features Victims II Illegal Bun llliections warn Othen 11 Danger BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel City Editor For the past three years, I.L Mrs. Andrea Lee-Mingo has battled health issues. But unlike some illnesses, doctors are unsure of how to treat her. Mrs. Lee-Mingo and Ms. zakia Teagle are best friends, and until three years ago, were average young women, who were relatively healthy, and had plans for the future. How. ever, a decision to enhance their assets, has permanently changed their lives. From the onset, their sto ries are identical, and only dif fer in the aftermath. Mrs. Lee-Mingo and Ms. Teagle said they learned that Ms. Sharhonda Lindsay was giving butt enhancement injec tions from a friend of a friend. Prior to having the proce dure, the women said they re searched it on the Internet and learned the chemical, Hydro-gel, wa s supposed to be a C water-based solution The y felt a: it was safe. I.L c They said Ms. Lindsay Z had injected four people the c( week before and had to obtain C( more of the solution. It also C had to be mixed with other UJ w t-w c w % UJ :::i m a. z ffi ...J ...J m chemicals. On January 29, 2009, They met at. Mrs. Lee-Mingo's home. Ms. Teagle had 10 in jections in each hip and Mrs. Lee-Mingo had 20 injections ineachhip. "She did Zalda first and by the time she finished with me, Zakia got sick and started vomiting black stuff. I called an ambulance. Later, I was in the middle of taking my shower when I started getting sick," Mrs. Lee-Mingo said. Both were transported to Town N' Country Hospital within a half hour of each other. "They asked for a urine_ sample and when I looked; I saw nothing but blood At the hospital, they told us we had to make a police report," Mrs. Lee-Mingo said. I asked them to take me to where Zalda was and they did. I thought they were going to treat and release us. We didn't realize it was that serious," she Both "{Omen were in the hospital for a month. From that point their stories differ Mrs. Lee-Mingo said "The doctors wei:e afraid to touch us because they didn't know what she had injected us with and it was still in our bod ies. All of my organs shut down and I was placed on life sup port. The hospital told my MRS. ANDREA LEE-MINGO & ZAKIA TEAGU: mother to make funeral arrangements because I wasn't going to make it through the night." Mrs. Lee-Mingo said that instead of making funeral arrangements, her mother went to church and she survived. Three years later, she said the injection areas are hard to the touch and she's tiliilg a lot of medication. She is in a lot of pain but the medication makes her sleep She said the doctors are afraid to remove the ob jects. In an attempt to go on with her life Mrs. Lee-Mingo married in September 2009 and has since adopted a baby. She stated that she has been turned down for disability and continues to try and work. Once a month, she must go to the emergency room to re ceive muscle relaxer injections. "We are trying to get our *ELECT* ARI3ARA TWINE County Court Judge IXl1Jerienee.

