The charge was filed after medical personnel at St. Joseph s Hospital deter mined his son s mJuries weren t the result of an acci dent. Police said Poole report edly threw 16-month-old Ronderique Anderson on a bed, causing his head to hit the wall or dresser He also allegedly hit the baby with an open hand and a belt that caused bruising on his buttocks and legs. The pun ishment was reportedly for playing near an electrical wall socket. Ronderique suffered a s kull fractur e causing his brain to bleed and according to doc tors it appears he won t survive his injuries The grandmother of the toddler Tashia Nunn-Scott, said when they got news of her grandson s injuries she and her daughter (the child's mother), Fredrina Scott, rushed to the hospital. "All of us were sitting in the waiting room of the intensive care unit when we were told visRONDERIQUE ANDERSON ..... on life support iting hours were over and we had to leave. We were told to go downstairs to the lobby and wait there. We tried explaining to them the severity of Ronderique's injuries, but that didn t make any difference.

Answer: Pups that chase cars and Black folks that talk too much!" Now, the question has changed, and it's no longer a joke. It reads, "Who dies fast?" Answer: "Black folks with salt shakers, cigarettes and fried food!" That's right. Those three are killing Black Americans faster than anything else, according to medical experts. However, the antidote is simple if not miraculous. Put on your walking shoes and start hoofing it for 40 minutes to an hour, at least three times a week. And that just might keep you from dying from a heart attack. February is National American Heart Month. Research has revealed cardiovascular disease is our number one killer. And when we say "our," we mean "us!" And if you're Black, that means you! Directly behind cardiovascular disease are strokes. But recently, geneticists added salt, cholesterol problems and bad-ol' cigarette smoking to the "Wanted" list. So, for you who have. ears, remember the question we asked at the beginning of this editorial: Who dies fast? You will, if you don't listen! Africa Or FCAT Who was America's first Black President? Who was the first Black woman to become a millionaire? Who led the first slave revolt against the French in Haiti? Who was the first Black man in the Civil War to earn the Congressional Medal of Honor?" Since, for the past 35 years, February has been National Black History Month, one might naturally assume American public schools -including the Slh largest school system in the nation (Hillsborough County Public Schools)-would be busily sharing with their students the immense history of the American Black Experience. What rumor tells us is many schools -perhaps, even public schools in our beloved Hillsborough County -are feverishly gearing up, not for Black History, but for FCAT.'Sources say teachers are once again being refitted for their duty to make certain students help maintain overall school ratings at least above a "D" average. Con-. sequently, on many school agendas, so the rumor goes, Black History has got to wait! But if such is so, we bitterly protest. We want our children-Black, white, Asian and Latin Hispanic-to know that John Hanson, in 178:i, was America's first Black President; to know that America's first Black female millionaire was Madame C. J. Walker; that the first successful slave revolt in Haiti was led by Toussaint L'Ouverture; and that William Harvey Carney was the first Black man during the Civil War to win a Medal of Honor. Yes, we understand the importance of FCAT. But we also understand the importance of our children being taught the heritage and history of America's Black Experience. Healthcare: Repeal Versus Improve The United States con gress and President Obama's administration spent nearly two years trying to draft and pass the Afford able Healthcare Act. The task was made difficult because Republicans did not want healthcare reform. Now that the Act has passed and is the law of the land, the Republi cans want to repeal it. Granted, we don t want or need Congress and the Obama administration fight ing another two years over the healthcare law or health care r e form. It is a fact that the current healthcare law isn't perfect. There is no doubt that the law can be im proved. Which brings me to the question, What would be the best thing to do?' Improve the law or repeal it? Common sense says the non-political thing to do is to improve the current law. There are things in the current law that no body likes. By the same token, there are some things in the law that everybody likes, includ ing the repeal-bent Republi cans. Even President