Heart Surgerv BY LEON B. CREWS Sentinel StaffWriter Prior to 1997, Loretta Saunders was a healthy, vibrant woman working as a toll booth collectorfor the county. But, she had started experienc ing some weight loss, and after a visit with her doctor, she was told she needed bypass surgery for congestive heart failure. "I had the surgery, and was in good health until 2009 when I had to get a fibulator put in my chest, because my heart rate was so low. "Frorri 1997 until 2009, I was taking medication and vis iting my doctor regularly. In 2010 I was rushed to the hos pital, and told at first I needed a heart transplant. Now that lETIER OF CONCERN: LORETTA SAUNDERS I'm having trouble walking, they have recommended an other device." Ms. Saunders said the problem is her Medicaid/Medicare won't pay for the surgery, because she's on a share cost plan. I've been told I need to raise betwe .en $2,500 and $5,000 for the surgery. My doctors are upset, because they feel Medicaid/Medicare should cover everything." Ms. Saunder:s said she 's no longer able to work, is con stantly taking and seeing a doctor every week. She said she's also been told the surgery is a must if she wants to live.

features Citv Council Approves Purchase Of House For Roundabout City Council approved the purchase of this house at $37,000 above its appraised value. On Thursday, the Tampa City Council, in a 4-3 vote, ap proved the purchase of a house as part of the 22nd Street Enhancement Project. The purchase of the house is necessary for the roundabout part of the project, that still has not been approved. Council members took weeks to decide on whether to approve the purchase, be cause the owner was asking for $65,000, $37,000 above its $28,000 appraised value. However, with East Tampa Tax Increment Finance (TIF) dollars being used to cover $28;ooo of the purchase, Council approved the city's $37,000 portion, plus $3,000 in closing costs. Among the arguments by some Council members was where the $37,000 was coming from for the purchase. However, according to the city attorney, the funds had already been appropriated by previous Council members, and had been set aside as a part of the expenditure for the enhancement project. Council members opposing the purchase were Mary Mulhern, Harry Cohen, and Lisa Montileone, who all felt it was wrong to pay anyone above the appraised value for any property. Co.uncilwoman Lisa Montileone said she's concerned that a precedent has been set for others to ask the city to purchase property above its appraised value. NTINEL ENTIN To Be Printed FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 11th Deadline: MONDAY, FI:BRUARY 5th P.M. NG Father 01 Two Found Shot To Death ::u 6 m m ::u c: )> Tampa Police Homicide Detectives are investigating the death of a 19-year-old man found shot to death early Monday morning. N kill himselfi> He wasn't upset or depressed about anything, N so he. didn't have a reason for taking his own life. I worried about my son, and I stayed According to reports, Trey Anglin was found at 4:20a.m. sitting in a car in the driveway of his home with a bullet wound to the head. He was pronounced dead at the scene. Homicide detectives have ruled Anglin's death as un explainea, but did say an eye witness told them he shot himself. Anglin's mother, Marva Anglin, said what the police have told them, and what the witness told them doesn't make any sense. "I was sitting in my office in the front of the house with the shades pulled back all night long, and I never heard a gunshot. No one else in the neighborhood heard a gun shot, so what the witness said doesn't make any sense." Ms. Anglin said Trey was with a white female who had picked him up from a house down the street. She was in the car with him when he was shot, and said she and Trey had been sitting in the driveway since around mid night talking. TREY ANGLIN "First of all, none of my neighbors saw a car sitting in the yard, and I was looking out of the window during the time she said they were there,. and I didn't see a car in the driveway. "We know Trey, and he never sits in a car with a girl and just talk. That's just not his way. He'll either get out of the car, or talk with the door open and a foot outside." Ms. Anglin said the gun found in the car did belong to her son, bu:t he's right handed, and the gun was found under his left arm and pointed in the wrong direc tion for someone who had just shot himself. "We have so many ques tions," said Ms. Anglin. "Why didn't she try to stop him if he was trying to up until he came home. That's how I know they weren't in the driveway when she said they were." Ms. Anglin said she be lieves her son was shot some where else and driven back to the house by the girl. Trey Anglin was the father of two girls and talked all the time about returning to school. Family members said he even talked about beCOII!ing an attorney, because he was concerned about what was going on around him. Anglin has three sisters, and all of them said he was a playful person who loved playing with kids, listening to music, but most of all, he loved to cook. "He also loved to eat," said Ms. Anglin. "We all looked forward to him cooking breakfast for us, especially after he and his sisters had been out party ing." Ray Williams Funeral Home is assisting the family with arrangements, and they would appreciate: any help they can get from the com munity.

