Nr--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------0 Features Mom Needs _Help To Get life Former Belm.ont Heights linle league Coach Passes Saving Surgerv For Daughter ic( BY IRIS B. HOLTON C Sentinel City Editor a: LL Mrs. Roslean Payne said her oldest child, 17-year-old Kendra Love, has Sickle Cell Ane mia. Her son, Jonathan Payne, Jr., died from the disease at 15 months. She did not know that she was pregnant at the time of his death. But, she gave birth to Jonel Payne on April1, 2000, and immediately learned that her daughter was born with the right side of her heart missing. Within two weeks of her birth, Jonel had endured two heart surgeries. A stint was placed in her chest Since then, she had been required to have "Cath surgeries," (a procedure that allows doctors to check her heart without having to do conven tional surgery). Payne said she was informed on February 26th, that the stint is broken and must be replaced. In addition to it being broken, Mrs. Payne said the manufacturers discontinued it in 2004. "She has always been taken to Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children in Orlando. But, the doctors said the doctors who performed the original surgery should perform this surgery." Jonel Payne, who needs heart surgery, is shown with her older sister, Kendra, who suffers from Sickle Cell Anemia Disease. that she can take care of injured soldiers. The problem is, those doctors are now located c in Ohio. Mrs. Payne and Jonel must travel to St. a: Jude's Hospital, in Cleveland for the surgery. Mrs. LL Payne said she must raise at least $5,000 for the 0 trip because Medicaid will not cover out-of-state medical bills. Jonel is a 4th grade student at Robles Elementary School. Mrs. Payne said because of their unique illnesses, both girls are in and out of the hospital and she can usually handle it. However, this time she is hoping the community will help. Mrs. Payne, who is a full time student at San ford Brown Institute, said she and her husband are separated and he lives iJJ Melbourne. She said he is involved in her life, but the family still needs help. > Mrs. Payne said she was given a date of April 27th to raise the money. "They (doctors) won't U) even schedule it until I have raised some money for W the surgery, she said. i= During a telephone interview, Jonel said she ij: wants to become a nurse when she grows up so Anyone wishing to contact Mrs. Payne can send her an e-mail at roslean@sb-tampa.com.

He was 77 Coach James was a 1954 graduate of Middleton High School, and went on to attend Florida A&M University. His wife, Jacquelyn, said her husband was a gifted athlete, even while attending. Booker T. Washington. Although he coached baseball, the sport he played in school was basketball. Mrs. James said her husband got involved in little league baseball when his sons, Marlon and Darryl, started playing. "He coached them, and Marlon was on the first team that went to Williamsport for the Little League World Se ries," said Mrs. James.

Coach James retired as a truck driver after spending 13 years at the Westinghouse plant. Mrs. James said more than anything, he enjoyed vis iting the sick and shut-ins as a deacon at First Baptist Church of College Hill. "He was really deeply in volved in church activities, and as' an international mason, he was Worshipful Master of Jim Wilson Lodge #121 ." Mrs. James said her husband suffered from a series of ailments over the years, and over the past two weeks, he "COACH" ANDREW JAMES had developed a terrible cough. "He was told years ago he had a heart murmur, but it was treated and never caused him any problems. "On the day he passed, we were sitting in our family room talking when he complained about his chest hurting. I asked if he wanted to go to the hospital, or have his granddaughter come over since she's a nurse. Later we did call an ambulance, and he passed away at the hospital." Mrs. James said they were married for 54 years, and were looking forward to their 55th anniversary on April 28th. Coach James' eldest son, Andrew James, Jr. (Two Man) passed away in 2009.