Obama admits that the bill isn t perfect and is willing to work across the congressional aisles to improve the law. It seems to me that this way is much easier than trying to re build the entire law. It doesn't make sense to repeal the good things about the bill and start over from scratch. In reconstructing the Healthcare Act, do the Re publicans plan on putting the good features back into a new bill? If so, then why repeal the good features and then put them back? While a good, effective healthcare bill is to be de sired, we can only spend just e Sol.eSpea No One Wants To Ask Or Answer I n a little more than a month, four law enforcement professionals in the state of Florida have lost their lives in the process of serving warrants. These mishaps are not the firsts of their kind to occur. Doubtless, they will be the last tragedies to cause two towns, a state and a nation to take notice. But what will not happen anytime soon is the painful process of second-guessing a deadly situation that may or may not have been able to have been avoided. However, out of respect for the future, I have several so-called tough questions I must respectfully ask. Reading last week's paper, I simply could not ig nore a comment made bytl1e murderer's so-called wife She said, I told him (Hydra Lacy, Jr.) he can t do nothing to me anyway." Said she, "I always told him, no matter what, he's got a criminal background, he's a black man, I'm a white girl." Then she finished her statement witl1 the damning comment, "They're going to believe me before they believe him! Now, whether her words were true, false or indifferent, as a Black man freshly out of prison, not wanting to return to prison and enraged by my wife's insults, I could just imagine how I would have felt when the police came to my door, and my wife informed them, "He's up in the attic. Sources say she said told the first officer, "He has a gun." If that is so, I don' t know what to think. What I want to ask is "Why didn' t he wait? (the first officer, I mean). "Why didn' t they call for back-up, especially in tl1e presence of a burly man hold-up in a crawl-space attic with Godknows-what-kind-offirearms on his person? "Why didn't they wait? " Was it their call to climb up those cramped steps to face God-knows-what?" Then another question slides up and tugs my sleeve. One of the officers-inmention was a canine officer. "Why didn't he use his dog?" Surely, if be had unleashed 100 pounds of fierce Gennan Shepherd at 20 miles-anhour in one bound, the dog solving the two war -< headaches and resolving our _.J;>. immigration problem, all needs to be dealt with over :::!: the next two years That does not include items like the aging infra structure, creating our own energy sources, improving our education system, creat ing good and profitable trade agreements, improving for eign relations or our rising debt deficit. All of these things need to be addressed over the next two years I submit to you that these items cannot be dealt with if Congress and the President spend the next two years fighting over healthcare re form. A compromise needs to be reached where both parties give up something in order to make healthcare more effec tive and more affordable. "T1 The battle isn't between r repeal and improvement. In-stead, it is throwing out the C politics and doing what is best )> for the American people as ef-en fectively and affordably as possible. ::::! would most likely have homed in on Lacy like a guided missile bit the man into submission, and everyone would have lived to tell z m r IIJ c: r r m ::::! z about it ... maybe. Right now, I feel police IIJ officers' hot breath on my neck and my typing arm. ::::t "You weren't there, damn you! How dare you make as-m sumptions!!" My reply is re-spectful and humble. "No, I :a wasn't there. But what ought we to do to keep others from c: having to go there?" rn But I have other ques-C tions. Someone told me our military has a mechanism )> that can literally see-through-walls. Weighing 3.5 "T1 to 6 pounds, hand-held, and :0 using low power ultra-wide-C band radio waves, this weapon can peer through anything, but metal. Further more, fire stations already have it. "Why not police agencies?" But then comes the toughest question. Realizing an armed man was hold-up in a difficult-to-access area, why not simply wait him out?" What might the out-111e have been, had law en cement professionals used c.ir most important weapon: l'ime? The above and other "tough questions," in time, must not only b; approached, but must be approaelled repeatedly until. a reasonable answer is found, which, if followed, might help a future po lice offic r go V' home afely. .1 :J>