Harris. During his career in the ical fiel'd, he has remained on the cutting edge of technology. For the past seven years, Dr. Harris. has been em ployed at the James A. Haley Veteran's Hospital. He cur rently serves as the Chief of Gynecology and is the first African American to serve in this capacity. He began work ing at the hospital in 2004 when the Gynecology Depart ment was established as a part time department. Dr. Harris said, "When I arrived in Tampa I was em braced b y Dr. Freddie Smith, Dr. William Andrews, and Dr. Andrew Jackson. They welcomed me with open arms and were very h e lpful." Other doctors were per forming surgeries and deliver ing babies, but Dr. Harris became the first African Amer ican, Board Certified physician in Tampa when he arrived in 1982. That same year, he in troduced the concept of outpatient surgery at St. Joseph's Hospital. He also used the method of removing multiple tumors without performing a hys terectomy and taught several DR. WILL HARRIS Chief of Gynecology Deparbnent, James Haley Veteran's Hospital other physicians the. proce dure as well. "Many times, the patient couldn't function and a hysterec tomy was the only op tion the patient had," Dr. Harris said. Remaining abreast of the latest technology, in 1986, Dr. Harris performed the first successful test tube baby pro cedure in the State of Florida. Dr. Harris opened a pri va te practice and served the community for 22 years. "When I came to Tampa, I went to several banks and they wouldn't give me a loan. They suggested that I join a group. Finally, I went to the Sun Trust Bank on South Dale Mabry and presented my entire prospective to a grey-haired gentleman who was a Senior Vice President. "He allowed me to get the funds to start my practice This community really, really embraced my practice includ ing doctors' wives, nurses, and labor ers of all color spectrums. It was a great time," he said. A native of Williston, Florida, Dr. Harris attended Florida A & M University for his undergraduate studies and the University of Florida Med ical School. He trained at Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas, Texas, the University of West Virginia, and completed his Residency at Louisiana State University, Charity Hospital, in New Orleans.

Kennedy Blvd. in downtown Tampa. This year's program theme is "Your Health-Our History" and will pay tribute to the many pio neers from the African American community that provided years of health care services to Tampa Bay. One pioneer being recognized is Clara Frye, an African-American nurse who ran the Clara Frye Hospital for 20 years in the early 1900s A pavilion at Tampa General Hospital is named for her. A second pioneer is Dr. Reche Williams, who was the first African-American to perform major surgery in Tampa in 1921 at the Clara Frye Hospital. Williams Middle Magnet School is named in his honor. County Administrator Mike Merrill will present the 2012 Legacy Award to Gail P. Williams, who retired in 2009 as the County's Equal Opportunity Administrator after a 31-year career in public service. Ms. Williams helped the County Attorney's office draft the County's first comprehensive Human Rights Ordinance The Legacy Award recognizes former County employees who have made a significant contribution to County government and the community. Entertainment will be provided by international gospel recording artist Dana Mackey.

"The procedure allows faster recovery, it calls for smaller in cisions, and it allows the physician to see if there are any other problems It reduces the time a patient is hospital ized and in many cases, the patient can go home the same day," Dr. Commedore said. Eventually, Dr. Commedore established his own practice and treated patients for several years. He closed his practice to accept the position as the Director of the Office of Minority Health where he served for two years. Now, he works with the Physicians Net work to ensure that doctors have more representation in healthcare. Throughout the years, Dr. Commedore and Dr. Harris have performed countless surgeries. In some instances, women were able to conceive and give birth because the productive organs were spared. Today, the two doctors have become partners again. Dr. Commedore is a part time Gynecologist at the Uni versity of South Florida and responds to emergency room calls. He also assists Dr. Harris, who is the Chief of the Gynecology Department of Veterans Affairs at the James A. Haley Veteran's Hospital. A native of New Orleans, Dr. Commedore completed his undergraduate studies at Vassar College and the Univer sity of New Orleans, earning his degree in Chemistry. Dr. Commedore gradu ated in 1981 from Louisiana State University, School of Medicine, and completed his Residency at Charity Hospital and Tulane University Medical School, both located in New Orleans, Louisiana. *ALL PRO REFERRAL* "WHERE THE PROS ARE"

