Features 3J Familv Members want Harassment To Stop BY LEON B. CREWS Sentinel StaffWriter Zelma Washington said of all the things her mother has been accused of, the only thing she's truly guilty of is having a kind heart. For more than 20 years, Ms. Gertrude Murray has lived in her home on 26th Avenue near Nebraska Avenue. Over that period, Ms. Murray has housed family mem bers and homeless people. She's asked for little or noth ing in return, but Ms. Washington said law enforcement officers continue to treat her like a criminal. "My mother is a disabled citizen and has paid her debt to society. It's not right she's being harassed and having guns drawn on her by cops who raid her house. I believe it's all racially motivated." Ms. Washington said the reason she feels race is behind these intrusions is be cause the face of the community has changed over the past two decades. "They have a neighborhood association (VM Ybor Neighborhood Assoc.) in this area, but it consists only of whites who have only recently moved into the area. They want my mother gone be cause of what she does for others and because she at tracts people in need. They don't want those kind of peo ple in the neighborhood." Ms. Washington said they don't have a voice in our community and the newcom ers want to take over and run everyone else away. "It seems no one cares about the good deeds people do." Last Friday, Ms. Washington's daughter, Nakendra Newsome, was arrested by vice squad officers led by Kenny Morman at Ms. Murray's home. Again, Ms. Washington said offi cers came in with guns drawn and started throwing things everywhere. "They (the police) put holes in the walls inside my mother's home looking for drugs and found nothing. Every week, it's either the po lice, Code Enforcement, or some other city agency com ing around here." Tampa Police District III Lieutenant, Brian Gant, said they did get the address of the residence from the neighborhood association. GERTRUDE MURRAY ..... family members upset over her treatment by police officers. "It is possible the resi dents at that house have been targeted by that group. We've done a lot of work in that area dealing with prostitution and utility thefts among other things. "There was a search warrant served at that address and after it was served, we were contacted by a con cerned citizen who felt threat ened that the people at the residence would retaliate against them. They requested extra patrols in the area." Lt. Gant said according to the concerned citizens, residents of the home were ac cusing their neighbors of being snitches. VM Ybor Neighborhood Association President, Kim Headlin, said they had a meeting Wednesday night, and family members of Ms. Murray came. "They addressed the prob lems they are having with po lice and the arrest that was made at the house last Friday. We had some officers at the meeting, and they met with the family privately to discuss their concerns. "At prior meetings, we've talked about prostitution and open-air drug sales, and we have been specific about some areas. We are aware of the history at that house and the fact that there has been a lot of police activity over the years." said they are trying to clean-up their com munity, and have targeted Nebraska and 26th Avenue as a problem area. "We've gone along 26th Avenue and picked up trash and specifically went to Ms. Murray's house and helped her clean up her property. "I want to assure that fam ily that the complaint that led to the arrest there Friday did not come from this group." Familv Maintains Vigil Over Woman Shot Bv Her live-In Bovtriend )> ""D ::D r-0) N 0 .... .... Family members of Cassandra Bass-McCauly have not left her side since she was critically wounded following a domestic dispute last Saturday. Tampa Police reported that Dorsey Sanders, 46, and Ms. Bass-McCauly, 49, were involved in a do mestic dispute at their home in the Boo block of East Cur tis. During the dispute, Sanders allegedly shot Ms. Bass-McCauly. She was hospitalized with life threat ening injuries. It was later determined that Ms. Bass-McCauly was not expected to survive her injuries, and she has been on life support. According to her eldest child, Chance Bass, as of Wednesday, his mother was still critical. "Two days ago, she was breathing on her own, but now she's not and they aren't getting any response from her brain. Doctors want us to CASSANDRA BASSMCCAULY decide now whether to keep her on life support any longer." Bass said he knew Sanders and his mother had been together for more than three decades. was always quiet and if he was having a problem, he'd talk to my mother about it. "My mom starting pop ping up with weird injuries, and when we asked her about it, she said she had fallen or something. It was when she had her arm dislocated we realized something was wrong. She still denied any thing was going on with her and Dorsey." Bass said he never con fronted Sanders about their concerns, but his younger brother, Verrce was tl!e closest to Sanders. Ms. Bass-McCauly is a Tampa native and attended Hillsborough High School. After graduating, she contin ued her studies in the field of nursing.

