Residents Share Opinions On Dr. Martin luther Kinu, Jr.'s leuacv. BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel City Editor On Monday, we will cele brate the 82"d birthday of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Some readers shared their opinion as we celebrate the life and legacy of the late Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and responded to th e question What portion of Dr. King's dream has be come his legacy?" Dr. Samuel Wright "Dr. King's overall espousal of faith-filled words ulti matel y has become his legacy He spoke about things that were far-fetched but today many of.them have materialized He is the only Black in America, I: who has a holida y in his .1.. memory; but was never ::l elected to any public office ; the election of the first Black >-President of the United States has taken place; desegrega'f) tion of schools and universi-11 :J ties like never before and believe it or not, a greater assemblage of Blacks and .IJ whites in churches during the > noon hour in America. .LI ::l Ms. Ann Porter said, 11 One of the primary focuses :c 'f) of Dr. King's dream has be-J come a reality.

Clinton Paris "Eighty-two years after the birth of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., his legacy is one of our share d r e sponsibilities to each other. We must work to right wrongs and collectivel y strive in own individual way to make the world a more hu mane place for all to live." Billy Wheeler said I think Dr. vision to racial segre gation has be come reality; it is a great part of his legacy. With effort and prepa r ation ,our children are able to go any where and do anything they wish by use of their intelli gence and resources." Danny Green said, "The legacy that -has become a reality is that some of the little Black and white boys and girls have certainly joined hands as sisters and brothers. With out a doubt the "victorious" accomplishment is President Obama!" Dr. According to Dr. King's dream, Pres. Barack Obama demonstrate d a chiev ement in a portion of his legacy; in dicating c olor or skin and content of character. Dr. King tried to bring America together via politics of moral suasion adherence to not only what is right but what is just; justice being the stan dard for all that is right (not the other wa y around). What some think is right isn't al ways just, but what is just is always right.

As a result, many African Americans rose to great heights in cluding the presidency of the United States. "However, HOWARD HARRIS many who made it do not reach back to assist our chil dren through mentoring and tutoring. Keeping the dream alive can be accomplished with a few hours of volunteer ing." Milton Andrews said, "The portion of Dr. King's dream that has become his legacy in my opinion is the new and revised interpreta tion of the 14th Amendment ; which guarantees all Ameri cans equal prote ction under the law. "This revised view of the law not only includes people of color, but involves those from all walks of life, nation ality, orientation race and gender." James Ransom said, The dream that one day the nation will rise and live out its true meaning that all men are created equal is supported by the na tions laws but all in the nation do not this creed. "The dream that sons of former slaves and slave own ers sitting down together at the table of brotherhood is mostly true in larger cities, still a work in process in many other places. This dream has imprqved by the nation's laws, which are supposed to ensure justice for all. How ever, the percentage of incar cerated Blacks is far greater than any other race, which teeks of injustice and continued unfair and inequitable treatment. In employment, education and business indi cates that this dream is still unfulfilled "The dream that all children will live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character is better, but still a work in progress most recent example-the disrespect of our na tion's President Barack Obama -the work is not over! "The dream that little Black boys and white girls will be able to hold hands and sisters and brothers is topically true. "The dream that every val ley shall be exalted, every hill and mountain made low, the rough places will be made plain, and the crooked places will be made straight, and the glory of the Lord shall be re vealed, and all flesh shall see it together is inevitable."

Features Citv Council Votes 4-3 To Pav $65,000 For House At Center 01 Communitv Controversv BY LEON B. CREWS Sentinel Staff Writer Four members of the Tampa City Council Thursday voted to move ahead with the purchase of a house that is at the center of a controversial issue: the construction of a roundabout at the junction of 22nd and 21st Streets. Led by the Councilman that represents Tampa, Frank Reddick, Yolie Mike Suarez and Charlie Miranda voted yes to pay $65,000 for a house appraised at $28,000 located at 3020 E. 22nd Street owned by Linear Capital, LLC. Linear Capital is a company owned by Tampa Real Estate and Foreclosure lawyer Barry Silber and family. The real issue however is, why was the purchase of the house on the CRA board' s agenda in the first place Councilman Reddick, who is the CRA chair, (and approves the agenda items) when called did not seem surprised that the item was there, however, he did ask that they go back and amend the language to read that only $28,ooo of East Tampa TIFF funds for the purchase be used. The other $37,000 was supposedly found and approved to be funded by the City. The issue is that the only need to purchase the house was because it would be needed to build a roundabout. However, the Council has not approved the round about. At the November CRA meeting,-Reddick asked the community to go back and render a vote on the. Roundabout since there was controversy surrounding the Special Call meeting of the East Tampa Partnership in September. According to some board members during an early vote Partnership members voted the roundabout down. However, as people came in, a second vote was taken and the vote came back 15-7 for the roundabout. When the Partnership vote and CRA Board vote became public, concerns about the roundabout, it's cost, $1.7 million and the safety were question. The new meeting requested by Reddick was held December 5th. Over 70 people attended the meeting, with city employees heavily present. The proposed pro ject's engineer was also pre sent. She was overheard asking East Tampa manager, Ed Johnson, "what happened" after the vote came back 26-25 AGAINST the roundabout. At the December CRA Board meeting a few days later, the city attorney stalled the vote by the coun cil to vote on the Roundabout, stating it was not on the agenda, and could not be voted on. At the January CRA board meeting, Council members Mary Mulhern, Lisa Montileone, and Harry Cohen voted NO. Citizens spoke for and against the project. Those that -spoke for the project were past CRA board members, who were involved with the proposal when it was put on the table back in 2007. Frank Reddick was also very involved when he was East Tampa's interim councilman. Councilwoman Lisa Montileone was against the project, because she said the city is already experienc ing budgetary problems and declining property values We don't have funds iden tified in the budget for this project. When the city does a project, it's not done with an open checkbook. I think if we approve this, it will s end out the message that no matter what the valu e of a property is, people can demand more." Councilwoman Mary Mulhern said she couldn t approve the purchase, because the outcry from th e community has been strong. "This community is telling us this not what they want, and we're not listening to them." Councilman Harry Cohen said he was against the project because of the dissention it has created in the community. ''I'm not comfortable mov ing forward on something that hasn't been settled." AtLarge councilpersons, Suarez stated on more than one occasion that he based his decision on what Reddick wanted, because it was his district and he had been involved with the proposed project for a long time. Capin (who has been for roundabouts, in general, did not say much, but agreed. West Tampa district councilman, Miranda stat ed that he has been against roundabouts, and stated that one local roundabout was dangerous, however he voted yes to purchase the house.

