ThiS is what Mr. Cole's building looks like now. Since the introduction of the City of Tampa' s Program, no African Ameri can owned businesses had taken advantage of upgrad ing their businesses. Several meetings were held to let business owners know about the program how it worked, and that the city would match the cost of renova tions. The program was funded for Drew Park, Ybor City, and East Tampa in 2010 Now, two African Ameri can owned businesses have become the first to step up and take advantage of the program. Mr. Robert Cole, Sr. said he first heard about the program during a meeting held by the East Tampa Busi ness and Civic Association. "We talked about the Program and other incentives in East Tampa for business owners. I called Ed Johnson (East Tampa De velopment Manager), and he put me in touch with Michelle Van Loan "At the first of the year, I started with the renovations to my business on Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard. Mr. Cole said the com plete cost of his renova tion project will be close to $2oo,ooo once it is completed, with the city covering a part of the cost I decided to go ahead with the proj ect to inspire This is a drawing of what Mr. Cole's building will look like when the project is completed. others to do it. I think other Black business owners in East Tampa need to know what's available to them. "Since the project started, I've gotten phone calls from people asking how they can get involved I think more businesses will get involved and take advantage of this program once they see how mine will look." Mr. Cole said he's doing this to put more people to work. "I'm not trying to make more money. I'm trying to put more money into the community. I want to help generate jobs. "I had total control of the design concept. When the en gineers brought the i r plans to me, I cancelled everything they had, and gave them my drawings I still haven t de cided on a color yet : Marvin Knight, owner of Oriental Fish Market on 15th Street and Lake Avenue, said after attending meetings, and as a business owner, he decided to take ad vantage of the project. "I always felt it was very much in need, because of what it meant to Ybor City and East Tampa. I thought it was a great tool to attract more businesses to the area. I plan to do some inte rior upgrades as well. I want something nice for my cus tomers to patronize, and this will show how much we appreciate their business." Knight said he' s very much pleased with the way everything has turned out, and he had no input into the actual design. "I just told them what I was looking for, and I wanted something visible and more appealing. We went from roofing to paving, and there's more work to do. I hope this will encour age other Black businesses to do this. I've personally visited some of them, and shared information to help them get started. It's up to us to promote our businesses." Knight said he's happy to see the improvements along 22 n d Street and he'd like to see more. "I want to see more peo ple have a stake in the area as far as its future is concerned.

YoungMan Rises Above Tragedv To Graduate From College BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel City Editor Four years ago, two brothers went out to celebrate their respective birth days.

