The guest minister will be Minister John Iverson of Valdosta, GA "'The divorce rate is at an all-time high, but the family is so important in our lives. God created and set up the family.

JAMES (VIVIAN) SUITLE,JR. -God's book, the Bible," he continued. Minister Suttle has been at Booth Street Church of Christ for 3 years and his goal is to getthe parishioners to build strong families. "'We can do that by going back to Bible principles. The family today is so different from the past. A reason for that is the loss of respect for the family structure. "Also, so many churches are overlooking the youth. We've got to bring the tom hearts of our children back to God," he further stated. One way his congregation plans to involve youth is by having an open mike session on Friday night of the revival so that young people can openly talk about their con cerns. Young couple may also want to question older cou ples about how they managed to stay together for so many years. "We've got to start doing Bible things the Bible way," he concluded.

Tampa's Black Businesses And De RIIC When it comes, it will hit Tampa like a hurricane. No less than so,ooo people are expected to attend the upcoming Republican National Conven. tion to be hosted in Downtown Tampa. Hotels as far away as Orlando will be full-to-capacity; restaurants will be bursting at the seams. Businesses of every stripe and imagination will be making more money than even the late Walt Disney could ever conceive. But here's the $64 million dollar question: In the City of Tampa, what are Black businesses doing to get a piece of the action and to bring home the bacon? The first one to answer the question wins the prize. Come on, some-body. The music is playing! What will Black Tampa businesses do on those fateful days beginning on August 2,... and ending on the 30th of that same month when a hoard of hungry Republicans descend on our fair city? Please tell us.that somewhere in this Southern place, a cadre of enterprising African American entrepreneurs are caucusing dally to deliver a plan whereby a network of Black restaurants, limousine services, event planners, computer centers and every other service imaginable will be able to provide 24-hour service to Republican Conservatives, whose non-stop-ideas and around-the-clock kibitzes will be a menu for empty stomachs and fat wallets. Black sororities, fraternities, Masonic lodges, and other organizations, bow many of your sisters and brothers who are of the Republican persuasion are about to set foot here, in our dazzling Tampa-Disneyworld? How many fish-fries and bouse parties have we planned for this "once-in-a-lifetime," salmon-spawning event? In other words, will we be ready this-time, or will RNC in Tampa be just another day for the Black business community? .............. ...... ........ PrloriiJ I G iven America's recent peace diplomacy, what happened in Afghanistan made no sense. Sixteen men, women, and children were murdered by what authorities have said was one American soldier, obviously suffering from a military mental breakdown. However, what should come to mind, eSpecially among the American military leadership, is an overall reconsideration of the mental health of veterans and our men and women overseas. Both the Department of Defense, as well as, the Department of Veterans' Affairs should actively be reviewing signs and situations of stress among American soldiers, sailors, marines and airmen serving more than one tour of duty in war zones. These soldiers should be required for their own benefit to undergo psychiatric evaluation before and after each tour. Reasons for our suggestions are many and sober-ing. First, several veterans of recent wars have been overheard to say "racism was rampant in Iraq and Mghanistan." They have stated that they actually "beard top generals refer to the Iraqi people as 'hajjis,' and have ignored soldiers who frequently referred to Iraqis and Mghanis as 'sand-niggers', 'camel-jockeys,' etc." Indeed, the Southern Poverty Law Center has been lobbying the Pentagon to address Issues such as white supremacist extremism that both the FBI and Department of Homeland Security have documented. Second, a federal appeals court recently ordered the Department of Veterans Aft' airs to overhaul its mental health care system after noting an average of 18 soldiers have committed sUicide every day. 1bird is an even more frightening prospect. If we don't take care of the problem, over there, it will certainly reappear over here! BY FRED HEARNS Have you ever wondered where the name eollege Hill" came from? Or do you know why neighborhood names in East Tampa have references to "heights"? And wby do so inany African Americans live in East Tampa? A recent study done through a graduate class in the University of South Florida's Department of Africana Studies addressed these questions. The results were presented Tuesday, March 13, 2012 to almost 100 attendees at the monthly meeting of the East Tampa Community Redevelopment Partnership (ETCRP) at Ragan Park. In 1823, white settle1 Robert Hackley chose the present site of the Tampa Convention Center to build a homestead. A year later, the U. S. Army built a fort at the same location and named it for the first commander-Ft. Brooke. The city grew around the fort, with most white settlers choosing to live in the area west and south of downtoWn. Many slaves lived near their owners, east of the fort (the Garrison, known today as Channelside) or in the center of tlie young town (the Scrub today's Encore Develop ment -formerly Central Park \TlUage). After the Civil War, when Blacks were free to leave their owners, many African Ameri cans settled north and east of downtown (as white neigh borhoods sprang up south and west of downtown). In the late 18708, Michigan Avenue (renamed Columbus Drive in the 1930s) became the first street that gave set tlers access to areas east of downtown. Grant Park, plat ted in 1909, was named for one of the early settlers there, Thomas B. Grant, and the Towne of East Tampa was es tablished in 1911. Beginning in the 1850s, Tampa was struck by a series of yellow fever plagues. The dreaded disease was spread to victims through mosquito bites, and was most prevalent in breeding areas near the Hillsborough River and where pools of rain water gathered. The disease killed hun dreds of Tampans in the 18oos. People began seeking high ground to Settle on, and Tampa Heights became the city's first subdivision in the 186os. It was chosen because the elevation (height) there was more than in downtown and south.Tam.pa: there was less of a chance of mosquito bites. The last major yellow fever outbreak was in 1887 and 1888. By then, many residents had settled in west and in south Tampa. And because segregation separated the races, most African Amer icans settled in a small section of central Tampa, north and east Tampa. In 1887, white minister A. F. -Randall decided to sell some of his land in East Tampa to Blacks who wanted to build their own homes. He proposed to leaders of the African Methodist Episcopal Zion (AMEZ) Church that if they would advertise his lots at up to $100 each in the "Star of Zion" church newspaper, he would donate land for an African American park and for a college in E8st Tampa College Hill. Randall promised to build the college near Lake Avenue and N. 22nd Street, and hire the first teacher at $100 a year. Unfortunately, the yel low fever plague of 1887 and 1888 (and perhaps intimida, tion from segregationists who opposed education for Blacks) killed plans to build the col lege. But the name "College Hill" stuck. And the advertisement for the Black subdivision drew many African Americans to Tampa. When they arrived; Black men found jobs as longshore men, in the phosphate lllines, as railroad workers, laborers and in the service industry. Many African .American women worked as domestics, cooks, laundresses, child nurses and The cigar industry also brought Blacks who spOke Spaiiish to Ybor City and West Tampa. Because of the HIGH ground that East Tampa sits on, neighborhoods adopted the names Belmont HEIGHTS, Jackson HEIGHTS, HIGHLAND Pines (platted in 1926 and in 1960), Rainbow HEIGHTS (platted in 1947), Eastern HEIGHTS (platted in 1948), Northview HILLS (platted in 1964) and, of course, College HILL. And while Blacks in East Tampa never got the college they were promised, George Schroeder Middleton High School opened in 1934 as the first building constructed as a senior high school for African Americans in Tampa. The park Randall envisioned became the 22nd Street Park, renamed for Tampa Urban m League pioneer Cyrus ye Green after he died in 1938. ,..

