Opinions on pages of this newspaper by Columnists or Guest Writers, do not reflect the stance of The Aortda SenUnel Bulletin or the Publisher B New Mavor, New Year ob Buckhorn has turned nnany heads since beconning Tampa's nnost recent nnayor during this soon-to-be previous year. People are admitting Buckhorn's popularity rests not so nnuch on what he's done, but on what he hasn't done. He hasn't nnade a fool of himself (as certain new state chief executives have done), and he hasn't taken the City to hell-in-ahand basket (as sonne of those sanne leaders are rumored to be doing). Indeed, what our new nnayor has done is to have taken short steps to undo tall problems. Buckhorn seelllS to be a thinking, plodding nnayor, and for that, we thank him.. But we can't help, but wonder what is on Mayor Buckhorn's New Year's Resolution List. In the conning year, what is it that our new mayor wants nnost to do that he has not yet, done? Perhaps, he'll-resolve to fix Tampa's deplorable pot-holes before they end up swallowing tractor-trailers. That would be good. Or maybe, he'll find something to do with still-vacant Ft. Homer Hesterly Arnnory, a landmark that once acconnnnodated National Guardsmen during the week and welcomed luminaries like Dusty Rhodes and Hulk Hogan on the weekend? 'Who knows? Maybe, Mayor Buckhorn will appoint mayoral assistants responsible for maintaining working relations with the City's growing African American and Latin Hispanic connnnunities and the issues they bear. -Maybe, Bob Buckhorn will get a pet cat, call it "Mascote," and give the City of Tampa something it has riever had: a mascot. Or maybe, he'll just decide to be better friends with Councilman Frank Reddick. Most certainly, when you conne to think of it, the Mayor ofTampa's New Year's Resolution List nnust indeed, stretch a nnile. And we wish him what we wish you: A positive, prayerful and productive New Year! A New Year's Bucket A round this tinne of year, people world-wide nnake resolutions or self-promises. Then certain people have latched on to the conviction that 2012 will bring the End of Days for the human race. So, after you promise to lose weight, read at least one good book a nnonth, keep a note pad in case you conne up with sonne eai71:h-shattering idea, learn to speak Vietnamese, then what else are you going to promise you'll do for the new year? Give up? Here are sonne suggestions. Now is as good a time as any to start doing your part to bring sanity, peace, harmony, and love to your household, your street, your neighborhood, and finally your world, which is full of anger and violence. Call it a "bucket list' if you will. But this is how you should begin. Finally, call or visit a sick neighbor or friend. Add these to your New Year's bucket list. May your bucket list run over. Memories At The End Of Year A nd the song goes, "Has anybody seen . my old friend John? Can you tell me where he's gone? He saved a lot of people .. .but the good, they die young. I just looke d around, and he was gone." That's the problem With a televised, electrified, Internet universe. People get confused regarding the word "immortality." For, indeed, it really does seem we can live forever. But at the. end of a year, many of us didn't realize that, for us, the end of the world was the next stop on the subway. Somebody told me Joe Frazier was laying on a slab, cold as stone. No, not Smokin'Joe!Snnokin'Joe couldn't die. How could he die, who when told by Muhammad Ali that God had preordained him to beat Frazier during their first fight, Frazier responded, "Well, God gonna git his awhupped, tonight?" How could an act of nature die? But he died, this year. And wait a minute. Did I hear you say, Matt l)illon was dead? You mean "Gun Smoke," the man who strode out into the center of a Dodge City street every week for years and out-drew that no-= name rascal who always bit the dust before the French horns went, "Daah-da,-daduh :..daah-dee-daah-duuh ?" You must be talking about James Arness, who played Marshall Matt Dillon in one of the longest-running se ries in. TV history. When did he die? He died yesterday. A memory clogs my mind like a cold breeze in my lungs. For a moment, I tremble and for no reason at all, I come close to tears. Is it loss that makes me weep? Did I know any of the ones who died, this year? No. And Yes: By the magic of our technology, I knew them all. 'Knew Lee Roy Selnnon. . big, ham fisted Lee Roy who could shake your hand and pick you up as if you were a skil_let he was shaking over a stove. 'Knew Tom McEwen . old wily sports writer and tall tale-teller Tom McEwen who could build you up and ., ::D .. -. B -tear you down with the same laugh and a wink. (I once saw 0 him do that to a man who PJ thought himself a big speaker. m When Tom thanked him for speaking, he also told the aum dience that not only did the ::D c.,) man have a BIG voice, but he p had a BIG belly, too!) 'Knew Elizabeth Taylor := .. and couldn't take my eyes off of her when she played Cleopatra, and a thousand Egyptians pu1led her and a golden sphinx down Rome's Appian Way to meet her man, Julius Caesar. Did it mat-ter she was the wrong color? Naah!! 'Also knew Moammar Gadhafi when he wore an Afro and strutted down 125th Street iil Harlem giving the Black Power salute to all the Brothers and Sisters. But times have changed. In one year, they whom we used to know are gone, by the thousands and the millions, never to be seen oni:his earth, again. It makes you wonder: How can one year bring about such change? Yet, nothing has changed. No one is immortal. ., The pain, however, is in the 5 song, "I just looked aioimd, ::D and he was gone." !2 I wait for the New Year. I look into the mirror. And I wonder.

