John Conyers said, 'The loudest sound that anyone will ever hear in a Democratic society is the voice of a voter in an election.' I love that quote and I believe this new law will mute the voices of the voter, especially African Americans," Dr. Brenda Walker, Counsel for the Hillsborough County Branch of the NAACP said. Dr. Walker further stated that she hopes the hear-DR. BRENDA WALKER Counsel for the Hillsborough County Branch NAACP ings will result in the new laws being repealed. She further said that her concerns were personally as well as profes sional. "The concerns I have are that these laws really return us to the PreVoting Rights Act of 1965, and it's an attack on Civil Rights." She said the alleged ration ale behind the laws is to re duce voter fraud. 'Tm hoping the law will be repealed. It is morally and eth ically imperative that it be re pealed.'

, Features ::u local-law Enforcement savs 'Drop Scam' Is Growing BY LEON B. CREWS Sentinel Staff Writer Detective Sal Augeri with the Tampa Police Department's Criminal Intelli gence Bureau, said the "Drop Scam" criminal network is growing, and without the proper resources, they aren't going to _be able to slow it down. Augeri said according to information they've received, the scam artists recently col lected on two big paydays, and they are gearing up in ex pectations of even more. bigger this year than last year," said Augeri. "I've gotten a lot of reports this year, and ledgers have been confiscated and arrests have been made. It's shocking the amount of fraud that's going on." Augeri said there's just not enough manpower to handle the growth of the scam, and they also need to know what's being done in a federal to deal with the problem. "I personally don't see this problem being solved anytime soon. Now, they are having tax dollars dumped on Capital One cards and through direct deposit. What we're seeing here in Tampa is happening all over the country." Augeri said the perpetrators are outfitting their homes with expensive furniture being purchased with the cards, thro\Ving lavish parties, and driving around in expen sive cars. "What's even more frustrating is a lot of the people getting the drop dollars are ruso getting federal assistance. That makes. it even harder. I had a list of at least 50 known drop suspects, and the major ity are getting other state and federal assistance. "Tlie government is the biggest loser when it comes to managing money, and what has made this scam so easy to perpetrate." Augeri said he has re ceived calls from people who want to assist them, but without the resources, there's nothing they can do. "The upcoming GOP con:vention will shrink our forces evep more. I also feel the city shouldn't have to foot the en tire bill for this investigation. It's all federal. In the next two months it's going to hit big." Kevin White's Request To Travel Denied On Wednesday, a federal judge rejected a request by convicted former County Commissioner, Kevin White, ;to fly to Kansas so he could retrieve his son's car and drive it back to Florida. White reportedly also sought permission to drive his daughter to a university in North Carolina. White is awaiting in March on federal bribery and corruption convictions. J. JACQUES A. DARIUS.

Its purpose is for the residents of Hillsborough County to meet Commissioner Miller and voice their concerns. "As a resident of District 3, I am honored and very proud to represent an area where I was born, went to school, raised a family, and continue to make my honie. "As I campaigned and lis tened to the people of District 3, they clearly communicated to me their concerns.

"The concerns plaguing East Tampa, West Tampa, Seminole Heights, Palm River, Suit-case City, Progress Village, 1\) Ybor City, East Lake, and all the other nooks and crannies 1\) of District 3 are similar, over lapping, and long overdue in needing immediate attention," he said. The forums allow Com .. miSsioner Miller to go to the people in an open forum, where they can ask and offer suggestions of mutUal concern "On the campaign trail, and when I was sworn in as your District 3 County Com missioner I promised to in:. volve the people in my decision-making process.

