Fearures N Changed From A lite 01 Drugs And Crime: He Is Nominated For Gospel Award BY LEON B. CREWS Sentinel StaffWriter Reggie Tolbert could have very well made headlines as a vicious criminal. His past certainly made it appear his life was going in that direction But, something happened to Tolbert that made him take a step back and look at what was ahead for him. "I got tired of not having anything and always getting into trouble. I realized I'd never have anything or nothing to look forward to if I kept that up REGGIE TOLBERT "That's when God came into my life. Not only did C God turn me around, he If brought a beautiful woman c into my life, my wife, Z Patricia. I'm blessed to c( have them both."

CREWS Sentinel StaffWriter Like many young men who graduated from high school during the 1960s or early 1970s, Teddy Ricks, Jr. served in Vietnam He returned home 100% disabled from the conflict, and managed to build a career for himself and start a family. Ricks said he thought surviving Vietnam was great until a couple of months ago. Ricks and his wife had gone out to dinner, and brought some of the food home. At home, he ate the remainder of the food, then went to bed. "The next morning, I woke up sick and couldn't keep anything down. My wife decided to take me to the emergency room and it was determined I had food poi soning." Ricks said they also ran a CAT Scan on him, and gave him some frightening news. "The doctors told me they found a huge mass on one of my kidneys I was scheduled for surgery, and after 4-1/2 hours, I was told the surgery was successful. I also spent 8 days in intensive care. "If I hadn't gone to the hos pital for the food poisoning ; the cancer on my kidney would have spread. Doctors told me I wouldn't have had any symptoms that warned me there was a problem until it was too late. "In hindsight, I owe the restaurant a debt of gratitude. If it weren't for the food poisoning, the cancer would n't have been discovered. It's TEDDY RICKS, JR. amazing how things turn out sometimes." Ricks said he' s at home recuperating and on strong medication for pain. "I don't take it all the time, because of the side effects But, I'm being well cared for, thanks to my family. "I was already a disabled veteran and now this. My kidney condition may have been contributed to what I was exposed to in Vietnam. I've also been diagnosed with sleep apnea, so now I'll get more benefits. Ricks said he considers the food poisoning a blessing in disguise. "I was able to walk out of the Veteran s Hospital on my own and I'm happy to be here. I'm getting stronger each day. "That was a very scary moment in my life. I've survived Vietnam and kidney cancer. I feel God has truly put his hand on me and I'm blessed I advise all African American men to take care of themselves, visit their doctor, and get their colon checked. For Vietnam veterans, make sure you get checked out reg ularly." FBI oners Free Child ID APPlication According to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) records, a child is reported missing every 40 seconds in America and many of them never return home. The FBI is offering a free new tool that can help with information pertaining to missing children. The recently launched Child ID application is the first mobile application, created by the FBI, to provide electronically store photos and vital information about your children. The application allows p a r e nts to imm edia t e l y s how th e pictures and provid e physica l ide ntifi e rs, s uch as h e ight a nd wei g ht, t o sec urit y or poli ce officer s in th e event a child i s missing.