" ,:;, '' ---'--. BY LEON B. CREWS Sentinel StaffWriter Pastor Steve Jackson and his wife, Liz, had a suc cessful ministry for 12 years. Their ministry, "Visions Before Victory Ministry," had not only gained a huge follow ing, but became financia]ly stable. With all of that success, Pastor Jackson said God told him to walk away from it. "When I received God's message, I was confused, be cause we were doing so good. I woke up one day and the building was sold, and people were walking through the sanctuary saying it was their building now." Pastor Jackson said he realized he was preaching to himself, instead of the people, and in the summer of 2009, God spoke to him and told him to cut yards in his neighborhood for free. "I actually tried a couple of things, but it didn't work. God told me to sit for two years, then later revealed to me to start a tent ministry. Shortly after that, we were able to buy PASTOR STEVE JACKSON a tent and some chairs." Pastor Jackson said his wife and others were instrumental in making this happen. He also said he understands that it's not about the building, it's about souls. "I think God has been taken out of the church, and it's all about the building now. "My wife and I have been doing the tent ministry for 7 months in the University area, and we've heard testimonies from people of how their lives have changed. Some of them told us they turned away from church because of their addictions. That's when I realized you have tQ do God's busi-w ness." 9 Pastor Jackson said God thrust him into the min-= istry in 1997, under the direction of Pastor Randy White of Without Walls International. "Now, we're going to start a counseling center, 'Total Freedom Counseling Center.' For the past 18 months, my wife and I have been doing Christian counseling. We are both certified recovery and addiction counselors. And everything is Christian based." Pastor Jackson said right now, the Evangelistical Tent Revival is up and running; and they set up every other Saturday at 22nd Street and 138th Avenue. "This weekend, people wi1J. ., be able to attend a New Year's b Eve service without being out :::tl all night long.

Events That Made Headlines In 2011 BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel City Editor As the year 2011 draws to an end, the Sentinel looks back over some of the events that made headlines There were a wide range of topics that grabbed the headlines. Those events included deaths of prominent members of their respective communi ties, tragic accidents, and drama that unfolded in the courtrooms. Here are some of the events that were widely dis cussed in the community. The year began with the tragic n ews that the life of Eric Jerrod Allen, 19, was changed forever after he was shot. Allen, who was home from Florida A & M University for the holidays, was attending a party when shots were fired. He survived, but lost his eye. The battle raged on between former Tampa Police Captain Marion Lewis, Sr., and the City of Tampa. In January, the District Court of Appeal of Florida, Second District, issued a ruling in favor of Lewis. The court ruled that Lewis had the right to seek the office of Mayor of Tampa without having to re sign. Many residents complained to City Council about exces sively high water bills Members of City Council were also grappling with the formation of a new P anhan dlin g Ordinance Dontae Morris, was al r ea dy awaiti n g tri a l in the mur ders of Derek Anderson, on May 18th, Harold Wright, on June 8th and Tampa Police Officer Jeffrey Kocab and Officer David Curtis during 2010. In January, Morris was charged with the murder of Rodney Jones that took place on May 31, 2010. In February, Mrs. Mary Bryant, a retired educator, died suddenly. Mrs. Bryant was a pioneer in education in Hillsborough County. She made history in the Hillsborough County Public School District b y becoming the first African American woman to serve as an Area Director and as Assistant Superintendent for Support Services. Members of the community gathered at the former College Hill Library, 2607 E. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Blvd., for arenaming ceremony. It now bears the name of C.