Oft .. sauln Guns And AI4Ts ''B e careful what you wish for because you just might get it," so the saying goes. No doubt, Tampa members of the Republican Party are biting their bottom' lips as they remember how fervently they and the National Rifle Association stumped for a state law that gave every so-called ter tified American the inalienable right to carry around an assault weapon. It seems, in Tampa at least, the hens have come home to roost as Tampa Republican National Conference planners receive the sad news that they cannot stop people (outside convention hall) from walking around with howitzers. So says State law, any local government that interferes with an American's constitutional right to carry a Kalashnikov runs the risk of being fined upwards of $too,ooo. And if the culprit is a local bureaucrat, thtm said public servant may be kicked out of office, whacked in the wallet to the tune of $s,ooo, and re fused not a kiss from their city attorney. when it comes to the subject of people, guns / :And the RNC in Tampa, municipal officials aren;'t completely defeated. Sources say absolutely no guns will be allowed on convention premises, and such includes water-pistols. So, no squirting at all will be condoned, not even in fun. We're told Tampa planners have also been assured the only people toting guns on convention grounds will either be certified police officers or Secret Service officers. Upon being given that last bit of news, perhaps, the relief is palpable. But arrogance is recklessness. No doubt, condoners of the Constitutional right to bear arms never dreamed that one day, the guns they let loose would be aimed at them. Hopefully, Tampa RNC will not be made to pay the price for political stupidity. 1 Voters Need long Memories I For decades, we have known that certain politicians and elected officials count heavily on voters to have short memories. So, consider now what most Florida Republican Congressional House members voted to do (in the dead of night?). First, remember that nearly ten million Americans will lose healthcare coverage if the Supreme Court votes to. nullify the Republican-opposed so-called Obama-care universal healthcare plan. Secondly, the current Republican-dominated House of Representatives recently passed a budget that would raise the eligibility age for Medicare from 65 to 67. Two years is no problem? Get to be 65, then think about it. Finally, Republicans-acting-badly voted to cut Medicaid and other health programs that would provide healthcare services to poor people by nearly $8oo billion, denying nearly 20 million Americans the right to have healthcare. In a bucket, this nation's poor, sicldy, and elderly voters need to remember such assaults on them personally during the upcoming 2012 elections. Irs Game On For Real II during the Republi can Presidential Nomination Race President Barack Obama has not really re ferred to any of the candi dates by name. For a great while, that would have been a difficult thing to do. Republican aspirants took turns moving to the top of the leader board as the pos sible Republican candidate. As the Republican pri mary winds down, it seems clear that Mitt Romney is the prospective nominee. It is just a matter of time be fore Romney becomes the official nominee. The Obama campaign team has accepted this fact and it is game on since last Tuesday. One thing is obvious, and that is the fact that Pres. Barack Obama is great as a campaigner. Within the past month, President has slowly been shifting into his campaign mode. Democrats and supporters are glad. He is also inspiring his base and moving them into campaign mode. In his campaign mode, the President is still civil, but he is also tough and feisty. Tell Romney to bring it on. He needs to remember that he is no longer dealing with Santorium, Paul and Newt. Instead, he is deal ing with a very articulate, intelligent and likeable can didate in Pres. Obama. It should also be noted that Pres. Obama will not be a candidate scraping for money to get from one state to another or trying to come up with money to run a po litical ad in a certain state. Unlike his Republican op ponents, Mr. Barack Obama has been President and is the President. All of the silly gaffes that Romney made while seek ing the Republican nomina:B tion will be amplified i against President !: Obama. The race for the ::D presidency of the United F States is on. The clown .s show of the Republican pri mary is over It is show and tell time now. All the polls tend to show the President leading Romney in the race for presi dent. The President has a remarkable ground group of v olunteers who are good at turning out Obama voters Som e body tell Romney that he is now in the politi cal race of his life. That po litical life has been nearly 30years. Willard Mitt Romney is not new to the political scene. He tries hard to paint himself as a businessman and not a politician. He is a businessman, because he couldn't get elected. He ran for the United States Senate and lost. He ran for Gover nor of Massachusetts, served a four year tenn, but had no chance of winning a second tenn. He ran for President of the United States and couldn't win the nomination. Now, he is running for president again. Sounds like a politi cal wanna-be to me. It's game on Mitt. Bring it. Senator wants Grand Jurv Members Chosen From Outside Sanford State Senator Gary Siplin (DOrlando) sent a letter to State Attorney Angela Corey asking that Grand Jury members in the Trayvon Martin case be selected from outside of Sanford. the Grand Jury is supposed to hear the case on Tuesday, April10. In the letter, Senator Siplin said, "As you are aware, due to the request that I recerttly made to Governor Rick Scott asking that he use his executive au thority to appoint a State Attorney from outside of the Eighteen Judicial Circuit to conduct the investigation of the killing of Trayvon Martin, you were ap pointed the Assigned State Attorney for the case. "I am now writing to make an additional request of you as you begin your GARYSIPLIN State Senator work on this investigation. "Due to the volatile social climate currently pervading in Sanford at the present time, I am asking that mem bers of the Grand Jury be se lected from an area outside of the immediate city and county boundaries to allow for a more unbiased assess ment of the facts, he said. He further stated that al though the case has received tremendous national media attention, this is one small but significant thing that can be done to further ensure the citizens of Sanford that truth and fairness are at the heart of this investigation. The role of the Grand Jury is to determine if there is sufficient legal basis to ar rest and charge George Zimmerman in the death of the 17-year-old teenager. Zimmerman is claiming that he shot Martin in self defense. Senator Siplin believes a Grand Jury chosen from outside of the county has a better chance of being unprejudiced. t