HOLTON Sentinel City Editor Mrs. Georgette Williams w a s out of tow n when she learned through a tel e phone call that Mrs. April Daniels Sanders was being transported to the hospita l from her job at DAACO. Within an hour of receiving the call she learned that Ms. Sanders had died. Mrs. Williams said Mrs. Daniels Sanders has been married to her son, Terrol Sanders, for nearly 3 years. I have driven a bus for Greyhound for the past 15 years and I was on my route in Tallahassee when 'her supervisor called me." "I contacted my grandson and he was with her son, Travis George and they went to the hospital. The next thing I knew they called me back around 1 p.m., and said she had died. "We talked everyday and she was like one of my own daughters. To my knowledge, she had aches and pains like everyone else, but nothing terminal. She had asthma and high blood pressure, but she wasn't having any major problems that I knew about. Mrs. Williams said that after her daughter-in-law passed, she contacted the Lake Butler Prison where her son is incarcerated and he gav e her power of attorney and guardianship to handle funeral arrangements However, she said the insur ance company has not paid the claim because the Hillsborough County Medical Examiner has not determined a cause of death "I thought I had not under stood the coroner because I was grief-stricken, so I called him back. I was told that it MRS. APRIL DANIELS SANDERS 12/19/1965 --08/04/2011 would be 8 to 12 weeks before a cause of dea:th would be known." Because of this unexpected turn of events, Mrs. Williams said the family needs help with funeral expenses. She further stated that Mrs. Daniels Sanders was a native of Queens, New York and she met her son, Terrol, when she was 15. She stated that the two dated and Mrs. Williams and her family moved to Tampa in 1983 and her son and Ms. Daniels Sanders went their separate ways. Mrs. Williams said Mrs. Daniels Sanders later met and married the father of her three children. She said the two reconnected after several year s and began to communi c a te Mrs. Williams s aid Mrs. Daniels Sanders and her son would have celebrated their 3rd anniversary on August 17th. "It was like their relationship picked right up from where it left off when they were teenagers, and they talked every day.

I believe, if you read the transcripts from the meeting you will find that what I actually said included this clarification after Commissioner Miller's misunderstanding of my comments: ... "When the federal government came in here andfunded the weed and seed initiative and the university went after federal grants, the conclusion of all of those studies came back. And it was very clear that the bulk of the exodus out of the city went north to the university area because there was an over so% vacancy rate in that community, and those properties were filled very quickly with residentsfrom the inner city. We Specialize In: And no, I wasn't indicating that they were crime-ridden, what I said is that crime follows poverty, and when you have a high concentration of poverty, it will attract a high concentration of crime that preys on it because crime likes to prey on the most unfortunate because they're the least capable to defend them-. selves and do something about it and that is grossly unfortunate. But, as much as the city would not like to own up to it and many of those who weren't there and a part of it would like to think it didn't happen, it did and it was very real and it was documented, and as a result, you know, a lot of people stiffered because those services and that irifrastructure to care for them took years to rebuild and put in place."

Ms. Styles said her son, Keith George, III, was arrested for violation of proba tion, but she wants to know why he was allegedly beaten, kicked, and tasered several times during the arrest. Ms. Styles said George and two friends had left a club around 1:30 a.m., when the vehicle they were riding in was stopped by police at the inter section ofN. 15th Street and E. 26th Avenue. "He did try to run because he knew he was wanted for vi olating his probation. But when he called me, he could hardly talk. He said they kicked him and punched him in his face several times. "His friends said the police just kept tasering him and laughing. They (police) kept telling him to "say you're sorry" as they repeatedly tasered him for about 10 min utes. They also told him, 'you got you're a** whipped and now you're going to jail.'" Ms. Styles said the police never said why they stopped the car, but eventually let her son's two friends leave with out being arrested. Ms. Styles said police had gone to her mother's home to arrest her son the weekend be fore the ericom:iter."

