HOLTON Sentinel City Editor _AS a young child in elementary school, one Tampa native knew that he wanted to be a newscaster. Brent Solomon pursued his dream and made it a reality .. However, Solomon said people would often ask when he would work in the local market. For those inquisitive minds, Solomon now has the answer He will become a temporary anchor for WFTS TV/ABC Action News next month. "In this business, you're required to move a lot, but you know that going in. It is a pleasure returning to my hometown and working with a station I grew up watching as a child," Solomon said. While other may shy away from public speaking, Solomon does not have that problem. He enjoys the exposure the field brings. A Tampa native, attended BRENT SOLOMON ...

When the new Blake High School opened, he enrolled and during his junior year, began writing the school column for the Florida Sentinel Bul-letin. The yom_1g man graduated in 1999, having the dis.;; tinction -qf being '9ne of the new" Blake Bigh School graduates.

CREWS Sentinel StaffWriter Jordan Young (Lil Brus) is an 8-year-old rap phenomenon who has been performing since he was 5. On January 291h, Lil Brus highlighted a release party to announce his latest single and to launch his Anti Bullying Campaign along with Team Crawford. Lil Brus's mother, Lesley Harris-Young, said her son's talent began to show it self when he was a year old. "He'd sit in his car seat, and really loved listening to T.I. What we discovered was when we would play music in the car and it wasn't T.I., he'd cry. As soon as we put T.I. on, he'd dance in his car LILBRUS seat. Mrs. Young said Lil Brus spent a lot of time around his older brother, who was writing music, and picked up on a lot. "We discovered Jordan had an extremely good mem ory when it came to music. "The joy of his life was when he actually got a chance to meet T.I., and later perform with him. "As far as the bullying is concerned, his father and I always made sure he was aware of bullying and what to do. He'd come home and tell us about incidents he'd seen at school. Because he was trained so well at home, we never were afraid for his safety. Kids need to be taught. how to deal with bullies. "We join him when he travels to do concerts, and he's pretty level headed for an 8-year-old." -1 c m (/) c '"'ring Confirms .. ,Voter c... z c: :::a < Fraud Was Excuse To ,. . . . 1\) w ..... Change Voting laws BYJOANNA TOKLEY SpeCial To The Sentinel During the field hearing Friday in Tampa on Florida's changes to election laws held by Democratic Senators Bill Nelson (Florida) and Dick Durbin (Illinois), voters heard testimony. by two Florida elections supervisors that convinced the hearing panel and onlookers that there was little to no voter fraud during previous elec tions. Elections Supervisors Michael Ertel (Seminole County) and Ann McFall (Volusia County) could not cite one instance in which voter fraud became an issue. During testimony from witnesses opposing voter law changes, at least five rea--. sons were given as to why the HB1355 law changes were considered "vote suppres-sion." The 48-hour limit to submit new voter registration forms does not take Friday or Monday holidays irito account. In addition, reducing the number of voting sites makes access for early voting difficult. Also, implementing the reduction in the number of early voting hours would in. crease the cost of elections because of need for paying overtime to employees required to work extra hours. The requirement that voters who have changed ad-., dresses and/ or names must r cast provisional ballots was the most disturbing, because c 40 to so percent of provi-sional ballots have been con-sidered to be invalid.

As of January 1, 2012, when you pre-..J pare your 2012 tax return next year, you'will no LL longer be able to deduct the cost ofyolir mortgage insur-ance. If you intend to buy a home, you will have to fork over fees on all new conventional and FHA gage loans. You will longer be able to deduct credits for home energy improvements and credits for building a new energy efficient home. No one who his or her federal tax returns will be able to deduct state arid local sales taxes. The net effeet of the 58 tax code benefits that Congress failed to renew beginning 2012 could result in an increase in annual income anywhere from $2,000 to as high as $1o,ooo or more. Who was it who said no new taxes? "Bamboozled" would be a good word, though "duped" would also do for the many of us who thought Congress had our financial backs. Indeed, it seems they did have our backs, pushed to the wall. How else might anyone explain.Congress' opposition to practically any legislation that promised to help middle class Americans while quietly initiating tax increases on the sly? "':t Obviously, someone wants very much to change the w charter of America And if American voters don't wake e,:, up, we may find ourselves back. in original public hous'-ing, better known as slave plantations. Tuskegee Airmen And Red Tails, The MoVie: The uold Storv I f you get the opportunity, please go see the movie Red Tails, now show ing in local theatres. The movie tells a significant amount of the history of the Tuskegee Airmen's 99th Pur suit Squadron and their con tribution to helping America win World War II. By now, I'm sure most of you know that the Tuskegee Airmen were 300+ Black men who were trained to maintain and fly military aircraft at Tuskegee Institute and who flew bombing missions over Europe, France and Italy dur ing World War II. However, the movie doesn't tell you how the Tuskegee Airmen story began. What the movie Red Tails doesn't tell you is that accord ing to the Negro Almanac, the Tuskegee Airmen came into being as a result of the action of a young Black air cadet by the name of Yancy Williams. During the beginning of World War II, most Black Americans rallied to our na tion's side, endorsed the war effort and sought to make a contribution to the nation's war efforts, in spite of segre gation, discrimination, big otry, and racism that existed within America as well as in the military at that time. In the case of air cadet Yancy Williams, his en dorsement of the war in cluded a "fearless insistence of the rights of Black airmen -to join the Air Force as fighter pilots, -not merely ground jockeys or maintenance per sonnel." Yancy Williams, a grad uate of Howard University, threatened to file a lawsuit against the United States Air Force. Pressure from Black Civil Rights and labor leaders as well as adverse newS cover age in Black newspapers caused the Air Force to quic}4y open a Jim Crow training facility at Tuskegee Institute in 1941. Thus, the 99th Pursuit Squadron was born. When we mention Tuskegee Airmen, they in cluded pilots; naVigators, in structors, bombardiers, maintenance, and support staff who helped keep the planes in the air. They became one of the most highly respected fighter groups of World War II. A group of pilots from this unit won a Top Gun competition in 1949, but were not recog nized for the win until l995 The first Black jet fighter pilot and the first Black air craft mechanic certified and assigned to work on jets were members of the 99th Squadron. Of all of the segregated Army, Navy; and other mili tary forces, "the 99th Pursuit Squadron remains the most glamorous Black unit associ ated With World War II." Commanded by Colonel Benjamin 0. Davis, Jr., this unit flew over 500 combat missions and more than 3,000 sorties (attacks on indi vidual enemy planes) against the Germans by the summer of 1944. After being attached to the 332nd Fighter Group, the unit's record became even more impressive. By the spring of 1944, the Tuskegee Airmen had com pleted nearly 1,600 combat missions and more than 15,000 sorties. In addition, the unit destroyed German Messerschmitt fighters in the air and on the ground. In deed, this elite group terror ized enemy shipping vessels, as well as played the role of roving marauders. Two Tuskegee Airmen many of you might remember for their volunteer service to the Tampa community were Henry Bohler and Jean Esquerre, now deceased. Several retired Tuskegee airmen in the Tampa, Sara sota, and St. Petersburg area continue to make guest ap pearances and presentations to schools and local events. So. if you go to see the movie, make sure you take your children, grandchildren or some other youth to see the inovie with you. Each of you will see a great and inspiring history lesson. Harambee.
