Features ::a East Tampa Resident Being Pressured Bv Citv To Sell Her Home BY LEON B. CREWS Sentinel StaffWriter Linda Dixon is fully aware of what the City of Tampa paid businessman Gene O'Steen for his prop erty the now demolished Gene's Bar, and what they recentl y agreed to pay for a house for a roundabout. Ms. Dixon said when she was first approached by an official from the city, she was offered $21,000 for her double corner lot that sits one block away from the old bar location. "Two weeks ago, I was offered $8o,ooo, and I still feel my property is worth more. I don't understand how they can pay so much for the other properties, but not offer me a fair price for mine. "I remember when they made their first offer, I was also threatened with eminent domain if I didn't agree to what they were offering. I considered that a threat, and that made me hold on even tighter to my property Ms. Dixon said the owner of the house behind hers said he had been approached by someone who offered to take him out to dinner to discuss the sale of his property I also got a call from someone who claimed they had worked for the city in the past, and could get me $115,000 for my property He didn't give me any contact information, and he never showed me any identification. He even knew Linda Dixon's home and lot 21st Street. about another piece of property I own in the area." Ms. Dixon's property is being sought as part of a proposed project by the CDC and the city's East Tampa Manager, Ed Johnson, to build aU-Save Supermarket. Ernest Coney, Jr., C.O.O of the CDC of Tampa, Incorporated, said he can't get into specifics about the proposed supermarket right now. "I'm not prepared to discuss that project right now, but we have secured a feder al grant for $759,000 to help bring healthy foods to areas that are considered food deserts (not a lot of healthy foods readily available). "Within the grant are some economic development projects that will provide jobs for residents Coney said the grant is for 3 years, and he' s excited about the jobs that will be created, and the fact they will be within walking distance of residents in the area. We also want to insure small businesses and minority owned companies be able to take advantage of the con struction projects." Arrested and Concerned About Your Legal Rights?

HOLTON Sentinel City Editor Some may be familiar with a downtown cafe, but may not recognize its name. The reason is, in 2004 when it opened, it was Nola Cafe.

The owner, Louis Robert, Jr., 48, said it still offers that taste of authentic Louisiana cuisine to its customers.