I Words Speak For Themselves I H illsborough County Commissioner Victor Crist has taken exception to a recent editorial pertaining to remarks he made last week during a County Commission Board meeting. The comments left a bad taste in the mouths of those who heard them. Commissioner Crist is taking credit for helping the [(evicted) see Letter to the Editor] families relocate during the HOPE VI Project in the 1990s. Let us not forget, HUD has rigid guidelines in which housing authorities must adhere to when relocating residents. Apparently, none of the people Commissioner Crist ''worked diligently to help find adequate housing and needed services" were relocated through HOPE VI. Perhaps, they were just 63 families in need of help and he responded as any elected official should, to help his constituents. The area in question that rests in Commissioner Crist's District is in North Tampa. But most people who have lived in Tampa for more than 15 minutes know the area across E. Fowler Avenue, between N. Nebraska Avenue and N. 56th Street, by another name--Suitcase City. The area didn't get its name because there are an abundance of luggage shops. It is aptly named "Suitcase City" because of itS high concentration of apartments, its above average student population, and its high transient population. Of course, the area is poverty-stricken, but the people relocating from the housing complexes in the inner city didn't make it that way, they found it that way. We have found that seldom do words, spoken clearly, are in need of explanation. They usually speak for themselves. The only thing that speaks louder, is the action of the I>erson who said them. Walking A Mile In The President's Shoes The old saying, "Walk a mile in my shoes," comes to mind when analyzing President Barack Obama's ordeal in grappling with Republican Congressional representatives during these past two years. You be the judge. What if it was you who had to bend over backwards to get practically any legislation that benefits the poor, middle class, minorities, disabled, sick, children, elderly, unemployed, or even a good good-morning passed during the previous two Congressional sessions? What would you say to the one sleeping next to you when you woke up in the morning? From saving our environment, to offering bold stimulus plans, to ending a seemingly endless war in Iraq, as well as creating a health care plan and to regulating big business and financial institutions, if President Obama had been Superman, his cape would seldom have touched the ground. America's first Black president (yes, we said it) has been made to jump through more hoops and make more compromises than a tiger in a circus. And to his credit, he has never defaulted on any of his challenges. So, what is the problem that even certain Black Americans have with President Barack Obama? Is he Black enough? Is he too white? Are his words too proper? Has his famous jump shot gotten rusty? We have observed a continuous showing of disrespect A WI-n WI-D Sl-tuati_O_ n posedtowork.Peoplewilldis-1\) agree. Voices are supposed to N 0 F p I be heard opposing sides ...... or I lams 00 should listen to each other and ...... F or more than three years the residents in and around Northview Hills have not been able to swim in Williams Park Swimming Pool. Age, wear and tear and shifting earth had rendered the pool unusable. It was closed because it did not meet anti-drowning stan dards. For three years the resi dents have been trying to get the City of Tampa-o-wned swimming pool ; brought up to code. Nobody knew how much it would cost to fix the pool, but it was estimated to be in excess of $1 million. The situ ation boiled and bubbled to a possible explosion before cool heads and cooperation re. solved the matter. Mayor Bob Buckhorn, newly elected to office and struggling to balance his budget, would not commit to fixing the pool. Rumors have it I once asked my mother, in her later years, what she thought I'd grow up to be. With her signature lopsided grin, she glanced at me and said, "I thought you'd grow up to be president of the United States." I grinned and finished eating my spinach. That was then. This is now. Reverend Jesse Jackson wept at the inauguration of first Black president Barack Obama. No doubt, Jackson wept for many rea sons, some noble, others envi ous. I wonder if he's weeping now. Indeed, when Barack Obama and his beautiful First Lady, strode hand-i'i-I-h and down Penn sy lvania Avenue, on that cold, blustery January day, I saw my wife and me in stead, grinning uncontrollably at the screams and well-wishes of thousands of Americans who had come to welcome us to our new home. When the Obamas brought their children home to the White House, giving each little girl her own personal room, I saw instead my own children romping and stomp ing in what once had been Abraham Lincoln's bed room and cavorting down that the city had spent in ex cess of $2 million fixing two pools in South Tampa. This angered residents of North View Hills and a number of community activists. Newly elected City Councilman Frank Reddick, heard : the voices of the Black com munity and demanded that the pool be fixed. Councilman Reddick, in a bold move, threatened to vote against the entire city budget if money wasn't allocated to re pair Williams Pool. Led by Councilman Reddick, who was being a voice and a fighter for his con stituents, community activists began to organize a plan and call other city councilpersons about getting Williams Pool renovated. To the credit of Mayor Buckhorn, he heard the thundering footsteps of the Black community heading to City Hall for a showdown. halls, which echoed the ideas, dreams and demons of s ome of the greatest men in the hi s tory of the world. After reading the papers recently, I'm not daydreaming anymore. Yes, a president's life is pageantry. Parades and ban quets fill his schedule, no doubt. People, famous in their own right, in line to pump the flesh and search the eyes of America's Commander-in-Chief, even moreso, ifhe' s Black. But what happens on other days? What occurs inside a president's eyes when the or chestras cease and when the color of widows and widowers i s the only sight seen for miles? Those are the days I doubt I would want to be pre s ident. How abou t y ou? I'm talking about what happened the other day when a helicopter crammed with 30 American servicemen and women and Afghanistani ser vicemen, among them 25 Navy Seals, was shot down over the mountains of Afghanistan, and everyone was killed. is the word most used. We are told the news struck President Barack Obama like a hamsolutions should be sought. Again the matter has been re solved. In the end, Frank Reddick was a states man, Bob Buckhorn was mayor-like and the commu nity rose to the occasion. I hope that this is an omen for how cont:roversy will be re solved during the Buckhorn two-terms as Mayor of the City of Tampa. I hope that this is an indi cation of how Councilman Frank Reddick will stand up and fight for his constituents during his two terms on City Council. You. know Blacks have not had a whole lot of standing up for lately. Finally, x hope .the Williams Pool incident is the f! community saying, we intend 0 to stay involved in whathap-pens to and in our community over the next eight years. Good CJ) job by those who dared to get involved. ::::! mer-blow. It was not the first time. But no one was counting. We are also told that when the President received the sobering news, a slump could z m r-aJ c rr m ::::! z be seen to form in his usually athletic straight back and "C broad shoulders. As he ffi boarded a helicopter to take a rplane to Dover Air Force base Cii where the military brings its ffi dead to be processed, then C sent home, sources say the m President said little. Instead of coffee, he drank ::D water And when he left Air -< Force One to board the trans-port planes, which held there-m mains of military dead still fresh from their demise, his eyes brimmed with tears as he saluted soldiers who could not return his kindne ss. That news C and those acts were when I re-., alized that even though I ap-:!! predated my mother's loving words about my possible fu-..... ture there was no way in.the world I could have stqod up under the relentless pressure of being the President of the United States. Even now, parents proud of their children s future, be heard to coax their _loved one s by saying, One day, you, too, could be President of the United States." No doubt, in innocent gratitude, their chil dren smile. But considering the pain, which President Obama ob viously endured as he saluted America's most re cent hon ored dead, I would cautiously say to both parents and prog eny, "Be careful what you wish for. for the high office President Obama holds. Call it racism, if you please. Nevertheless, like the great Jackie Robinson or like the timeless Frederick Douglass, President Obama con-tinues to "take a licking and keep on ticking."