Minister Andrew L. Manning, the m a n whose nam e was u se d to filed the d e segrega ti o n lawsuit aga inst Hillsborough County Board of Ed ucation died in March. He was s8 yea r s old. In April, the fate of a 4-year old r ep01ted missing conclud e d happily Jaiden Henry was reunited with his mother Ms. Sasha Earnest. His mother reported him mis s ing from h e r apartment that was ve1y close to the Hillsborough 'River. Police learned th e babysitter had KEVIN WHITE LEE ROY SELMON MS. MONICA ALVAREZ come and taken the child without notifying his mother. College Hill Pharmacy, founded by the late Dr. Calvin W. "Doc" Brown in 1953, closed after s8 years of service to the Black community. The community was shocked when the Federal Bureau of Investigations arrested Kevin White, a former Hills borough County Commissioner, and charged him with conspir acy to commit bribery; 4 counts of bribery; conspiracy to com mit mail and wire fraud; mail fraud wire fraud, and making false statements to law enforce ment. H e was convicted on 7 of the 10 charges in !'iove mber. In September ,'the commu nity was once again shocked with the news that retired ath lete Lee Roy Selmon died after suffering a massive stoke. Mr. Selmon was respected throughout the country as an outstanding athlete and humanitarian. He was 56 years old Hillsborough County Deputy Lyonelle DeVeaux credits her faith for her sur-. vival She was shot three tinles after responding to. a 9-1-1 hang up call.

The women were pushing their daughters in strollers when a driv e r struck them from behind on a poorly lit street without sidewalks. After her death, Ms. Nicole Walker began a mis sion of getting the street named in honm : of her sister. A Tampa family donated land for the creat ion of s idewalks in tl1e area. A rash of deaths involving young African American males prompted the call of a commu nity meeting.

The victims were : Novem-ber 2 --Timothy Miller; No vember 5 Hipolito Padilla; III; November 6--Jamarie Hodges; November 7 --Skeletal remains "11 found in vacant lot near Sligh 5 and 54th Street; November 9 2:! --Charon Shaw; c her 12 --Laronia Fay Bow-, )> ers; Faye Kitchen and tn Shannon Thomas, all of Pla!lt City; November 15 --::::!

As far as her trade is con cerned, Ms. Akwaaba said African hair braiding came naturally for her I picked it up from an aunt as a little girl. I did this back home, so I've been doing this a long time. This is what I warit to do, and later I'd like to make enough money to go back home. There's too much stress in the United States."

"There are a lot of shops in Ghana that do what I do so it's very competitive. My clients are drawn to me because they tell me I know what I'm doing. Ms. Akwaaba's salon is open 7 days a week, by ap pointment on Sundays. She also has someone working with her, and she says she manages to stay quite busy.

Remain Dedicated e: To Your lord There are times in life when you will be tempted, tested, and tried. Life brings a set of challenges and obstacles that you must work to overcome daily. Your life is more than what you think it is and more is at stake than you may realiz e You must recognize the reasons you are being tested and know why it is important to resist the temptations. This week's lesson in When reading this story it is important not to limit the message to being only tempted by physical pleasures The meaning of this story transcends sexual immorality and adultery. Many church people will dismiss this lesson because it is about sex and adultery. -Genesis 39:7-21A involving Joseph and Mrs. 9 Potiphar teaches the fE church life lessons on being c tempted and what the ::i enemy will do when you > resist the pressure. < When reading this story see yourself as Joseph, Mrs. Potiphar as the enemy and God as the Master. This story helps the believer to see his p l ace with God and all God has instructed into his hands. It also shows how the enemy will try to tempt you and sway you to do evil.