"11 :::D 6 Judge Dismisses lawsuit Against Tampa Housing Authoritv l< c.. )> z c:: )> JJ < BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel City EditorEarlier this week, a U. S. District judge dismissed a lawsuit filed against the Tampa Housing Authority. Several former residents of the Tampa Housing Authority filed the lawsuit in November 2011. In a written order, Judge James D. Whittemore cited several reasons for dis missing the lawsuit. "Even a cursory review of the Complaint :reveals that it is replete with numerous tech nical and substantive deficiencies warranting dismissal." The lawsuit was dismissed without prejudice. The ruling gives the plaintiffs 20 days to file an amended complaint. The lawsuit named the Tampa Housing Authority, its CEO/President, Jerome Ryans, City of Tampa and Housing and Urban Development (HUD). It was filed in the U. S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida, on Friday, November 4, 2011. 1\) The civil suit, filed through the Law Office Of Kaydell N Wright-Douglas, Esquire, stated that in four former hou sing complexes, Central Park Village, Ponce de Leon, Coilege Hill Homes, and Riverview Terrace did not receive their utility allowances as stipulated by HUD. The suit covers a period from 1999 to 2007. Plaintiffs listed in the law..: suit were Annie Bright, Patricia Brown, Brenda L. Catuy, Maryse Bernestine Cotton, Doniquisha Donaldson, Carol A.

Scon And Voter Amnesia H e smiles. But some people say it ends there. Could it be that America's least-liked governor has not yet, ti.nderstood that part of his problem is the fact many of his former voters have long memories. What Gov. Scott did was gut the state's education budget. Despite pleas of mercy from teachers, administrators and from his own lieutenants, he did. Here lately, Scott has gotten new religion. For, just the other day, he announced a $1 billion increase to none other than the State Department of Education. Observers are asking, "What gives?" At the same time he and his buddies offered an olive branch to state education, Gov. Scott has once more ravaged hospitals and Medicaid. Indeed, it seems like the only Florida group to see Gov. Scott as Robin Hood is the group made up of small businesses and corporations. On their behalf, our own great Scott vows to cut income taxes arguing such a magnanimous move would somehow spur Florida prosperity. Yes, we applaud Governor Scott's decision to aid a cash-strapped education budget. But we do not applaud resolve to give the fox more eggs from the henhouse, nor to penalize poor folks because they have the audacity to get sick. No, we may not be politicians, but it doesn't take a governor to understand common sense and human decency. Sentinel Office Hours: Closed MONDAY, JANUARY 16, 2012 (Paper Delivery Only) Papers Can Be Picked Up @ 4 P.M. I have been attending TOEA's Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s Breakfast cere monies since the first one they presented, years ago. For those of you who've never heard of TOBA, that's the Tampa Organization of Black Affairs. Made up of some of our city's finest minds and initiatives, TOBA doesn't only include Black people. Whites, Latin His panics Jews Muslims and members of many other col ors, creeds and religions are also part of this annual ban ner ceremony. And as said, I am there, too. Looking back to last year s breakfast, there was I. sharp as a razor in my dark three-piece suit (they're coming back in style y' know). My tie was tied in a diamond knot, had on Stacey Adams' shoes and my fa vorite socks. Shaved my head until it was cue-ball clean, and brushed my teeth until they fairly gleamed. My Volkswagen was ready since I took it to the car wash the previous night. But there was only one problem. I had forgotten to gas up. So, after feeding Wisdom my pit bull, I jumped into my VW and headed for the nearest Cir cleK to get some gas. The sun had not come up. Streets were empty as I pulled into a gas station. I crawled out of my car, went inside the store, paid the man $2o for regular gas in "Pump Six," and then pro ceeded to hum "We Shall Over-cooooooome" as the petrol percolated into my car's empty-tank. No doubt, I was in my own world, and did not notice whoever he was who literally came out of nowhere and was standing beside me before I could fin ish singing, "We shall over come soooooome daaaaaay! 'Liked to have scared me half to death! But I was cool. "' Sup? I said. "You got it," he answered, never taking his eyes off of me because I dare not take my eyes off of him. "So, can I help y ou?," I mustered up enough courage to ask. Nope," he mumbled. "'J ust chillin'," he said. Then th e stranger said "You look nice this mornin'. " Uh-oh," I thought to myself, "here it comes! " Brotha, I don't have any change," I sputtered. But the stranger stopped me mid-sentence. "Hey, man, he smiled, "I ain t asked you for no money. I just wanted to share some love with you, this mornin and ask you where you might be headed." "Do you need a ride?" I meekly inquired. Naaaw, man, I have some other places I've got to be but you looked so professional this mornin', I thought I'd ask you where you were headed." And so, I told him. I told this stranger about TOBA, and about the TOBA MLK Breakfast that I had never missed since its inception. We laughed as I told the stranger about a menu of scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, and biscuits, a menu that seemingly hadn't changed in the past twenty years. Then he said, "So, that's why you're going: to get breakfast?" I turned serious and assQred him that I at tended the MLK breakfast because of the man in whose name it was presented. "And what do you think about King?" the stranger asked. That's Rev. Dr. Marlin Luther King, Jr., to you/' I corrected him. And the stranger smiled. Then he made a curious statement He said, Remember to tell them that I tried to feed the hungry, I did try to clothe those who were naked, that I did try in my life, to visit those who were in prison, and that I tried to love and serve humanity." "WHAT?" I sputtered. "WHO ARE YOU?" But when I turned around to get a good look at him, the stranger was gone. Lord knows I felt a chill go through my body. I attended the MLK Breakfast. But I never told a soul. You are the first ones to hear my story. Tell me . Do you think that stranger was Rev. "Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.?