What I mean is that I put a lot of effort into not being one of those closed minded individuals who can't adapt to an ever-changing en vironment. But, I have to admit, it's not easy. It becomes especially diffi cult when I recognize the bla tant attempts of others who use the open-mindedness of individuals like myself as an opportunity to test the bound aries of tolerance. Case in point. Two weeks ago when I opened a national newspaper and ran across a story about same-sex mar riages being legalized in New York, two pictures caught my attention. The first one was of two men in tuxedos, with one straightening the others' tie. It was a tame enough photo graph. Judging by the title of the article, I assumed that the men were the bride and groom or groom and groom, I sup pose, preparing for the cere mony. The second photo though, was a little more risque. In that one, the men were cap tured in a tight embrace and engaging in a French kiss that appeared to be as passionate as any, you would see in an af ternoon soap opera. Looking at the page, I found myself having one of those "W.T.F?" moments as I thought, "did I really need to see an image of homoeroti cism today?" I mean, even though I'm not homophobic and under stand the financial significance of gays and lesbians wanting to bind legally with their life partners, I'm not quite ready to see public displays of homo sexual affection at every turn. Call me ignorant for think ing that I can tolerate their union without accepting the intimacy that comes with it. But just because I have ah idea in my mind of what they do behind closed doors doesn't necessarily mean that I'm cool with seeing it in action. I also know that in order for me to be here, my parents had to have sex. But I wouldn't want to see that either. With all of the photos, I'm sure the photographer submit ted, I wondered why they chose that particular one for print? Was it simply for shock value? Or was it just another deliberate attempt by the members of the GLBT (Gay, Lesbian, Bi-sexual and Trans gender) community to remind the rest of society that they plan on becoming more and more visible in the main stream? If the latter is indeed the case, then it would be just the latest example of the Gay com munity flexing its muscle and expanding its presence. Earlier this year a group out of California tried to make gay history a required part of one California county's school curriculum. A little more than a month ago, the Sci Fi Chan nel premiered a television se ries imported from Great Britain that centers on an openly bi-sexual male lead character. And, just recently in a USA Today newspaper interview, the creative team behind Marvel Comics stated that they were looking forward to one day adding a gay super hero to the Marvel Universe. Add in the number of openly gay characters on other television shows, the repeal of the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell," policy in the military, more states addressing same-sex marriage legislation, the back lash against Tracy Morgan and it becomes clear to see that the power and momentum of the GLBT's is in full swing. It all forces me to realize that when it comes to my self perceived forward way of thinking, I still have a long way to go. Because when it all boils down right now, the rest of us have one of two choices. Get used to the new world they seem to be creating or starve in the one that's slowly being left behind.