President Obama And The State 01 The Union Address 0 fall the statements he made during his most recent State of the Union address, perhaps President Barack Obama's most powerful comments were his first comments when he said, "For the first time in nine years, there are no Americans fighting in Iraq." He then said, "For the first time in two decades, Osama bin Laden is not a threat to this country." The audience roared. And so did the country. Along with an initially smug-mouthed and media representatives, no doubt, we teleVISion VIewers soon saw and became a part of repeated standing ovations for America's first African American president. Were we cheering because he was Black, or were we applauding in triumph when he said, "In the six months before I took office, we lost nearly four million -jobs. And we lost another four million before our policies were in full effect" [but when he said,] "In the last 22 months, businesses have created more than three -million jobs ... [and then pr'onounced,] "The state of our union is getting stronger, and we've come too far to turn back now?" We, on this editorial staff, doubt very seriously that President Obama's color had anything to do with o:ur positive response to his advice as to how we Americans should fix our beloved country. American Schizophrenia: Familv Values Versus Cain And Gingrich S ince it drew its first political breath, American government has been riddled with public sex scandals. Take for instance, America's first Secretary of the Treasury, Alexander Hamilton, who was rumored have had a love affair with married woman, Maria Reynolds. Imagination 01ily knows how many Capitol Hill backdoor scandals have escaped the public eye. And now, the GOP has taken center stage, it may not be the center stage it wants. If former I{epublican presidential candidate, Herman Cain had successfully seduced the women he was accused of harassing and had divorced his wife while she was on her sick bed in order to marry another woman then publicly admitted to it, do you think he would still be in the race for President of the United States? We doubt Herman Cain, who gave up on the race, could have stood the pain. However, his competitive colleague Newt Gingrich seems either to have no political ears to hear his detractors, or seemingly has a se-cret on somebody on Capitol Hill. -Call it different scenarios or whatever you like. We call it American Schizophrenia, a very twisted sense of right and wrong mixed with selective amnesia, which seems to have become an epidemic politically, these days. It affects personal values, most often. Consequently, Newt Gingrich, who politically reminds us of the Roman Emperor, Caligula, may well win the Republican presidential nomination. Could Cain have done the same? Was color a factor? Only we voters will decide. 1 Saw 'Red Tails' started to talk about Tampa Mayor Bob Buckhorn's decis i on not to give Gasparilla pirates the key to the City. And though I've never met the man, his spunk inspires me Did you hear what he told the chief pirate as to why he wasn't giving him the key to the City? Said Bobby, "It took me 20 years to get it, and I'm not giving it up!" Now, if that's not a brother ; I'll shine your shoes (provided they are Stacey Adams, of course). But I'm not going to talk about Bob Buckhorn, this go'round Instead I want to talk to you about something I did last weekend, which even today, right now, I remember as ifl had done it, three min ute s ago. I saw the movie Red Tails Have you seen it? What do y ou mean you don t watch movies? You watch cable, don t you? Get up off your rusty-dusty; go get that money you've been hiding under your mattress that you put there, last Christmas and -take yourself and someone ymi" love to see a movie about people who look like you and who did something to keep Adolf Hitler from coming over here to Tampa and call ing your mother a NEGRO! The movie Red Tail is a take-off on the real life stories of young men who would for all time be known as Tuskegee Airmen . who were part. of a so-called American military e x peri ment to see if Black men could learn how to fly mili tary aircraft, namely fighter planes Unlike a previous film, on the same subject, which fea tured -Laurence Fishburne, I must admit I didn't know most of the actors in Red Tails. Cuba Gooding, Jr., I knew. Terrence Howard, I knew. And a few others I rec ognized by face. But the re maining cast was one, which hip-hoppers no doubt woJild be quite familiar with Did that stop a n y of the actors from turning in Academy Award perfo r mance s ? Not on your life it didn t. But f or thos e o f you who still ha v e no idea what I'm talking a bout w he n I mention such names as Tuskegee Air men, Col. Benjamin 0. Davis, Jr., or the Ninety ninth Pursuit Squadron, let me mention several other names with which you might be mo r e familiar. ADOLF HITLER! Have you heard of him? WORLD_ WAR II! Are you familiar with that? Racism, discrimination, and second class citizenship! Do any of those words strike you familiar? Well, Red Tails is about alf of that. And by the way, there's a love-story in the middle of the movie too! What do you mean you want to know about the love story? Are there any se x scenes? Does it have a to who's the baby-daddy? I'm: not telling you! What I Will tell you is that the movie I saw last Saturday made me cry. A white woman who also ., 5 :::0 i en m z m r m c: r r z "D c: m c en ::::1: m c m < saw the movie saw me weep-m ing. She came over, put her arm around me, and we cried -t together. So, you think that's ffi funny! What if you had been en there and seen it for yourself? What if you had heard the roar of those souped up British Merlin engines as those sleek Mustang fighter :::0 planes flew through the heav-ens like silver gods of earth and sky? What if you had watched those young Black men do their thing and walk that-walk that all Brothers walk when they know what in the world they re doing? What if you had sat in that dark movie theater and be come part of history ... not just Black history ... sim ply American history, but world history? Then you, too, would have wept for the joy of knowing how great a human ity we have always been. And that includes us, too! Yes, I saw the movie Red Tails last week. And Mon day, I called the Hillsborough County School administra tion and suggested its history teachers direct their students to see the movie as part of i their Black History Experi-lil ence. You go, too. I'll be' you'll cry ,_