Riuhtldea ... Wrong Approach This may rub some people the wrong way. But I've come to the conclusion that human beings, by nature, love making hollow gestures. And Black people may be the worst offenders. J don't know when it start ed or how we developed the expertise. But, at some point in time, we perfected finding accomplishment in the sim ple act of just attempting. We are the absolute best at creating slogans, organizing workshops and setting up committees. But when it comes down to actually solve ing whatever issue that pre-. fE sents itself, we become come pletely clueless. Z Out of desperation we tend to lean toward pre-fabricat< ed blueprints to address neighborhood specific needs. And when it's all said t-and qone, the results are > always the same. Negative. ffi I was reminded of this iii recently when I ran across e two articles in the Florida W Sentinel about a planned Stop The Violence meeting ::J and a Gun Buy Back program sponsored by the D.. Tampa Police Department. After reading both stories, I t-w ...I ...I ::J m ...I w z i= z w en < e a: 0 ...I LL couldn't help but think to myself, "here we go again." I thought that we learned from the generic "Say No To Drugs" and "This Is Your Brain On Drugs" campaigns from the late 8o's and early 90's that such lame approaches don't work? I guess I was wrong. Not to offend the organiz. ers of these events. I'm sure they're sincere about wanti ng to help the current situa tion. But, every time I read or hear about an organization who thinks that they can somehow eradicate any illness in our society by sim ply yelling STOP," it rein forces how completely out of touch many so-called local leaders are. What I don't believe they realize is that when they throw these STOP The Violence type rallies or func tions, they 're not attracting the audience they re target ing. The people who show up in support aren' t the one's packing AK-47s. It's the stick-up kid out of Sulphur Springs who the y' re trying to reach And unfor tunately, he's not listening. To think that a colorful mantra posted on billboards or chanted by a group of marchers one Saturday afternoon will prevent an overly-possessive boyfriend from killing his girlfriend or have a carjacker think twice before placing two bullet holes inside of any potential witnesses can only be described as extremely naive. And that's putting it politely. Like I said before, this is no jab toward the people trying to do something positive. It's just that their methodology is a re-hash of old ideas that were ineffective the first time around. Why re-make a bad movie? In the end, the only people who benefit from these types of activities are the community activist/business owner who gets free publicity and the camera loving politician who can always use good press cover age. If the truth weren't so sad, it would actually make for a good joke. It' s just too bad that those who are watching us from a distance are the only ones who can appreci ate the humor.

When it comes to manip\llating racial stereotypes for political gain, they are akin to animation artists of the 1920s: coloring the lines in black and white. Last Thursday Newt Gingrich told a crowd of senior citizens in New Hampshire, "The AfricanAmerican community should demand paychecks and not be satisfied with food stamps." Rick Santorum was even more egregious, claiming he doesn't "want to make Black people's lives better by giving them other people's money" (although he later claimed that he never inten tionally said "Black"). Gingrich's latest offense comes only weeks after he received widespread criticism for saying that poor children should work as janitors and clean toilets. He specifically made a point of addressing "inner city" youths which has become conservative code for Black and Brown people everywhere, from the South to the coasts, the suburbs to the metropolises, regardless of where they actually live. For some odd reason this is acceptable rhetoric among the conservative political class. It is especially troubling because every reliable statistic shows that white Americans are the over-whelming beneficiaries of welfare in this country and make up the largest number of those in poverty by a wide and substantial margin. The Republicans' well-rehearsed lies on the subject have been so effective that people of every hue have come to believe them, feeding wide. spread ignorance about the true face of poverty and the ever-growing gap betweeJ?. America's rich and poor. Perhaps it's time for a les son in mathematics and his tory According to the New York Times, 36 million Americans relied on food stamps. More than 24 million of them were white, 8 million were African American and 6 million were Hispanic or another race. Like everyone struggling to provide for their families amid the nation's economic challenges, poor whites are .a demographic sorely in need of progressive answers to their socioeconomic ills. Yet many remain adherent to a racially polarizing; Republican Party that has: taught them to fear Obama as "alien" or "other." i' From Ronald Reagan to Gingrich to Santorum, race-baiting has only profited the Republican leaders who have sold it. Those at the bottom, and poor whites in particular, are left to pay the price. ''CALL RICKY'' ''ASK RICKY'' AUTO ACCIDENT HELPLINE: Injured? Need a Doctor? Lawyer?

