HOLTON Sentinel City Editor Last year, as cases of tax fraud reached epidemic pro portions in the Tampa Bay area, law enforcement formed a multi-agency task force. Through investigations and arrests, the task force continues to uncover infor mation about bogus tax frauds and the manner in which they are committed. On Tuesday, Ms. Ar swaya Ralph, 33, of Riverview, surrendered to police. She was charged with fil ing 65 false income tax claims and identity theft. Ms. Ralph entered into a plea agreement with the U. S Attorney's Office, Middle Dis trict of Florida. She will ap pear before Judge Pizzo on May 21st to enter the plea. Last year, officials learned that Ms. Ralph and others were using stolen identities to perpetuate the tax frauds. According to court documents "Ralph and others were fil ing fraudulent federal income tax returns with stolen iden tities. ... The investigation also revealed that Ralph attended and hosted "Drop Parties during which she and others filed numerous fraudulent in come tax returns at the same time." On June 2, 2011, during the execution of a search war-. Practicing Law ID: rant, law enforcement recov ered and confiscated numer ous items. Some of the items confiscated included a 2010 Buick Lacrosee, $31.40 7 in cash, 42 preloaded debit cards, a pair of Gucci sun glasses with the case, two laptop computers and approximately a dozen hand written ledgers. The ledgers contained the names, dates of birth, social security numbers and other personal identification. The ledgers also contained bank account and routing numbers, court documents showed. Police also seized designer clothing, shoes, luggage handbags, and a pink firearm Authorities said Ms. Ralph had not reported any legitimate income during 2011. After having heard her Miranda warnings, Ms. Ralph told law enforcement that she had been filing fraudulent tax returns since August or Sep tember 2010, and that she had purchased the vehicle with some of the funds. According to court docu ments, the 65 false claims alone resulted in an intended loss of $467,781 from the In ternal Revenue Service. Ms. Ralph is facing a maximum of five years and a fine of $250,000 for making a false claim, and a maximum of 15 years in prison on the charge of identity theft Criminal Defense Family Law Personal Injury Attorney ct Counselor At Law Cypress Point Office Part 10014 N.

According to her daughter, Cynthia Harrell, after their mother became ill; the problems mounted and later became overwhelming. "She spoiled Rosevelt and Rashard, and wanted to make sure they would have a place to live. That's why they were living in the house on Grove Street." Ms. Harrell said no one in the family was prepared for what happened Tuesday morning. According to Tampa Police, Rashard, 20, shot himself in the chest in the living room of their Grove Street home. Ms. Harrell said Rosevelt performed CPR on his brother before emergency personnel arrived, but it was too late. "Rosevelt and Rashard were very close. They were more than brothers. They were best friends, and went nowhere withouf each other, including taking classes at Hillsborough Community College," said Ms. Harrell. "We all were still dealing with our mother's passing, and tlie entire family has been shaken since then. She left the house to all five of us when she passed, but Rosevelt and Rashard were the only ones living there. The house was in foreclosure, and we were all trying everything we knew to keep the house." Ms. Harrell said she last saw Rashard a couple of weeks ago, and his spirit was fine. "I've heard stories that he was depressed, but I never RASHARD BURR saw that. I just find it hard to believe he killed himself. That's just not something Rashard would have done. "We're a little upset the way police treated Rosevelt after this. It's a shame they couldn't see the pain he was in and didn't realize how much he loved Rashard." Ms. Harrell said the entire family has been having finan cial problems, and they were doing their best to hold things together, but it wasn't work ing. "It was a big struggle. Now, we have to bury our brother, and none of us are finimcially able to do that. "We are reaching out to ai.y one who can help us with arrangements for Rashard." Ms. Harrell said the family also is saddened that Mother's Day is approaching, and now they'll have two painful issues to deal with. "We will need the prayers of everyone -to help us get through this. "Anyone who can help us with arrangements for Rashard can reach me at (813) 391-7594" Rashard Burr was the father of a 3-year-old daugh ter.