A. Rogers, Lerone Bennett and others, and the name of Manning Marable fits quite comfortably in this elite family of Black historians. Manning Marable's life-time interest in the life and times of Malcolm X and subsequent publications regarding that interest would cause America, if not the world, to consider Marable as an expert on the man who was once the Honorable Elijah Muhammad's arch-angel. Manning Marable died recently, at the young age of 60. Although he left behind a loving wife and children, what he actually bequeathed the world was a bevy of questions about a man it thought it knew exceedingly well. The book, Malcolm X: A Life of Reinvention, is a little less than 6oo pages if one counts the Table of Contents. It contains information unavailable to a former author Alex Haley, who penned the classic, The Autobiography of Malcolm X, which for the past half century has been considered as the definitive text about the man and his times. However, Marable's text promises to eclipse Haley's book by introducing a Malcolm X whose opinions might revise how he perceived the evolution of the Black American and Pan African Experience. We shall miss the eloquence and excellence of one of the world's foremost scribes and educators. Another oav In Paradise And now, for the latest goofiest gaff of America's newest and most popular program, FLORIDA GOVERNOR-GONE-WILD! Brought to you by "FOLKS WHO DON'T VOTE," this segment features the Governor's to run every one of his State employees through a drug test. BUT WAIT! You haven't heard the latest. Not only would Der Gubernator's gang have to gag, cough and spit, but members would have to reach in their wallet (or rummage in their purses as the case maybe) and pay for the pain and embarrassment themselves! No, you heard us correctly. If accepted by the Tallahassee Legislature (and seemingly, everything is being accepted by the Tallahassee Legislature, these days), State. workers will not only have to drop and bend over, but will have to pay for it, too! ADd would you believe the party's just beginning! 7urns out, Der Gube's Missus owns the kit-and-caboodle of what provides der drug racket (Oops, did we say that?). 'Record says her husband used to own it, but he got out of the drug testing business, leaving his share to his belove'd what's-er-name. Solantic is the name of the company, bytheway. Critics are raving about FLORIDA'S GOVERNORGONE-WILD, calling it more cantankerous than a barrel of naked lobbyists. So, you stay tuned for the next exciting sequel, which will probably be coming your way, TOMORROW! Blacks Need To Free Their Minds B lacks came to America wiili their limbs bound and chained in the bottom of slave ships. Their captors abused them; played head games with them, enslaved them and provided them with misinformation about iliemselves. All of iliis led many Blacks to believe that they were in ferior and that Blacks could not trust each oilier. Today, Civil Rights laws have removed the restraints that bound their limbs, but the invisible mental restraints that bound their minds remain very present and real. So many Blacks still find themselves addicted to the beliefs that they are inferior and that there is no need to struggle Their station in life is locked into what it is. True to what many Blacks believe, they are locked into ilieir current s t a tion in life as long a s they belie v e that, as long as they make no effort to improve their lives and as long as they hold onto their old and outdated slave mentality. Re straints can bound your limbs but you can escape as long as you don' t let your mind become bound and you don't give up. What is the answer for Blacks? Many Blacks have found the answer already. As bold as this may sound, the answer is really simple. Blacks must free ilieir minds of the slave mentality that has held them down for so long. Once this is done, Blacks need to know who they are and the circumstances iliat got them here. They need to know about their slave history. They need to know about the long history of Blacks being able to survive and ilie y need to know about Whv Are Africa And. The Middle East On Fireil And we ask ourselves why our children have be come so violent. The answer is simple. They read the newspa per! Guns, guns, and more pic tures of