The photographs are accompanied by recorded stories from each woman, collected, and written by Craig Marberry. All of the hats in the book were photographed in black and white Cunningham said, "I didn't want the photographs to feel or look like fashion photos. I also felt that color would have placed too much em phasis on the hats instead of the women wearing them. "Most of all, I thought the black and white medium would create a look of fine art. I want the people who look at each photograph to reach in deep and discover something special about the crown and the queen it adorns."

Local Retired School Sherin Dedicates Annex In Honor Emplovee launches Of Former NFL Standout, Coach. W b .1 T Nearly 200 people gath--< e Sl e 0 ered at the Hillsborough f County Sheriffs Operations 0 1i II I St Office in Ybor The pur-..., e Is 0 rv pose of the gathering was the N dedication of the Sheriffs BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel City Editor Henry Ballard retired as the Office of Diversity Services (OSD) Manager for the Hills borough County School Dis trict in June. However, after his retirement, Ballard went public with allegations of retal iation, unfair pay, and discrim ination. After several attempts to correct injustices that he has suffered working within the system, Ballard filed a com plaint with the Equal Employ..: ment Office CommisSion on September 14, 2011. That in vestigation is underway. Now, in an attempt to share information about his case with the community at large, Ballard plans to launch a website on January 16th, the official Martin Luther King, Jr., holiday. "I'm going to tell my story on M. L. King Day I want everyone to read the docu ments for themselves. Our mis. sion statement clearly defines that the Superintendent (MaryEllen Elia) has not done her due diligence to in form the board of what has taken place." In keeping with the rules of the School District Ballard filed a grievance with the school district. He appeared before the Hillsborough County School Board on September 6th to respond to level III in reference to that griev ance. -Ballard said his on-going battle began in March 2008, after his position changed and with it came more responsibil ity. However, his pay grade re mained the same. He brought the matter to the attention of his immediate supervisor and to Mrs. MaryEllen Elia, and was eventually given a 68 cents an hour raise along with a change of his pay grade. His complaint is that the difference in his salary and that of others in comparable posi tions was approximately $35,000 less per year. He said HENRY BALLARD Retired ODS Officer for the Hillsborough County School District the District has refused to for mally review the position and adjust the salary as it should be. Ballard says he feels that he has been disrespected and not treated fairly by the Superintendent and some of the board members. When asked why he waited until after his retirement to correct the wrong Ballard said, No one knows what I have h a d to endure to make that office s u ccessful. I worked tirelessly to make it the award winning program that it is today. But I have not been treated fairly. I submitted a packet for the board onl y to be told that discs placed in the packet were missing and that I was not allowed to re-submit them. "Whe n the position was created and I was appointed in 1994, the position was under the board's jurisdiction. We cannot find any documentation pertaining to that changing. The Superintendent to this day, has no right to make deci sions pertaining to the OSD," Ballard said. He further stated that all of the documentation supporting his position can be located on the website in chrono logical order. "I don't want people to take my word for it, I want them to go to www whydoright.com and read the information for themselves," Ballard said. Annex. Wednesday, January nth, was also the 59th birthday of Freddie Solomon, a 20-year employee of the Hillsborough County Sheriffs Office Sheriff David Gee said it was difficult to keep the dedi cation a secret as the workers completed the work. "We worked with spotlights and flashlights at night. And we had to make sure that he didn't enter the building on that side. Keeping secrets around the Sheriffs Office is not easy." Solomon, who is battling colon cancer said, "This is overwhelming. I'm grateful and humbled that you think enough of me to do this." A native of Sumter, South Carolina Solomon began his football career in high school. He entered the University of Tampa where he continued to play setting records along the way. In 1975, he was drafted b y the Miami Dolphins In 1978 he moved to the San Francisco Freddie Solomon stands beside the plaque dedic,;1ting the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Annex in Ybor City in his honor.

As a person he is one of the best men I have ever known. He has two Super Bowl rings, but doesn't wear them because he's just a humble person. "We tried to give him a newer car, but he didn't want it because some of the kids he works with don't have a lot He doesn t buy into the flash. --Freddie Solomon Sheriff Gee said although Solomon is ill, he stiU works from home when he can and is always trying to do something positive. Solomon joined the Sheriffs Office in 1991. During his tenure he has worked behind 0 the scenes ii;l various capacities with youngsters.