., Teen Dead For lore Than 12 Hours BetOre Dad Notified 3: )> BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel City Editor More details surrounding the death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin were re vealed during a telephone conference Thursday morning. The conference call, hosted by the National News paper Publishers Association and included Ms. Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin, the parents of Martin; NNP A Chairman Cloves Campbell, Attorney Benjamin Crump, Rev. AI Sharpton, George Curry, Rev. R. B. Holmes, and numerous Black publishers from around the country. (The Florida Sentinel is a member of the NNPA.) Tracy Martin gave the following account of how he learned of his son's death. He had last spoken witli him ear lier in the afternoon on Sun day, February 26th. Martin stated that he had gone out to dinner that evening. When he returned home and Trayvon was not there, he assumed that his 20year-old nephew had picked him np. "I called his cell phone and it went to voice mail. Then I called my nephew's phone and it went to voice mail. I assumed he was with my nephew. "The next morning when he hadn't made it home, I called my nephew and he said Trayvon wasn't with him. The first call I made was to Department of juvenile Justice to see if he had ar rested. "The third call I made was to the Sheriffs Office non emergency number to file a missing person's report. "We were supposed to be leaving that morning (return ing to Miami). The dispatcher asked a few questions and about five minutes later, called back and asked about the clothes he was wearing. The dispatcher said someone be coming out to me." Parents 'One Million Hood,ie March' BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel City Editor Six weeks ago, Trayvon Martin was an average teenager living in Miami. How ever, in the wake of his prema ture death, the call for accountability has reached epi demic proportions. On Saturday, concerned parents from the bay area will host a "One Million Hoodie March" in memory of the slain teenager. It will take place from 11 a.m. untilt p.m., at the intersection of N. Dale Mabry and W. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd. Ms. Kryst8.1 Bowens, Ms. Alexis Allen, and George Faulkner are some of the organizers. Ms. Bowens said, "We are just a group of people with children of our own. We are doing this to show support for Trayvon's family "We are asking everyone to come out, wear their hoodies, bring a bag of Skittles, a can of sweet tea, and their signs. We are all working parents and couldn't attend any of the events being held in Sanford," Ms. Allen said. TraYv-on Martin's grandmother is Tampa native, Mrs. Marian Spotford Evans. His great grandmother is the late Mrs. Audrey Spotford. Tampa NAACP Chaners Buses The Hillsborough County Branch of the NAACP will charter two buses to travel to Sanford. President Carolyn Collins, president, said the Sanford City Commissioners will hold their regular meeting on Monday, March 26th. She stated that the organization will charter only one bus and seating wiP be on a first come, first serve basis. She also stated that the or ganization is attempting to find out the time the meeting will be held. Anyone wishing to attend the meeting is asked to call or visit the local branch office at 308 E. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., to sign up. The second bus will leave Tampa on Saturday, March 31. The State NAACP, the State Chapter of the Black Caucus, and several other organizations will hold a rally" on that day Mrs. Collins said the lineup for the march will begin at Crooms Academy on 13th Street and will end at the San ford Police Station, where the rally will take place. For additional information, contact the NAACP Office at (813) 234-8683. Councilman Reddick To Hold RaiiV On Travvon Martin Case Tampa City Gouncilman Frank Reddick will host a rally at the 34th Street of God, 3000 N. 34th Street on Tuesday, March 27, 2012, 6 p. m. Councilman Reddick has invited local leaders and the community to join him in requesting the Florida Attor ney General and Department of Justice to take action in this case. Ms. Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin, parents ofTrayvon Martin. Martin said three police cars came to the residence. The detective spoke and asked if he had a recent photograph ofhisson. "I had just taken one of him early in the week, and showed it to him. He went to his car and retrieved a folder and asked if he could come inside. "He pulled out a photo graph of my pride and joy (Trayvon) laying on the ground dead. His eyes weren't all the way closed and his mouth wasn't all the way closed. From that point, it has been a nightmare," Martin said. Trayvon's mother, Ms. Sybrina Fulton, said it seems like an awful dream. "The pain gcies and then it comes back. My heart is heavy and !still cry. It's just difficult each day to get by." Attorney Benjamin Crump, who is representing the family, said three inde pendent witnesses, two white women and a Hispanic woman, all gave accounts of the shooting and said they heard Trayvon crying for help. "The police are trying to intimidate the witnesses. .. The police said the witness statements were inconsistent. "They never did a drug or background check on Zimmerman," Attorney Crump said. Attorney Crump further stated that George Zimmerman was questioned for about two hours after the shooting before he was re leased. But the police had not released any additional infor mation about the case. He also said drug; alcohol screen ings, and a background check were done on Trayvon. However, no such tests were performed on Zimmerman. Former Governor David Patterson also pointed out that no one ::1: checked to see if Zimmer-N man had a permit to have the gun that night. However, he said the rules of the neighbor-hood watch is that the person cannot carry a gun while on duty. Attorney Crump stated when asked if anyone knew where Zimmerman was, he said they were not sure. Rev. AI Sharpton said he believes people from all over the country are reacting to the death of the teenager because, "We all see Trayvon in ourselves. We are born as suspects instead of citizens. Trayvon was executed as a suspect. This brought to the surface what we fear for our selves and our children." Rev. Sharpton further stated that no one has asked for rallies to be held. But feel that the people are marching for themselves because the y ., can identify with Trayvon. 6 Rev. Sharpton further :!! said, "They (city officials) C think it's a small town and )> they are playing games. We're here to let them know they Z (Trayvon's parents) they have people all over the conn-m try and we've got their backs." 1 Wednesday night, three of the.