He is on the defensive about staying in Afghanistan after a U.S. soldier allegedly went on a killing spree against civilians. And back home, where the economy is king, everyone is talking about the price of gaso line. Which, as Pres. Obama can't say enough, no one can control right now. The Republican presidential candidates don't have to worry as much about all this because they don't have the responsi bility of governing -a luxury Pres. Obama likes to note, although he enjoyed the same when he was the challenger. The Republicans, though, are being drawn into events beyond their preferred mes sage of the day. For Pres. Obama, whose re-election bid looks rosier with every good month of job creation, the political risk in the least is that he gets knocked off message. That happened on Monday when Pres. Obama and the White House spent a lot of effort trying to focus on energy, but the dominant news was the horrific rampage in Afghanistan. The bigger worry for PRES. BARACK OBAMA Pres. Obama is that all the outside events conspire to sour the public mood, give people more to worry about and cre ate an opening for Republicans to challenge his leadership. Just because presidents may not be able to control prob lems does not mean they don't get blamed for them. Pres. Obama Campaign To Release Documentarv WASHINGTON President Barack Obama's re-election campaign plans to release a 17-minute documen tary next week about his first term in office. Campaign manager Jim Messina says the documentary was directed by Davis Guggenheim, whose credits include the Academy Awardwinning, "An Inconvenient Truth," about AI Gore's glob al-warming campaign. Messina says the documentary will, in his words, "put into perspective the enormous challenges that the nation faced when the presi dent took office and the strides we've made together." 1228 E. 7th Avenue,And 9flp Tampa, FL fl!iO LSancbezMoore@gmail.com I..Crim illaL Proeeedi.lp, Seallag Crbuiul Records aad Appeah-1207 N.