But, it was the caption under neath the photo that had my jaw dropping. The first two words said it all. "The Coons."

r resident's r a e BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel City Editor On Tuesday evening, President Barack Obama delivered his State of the Union Speech. During the speech, he talked about the positive changes that have occurred during his ad ministration, including the end of the war in Iraq. President Obama also talked about corporate taxes and rewarding companies who choose to remain on American soil. Some readers who listened to the Presi dent shared their comments about his speech. Howard Harris said, "The President finally dealt with the lie of the flat tax by saying that earned or in vested in come over $1 million should at 30%. The Republicans try to sell a flat tax on earned in come (income gained from work). Under a flat tax sys tem, the rich would pay no tax because their income is not earned, but comes from investments." Ms. Ann Jenkins said, "The President did a wonderful job on his State of the U n i o n speech. He covered the most important issues that needed to be covered, i.e. tax breaks for the rich and health care for the poor. "When we are out there campaigning, we need to make the people see what will happen if we allow the Republicans to keep those seats. We didn't vote and put the Tea Party in office, but the Republicans rely on them to make the decisions about this country. "African Americans, or Blacks, if that's what you want to be call, had better get out there and help the President win this election in 2012, by getting to the poll and vote The President needs your support." Ross Anderson said, "In the State of the Union address, President Obama said, "We can either settle for a country where a shrinking number of people do really well, while a grow-Readers Share Comments About State 01 The Union Speech c.. )> z c: )> ::0 -< 1\) 1\) 0 ing number of Americans barely get by, or we can restore an economy where every one gets a fair shot, everyone does their ROSS ANDERSON fair share and everyone plays by the same set of rules, a level playing field for everyone, or at least stop changing the rules when we start to become successful like the FCAT for our stu dents." Ms. Ann. Porter said, "The President seems to be in campaign mode for the 2012 elec tion. He laid out specific andmajor ac complishments over the past three years, and priorities for moving forward in fair ness for all our citizens were well emphasized. "The domestic and the global problems we face remain high in his plans. He appeared to be strong, intel ligent and well qualified to answer this calling." Dr. George Foxx said, "Overall, I was Im pressed by the President's speech last night. It is time for pol icymakers to work together on a biparti san basis to solve the chal lenges facing our nation. Even with our economy on an upward trajectory, there remain multiple economic and social problems to be tackled, all without simple -or partisan solutions. "The President's top pri orities are and should be jobs and the economy. A critical pathway to economic growth and job creation is increased engagement in in ternational markets, so we're encouraged by the Presi dent's attention to this issue last night." Danny Green said, "Last night, the President went to Congress and de fined in clear terms what we're going to be fighting for in the months ahead. The President will be busy doing everything he can to demand action from a Congress that cares more about making apolitical point, than govern ing. And, when they refuse to act, he will. Election year or DANNY GREEN not, that is his job, and he is going to be getting things done these next couple months." Ms. Tonya Lewis said, "President Obama's speech was uplifting. I feel confident that he will be President again. Considering 4 years ago, the President made promises of capturing Osama bin Laden and the with drawal of combat troops from Iraq. He did that. "Congress blocked a lot of his bills to make him look bad in the sight of the peo ple. Given another term, I