Ms. Teagle said that though she was in the hospital for a month, she did not suffer renal failure in the beginning. However, renal failure for her came about three years later. She was recently released after a month in the hospital. "I had the renal failure dqe to the toxins in my body. You don't know what kind of affect those toxins will hitve or how long it Will take before some thing happens. I'm telling everyone not to do what we did. I don't recommend any type of cosmetie procedure even by professiol_!als." Ms. Teagle said they are still trying to receive restitution and although Ms. Lindsay was ordered to pay restitution they receive $7 or $9 a month. "The latest thing that happened in court is that she (Ms. Lindsay) is trying to get out of paying restitution she said. Ms. Lindsay was arrested after the police reports were filed. She was charged with two counts of practicing medicine without a license. Last year, Ron O'Neal Morris, 30, was arrested in Broward County and charged with practicing medicine without a license Last month, Morris was arrested again after 3 other victims came for ward. Familv Disputes Accounts 11 Shooting BY LEON B. CREWS Sentinel Staff Writer On Monday morning Tampa Police said Quintavius Moore, 16, walked into Baker s Mini Market on Armenia Av enue and asked the owner, Taquanda Baker, 32, for change. According to Baker, Moore returned 30 minutes later armed with a gun and pointed it at her. Baker told police she pulled her handgun froll) her pocket and accidentally fired a shot into the ground, then fired a second shot at Moore, hitting him. After the shooting, Baker said she ran out of the store and flagged down an officer who was driving by. Moore was transported to a local hospita,l and was pronQ_unced dead at 4:3Q p. m. Baker, told police she thought Moore fired q t her, but later realized that in her nel'Vous condition, she fired both shots Moore's mother, Washeta Chatman, said they dispute the accounts of the shooting, and find it hard to believe her son had a gun. "I don't believe he did this. I'd believe he tried to steal something from the store. He would be a bjstander, not a par ticipant in anything Violent. It's also possible that someone might have put him up to this." Ms. Chatman said she had been having problems with Quintavius for a while, and tried to get help for him. "He was enrolled at Blake High School for a while, then later we put him in Hillsborough High School. "Because he was so defiant and distracted, we took him out of school, and put him in a pro gram at the Florida Youth Chal lenge Academy. After a couple of weeks, they dismissed him from that program because he was being defiant." Ms. Chatman said for QUINTAVIUS MOORE died after he waS shot allegedly trying to rob a store. some reason, her son was fasci nated with the street life, and was a follower. "He never really got into any serious problems, but he was constantly searching for his own identity. I was always uncom fortable with his associates. Ms. Chatman said Quintavius ran way from home Feb ruary 10th, and although he did contact her during the first week of March, he was still very defiant and ran away again ; "I'd call the police to report him as a runaway. "I cried out for help for my son, and there were no programs that really helped him. I'd tell him about the dangers of wanting to be in the streets, and he just didn t care. Ms. Chatman said when they heard what Baker said, it didn't make sense to them Ms. Chatman said she wants an investigation into how the media got information about her son before they did. "We were sitting in the waiting room at the hospital, waiting to see if Quintavius was going to make it or not. "As we sat there, we were watching the television, and they said he was dead already. No one at the hospital told us a thing." Tampa Police said their in vestigation is ongoing