However, Chief Bill Lee h as not publicly stated why he didn't attend the meeting.

"I have no reason to believe there is any corruption or that there's been any inappropriate behavior, so I am standing by our police chief." anornev onen nmellne Attorney Benjamin Crump disputed the claim of there not being enough evi dence to arrest Zimmerman. Attorney Crump used the 9-1-1 calls as a timeline and talked to Martin's 16-yearold girlfriend who was talking to Trayvon at the time of his death. Attorney Crump stated that Trayvon talked with his girlfriend in Miami as he walked to the store and on his return. During a taped interview, she related that the teenager had sought shelter after it began to rain. When the rain slacked, he began walking again. As they talked, Trayvon told her that he was being fol lowed. She told him to run, and at one point, Trayvon thought he had outrun the man in the vehicle. Zimmerman made sev eral calls to the dispatcher prior to the confrontation. In one of those calls, he was in structed not to leave his vehi cle. In another, he was told not to follow the teenager after it was learned that he had left his vehicle. Attorney Crump said Trayvon had no idea who the man following him was. The last call between Trayvon and the young lady was logged at 7:12 p.m and it lasted for four minutes. Dur. ing the call, Attorney Cnunp said the young lady overheard Trayvon being ap proached by Zimmerman. Trayvon asked why was he following him twice. Zimmerman in terin allegedly asked Trayvon twice what he was doing around there twice. Trayvon never broke the connection with the girl and she reportedly heard a portion of the altercation before the call disconnected. The call ended at 7:16p.m., and the first officer arrived on the scene at 7:17p.m., Attorney Crump said. "There are three independent witnesses who don't have a dog in this fight. This cannot be allowed to stand. "Seven people called 9-1-1. The dots have all been con nected. Police need to arrest this killer. He killed this child in cold blood and he's allowed to be free." Attorney Crump further stated that--he would give the taped interview with the girl to the Justice Department be cause he doesn't trust the San. ford Police Department. Calling Pollee The Seminole County Sheriffs Office recently re leased six 9-1-1 calls Zimmerman has made in the seven months prior to the shooting. In four of the calls, Zimmerman reported suspicious Black men in his neighborhood. The Sheriffs Office said Zimmerman has placed 46 calls to them in the last 11 years. Celebrities Go Public With Suppon F Travven Martin Campaign SANFORD, FL -An ex plosive petition on change.org started by the parents of Trayvon Martin now has more than 548,292 signatures from people around the world. It is quickly gaining the sup port of musicians, professional athletes, film industry repre sentatives, and numerous other celebrities online. The petition, started just days ago by Trayvon's par ents, Tracy Martin and Sybrina Fulton, calls on Florida District Attorney Norman Wolfinger to bring charges against George Zimmerman, the self-proclaimed "neighborhood watch captain" who allegedly confessed to po lice that he killed Trayvon Martin. Police have so far de clined to charge Zimmerman with any crime. A number of international celebrities have taken to Twit ter and Facebook to spread the word about the petition and Trayvon's parents' struggle for justice. Musicians like Cher, Wyclef Jean, Talib Kweli, Clay Aiken, Monica, Janelle Monae, and Raheem Devaughn; film in dustcy leaders like Spike Lee, Mia Farrow, Taraji P GEORGE ZIMMERMAN Admitted to shooting .. unarmed teenager Henson, D. L. Hughley, and Michael Moore and sports stars like Chad Ochocinco have all tweeted their support for the petition on Change.org. Other celebrities who have promoted the petition online include John Legend, Russell Simmons, Big Boi, Chuck D, Questlove ofThe Roots, Estelle, Blair Underwood, Alyssa Milano, Kerry Washington and Gabrielle Union. Trayvon Martin was a top trending topic on TWitter at several points over the weekend and on Monday. Russell Simmons tweeted on Thursday: "Let's seek justice for Trayvon Martin. We will fight for a so ciety that is compassionate and loving, not one that pre judges and stereotypes." Fells Olin IIIV8SIIIadonlnto Travven Martin Case Late Monday night, the U.S. Department of Justice announced that it will open an investigation into the