It was immediately certified to the House of Representatives. Senate Bill 524, the "Healthy Pregnancies for Incarcerated Women Act," would add Florida to the growing list of states that have enacted similar bans. Shackl i ng of women during labor is alread y restricted b y the Federal Bureau of Prisons and the U. S. Marshal's Service.

Wben you have ac cepted your purpose you are less likely to give people power over your life and destiny. This is the situation of Joseph in this week's lesson from Genesis 45:3-15. Joseph had a reunion with his brothers after the many years that had passed. Joseph re membered the .actions of his brothers but he aiso understood the purpose. Joseph asked his brothers about their father but they couldn't respond because they were afraid of him (vs. 3). Joseph's brothers are thinking that he is going to get revenge on them for selling him into slavery. Joseph s mind is not on seek ing revenge because he knows his purpose. Wben you know your purpose and discover why God allows some things to hap pen in your life you do not have to spend time seeking revenge. You realize that I am in a better place now and I can move on and focus on what is really im portant Joseph comforted his broth ers by letting them know why God allowed them to sell him into slavery. God allowed it to happen so that he could go ahead of them to save their life (vs.5). Them selling him into slavery made it possible for him to be in a better situation to help them Sometimes when people hurt you or betray you God can use it to get you out of a situation that will move you to a better place . If you are honest with your self,' your spiritual growth has come as a result of some trou bling or hurtful situation. Some people discovered their purpose in life after spending years in prison. Some people were hard pressed to find their purpose after hitting rock-bottom from drugs and. alcqhol. Josephgives them a tip that there are more difficult days ahead God has positioned him BROWN MEMORIAL CHURCH OF GOD IN CHRIST 2313 E. _27th AVE.

At age so, the screening should be done annually. Women with a family history need earlier and sometimes more frequent screening. Check-ups for women between 18-39 should include: > Cholesterol screening > Blood pressure check > BMicheck > Pelvic exam >Pap smear > Immunizations > Vision check-ups >Dental check-ups Women between 40-64 may also need: Screening tests for colon cancer and for osteoporosis Any woman who is post menopausal and had a fracture needs a bone densitY scan to screen for osteoporo sis. Women with risk factors for osteoporosis should be screened earlier than age 65. Colorectal screening is a must starting at age so for men and women; But if you have a positive family history of colon eancer, you will start at age 40. Women over 6S need all of these screenings, check-ups, and immuniza tions, but the frequency may change as they age. For Men Starting at age so, most men need a prostate-specific antigen (PSA) test and a dig ital rectal exam to check for prostate cancer. Men at greater risk, including African-American men and any man with a family his tory of prostate cancer, gen erally need screenings by the 4S > Check-ups for men be tween the ages of 18 and 39 should include: > Cholesterol and blood pressure check > Vision and dental exam > Immujlizations > Men between the ages of 40 and 64 may also need: > Screening tests for colon cancer (starting at age so) > Screening tests for os teoporosis, called a bone density scan. When it comes to osteo porosis screening, any man between the ages of so-70 with risk factors for osteo porosis should have a con versation with his doctor about getting a bone den sity test. Men over 6S still need these check-ups, but some times at different intervals, particularly as health condi tions and symptoms arise. arv Cancer Awareness Mont.h The Florida Department of Health Breast and Ceivical Cancer Early Detection Pro. gram wants all women in Florida to know that cervical cancer is preventable with regular screening tests. and follow-up. Cervical cancer is also highly curable when found and treated early. Although cervical cancer occurs most often in women over age 30, all women are at risk for cer vical cancer. The main cause of cervical cancer is the human papillo mavirus (HPV), a common virus that can be passed from one person to another during sex. Many people will have an HPV infection at some time in their lives, but be cause HPV usually goes away on its own, few will get cervi cal cancer. The Florida Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detec. tion Program makes it easy to get the breast and cervical cancer screenings that doctors recommend. Screenings are free or with minimal cost if you meet program eligibility ments. You qualify if you: Are a woman aged so to 64, and Do not have insurance that covers the Pap smear tests, and Meet the income guide line, which is a household in. come at or oelow 200% of the Federal poverty level.

National Police Kill Man AflerHuuls Mistaken For Anack OSCAR. BARTHOLOMEW A Toronto man who went to his Grenada over the holidays to visit family was beaten to death by police officers over a mistakenhug. Oscar Bartholomew's family is outraged that the officers accused of killing the 39-year-Old are only fac ing manslaughter charges. "Everybody is upset," Anastasia Bartholomew said. Oscar Bartholomew reportedly stopped at a police station with his wife so she could use the restroom. While his wife was in the restroom, Oscar saw a female police officer who he thought was an old friend. He ran up to her and grabbed her from behind, 0 hugging her while he lifted her in the air. Unfortunately for him, the person he lifted in the air wasn't his old friend, who his family claims was also a cop. Once fellow officers saw this, they attacked him and allegedly bound his hands and feet with duct tape. A few hours later he was taken to a hospital, where he died the next day from multiple .. head injuries. Five Royal Grenada Police Force officers are now accused of manslimgh ter.

Paul's voting record in the House was scrutinized during this weekend's GOP presidential debates in New Hampshire. (Mainly for his unsuccessful attempts to pass any meaningful legislation) But what was not discussed was his refusal to support the upcoming Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday. While his supports link to a file claiming he did vote for MLK Day, the facts say otherwise.