CREWS Sentinel StaffWriter Pastor James Duverlus has made several trips to his native Haiti, and each time he returns to the United States in despair. Pastor Duverlus said he just returned from Haiti this week, and will be going back on August 20th. "It's sad to report that nothing is going on. We have elected a president, but there is no government in place. The funds that can help the people are being held up b the Clinton Foundation due to the political situation. "People are still suffering, housing is still lacking, and it just seems nothing is being done." Pastor Duverlus's min istry, Compassion Network International Ministries, is trying to get more national attention on what's not happening in Haiti, and says the American newspapers don't give frequent updates on the situation there. "We need journalists in Haiti feeding their newspa pers in this country monthly pictures and reports. "We have more than 40,000 people living under a tent in one area, and in the town I'm from, there's a tent set up with more than 6o,ooo people, one of them my own mother. I'm trying to get a visa to bring her to the FYI PASTOR JAMES DUVERLUS United States, but it has been difficult. It's a curse in Haiti if you don't have family." Pastor Duverlus said his mother has serious back and knee problems, and is not getting the medical care she needs. "I feel for things to change, we must make sure we have a strong plan in place. This has been going on far too long. "The goal of my ministry is to have at least 20 centers up and running in the next 10 years. People need to be trained how to build and do other things so they can re build Haiti themselves. All we have now is groups of people coming in, making money off of the suffering of others, then leaving." CNIM is also engaged in building schoois in Haiti. Most of the schools in Haiti were destroyed in the earth quake last year.

Steve Harvev: Cornel West, Tavis Smilev Are 'Uncle Toms TAVIS SMILEY, STEVE HARVEY AND CORNEL WEST During his syndicated radio show, comedian Steve Harvey called out Cornel West and Tavis Smiley for their poverty bus tour, while defending President Barack Obama: After a listener sent an email about the duo's tour being a hustle, Harvey did C not shy away from offering a: u. c z w c w ::1: CJ), ::::l m ::::) a. z i= w ...J ...J ::::) m his own opinion -accusing West and Smiley for using personal vendettas to damage the Obama name. "I was a huge fan of Cornel West," he said. "[But] Tavis, I seen him coming a mile away. His anger started when he had a town hall meeting, President Obama couldn t come because of the campaign trail and he sent Mrs. Obama. He has held that grudge every since." The writer and comedian also mocked West for not getting extra tickets to Obama's inauguration. Harvey said, "Have you ever been invited to the damn inauguration? Did Bush -send for you? Did Clinton send for you? Did Reagan send for you?" Harvey continued his rant by referring to Smiley and West as being affiliated with UTLO.org (which stands out for "Uncle Tom LookOut"). Harvey mocked the tour by saying, "Make sure you don't get on the poverty bus ... because if you ain't po', when you ride the bus, you become po'." lil wavne sued For $15 Million Over 'Bedrock' LILWAYNE Lil Wayne faces a $15M legal battle over allegations he stole the song "Bedrock." Done Deal Ent. is suing Wayne, Universal Music Group, Cash Money Records and Young Money Ent. for copyright infringement. The song, featured appearances by Drake, Nicki Minaj and Lloyd, peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 and was on the 2010 CD "WeAre Young Money." Wayne also has been sued by several producers over unpaid royalties. Viola Davis leads 1he Help' After 'long Journev 01 Roles' VIOLA DAVIS With two Tony Awards, including one opposite Denzel Washington in Fences last year, and an Oscar nomination for best supporting actress to her credit, Viola Davis is definitely among the best in her craft. Still, as she noted in a press conference-style inter view, "usually characters of color are relegated to a page or two" and, as hard as it is to believe, she said, "usually, I will get three or four scenes in a movie and that's it." So, it's interesting that, even in 2011, her most high profile film role to date is playing the maid, Aibileen Clark in 1961 Mississippi in The Help. The risks did not escape the Julliard-trained actress. "A Black actress playing a maid in 2011 in Hollywood, it's a lot of pres sure,',' she shared. The Help opened Wednes day nationwide.