believe President Obama would create more jobs, and bring manufacturing back to the United States, and create a better economy for work ing class Americans, and se curing our homeland." James Tokley said, "Someday, an enterpris ing com poser such as was Aaron Copland when he wrote The Lincoln Por trait, will inventory President Barack Obama's many speeches. And no doubt, the composer will stop to consider President Obama's third State of the Union address. For, the future composer will agree that President Obama's speech was nothing short of brilliant. It was not a defen sive speech. Instead, it was a de<;isive, explanatory, and visionary speech. "Only a deaf man, a prankster, or a fool could not have understood what our Commander-in-Chief did not mean to say, but said, that previous night in Wash ington, D. C. But, I wonder, how can the world be in such awe of a man who, in his own country is being touted as a do-nothing president? Perhaps, they or we are in different dimensions. "Yes, I saw, heard, and felt President Obama's speech. And I was glad I called history's bluff and voted for President Barack Obama. Keto Hodges said, "I enjoyed watching the recap of President Obam.a's speech. "As long as I am President, I will work with anyone in this chamber to build on this mo mentum. But I intend to fight obstruction with ac tion." "President Obama stressed moving forward but made it very clear that he will not be stonewalled by a Republican-influenced Con gress that has given him a number of negative votes on issues they have at times championed in order to attempt to make him look weak. "President Obama fi nally realizes what we al ready knew a GOP-run Congress will never work with him in good faith be cause they passionately hate what he stands for." Maurice Kemp said, "President Barack Obama's 2012 State of the Union address was well com posed, cov ered a number of important topics and was delivered with earnest and passion. "One line from his ad dress grabbed my attention the most, 'We can either set tle for a country where a shrinking number of people do really well, while a grow ing number of Americans barely get by, or we can re store an economy where everyone gets a fair shot, and everyone does their fair share, and everyone plays by the same set of rules.' "My personal concern is that too many people do not understand the importance of fairness and even more of them do not believe in the concept. "Our President did ask us to use our imagination to consider the recent achievements of the American Armed Forces: 'They're not consumed with personal ambition. They do not ob sess over their differences. They focus on the mission at hand. They work together.' Our President then asked, 'Imagine what we could ac complish if we followed their example.'" James Ransom said, "Yes I did see the Pres ident's State ofthe Union Address and in my opin ion, he stood tall and firm like the Rock of Gibraltar, which is one of the pillars of Hercules. "He spoke with strength and confidence. There was no ambiguity in the tone and tenor of his message. He was comfortable speaking truth to power. His vision was clear and unwavering. ...... 1\) "'T1 r-0 ::0 c )> en m z ::::! z m r-He spoke with dignity, fi nesse and respect, but he was unapologetic about his intensions to accomplish "'D goals and outcomes to im-5j prove the quality of life for rail Americans. en Ill c: r rm ::::! z "He reminded us all ffi about what he inherited C from the 43rd President and what he has accomplished in m spite of an unwilling and un-cooperative Congress.

"His performance to date shows that he is a leader by C example, which he proved to be again last night. He stood c up, now we need to stand-up and vote for him again!" Elder Charles Davis said, "The President was bril liant. I'm just so glad that he has a sense of morality, that he is compassionate for people who are not on the same economic level he is, and that he is a family man. As the first Black to serve as President of the United States, he is someone worthy of being emulated by our young people.