Opinions expressed on pages of this newspaper by Columnists or Guest Writers, do not necessarily reflect the editorlal"stance of The Florida Sentinel BulleUn or the Publisher. 1 No Twinkies With Food -Stamps And what has Florida's own version of Alice In Wonderland's Queen of Hearts been doing while being a senator up in Tallahassee? Has she dreamed up ways to lop off poor people's heads or commit prison inmates to a torture chamber rack? Well, maybe. But most recently, what our very own Senator Rhonda Storms has done, is lead a well-advertised and seemingly well-supported effort to make certain that Floridians on welfare do not use food stamps to gain grocery goodies like doughnuts, Paydays, Hershey Bars and such. Her argument is elementary. State funds should not be used for frivolous purchases. We agree ... but not just for people who get food stamps. Yes, Ms. Storms, we do agree that food stamp recipients should not be allowed to use stamps to buy lottery tickets or use them at gambling casinos. But that's where our support stops. Argues Storms, by allowing food stamp recipients to u,se stamps to buy junk food, the State is, in effect, supporting bad nutrition and dangerous health practices. If Senator Storms' angst rests solely on the idea that State monies should not be used for nonsense; then we suggest anyone who receives State funds should not be allowed to spend their funds on foolishness, either. After all, FAIR IS FAIR! Or has Florida finally become a two-tier society? Frequent Classroom Visitations Needed Politely ignore people who say certain things only happen in Hollywood. Such statements are untrue and dangerous. Why? Because what happened to 23 elementary school children in, of all places, Los Angeles, California between 2008 and 2010 could have happened here in Hillsborough County. An elementary school teacher blindfolded, and then sexually abused more than 23 children for two straight years without being detected. This was not a Stephen King .or Edgar Allan Poe horror story, it was a real life horror story, that 23 children will be haunted by for the rest of their lives. This is why, parents, .... you must be ever-vigilant and ask your children specific questions about what goes on in their classrooms every day. The fact that these parents did not discover their children's gruesome abuse until school officials accidentally stumbled. upon it, is itself unbelievable. How something so vile could happen to so many children without one complaint, has yet to be re:. vealed. But this true story reveals to us, that evil lurks, and our children are the victims. Parents, spend time daily communicating with your children. Hollywood is on the West Coast. Hillsborough County is home. A thletes! Athletes! What are we go in g to do with some of them? I am tired of reading about athletes who make hundreds of millions of dollars over a 12-14 year span and end up dead broke. You might be tempted to ask how a man can make that kind of money and end up broke? All athletes know that re gardless of what sport they play the team draws up plays designed to get the team a score. The other alternative is to draw up a play designed to stop the other team from scoring. Athletes should learn from that and draw up plays designed to earn them a com fortable lifestyle after retire ment. What do these players do with all of this money? How do they let it all get away from them? P ardon me, but can we who are Black still use the term "Black," as a statement of pride? Or has it died out with the Civil Rights 6os and 70s? Indeed, I want to know because every now and then when I look into my mirror or when I gaze into the eyes and hear the voice of a Black child or a young person who informs nie that they are doing fine in school or in life, I feel proud to be a Black man. The first time I thought in depth about the subject of self, was a day many years ago, when the brother of a lad y I knew informed me that his class was going to sing a song Donny Hathaway had just recorded. It was called "To Be Young, Gifted And Black!" I had never heard of Donny Hathaway and did n t know anything about his song. So I went to a reco r d store, and bought a 45 rpm of "To Be Young, Gifted, And Black!" I took my purchase home, sat down and listened to it. And this is what I heard: To b e young, gifted, and Black! Oh what a lov e ly, precious dream. I To be young, gifted, and Black! I Open your heart They do a number of things with it. They let lawy ers, agents and investment brokers beat them out of millions of dollars. Some even a llow these hired hustlers to put their names on the athlet e's bank accounts. More money goes down the drain buying luxury cars, expensive jewelry and costly clothes. The money drain gets even more taxing as fam ily beg and steal the athlete blind. Friends and family feel that they can beg the athlete for money just be cause he has money. Making all these millions makes the athlete want to travel and party. This of course costs big money. The ladies chase after them look.: ing for money and expensive gifts. They have absolutely no concern for the athlete and are only in what they can get frotn him. to what I meah. I Cause ... in the whole world, I There's a million boys and girls I Who are young, gifted, and Black. and it's sho 'nuff where it's at!" When the song was ished, I went to my room, looked into my bedroom mir ror, and wept for joy! Those tears a love affair With me, myself and the word "Black." I c;arried my love of being Black all through the 1960s and 1970s It sustained me when villains-yet-unfound stole the l ives of John F. Kennedy, his brother Robert, Malcolm X, and Reverend Dr. Martin. Luther King, Jr. My lov e of b e ing Bla ck ros e lik e an eagl e when I heard the Kin g of Soul, James Brown, shout, "Say It Loud! I m Black And Proud!" Indeed, even now as I r ec ollect the first day I heard that song, it sends shivers of power doWn m y ... -As a Black man, new-born in the word that described me, I felt absolutel y powerful to do all things right and right e ous. Indee d, I was God-handsome, washed in the blood of Blackness and redeemed by the true-Black light of day! keeping your eye s on your money. Don't let anybody spend any of your money or encourage yo u to spend your money until you fully understand what the money is being spent on and how it will benefit you. The ne x t step is to open up to a savings account, add to that savings account every pay day. A pre-determined amount should go into sav ings, every paycheck. Then find yourself a reputable fi nancial advisor and investor to look for low-risk invest ments. Don't buy anything that you don't need and don't buy everything you can afford. Show ine somebody who buys everything that they can afford, and I will show you a broke individual. Athletes, take care of your money. It's no fun being rich and then But Black people, these days, don't think like that, anymore. syndicated column written b y a syndicated Black man abo11t another Black man, -President Barack Obama, the syndi cated Black columnist complained that President Obama : 'taking advantage of raci9-l politics. The man's accusation caused me to wonder, could President Obama's problem be simply that he was Black? If so, how could another Black man ac cuse his Black brother of his same so-called crime? Yet, despite my embrace or' an America full with the powers of diversity, I still bold dear my thick lips, my African nose, kinky hair, and love for things named and unnamed that point shadowy fingers to my historical past. Perhaps, that is why, just the other day, when I was reading the morning news, I was consumed by the picture of young, Black Antonio Hendricks, a sixth-grader at Tampa's Van Buren Middle School who was proudly presenting his science project, "Perceptions of Reflec tion ," to a mesmerized observer. The photographer 's camera caught the majesty of the moment. And as I gazed "11 5 :D en m z -4 z m r-aJ c r r-z "tt c llJ c en :I: m c m < m -4 c m en -< )> z c "11 :D g -< at the B1ack student and his white spectators, I heard Donny Hatl,.away's song once more "To Be Young, Gifted, And Black!