J.amaica Plans To Cut Ties With British Monarchv KINGSTON, JAMAICAN -Prime Minister, Portia Simpson Miller plans to cut ties with the British monarchy and declare Jamaica an independent republic. Jamaica has been independent for almost so years as it left the British Empire in 1962, but the Jamaican constitution still lists Britain's Queen Elizabeth II as the head of state. FAMU Drum Maior Targeted Because He Opposed Hazing TAbLAHASSEE :_ The parents of Florida A&M University drum major, Robert Champion, Jr. who police believe died after a violent hazing, said Tuesday that son may have been hazed more severely than other students because of his opposition to the practice. "Robert Champion; Jr. was the poster child of anti-hazing. He threatened the very institution of hazing in this band," said Attorney Christopher Chestnut, a lawyer for Chainpion's family. During the family's inves tigation into what happened to their son they discovered that Champion was gay, but also concluded that was not a reason fo.r his alleged hazing. "This is not a hate crime," Chestnut said during a news conference Tuesday. "This is a hazing crime. That is what we are here to say today." "We don't have all the answers and all the details," Pam Champion said Tuesday. "My son, he loved his music. He loved the band. His demeanor was inore like following all the rules, doing what you should do as a band mem ber. He was a perfectionist ... He expected everybody to ROBERT CHAMPION, JR. do the same." Robert Champion, Jr., 26, was a member of the college's "Marching 100" band when he collapsed and died Nov. 19, 2011, on a bus outside an Orlando, FL, hotel after a football game. Authorities said they believed that hazing was involved. Sources said on Tuesday that Chestnut had been interviewing Witnesses for a legal case when. he ered that Champion was gay. Champion's parents were vaguely aware of his sexuality, but did not that there were rumors of a connection to his death. "Robert did have, ali alternative lifestyle," Chestnut said Tuesday. He said witnesses said that Wa.s not a primacy factor ill the hazing, "It's difficult to know the true motives of every person." The school fired director, Julian White and suspended all performance and engagements of any bands and White was later reinstated Tired of paying Tax Prtparation & Bank Call NOWI -and put on administrative leave.

Basic Maintenance For Your ComputerAll About Viruses Hello again everyone. This week I want to discuss another important aspect of basic computer maintenance, computer viruses. Viruses can affect you and your computer in lots of very unpleasant ways, but luckily are fairly easy and inexpensive to avoid. In this column I want to discuss what viruses are, how to avoid them, and how to get rid of them once you've got one First, what are viruses? By definition, viruses are software programs that can replicate themselves. Like viruses that infect the human population, computer viruses infect computers and can spread from computer to computer through the Internet (email and websites), or through shared media such as flash drives. Different viruses have different intentions. Some are only programmed to spread while others are programed to spread and render your computer unusable. One of the worst and most common viruses currentl y on the wild today is something I call the extortionist virus." Using names like "Windows Security 2012", "Windows 7 Internet Security 2012" or "Windows Home Security 2012", this virus first tricks the user into installing it by masquerading as actual virus protection, and then promises to protect you if only you'll provide your credit card number to purchase it online. The user will receive con tinuous popups; telling them that they are infected with thousands of viruses The popups are so numerous that they have the affect ren dering your computer use less, except for providing the ability of the user t{) provide their credit card information. But beware, providing your credit card information will not solve your problem, but instead, you will have provided your information to be used and sold on the Internet for someone to try to empty your bank account or run up your credit card balance. Hope this was helpful. I can be reached via email at RSmith@computermenfor additional assis tance.

This astonishing recogni tion of Black initiative and leadership would have been inconceivable a few years ago, and it marks a great di vide in the relationship between Black and White Americans. For on King Day, Americans of all races, backgrounds and political persuasions, segregationists as well as integrationists, will be forced to take official notice not only of Martin Luther King, Jr., but also of the maids, sharecroppers, the students, and the Rosa Parkses who made him what he was. This is the tradition and hope that the Martin Luther King, Jr., holiday brings to the Republic. And that tradition speaks in and through the King Holiday, telling us that a people who could produce a King has no need for fears or apolo gies or doubts. As the first Black American so honored, Martin Luther King, Jr.,joins the most exclusive of all Ameri can clubs. Ironically, and ) I \I u Abraham Lincoln Theodor Herzl, Gandhi Benjamin Mays, Rosa Parks, Bayard Rustin, Henry David Thoreau, Howard Thurman and Leo Tolstoy significantly, the only other American honored by a na tional holiday is George Washington. There is irony -and truth in this. For King and his nonviolent army gave Amer ica a new birth of freedom. They banished the Jim Crow signs, browned American politics, and transformed the student movement, the women's movement, and the church. And all Americans are indebted to King and the nonviolent liberators who broke into American history like beneficent burglars, bringing with them the gifts of vision, passion, and truth. It can be argued, in fact, that King freed more White people than Black people. This, then, is a national holiday with national impli cations. And we are called, in and through the holiday, to the national task of continuing the struggle for the fulfillment of King's dream. The crucial point here and elsewhere is that this is not a holiday for rest and frivo-Ft1day,....,., 13,2012 tlel'tQge Evening Gala at Straz Center fol' the Performing Arts featuring Black VIolin Sklte fol' Yo&l' Ufe Showcase and Saturday, Janulfy 2012 2-Day Heritage Street FestiVal 1hls riWktlnd /l)lflalti/IIJd 101/ liS III!IIIS "'11IC.W.