"'TT :!! Hundreds Fill Tampa Church In Support 01 Manin Familv s: )> BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel City Editor Tampa residents and even some from out of town poured into the 34th Street Church Of God, 3004 N. 34th Street. Cars lined E. 218 1 Avenue and surrounding streets, as the crowds continued to come -even after the church had reached its capacity of 963 seats. At times, the crowd out side equaled the number of people inside. The crowd had come in force to show support for the parents of Trayvon Martin and his extended family mem bers who live in Tampa and Jacksonville. Martin's rela tives --Carolyn Spotford Williams, Ramonita Plaza, Gloria Sportford Rhanes, Carol Lewis, Angela Claypool, DeAnte Claypool, John Tim, Velma Tim, Greg Tim, Patricia Richardson, Ashley Thomas, Iris Johnson, and Simartra Johnson among others were preent. The program participants represented the community in its diversity. Councilman Frank Reddick said, "We are having this rally in support of Trayvon Martin. Thank each of you for being here. This sends a strong message that we, in Tampa, can also come together as a commu nity." Rev. Thomas Scott, host pastor, said that when City Councibnan Reddick con tacted him about the rally, he readily agreed to host it. "Our church always reaches into the community in relevance to this issue about justice, fairness, and sending a strong message to the commu nity of our participation Rev. Scott also gave the invo cation. Iman Qasi Ahmed said, "We all must pray not only for Tampa NUCP Urge All To Anend Rallv In Sanford On Satunlav, March 31st BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel City Editor On Saturday, March 31st, chartered buses from through out the country will converge on Sanford, Florida. The purpose of the visit is the Florida State Conference of the Na tional Association for the Ad vancement of Colored People March and Rally. Ms. Adora Obi Nweze, Florida State NAACP Presi dent, in conjunction with Turner Clayton, Sanford NAACP President, and Ben Jealous, NAACP National President and CEO, have called the rally for several reasons. The rally is a cry for justice in the death of 17year-old Trayvon Martin. The was shot and killed by 28-year-old George Zimmerman, on February 26th. Zimmerman is claiming self defense, and although he was taken into custody the night of the shooting, he has not been charged. Upon learning of the death of the teenager, Turner Clayton, First Vice President of the FSC NAACP, and President of Sanford Branch NAACP, con tacted the State President and conducted his preliminary in vestigation. Afterward, he sub mit a letter to the State President requesting that she forward the letter to the De partment of Justice to come to Sanford and initiate an outside investigation for justice to pre vail. President Clayton Turner felt so strongly, because of the experiences he has encountered over the years, and the evidence, or the lack thereof, in his hometown. His concerns were heightened be cause of his law enforcement career. The fact that Sanford City officials have limited time and experience in their positions was also pointed out. Mayor Jeff Triplett has been in of fice for approximately one year. City Manager Norton Bonaporte, Jr., who is African American, has been in his position for six months. Dr. Carolyn Collins, President of the Hillsborough County Branch NAACP said, "Now is the time for the citi zens of Hillsborough County to accept this clarion call, get on the NAACP bus or plan your bus, make your signs, and go to the Crooms Academy at 2200 E. 13th Street for the 8 a.m. line up for the March. Or, go to the Sanford Police Department, Boo E. 13th Street, where the rally will take place at u a.m. "Let's 'Stand Our Ground On Justice' for Trayvon Martin and the Martin Family in Hillsborough County, Sanford, Miami, Florida, and all Trayvons around the world. The bus will leave from the NAACP Office, 308 E. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Blvd., at 7:30a.m. The seats are available on a first come basis. Everyone occupying a seat must sign up to confirm your trip's reservation. For more information, contact the NAACP Office at (813) 234-8683. peace, but for justice." He further compared the death of Trayvon Martin to the fable of Little Red Riding Hood. "Just like Little Red Riding Hood, Trayvon met a wolf who took his life." Les Miller, Jr., the lone Hillsborough County Commis sioner at the rally said, "We have gone back so years. We re back in the Civil Rights Movement. All we're asking for is his Civil Rights. We must continue to march, ask for jus tice, and not let his death be in vain." Later in the program, Commissioner Miller led the audience in singing "We Shall Over Come." Activist Otis Anthony whipped the crowd into a frenzy as he led the chant, "No Justice, No Peace." "If you don't stand for something, you'll fall for any thing .... The State of Florida has issued a right to kill." Dr. Carolyn Collins, President of the Hillsborough County Branch NAACP recited the numbers pertaining to the number of justifiable homi cides rising 284% since the "Stand Your Ground Law" went into effect in 2005. "Florida started this and some 20 states have followed. In most instances, there are only two witnesses and one of them is dead. She further requested of those going to Sanford not to spend any money. "Drive in and drive out, do not con tribute to the economy of San ford, Florida. It's time to Stand Our Ground." She also asked that every one contact Skittles, the com pany that makes Arizona Iced Tea and places that sell hood ies to contribute to the Martin Family Jarvis El-Amin read a resolution from the Coalition of Muslims Organization, Tampa Bay Muslims Alliance. City Councilman Harry Cohen said, "In 2012, the good people must stand to gether and call for justice. It is incumbent that we call for the repeal of the Stand Your Ground Law, the loser is the law and freedom languishes. We must keep this tragedy front and center. Rev. Charles McKenzie, President of the Rain bow /PUSH Coalition commented on the orderly manner in which the rallies took place. "Forty to fifty thou sand people have gone in and out of Sanford without a single recorded act of violence ... It's timeto vindicate the murder ... People all over the world are looking at America and saying, 'you need to do the right thing.' "What type of system do we have when Michael Vick goes to prison for mishandling dogs and George Zimmerman goes home after killing a 17-year-old child? ... There will be no business as usual, No Justice, No Peace," Rev. McKenzie said. He further said, "Faith without work is dead. It's movement time .... If you buy a hoodie and don't have a reg istration card, you have been hoodwinked. We need protest and progress Trayvon Mar-::D tin is bigger in death than he ever was in life." w Jimmie Giles repre-9 sented the NFL Players Asso-ciation and extended his condolences to the family. "You have to stand up some times and send a message. It could have been any one of our kids." Ahmed Beider, United Voices For America pointed out that George Zimmerman was an Altar Boy. "We have seen plenty altar boys commit crimes." He further drew attention to the fact that the Sanford Po lice Department alleged that Zimmerman was screaming for help. "The Bible says we shall not bear false witness. You're not going to fool all us. You're not going to tell us that the one who has the gun is screaming for help. "It's time for elected offi cials to take a side ... .If you be-"'TT tray us today, we're going to 0 betray you on Election Day." ::D James Muhammad, District Regional, Nation 0 Islam, was the final speaker m before those in the audience spoke.