N o Pa eSix Educator Will Never Forget Assassination Ollr. Kina BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel City Editor The year 1968 was memo rable for many across the country. On a national scale, the Vietnam war raged on, the country was embroiled in tur moil, and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., was assas sinated. Two months after his death, Senator Robert Kennedy was assassinated. The year 1968, was one of vio lence for the United States. Henry "Shake" Washington, who celebrated his 63rd birthday on Wednesday, April 4, remembers the year well. In Tampa, he was a sen ior and athletic standout at Middleton High School, the teachers were on strike, and a fire at Middleton High School 0 caused thousands of dollars in a: damage. LL. Washington said, "I will C always remember 1968, I'll never forget my birthday that year. Dr. Martin Luther 0 King, Jr., was assassinated U> on my birthday. Middleton's basketball team was playing a game at Cyrus Greene Park. "All of a sudden, people w starting going berserk. They > were running through the w 0 graveyard and down N. 22nd w Street. We didn t know what ::J: U) :::i m ::: a. z i= w ..J ..J ::: m ..J w z i= z w U) c( c a: 0 ..J LL. was going on. Then we heard that Dr. King had been as sassinated." In the aftermath of the assassination, riots broke out throughout the country. In THOMAS E. PARNELL EsOt, HENRY WASHINGTON Hillsborough County School District Area IV Director Tampa, the White Hats were formed to help calm the civil unrest. Washington said, "My best friend, the late Harold "Bo" Levins, was born on Dr. King's birthday and Dr. King was assassinated on my birthday." When asked how he felt Dr. King would handle the death of Trayvon Martin, Washington said, "I think he would want non-violent protest and he would probably say 'let's see what really hap pened,' because we have heard a lot of rumors, but we don't have the full details of the shooting. "I believe Dr. King would want us to remain verbal, vocal, and visible, but not con frontational." Death Called Prophetic Exactly two months before his death, on February 4, 1968, Dr. King delivered a sermon at Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta that has been called prophetic. Some believe that the speech con tained portions of his own Eulogy. Dr. King traveled to Memphis in support of the striking sanitation workers. While there, he delivered his now famous "I've Been To The Mountain Top" speech, on Apnl 3rd. Dr. King said, ... Well, I don't know what will happen now. We've got some d(fficult days ahead. But, it really doesn't matter with me now, because I've been to the mountaintop. "And I don't mind. "Like anybody, would like to live a long life. Longevity has its place. But I'm not concerned about that now. I just want to do God's will. And He's allowed me to go up to the mountain. And I've looked over. And I've seen the Promised Land. I may not get there with you. But I want you to know tonight, that we, as a people, will get to the promised land!" On the evening of the mur der, around 6 p.m., an assas sin's bullet ended the iife of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., as he stood on the balcony of the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, Tennessee. NURSING HOME NEGLECT OR MEDICAL MALPRACTICE. ALL SERIOUS INJURIES.