CREWS Sentinel StaffWriter The area of Tampa beginning at Fowler Avenue and stretching north to Bearss Avenue contains more apartment complexes than anywhere else in the city. Some of the complexes are well kept, while others are either rundown, or abandoned. One group of apartments formerly known as the Oaks Apartments and Pines 1, are now Oak Gardens The apartments, just off Fowler Avenue on 15th Street and 14th Street are now fully renovated two bedroom units. The complexes feature three buildings, each one painted its own color. When you include great, new landscap ing, you have something that everyone can be proud to call home. But, Jeremy Griffin said that's only half the package. Griffin, who manages the complexes, said if you are one of those people who have moved to get away from the nonsense, only to find you haven't, you need to come by and see the changes at Oak Gardens. "If you are tired of moving, Oak Gardens is the place fQEi:J you to come to. If you are tired of the noise, drugs, and all the drama, Oak Gardens will give you that peace and safety you thought didn't exist in the University area." In each apartment; you will find new tile, appliances, paint, and on the outside you will find new exterior light ing, landscaping, and new air OAK GARDENS "Past" OAKQARDENS "Present" conditioning units. The apartments are on the bus line, and a short walking distance from Fowler Avenue. Washer and dryer hookups are located in the storage room in the back of each apartment, and the perimeter is fenced in with security cameras on the grounds. "Any attempt to create quiet and safe communities is a challenge these days," said Griffin. "But, from being completely honest at the first customer contact, the goals of Oak Gardens are known from the start. Those who value quiet, safe and respectful properties are thrilled. Those that think it might not be a good match for them, quickly decide to try someplace else." Griffin said in these eco nomic times, it is good to see people who still have a posi tive, hopeful view of Tampa. "Hope and optimism is what has gotten us all through tough times in the past, and. will surely be the key to moving the area. for ward in the future."

4125 Nassau Street W Tampa. F l orida 33607(813)875-9077 ICCUPV Tampa Group Held March, Rallv In Old West Tampa REV. CHARLES MCKENZIE, JR. BY LEON B. Sentinel StaffWriter On Saturday, January 21st, representatives from Occupy Tampa met with representatives from the Old West Tampa community for a rally and march. The rally and march were held in an effort to let the residents of West Tampa know what Occupy Tampa was all about, and what role they were playing in addressing the problems in community. Occupy Tampa representa tive, Shawn Samuels, said he thinks the rally and march went well. "I wish more people from the community would have come out and joined us. Overall, I think the rally, and ones planned for the future, will help make the community aware of laws that will affect them in the future, and what they can do to speak out against or for the laws. "It's also important that the people of Old West Tampa know that although we are there as an anti-poli tical group, we are also concerned about what's happening in their community and we are willing to do whatever we can to bring justice to the people City Councilman Frarik Reddick said he met with the representatives and they talked about their concerns. "I told them who I was and made my office available to them whenever they need help." West Tampa Development Manager, Michael Randolph, said he was happy that the event brought two groups together so they could dialogue. "I was disappointed over the lack of media coverage for the event. I'm looking forward to the next march in February. I do think we got the attention of the people, From left to right: Shawn Samuels, Dwight Bolden, and Keith. and they know we're trying to make things better for them. "We both reached out to each other, and identified what direction both organi zations need to go. I got the opportunity to talk to a lot of people with Occupy Tampa, and got several different perspectives. I was happy Rev. McKenzie was at the meeting." Randolph said he thinks there needs to be a clear de legation of responsibilities on who is to do what, because there is no clear leader with the group. Dwight Bolden, who was one of the first to open a dialogue with the Occupy Tampa group, said he felt the ma.rch and rally were beautiful. "We went through the community, and drew the attention of a lot of people. Rev. McKenzie gave a very inspiring speech, and his message went over well. "It seems 2012 has become the new 1960s fight for rights. I was happy that the march consisted of people of all colors and religious sec-tors. We're all seeking the same things." Rev. Charles McKenzie, Jr., who is a state rep resentative of the Rainbow Coalition, said he was pleased to see people from other organizations at the rally. "I think everything went well. The level of energy is refreshing that these young people are expressing. This is the same energy the young people displayed during the sit-ins and other demonstra tions of the 1960s. "I do feel progress was made in connecting them with the people of Old West Tampa. I think the bonding affect is that they are dealing with some of the same pro blems people in the commu nity are dealing with. We've learned well how to be tolerate and accepting of peo ple." Rev. McKenzie said he would like to see Occupy Tampa continue to integrate themselves with the people in Old West Tampa, and continue to strive for the ideals and changes that will benefit everyone.