A Fox Is Caught In The Henhouse Abraham Lincoln would not be pleased. Neither thousands of Floridians who, throughout this state's history, have put their lives in danger or have given their lives to be able to exercise the inalienable right to vote for the representative of their choice. But just recently, for all to see, one of this state's most blatant examples of voter disenfranchisement was caught in the spotlight like a roach with the lights turned on. Two elections supervisors, National Bar Association and LULAC officials, a student government president and a former Secretary of State testified that accusations of voter fraud, which was used as a reason for emasculating the democratic process of voter registration was itself a fraud Volusia County elections supervisor, Ann McFall told the committee .the story of a school teacher who was disciplined because she missed the 48 hour deadline for submitting the voter registration forms of her 12th grade students. Then Vietnam War veteran and former Secretary of State, Bruce Smathers, who implemented voter reform during the 1970's, said the new laws are designed" to punish Democratic voters" and are "voting eroding and suppression" legislation. We listened to the proceedings regarding the newly proposed state laws which will limit new voter registration and will frustrate voters who relocate to a new ad. dress. What we heard and saw reminded us bitterly of what we witnessed more than 40 years ago when clever racists. did everything they could do to stop Black folks in the state of Florida from voting. And now, the fox is back. But this time, we are guarding the henhouse. I Gov. Scon Is No Dr. Martin Luther King I So much has happened lately, that what we plead to talk to you about gets lost in our archives. But this one, this time, was too precious to let go. Just in case you missed it, before Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s birthday, Florida's Lieutenant Governor, our very own Jennifer Carroll made a very remarkable statement. She said, "On Monday, we're going to be celebrating Dr. Martin Luther King's birthday.'' And then she said, "And I can't think of anybody currently in my life right now that more epitomizes the values and vision of Dr. King than Governor Rick Scott." We're not through. Said Lieutenant Governor Carroll about her hero Governor Scott, "He looked at the content of my character ... in.. work ethic, and what I brought to the table. This is the dream of Dr. King that was realized for me." They, who heard her words first-hand, insist that what followed sounded not like a sob, but sounded like a nervous gulp from a big drink of water. Most certainly, Ms. Carroll should get out more often if our dear Governor Scott is the closest person she can find to "epitomize". the life and vision of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. No disrespect, but we doubt if Dr. King would have turned his back on millions of federal dollars that could have put thousands of Floridians back to work and would have provided health insurance for poor children, or would have cut education funds for all of Florida's children. And we know Dr. King would not have supported eroding and suppressing Floridians' voting rights. Excuse us, Lt. Gov. Carroll. But we beg to differ regarding your comparison between Governor Scott and Dr. King. What you saw was not a dream. It was a nightmare. How well are teachers teaching? Check the results of standardized tests. How well are the schools educating students? Check the results of the stan dardized tests The moral of this story is that education in a nutshell boils down today to dardized tests. I can remember a school that taught a person to pass a standardized real estate test in a weekend. The per son could pass the test, but not be able to do a closing statement. Likewise, I can remember an insurance school that could teach a person to pass a standardized insurance test. The person could pass the test, but couldn't put together an insurance program for a business. Standardized tests in the schools present the same problem. Students are taught to pass the test, but they make poor grades on their class work. Standardized tests don't allow for stu dents who enter the third and fourth grade levels below their assigned grade and advance one or two grade levels. Even though the student advances at least one grade level in education, the teacher and the school are rated as failures if the student doesn't pass the tests. I ask you, is this fair? Is this right? The standardized tests completely disregard class participation, class test scores; homework and spe-The Problem With Transparency I There's a difference be tween transparency and invisibility. Take for instance, the Tralfamadoreans, space aliens created by novelist Kurt Vonnegut, who were able to read books in one glance from top-to-bottom. They were able to accom plish such a feat because the books were transparent. In other words, to see the first page was immediately like seeing the last page, all at once! Imagine that. Now, imagine the most re cent Republican presidential candidates and their non stop (is that the same as series of bates getting ready to do battle with incumbent President Barack Obama. Would they, could they not consider themselves "transparent," or would "worn-out" be a better syn onym to represent this gag gle of Republican pugilists? Ask yourselves, according to the definition of transpar ent, which means "free from pretense, or deceit, frank, obvious, clear, and easily de tected or seen through, and which is also synonymous with "gauzy, glassy, candid, forthright, direct, straight forward," and an army of other words, which seem to mean, "in all situations, you can trust him or her," does the word refer? Reviewing the flotilla of terms regarding transparency, I found myself won dering, "Have any of the Republican prexy candidates I've seen daily come close to a positive comparison with any of these terms?" What? Could Herman Cain have withstood the stress of being transparent? Regard less of whether I liked his pizza or not, I don't think so. So, what about the other front-runners? What about Mitt Romney with his mil lions? After seeing what a man with countless millions can do in a political footrace (f'm referring to current Florida Governor Rick Scott), plus knowing just a little bit about Romney's religious background (for years, Mormons believed Black folks were not wei come in Heaven), whenever I compare Mitt Romney with transparency, I break out in hives. And then there's Newt Gingrich whose face like baby-fat, life-like-Nero's or Caligula's, and whose intel lectual comprehensiveness is so frightening (he reminds me of Sherlock Holmes's nemesis Dr. Moriarity) it sends shivers up my spine. r en But would I dare grant Gin-grich the halo of being ::I transparent? What with his three wives, countless trysts r on Capitol Hill desks, and his personal to F William Star 'g) Trek captain James Z Tiberius Kirk? E-gad, do 1 -"0 dare??? ffi Perhaps, the term "invisi-C en ble" would be : a more fitting :::1: choice for our current GOP-wannabes. Notice how the word is defined: "Incapable by nature of being seen, inac-. cessible to view, hidden, im--1 perceptible" etc. Now, C: certainly, these are words m with substance, espeCially when referring to substantial and insubstantial rascals. z "Invisible," whose synonyms include "concealed, veiled, shrouded, cloaked, unno ticed, and unobserved," would gladly have embraced the shenanigans of Herman "Who, me?" Cam. And who might be a better fit for "hushed-up," than the Scarlet Pimpernel himself, "Newt Gingrich, the Orig..: inal Midnight Creeper?" And finally, one settles upon Mitt Romney, man of many hours. Has he run so many times, maybe, a moment of invisibility would do him good? In the meantime, on the other side, President Barack Obama continues to accomplish all, but one thing to guarantee his return to the White House And that c :a a one thing is fact thatre gardless of his success, he j will always be Black. Call it G) transparency. Call it invisi-m bility. I call it prophecy!"