During the : Christmas holidays she filled Several Agencies VVing For Children's Board Funds BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel City Editor Last year, the Children's Board of Hillsborough County invited the community orga nizations to submit requests for proposal. The agencies were vying for approximately $20 million through the com petitive procurement process. The reviewers were teams of parents, community stakeholders, retired human service professionals, and other representatives. They formed the five Community Review Teams who rated and evaluat ed the 71 submitted proposals. Thirty-four of the proposals received a rating score of 70 or higher, out of a maximum 100 points to advance to the next phase. On Monday, April gth, the Community Review Teams will determine which proposals will advance to the next phase of the elimination process. This year, because of fund ing cuts, the Children's Board is focusing on providing assis tance for children in the areas of health, and reading. The goal is that the children be successful in school by the age of8 years. Big Brothers, Big Sisters of Tampa Bay received the high est rating in the first phase of elimination. Others who sur vived elimination included the Hispanic Services Council, Inc., Tampa Metropolitan Area YMCA, Alpha House of Tampa, Inc., and organizations catering to the homeless and drug prevention. However, proposals from agencies such as the Crisis Center of Tampa, Northside Mental Health Center, and the Tampa Lighthouse for the Blind failed to survive the first round of elimination. Dr. Luanne CEO of the Children's Board of Hillsborough County said, "By focusing on children up to the age of 8 and pregnant women, we're making sure kids are successful by third grade. Studies have shown that children who start school with disadvantages do not catch up and continue to fall behind their better-prepared peers." The Board of Directors for the Children's Board of Hillsborough County will receive the recommendations at their monthly meeting on May 24th. Those agencies that were not funded will have an opportunity to file an appeal in June. The new funding cycle goes into effect on October 1 2012. a 35 dozen brownie order!

------------------------------------------------...-n School Needs Help To Participate In First JRITC National Competition BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel City Editor Four years ago, the first Navy Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps (JROTC) Program began at Spoto High School. During that first year, the stu dents were more concerned with per fecting their skills than competing. However, they did compete in subse quent years and their efforts paid off. Last month, the 40-member team placed third in state competition. In doing so, this advances the youngsters to compete in the national competition on April 13th and 14th in Pensacola. Ms. Latasha Mann, a team par ent, said this is the first time any Hills borough County Navy JROTC has earned this honor. However, the team must raise $14,000 for the competition. Ms. Mann said they are holding various types of fundraisers but because they must be in Pensacola from April nth through April 15th, they need help from the community. "We are so proud of our kids. The JROTC is only four years old and they are competing on a national level ," she said. The entire squad consists of 175 cadets, but only 40 of them are members of the Competition Team. The 20 male and 20 female squad has already taken part in 6 competitions this year, Ms. Mann said. The supporters of the team, which incl udes, Principal Phillip L. Carr; Ms. Nadine E. Green, Master Chief/USN-Retired; Lt. Commander Stephen Nesthus, and Chief Ed ward Robinson, along with the par ents are hoping to raise the necessary funds for the trip. Ms. Mann said the time between competitions is so close that it doesn't allow enough time to raise the money. The team won the state competition on March 3 when they competed in Oviedo, Florida. She further stated that she works to help the squad because her two sons, Dennis Owens, Jr., who is a junior, and Daevon Owens, who is a sopho more, both attend Spoto High School. In addition to being honor students and football players, both young men are also members of the JROTC. Master Chief Green said, "Our program is only in its fourth year as a "Unit and has already become a huge asset to the school and community. We provide community service support for a large number of organizations in and around Hillsborough County "In order for our "leaders of tomor row" to continue with their success and realize their dreams of participating in the national competition, they need help to pay for meals, hotel accommodations, charter bus transportation, and event packages, she said.

The officer said the vehicle turned wide, and then topped along the shoulder of the road. The officer said he activated his emergency lights. He then approached the driver's side of the vehi cle and the door opened. The driver, later identified as 33-year-old Loren Woods, got out of the vehi cle and walked away, police said. The officer stopped Woods, and reported smelling alcohol on his breath. The officer said he asked Woods to do a sobriety test and he refused. Woods reported told the officer the tests were biased against Black people, and he only take the test if it was admin istered by a Black officer. The officer told Woods by refusing to take the test, it could go against him in court. Woods refused again and was arrested. After arresting Woods, the officer allegedly asked him how much money he had with him, and Woods replied $15,000. The officer said he counted the money and told Woods he had only $2,200. Woods allegedly asked the officer if he wanted to take the money, and he would leave. The officer reportedly said he asked the LOREN WOODS driver was he offering him a bribe, and Woods said no.