Cops Pull The Trigger Being in prison is probably the worse situation any human being can experience and still be above the dirt. It is a place where a person can lose his manhood as well as his humanity if he's not care ful. Long lonely nights contem plating a never ending list of "what if' scenarios, are fol lowed by even longer days of dodging creeps, con-men and predators all trying to take advantage of the slightest sign of weakness. Over time trying to navigate this kind of environment can have an adverse impact on the mentality of the strongest ::t man. c Because I've been doing my a: best to survive this matrix for LL c z < ::t c en w ::> 1-> a: w > w c w :I: en :::::i m ::> a. almost nine years, I can understand the mindset of individuals who, upon release, would rather die than make a return trip. What I can't understand is why people continue to place themselves in positions where they have to make that choice? Over the last several weeks stories have come out of different parts of the country where police have been involved in shootouts with well armed assailants And in almost every instance, the person involved was an excon who decided to "hold z i= w ...J ...J court in the streets" instead of going back to prison. ...J As one of the few people W who survived such an z i= encounter with law enforceZ ment, I think I'm qualified to say that each and every per-c< son who decides to take such desperate actions is nothing less than a complete idiot. ...J Not just for engaging in a LL losing effort against trained marksmen and choosing death over life, but for not flying the straight and narrow when they knew that they couldn't handle another stint in the slammer. Granted, I've never had the experience of re-entering society after a long incarcer ation. So there may be some pressures I'm unaware of that can drive a person to this kind of behavior. But I've learned enough during my time behind the se walls to know that any temptation to do wrong co uld be easily que ll e d by the thought of returning to a 8x10 cell and listening to another man uri nate, defecate and pass gas for an extended period of time. Those close to me have heard me say on more than one occasion that I'd rather live as a homeless person, than exist under thes e condi tions. Compared to m y view of razor wire and chainlinked fences living in a box under the Courtney Campbell Causewa y doesn t seem half bad I mean, yo u can always come up from being dead broke. Trying to come from under a life sentence, that' s a different animal all tog e ther. And I think that' s what happens to a lot of these guys. After being on the street for a couple of years, they tend to forget what it was like in the joint. The daily violence, the dehumanization, the dirty food trays and the morning ritual of praying that you can make it another 24 hours without having to take someone's life before they take Celebrating Black Historv Month yours, all of these atrocities get lost somewhere in the back of their minds. They get comfortable, decide to make one more run at glory and it's not until they're faced with the very real possibility of going back, does the experience of what they escaped come back to the forefront of their memory. But by then, it's too late They don't have the heart to kill themselves, so they allow the police to do it for them. I imagine it's their way of preventing themselves from being just as doomed in the afterlife as they were in this one. Whenever I read about these types of incidents occurring, it's not just the loss of life that gets me. It is the underlying message. It reminds me of the true value of freedom, what p eo ple will do to k eep it and how much we all take our lib e rties for granted until we're threatened with losing them forev er.

Ms. Riddle said what s he hadn't planned on was the at mosph ere on the job, and being s ingl ed out almost the first week she started. I took some time off be cause my child was sick, and when I went back I was told they had no work for me and I didn't have a job anymore.

The magazine's founder, Mrs. Marie TarverWhite, said it is with God's grace and blessing she has been able to restart the mag azine. "In 1992 my husband, Pastor Donald White and the late John "Big John" Stephens were talking and sa id there is a dire n ee d for a magazine strict l y about the church This was innovative at that time, and it was divine int erve ntion that God let this happ en." The magazin e flourished until 2005 w h en Mrs. Tarver-White took time off to bury h er mother and battl e ca n cer Now she feels this is the best time to bring it back. I consider this a ministry of what God wants me to do MARIE TARVER-WHITE and I consider myself a ser vant of God. "We're committed to clos ing the gap to help people like unsung heroes who go about their daily lives helping peo ple but never get any recogni-ti. on. Mrs. White said the publication will be reaching all over the country, and she's go ing to use it as a beacon of light to others. There will also be a Black History presenta tion given during the celebra tion. One of the writers for the magazine, Ms. Leafie Lee, said they're just trying to reach God's people. "We try to put a goo d Christian based publication out there and we feature area pastors, churches, and have readers all over the state. I re a lly enjoy writing for thi s magazine and because of what I do in my church, this allows me to reach further. Arthur McKay, another writer for the publication, said he's excited and happy the magazine is returning. "This is something very important to the church com munity. We have evolved so much, and the magazine sheds light on that. It will also identify the people in our community who really do good work, but are never re cognized." The minister for the mag azine, Pastor Donald White, said the magazine is much needed and is an out reach ministry for Mt. Carmel. "In today's society, it's good to have Christian maga zines out there with informa tion that can be passed on to the next generation."