For instance, something that's been tickling me recently is the outrage I've been witnessing Black men exhibit every time they see a Black woman with a white guy. It amuses me because, usu ally, the Black men I hear disgruntled the most are the same ones who once told me how much of a fetish they had for white women themselves. And each time they get heated I seem to have to remind them that, "bruh, you can't have it both ways." To me, it's the classic exam ple of the unfaithful, jealous boyfriend. He doesn't really want his girlfriend anymore. >-He has no intentions of doing right by her. Yet he doesn't 0: want anyone else to have her LL. either c The idea that these guys, Z with their own white lust issues, are getting their feathic( ers ruffled whenever they see women like Halle Berry, w Kerry Washington, ::::l Naomi Campbell, Zoe 1-Saladana, or Venus ij: Williams involved in an W interracial relationship is Gj ironic, blatantly hypocritical c and like l said before, funny. W For years, I've watched Black women play second fid ::J dle to these self-conscious, m brain washed brothers who have a long history of being Z overly captivated with women i= of different nationalities. Now W that the tables have begun to ..J turn, many of these men are having a hard time coping Granted, Hollywood and Madison Avenue have done their part to perpetuate the situation by creating waves of movies, television shows, commercials and print ads, which have been unusually open recently in regard to promoting the coupling between white men and Black women. But, that shouldn't come as a surprise. Ninety percent of everything we watch, read or hear is, in some form or fashion, produced or decided upon by men who are melanin chal lenged. And since these white boys have been digging Black girls since Marc Anthony made moves on Cleop-atra, it makes sense that they would use all of the tools at their disposal to execute an agenda that best suits them. They recognize the dilemma in which Black women find themselves. Along with Mother Nature already providing for the birth of more females than males, Black women also have to deal with the additional burden of watching a significant number of her potential mates being systematically removed from the pool of eligibility by factors such as incarceration, homicide, drug addiction and homosexuality. In most cases, that leaves her competing with 20 or more other Black women for the affection and companion ship of one Black man. If that man then chooses to overlook them all in favor of something he sees as more exotic, then she's left with one of two options: knowingly or unknowingly sharing the men who are left or stepping out side of her comfort zone to experience "something new." In the process, white men patiently wait to seize upon this unique opportunity They use savvy campaigns and send subliminal messages that say; "We're just as cool. We're just as fun. We won't disrespect you. And if size and compara ble performance is a concern, we have products like Enzyte and Extendz to assist in that department as well. Come to us." It all boils down to the fact that Jimes are changing and as uncomfortable as it may feel to some, it is what it is. The average successful Black woman today is deciding to move on with her life instead of continuing to wait for her would-be African king to get his act together. So fel!as, the next time you see a beautiful Black woman out with a white dude, don't get mad. That is what happens when you leave your prized possessions unprotect ed. And don't forget, you were the first one who couldn't wait to hop the fence. She just fol lowed your lead to see what all the fuss was about.