CREWS Sentinel StaffWriter As a student at King High School, Daryl Clark said he was always drawn to the entertainment industry. After graduating from high school, he attended Florida A&M University, grBduating in 1998 with a degree in Crimi. nal Justice. In 2000, Clark created Firestorm Entertainment. He and his wife, Lashonda, start off promoting local events. "We have a mobile DJ service, and that is the foundation of the company. I've been fortunate enough to find opportunities outside of Florida, but I decided to return to Tampa and get back to the basics. "My wife and I handle all the sche dulin g and meetings with potential clients. She also handles the business end, and I do the field work." Clark said they want to expand in the area and other counties, and also want to expand the services they offer. "Because of the weather DARYL AND LASHONDA CLARK here, we manage to stay busy "We're proud to have added our names to the list of vendors for the GOP convention in August."

She said things are a lot quieter and some places aren't as convenient to get to as they were in New York. "In New York, you could walk to the places you needed to go, like a store or a movie." Ms. Henry now has the task of being the owner of Jazzy Jewels, and the single parent of two children. She said she still makes trips to New York, but she prefers raising her kids in Florida.

None of this would have been possible without a lot of reading and study ing about the man and what his mission really was.'" Dowridge was so success ful in his portrayal, he's performed at the Straz Theater and other locations, and has been in demand to appear in theaters along the east coast. "This is not something I do just for Black History Month," said Dowridge. "This is something I do DONALD L OOWRIDGE "As Frederick Douglass" whenever I'm asked to appear. I enjoy it, and the kids and some adults enjoy it as well." Dowrldge decided a better way for him to educate peo ple on the life of Frederick Douglass was to create a trav eling museum. The museum contains artifacts, stam()S, pictures, maga zines and other items of Douglass and others who have made a serious impact on our Black history. I set the traveling museum up originally to be a feature for Black History Month, but on special occasions, I will move it around throughout the year," said Dowridge.

The Wedding It Cana The lesson recorded in the Gospel of John 2:1-12 tells the story of a wedding where Jesus performed His first mjracle. This story is more than Jesus turning water to wine. Any person who uses this-. verse as a mere justification to drink wine has diluted the message and significance of this story. This story provides great significance for every believer and provides hope for the sit uations of life. When reading this passage one will see the importance of having the right people in your life when the most valuable commodity is gone. In the time period of this wedding, wine was impOrtant. People drank wine not to be drunk, but it was consUm.ed to accommodate for poor water conditions of the day. The quality of the wine did speak to the quality of the festival being hosted. The wine here is not strong enough to get someone drunk off a few glasses. That being said, consider a greater revelation of the text. The passage says that Mary, the mother of Jesus, Jesus Himself, and His disciples were at the wedding (vv. 1, 2). These individuals were not party crashers, but they were selected and chosen guests. They were invited and welcomed guests. What is the significance of these individuals who were in vited? Mary was the mother, the person who birthed Jesus and knew Jesus. The disciples are those who were chosen and selected by Jesus. They knew Jesus and had already heard of the things which He had spoken. In your life you need to make certain .that you have people like this in your life. You need people who know Jesus and know what He has already done. You need peo ple who believe in the power of God that worketh through Christ. Why? They ran out of wine. Again, this is important. MOUNT PLEASANT M. B. CHURCH 2002 N.

That's how life is sometimes, the things that are vital and necessary some times run out. Sometimes pa tience, joy, peace, love, and gentleness run out. What makes the difference when they run out is having someone in your life who knows where you can get replenished. When your life is spiritually empty where do you tum? Mary went to Jesus. This is why having someone like Mary is important; she knew where to go to get the problem solved. Hear Jesus' response; "'woman what does this have to do with me?" (vs. 4). Consider Mary's response and instructions to the servants; "Do whatever He tell you to do" (vs. sJ. This shows her faith in Jesus. She knew that Jesus would re spond and solve the problem. She may not have known how, but she knew He would. In your life when it seems like your problem has nOthing to do with Jesus and there is no solution in sight, just trust Him. Not only must you trust crJf,S6 DSIW PRr;sPniS that He can, but you must !( obey Him no matter how crazy 3: the solution. :a:-They needed wine, but he :U told them to get Water (vs. 7). Q Can you imagine the nonver-.... bal response of these men? sn Imagine your response to some of the solutions you have .... heard1or your life's problems. N When Jesus spealcs a solution into your life, don't be concerned with how it sounds, just trust Him and do it. When you do, you will discover that what He provides is better than what you had the first time. rlliSCLalY j '::4 ___ ..,.. -.--. crLI'JIRA111Q QlR 3RD MARCH 15. 16 a ta-m 111URSDAY, 3115 07:30P.M.