This is a day for study, struggle and preparation for the victory to come. It is a day set aside for measuring ourselves and America against the terrible yardstick of King's hope. And if we ever loved him, we will use this time to mobilize against the evils he identi fied in his last article -the evils of racism, militarism, unemployment, and vio lence. It is on this deep level, and in the context of personal responsibilities, that the King Holiday assumes its true meaning. For it is not enough to celebrate King: it is necessary also to vindicate him by letting his light shine in our own lives. It was King's genius to suggest that every man, woman, and child is respon sible for his/her own free dom. ''A man who won t die for something." He said Is not fit to live ."

Beyond all that, we are challenged in this month to remember one of his greatest legacies, hope. For he never gave up hope. He never ceased to believe that the Dream and the dreamers could prevail. And if he could speak to us this month from his living he would tell us that nothing can stop us here if we keep the faith of our fathers and mothers and. walk together and dream other. It is with this understanding, and this hope, tha,t we dedicate this day to the memory of an American giant wlio will be remembered, to appropriate the words of poet Robert E. Hayden, "not with statues bell ringings, rhetoric, and not with legends and poems and wreaths of bronze alone, but with the lives grown out of his life, the lives fleshing his dream of the beautiful, needful thing." 1 0-Day Celebration Herittlge G

On the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, King evoked the name of Lincoln in his "I Have a Dream" speech, which is credited with mobilizing supporters of desegregation and prompted the 1964 Civil Rights Act. I say to y ou today, m y friends even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is a dream deepl y rooted in the American dream. I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: "We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal." I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners Will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood. I have a dream that on e da y e ve n the state of Mississippi a state swel tering with the heat of injus tice s w eltering with the heat of oppression will be transformed into an oasis of and justice. I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they wi ll not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. I have a dream today. I have a dream that one day, down in Alabama, with its vi.eious racists with its governor having his lips pin the words ef sition and nullification; one d{ly rig t there in made straight, and the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together. This is our hope. This is the faith that I go back to the South with. With this faith we will be able to hew out of the mountain of despair a stone of hope. With this faith we will be able to transform the jangling discords of our nation into a beautiful symphony of brotherhood. With this faith we will be able to work together, to pray together, to struggle together, to go to jail together, to stand up for freedom together, knowing that we will be free one day This will be the day when all of God's children will be able to sing with a new meaning, "My coun-try, 'tis of thee, sweet land of. liberty, of thee Ising. Land where Let freedom ring from Lookout Mountain of Tennessee! Let freedom ring from every hill and molehill of Mississippi. From every mountainside, let freedom ring. And when this happens, when we allow freedom to ring, when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God's children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the of theold Negro spiritual, "Free at last! free at last! thank God Almighty, we are free at last!"