The Road To The State High school basketball in the State of Florida has entered its second season for both boys and girls. The second season is known as the road to the state. The boys are completing their districts and the girls have moved on to the regionals. It appeared that the two teams with the best shot at reaching them are Tampa Prep and Jesuit. Both of these teams are talented and deep. Tampa Prep is undefeated and Jesuit has lost one game and that was at an out of state hol iday tournament. In girl's' basketball, it appears that Steinbrenner, Seffner Christian and Jefferson have the best chance C of making state. Even these a: three teams are considered dark horses.

Steinbrenner can make it because they have a talented, experienced team that has had an outstanding season. Jefferson could sneak to state because they have a good road to travel on their way to state. The lack of a state tournament point guard will hurt Tampa Bay Tech.

Believing leads To Blessings The people are blessed more than they realize. There are many people living blessed lives and are not sure why. Not realizing how or why, can have an effect on one's relationship and service towards God. Paul in his letter to the Galatians 3!1-14, writes to the church and asks them a series of questions to help spark understanding of what God has done for them. He asks them the question who has fooled you (vs. 1)? According to the way the people are living, it is evident that someone has fooled or told them the wrong infor mation. The people of God must make sure thatthey do not see the actions of the world and believ e the w.orld more than they do the work of Jesus Christ. The people in Galatia are going back to their old belief that they are saved and blessed because of the law. Paul asks them, is it because of the law or because of what you have heard (vs. 2)? Some of the people were listening to the .teaching of others and held to the opin ion that they got the Spirit of God because of the law. This is an opinion on the contrary. The people have the Spirit of God because they believed whl:!.t they heard about Jesus Christ, The blessings of the Lord are the results of believ ing what Jesus did and not because of how you live ac cording to the law. Another question Paul asks is, are you foolish? Are you now trying to attain your goal by human efforts (vs. 3)? There has to be some thing wrong with people who think they are blessed and living in the favor of God be cause of their own human ef forts. You are nofblessed because of your works. Your workS would not dictate you to be blessed like you are! IVIOUNT PLEASANT M. a. CHURCH. 2002 N. Rome Avenue. : (Corner ofRome Ave. and Spruce St.) P.O. Box 4724 Tampa Dr. c. T.

