WILLIAMS Bodv 01 Missing Man Found In River Estella Acree said she and her middle son, Christopher Harrington, had a very spe cial relationship. Since he was born with Downs Syndrome, Harrington spent all of his time with his mother and sib lings. Ms. Acree is President of the Rainbow Heights Neigh borhood Association. On Tuesday, Harrington was riding in the backseat of his caregiver's car when the driver stopped to pick kumquats from a tree. When the caregiver re turned to the car, Harrington was missing. He searched the area without any luck, then called 9-1-1. Police searched for Harrington and reported finding his sandal near South River Boulevard Wednesday morn ing. His body was discovered a half-hour later in the Hillsbor ough River He was 38 years old. Ms. Acree said she wasn't surprised that he wound up in the water. "He really loved splashing around in the water. When I got the news he was missing, I CHRISTOPHER HARRINGTON hoped everything would turn out okay, but I remembered when I'd take him to the beach, he'd start taking his off to get into the water. That's why I wasn't surprised that's where they found him." Ms. Acree said Chris loved music and virtually any thing that made noise. "He really loved game shows, being around people, and in church when the music started playing and the singing started, he'd start moving and really enjoyed that. "I remember when he'd be in the car with me and we'd be traveling down Hillsborough Avenue. He'd see the Burger King sign, and make a sound like he was putting on brakes. He'd start hollering, and made sure I didn't miss it That was his favorite eating place, but he mostly ate vegetables." Ms. Acree said Chris would sneak food out of the re frigerator when he was sure no one was looking. Harrington had two brothers, one older and one younger. His younger brother, Robert, said he got a caH on Tuesday that Chris was miss ing, and immediately got into a car and drove from Georgia to be with the family. "I had just flown in from Iraq Monday, and got the news the next day." Ms. Acree said she will truly miss Chris. "It s really hard now, and he brought so much joy into my life. I'd take pictures of some of the things he'd do, and I'll miss him lying across my lap watch ing television Ms. Acree has contacted Harmon's Funeral Home to help the family with arrange ments for a service Police Request Restrictions For Murder Suspect BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel City Editor Earlier this month, the Tampa Police Department re quested that an inmate's tele phone and visitations privileges be restricted. The reason for the request was safety concerns discovered. According to Ms. Laura McElroy, spokesperson for the Tampa Police Department, the Tampa Police Department requested that Dontae Morris, 25, not have telephone rights or visitation. Ms. McElroy said, "We did this to protect the safety of witnesses in the case. This is an ongoing investigation and I can't go into details about what happened to cause us to take this action." Denied bond since his ar rest, Morris has been incar cerated for 271 days. He is facing five first-degree murder charges, 3 counts of fe.on in possession of a firearm, 2 counts of armed robbery, and 1 count of escape while trans porting . Morris is charged with the deaths of Derek Anderson, May 18; Rodney Jones, May 31; Harold Wright, June 8; Tampa Police Officer David Curtis, and Tampa Police OfficerJeffKocab, June 29. After a traffic stop, Tampa Police Officers Jeffrey Kocab and David Curtis DONTAE MORRIS were shot and killed. Officer Curtis had stopped a vehicle being driven by Ms. Cortnee Brantley because the license plate was not visible. Ms. Brantley puiied over on the side of N. soth Street, between 23rd Avenue and 26th Avenue, shortly after 2 a.m. and both occupants identified themselves to the officer. Morris allegedly fired the fatal shots, striking both officers as they attempted to arrest him on an active warrant. Ms. Brantley fled in the vehicle and Morris fled on foot. He surrendered after police launched a massive, na tionwide manhunt . Privileges Taken Before His privileges were taken earlier during the month, but Ms. McElroy said the Tampa Police had nothing to do with it, and that incident must have ANDRE WATKINS resulted from some infraction at the jail.

During the cere mony, it will honor two retired employees and present them with the Kente Awards for outstanding contributions to education.