Mrs. Potiphar took notice of Joseph and commanded him to sleep with her. The enemy will see some good qualities in you and have a desire to have you. For Joseph it was a physical sexual relationship, but for you it may be some other way you can satisfy another need She perhaps looked at Joseph and thought that because he was a servant she could order him to do what she wanted. The enemy will look at you and think that you are in a subservient position and you must do whatever they ask. Joseph refused the invitation by reminding her of the blessed position he held in the house (vs. 8). Joseph infor.med and reminded her of the trust the master had placed in him over the-entire house. Joseph knew that what he had with the master was more than what a moment of pleasure would be with her. NEW MT. ZION M. B. CHURCH, INC. 2511 E. Columbus Dr. (813) 248-8101 or (813) 247-3899 REV.

Clarence Fort, Deacons Minist When you are tempted by the enemy to do things that you know are outside of the will of God, you have to remind yourself or the indi vidual of the blessings you have by remaining faithful to your Master, God. God has indeed blessed you and you have been given author ity over much of what the Lord owns No matter what Joseph said or how much he tried to convince her that her request would not be granted, she still pressed him every day (vs. io). Please -do not think that the enemy is going to stop his pursuit just because of your strong conviction to do what is right. The enemy knows your value and your worth. He sees the goodness about you and the favor of God on you. The enemy of your life will do whatever it takes to get you off track. In response to his denials of her request she plotted a scheme against him. While FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH OF COLLEGE HILL he was doing what he was called to do she made an advance toward him and grabbed hold of his clothes; he tried to get away from her leaving some of his clothes behind; to get back at him she accused him of trying to rape her (vv. 13-19). When the enemy cannot get you by appealing to the lust of the flesh, he will take advantage of other opportunities by making up stuff. There have been people :p,ut in jail by being fals'$ly accused. When you rem:hln focused on what God has called you to do, the enemy will bring false accusations against you. They put him in jail, but the blessing was that God was still with him (vs. 21a). Even when the enemy brings false charges against you and put you in a place of bondage, God will be with you. God will not leave you when you are suffering for righteousness sake. NEW FRIENDSHIP M.B.

Loca Holidavs Tough Time For Woman Who loss Two Children To Violence BY LEON B. CREWS Sentinel StaffWriter Judy Brito said regardless of what some people have been saying, her life has been in constant turmoil since her chil dren were murdered in June. Last week, Brito hosted a concert in honor of her chil dren, Kiara, 16, and Jeremi, 13. They were found shot to death in their South Tampa home. Tampa Police arrested two men for the offense. The theme of the concert was "Stop The Violence," and she said it turned out great, but she was disappointed more young people didn t show up. "We raised $soo that will go toward other projects I'm working on to steer young peo-' ple away from violence. I'm also working getting my non profit status. When I do that, I'll be able to do a lot more. "I've been successful in set ting up agreements with busi. nesses in South Tampa and I'm also working on some fundraisers." Brito said it is her goal to give away three, $1,000 schol arships every year to deserving teenagers. I've also done a toy drive JUDY BRITO and other projects. "Staying busy has been great therapy for me, and I'm still seeing counselors to deal with the loss of my children. I also see rp.y doctor every three months to be evaluated on the medication I'm taking Brito said life is a struggle and this time of year makes it even more painful for her be cause of the special thing she and her children did together. We d start with Thanks giving, then later Christmas and New Year's. Since my birthday is on January 7th, we always celebrated that day well. "We did so many special things together this time of Pastor: Darrick& Fullwood year, and just thinking about it brings me a lot of pain." Brito said right now, she's just trying to. make it to the next day. "Not having family around for support makes it really tough I have to deal with this alone and that's when I get de pressed and cry a lot. I can't celebrate any more holidays without my children. It' s just not the same and when those days roll around, I'll always think of them. I do have a few friends I can talk to, especially when I'm really feeling low." Brito feels if she can just keep busy working on commu nity projects and the founda tion she's created in the name of her two children, things will settle down for her a little. The pain of losing your children never goes away. You just have to get to a point in your life where you can deal with it without destroying yourself. That's where I am now. Brito said she appreciates all the support she s gotten from the people of South Tampa, and she wants to make sure they are still around when she la_unches her agenda for 2012.