Reality On Ice is by the "Florida Sentinel Bulletin Publishing Company. m ..J w z i= z w en rnwtion A bout Our Qua l ij i c atiom A11d E.J.p e ri e nce Florida Election Law Calculated Anack On Voting Rights Hundreds of Floridians packed a Hillsborough County courtroom for an unprecedented hearing on changes to Florida's election law passed last spring by the Republican dominated Florida legislature. The first ever field hearing on legislation that critics say dramati cally alters voter participation and actually suppresses minority votes was conducted by U.S. Senator Dick Durbin, Chairman of the Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights, and Human Rights Committee. U.S. Senator Bill Nelson of Florida was sworn in to participate in the hearing. Sen. Nelson decried the law when it passed last spring, challenging its undoing of necessary reforms to election laws resulting from the 2000 election debacle. According to sworn testimony during the hearing, the impact of HB 1355 is weighted heavily against Blacks, Hispanics, the elder ly and students who vote democratic overwhelmingly and turned out in unprecedented numbers in 2008 for President Barak Obama. Florida's law is considered the most onerous and because it is the largest most influential state of the 35 with voter changes made by Republican legislatures nationwide. Senator Durbin extended an invitation to Governor Rick Scott to attend and discusses the changes to the law but, Gov. Scott did not appear. Republican members of the committee were also no shows. Testimony from a host of elections experts revealed what Senators Nelson and Durbin called an obvious "voter suppres_sion act,"_ meant to hurt Blacks, Hispanics and young voters at the polls." Here are the changes to the law impacting minority voter performance. Reduced early voting days from 14 to 8 days eliminating Sunday, the day Blacks and Hispanics vote more than any other ethnic group. Dramatic reduction in time for submission of voter registration, burdensome paperwork, penalties for groups that traditionally register minorities. Those groups include the League of Women Voters, NAACP, teachers and a host of civic groups who have been discouraged by the penalties in particular. Disallow change of address at the polls and making voters vote by provi sional ballots. This change disproportionately impacts college students, the mi)itary and minorities. Upwards of 40% of provisional ballots are likely to _be discarded. Only Republican Supervisor of Elections for Seminole County Michael Ertel attempted to defend the law. He said he deputized school principals so they would avoid the $1,000 penalties by missing registration deadlines. Vcilusia County Supervisor of Elections, Ann McFall said the law is designed to discourage third parties from participating in the process. "The fact is a number of states including Florida have made it harder for some people to vote," said Sen. Nelson. A U.S. District Court panel is reviewing the law and the US Justice Department will likely have the final say and determine if the law is a violation of the Voting Rights Act.