Opinions expressed on edit9rial pages of this newspaper by Columnists or Guest Writers, do not necessarily reflect the editorial stance of The Florida Sentinel Bulletin cir the Publisher I A Black Man As Commander-In-Chief I F rom the first week he took office, observers and detractors incessantly asked what kind of man would President Barack Obama be, if he ever had to lead America into a military conflict. Now they know. Forget the fact that President Barack Obama's first official focus as America;s newest Commander-in-Chief was a military response to an African nation. Remember that Libya currently supplies none of America's petroleum needs. America's first Black president assessed the Libyan situa9on and, with information provided him, directed American forces to go on the offensive, thereby averting the deaths of thousands of innocent Libyan men, women and children. We are sorry that President Obama had to let loose the dogs of war. We would rather he had been able to arrive at a more peaceful solution, in keeping with his Nobel Peace Prize. However, we must note that Obama's quick thinking will go down in history as a far cry from the one-year deliberation of his predecessor to come to the aid Bosnians, or not to come to the aid of slaughtered Sudanese, or Rwandans, at all. For his sharpness of decision and for his tough-minded humanitarianism, we congratulate President Barack Obama. For, not only is he becoming a great Black president, but by his handling of Libya, he has shown that he does have the makings of one of the most capable presidents in American history. I Gov. Rick And His Tallahassee Buddies I Most certainly, continuous finger-pointing at an affably-oblivious Governor Rick Scott would not only be too easy, but it would be too incorrect; For, if the truth be told, Governor Rick Scott is not up in Tallahassee raising hell all by himself. He has friends. Take, for instance, Florida's growth management protections and the 1985 law that guaranteed citizens and conserv_ationists could not be pushed around by big-time developers. Thanks to Rick and friends, sources say we can bend over and kiss all of that good-bye. Ask a native son and Tampa land use lawyer Ron Weaver about the situation, and watch him smile as he explains "Citizens are just as empowered as they used to be." Then be clears his throat and growls, "They're just going to have to pick important state issues rather than nit-picking." Harrumpb! So, that's what it is "nit-picking!" That term in itself doesn't seem to be so ridiculous until one realizes that the8e days, most every objection to the shenanigans going on in Tallahassee is met by an accusation of"nit-picking!" Well, if nit-picking is what seems to be pounding Conservative Tea-Party Republican war then perhaps, the entire State Capitol must be on fire with nit-picking. And in the midst of all the nit-picking is our favorite nit-. picker, Governor "Let' em Eat Cake" Rick Scott, whose favorite Steven Erkle explanation, "Did I do that?" becomes more macabre with the realization that Florida seems to have two Tallahassees: The one we read about in the paper.s and the one who runs the state and makes his friends lots of money. E very since last Novem ber's election swept a wave of Republicans into office they have been on a rampage to destroy the needy, deprive senior citizens, destroying public education, crucifying unions and teach ers and killing jobs all while making the rich richer. For years, Black people walked around with a fist full of food stamps and not voting, using the excuse that they don't get involved in politics. I wonder if they realize that food stamps themselves are politics. If not, they may be about to find that out. Some governors and public led legislatures are talking about suspending food stamps for workers who go on strike. I believe that effort to be the prelude to Republicans get ting rid of food stamps completely. Generally food stamps, wel fare checks, Section 8 housing and Medicaid are packaged together. For those who re ceive any of the benefits, you had better keep a watchful eye on your governor and your Republican dominated legis lature. Before the 2012 elections, we could be without food stamps, Section 8, welfare checks, Medicare and many government provided social services. The first step in this direc tion could be the all important food stamps. I ask you Black folks, with all of this looming on the hori zon, when will you get in volved in politics? What will it take to turn us into voters who turn out to vote in large num bers for every election? It matters who gets elected to repre sent you. The wrong candidate in office can cause our race to pay a crippling price for at least four or five years. I ask you, are you concenied at all about your child's education? If you are, you have proba bly heard the common expres sion that education is expensive. In Florida there is a move to cut FTE funding per child the next school term. Is that a time to get political? But back to food stamps. lJ 0 }< > "tt lJ r-..... We seem to associate with these necessary evils really well. I want to remind you once again, food stamps could be next to go by way of the 0 budget axe. We need to keep :!! up with the news on a daily basis. Every day laws that af-en feet you and your family are in !2 the news. ::! z m r-m c: r rm ::! z Governor Scon And Ponv Training "tJ c: m c C/) :::J: m 0 ot..her day, while trying heroically to finish my store-bought cheeseburger, I was overcome by a conversation several ta bles away from me, which in volved a young woman who was enthusiastically explain"ing to her friend (who was also attempting to finish her lunch) about the woman's younger sister, who had called her up and complained about her daughter's refusing to stay seated on her pretty little potty. As the woman's friend slurped down what appeared to be final forkfuls of spaghetti and meatballs, her friend with closed eyes and mouth wide, left out no detail about the woman's sister's little girl and the problems she was having as she learned how to regulate her bowels. And it was at that moment, I thought about Rick Scott and the fun he }llUSt be having, up in Tallahassee. No doubt, this man, Rick Scott, had taken personal rudeness to a new Snoop Dogg political level. Take, for instance, when he went before the entire State Black Caucus and insulted every one of them by saying, "I used to live in the ghetto, just like you guys," or something similar to that, he said. Then he turned around and lectured minorities and anybody else who would listen on the do's and do!l'ts of polit ical cronyism, assuring every one that his basis for favoritism had nothing in the world to do with one s cultural uniqueness or the color of one's skin! (But did I leave out the color of one's money?) But what is it about Rick Scott that we find so irre sistibly obnoxious? Is it the fact he reminds us of a used car salesman who stuck us years ago, for a BMW that never ran? Or is it the fact he reminds us of obscenely ob noxious people who have done things, and continue to do things that, by wheedling de grees, drive us stark-raving nuts? Take, for instance, people who don't mind clearing their nasal passages repeatedly over the dinner table . people who don't mind sneezing or blowing their noses in the kitchen . people who've been caught several times picking their noses over the popcorn, or making all sorts of weird, insufferable noises while other people are trying to watch the 6 o'clock news in the same room. All of the above situations are signals that the perpetra tors don't give a rat's puh-tudy about anyone else or anything else but themselves. And such considerations bring us back to our good ol' Gubermitor Perhaps, you have a guber nator in your house ... some body who does and says things that are no doubt, dis gusting even to Dr. Phil. .which might make most peo m < m lJ < -f c: m C/) 0 ple think, "He (she) really be lieves he or she is on this plane t all by himself or her self!"