Here are a few ways that exercise can benefit people with lupus : Fatigue. Being physically active helps prevent fatigue, a major symptom of lupus. If you have lupus, you're at risk of getting heart disease up to 20 years sooner than most people. Regular exercise, like walking or biking, can de crease your risk of heart dis ease. Obesity. Obesity is a common problem in people with lupus. Obesity can in crease your level of pain, put more strain on inflamed joints, increase your risk of heart disease, and make your fatigue worse. Osteoporosis. Women with lupus are especially vul nerable to osteoporosis. Loss of bone mass has beerY re ported to be as high as 46% in these patients. Weight bearing physical exe rcise is an important part of osteo porosis prevention. Sleep Disturbances. People with lupus have more problems sleeping than most people. This can add to lupus fatigue and stress. Many studies show that aerobic ex e rcise is one of the best ways to improve sleep. Quality Of Life. Because lupus is a chronic and unpre dictable disease, it can pro duce stress and anxiety. Aerobic exercise has been found to reduce depression in people with lupus and im prove their overall sense of well -being. Curb Your Cravings Bv Drinking Milk Drinking 3 cups of milk throughout the day turns off your cravings Milk knocks out the munchies in two ways : 1) It's calcium blocks the brain chemical that revs your appetite; and 2) Milks rich source of Vi tamin D helps increase pro duction of feel-good hormones, so you're less likely to turn to food to feel better! Also, Calcium binds to fat molecules and flushes them out of your body, while Vita min D prompts the body to break down fat instead of storing it. Fresh Vegetables vs. Frozen Vegetables African Americans typi cally eat only one-third of the recommended daily intake (three servings instead of nine) of fruits and vegeta bles, so if you're in a bind, a vegetable in any form is bet. ter than no vegetable at all. While canned vegetables tend to lose a lot of nutrients during the preservation process (notable exceptions include tomatoes and pump kin), frozen vegetables may be even more healthful than some of the fresh produce sold in supermarkets. Bottom Line When vegetables are in-season, buy them fresh and ripe. During the off-season, frozen vege tables Will give you a high concentration of nutrients. But, eat frozen vegetables soon after purchase because over many months, nutrients in frozen vegetables do inevitably degrade. Finally steam or mi crowave (don't boil) your produce to minimize the loss of water-soluble vitamins.

DONALD TRUMP Donald Trump has for saken his Republican Party affiliation, and President Obama supporters should be thrilled. Trump -the real estate mogul and self proclaimed billionaire, reality show king, birther and now perennial political interloper -has decided to switch his New York state voter affiliation from Republican to unaffiliated in order to leave his options open for a 2012 presidential run. The Donald's entry into the presidential race as an independent candidate is exciting, but not necessarily because he could win more votes than the GOP nominee. Rather, Trump would serve as the wild card in the race forcing the Republican nominee to tack further right in the general election, and pay respects to the TeaParty and the handful of remaining birthers out there In blocking the law, the The state can appeal the Obama Administration said decision at the Justice the state's law, requiring voters Department or in federal to show specific types of statecourt. issued identification in order Democrats have accused to vote, could make it difficult Republican legislators in South for minorities to cast a ballot Carolina and other states of Under the law, anyone who passing voter m laws in or&er does not have a photo identifi-to. suppress the votes' of cation must obtain a new voter minorities, young people and registration card that includes others who typically vote a photo A birth certificate or Democratic, and who are less passport can be used to prove likely to have the required identity. types of identification, in an The Justice Department attempt to reduce the votes said the requirement could available to Pres.