murder of Trayvon Martin. After the Sanford Police Department lied to Trayvon's family and said that his killer George Zimmerman had no criminal record, they said they felt betrayed by authori ties. When the horrifying and heartbreaking 911 tapes were released, and we heard Trayvon begging for his life, the department's statement that Zimmerman's vigilante execution was in self-defense was also proven to be a lie. In the wake of their continued unprofessionalism, the family requested that the FBI take over the investigation and the U.S. DOJ responded. The Justice Department's Civil Rights Division, the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Mid dle District of Florida, and the FBI opened an investigation into the facts and circum stances of the shooting death ofTrayvon Martin. The department will con duct a thorough and inde. pendent review of all of the evidence and take appropriate action at the conclusion of the investigation. NORTON BONAPARTE, JR.

I The Stand Your Ground Law lust Gal I Yes, we vehemendy opposed the "Stand Your Ground Law" when it was enacted by the Florida Legislature in 2005. We oppose it even more now. The cold-blooded shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin by a vigilante in a gated Sanford community is a glaring example of racial profiling. That a 28-year-old so-called volunteer neighborhood crime watch deputy with a gun would confront a defenseless teenager, question the teenager's "right" to be in a gated community, but on the premise of self-defense take that child's life, is simply too much for any free and just society to bear. There is nq excuse for racial stupidity. Indeed, the few Black folks who can currendy afford to live behind gates should begin to worry whether their sons are safe from profiling. For, most certainly, had young Trayvon been white, he would still be alive, today. We call on the NAACP, the National Urban League, the FBI, U. S. Justice Department, Florida Department of Law Enforcement, and the Florida Legislature to deal with this disgrace, which has caused 38 Floridians to lose their lives since 2005, in the name of security and self defense. And on this demand, we shall stand ourground! J. D. Alexander Strikes Again Who is J.D. Alexander, and why is he targeting Hillsborough County? J. D. Alexander is a Florida legislator and the Senate budget chairman. The same J. Alexander tried to slit USF's throat by cutting it in half in order to make a new university to be placed in the middle of a cow pasture. J.D. Alexander also almost single-handedly brought about the closing of one of the state of Florida's most successful corrections facilities located in Hillsborough County. J.D. Alexander, Florida's Darth Vader, developed a negative love-Jones for USF campus when it came to the question of whether it should go amoeba-like and divide itself into a Polytechnic University, which would be placed (where else?) in Alexander's backyard. After a bout of booing and hissing and threatening to cut USF; s budget by more than so percent, J D. got his way (almost), and USF's president Judy Genshaft was lucky to have survived by the h airs on her chinnychin-chin. But Florida's Vader wasn't finished. Sources say he (J.D.) was behind another push to see the Hillsborough Correctional Institution in Riverview go down because it wasn't making enough money. N ever mind the fact its track record on rehabilitating inmates was a national, if not international treasure. Despite the fact other legislators supporting it, His Majesty Alexander would answer, "We all can say we like to do things. But if you don't have the money in the budget to do it, it doesn't really mean something." (Say what?) A famous quote fits J.D. Alexander by Lord Acton "Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely." Your Ground' law A license To Murder F rom the day Florida passed the 'Stand Your Ground' law, I have been suspicious of and disturbed by the law The recent murder of a 17-year-old African American youth has confirmed all of my fears and concerns. I feel very safe in saying that Florida's 'Stand Your Ground' law is no more than a license to commit murder. Under this law, all one has to do is to claim that they were in fear of bodily harm or fear for their lives and they can kill the alleged per son. Dead men tell no tales. In many of these Stand Your Ground' murders, it is the murderer's word against that of the dead person. In