And the voices of vision did not include former NAACP local director Bob Gilder, or Civil Rights veteran Robert Saunders. But the spirit of those revolutionary days surged throughout Rev. Thomas Scott's 34th Street Church of God. The united cry of"No Justice, No Peace" more than set the stage for an ongoing struggle toward justice and equality. The rally organized by Councilman Frank Reddick, was in support of the bereaved familyofTrayvon Martin, and was in opposition to the laws and racist attitudes, which caused the Black teenager's death. As they used to do during the dismal days of sit-ins and equality marches, men and women of goodwill stood in line to speak at Rev. Tom Scott's pulpit, to rally a crowd of more than t,ooo supporters, and to send a message to the world that young Martin's blameless blood would not be shed in vain. Like members ofTrayvon's family, we at the Sentinel are humbled that the world has shown overwhelming concern about the murder of a Black teen in a gated community. The fact that protestors Europe and other places around the world have cast their support and raised their cries against what they perceive to be a grievous injustice further inspires us to demand that justice be served, regardless of whatever level it may manifest itself. Indeed, we do not scream "Blood-for-Blood." But like millions around the world, we simply say, "Enough is enough." Congratulations to all the political and community leaders who spoke at the recent 34th Street. Church of God rally. Thank you for reminding us that the spirit of Liberty and Justice in Tampa-Hillsborough County is alive. No Valid Reason To Change Florida Elacdon Law We cheered after hearing the United States Justice Department challenged the State of Florida legislators to document the incidents of so-called "excessive voter fraud" that led to Florida's election laws being changed. We're referring to changes by predominantly Republican backers, which would cause severe problems for voter registration drives, early voting, voters with name and address changes (including newly-weds or students), and for establishing accessible community voting sites. At least one Supervisor of Elections official testified that no data existed to support Republican-led suspicions regarding voter-registration trickery. Most certainly, what many of us are beginning to see is a slick, well-crafted attempt to twist traditionally accepted words and concepts so that what once was defined as protection against voter fraud is now re-cooked and represented as the very reason 'YhY voter fraud may occur. Thank goodness for a re-awakened Justice Department, which wastes no time in joining the lawsuit to declare recent election law changes discriminate against Black people, Latinos, students, organizations conducting voter registration drives, and against people who change their names or addresses. T here is nothing funny about the killing of Trayvon Martin. It is a very serious tragedy that has Blacks, whites and Lati nos upset all across the na tion. In spite of that it has been a learning experience for me and one of my brothers. I went out and bought me two bags of Skittles. I ate a couple of them and like them; still I am going to keep a bag of those wea pons with me at all times. I have discov ered that a bag of Skittles can put a person in fear of his or .her life. And don't have a can of iced tea, because pe9ple really feel threatened then. For God sakes, don't be Black, have a bag of Skittles, a can of iced tea and be wearing a hoodie. Man a whole gang of people can be scared to death Last Friday a brother of mine was going for his usual morning exercise walk. As he passed through a park, there were a gang of nonBlacks rid ing on lawn mowers cutting the grass. They looked suspi cious to my brother because they were all wearing hoodies and a mask over their mouths. These guys looked suspi cious to him and he thought that the grass-cutting was just a ploy to lead to some devious act. He started to say some thing to them, but he was afraid to because he did not have a bag of Skittles. Then, he thought he would run home and call 9-ll, but then he realized that wasn't a 5 ::D Guest Column g Whv Voting Maners A few weeks ago I had dinner voters will go to the polls and in Miami Florida with the curthey will choose whether Pres-r rent Pres i dent of the United ident Obama gets another States of America. four years or whether someone F Before I go on any further, I instead will take his place.

And in that moment, I could choose to make small talk or I could press him on the is sues that matter most to me and my clients I chose the latter. While I will not disclose the content of our conversation, I will point out that over the past year of writing this criminal law column for the Florida Sen-tinel, I have made certain causes of my clients my own. Those of you who are regular readers know those causes. Many of the people in atten dance that night in Miami were not all that interested in my causes and, to be honest why should they be? My clients are different than theirs. My cause& are d i fferent than theirs. My dreams are different than theirs This is not a bad thing Or a good thing It just is. The clients causes and dreams of those in attendance are I am sure, in their minds just as important as mine. But rest assured that the causes of my readers (and m y clients) were brought forward and I pressed the President and stood my ground (Okay one hint: Fairness in federal sentencing must be made retroactive or it is just kinda sorta fair.)

