an order to get the replica ring. However, the judge's ruling gives the attorney the right to sell the ring to pay off his debt. Ahanotu will have to produce the ring or risk being jailed for contempt of court.

Again PITTSBURGH-After dispatching the Baltimore Ravens, 31-24, in the AFC Divisional round on Saturday, it appeared the Pittsburgh Steelers were headed to New England for a date with the mighty Patriots. They should have known better. After all, this is becoming an old hat in the Steel City, isn't it? Clearly, they know the drill by now: Get the No. 2 seed in the AFC, watch the No. 1 seed fall flat, then get the AFC Championship game in their backyard. In fact-thanks to the New York Jets (13-5) and their 28-21 upset of the Patriots last Sunday -the Steelers (13-4) will get to host the title game for the fourth consecutive time that they've been a No. 2 seed. Pretty strange, indeed. But, hey, the Steelers aren't about to complain. "It's better to play at home," safety Ryan Clark said. "It's huge."

"It's rough," Jennings said Monday. "It's probably one of the worst -probably the worst-in the league." Jennings noticed Seattle receivers slipping as chunks of the field came up during the Seahawks' playoff loss in the snow at Chicago, and said the Packers will have to pay close attention to their foot ing Sunday. GREG JENNINGS "You have to go out before the game, pregame, and kind of get a feel of what you're working with, what you're dealing with, get your foot ing, because that's going to play a huge, huge role in the game," Jennings said. "But you can't allow that to affect the way you play."

There are many people who are surprised their life is as it is. When they stand in their current place and consider from where they have come, many would conclude, "I had no idea." This is not just for those who feel that they have reached a level of success. This also applies to those who have fallen on hard times or those who have made less than favorable choices and found them selves in trouble. If you ask them they never would have thought that their life would be as it is. While this may not be true for all, it does apply to many. There is one to whom your life is no surprise. The one who is not surprised is the One who created you and gave you life, God. God had a purpose for you before your father knew that your mother existed. Isaiah writes to convey this message to the people in this week's lesson, chapter 49 verses 1-7. In these verses he shares with his readers how God knew him and how God had a plan for his life. To the person who might read this and feel that be cause of where they are that God is unfair, be encouraged. You can be encouraged be cause you can make a right choice that can change your life. Isaiah writes in verse 1 that the Lord had called him from the womb; from the bowels of his mother. You are not an after thought to God. God knew you from the start. God had a purpose and a plan for you, regardless of how you see it. While in the womb you are protected. The mother's body serves as a protective cell and her immune systems BROWN MEMORIAL CHURCH OF GOD IN CHRIST 2313 E. 27th AVE.

Isaiah sa y s that God hid him in the shadow of His hand and His quiver (vs. 2). A quiver is the bag that holds arrows. It is in these places that God will hide you to protect you from the evils and forces that come to destroy and kill. The only time you are at risk of destruction is when you make choices to get out of His hand or come out of the bag. God's purpose for hiding you is stated in verse 3 You are His servant and He will be glorified in you. You are God's chosen elect. He wants to use you, not so you can boast and brag ; but so He can be glorified. He speaks of the awe someness of God in verse 5 The writer said that although he is living in a chaotic state, yet in the eyes of God, he will be glorious and God shall be his strength. You can allow this to bless you! You glorifying God has nothing to do with the situation you see yourself in, but rather it is how the God in your situation sees you! God does not see you like y ou see what is going on around you. You c a n stand in th e mid dle of a garbage dump When God looks down in that garbage dump, he won't see y ou as garbage, He will see you as treasure sur rounded by garbage! And God uses him and will use you to guide people back to Him. God will use you to help others be saved. You may not have known how your life was going to turn out. You still do not know! But God does! God already knew. He knew, when, where and how. If you want to know, just ask Him!

Out of all the various stroke risk factors here are a few things we might be doing to cause one. Eating A High-Fat Diet -The same associated with heart attacks, including red meat and anything fried, can also raise your risk of a brain attack. Being Single-If you're a man who'd like to cut his chances of a fatal stroke, get hitched. But there's a catch: The marriage has to be a happy one. Being Unhappy-Happi..: ness is music to your cardio vascular system. Even if you're not happy, it might pay to act like you are. Being Obese More weight means a higher risk of stroke. Smoking Lighting up nearly doubles your risk of stroke. Fortunately, quitting can drop that risk back down, even forheavy smokers. Being Born In The Wrong Demographic Blacks are twice as likely as whites to have a stroke, and women aged 35 to 64 are almost three times as likely to have a stroke as men of the same age. Reasons may be that Blacks have higher rates of high blood pressure and dia betes, and women in midlife carry more abdominal fat than men, all risk factors for stroke Soh Drinks And Juices Mav lead To Gout In the past, men seemed to develop gout more often than women. But times are chaning and that painful arthritic con dition appears to be increasing .-.. I ,...,.. ' in women. The possible culprit could be the fructose that sweetens soda and otherbeverages. Gout isn't just painful it can cripple joints and may lead to cardiovascular disease. Gout develops as a result of uric acid in the blood the crys tallizes and lodges in the joints, causing pain. Be aware that even one fruc tose sweetenedsoda or juice a day increases a woman's risk of developing gout. Confidence Begins With A Beautiful Smile! Improve Your Smile Tod