Many More. Skin And Hair Care Tips For Black Men It's a misconception that men are not con cerned about their hair and skin care problems, but that's not always true. Since hair is such a big part of your appearance, keeping it well maintained is important. Ingrown Hairs And RaZor Bumps If quality products for African American skin care are difficult to find, Black men's skin care is almost im possible to find. It's important to find products formulated to meet common needs most Black men share like the need for added mois ture, additional oil and prob lems with Pseudofolliculitis Barbae, a.k.a., Razor Bumps. For a Black man, shaving can be a particularly painful task. It has been reported that 6o-8o% of Black men suffer from razor bumps, at least to some degree. Other ethnic men suffer from these as well. The easiest solution would be to cut down the number of times you shave, but this is not always possible. Aside from that you use a single blade razor or clippers to cut the hair short above the skin. Keep skin moisturized and shave the beard in the same direction that the hairs are growing. Many men shave against the grain, which is in correct. Have a barber "map" your face. Face mapping de termines the direction in which you should shave so that it's consistent with beard growth. In terms of products, acids and alcohol are damaging to hair and skin and need to be avoided. Stick with products that include high-quality vitamins and oils that are friendly to your skin. Dandruff And Your Scalp Dandruff is the clear indi cator that you have a dry scalp. A dry scalp makes it much harder to get waves. Dandruff can be. caused by washing hair too much and stripping it of its naturill oils too niuch or not washing it enough, and it is also caused by not oiling/moisturizing the scalp Waves will be easier to ob tain if your scalp is moistur ized and soft so waves can be formed easier than having a dry hard scalp. Keep your scalp moisturized but don't put too much grease or mois turizer because this can clog the pores in your scalp and cause acne. Is Your Computer Harming Your Heallhil Computer Vision Syndrome Marked by dry eye, neck and shoulder pain, blurred VISion, eyestrain, and headaches, computer vision syndrome (CVS) is sparked by overuse of computers, particularly desktops with large screens. While it's usu ally temporary, severe cases can be extremely debilitat ing. The best ways to relieve or avoid CVS are better pos ture, smaller screen, improving lighting to reduce glare on the screen, taking frequent breliks, and ulti mately, decreasing computer use. E-thrombosis Long airline flights aren't the only risk for deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism (DVf /PE, potentially fatal blood clots that form in leg veins and travel to the lungs). Up to 6oo,ooo Americans develop DVf /PE annmil.ly, the CDC reports, and 20 per cent of them die. It's not known how many cases are linked to heavy computer use. To prevent e-thrombo sis, get up and move around every hour or two while using your computer What -where, When And How To Eat There are a lot of healthy foods that can help you lose the weight you want and keep it off. Here are a few simple healthy eating habits: What To Eat Eat a variety of foods from meat, legumes, dairy, grains, fruits, vegetables and small amount of fat daily Vegetables and fruits are a great source of vitamins and minerals. Carbohydrates in fruits, milk, grains and legumes will give you quick energy for the first 2 hours while protein in milk, meat and legumes will keep you satisfied for 4 hours. The fat in -meaj and milk as w:ell as fat added to foods will keep you satisfied for 6 hours. WhereTo Eat Eliminate eating in the car, bus, walking, standing or on the phone. Make time to eat meals and snacks by sitting down at a table. Read about the dangers of driving and eating When To-Eat Eat breakfast and two other meals each who eat breakfast are less' likely to snack in the evening. Eat at least every 4 to 6 hours when awake rather than waiting until your stomach starts growling. -How Much To Eat Calories count. Choose smaller portion sizes. Forget t;hose super sizes as they are expensive to your waistline. Eat slower and drink water with a meal. Food takes _20 minutes for a message to get from your stom ach to your brain that you are full so meals should take at least 20 minutes and preferably longer. Chew each mouthful thoroughly. If you eat food that isn't on your plan, don't get down on yourself. Get diately back on your plan rather than waiting for the > next day or New Years to start agaip.

wavs we Prematurelv Age Our Skin Diabetes Risks Chamomile It's ironic how things are younger people often want to look older, while older peo ple want to look younger. A second irony is that peo ple put a substantial amount of time, energy and money into maintaining a youthful appearance. They place deep emotional investments in the results. Yet, they live lifestyles that promote pre mature aging. Here are five examples. Sun -UV rays are one of the leading causes of prema ture aging. This is one issue that African-Americans do not take seriously enough. Make no mistake, sun expo sure does have negative ef fects on us if we don't take the proper precautions, espe cially long-term. Taking the proper precau tions means applying and reapplying sun protection year round. It means wear ing protective clothing and accessories during periods of prolonged sun exposure. Furthermore, when the sun is the brightest, you should do your best to stay indoors or in the shade Sleeping Many people are unaware that the way y ou sleep can affect the way you look. Due to differing sleep ing habits, men tend to have sleep lines mostly on their foreheads and women on the sides of their faces. Both can avoid these telling signs by sleeping on their backs. Dehydration When skin is not properly hydrated is can become dry, cracked and tight. It can lose its vi brance and elasticity. As is the case with sleep, the cells need water to remain healthy. Therefore, make sure you drink plenty and avoid regular, heavy con sumption of alcohol, a major dehydrator. Smoking-: Another of the side effects of smoking (as if there aren't enough) is that it can lead to premature aging. To begin with, the chemicals in tobacco products ad versely affect collagen and elastin, essential compo nents of healthy skin. Aggra vating matters further, nicotine constricts the blood vessels. When blood does not effectively flow to the skin, the skin does not receive an adequate suppl y of oxygen and nutrients to feed the cells. The risks of diabetes and hypertension is of particular importance to African Amer ican women. A lack of sleep is one cul prit. The best medicine for a long, hard day at work, school, or everyday errands and activities, but many peo ple aren't getting the eight hours of re-energizing power for the following day. In fact, most are getting barely six hours of sleep, which could result in a high risk of developing certain conditions, including dia betes. Another culprit is expo sure to nitrogen oxides (NOx) in the air which causes increased risk of type 2 dia betes and hypertension. Both conditions are almost twice as high in African American women as in other women Ease Menstrual Cramps Sipping chamomile tea during your menstrual cycle will help sooth your cramps and add a feeling of calm. Ditch The Itch For irritating itches, steep a few chamomile tea bags in hot water. After it cools, soak a clean cloth in the tea and apply it directly to the itchy area, several times a day. Bye-Bye Back Pain When your back is aching, call on chamomile, ginger and peppermint. To make a pain-relieving tea, mix the herbs in equal parts, then brew, sip and relax. Get Some Zu:i:z. Slowly sip chamomile tea at night to treat insomnia and restlessness. Or place a little sachet of the herb under your pillow for a peaceful night's sleep. Oh, Go Soak Your Feet Chamomile is a gentle an tifungal herb that's tough enough to trample athlete's foot. Rinse your feet in chamomile tea in the morn ing, at n!ght and after every shower, dry thoroughly, es pecially between each toe m m ::D c: )> Eye Spy Relief Relieve symptoms from ...... macular degeneration with a P chamomile compress. Steep 1 teaspoon of the herb in 1 cup of hot water, cover for 10-15 min. Strain, let cool then saturate a cloth with the solution. Put compress over your eyes for 20 min. Rub And Relax To help release nervous tension and emotional stress in the belly, add 4-6 drops of chamomile oil to 1 table spoon of massage oil. Using gentle pressure, spread the oil over your abdomen in wide circles. Then, begin ning at your belly button, massage in small circles.