Letter -ro The E:ditar Thev Hate What Thev love c a: u. One of the saddest things I continue to witness on a weekly basis is the sight of a steadily increasing number of young Black males com ing into the prison system Instead of walking onto col lege campuses, these 18, 19, 20 and 21-year-olds seem more inclined to choose paths that only allow enrollment into schools of hard knocks. And it doesn't seem to matter what examples are placed before them or how many laws come into effect that make it easier for courts to incarcerate them for longer terms, they all appear to be determined to travel C this road regardless of the consequences. I imagine it's a result of the, "it can't hapC pen to me," mentality thfl.t m permeates through their ::J minds even though the 2 million plus individuals ffi already imprisoned have > strongly proven that it can. For that reason I've decidw ed that maybe it's time to let this well-beaten horse final:::i ly rest...:in-peace. If living a continuous life of crime and D.. punishment gives them the motivation to wake up every lu day, then they're more than welcome to have the bunk ffi I've been pressing the past nine years. But before I retire from my position as a caution sign" to the masses; I do have one more piece of advice for those who willingly choose committing crimes as an official occupation .... Embrace the hate. Everything you're doiQg will eventually lead you to where I sit today. And in order for you to live com fortably on this side of the wall without being affected by the environment, you have to learn how to despise everything you left behind. That means enveloping yourself within so much hatred, that anything outside of your immediate con fines is of little concern. In here, hate becomes your companion, nourishment and best friend. It is what sustains you during the day and what allows you to sleep at night. Mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, wives children, sex, sunsets, sunrises, good food, freedom, beaches, parks, parties, should become objects of your abhorrence. But loathing them shouldn't be that much of a stretch . After all, the fact that you chose to pursue a lifestyle that you knew could separate you from what yo'Q cherished the most means that you probably weren' t that fond of those things in the first place. Conversely, the other part of the paradox requires that you begin a love affair with your new environment. keeping a mirror wax shine on your cell floor in an effort to earn a pat on the head from the warden will become your life's mission. Claiming institutional televisions as your own will become second habit. And even though you're being held in a cage against your will, you'll still think enough of the place to get a job that allows you to main tain its upkeep. Without you realizing it, the inside will have replaced the outside as the true object of your affection. And even after your release, you'll find yourself longing to return, just so you can once again feel the warmth of the surroundings you grew to love. Think it sounds crazy? I do, too. But, what other rea son could be used to explain why people, who know what to expect down this road, work so hard to get here while even more can't wait to come back?