Black Outreach Is Kev To Pres. Obama's Re-Election Michael H. Cottman writes that it is imp e rative f o r President Barack Obama to court bl a ck v o t e rs in certain s t a t e s in ord e r to win re -election thi s year. H e a pp a rentl y is doing just that. Pres. Obama trav e led to Cleveland Ohio this w ee k and stopped by the home of William and Endia Eason, a n African-American couple who have been marri e d for 42 C years but ended up $8o,ooo in a: debt as a result of an unscrupuu.. lous mortgage broker. C Pres. Obama is starting 2012 on the right track. During > his first presidential trip this fiscal responsibility directly to a a: black family This year as in 2008, the W Pres. Obama re-election efC forts are inexplicably tied to black voter turnout in states en like Ohio where rallying African-American voter s is crit ical because a successful Black voter outreach could determine whether Pres. Obama is re elect e d to the Whit e House. Pres. Obama has been criti cized b y some black Democrat s for appearing aloof and not consistently engaging African Americ a ns. Only Pres. Obama can change this perception For th e pre sid e nt meeting with the Easons could go a long way toward firing up the black base in Ohio. The Obama campaign doesn't just want Black voters to trickle into voting booths in November; they would like to duplicate the euphoria and unprecedented black turnout from the 2008 campaign To accomplish this tall order, black folks will need to see Pres. Obama in their communities ; talk to him, to look him in the eye and shake his hand. :; Ill ll. z William Dalev Resignation Signals less Conciliatorv Pres. Barack Obama Wt-The departure of White ...J House Chief of Staff William ...J Daley is the latest sign President Obama is likely to take ...J a confrontational approach W with congressional Republicans over the next year z Pres. Obama, who anW nounced Monday Daley had en resigned and Budget Director Jacob Lew would take the (t helm at the White House, 0 brought in Daley last January as part of a group of changes designed to help the president court both Republicans and business groups who had op posed the president's policies in his first two years in office Daley is known as a more centrist Democrat than many of Pres. Obama' s advisers and was close to the business community from his time as a vice-chairman at JP Morgan But that effort to reduce partisan tensions largely failed over the last year as Re publicans have remain sharply opposed to President Obama's ideas. And over the last few months, Pres. Obama in turn has effectively stopped trying to work with them, pro posing a series of job creation ideas last fall that Republicans have long opposed and last week unilaterally appointing Richard Cordray as the new director of a federal consumer watchdog agency de spite the protestations of GOP leaders. Presidential News Tavis Smilev . Booted From MlKEvent TAVIS SMILEY Tavis Smiley, the PBS talk show hos t who has criticized President Barack Obama for not doing enough for the African-American community, says he was ousted as the speaker at a Martin Luther King luncheon because he was trying to hold the president countable. I don't see my role as one of criticizing the president. I see my role as one of holding the president this and every other president-accountable," Smiley said. "Something is wrong with this country ... that so often the political right, and I am no de fender of the political : right ... gets accused of playing the game of political correctness. What this underscores is that those on the left, the Democrats can play that game of political correct ness as well," he added. Smiley was booted from 2oth annual MLK luncheon ori Jan. 16 that is hosted by the Peoria Civic Center. The announced last week that ley had been replaced by Michael Eric D)rson as guest speB.ker of the event, citfug people were "upset about com ments that Tavis Smiley has made." "What's important to us is putting together a luncheon that celebrates the life and work of Dr. King," luncheon organizer Alma Brown said last week, according to a local report. "And it became evident over the last few days that people were upset about comments that Tavis Smiley had made. Comments that we weren't aware of unfor tunately, so we made the deci sion to cancel his contract." Rahm Emanuel savs He Has 'Great Relationship' With First ladv: (.) I N ,.... w (!) RAHM EMANUEL Disputes Claims In The Obamas' Book Mayor Rahm Emanuel briefly responded to reports of tension be tween himself, President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama during a pres s conference on the Southwest Side Sunday Emanuel, who was touting a $66o million school infrastructure proj ect, told report e rs that h e s till has a "great relationship with the Pres. Obama family, after a n e w book de sc ribed their relationship as di stant a nd awkward." "Th e Obamas, by Jodi Kantor of The N e w York Tim e s, is about the s train th e pre sid e nt' s fir s t few y ears in offi c e placed on his marriage. "I know what I know which i s th e truth, Emanuel told r e port e rs, according to the Chicago Sun Tim e s "And I'm v ery proud to hav e work e d for th e pr e sident and the first l ady, a nd Amy and I are v ery proud to call th e m frie nd s Black Fraternities Form Pres. Obama Super Pac Another factor making 2012 politically historic? It marks the first presidential election with super P ACs. Given free rein by a 2010 U.S. Supreme Court decision, super P ACs are independent committees al. lowed to raise and spend unlimited amounts of money to support, or skewer, a political candidate They're already shaping the election. After a pro-Romney super PAC, Restore Our Fu ture, spent nearly $3 million on attack ads in Iowa Newt Gingrich, his lead in the state swiftly plummeted. But a new pro-Pres. Obama super PAC, 1911 United, has a different strategy in mind: to mobilize an "army of Pres. Obama supporters." Backed by members of Kappa Alpha Psi and Omega Psi Phi, historically Black fra ternities that both celebrated their centennials last year, 1911 United aims to raise $1.5 mil lion toward training and or ganiZmg African-American voters in key battleground states to re-elect President Obama. Members of the two frater nities joined forces last year, officially forming the commit tee in December, after seeing that both organizations were running their own campaign volunteer-recruitment efforts at college homecoming events. "We were thinking about how we could really honor the legacy of those brothers who got together 100 years ago, and we thought perhaps the best thing we could do is help re elect our president, Sinclair Skinner, committee treasurer said. To achieve this goal, 1911 United plans to organize and deploy 10 ,000 volunteers to register at least 100 voters each and activate them to -hit the polls. The PAC is focusing its efforts in Florida, North Car olina, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana and Colorado. "When it comes to putting down dollars, energy and ef fort; these are the critical bat tleground states," said Skinner, 42. "We also chose states where the Black elec torate represents a percentage of the population that will make a difference in the elec tion's outcome if we don't come out. We're not fighting Republicans; we re fighting a pathy." Skinner, a mechanical en gineer who served as field di rector for former D.C. Mayor Adrian Fenty's first mayoral campaign, says that he understands criticism of super PACs in general, for allowing corpo rations to dominate the politi cal process. But he's unapologetic about forming one. Min Romnev savs He 'likes Firing People' -MITf ROMNEY. Mitt Romney has made the most glaring gaffe of his campaign to date, saying he "liked firing people just as op ponents have started rounding on him for the predatory na ture of the financial firm he ran for 14 years. The front-runner for theRepublican presidential nomina tion was closing in on victory in New Hampshire on Tuesda y night, but his prospects there and in future primary contests are now thre atened by an off the cuff remark made during an question and answer ses sion at a chamber of commerce breakfast meeting. In the course of an answer on how to bring down health care costs, Mr. Romney said he wanted individuals to buy their own health insurance, rather than have their com pany buy it for them. "That means the insurance company will have an incentiveto keep you healthy. It also means that if you don't like what they do, you could fire them. I like being able to fire people who provide services to me. You know, if someone isn t giving the good service, I want to say, I'm going to go get someone else to provide this service," he said. In its full context the quote may seem more benign, but as a sound bite it will provide powerful ammunition not only to any of his Republican oppo nents who choose to use it but, should he win the nomination, to President Barack Obama's campaign.