guns festoon the front page of every newspaper from the New York Times to the Christian Science Monitor. Amidst pictures of jubilant men brandishing AK-47 car bines (for the past seventy years, every revolutionary's symbol of armed conflict), the list of hotspots grows First it was Iraq; then it in cluded Iran; then Afghanistan; then the fever jumped to Yemen, then Egypt,-Pakistan, and the streets of Saudi Arabia where a young Black American who speaks perfect Arabic and looks totally African, was al most beaten to death, less than a week ago. But scholars would readily tell you: the Middle East has been on fire supposedly since Cain killed Abel. However what's happen ing in Africa could make lions cry. Perh a ps, it started with Uganda when a robust Master Sergeant who resembled a dark-skinned James Earl Jones, took over his country, and began shedding blood as if it were soda to be given to children. Idi "Dada" Amin seemed scripted from Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, but Amin was simply one among a murderous many. Somehow, he was deposed, but ilie feeding frenzy of what ever turns men mad and can nibalistic against their brothers and sisters was still hungry and craved more Black blood. So, it attacked Rwanda Savagely, the blood-lust ate Africans as if Black skin was a buffet item and the Smorgasbord was endless Tens of thousands of Rwandan Tutus and Hutsies perished. But stili the monster that eats inno cents was not full. Jt w.:ent on to the Sudan, and there it found dessert so sweet that it remains there now, still de vouring countless villages of peaceful, la-w-abiding Su danese, whose only crime is that iliey are dark-skinned and non-Musiim However next on the list of African nations to be eaten, here recently is the Ivory Coast. Boastipg the names of men no one s ever heard of, ar ticles inform us that French military forces are currently using attack helicopters to tions Blacks have made to )> this country to the world and to improve human lives. 1 Blacks must learn that co they have every reason to 1\l 0 hold their heads high. The y :: need to know that kings queens, presidents, inven tors, educators, warriors corporate big wigs, athletes, entertainers, writers, poets, builders, business owriers, judges, lawyers and leaders among others all can be found in our race, ilie Black Family. We must develop a thirst for knowledge knowing iliat through education we can unlock many doors and break many glass ceilings. We must know and we must believe iliat free minds can't be enslaved. We must know that a person who has know ledge of himself cannot be held doWn. "T1 Once Blacks know who r-0 they are, iliey will know iliat :lJ robbing, killing and causing C bodily or mental ha.rm to each oilier is not who we are, m and is not what we do. We can only reach this utopian level if we free our minds and dare to let iliem run free : z m r-aJ c: r rm ::! z strafe government resistance while friendly rebels brandish ing AK-47's push confidently onto the streets of an Ivory OJ Coast capital that if I men-C tioned its name, you would swear I was kidding. m Indeed, seemingly every-C where we look, the world of !;g people-of-color is eating itself m alive. We go to bed at night and wake up the following -t morning only to be told that C: another African Asian, or m Latin American state has un-C dergone a Blitzkrieg coup d'e-tat! )> Meanwhile, at home in the Z United States, our children are happily, intently and single-:!! mindedly murdering each C oilier. No longer picking o'ut gang our y o ung men have resorted to killin g y o ung women railier than learn i n g how to treat them with love and respect. What iS not said i s that our police forces are becoming increasingly edgy and suspicious of young men with Black skins or brown skiDs. Urban warfare looms on a dark horizon, if we who are wise, are not brave with our wisdom. So, what must we do? fll tell We must realize that our world is our responsibility. We must each become heroes, in our own homes, on our oVirn streets, in our own right, al)d in our own world. And by doing so, we will demonstrate to our so-called enemies that violence is not an antidote for stupidity. For, surely, if we do not speak for ourselves, ilie Q Devil will have out children for breakfast. ):.