You also won't see perhaps the greatest team owner in the history of professional sports, the late Art Rooney, smoking one of his famous stogies. What you will see is two teams who survived their 16 game regular season schedule and the playoffs to get to the season finale, Super Bowl XLV. A few people in the area were called and asked for their predictions on the game. These are their responses. East Tampa Development Manager, Ed Johnson: ''I'm a native of Pennsylvania; so I'm picking the Steelers all the way. I think defense will be the key, and I think the Steelers have the best. I also fee l the legacy of the late Art Rooney will live forever in Pittsburgh and they will always be champions." Tampa Housing Authority Vice President, Leroy Moore: "I've got the Steelers all the way. They've been my team since the 1970s and the days of the Steel Curtain." I can still see them killing eve.ryone in front of them, and I think they have the most stories franchise in his tory. They've had only three head coaches in 42 years, and that speaks a lot for a solid franchise and consistency I'll say the Steelers will win 31-21." Howard W. Blake Head Football Coach, Harry Hubbard: Pittsburgh should win, but I mus t say there were some good teams that L--_..:..:...__. didn't make it. " I think Pittsburgh has the better defense and their pressure will make the difference. I'll pick the Steelers, 28-14." Sickle Cell CEO, Frank Reddick: ''I'm a longtime fan of the Steelers, so Iill stick with them. Th ey have an outstanding defens e and I think they will handle Aaron Rodgers and cause him to Super BowlllV Sundav, Feb &th -&:30 p.m. -FOX GREEN BAY PACKERS PITTSBURGH STEELERS 9" Roller .................. : ............... !"" $1.,50. nt Brushes ............ ................... : ...... LIMIT 2 WITH THIS AD ONLY!! make a lot of mistakes "It will be a close game, but the Steelers will win 28-21." High School Football Coach, Charles "Chuck" McDonald: "These are two great teams. Neither was my choice at the beginning ofthe season. "Steeler head coach Mike Tomlin is my fraternity brother and the cornerback at Green Bay, Nick Collins, played with my son in college. That makes me kind of torn. ''I'd lov e to see Nick get a ring, because his dad died a couple of years ago and he dedicat e d his career to him. I know Pittsburgh is physical, but Collins is representing a ll historical Black co lleges and univer s iti es and I want to see him win. Former Chicago Bear and Super Bowl XX winner, Tyrone Keys: This is an evenly matched game. Pittsburghhas been there, but the Packers and Rodgers have been hot. Let s see if he can keep it going. Iill pick the P ackers, 24-17. This Sunday in balmy, freez ing Irving, Texas, the history of neither team will matter. It will come down to who is the most physical, and who can put their best players on the field. Many early observers have picked the Packers to prevail and say Packer quarterback Aaron Rodgers is poised to exorcise the ghost of Brett Favre and claim his own world title. The Packers will enter the contest with a stout defense and a renewed running attack. They also have veteran wide receivers who can get down The Steelers will have the youngest head coach in the NFL, M i k e Tomlin, seeking his MIKE TOMLIN second Super Bowl in three seasons, and to make himself the only African American head coach with two Super Bowl victories. No matter what Steeler quarterback Ben Rothelisberger or Rodgers say in their pre-garrie speech es, the game will be settled in the trenches. Sentinel Prediction: Steelers 27, Packers 24.

ealth jl Acne And Menopause Prevent cancer The 2-Minute Diabetes Q&A With SeafOOd H e r e's how to know if Maintaining a good self-care regimen is necessary for skin health throughout your life, but it is especially important for women experiencing the dual challenges of delicate skin and breakouts during menopause. Dermatologists recommend: Daily Cleansing: Wash your face twice a d ay with a gentle, nondryin g clea nser fol low e d by a light moisturiz er. A Gentle Approach: Harsh products and vigorous scrubbing are a definit e no-no for mature skin that can be easily irritated or damaged. No Picking: Squeezing or picking at pimples must be avoided completely since skin, which becomes more fragile at menopause, may scar more easily In addition to proper skin care, women should reevaluate their cosmetics collection Oil based cosmetics can exacer bate the problems for skin that is already clogged with excess oil. Look for water-based or mineral cosmetics to replace oily products and take extra care to remove all traces of makeup when you wash your face.