FAMUUpdate FAMI President Suspends MembershiP Intake And Cancels Band Camp TALLAHASSEE, Fla. Florida A&M University (FAMU) President James H. Ammons announced Tuesday that he will temporarily suspend the induction, enrollment, initiation, membership intake and recruitment for all student clubs and organizations until fall 2012. Ammons also announced the cancellation of the 2012 Summer Band Camp. "Our top priority is the health, safety and well being of students, said Ammons. "We are convening a panel of experts and outstanding thinkers to provide advice and recommendations on the operation of student organi zations. Before we enter into a new student intake process, we should have the benefit of the work coming from the committees and the investi gations." Ammons made the deci sion to suspend intake and other membership activities after discussions with student leaders, advisors and other university personnel. "I totally suppo -rt this ef fort, said Breyon Love, president of FAMU Student Government Association "This issue of hazing has had a far-reaching impact on the university and I believe that we need to pause for a moment to make sure that all of our students are ready to se riously move in a di r ection which will result in a com pl ete culture chang e. W e w ant to rria ke sure every stu d ent knows about the personal responsibility they hav e in making sure we wipe out hazing on our campus. According to Ammons, the temporary suspension on ini tiation and membership in take is effective as of January 31, 2012. Ammons deliv ered the news at a mandatory campus wide forum on safety which included a panel dis cussion by a group of campus administrators who focused on the assistance available to the campus community when safety issues arise and what the reporting responsibilities are for stude' nts, faculty and staff Ammons told the group he has decided to cancel the band camp in light of the on going investigation and the plans to convene a F AMU Board of Trustees Anti-Haz ing Committee that will re view how FAMU will best govern band activities.

CREWS Sentinel StaffWriter Michael Dobson is a third generation Floridian, and the founder and managing member of Dobson, Craig and Associates, a Government Re lations and Consulting Firm. Dobson said it's always been important to him that African Americans be involved in all political activities. "Historically, the GOP (Re publican Party) hasn't reached out to the minority commu nity. There must be a con certed effort to make sure this gets done. "I am arranging a meeting with Republican leaders in Tal lahassee to make sure the Republican National Convention will reflect more of what Amer ica looks like." Dobson said he's going to make sure the media gets the word out to let potential mi nority vendors know what they need to do to take advantage of the opportunities that will be available at the RNC. "I want to educate the members of the RNC commit tee and the Host Committee on MICHAEL DOBSON how they acquire vendors I want to make sure when the convention the cam eras reflects a more diversified America because of mjnority vendor participation. I'm also in dialogue with members of the Tampa Host committee to see what they re doing to get the word out." Dobson said he noticed the information about vendor participation was not being put out as it should, and a recent rally in Safety Harbor was an intentional oversight. "The vendor rally in Safety Harbor wasn't something that was given any thought by the Join PLPF As N GOP organizers as far as mak-o ...a. ing sure everyone knew about N it." Dobson said it all starts with minority vendors and business owners getting regis tered so they can be recognized and given a chance to partici pate. The 2012 Tampa Host committee Director of commu nications, Eileen Rodriguez, said they've developed a pro gram they hope will create op portunities for minorities. "We are promoting small businesses, and that includes minority-owned companies We ask them all to sign up/reg ister, and list the services they offer. We need them to become a certified, registered small business to participate." Rodriguez said they are not promising or guaranteeing contracts or opportunities, but they did create a network to 0 promote inclusion. :::D "For all small/minority-C owned businesses to take ad-vantage of opportunities at the m RNC, they need to visit the z website, www.2012tampa.com, get certified, and become part m of the small business network. r-Ill c: r-r-!:!l z "'tl c: Ill r-(i) ::t: m c m < m Alicia Griffin's 8-Day Customer Appreciation BB c: m CJ) c )> z c ., Saturday, February 4, 20 12 p. p.m. 9 St. :::D c G) m ......

CREWS Sentinel Staff Writer Mrs. Ola Abreu and her sister, Mrs. Sheilah Youngblood, founded an organization called Our Sisters, Our Friends. The organization's mission was to provide a platform to uplift and support women who have been going through tough times. Two months ago, Mrs. Abreu took it a step further when she opened a safe haven house for women coming out of jail. "I feel there's a need for this, because these women have no place to go. I try to help them get a jumpstart back to their lives, and also provide them a place to live and food assistance. It's also vital to get them reunited with their families, and I support them in every way." MRS. OLA ABREU Mrs. Abreu said she doesn't have a staff, and is doing everything by herself. She also said there aren't enough places like this for women. "These women are being released back into society with no hope or direction. I try to help them find a job, and give them the tools they need to be successful. There are a lot of success stories when someone shows they care enough to help them." Mrs. Abreu said the 5 women she's currently working with range in age from 26 to 48. "It's important to me, we have a family atmosphere and share everything. I want them to lean on each other for support." "They can call my facility home for 6 months or longer ifthey need it." Mrs. Abreu said she's still in the process of giving her facility a name, but feels that's not as important as making sure the women know they have somewhere togo.