(LDF), the NAACP, including its Florida State Conference of Branches, and Advancement Project, addressed a letter to Florida' s Governor and his Cabinet, concerning the rules governing voter registration in Florida for individuals convicted of felony offenses. The letter was addressed to Governor Rick Scott, Attorney General Pam Bondi, CFO Jeff Atwater, Commissioner Adam Putnam, and Secretary Kurt Browning. It stated as follows: "On behalf of the NAACP Legal Defense & 1:i Educational Fund, Inc. C (LDF), the NAACP, fE including its Florida C State Conference of z Branches, and erning voter registration ffi in Florida for individuals > convicted of felony W offenses. fa "Specifically, according to a press release from ::i the Office of the Attorney m General dated March 9, 2011, the Florida Board z of Executive Clemency j::: (of which Governor Scott, Attorney General S Bondi, CFO Atwater, and m Commissioner Putnam are members) amended the "rules on the process to restore Civil Rights for convicted felons,i including the right to vote. "Among other things, those amendments included a new five-year waiting period before individuals who have completed their sentences for certain classes of non-violent felonies may petition for restoration of their civil rights in order to register to vote. See Fl. Rules of Exec. Clemency 9(A) (2011). "As you know, the implementation of all proposed voting changes in certain jurisdictions, including some in Florida, is subject to the requirements of Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act, 42 U.S.C. 6 1973c(a) ("Section 5"), which prohibits certain States and political subdivisions from implementing, "any voting qualification or prerequisite to voting, or standard, practice, or procedure with respect to voting different from that in force or effect," unless the change has been precleared by the United States Department of Justice or the United States District Court for the District of Columbia. "Because five counties in Florida are covered by Section 5 (Collier, Hardee, Hendry, Hillsborough, and Monroe Counties), statewide voting changes in Florida are subject to Section 5's preclearance requirements. "See Lawyer v. Dept. of Justice, 521 U.S. 567, 570 (1997) (Section 5 applies to statewide voting changes in Florida); see WORKERS' COMPENSATION CIVIL SERVICE I UNION GRIEVANCE BANKRUPTCY -Chapter 7 ($500 Plus Costs) 505 East Jackson St. Suite #303 Barrister's Building Tampa, FL 33602 (813) BANKRUPTCY Stop Foreclosure & Creditor's Harassment REAL ESTATE LAW FAMILY LAW (813) 387-7724 also Lopez v. Monterey County, 525 U.S. 266, 283-84 (1999) (statewide voting changes are subject to Section 5 review where a state is partially covered by Section 5). "The new restoration requirements that you seek to implement would change the procedures and qualifications that govern the eligibility to vote, and therefore fall within the purview of Section 5 See 28 C.F.R. 6 51.13(a) (''Any change in qualifications or eligibility for voting''). See also Riley v. Kennedy, 553 u.s. 406, 412 (2008) (Section 5 requires "covered jurisdictions to obtain ... 'preclearance' ... before 'enact[ing] or seek[ing] to administer' any alteration of their practices or procedures affecting voting.") (quoting 42 U.S.C. 1973c(a)); Young v. Fordice, 520 u.s. 273, 284 (1997) {preclearance is necessary for "any change affecting voting, even though it appears to be minor or indirect") (quoting 28 C.F.R. 5i.12). "Accordingly, the State of Florida may not implement these new restoration requirements without first obtaining Section 5 preclearance. The State's chief legal officer is charged with the responsibility of submitting statewide voting changes for preclearance. See 28 C.F.R. 51.23. "We therefore request Attorney General Bondi to submit these proposed restoration requirements in accordance with Section 5 "We respectfully request that you inform us of when you intend to submit these voting changes for Section 5 preclearance by Friday, April 8, 2011. If it is your intention not to seek preclearance, we respectfully request that you inform us of that determination by April 8, 2011 as well." JOHNPAYfON Director, Counsel NAACP Legal Defense & Educational Fund, Inc. BENJAMIN T. JEALOUS, President & CEO NAACP ADORA NWEZE, President, Florida State Conference NAACP Shutdown: 800,000 Federal Workers In The Dark NEW YORK -There are two kinds of federal workers right now: the essential and the non-essential. Most don't know which group they're in. And none of them will be getting a paycheck if the government goes dark. The budget stalemate between Congress and President Obama has raised the specter of a shutdown at the end of Friday. If they don't reach a deal, the government will shift to performing only "essential operations." It's likely that more than 1 million essential employees will be asked to come to work -and not be paid. But workers deemed nonessential won't be allowed to come to work or work from home. They won't even be allowed to turn on their BlackBerries. The official estimate from the White House is that 8oo,ooo workers would be asked to stay home. Shooting leaves Two Men Dead CLEARWATER.: Clearwater Police are investigating a shooting Sunday night that left two men dead. DERRICK HARRIS WILLIAM HAMILTON Police said an argument ended in gunfire in the North Greenwood neighborhood. Derrick Harris, 23, and William Hamilton, 30, were both shot and transported to Morton Plant Hospital where they were pronounced dead.

