"I didn't know vio lins could sound .like that, or even play a song that great." The members of Black Violin told the students how they came up the classical music ranks and admitted there were times in the early years they had to be forced to master their craft. BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel City Editor On Friday, at 1 p.m., public testimony will take place at the George Edgecomb Courthouse for the first hearing to examine the impact of the proposed changes in state voting laws. D. S. Senator Dick Durbin, a Democrat from Illinois, will lead the hearings of the U. S. Senate Judiciary Committee's Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights, and Human Rights. In November, U. S Senator Bill Nelson has asked the Justice Department to investigate whether new voting laws passed by Florida and more than a dozen other states this year are the result of a coordinated effort to suppress voter turnout among millions of seniors, young people and minorities in this year's presidential election. Senator Nelson asked the federal investigating body "to determine whether or not there was broadbased motivation to suppress the vote and, if so, whether any laws were vio-_, lated." In May, Florida Governor Rick Scott signed House Bill 1355 into law. The bill places stringent require-, ments on individuals and third-party groups who attempt to register new vot ers. Additionally, volunteers who register new voters must sign up with the state and submit the voter registration forms within 48 hours of obtaining the signatures. Those who do not comply face large fines or possibly prison for violating the rule. Volunteers are also required to sign an oath warning them of the consequences for violating the rules. The bill also shortens the period of early voting days from 14 days to 8 days. The new law also prohibits voters who have moved from the county to change their infor mation at the polls and vote. They must cast a provisional vote. The League of Women Voters and Rock the Vote have challenged the new law in court. State Rep. Dennis Baxley, -(R-Ocala), sponsored the bill. Rep. Betty Reed said, "Past generations fought hard in order to ensure our right to vote. res important that our community show up in numbers in order to con tinue the fight.'? Both Will B and Kev encouraged the students to seek mastery oftheir instru ments because it could pay off, and they should know. They both earned full college scholarships and now have the accolades to go along with all their perseverance. Rampello was selected for a visit by Black Violin because of its partnership with the Patel Conservatory.

.... Grandmother Doesn't Believe Police Investigate Teenager Shot Himself Residential Shooting On January 18th at 7:52 p.m., law enforcement cials received a 9-1-1 call from the grandmother of a teenager who had been shot Ms. Cheryl Neal said three friends of her grand son, Demarcus Smart, 17, ran to her home and told her he had shot himself in the head. Tampa Police reported that Smart had been in a va cant home with three friends playing with a gun. Smart was reportedly looking at the gun when he pulled the trig ger and shot himself in the head. He was pronounced dead at the scene. Police said the investiga tion is ongoing, but based on the evidence so far, the shooting appears to be acci dental, and the gun was in Smart's possession when it was fired. Ms. Neal said Smart had been in her custody until 2009, after entering the foster care system in 2004. "He was with me until 2009, when he went into fos-DEMARCUS SMART ter care for 2 years, then went to live with his other grand mother, Angie Lee, in Clearwater. "Demarcus was a good boy who really loved his mother. He always wanted to be with her, and was visiting her when this incident happened." Ms. Neal said Demarcus had told his mother he was going to the store when he left the house. "We don't know anything about the gun, and we don't believe he accidentally shot himself," said Ms. Neal. "I think there is more to it than what's been told. I don't know anything about the boys he was with." Ms Neal said Demarcus wasn't attending school, but had enrolled to get his GED. "Demarcus had a brother and two sisters, and really enjoyed playing video ,gg.mes, listening to music and dancing. He was a typical teenager who was very re spectftd to his family but also could be very stubbo"rn." A service will be held at Bible Based Fellowship of Temple Terrace this Satur day.

Earlier this month, you may recall, the United States Food and Drug Administration stopped all orange juice concentrates from being imported into America from Brazil. Having been alerted by an American orange juice processor that the concentrate he received had tested positive for a pesticide. However, since oranges and orange juice Concentrate from Brazil account for 11 percent of orange juice consumption here in America (and most certainly, here in TampaHillsborough County), the health of many of our citizens may be in danger. What makes us wonder about FDA's ability are comments by a growing number of sources that funding and staffing of the FDA allows it to inspect less than 3 percent of food coming into America. Now, considering that 90 percent of vitamins, 70 percent of apple juice, 43 percent of processed mushrooms, 22 percent of frozen spinach, 22 percent of fresh garlic, 40 percent of cod fish, and 78. I,Jercent of tilapia fish consumed by fellow Americans are imported, the threat of chemical adulteration by unsafe drug residue, pesticides, herbicides, and fungi--=t cides is past frightening.

Around the same time (1994), plans for a slavery museum surfaced here in Tampa, the National Mu seum of Liverpool (England) opened the Transatlantic Slavery Gallery, the first of its kind in the world. Expanding its collection, the International Slavery Museum (ISM) opened on August 23, 2007, which was also International Slavery Remembrance Day and the 2oolh anniversary of the abo lition of slavery in England. Within three years, more than a million visitors passed through th e mu se um Said to b e th e onl y mu se um o f i t s kind to l ook at as pects of h istorica l and cont empora r y s l ave ry, as w ell as, being an i n t e rn a tional hub for resources on human rights issues," many prominent Black Americans have visited and or lectured at the ISM. Among them: Harry Belafonte, Danny Professor Henry Louis Gates, Jr., Rev. Jesse L. Jackson, Sr., and Paul Robeson, Jr. The ISM counts among its American partners the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Cen. ter (Atlanta, Georgia), the New York Historical Society and the Smithsonian Na tional Museum of African American History and Cul ture (Washington, D. C.). If you are interested, you can become an ISM patron by either visiting its website, sub scribing to its quarterly e-newsletter or by following ISM on twitter, facebook, or its blog The ISM tells the story of the mass enslavement of Africans by Europeans and the resilience and survival against the odds spirit of the enslaved Africans. Interestingly, the ISM is located in Liverpool's Albert Dock in the center of the a World Heritage site just a few yards from the dry docks w h e re 18111 ceritury sla v e s hips were repaired. Th e ISM exhibits also address the permanent impact of slavery and the slave trade on Africa, South America, North Amer' ica, the Caribbean and Westem Europe. Along with changing ex hibits, the ISM contains three main permanent gal leries: Life hi West Africa; Enslavement and The Mid dle Passage; and The Legacy of Slavery The galleries focus on what West Africa was like before slavery, the brutality and trauma of slave voyages and plantation life for slaves, and the fight for freedom that continue as a result of racism and discrimination. The ICM houses historical artifacts, pictures, ship logs and manifests as well as other hnportant documents that chronicle the s,ooo or more voyages that trans ported approximately 1.5 million Africans to the Caribbean, South America, and North America.

Justice Depanment Approves School Board District Boundaries The Hillsborough County School Board recently received the U. S. Department of Justice approval for its revised sin gle-member voting district boundaries. The School Board unanimously approved the redrawn districts proposed in Alternative D on October 4, 2011, after holding 10 public meetings in conjunction with the Planning Commission and Supervisor of Elections. The public was able to view proposed maps, receive information about the districts, and provide feedback on the four alternatives to change School Board member voting dis tricts 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 Districts 6 and 7 are coun tywide, at-large districts. The School Board is required by Florida law to revise the single-member districts the year after each decennial census. The 2010 census revealed population shifts among the existing single-member districts. Those shifts resulted in a variation in population growth from one district to another, so boundaries were re-drawn to provide balance among the five districts. For more information on the revised School Board single-member voting dis tricts the revision process, or the report sent to the Department of Justice, go to sdhc.k12.fl.us, and look for "Board Redistricting" under "Important Links."