LAS VEGAS -Floyd Mayweather Jr. got almost everything he wanted Wednesday, receiving a boxing license and naming an opponent and a date for his next fight The unbeaten champion got everything except a showdown with Manny Pacquiao. Mayweather will fight Miguel Cotto on May 5 at Las Vegas' MGM Grand Garden after Nevada's athletic commissioners granted him a conditional license for one fight before he goes to jail in June. -Mayweather (42-0, 26 KOs) chose Cotto (36-2, 29 KOs), the respected Puerto Rican champion, as his next opponent only after failing to land a date with Pacquiao, the superstar Filipino congressman. The two sides have discussed what's likely to be the most lucrative fight in boxing history for nearly three years without reaching a deal. "I presented Pacquiao with the fight," Mayweather said after meeting with the Nevada commission. "Pacquiao is blowing a lot of smoke .... He doesn' t reallywant to fight. I gave him a chance to step up to the plate. We're talking about a $10 mil lion fighter that I tried to give $40 million to. We didn t even talk about the back end." ''I'm just happy to be fighting May 5 Mayweather said as he emerged from the hearing room. They granted me one fight I need to con duct myself like a gentleman and do everything that the court ordered and then r::ome back in front of them and show them that I deserve to have a license for a whole year." Mayweather, a seventime world champion in five weight classes, will turn 35 this month. He' ll step up in weight against Cotto for the WBA super welterweight belt Kobe Brvantls NBA's Highest Earner KOBE BRYANT Kobe Bryant's Lakers are the league's most valuable franchise, and according to Forbes, Bryant is the NBA s biggest earner on an annual basis (LeBron James is number two).

Factor in his league leading $25.2 million salary from the Lakers and Bryant is the NBA's top-earn ing athlete at $53.2 million.

Serena Williams Cheers For Giants In Super Bowl. INDIANAPOLIS From the heart of Patriots country, Serena Williams is cheering for the New York Giants in the Super Bowl. "I always root for the younger brother," she said Tuesday. Giants quarterback, Eli Manning will be going for his second NFL title; his brother, Colts quarterback Peyton Manning, is five years older and has won one Super Bowl. Serena Williams' empathy for the younger sibling is understandable-she is 15 months younger than her sister and Fed Cup teammate, Venus. The Americans will face Belarus and new world No. 1 Victoria Azarenka in the first round of the Fed Cup this weekend in Worcester, Massachussets. DWAYNE WADE Dwyane Wade's gorgeous girlfriend, actress Gabrielle Union, threw the Miami Heat all-star a birthday party recently. Then, a local car dealership decided to oneup the actress/model by gift ing the guard a McLaren that is valued at nearly a quarter of a million dollars. The ancient adage that the richer you become, the more free stuff you get is rolling hard and heavy in Miami these days. Counting birthday gifts as "free stuff" is a bit of a stretch, but counting a McLaren MP4-12C as a "birthday gift" is nearly as big a stretch. It was a stretch to even deliver the car into the party, as the dealership awarding the exotic, 592-brake horsepower machine had to deliver the automobile in by crane as it couldn t be driven through the hotel hosting Wade's party.