Our goal is to have 300 members." The church also hopes the tournament helped raise awareness about its ministry and out reach programs in the com munity. The majority of the band members are not members of the church, but residents who live near its Armenia Avenue location.

Local Bridging The Gap Young Man Dies Suddenlv Between Families Plaving Flag Football And Inmates Abe Brow-n Ministries Inc. BY TAMECA JOHNSON Freelance Writer Abe Brown Ministries is providing round trip transportation throughout the month of April to correc tional facilities across the state of Florida. This is a service the Ministry offers regularly on specific week ends each month. However, this month, trips will be made every weekend. The trips are designed to transport residents who have incarcerated loved ones in Florida s prison system. The program was established pri marily to bridge the gap be tween incarcerated parents and the children they ve left behind. "Without this program, many of the families would have absolutely no physical contact with their loved ones, because they can't afford it," says Vanessa Brown-Bennett, Executive Assistant at Abe Brown Ministries. "What this program does is provides families an oppor tunity to visit with their loved ones, thus maintaining the family bond." The program was estab lished by the late Rev. Abraham Brown who founded the Ministry in 1976. He felt it was critical to keep the family support system intact, despite the dy namics of incarceration. "When my dad first started this, there were bus loads of families weekly," says Brown-Bennett. "Amaz-All About You ingly, we never had to turn anyone away." Families making the trips are asked to contribute a small cash donation. The money is used to help offset the cost of gas and vehicle maintenance. For more in formation call (813) 2473285.

HOLTON Sentinel City Editor Oftentimes, when we hear the words "Health Fair" a certain image comes to mind. However, one Hillsborough County School has set about changing that image This marks the Second Annual Health Fair and Family Fun Day that Sligh Middle Magnet School has hosted. This unique health fair is to give the community a glimpse of the school's theme of Medical Studies and Explorations, Ms. Jennifer Canady, Lead Teacher said.

This year, University of South Florida Health, along with business partners, and local health organizations will be on hand. During the event, students will perform such medical screenings as taking blood pressure and heart rates. Additionally, the health. fair will feature the school's band and dancers for entertainment. Heart rate checks will take place during the one-on-one basketball tournament.