BARACK OBAMA HONOLULU Moving to dispel claims that President Barack Obama was not born in Hawaii, his ers in the state's legislature have introduced a bill that would allow anyone to get a copy of his birth records for a $100 fee. The idea b ehind the mea-sure is to end skepticism over Obama's birthplace while raising a little money for a government with a projected budget deficit exceeding $8oo million over the next two years. "If it passes, it will calm the birthers down, said the bill's primary sponsor, Rep. Rida Cabanilla. "All these people are still doubting it because they don't want the birth certificate from Obama.

Officer Gilbertina Wright joined th e depat1ment and par alleled th e success of Captain Dixon. She rose to the rank of Assistant Chief. She became the highest ranking f e mal e at the department. BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel City Editor When Bennie Holder joined the Tampa Police D e pat1ment in 1973, it was the realization of a childhood dream. Although he felt he had what it took to become the Chief, h e never felt an African American would serve in that capacity during his career. However, in 1993, then former Mayor Sandy Freedman promoted easy for Mayor Freedman, but "s he had the intestinal for-:= titude to do it." During his tenure, Holder said the Tampa Po lice Department was one of the most respected in the country because it had stabil ity at the top to change the culture of the department. He credits the incoming former Mayor Dick Greco with keeping the leadership of the department stable when he took office. Holder from the rank of Major to that of the Chief of Police. Not only did he b e come the first African Ameri can to serve in that capac ity he skipped two promotional grades in the process. Holder served as Chief for ten years He still holds the record of serving longer than any other Chief in the history of the department. FORMER TAMPA POLICE CHIEF BENNIE HOLDER After serving for a decade, he retired in 2003. Since that time, he has worked as a Consultant and launched a private investigative service. How ever, he said he is just enjoy ing life. Holder is married to Mrs. Louise Holder. They are parents of two children 0 and grandparents of three. :::J:J Carl Davis also rose to the rank of major. He was forced into retirement when his de partment was eliminated during reorganization Pieart TRUTH In retrospect, Holder said his goal was to retire as a Ser geant. As time passed, he continued his education and his goals broadened He obtained his A. S. Degree from Hillsbor ough Community College and his B. A. Degree in Criminol ogy from St. Leo University. I had critics inside the department and outside It wasn t always easy because I felt that I was under a micro scope from the Black commu nity and the white community I felt I had to carry th e torch for the next person. "But one of the most stressful things about being the first was I had to do the job and I didn;t want to em barrass my race or this city. After the first, it's not such a big deal anymore. He also said the decision of making him Chief was not Looking back over his ten-g y ear role as the Chief of Police, en Holder said he followed what m was in his heart and he would-n't change anything.

When he was hired, his aspira tions like so many other Blacks before him was simply to reach the first level of manage ment He wanted to becom e a sergeant. However, he describes an eye-opening experience that took place that change his thought process and encour aged him to attain a higher level of management. I felt that sergeants were very respected back the n a nd the officers really looked up to them. All I ever wanted to be was a sergean t and when I r eac hed th a t level I was h appy. I was in m y comfort zone But during a Black History Program Chief Bennie Holder gave me a few c hoic e wor ds and it was clear that I h ad to go further So, I took the test for lieutenant, passed it, and was promoted to Lieu tenant. I was very depressed. Major Honeywell real ized that there were few others in a position to be promoted and that the goal of the Chief MAJOR GERALD HONEYWELL was to increase the number of African Americans in hig h ranking positions. He knew that if everyone took the posi tion that h e h ad, then th e pro motion of Blacks would come to a s tandstill. Chief Holder retired in 2003, and now Major Honeywell finds him se lf in the same position as Chief Holder. He wants to see other African Americans prepare the mselves educationally to b e in a position for upward mobil ity. I loved every minute of being a Sergeant and I know that many of the officers today History is still happening, expect more to come ... fee l as I did. I r ealize that they may b e h appy in the positions that they are in and that this may be thei r comfmt zones. But Chief Jane Castor wants diver s it y in the department. She wants the depart ment to reflect the community it serves. She believ es in diver sity and selecting the best per son for the job That cannot happen if the young African American officers are not in a position to be promoted. They must be ready on the job, the y must take and pass the examinations and they must earn th e ir degrees to be educationally ready for promo tion as well.