This, my friends, was not his first rodeo The thing that I will always remember, however, what will stand out in my memory years from now, will not be my chance to speak with him about the issues that matter most to me (even though that was amazing) Instead it will be the off the cuff remarks he made in the middle of his speech directed to the servers that were moved to the.-back of the room once he arrived. The servers working class folks doing an honest day's work for an hone s t day's pay, jus t like m y d a d and my grand father bef o re him. Easily forgot ten. E asily overlooked.

This will all the inclusion of underutilized WMBEs and SLBEs The second initiative per tains to the sheltered market for formal and informal con tracts. The initiative will allow goal setting for underutilized WMBEs and SLBEs who apply for subcontracting. The select ed task or trade can be repre sented by either a WMBE or a SLBE, the City can set a goal of inclusion, and require good faith effort compliance. The third initiative increases the rating points given to prime_ W /MBE companies from 5 to 10 points for RFPs andRFQs. Hart said, The rating is usually on a 100 point scale. Now that we have identified the underutilized businesses, they can receive 10 points in the evaluation process .... Those points can make all of the difference." The changes are significant in that under the current dis bursement of funds none of the goals for African Americans were met in the Sub-Contracting Category. In the Formal Contracts, one goal was met for African Americans and two were met for Hispanics. In the Informal Contracts Category, only one goal was met for African Americans. He further stated that the initiatives are based on the current laws and guidelines The initiative will be present ed to City Council. If approved and after having public meet ings, the initiatives can be implemented as early as the fall of 2012. For more information about the proposed changes, contact Hart at (813) 274-5522.

'Hunger Galles' Fans React NeaatiVeiJ To Black Characters Aritandla Stenberg costars as Rue in the current blockbuster 'The Hunger Games.' Some of the charac ters in the newly re leased 'The' Hunger Aritandla Stenberg Games are Black -and some fans of the book are not happy about it. According to reports, a few of the film's characters are described as "dark" and "brown" in the novel on which it's based. Some readers must have glossed over those parts be cause a Tumblr account ded icated to documenting fans' tweets about the film has un covered an outpouring of hostility toward people in volved in casting the film and its Black stars -including 13-year-old Aritandla Stenberg, who one fan called a "black b*tch." Now as you inay know, Katniss, the main character in the book and film, was de scribed as having "straight black hair" and "olive skin." It's a post-apocalyptic world, so she could be a mix of things, but some pictured a Native American. Blonde haired, blue-eyed Jennifer Lawrence won the part and dyed her hair dark.

Burns is a native of Jacksonville, Florida, and a graduate of Florida A&M University where he played football, basketball, and was a member of their track and field team.

In 1997, I was in an auto mobile accident that left me with some serious injuries, so I had to look at another career. I've always loved football so it was natural for me to go in that direction. Seeing young men mature in front of your eyes was great. I coached at a small college for a while but there s noth ing like doing it on the high school level.

Burns previously coached at his alma mater in Jacksonville, Andrew Jackson High School, then in Celebration, Florida before taking a position at New Haven High School in Michigan.

What will make the rivalry even greater this season is the fact that their head coach Alonzo Ashwood, and I are former teammates at FAMU That will add more fire to the rivalry." Burns said the first thing he and his coaching staff needs to do is make the players understand this is a process of improvement, and for them to visualize success. I want them to understand that success starts with getting to school on time, going to class, and making yourself accountable. We want to carry that into the weight room and with our conditioning pro gram I want them to want to be winners, and there' s no secret to success." Burns said he' s still putti ng his coaching staff together, but he did decide to retain Darrell Gordon from last year. I consider Darrell Gordon to be a valuable asset I also will hav.e former Tampa Bay Buccaneer, Anthony Davis on my staff and later I will be welcoming Richard "Batman" Woods." Burns said the team must be stronger academi cally. And his goal is to have the team With the best GPA at the end of the year.