On Ice is by the Florida Sentinel Bulletin Publishing Company. Because Thev Can In one of those classic "what were they thinking?" Tallahassee moments, Republican Governor Rick Scott and his fellow Republican Cabinet members earlier this month abruptly decided to reverse the ability of non-violent exfelons to automatically regain their civil rights, stomping their boots and high heels on exfelons one last time. For reasons still murky, the governor, Attorney General Pam Bondi, Agricultural Commissioner Adam Putnam, Chief Financial Officer Jeff Atwater and their supporter-in-chief Harrell Reid, president of the Florida Sheriffs Association proclaimed that making ex-felons wait an additional five years after completing their sentences and paying restitution would determine if they had indeed become lawabiding citizens, and therefore allowed to attempt to regain such rights as voting and gainful employment. Rational observers might assume this sudden add-on punishment was due to some unforeseen glitch in the process: were Florida residents incarcerated as felons for such crimes as, interfering with a commercial radio transmission or writing a bad check to the state Department of Revenue too frequently returning to a life of crime after getting their rights automatically restored? Or was there something more insidious at work, a stealth agenda stacking the deck one year out from a presidential election seen as a prize target -in a state solidly in ultra conservative Republican control? Make no mistake. The drive to offer automatic restoration of rights to certain offenders came with strict restrictions. I know, because I participated in the efforts to reinstate them. The eligible felony offenses were limited to non-violent crimes. People convicted of murder, kidnapping, or sexual assault were excluded from the automatic restoration process. In 2007, then-Governor Charlie Crist finally brought Florida into line with more than 20 other states that had eased the restoration process. The quietly hatched and sudden reversal pushed us back to the 2oth century 'joining Kentucky and Virginia in requiring waiting periods before beginning the petition process. The rule change in 2007 gave the ability to register and vote to more than 100,000 exfelons in a red state that helped sweep Barack Obama into office one year later. According to some reports, those who aided that victory were the new voters with restored rights, many of them Democraticallyleaning African Americans. The Republicans are not about to risk that again. Asked about his pick of 5 years as a waiting period before non-violent ex-offenders can even apply to have their rights restored, Governor Scott answered: iSeemed reasonable." In the disconnect between Tallahassee ivory towers and middle America, Florida style, ireasonablei is rarely a motive in deciding the fate of those the governor pays deference to and those helplessly stuck under his thumb. If the Republicans so fear a second Obama presidency that they would deny the voting rights of those who have atoned, it's not bec.ause of anything "reasonable." Sadly, itis because they Senator Arthenia Joyner (D.:.Tampa) is currently the Senate Democratic Leader Pro r Tem. of Our _uT.n_rrur' Speaktngfor (813) 248-1921

CREWS Sentinel StaffWriter ...J ...J ::J III Eric Darius is proud to be ...J a member of Howard W. Blake's graduating class i= since the school reopened in 1997. While at the school, C/'J Darius was active in the C school's jazz ensemble, and a: that experience opened the 0 door for him to embark on a very successful career On Tuesday, Darius returned to his alma mater to not just give them a free con cert, but to empower the stu dents to concentrate on their education, and spread the word for the need of more performing arts courses in all schools. This is and will always be home for me said Darius. I am honored to be able to come back and share my experiences with the students and get a chance to talk to them and help them in any way I can. Darius told the students that it is important for them to stay focused and not allow outside distractions to lead them away from their goals. I'd love to see more music education in public schools, out even more I'd like to see students take advantage of what our systems nna Walk Ins 8c Appolntm.ents Welcome Get Caught Up With The Drama! have to offer and let it fulfill all of their dreams. While at the school Tuesday, Darius, who has become a renowned saxo phone jazz artist, performed a solo act, and also played along with the school's jazz ensemble During rehearsals, he also spoke to them and encouraged them to keep working hard and practice, practice, practice! I told them to study hard and put as much time into -their music as they could. I was excited when I heard them play, and recalled the time. when I was sitting where they are sitting right now." Darius is on a worldwide tour, having just left the Middle East to return to the states for dates in Chicago Phoenix, and Sarasota. He also said it is his mission to visit schools on every stop of his tour . "I want to talk to students in middle and high schools in every city along my tour route.