Hair Stvlist savs Patience Kev to success 3: > :::D From left to right: Vanessa Alexander, Reiko Gilchrist (styland Sandra Stergan. BY LEON B. CREWS Sentinel Staff Writer Growing up, Sandra Stergan wanted to be either a model or stewardess. "I never actually pursued a career as a model or stewardess, but I had always been involved in hair styling, I decided to get more serious about it," said Ms. Stergan. That was 25 years ago, and after studying at Avanti Hair Studio, Ms. Stergan decided it was time for her to get busy styling hair. Over the years, Ms. Stergan has worked at salons in the area, and in 2001, she decided to open her own business. "When I opened my first salon, I realized I needed to know more about the indus try, and spend time establishing a clientele. So, three years later, I went back to working at other salons. "I decided to get more into the educational part of the industry, and did a lot of studying and reading." Ms. Stergan said that's when she started telling her clients what they needed to do to properly care for their hair, and that was very exciting. "I attended a lot of hair shows and classes, but once I got back into styHng hair, I didn't have to attend as many. I have taught classes at Manhattan Hair Studio, and later at Shear Excellence." Ms. Stergan said for any. one considering getting into this industry, she advises them first not to get discouraged. "Success is not going to come quickly. It takes a year to get your clientele estab lished, and start showing a real profit. "Once you step back and see how much money you have to spend on products and equipment, you11 begin to realize how patient you have to be." On Sunday, March 4th, Ms. Stergan hosted the grand opening of Showtime Beauty Salon on 34th Street, and said it was a blessing from God.

Deaanment 01 Justice Blocks Texas Voter ID Attorney General Eric Holder has been a sharp critic of laws requiring people to present photo identification before they vote. The Department of Justice is blocking a Texas law that would require all voters to present photo identification to vote, likely further fueling an intense partisan debate on this issue In a letter to Texas offi cials, Thomas Perez, head of DOJ's Office of Civil Rights, argued that the law could disproportionately im pact Latino voters, who are more likely than white voters to not currently have driver's licenses or other kinds of photo identification. "Hispanic registered vot ers are more than twice as likely as nonHispanic registered voters to lack such identification," Perez wrote. The Department of Justice also blocked South Carolina's voter identification law in December, arguing it would disproportionally affect Black and elderly voters. South Carolina is appeal ing the ruling, a move Texas is very likely to make as well. Arkansas, the state that is infamously known for its harsh segregationist past and home to the capital that gave nine Black young people hell for daring to integrate Little Rock Central High School more than so years ago, is in position to see a Black man leading its House of Repre sentatives. State Rep. Darrin Williams (D-Little Rock) was elected to as speaker' delegate by his peers by a vote of 54-46. Williams, ran against Rep. Terry Rice, R-Wal dron. Both SfATEREP. DARRIN WIIJ.IAMS rilen promised bipartisanship ap proaches to the role with Williams calling on mem bers to avoid "Washington D.C.-style politics." NY Man Charged With Beheading Girlfriend NEW YORK --A man has been charged with cutting off his pregnant girlfriend's head on a New York City rooftop in 1989. Philip Ward, 45, pleaded not guilty Monday to murdering Veronica Bowen. Ward is in prison for killing the woman who be came his girlfriend after Bowen's death. Although he entered a not guilty plea, prosecutors said he re cently con fessed to a crime in which he'd long been PHIUPWARD under suspicion. Ward's attorney, Franklin Rothman, said he was helping authorities, spurred by a desire to build a better relationship with his and Bowen's two children. Poor Parents Give Up Custodv 01 Kids For A Bener Education Tanya McDowell, the homeless Black Connecticut mother who was charged with felony larceny last year after she was caught lying about her home address so that her 6-year-old oould at tend an elementary school in a good district, was slapped with a 12-year sentence earlier this month. The Mom, who only wanted her young son to get the best education that she could provide, is also in debted to the state for $6,200. What is the fine for? It is for "stealing" educa tional services for her child. McDowell is just one of countless parents who live in impoverished areas across the country, yet still want their children to have a TANYAMCDOWELL fighting chance at getting an educa tion that is solid. The inequalities in educa tion among the haves and have-nots has been the sub ject of many staunch debates throughout the years. McDowell's cause celebre is a clear-cut case that depicts the gaping disparities in both the wealth and quality of ed ucation across this country. COmmerolal ...............