The park is also the home of the Gwendolyn M. Miller Community Center. An After-School Activity Program is included among its activities geared toward youth and adults who utilize the facility.

Holes 13, 14 and 15 are the stretch of holes that should be named after Mr. Andrews. Water and bushes make all three of these holes challeng ing It would be a fitting and well-deserved honor.

They add to this by anticipating a foul that never occurs. Finally, so many officials are out of shape and unable to keep up with the fast pace of a basketball game.

:!:! God wants His people to lis-Many people write songs about an experience or to express a feeling regarding some event in life. Some songs will be songs of cheer and some will be songs of sorrow. No matter what life brings there can be a song. If you were to write a song about your life's experience what kind of song would it be? The Israelites Wrote a song to God after He delivered them from Egypt. Exodus 15:1-5, 19-26 captures the l y rics of the song and events surrounding it. In their song the y acknowledge the awesomeness of God (vs. 1). When you write the song of y our life it must be mentioned that God is great and awesome. God is to be exalted above everyone! They tell of the deliverance of God and state that they will praise Him (vs. 2). We are saved and delivered because of the work of God. You are where you are because God looked down on you and came to bring you out of what had you in bondage. That is reason enough to praise God. Their song tells of the actions God performed to deliver them (vs. 3-5). Go. d had to fight for you for you to be delivered. The enemy of your life did not want to let you go, but God fought for you. They sing that not only did God deliv er them from the enemy but He also destroyed the enemy. God will destroy your enemy. Destruction may not be that your enemies die, but God makes it so that they will not or cannot cause problems for you in your life. The reason you are not dealing with some of the enemies of your past is because God is keeping them from you. He has taken away their access to MOUNT PLEASANT M. B. CHURCH 2002 N.

Sometimes the journey or path God takes you on will lead you to a deserted place There will be times in your life when you can't find any thing to satisfy your thirst. To deliver you from the things of your past, you may have to go through a time of drought. When they did find water they could not drink it because it was bitter (vs. 23). In your life you may come to a place when stuff is bitter. After a drought in your life and you begin to live again things may taste bitter. It may be difficult for you to trust again because it is bitter. After having heart break loving someone may be bitter. Just as for the Israelites, God is able to take that which is bitter and make it sweet (vs. 25). Too often people want to abandon what they have or throw something away because of how it tastes.

Geninu A lower Private Monuaue Insurance Rate Private mortgage insurance is a reality that is hard to escape, especially for first time home buyers. If you do have to take on PMI, make sure you get the best rate possible. Lenders should be able to provide you with different private mortgage insurance rates from which to choose. Make sure you shop for PMI like you shopped for your mortgage. You can learn a lot about a lender's PMI options during Supreme Coon Of The State Of Florida Heard Druulaw Argument In September of 2011, the Second District Court of Appeal issued an order asking the Florida Supreme Court immediately to resolve an issue that has sprung up in courtrooms statewide in recent months: whether Florida' s Drug Abuse Prevention and Control law violates the due process clause of the U S Constitution' s 14th Amendment. Argument was heard before the State of Florida' s top court in December. A ruling is expected soon. If the Supreme Court of the States of Florida rules in favor of the statute then nuth ing will change. If it strikes it down? It will amount to earth shattering change in the law. A seismic shift in the platonic plates of criminal court. Such a ruling would likely overturn thousands of convictions and exonerate hundreds if not thou sands of people recentl y charged with drug crimes. Over the last three decades only about a dozen times has an appellate court an issue so important that it sent the case directly to the Supreme Court of the State of Florida and requested an immediate ruling. EITC Up To The Second District Court of Appeal determined this was one of those times: "Until this important constitutional question is resolved by the Florida Supreme Court, pros ecutions for drug offenses will be subject to great uncertainty throughout Florida. The appellate court opinion con tinued to read. "It will be dif ficult to reach a final resolution in many of these cases until the issue is resolved. Under the statute, which was created by the Florida Legislature in 2002, defendants can be convicted of a felony merely by possessing an illegal drug regardless of what they meant to do with it or if they even knew what they had was illegal. At least three Florida judges one in federal court in the Orlando Division and two at the Circuit level in Miami and Bradenton recentl y ruled that the law was invalid In almost every case brought before circuit courts prosecutors have argued that judges must. rule that the statute is valid because two district courts of appeal, including the Second District Court of Appeal, previousl y determined that the law is constitutional. $5 ,751 w i th 3+ qualifyi n g childr en $5 112 w i th 2 qualify i ng chi ldre n $3 094 w it h 1 qua l i fy i ng chi ld $ 4 6 4 w i th no qualifyi n g c h ildren No Up Front Fees Tax Prep For Se lfEmployed Electron i c Filing Friend Serv i ce I Best Fees Gfoxx 3 699@aol.co m MOt> Walk Ins & Appointments We lcome Don t Get Cau ht U W ith T he Dram a the mortgage applicatio n p rocess.