It's a day hyped to the max ,. u with love. But for some couples, the day is just an extension of :::1 how they operate year round. 2 Case in point: the Stamps and 3 Garcias: two local couples celeL brating that major milestone so years in marriage, the Golden Year. And they make it look ef fortless. Here are their inspira tional stories of how they reached the Fabulous 50. DRS. DAVID AND MIRIAM STAMPS, JR. Fall1959 Spurgeon Martin David Stamps, Jr. was a senior at Ten nessee State University in Nashville and a proud member of Omega Pi Fraternity. He and .) his frat brothers were planning to party and invited the ladies of u Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, at f nearby Fisk University, to join DRS. DAVID AND MIRIAM STAMPS, JR. them Miriam "Mimi" Burney was among the group, a sopho more at Fisk, pledging Delta at the time. "There were five guys and six girls and we took them to this party," says Dr. Stamps. "I ended up sitting between Mimi and another girl. After we took them back to the dorm, I told Mimi I would call her." But, "he didn't," says Mrs. Stamps. "I saw him again when he came to my dorm after Christmas break. He claimed he was coming to ask me out, but he was really coming to ask someone else out: He had this reputation of love 'um and leave 'um." The two eventually went out on that date and the former Miss Burney captured the heart of the alleged Casanova. "When I met her, I thought she was the one. I think I fell in love with her before she fell in love with me." Dr. Stamps is four years older and graduated first. Prov ing his love and commitment, the Tennessee native opted to stick around and take a high school teaching job in Nashville, while the woman of his dreams com pleted her undergraduate degree. They dated two years and married on December 28, 1961 iri the bride's hometown of Jacksonville, FL. Life for them was an filled with travel and. achieving goals of higher education. They moved around the country, mak ing stops in Washington. State, Virginia, Tennessee and New York before settling in Florida. Dr. Stamps feels those moves were vital to the foundation of their marriage. "We depended on each other," he says. "We grew up together and because we didn't know anyone, Mimi not only became my wife and my lover, but also my best friend." Sacrifice was also a factor. Dr. Stamps recalls the years of tak ing on additional work as a grounds keeper, at the college where he and his wife worked as Teaching Assistants, to make ends meet He even gave up the opportunity to become Dean at Norfolk State University in Vir ginia, so his wife could pursue her Doctorate degree at Syracuse University in New York. Mrs. Stamps wasn't working at the time. The move and job change led to a thousand dollar a year cut in salary for Dr. Stamps; an amount considered huge during that time. His friends called him crazy, but Dr. Stamps says he never thought twice about it. It was what he wanted to do for the woman he roved. Their sacrifices have paid off over the years. After earning Doctorate degrees, both spent decades in higher education. Dr. David Stamps retired in 2010 after a 48-year professional col lege career. Twenty-eight of those years were spent at the Uni versity of South Florida, where he served as a Professor, Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, and Provost and Executive Vice President of Academic Affairs. Dr. Miriam Stamps is cur rently Chairperson of the Market ing Department in the College of Business at the University of South Florida and has no plans for retirement at this time. The Stamps are also authors of the book Salt City_imd its Black Community, a comparative study on Blacks and whites in Syracuse, New York. They plan to work on other books in the future and hope to spend their future travel ing the world. They've passed down their passion for educatioP.al excel lence to their two children. Their son, David Stamps, III is a Tampa attorney and a graduate .of Morehouse College in Atlanta. Their daughter, Monique is a Spelman alum who works as a Systems at Time Cus tomer Service in Tampa.