Unpaid Code Enforcement Fines Mav Result In Your license Being Suspended BY LEON B. CREWS Sentinel Staff Writer On Thursday, the Tampa City Coun cil addressed the issue of its Code Enforcement Department and their policy. The Cod e Enforcement policy issue was brought to the attention of the Cougcil due to a large number of unpaid fines b y code violators, and what can be done to collect those unpaid fines. Council -chairman, Charlie Miranda, said first, they need to find out what the problems are with collection the fines and how to address them. I'm not opposed to change, but we need to know what to change. We have to be more realistic and compassionate with people who have been fined for vi olations This has to be done in a sys tematic way. There are a variety of reasons why some people haven't paid the fines and we need to look into that before taking any drastic action. Councilwoman Yvonne Capin said she believes consolidation is the answer, but agreed that they need more time to get more information on what to do. Council members also suggested that to make the process more enforce able, perhaps a violator s driver's li cense can be suspended for failing to pay the fines. Council members decided to ask various departments to return with rec ommendations in May on what action can be taken to make the collection process more enforceable. Code Enforcement Director, Jake Slater, said they don' t get involved with the collection process. "That responsibility falls on the city's budget and finance department. I will say that some fines and liens go back to 1989 and the city will never that money, although it's on the books." Slater said although it is the re sponsibility of property owners to maintain their properties, they spend taxpayer dollars mowing some proper ties and boarding up abandoned homes He also said you can't put a lien on a: homesteaded property. As far as the suggestions made b y Council members on collections, I think this is a step in the right direction We also may explore turning it over to a collection agency. Slater said beginning June 18th -and ending August 10th, a specially funded program will allow them to do a major cleanup in the East Tampa area. "we'll have 36 part time people working with us. We1l be cleaning up alleys, vacant lots, abandoned homes, -and other properties." a: g Tired gas prices, and the.stress Lef HART get you to your desttnatton.

c a: u.. c z c( c en w :l 1-> a: w > w c w l: en ::::; m :l Q. Stand On The Truth Sometimes it is difficult talking to people about what is true and what is not. To some people they have come to be lieve that their reality is their truth. If what you are saying or doing does not line up to what they think, feel, or see, then you are not about their truth. The difficulty of life is try ing to get people to see the real truth. In many instances peo ple can't break free from the bonds of sin and oppression because they can't see beyond their truth. What will help them is seeing the real truth of life. This is the situation surrounding this week s lesson in John 18:28-38 Jesus was put in a situation because of the religious leaders' percep tion of the truth. The problem was that their perception was not the truth. They were con vinced of a false truth and acted upon it. The leaders had Jesus arrested and taken to the Roman governor (vs. 28). The governor was a Gentile; therefore, the Jews could not have contact with him or they would have been unable to continue to celebrate Passover Consider this, they want to stay clean to celebrate a reli gious ceremony, but they are falsely accusing a man who they do not understand and refuse to accept! Do you know of people who try to be so holy and righteous according to custom, but yet dislike folk be cause they are not like them or feel threatened by them? Pilate asked them, "what charges do you bring against Him?" Their reply is, "we would not have brought Him to you if He was not a crimi nal" (vv. 29, 30). Their an swer does not fit Pilate s question. Pilate wanted to know the charges! They sim ply say He is a criminal. People oftentimes have folk tried and convicted in their own mind. Have you ever heard people talk about someone and you ask them "why don't you like him/her?" z w ..J ..J :l ST.

It is hard to help the person see the real truth. Pilate instructed them to judge Jesus according to their own laws and the Jews replied they don't have any right to ex ecute anyone (vs. 31). When people can't touch you accord ing to their own beliefs they will try other laws. Sometimes people try to turn others against you. Pilate, not being persuaded by them, talked to Jesus for himself. He asked Jesus out right, are you king of the Jews (vs. 33)? This is Pilate step ping out of his reality and the truth others are trying to get him to believe He went to Jesus and asked for himself. It is a good idea for you to talk to people for yourself in stead of going on the word of others. You might dislike someone or sentence him or her based upon someone else's narrow-minded perspective. If you are in doubt, go ask them yourself. Jesus replied, are you ask ing because that is what you want to know or because of what others have been saying (vs. 34)? Jesus knew that it was because of what others were saying, because Pilate has no interest in what they are doing. But at least be open about your intent and be will-NEW MT. ZIOII M. B.

Local Churches Unite For Neighborhood fun Fest BY GWEN HAYES Sentinel Editor Last Wednesday morning, Minister James DanielS awoke in the wee hours with a glaring headache. "I told myself to just lie back down and try to go back to sleep. But that didn't happen The Lord told me to get up and start writing." Minister Daniels says he was given an outline for an event the Lord wanted him to do, and even gave him the people he needed to contact to make sure it happened. He did that. Everyone on his contact list said yes and no one has asked for any money. I know it had to be God because I didn't even know some of these people and they said 'yes'."