,.... Who Is Steve Williams;. Jerrv Rice Joins ESPN, Rips Randv Moss BY LEON B. CREWS Sentinel Staff Writer An Analysis Not many golf caddies get the distinction of being millionaires. They spend decades toting golf bags for miles, and although they earn a pretty good living at it, only a select few earn the kind of money Steve Williams has earned. As the caddie for Tiger Woods, Williams earned in e x cess of $9 million over a 13-year sp a n, and the ship was sailing smoothly until Woods hit mudd y wat e rs in his personal life. That on top of having 5 knee oper a tions, has put Woods in a position oftrying to catch up. A month ago, Woods told Williams he would no longer be requiring his services, and Williams is now the caddie for Adam Scott, LL who just won the C Bridgestone Invitational :i Tournament > Talking to CBS Sports on the 18th green, Williams tn said, "I've caddied for 33 years and that's the best win 1-I've ever had, after Scott's i: victory. W Pro golfer Paul Azinger [ij immediately spoke up and c said Williams had broken the unwritten caddy rule by tn talking to the media. ::J It didn' t matter that Woods had made D.. Williams a recognizable figZ i= w ..J ..J ::J m ..J w z i= z w U) < c i:t 0 ..J LL When your new job is to talk to a living, one way to impress your new employers is to rip one of the biggest names in the industry you are paid to talk about. On the day former 49ers' legend Jerry Rice became an ESPN analyst, the Hall of Fame wide receiver called recently retired Randy Moss lazy. Now Rice knows a thing or two about catching balls for a living and he didn t say Moss w a s not tal ented JERRY RICE vs. RANDY MOSS In fact, the former NBC Bay Area analyst told ESPN Ragio that Moss had more talent than him, but he didn't use it to his fu! l potential. STEVE WILLIAMS And TIGER WOODS Charges Dropped In Alleged Kidnapping Over Shaq ure. He couldn't resist throwing Woods under a Greyhound bus the first chance he got. He also reportedly told the media that he had lost respect for Woods when his affairs were made public. With his foot still on the gas pedal, Williams said he plans to write a book when he retires, and there will be an interesting chapter on Woods. First of all, golf doesn't need Williams, so if I were Adam Scott, I'd be very careful what I say around Williams. He's already shown he doesn t keep any thing confidential, and who kno w s what skeletons he will let out of Scott's Closet ifthe need arises. Let's take a step back and look at some of the accomplishments Tiger Woods has charted in his career. Currently, Woods has 71 PGA tour wins, third all time behind Sam Snead (82) and Jack Nicklaus (73). Woods has won 14 majors, second all time behind Nicklaus (18). Woods owns the lowest career scor ing average in PGA tour his tory. He also has made more money than any player in PGA tour history. Woods has cemented his place in golf history and to date, there' s no Black or white golfer on the pro circuit that has risen to that level. So, when the media gives a caddie like Steve Williams all this press it not onl y t a r nishes a man w ho is still the greatest golfer on the planet but makes Williams out to be some kind of savior or hero. Even the fans turned on Woods when the y started chanting "Stevie, Stevie," during play at the Bridgestone Invitational Let's put this all in perspective. Whether you're the greatest or not, Tiger Woods is still a Black man in America. Williams is a caddie and nothing more. That's all he 'll ever be, and if any pro golfers are smart, he won't b e a caddie much longer, a t least on the pro circuit. . Who i s Steve Williams?