:!! trying to live according to the Gives Women A Second Chance works Are Not Enough There are many people who believe that they must do good to be saved One of the responses to 'why not get saved' is, 'I am not liVing right.' If the truth be told, if living right was a prerequisite for getting saved, there would not be that many saved peo ple! We do not do good works to be saved ; rather we do good works, because we are saved The letter to the churches in Galatians 2:15-21 serves as the scripture for this week s lesson. There are' some who believe that following the law is the way to salvation. This letter corrects that misunder standing and sheds light on the truth about salvation. The tension in this era is between the Jews and the Gentiles. There are some who believed that if the Gentiles are going to become members of the body of Christ, they needed to be circumcised. This circumcision is in accor dance to the law This is what Paul clarifies. Being justified is not about the law but about faith in Christ Jesus (vs. 16). The people of God are justified by their faith in Jesus. As a per son accepts Christ and be lieves in Christ they will follow and obey the law. Paul explains to the Jews who believe that if a person is saved by faith then they do not have to follow, that such a belief is not the case. Because a person is saved or justified by faith does not mean that the law does not apply or that Christ condones sinful behav ior. Paul writes in verse 18 that if he rebuilds what he has de stroyed, then it proves that he is a lawbreaker. The point he tries to make to the people is that, it does not make sense to go backwards. God has shown you a perfect way to live a life of righteousness and there is no reason to go back. Paul had an amazing reve lation about the law. He con cludes that when he tried to BROWN MEMORIAL CHURCH OF GOD IN CHRIST 2313 E. 27th AVE. (813) 248-5690 (813) 241-6902 WEEKLY WORSHIP SCHEDULE Sunday School ...... 9:30A.M.

There are many people trying to live according to laws and religious doctrine but keep falling short. The em phasis must not be on keeping some law or doctrine, but to live according to the word of God. Paul declares that he has been crucified with Christ, and it is no longer him who lives, but Christ who lives in him. Further, the life he lives in the body, he lives by faith in the Son of God, who loved him and gave His life for him (vs. 20). Every believer must share this conclusion. When we are saved and baptized we share in the crucifixion of Christ. Therefore, that old person and that old way of living die, too. Since we have died we must now live a new life. The life to be lived is a life of faith in Christ. The purpose of Christ's coming was to do what the law could not do: save your soul. If the law could save you, then Christ died for nothing (vs. 21). This proves that a person is .not righteous be cause of works of the law. Christ died because your works were not enough to save you!

CREWS Sentinel Staff Writer Mrs. Margaret Palmer spent years working as a volunteer counselor for incar cerated women. During that period, Mrs. Palmer no ticed a lot of the women were changing their lives, but she also noticed that some, shortly after their release, were finding their way back to jail. That's when she de cided to do something to re verse that trend. Almost 12 years ago, Mrs. Palmer founded the Hills borough House Of Hope (HHH), a place women could go to successfully reenter the community. HHH Program Manager, Linda Walker, said she feels the passion of Mrs. Palmer, and last year, they started the first "Spring Fling" event "The Spring Fling event is a fashion show and luncheon, but even more importantly, it serves as an outlet for women to show off their skills as fashion models, hair design ers, and makeup artists.

Ms. Walker said the idea of the "Spring Fling" was not just to showcase the women, but also to reach out to the community so everyone will know what l:l.appens at HHH. This year's event will be hosted by Gayle Sierens, and will be held March 20th at b the Tampa Yacht and Coun:!! try Club from 12-2 p: m.

FYI 3 wavs To Avoid PMI What are some simple methods to avoid PMI? Buy A Home You Can Afford -If you buy a home you can afford, you are more likely to be able to come up with a down payment that is closer to twenty percent and you are more likely to build equity quickly and get rid of PMI down the line. Don't get seduced by keeping up with the J oneses -they are probably up to their eyeballs in debt. Borrow Your Down Payment -If you can borrow the twenty percent to put down, then you should do it. Tap family or other resources. The interest rate on the loan will probably be far lower than the PMI you'll be stuck with for years. Take Two Loans -A great way to avoid PMI is to take out two mortgage loans when you buy a home. Your first mortgage could be for eighty percent and the second mortgage could be for twenty percent. The great part about this solution is that you avoid PMI and you can pay down but keep your equity line open. This gives you low interest flexibility for future home improvements!

For the common man or woman, cloud computing simply refers to resources and applications that are available on the Internet from just about any Internet con nected device For bu s inesses cloud computing can refer to much more, but that is beyond the scope of this column and we'll only address the consumer side here Examples of cloud comput ing have been with us for a while. Take for example Hotmail and Yahoo. These email applications differ dramatically from company based email systems in that they were always available whenever you have an Internet connection and you didn't need your company IT guy to set them up or to maintain them for you. Company webmail access provides the same access, but you still need the company IT guy. But some great new applications are making themselves available that you ma y want to conside r For instance we talked about online backup capabilit y for your pc. If your computer crashes you'll have a backup available to y o u in "The Cloud." Some people are using "Th e Cloud" like you 'would a fl ash drive.