One of the responsibilities of parenthood is to instill val ues, morals, and standards into their children: However, when the children reach adulthood they come to crossroads, where their own beliefs contradict what they have been taught their entire lives. Tampa native J. L. Harris is familiar with the struggle of going against the grain. She recently released her first novel that she describes as being "loosely based on my life." Entitled "The Rainbow Shines In The Rain," the novel tells the story of a young woman's journey into homosexuality. In the book, the lead character takes an emotional rollercoaster ride as she faces the battle of her own sexual identity. Ms. Harris said, "This story is about a young girl who has been raised as a Christian finding out that she has lesbian tendencies." Ms. Harris was 18 when she began her own emotional struggle. "It was a very trying process. At first, I was In denial. Then I had to come to terms with that; then figure out how I was going to tell my fam ily." Ms. Harris said, "My grandmother told me how she felt and said you'll have to answer for that: And, we have never had another conversa-tion about it. "Now my mother was a different story. She lost it. She took me to talk to my pastor. My pastor said God has spoken J.L. HARRIS ... Author on this subject. But he told me that he couldn't tell me bow to live my life." Ms. Harris decided that she was going to commit her emotional struggles to paper and share it with the world. The daughter of Mrs. Jacquelyn Maddox and the late Winston Harris, Ms. Harris is the oldest of five children. She is granddaughter of Jack Maddox and Ms. Linda Maddox. She is a member of BibleBased Fellowship of Temple TeiTace and a 2005 graduate of Jefferson High School. Cur rently, a senior in college, du-. ally enrolled at Florida A & M University and the University of South Florida as a Criminal Justice major. Ms. Harris Will host a book signing on Saturday, April 9, at Metro Wellness Center, 1315 E. 7th Avenue, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. BY GWEN HAYES Sentinel Editor The Tampa Bay Muslim Al liance, a coalition of mosques and Muslim organizations, is preparing for its 14th Annual Islamic Festival. The 2011 event will be held on Sunday, April 17th, 11 5 p.m. at Riverfront Park, 1000 N. Boulevard. The Charity Festival is a way that the Islamic community gives back to the indigent, homeless, and others de serving in the community. This year's focus is the homeless. Hakim "the Dream" Aquil talks about the importance of giving back. "Even in hard, economic times, people should still find it in their hearts to give to others for encouragement and hope. The festival also provides free medical tents to do blood pressure checks, blood sugar tests and other tests. Several hundred volunteers will assist with details, including law enforcement officials, fire brigade officials, medics, doctors and HAKIMAQUIL nurses. Invited guests include the mayor and all elected offiGials. "We have to take the attitude that our giving is not measured by how much we give, but by our good intentions. We should never forget the sacrifices of others. It doesn't take a whole lot, because a little can go a long ways," Aquil said. The public is invited to come out and be a part of this event. sundav Mornings :00 A.M. :30 A.M. WIMP Radio /1150AM

What's wrong with Tiger Woods' golf game? That is the question that all of golf is asking and all of golf has no answer to. Tiger thinks it is his swing and he is currently undergoing a swing change. I say there is nothing wrong with Tiger's game or his swing. Tiger's problem is his eyes. Think about this with me. Tiger has always had trouble finding the fairway with his driver. He has always hit his ball into the woodS. He's always been able to knock the ball out of the woods and onto the greens. / Once on the green, Tiger knock down a putt from anywhere on the green. Today, he can't knock down putts at all. He misses a ton of pu;hs inside of five feet. Short putts pass by the hole by 12 inches off line. You know Tiger used to wear contacts. Then he had laser eye surgery. He had to have the surgery redone and he may need to eitherha ve the surgery done again or go back to the contacts. Rays Off To A Bad Start The season has just started for the Tampa Bay Rays and the team got off to a horrible start. They have lost their first four game s The pitching hasn t be e n good and the hitting has been almost nonexistent. The Rays won their Division Championship last year, but lost a lot of key contributing players.

A Miami-Dade County judge set a hearing Wednesday on the request from 20-year-old Eric Rivera Jr. His attorney contends that an upcoming hearing on what evidence will be allowed could jeopardize Rivera's chances for a fair trial. Attorneys for The Miami Herald oppose closing the hearing, arguing there's no evidence media coverage will automatically taint a potential jury pool. Rivera is one of five people accused in the killing of Taylor during a botched rob bery at his Miami-area home. Taylor w a s a n All-Pro safety with the Redskins who starred in college at the University of Miami. A trial in the case is expected later this year. uconn Arrives Home With Third ChampionshiP Trophv STORRS Conn.-Kemba Walker powered Connecti cut to a third national title and in return, the school put the star guard's name and number on the wall of Gampel Pavilion. It was a surprise moment during Tuesday s victory rally before about 7,500 rabid UConn fans who ,came to the arena to celebrate Monday night's 53-41 win over Butler, and chanted "Kemba Walker," and "One more year." The junior playmaker who averaged 23.7 points during the NCAA tournament, cried and pulled his championship hat over his eyes as a drape that covered his banner was pulled away. He became the 14th Connecticut player to join the "Huskies of Honor" wall the first to receive the honor while he was still in school. "It' s like a dream come true," W a lker said.