She had worked there for 14 years. Afterwards, he was going on a job interview. However, the couple never made it to their destination because of a traffic accident that claimed both their lives. Now, their families are attempting to raise money for their funerals. The couple married six years ago, and together became the parents of 13 chil dren. Mrs. Bennett, 32, was the mother of 4, Michael Bennett, 36, was the father of 9, two of which were in his custody. Mrs. Jermeka Lewis, sister of Mrs. Bennett said, "Michael was taking my sister to work and then he was supposed to have a job inter view at my husband's place of employment. When my husband told me, he never showed up, I knew something was wrong. About 20 minutes later, my mother called and said my sister had been air lifted to the hospital." According to the Florida Highway Patrol, the couple MICHAEL AND LETARA BENNETT Killed in traffic accident on May 2, 2012 was traveling on Interstate 4 when an aggressive driver cut them off shortly after 6 a.m. Michael Bennett was dri ving their 2004 Envoy in the outside lane and loss control of the vehicle as he took eva sive action to avoid an accident. Investigating officers said Bennett over-corrected and struck the left side of a 2007 Hino, driven by Carlos Santos, 44, of Kissimmee. After striking the vehicle, Bennett's vehicle flipped over, ejecting both Mr. and Mrs. Bennett. After spinning across the highway, it came to rest on its roof. Both Mr. and Mrs. Bennett died in the accident. Santos was not injured. Her funeral services are planned for Saturday, May 12, at 2 p.m. Middleton Funeral ments. Mrs. Lewis said the family is still struggling to raise the money for the funeral, but it is planned for Saturday. We have looked everywhere and have Iiot been able to find any life insurance policies. 'She didn't have any insurance. We are washing cars and doing what we can. But, our God is an awesome God and He is going to WQrk this out." Michael Bennett was a Tampa native and attended the public schools of Hillsborough County. He graduated from Jefferson High School. After he married, the couple moved to Lakeland to live. Mrs. Karen Smith, Bennett's cousin said, "We couldn't have a double funeral because there is no life insur ance. We are hoping to have his services on May 19th if we can raise the money. "We are struggling like you wouldn't believe trying to get the money for the funeral. People have been giving and we are thankful for the donations we have received, but it's hard in this economy and we understand." Aikens Funeral Home is in charge of handling arrangements for Michael Bennett.

0 Local -USF Upward Bound Progra11 Receives $100,000 Grant BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel City Editor U S Rep. Kathy Castor has been a strong supporter of the University of South Florida's Upward Bound for several years. Since 2007, during the Bush Ad m i nistration p la ced the program in danger of ending, she has fought to save it. U.S. Rep. Castor was re cently instrumental in obtaining a federal grant of nearly $700,000 from the U.S. Depart ment of Education for the pro gram. Upward Bound at USF pro vides a n intensive college readi ne ss session for high school students every year. The skills students learn by participating in Upward Bound help them un derstand higher education op portunities and becom e ward Bound said the program was slated to end on May 31st be cause of funding issues. How ever, Dr. Pride-McRae and her staff applied for the federal grant in March, hoping to keep the program in existence. I was notified by Senator Bill Nelson that we have received the funding. It is a 5-year grant that will provide nearly $700,000 per year, nearly $3 million," she said Dr. Pride-McRae said the program currently has 130 stu dents who will graduate. Next year, they will reduce the num ber of schools they serve to five. top-notch students. ..... Without Upward Bound too man y of our students would LL fall through the cracks. This ini C tiative is a lifesaver for students, Z helping them prepare for college c( and ultimately, their careers, "We are going to serve Tampa Bay Technical High School, King, Middleton, Jeffer son and Leto, all Title I schools We hope to pick up students from Bla ke Hillsborough and Chamberlain with the Math and Science Programs." Dr. Pride-McRae said the program will begin student re cruitment' in the fall and will screen both the students and their parents about their career choices. Rep. Castor said. Thousands of students in the Tampa Bay area have benefited from the Upward Bound.

HOLTON Sentinel City Editor When it comes to being com fortable in the world you create, Mrs. Carol Stewart is an ex pert in the field. During her 30year tenure as a Hillsborough County Classroom teacher, Mrs. Stewart has only worked at Mango Elementary School. After being at the school for five years, she asked her then principal George Shaw if she could start a garden and he ap proved. Mrs. Stewart said all of the other principals that fol lowed liked the concept as well. Shown from left to right are: Connie Milito, Chief Governmental Relations Officer, Hillsborough County Schools; Mrs. Jessica Hessler, Assistant Principal, Ms. Felicia Davis, Principal, Mrs. Carol Stewart, Teacher, Mango Elementary; Commissioner of Agriculture Adam Putnam; Doretha Edgecomb, School Board Member; Senator Artbenia L. Joyner. The subject of the garden came up during a conversation with her friend, Senator Artbenia Joyner. Senator Joyner thought the idea was so novel that she invited Adam Putnam, Florida Commis sioner of Agriculture to visit and that visit took place on May 3rd. She has been doing this for years and she works with the school nutrition program, sup plying them with fresh vegeta bles. She grows all types of vegetables such as corn, collard greens zucchini, onions, toma toes, at the school," Senator Joyner said. Ms. Felicia Davis, Principal said "Carol Stewart has been growing a garden before it was cool, she's been doing this for 25 years Of the Commissioner s visit, Ms. Davis said, He read the children a book about farming and then went to the garden, where he recognized Mrs. Stewart for her service to the children It was really a great honor and send off for her." During the 25 years that she has maintained the garden, Mrs. Stewart said her hus band, Attorney Frank Stewart and his friend, John Daniels, till the earth each year Now that she is retiring, she hopes her first grade team will keep it going. However she does plan to make visits. A Tampa native, Mrs. Stewart graduated from Leto High School in 1971. She contin ued her education at the Univer sity of South Florida, where she earned her B. A. degree in Edu cat ion She is the mother of 4 chil dren and grandmother of 8 Mrs. Stewart is a member of Allen Temple AME Church and lists among her hobbies garden ing and watching sports In recent years, the emphasis has shifted to healthy eating, es pecially for children.