Sanford, FL, a non Black killed an unarmed Black youth with a 9mm gun, claiming self-defense and was never so much as put in the back of the .in ves tigating officer's police cruiser. All he had to do was cla i m self-defense and stroll casu ally to his car and ride off in the night a free murderer. The Sanford police chief used the 'Stand Your Ground' law to explain a murderer's stroll to freedom. One former state attorney said the 'Stand Your Ground law is one of the dumbest laws eVer put on the books. Another one said that all the 'Stand Your Ground law does is enc ourage people to kill one another. I agree with these two statements whole-heartedly. Stand Your Ground' shoot-., ::D ings have tripled in numbers since the law was passed. People have shot and killed )> people who they would not have shot if it had not been :::1: for the Stand Your Ground' law. These people know that the law is a license for them ..... to kill and be protected N under the law. 'Stand Your Ground' law or not, if a Black person kills a white person, they had better have a lawyer and a bail bonds person on hand. The Black person needs these two people because for sure, they are going to jail. They may get out, but they are going to jail. To make matters worse, lawmakers who helped to pass this law got on national television and called the law all kinds of evil things. Some even said the law has to be repealed. This is a claim that is very easy to agree with. The killing in Sanford makes a mockery out of the law. It clea rly illustrates that the law is both ari incentive and a license to kill. I agree that the Sanford killer should stand his ground. His ground should be in the mid dle of a locked-tight jail cell. ., i z m r m Letter To The Editor Profit Or Production: Will The Truth Please Stand Upl z Childhood Early Learning Family Homes, Exist?. Centers And ChildcareWhy Do They First, before anyone jumps to concluSions, let me clarify one thing. There are many privately and publicly owned Early Learning Centers and Family Childcare Homes that are doing an excellent job, when it comes to production (preparing and setting the foundation of learning, briefly stated). To you, I tip my. hat! This editoriallett.er is not for you. On the one hand, we have those who are just in the business for the profit. "Who are those?'" you might ask. I am glad you did. These are the centers that circumvent the childcare licensing regulations, you know, those who move children from room to room to give the illusion of being in ratio. These are the centers that move employee files if files are not up-to-date. These are the' centers who really serve oodles noodles (with the high sodium content), until the food inspector comes. These are the centers who fail to invest in purchasing quality childcare outdoor and indoor equip-. ment. Safety is only a concern if licensing has written you up or a child gets hurt and the family has decided to sue. These are .the ones who only see parents as paying customers or problem makers, not decision makers or helpers. These are the centers who are understaffed and have staff with very minimum or no experience. I know-it's cheaper to pay a less qualified person. These are the centers that don't purchase a compatible curriculum with enough materials for eve-ryone. One book will do and the others can make copies. These are the centers that have no construe-. tion paper, no pencils, no paints; no puzzles or puzzles with pieces missing; no books, or torn, dirty books, no paint easels, no off the floor cots, no computers in the classrooms, no music in the classroom, or one sound system for the entire school, no outside, well-kept shady area for play, no outside tables, no outside water fountain and the list goes on. These are the ones that only go on one field trip a year, forget about experiencing the environment around you, you know like picking strawberries, visiting a dog pound, or something that is uncommon to their environment. Now, you tell me, is it for profit or production? The cost is great when it comes to owning and operating a childcare center or family childcare home. Nothing thatis worth something comes cheap. The educating of our young children between the ages of o-s is a very serious, but wonderful experience and opportunity. It's an opportunity that comes with more that "profit" or "finances." It's an opportunity to share the positives of learning. You tell me, "Profit or Production?"