Minister wants To Inspire Others Minister Jarvis Ball has paid his dues. Looking back on his past, he some times wonders how he sur vived. "I dropped out of high school, became a drug ad dict, spent time in prison, and basically turned away from reality," said Minister Ball. "While in I real ized I couldn't return to that life, and I needed to do some thing to lay the foundation for my future. So, I got my GED and from there I stud ied hard and got a license as a master electrician." Minister Ball later set up a ministry in his Sulphur Springs community called Covenant Of God Ministries, where he brought in youth from the area to be mentored and taught how to be electri cians. "I was able to set up a computer room for them, and I was also able to set up a classroom and teach them the basics of becoming an electrician. "At that time, I concentrated more on helping the troubled kids who had either spent time in prison and were having trouble finding work, or the ones who were one step away from heading to prison. That out MINISTER JARVIS BALL great until my funding dried up, and I had to put every thing on hold." One of the things Minister Ball also had to put on hold was his gospel record ing studio and his outreach ministry that fed hundreds of people. "Right now, I'm very ex cited about the book I've just finished, and I've already been approached about turn ing one of its chapters into a movie. The first phase of the book is about a young man living in the streets, and later being blamed for things he didn't do. He would later wind up on death row.

A lot of them know nothing about computers, and we felt we could help them with computer skills, and at the same time, give them infonnation on nutrition. "There are also seniors in the area who have some prob lems they can't handle, like a leaky roof and other prob lems. We want to point them in the right direction to get the work done." Ms. Clemons said the Senior Citizens Day offers seniors an opportunity to unite while playing bingo, dominoes, and other games. "We will try to help those with transportation problems come to the event," said Ms. Clemons. There will be plenty of free food, and all seniors, 55 years and older and those disabled, are welcome man." salesman who became one of the richest' men in the world." in Sulphur Springs, and get involved in helping save the lives of young people.

Now, I feel I'm really growing. My clients love the new location. "In 2009, I first saw the building on Fletcher. It was still under construction, but I thought that would be a great location for me. In October 2011, I became so frustrated not being able to provide the services my clients deserved. That's when I knew it was time to relocate. "Now, I have better places to park because it was so cramped on Busch. I'm happy that. my entire staff came with me, and we're ready to go." Melanee said she's always open for growth, and no one knows what the future holds ; but Jesus Christ Himself. Ultimately, it's all about my clients having a place they can be proud of. This is for them, not for me, and only by the Grace of God was this able.to happen. On Saturday, Melanee will be hosting a family event at her new salon to announce her gl-and opening. With 95.7FM the beat joining her, shewill have free haircuts, eye brow threading, mas sages, and mini makeovers There will be plenty of free prizes and giveaways, food, and a bounce house for the kids.

Tra on's FamilY c iticizes Information Leaks SANFORD, Fla. The par ents of a slain Florida teenag er are blaming police for leaking information about their son being suspended for mar ijuana and details about the fight he had with the shooter that portrayed the teen as the aggressor. Trayvon Martin's moth er Sybrina Fulton, and family attorneys said Monday that it was part of an effort to demonize her 17-year-old son who was shot and killed last month by neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman. "They kill e d my son and now the y're trying to kill his reputation," Fulton told reporters. Martin was suspended by Miami:-Dade County schools because traces of marijuana were found in a plastic baggie in his book bag, family spokesman Ryan Julison said. Martin was serving the suspension when he was shot TRAYVON MARTIN'S PARENTS Feb. 26. The Sanford Police Depar tmen t insisted there was no authorized release of the new information, but acknowledged there may have been a leak. City Manager Norton Bonaparte Jr. said it would be investigated and the person responsible could be fired. NOll Cop: Travv n tved like A Thug And e -ed lke One New Orleans police officer Jason Giroir, 35, has been suspended indefinitely with out pay for making disparag ing remarks about 17-yearold Trayvon Martin online. In response to a comment posted Sunday on WWLTV.com on a story about Trayvon, who was unarmed when he was gunned down by George Zimmerman, 28, Giroir said that the 17-yearold deserved to die: "Act like a Thug Die li k e one!" he wrote. Giroir's wife echoed her husband's sentiments on the same article: "He acted like a thug and died like one, she wrote. When a commenter said that Giroir's comments were racist, the veteran d i d not back down: ... come on down to our town with a 'Hoodie' and you can join Martin in HELL and talk about your racist stories!"