The pomp and ceremony of the royal wedding long forgotten, for several days London has been under attack from some of its oWn inhabitants, as vi olent rioting has spread from North to South, East to West. The violence sparked by the killing of Jamaican British man, Mark Duggan by police last week -};las even spread far beyond Lon don as young people have taken to the streets in other major cities like Birmingham and Bristol. Buildings have been burned down, shopping cen ters looted, police and fire men attacked. People are afraid for their lives and their livelihoods; Londoners are now angrily calling for the army to step in and a state of emergency to be declared. The shooting of 29-year old Mark Duggan on Thursday August 2nd was the catalyst for this violence. Duggan was shot and killed in Tottenham, a deprived part of North London with a large Black population by a specialist unit of London's police force called Operation Trident. Operation Trident which was set up in 1998 to specifi cally deal with gun crime re lated to drug activity within A young man is led away from the Currys electrical store in Brixton on August 8, 2011 in London, England. London's Black community is itself controversial among some sections of the Black community. Even though Trident was set up by Black activists to tackle so called black-on-black killings, few of the police of ficers within the unit are Black, and some see Trident as being just another way in which the police can oppress young Black men who are al ready disproportionately tar geted for criminal behavior. Mark Duggan's death seemed to touch a raw nerve, coming just months after an other controversial police-re lated death of another Black man, a British reggae artist known as Smiley Culture. A peaceful protest about Duggan's death turned vio lent From then on, the vio lence has escalated. 79-Year-Oid Arrested For Shooting 12-Year-Oid FT.

From Tonia Turner Students' academic achievement, their nutrition and health are directly related. So, as your child heads back to school, pencils aren't the only things that families can take time to sharpen. While parents work to get routines for the school year started, they can also help the younger members of the household sharpen up these good health habits that will last a lifetime. P. S. These tips can also become a way of life for the entire family. Good Health Habits Germ Free Hands ... Are Never Too Clean One of the most significant -and simple health habits to teach is washing hands. To help children learn the habit, enforce rules for the entire family. Insist on washing hands before every meal, after using the bath room, handling pets, playing outside, and of course, after blowing noses, sneezing and coughing. Food As Fuel ... start Your oav on Right Kids need fuel to power through the day. Making breakfast a part of your da ily routine is also important for weight management. A good morning meal includes foods that have whole grains, fiber and protein with little added sugar to help to improve kids' attention span, con centration and memory. Don't forget the fruit and milk! Sound Sleep ... Important For A Great oav While the specific needs of each child will vary to some degree, school-age children and preteens should get be- tween 10 and 12 hours of sleep each night. Implementing a consistent bedtime, especially on school nights, can help ensure your child's sleep needs are consistently met .

Lose Weight The first step toward easing arthritis pain, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is to lose weight. Being overweight is di rectly linked to osteoarthritis of the knee, which is the most common form of the disease. By losing 22 pounds, a woman can cut her risk of knee osteoarthritis by half. Losing weight can also re duce stress on weight-bear ing joints.