Marva Scott Development Corporauon wants To Help Small Businesses Get Staned In 2001, Alexander Wil son and others created a concept that became the U.S. Small BusineSs Development Corporation. The goal of the company is to help create long term jobs, stabilize the economy, and strengthen small businesses to create legacies that will be around for generations. Dr. Wilson, who is pres ident of the corporation, said they opened their first office in Lutz, FL, and they are now headquartered in Washing ton, D.C. "Our specialty is helping potential business owners understand what they need to successfully run their businesses, and we also help strengthen existing busi nesses. We incorporate busi nesses, and help them with marketing strategies, and we do all of this at no charge to the business. "We excel with the busi nesses that need financial as sistance, and we also provide them with the resources they need." Dr. Wilson said what's unique about the corporatio.n is if the business owner IS spending certain dollars to operate their business, they help them optimize their websites at no cost. "There are a lot of things business owners pay for that DR. ALEXANDER WILSON they shouldn't have to, and we help them identify those areas." Dr. Wilson said they've recently created a Nation wide Chamber of Commerce, and he wants to see more economic stability among Black owned businesses, and at the same time, help those trying to get started. "We know there are other groups out there that say they can do the same things we do, but it all comes with a fee. All of our services come with no fee to the business owner and all of the help we provide is given on a one-on one basis."

Why Is Vitamin D Deficiency So Harmful? Vitamin D promotes calcium absorption and is needed for bone growth and restoration. Without sufficient vitamin D, bones can become thin, brittle, or misshapen. Together with calcium, vitamin D also helps protect older adults from osteoporo sis. A growing body of re search suggests that vitamin D might play some role in the prevention and treatment of type 1 and 2 diabetes, hypertension, multiple sclerosis or other health issues.

National :u Pres.Obama Deno.unces GOP Budget Plan PRES. BARACK OBAMA WASHINGTON -In an election-year pitch to middle-class voters, President Barack Obama is denouncing a House Republican budget plan as a "Trojan horse, warning that it represents "an attempt to impose a radical vision on our country" that would hurt the pocketbooks of working families. Pres. Obama, in a speech to newspaper execu tives, is sharply criticizing a $3.5 trillion budget proposal pushed by Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., which passed on a near-party-line vote last week and has been embraced by GOP presidential hopefuls. The plan has faced fierce resistance from Democrats, who say it would gut Medicare, slash taxes for the wealthy _and lead to deep cuts to crucial prQgrams such as aid to college students and highway and rail projects. "It's a Trojan horse. Disguised as deficit reduction plan, it's really an attempt to impose a radical vision on our country," Pres. Obama said in excerpts of his speech released Tuesday. "It's nothing but thinly veiled social Darwinism." Pres. Obama Confident Supreme coun Will Uphold Health Care taw WASHINGTON President Barack Obama on Monday issued a rare; direct challenge to the Supreme Court to uphold his historic health care overhaul, weighing in with a vigorous political appeal for judicial restraint. He warned that overturn ing the law would hurt millions of Americans and amount to overreach by the "unelected" court. Pres. predicted that a majority of justices would uphold the law when the ruling is announced in June. But the president, himseif a former law profes sor, seemed intent on swaying uncertain views in the meantime, both in the court of public opinion and in the minds of the justices about not overstepping the high court's bounds.

Three tickets -one each in Kansas, Illinois and Maryland will split the jackpot, which officials said Monday was higher than previously estimated. It is now at $656 million, after sales from the 44 state lot teries were totaled, up from the previously reported $640 million. That means each winner would receive roughly $218 million apiece before taxes In Maryland, a McDonald's employee claimed to hold the winning ticket an.d planned to contact lottery officials Monday. But lottery spokeswoman Carole Everett said no one had come forward with the ticket sold at a 7-Eleven store in Milford Mill outside Baltimore. Don Thompson Is McDonald's New CEO McDonald's Corp.'s Chief Executive Jim Skinner is retiring, handing the challenge of sustaining one of the restaurant industry' s strongest runs to the company's president, Don Thompson.