Prosecutors argued that charge meant that Bonds would be guilty to have knowingly taken any steroid prior to 2003. But the judge disagreed, ruling that the charge alleged Bonds will fully used designer steroids dubbed "the cream" or "the clear" before the 2003. Bonds admitted inadvertently taking designer steroids in 2003, but denied any use before then. The jury will now consider four charges against Bonds. Two accuse him of lying about knowingly taking per-BARRY BONDS formance-enhancing drugs, a third charges him with lying about being injected by any one, but his doctors and the last is a catchall obstruction charge. The owner of the major league mark for home runs in a season and a career has pleaded not guilty to three charges of lying to a grand jury in 2003, when he denied knowingly using steroids and human growth hormone. He's also charged with one count of lying to the grand jury when he told it no one other than his doctor ever injected him with anything and another catchall charge of obstruction.

LeBron Nearing 2,000 Points For Seventh Straight Season LEBRON JAMES MIAMI -LeBron James speaks often of his apprecia tion for NBA history. On Wednesday, he'll likely make some history. James needs only two points to reach 2,000 for the season, which would put him on another list alongside some of the game's greatest players. The NBA's two-time reigning MVP will become. the eighth player to score 2,000 points seven times -and at 26, he will be the youngest member of that elite club. "It means a lot," James said. "It means I've stayed healthy over the years. It also means the teammates and coaching staffs that I've had have given me the leeway to go out there and score. I've just tried to take full tage of it. There's a lot of hard work that goes into it and I just try to go out on the court and be the best player I can every night." Every other player with seven seasons of scoring 2,000 points -Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Wilt Chamberlahi, Alex English, Michael Jordan, Karl Malone, Oscar Robertson and Dominique Wilkins is in the Basketball Hall of Fame. J anies will be the eighth person in that seven-timers club, and Kobe Bryant rieeds only 85 points in the Lakers' final six games to get to 2,000 again and join as well.

She carefully watched all that went on in her household and did not have to bear the consequences of laziness. Her children stood and blessed her. Reward her for all she has done. Let her deeds publicly declare her praise. On Monday, April 4, 2011, God gently whispered a summons to Miss Louise, and she answered. The summons was a call from labor to eternal rest.

There are warning labels on medi cines and even on some foods. These warnings do not serve the purpose of scaring you from engaging or partaking in what is offered, but they are given to foreyou with a "heads-up" of what is to come. Jude which serves as this week's lesson provides the readers with a "heads up." He writes to the church to warn them of peo ple they will encounter, and tactics they will use to cause a division in the church . warn you of what is to C come. That is the view of D: some of the scriptures in the u. c Bible. They are not given He opens this section of his writings asking the peo ple to remember the words that were spoken by the apostles (vs. 17). If the church is going to survive the attacks and the tactics of the enemy to cause a divi sion and separate them from the body of believers, they must remember the z to discourage you or make < you fearful of living life; they are given to provide c en w :::;) t-w > w c w ::I: en :::i m :::;) a.. z w ...J ...J :::;) m ...J w z z w en < c a: 0 ...J u.

Too often times mem bers of the body of Christ are led away because they forget the word of God. Be lievers would be less stressed, less fearful, and less doubtful if they remem bered the words of God. This does not suggest that knowing the word of God will prevent these things from happening but know ing and remembering the word will help and influ ence how you choose to deal with them. Jude warns and in forms them that they will encounter mockers of the faith who follow after the lust of their own flesh (vs. 18). There are some of you will cross paths with those who will make you feel that they are living better and having more fun in life. But you must be warned andremember that it only looks that way and that life is de ceitful. They live this way because they do not have the Spirit of God (vs. 19).