Until a higher court rules in opposition lower courts must stay the legal course This is called legally binding prece dent. Regardless of how the Supreme Court of Florida rules one can expect the issue will not be settled. This matter will eventually make its way to the Supreme Court of the United States of America.

Basic Maintenance For Your AII_About Viruses PART II So, how can you avoid this menace? The answer is sim-L pie, install anti-virus software The good news is that there are several free anti-virus soft ware options available that are just as effective, or more ; than the paid-for versions In fact, I like the free ver sions more than the paid-for versions because the paid-for versions have all adopted a subscription model and stop protecting the day the sub scription expires, leaving you vulnerable to infection. And believe me when I say, if you're not protected and you are using the Internet, you already have a virus. My favorite anti-virus soft ware programs are Microsoft Security Essentials Cwww> microsoft com/security esse ntials), and AVG Free AntiVirus (http: 1/free.avg. com/us-en/homepage). Both are capable of protecting your computer and both are free to download over the Internet The Microsoft ver s ion gets my top honor because once installed it virtually takes care of itself by downloading updates and running periodic scans, but other versions are also effective Ok, so what about when you've already been infected? Don t feel bad; ev _en yours truly gets infected time to time The first line of defense is to update y our virus protection and run a full scan of your computer If that does not work or your virus protec tion has been disabled a very capable "do it yourself' tool is called MalWareBytes (www.malwarebytes corg). It is a free malware (viruses included) eradication tool that can be run in all versions of Windows to eliminate viruses. After that if you still have a problem you ll probably need to seek professional help. If you contact me I'll be willing 0 to provide you with some sug-::!! gestions, but will only warn C you to be careful in choosing )> who Will work on your com-puter, especially if choosing Z one of the office supply stores. :::i In some cases it is easier and quicker for a vendor to re-rinstall your computer rather m than to eradicate the virus In ? such cases, you will lose your rpersonal file s and find that all !!I of your programs and z favorites will have been "'tt r emoved when your computer C: is returned. Hope this was helpful. I (i; can be reached via email at :::t RSmith@computermentors-.&rg for additional assistance. Ralph The Computer Guy.

Texana Hollis was evicted Sept. 12 and her belongings placed outside after her 65-year-old son failed to pay property taxes linked to a reverse mortgage and the U. S.

Santorum: Obama's A.

Obama an "avowed Muslim" who has no legal right to call himself president. The woman made the statement during a Santorum event in Lady Lake, FL, Santorum took a question from an unidentified woman who said, "I never refer to Pres. Obama as president because legally he is not, and well, he constantly says that our constitution is passe, and he totally ignores it. As you know, he does what he darn well pleases He is an avowed Muslim, and my question is why isn't some thing being done to get him out of our government. He has no legal right to be calling himself president. Santorum did not correct the woman who brought up Republican presidential candidate, former U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum. this false daim. Instead, he respo_nded that indeed, he was trying to get Pres. Obama out ofgovernment. When asked by a reporter why he didn't correct the woman for calling President Obama a Muslim, Senator Santorum said, "Why do you guys ask these gotcha questions like it's my job to go out and correct who says something I don't agree with?