Features ..J a: a. < c a: u.. Communities Shocked OverVVetZoninglssue BY LEON B. CREWS Sentinel StaffWriter Carver City /Lincoln Gar dens Neighborhood Associa tion Board Member Rufus Lewis, said enough is enough. Mr. Lewis is upset that the Tampa City Council in a 43 vote Tuesday, approved the process of obtaining wet zon ing to a matter of city admin istration instead of the Tampa City Council holding public hearings. Mr. Lewis is a retired po lice sergeant, and a 46-year resident of Carver City /Lin coin Gardens. "We are going on record in opposition of these proposed > changes and will share it with the Tampa Times Editorial it Staff that has already identiu.. fied the new City Council as being highly qualified with a c( greater awareness of the needs within our city. C "We want this Council to f3 recognize that they can and ::: will be held accountable for violating the law in approving a: requests based on personal issues and circumstances." W After failing to get the Q Council to not allow Joe Redw ::1: ner's request for a special wet zoning of his brew_ery near m Lincoln Gardens, Lewis said they are tired of their concerns z continuing to fall on deaf ears. i= "A good point was the rew ...J ...J ::: m ...J w z i= z w UJ COUNCIL CHAIRMAN THOMAS SCOTI cent final approval given to the Specialty Mall. It is evident that we can't depend on or get support from our own Council Representative Charlie Miranda, when we need him." Lewis said they hope the new Council will be more sup portive and fairer in their busi ness dealings and responsibilities. Council Chair, Thomas Scott, explained that the idea behind the process was to streamline government so there won't need to be a hear ing on all requests. "Certain criteria has to be met in order to get a permit through city administration. If the criteria isn't met they will have to come before the Coun cil and a hearing will be held. Businesses and small busi nesses won't have to wait for the permit. This is intended to RUFUS LEWIS expedite the process. "The public hearings will still be a part of the process, but not as many. In the county, a Hearing Master hears the case and decides if the criteria has been met. We're attempt ing to put a similar process in place." Chair Scott said he wants to make sure it's understood that neighborhoods, schools, and churches will not be at risk with the passing of this ordi nance. "Under our current budget constraints, we had to stream line the process. But, that doesn't mean there will be an invasion on communities with alcohol-selling businesses on every comer." Voting no on the ordinance were Council members, Mary Mulhern, Yvonne Capin, and Charlie Mirand. a. < c a: 0 ...J u..

Remember, Christ HelpsYoul There are many people alive today who suffer. Suffering is not something that only those who are unsaved must deal with, but it is also a part of life that the believer must endure as well. In this letter to Timothy, as recorded in this week's lesson 2 Timothy 2:8-19, Paul encourages Timothy to remember Christ as he per forms ministry. Remember according to my gospel (vs. 8). Paul connects the humanness of Christ to the Power of God, being able to raise someone from the dead. In His humanness Christ was a King of the line of David. Unlike any other, Jesus was resurrected This is what Paul believed, taught, preached, and lived. Christ has been soothing to 0 Paul during his time of 0: incarceration.

The enemy will try to inflict pain and suffering upon you. Some of what you go through may be because you believe and live that Jesus Christ is the resurrected King. Paul acknowledges that he was put in bonds for it. Being in bondage is not a comfortable place. The blessed assurance for the believers who find them selves in bondage because of the gospel is knowing that no matter what their bond, the word of God is not bound. The world may be able to lock you up, but they can't do anything to the word of God. The word of God comes and goes as it pleases. It does not have visitation restraints. As you live, know that the word of God is free. Paul then states, I endure for the elect's sake that they may receive the same salva tion (vs. 10). Paul reminds the church that if they are going to make it, they must remember the power of God. It is necessary for the church to endure the hard trials of life because their endurance helps others to St Mark Missionary Baptist Church 7221 S Sherrill Street Port Tampa, Florida 33616 (813) 839-5263 "Building On A Firm Foundation" Sunday School -9:30A.M.

What must the church remember? If we be dead with Him, we shall also live with Him; if we suffer, we shall reign; if we deny Him, He will deny us, even if we don't believe, He will remain faithful (vv. 11b -13a). No matter what you go through God is going to be faithful. God is always going to do what He says. No matter what you suffer for His sake, He has the power to turn it around. He turns the table on them. Paul tells Timothy to instruct them to stop argu ing and fussing about stuff that profits nothing, the only person who gets hurt is the person listening to it all (vs. 14). These are the people in the church! Shout on Sunday, but shut down a board meeting on Monday. They make a ichurch conference} shut down on Sunday after church. Paul lets them know that when church folk argue about things that do not benefit the Kingdom of God, the only people who are hurt are those who are not saved NEW MT. ZION M. B. CHURCH, INC. 2511 E.

He says, study to show thyself approved unto God ... rightly dividing the word of truth. If the church was filled with more who studied (not just reading) the word of God, most of these frivolous arguments wouldn't take place. When the church studies the word, there wouldn't be a need to argue over the money from the chicken sale, because the church wouldn't sell chick en. A church that has studied would not have to have a business meeting about paying bills, but they would meet about how many fami lies they serve, how many children they can help, and how many widows they can minister to. Paul says that if the church studied, they could speak the word of God and put an end to a lot of the ungodly exchange of words. In the end, it is all about souls being saved and God being glorified.