What Is Diabetes; Part4 Fruit Of The Week The eggplant is a very good source of antioxidants and dietary fiber. Because of its low soluble carbohydrate content and high fiber, it is the best food choice for dia betics. There are many different varieties of eggplants, which mainly differ in taste and color. Usually, tlie eggplant has a slight bitter taste and a soft, spongy texture. Eggplants are added in many recipes as a compli mentary ingredient to bal ance out the strong flavors of the other ingredients. Let's take a look at some other important health ben efits of eggplant. Health Benefits Of Eggplant Eggplant is rich in miner als such as copper, potas sium, and manganese. It is also a very good source of B1 (Thiamine), Vit B3 (Niacin) and B6: Eggplants are rich in dietary fibers and folate, as well as phytonutriens and antioxidants that are found in eggplant. It may help in fighting aging and cancer. However, eggplant con tains minimal protein and cannot be taken as a meat substitute Health Benefits Botanically it is a fruit, but most often it is referred to as a vegetable and for those who enjoy it, there is a long list of medical benefits. High in bioflavonoids and the antioxidant monoter pene, the eggplant is effec tive at assisting with a number of health items in cluding : Reducing swelling. Clearing of stagnant blood. Reducing hemorrhages Comforting bleeding hem orrhoids. Treating dysentery. Reducing the risk of stroke and heart disease Best Diet Choice For Diabetics Since eggplants have low soluble carbohydrate content and are high in dietary fiber they are safer and healthy diet choices for diabetic pa. tients.

. t j : .. u.J r By O'Brien Bower, P.A Huge News On Crack Cocaine litigation PARTV Myth 4: Making the crack guideline changes retroactive is beyond the Commissionis powers. FACT: The United States Sentencing Commission has the power to make the crack guideline changes retroactive Making a guideline change retroactive does n,ot require Congress' s approval. In 1987, Congress explicitly gave the Commission full power and unlimited discre-tion to make guideline C amendments and to make ii: them retroactive if they I.L C reduce sentences. Z The Fair Sentencing Act of the silence on retroactiVIty IS ffi ambiguous, not prohibitive. > w The Fair Sentencing Act of 2010's silence on retroactivity has led both its cospon sors and the federal courts to disagree about whether the Fair Sentencing Act of 2010 permits retroactivity. There is disagreement among the law's cosponsors and supporters regarding retroactivity of the guidelines. Senators Patrick Leahy (D-NY), Richard Durbin (D-IL), AI Franken (D-MN), and Christopher Coons (DE) -all Senate Judiciary Committee members who voted in favor of the Fair Sentencing Act of 2010 wrote to the Commission in favor of retroactivity of the 2011 crack guideline changes, because "[t]his result would be entirely con sistent with the primary purposes of .. the Fair Sentencing Act -reducing racial disparities in drug sentencing, increasing trust in the justice system, and focusing limited resources on serious offenders." Federal courts are currently developing a circuit split over whether Congress intended the Fair Sentencing Act of 2010 to apply to people who committed their crack crimes before the Fair Sentencing Act of 201o' s effective date of August 3, 2010. If you or a friend or family member would like further information on the Fair Sentencing Act of 2010, and all recent developments regarding its implementa-. tion, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Choosing A Monuaue Term The term of your mortgage is an important factor to consider when choosing your mortgage program Obviously, the longer the term, the lower the payments. But low payments aren' t on every person' s mind. In fact, some people prefer to make larger payments towards their home loan because it will be paid off more quickly and because they are putting their money into an appreciating asset. Additionally if you plan to rent or lease your property or a unit in your property, you'll make more money the faster you pay down your mortgage. The moral of the story is that larger payments are better as long as you can afford them. This doesn't mean you ca)l't get a 30-year fixed mortgage and just be disciplined enough to make an extra payme. n t or two throughout the year, but it does mean that the more money you put into your home, the better off you'll be .

Others may not recognize your worth because it has been buried, You may not recognize your worth because you've been tarnished, bruised or broken. Regardless of that, remember that a crushed diamond is still a diamond. And you're worth more .than that! Life experiences give you value that cannot be measured. Your worth can never lose its value. It can never diminish or depreciate. Like fine wine your worth gets better in time . To contact.Selpb,enia Nichols-Simmons, Email: thequeenofsuccess@yahoo c QID....