It is like driving; you are not responsible for how some one else drives, all you can do is drive your car and be responsible. Jude turns the attention to the church. He tells them to build up their faith by praying in the Holy Ghost (vs. 20). As a believer, when you are being tried, mocked, and ridiculed, all you can do is keep your faith and keep praying. Building your faith means to keep believing that you are living a life pleasing to God. Know that serving the Lord will pay off in the end. The confidence you have is in knowing that the Holy Ghost will pray for you. AE Paul writes in Romans 8:26, the Spirit prays for us and strength ens us in our weakness.

____________________________________________________________________ __ CIO ...J a: a. <( Derrick Williams Released After 18 Years DERRICK WILLIAMS BOWLING GREEN, Fla. -A Manatee County man who spent the last 18 years in prison for a rape he didn't commit was released from prison. Derrick Williams walked out of the Hardee County Correctional Facility arm-inarm with the team who helped free him. His family cheered as the ex-inm(lte made his way out and into the arms of his son and grandson. Officials said n e w DNA e vi dence was enough to exoner ate him. The court also found Williams due process was violated by the Manatee County Sheriffs Office, who destroyed evidence that could have excluded him as the rapist. Williams said he isn t bitter and he described what happened when he heard the news he' s waited 18 years to hear. "I fell out on the floor in there. I fell on the floor and thanked God for it," he said. The state attorney's office said the right decision was made with the evidence they had. They said retrying Williams would not be in the best interest of the victim who twice picked him out of a lineup.

A county grand jury last ...J month indicted 58-year-old u. Lonnie Franklin Jr. for 10 killings in South Los Angeles. Victims ranged in age from 14 to 36. The Police Department says in a news release Tuesday that detectives are now focusing on eight women known to have had a connection with Franklin. Six of the women are missing persons, one is an unsolved homicide victim and the eighth is an unidentified woman. Four of the women had not previously been connected to the investigation. Police Chief Charlie Beck and detectives plan an afternoon news conference to update the case and ask for j:he public's help. Pres. Barack ObamaFor Re-Election PRES. BARACK OBAMA It's official. Barack Obama is running for president again. Viewed widely as a foregone conclusion, President Obama announced in anticlimactic fashion that he is running for re-election. We've always known that lasting change wouldn't come quickly or easily. It never does," Pres. Obama told his supporters in an email message that came on the anniversary of the assas sination of Martin Luther King Jr. "But as my admin istration and folks across the country fight to protect the progress we've made and make more we also need to begin mobilizing for 2012, long before the time comes for me to begin campaigning in earnest." Already Pres. Obama's re-election website is up and running, and his first fundraiser scheduled for April 14 in Chicago If Pres. Obama wants to top his own impressive record of $750 million from the ous campaign, there's gonna be some changes made.

Graham was walking home from school with his little sister when he says he heard a woman screaming for help. That woman was just one of several senior citizens trapped inside the facility where a raging fire was grow ing. "I told my little sister to go ahead and keep walking, because she gets kind of emo tional sometimes," Graham said "And I called 911." MAHLON GRAHAM The fire department was so proud of Graham that Commissioner Ayers came to his school and surprised him with an official thank you and a proclamation from the department "He's hope for a generation, we're just elated about the job that he did," said Ayers. Confederate Flag Outside Texas Counhouse Comes Down The Confederate flag has been lowered outside an East Texas courthouse where.it flew to commemorate Confederate History Month. Members of a Palestine, Texas, chapter of the Sons of Confederate Veterans lowered the flag Monday night, just as the Palestine City Council was meeting to call for its removal. Last week, Anderson CountY commissioners narrowly voted to fly the flag to honor those who died-in the Civil War. When it was raised Friday in the town 100 miles southeast of Dallas, however, some resi dents turned their backs. Protesters say the flag repn! sents the South's support for slavery. ,