Local ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------0 Activist: Plans Tied Up Fo. r west Tampa Pharmacv BY LEON B. CREWS Sentinel Staff Writer Growing up in West Tampa, Huey Johnson remembers making trips to the nearby Eagle Pharmacy on Howard Avenue for family members. He also remembers going on his own for the sundry items. For decades, Eagle Drugs was a convenient source for the residents of West Tampa, especially the seniors. However, the pharmacy was closed almost 30 years ago, and nothing was ever done to replace it. Johnson has initiated a campaign to get a pharmacy back on Howard Avenue or Main Street. "The seniors in this area have to either have a car, catch a bus, or get someone to take them to the pharmacy for their medication. That's not fair to them, and I'm part of a group that is trying to get a pharmacy they can walk to. "My efforts to get this done have been met with bureau-HUEY JOHNSON cracy and red tape." Johnson said economic growth in West Tampa is cru cial, and he's spoken to city officials who told him about an economic package for West Tampa. "When I spoke to some city officials, they told me there were still a lot of things -that will need to be done before any economic comes to West Tampa. Then, they brought up the River Walk Project. "Why should we have to wait for this project to happen? Why can't we be given what we need to create eco nomic growth in our commu nity? These are questions I've asked, and I get getting the same old answers. I think we deserve to know how the city plays a role in helping the development of new businessesinWestTampa." Johnson said every week, he reads stories about funds being allocated for other projects, but he's yet to see the source of that revenue. "We are well aware that certain powers want African Americans out of. West Tampa, and that will start with the displacement of the residents at the .North Boulevard Homes and Bethune Hi-Rise." Johnson said he's spoken to Councilman Fr,ank Reddick, and was told he'd support anyone who applies for Community Develop-ment Block Grant (CDBG) funds. 5852 -NORTH DALE MABRY, 2 MILES NORTH OF RAYMOND JAMES STADIUM Program Helps Give Youth Dance Teams An Outlet BY LEON B.

c a: Woman Received Confirmations That Plav was Anointed Bv God LL BY GWEN HAYES Sentinel Editor Since Joyce Cooper has been working on writing, developing and producing a gospel play on Queen Esther, she has been plagued with many But, at the same time when she'd decide to give up, God would step in and show her a sign that 'He' had anointed this work. "Woman of God Queen Esther" will be presented this weekend, March 24th (7 p m.) and March 25th (3 p. m.) at Countryside High School, 3000 S. R. 580, Clearwater (33761). The director left, some of the cast members backed out c and there were other obsta-ii: cles. Shortly after she received z direction to. go ahead with c( the stage play oq Queen Esther, she received a letter C from one of the television f3 evangelists. In the information sent, there were DVDs > for sale on Queen Esther. a: w > w c w en ::::; D :::l Q. z i= w ..J ..J :::l D MS. JOYCE COOPER Listening at TV that night, the minister preached on the same subject. Later, attending a women's conference in Sarasota, the scheduled speaker could not attend, but the person that came spoke on Queen Esther and followed with another sermon on King David. That's what her second production will be about. When the Lord gave me the vision last summer, he gave me Queen Esther and King David," she explained. Earlier this month, she saw in the news where the Prime Minister of Israel gave to President Obama a book on Esther "to show that God can make a way out of no way," she said. During rehearsals, Ms. Cooper needed the words to a Hebrew song; she knew the tune, but not the words. Ironically, a young man in Clearwater knew the song she referenced and had someone to email her words to that song, which made the play complete. The play has a cast of about 18 members. Melvin Coleman is the director and. Nate Mitchell is the music director. Queen Esther is played by Allison)tanford and Queen Vashti is played by Lynn Lumsten. Mose Smith is one of the singers. The play will feature the Tabernacle Dancers of Beit Tehila of Brandon. "I've been through a lot putting this all together, but I'm just being obedient," she said.

"That was my interaction," Mrs. Obama said. "It felt so good." The.

The Truth Back Pain Part I Every single day, almost all of us put strain on our backs performing routine behaviors and motions. Over time, pick ing up your shoes the flopr or throwing .a bag over your shoulder won't be so easy, and may be accompanied by some serious back pain. But with some awareness of how your daily tasks can affect your back, a11;d a few simple changes, you can prevent yourself from suffering through one of the most common chronic pains. A Firm Mattress Is Best For Your Back. _Myth. A superfirm mattress might actually be the source of your back problems. A too-soft mattress won't offer enough support for your back. On the other hand, a rockhard one can increase pressure on the spine. Trying to find a mattress to accommodate your back problem can seem like looking for a needle in the haystack. If an expen sive adjustable mattress isn't' an option, look into modify ing your current mattress. Consider buying a mattress pad to soften a too-firm mat tress or a bed board to add some rigidity to ori.e that's too soft. Lifting Heavy Objects Will Strain Your Back. Myth. It's not necessarily how much you lift, but how you lift that makes the differ ence. -The proper form to avoid injury is to: keep your back straight, grab the object, bring it close to your body, and then stand. You should be lifting with your lower body muscles (thigh and butt). Back Pain Isn't Always Caused By An IJVury .. Fact. According to a study in the Journal of Advanced Nursing, women who feel overwhelmed at home or work are more two times more likely to have lower back pain. Mental stress causes mus cle fibers to tighten and over time it wears those fibers down and leaves you at greater risk for injury. What's more is that your body's natural response to stress is to increase muscle tension which makes existing back problems even worse. When you feel stress com ing on, take some time out to relax. A hot bath or shower can relax your back muscle fibers. To boost the stress-re lief benefits even more, use lavender-scented bath beads or soap. The calming scent lowers levels of the stress hor mone cortisol. About in 12 African Americans carry the Sickle Cell trait, and the disease occurs in about 1 in evecy soo African American births.