That childhood had a great influence on Jet Set, and he knew then he wanted to be an en tertainer. After turning 18, Jet Set turned his sights on Hollywood, California, and began the pur suit of his career as an entertainer and actor. "I consider myself living proof that hard work does pay off, and you must willing to make sacrifices along the way and not ever give up," said Jet Set.

Ongoing stress can wear you down and make you sick, both inside and out. Reduce The Effef!s Don't neglect your skin. Get regular exercise . Take time for yourself to do something you enjoy. Practice stress management techniques, such as breathing exercises, yoga, meditation, or visual imagery. Stay well-hydrated. Get regular sleep -seven to eight hours each night. Learn to say no. Don't feel pressured to do an activity if you don't have to. Talk to someone. If you have something that is weigh ing on you or you feel over whelmed by life's demands, seek support from a friend or a professional therapist. CANCER. African Americans have the highest death rate and shortest survival of any racial and ethnic group in the U. S. for most cancers. The causes of these inequalities are com plex and are thought to re flect social and economic disparities more than bio logic differences associated with race. Here are ways you can re duce your risk of cancer, now: 1. Don't Smoke. Yes, this seems obvious. Smoking has been linked to various types of cancer including cancer of the lung, bladder, cervix and kidney -and chewing tobacco has been linked to cancer of the oral cavity and pancreas." The same holds true for secondhand smoke. So for your own health as well as others' around you: Don't smoke. 2. Consume Broccoli, Berries and Orange Juice. Broccoli contains high levels of indole-3 carbinol, which can slow down the rapid cell growth that fuels tumors. Strawber ries and blackberries contain ellagic acid, which is also considered a powerful cancer AND ONLY CANCER Inside Moffitt Cancer isn't one of the priorities at Moffitt it's our only priority. This clarity of mission not only sets , ; b ur 4,100member cancer team apart from other hospitais, to breakthroughs fighter. And ora nge juice is high in folate, another key nutrient for combating car cinogens. 3 Staying fit and keeping a low body mass index is key to good health. Women who rou tinely perform moderateto vigorous-intensity exercise for 2.5 hours or more weekly have a significantly reduced risk of endometrial cancer. 4 Get Checkups. One of the best ways to fight cancer is to find it early. Regular checkups and self exams are the quickest ways to detect a problem. Doctors can per form tests to detect skin, colon, prostate, cervix and breast cancers. The key is to get into the doctor's office for an appointment!

Don't Cut Head Start! After being urged by President Obama to invest in our. na tion's students, you would think our federal lawmakers would do anything they could to preserve a program that sets the founda tion for a lifetime of achieve ment, right? Wrong. Once again, Republicans are moving to cut a program that helps average Americans and, in this case, specifically the poor. The Head Start Program is yet another social program the Re publican Party has targeted for major cuts. Head Start provides educational and health services to low-income children and their families. Head Start has been one of the most studied early ed ucation programs since it began more than 40 years ago. The pro gram has proven itself to be one of the United State's most suc cessful social experiments and an efficient use of taxpayer dol lars. Research shows students who complete Head Start do bet ter both socially and academi cally and are less likely to drop out of high school. Yet, Republicans want to cut the program by more than 22percent. They say Head Start isn't as effective as supporters claim To be fair, some studies show that achievement levels of some Head Start attendees start to drop .off after first grade However, this could speak to the quality of the school they enroll in after the program Addition ally, the program's opponents say too much money is spent maintaining the program and not enough on enrolling new stu dents It's not clear if the Republican Party is against poor people, working mothers, low-income children or all three. All of the cuts it's leaders have moved to make have been to programs the support and empower the poor. If they are successful in taking away the building blocks that many have used to create a foun dation for future success, Amer ica's middle class will continue to shrink and the number of fam ilies living below the poverty line will increase. If the Republicans were seri ous about balancing the budget they'd take a look at programs with inflated and misappropri ated budgets, starting with the military. Sure it's critical that the U.S. has a strong military in place but studies have shown that program is rife with wasteful spending. It's not the only area where money is either being wasted or being misused A good, honest budget scrub will show the Republicans and De. mocrats -just which programs can handle significant cuts. You believe in the power of Head Start and can testify to how it helped a child-past or present -in your life, call your elected officials Let them know that they absolutely cannot cut Head Start. Our children's and our nation's-success depends on it. 1\) 0 Don't Just Get Prequalified, Get Approved! ..... .....