"11 RIGOBERTO (RIGO) AND SONJA GARCIA Spring, 1.959 Tampa native Rigo Garcia arrived on the campus of Florida A&M University in Tallahassee to pursue his Master's degree in ed ucation. The 28-year-old athlete had earned his undergraduate de gree years earlier at Tuskegee In stitute in Alabama, where he was the popular captain of the basket ball team and a member of Kappa Alpha Psi fraternity. Ladies loved him and for good reason. He was confident, suave ; bow legged and had a fierce ride. He and his 1959 white Chevy Impala, with red interior, were showstoppers on FAMU's cam pus. In fact, it was that car he af fectionately called "The White Bird" that caught the eye of 21 year old Sonja Williams, an Or lando native and recent F AMU grad working in the school of Agriculture and Home Econom ics. "His car really stood out at the Student Union Building," she says. The two had mutual friends from Tampa, Robert and Addie Seniors, who saw fit to introduce them. "I was doing a little running around with the ladies," Garcia RIGOBERTO (RIGO) AND SONJA GARCIA says. "Robert was my fraternity brother. When he introduced me to Sonja, I liked what I saw. She was a very elegant dresser. She had good poise and walked really That attracted me. She was a little more reserved than the other ladies I'd met." Although reserved, Garcia says his new acquaintance also had an aggressiveness about her. "She'd leave little notes on my car indicating she wanted to meet me again. I think she liked the way I looked." However, the former Miss Williams quickly points out there was more to it than that. "I was attracted to him because he seemed to be an honest person and he was polite. He never made any promises. He was different from most of the guys I knew dur ing that era and I liked that about him." After earning his graduate de gree, Garcia got a teaching job in Kissimmee and when the school posted an opening for a Business Education teacher, he recruited the one person he felt perfect for the job, his friend, Sonja. "When she came to Kissimmee we got real close and I started getting tired of running around." He began dropping hints about a future together and made a comment his young girlfriend wasn't quite expecting. "He told me he wanted me to be the mother of his children. I told him there's a step that comes before that." The two married on December 23, 1961 in Orlando and moved to Tampa in 1964. Mr. Garcia re members the turbulent times of segregation during those years and feels those challenges are what made his marriage strong. "During that time you had to work hard at everything. Back then you set goals you had to stick with them. You had to be committed. My parents taught me commitment and to give my best at everything I did. Marriage required a lot of commitment on my part. I didn't always get what I wanted when I wanted, but I learned to give a little and take a little. Commitment always re mained with me." The Garcias are now enjoying retirement. He spent 33 years in the Hillsborough County School system, serving nearly half of that time as Principal of Gary Adult Center. Mrs. Garcia earned a Master's Degree at the University of South Florida and spent 36 years working there. She made history at the school in 1964, when she became the first Mrican Ameri-"11 m m :::0 c: )> :::0 -< ..... 9 1\) 0 ..... 1\) "11 r 0 c )> en m z ::::! z m r m c: r r z "tJ c: m r c;; can hired in an academic support ffi position.

The Garcias are the parents of three sons. Their oldest, Robert, was an accomplished c drummer and harpist who at-tended Florida A&M arid Berklee c College of Music in Boston. He passed away in Rigo-, II, graduated from Tuskegee and is a Pharmaceutical Sales Represen tative who's also the owner of Rig Star Media, a digital marketing firm. Their youngest son, Renaldo finished from the Univer sity of. Florida and is Varsity coach of the Sickles High champi onship basketball team; T;he couple has six grandchildren and are the proud greatgrand parents of one, Rigoberto (Rigo) Garcia, IV. The Garcias are proud of theit. so year history and the legacy they've lived to witness. Their goal was to guide their sons in "faith and self worth to prepare them for the opportunities and challepges of life." They consider C) m that accomplishment their great-Cf est achievement. 0