Especially fE during the seasons in your c life when you feel like your dreams have no meaning, > your plans are all unaccomplished goals and your life is en a mission impossible. Tell yourself that despite what it t-looks like, I will ACT NOW! fj: "I will act now. I will act w now. I will act now. Henceforth, I will repeat c these words each hour, each w day, every day, until the words become as much a :::; habit as my breathing, and the action which follows a. z becomes as instinctive as the blinking of my eyelids. With these words I can condition my mind to perform every action necessary for my success. I will act now. I will repeat these words again and again arid again. I will walk where failures fear to walk. I will work when failures seek rest. I will act-now for now is all I have. Tomorrow is the day reserved for the labor of the lazy. I am not lazy. Tomorrow is the day when failure will succeed. I am not a failure. I will act now. Success will not wait. If I delay, success will become wed to another and lost to me forever. This -iS the time.

Box 21472 Tampa, FL 33622 minimum specifications for memory and CPU speed, my recommendation is to purchase a new computer instead of upgrading. Fin_ally, what's in Windows &Is-Almost Here -What Will That Mean To Youil Windows 8 to make you want and need it? Well, to tell you the truth, I'm not a big fan of what I've seen thus far from Windows 8. Windows 8 is a phone or tablet operating system. So if you are getting ready to purchase a Windows tablet, you should love Windows 8. You may have heard within the last c;ouple of weeks that a new Windows version, Windows 8, has now been made available for consumer preview. Windows 8 is now available, free of charge, to download from the Microsoft website (see http:/ I windows.mjcrosoft.com/en-US/wjn dows-8/download). So what's in it and what does this mean to the aver age computer user and how can you prepare? That's what I'll discuss in today's column. So as an average user, why should I care? Well, if you are still running Windows XP, you should start getting ready to upgrade. Microsoft originally posted a date of 4{14{2009 as the end of support for Windows XP. That date was extended to 4/8{2014,-but I'm sure there will not be another. extension after Windows 8 is officially released. That will mean that it will become increas ingly to attach new hardware to your Windows XP computer or obtai.D. soft ware to run on it. For instance, you may not be able to 'run new releases of Microsoft Office or even new versions of software like Photoshop. So what should you upgrade to? The answer to that depends on your current system. Windows 8 sys tem requirements are pretty much the same as those for Windows 7: Processor 1 &iga-hertz (GHz) or faster; RAM -1 gigabyte (GB) (32-bit) or 2 GB (64-bit); Hard disk space -16 GB (32-bit) or 20 GB (64-bit); Graphics cardMicrosoft DirectX 9 graphics device or higher. All computers that were built to run Vista or Windows 7 will be able to run Windows 8. But if your computer was built for Windows XP, you'll either have to upgrade it (not re commended), or purchase a new computer: Upgrading may be feasible if'you only have to upgrade one c'omponent to make your computer compatible with Windows 8, but because you'll_be much hap pier with at least twice the But if you are going to be using a desktop, a laptop, or a non-touchscreen device, I'm not sure if Windows 8 offers anything except maybe a little frustration from having to find things all over again and missing those familiar common Windows tools like the minimize but. ton, maximize button, and the all powerful '"x"' close button. I also ran into problems installing basic things like my printer, but i'm sure that drivers for my printer will be : available by the time Windows 8 is officially released: Ralph, The Computer Guy.