GO-Per Year Both Editions. donot--"Y _.,. __ ofThe _____ ... Wild Things, Pollee And Public Schools Our world is awash with studies. For example, are cent review done by the Department of Education re veals that across America, Black public school students are more prone to be punished extremely (suspended or expelled) than are their white counterparts. According to the Department of Education, public school systems with more than so,ooo students show a percentage breakdown where Black students (at al most 24% enrollment) account for 35% of arrests while white students (accounting for 31% of enrollment) represent approximately 21% of arrests. Implications are that many public school campuses have turned from institutions of education to institu tions of incarceration where police presence has be come as common as reading, writing, and arithmetic. We understand that times have changed. The Electronic-Internet-Age has brought about more wonders and horrors than even the late Maurice Sendak could imagine in his book Where the Wild Things Are. But children are still children. And our public school sys tem, which continues to be the envy of the world, is not, nor should be seen as a place "where wild things are." Yes, modern children are precocious, rambunctious, often disrespectful and impetuous. But does that meali they are also criminal? Does it mean that for even minor infractions, the law must be called and our children must be carted off the campus or off to jail? Black Folks, Phvsical Fitness And Mental Health Of all the issues we celebrate, May should be celebrated as National Health Month. Indeed, the month of May has already been picked to celebrate Osteo porosis Prevention, National Woman's Checkup Day as well as Physical Fitness and High Blood Pressure Education. Given the recent rash of murders, shootings, abuse and assaults, May should also be touted as National Anger Month, connecting it to the ever-present issue of mental health. No doubt, you heard accounts which included the story of a woman ramming a car in front of her be cause its driver was going too slow, or about the young woman who scalded her baby because he wouldn't stop crying. Perhaps, we should name May, National Madne,ss Month. Nevertheless, far too many Americans seem en dowed with little-or-no-patience, psychoses, or are under tremendous stress. Violence in our country has passed the epidemic scale. Most certainly, the time has come to focus ana tional eye on the enemies that are eating our nation from within. A month of mental health rededication is needed. The month of May is our choice. accomplished much. The g problems with the move3::: ment are that their purpose isn't clear and neither are ....... ....... Citizens' MovementBrings About Change their goals. What I have attempted to show is that we can bring N about change through com munity movements. Whenever a large enough number of citizens get tired of something going on in these United States, they can change it. Some of history's greatest changes have come about because citizens got tired and launched a citizen movement. To illustrate this point, let us start with the enslavement of Blacks in this country. A citizen movement, sparked by a group called the Abolitionists, ended the practice of slavery. This was accomplished because some citizens got tired and de cided to do something. Segregation in public places no longer exists be cause a group of citizens said that we are tired and we aren't going to take it any more. This citizen's movement was known as the Civil Rights Movement. The Vietnam War did not end because the United States won it. Citizens felt that the war was unneces sary and was a waste of American's money and lives. They began to protest against the war. Americans refuse to go to war and called for it to end. The rest is history. In 2010, a citizens group reformed the United States Congress. To many, there form was more damaging than good, although it still brought about changes. This citizen's movement was dubbed the Tea Party Move ment. The latest citizens move ment is the Occupy Move ment. While this movement has caused a lot of hype and excitement, so far, it hasn't Citizen movements work federally, in states and in local political districts. Governnlents have becon1e so partisan today until they can't accomplish much of anything. Citizens have be come no more than unim portant pawns in the games elected officials play. In today's world, citizen movements are very impor tant if the American people are going to have their needs and wishes addressed. Citi zen n1oven1ents are neces sary to enforce polarized politicians to work together for the good of those who elected them. We must believe that citi zen's movements have brought about positive changes in the past and they can do it today. In order to do so, it will take effort, leadership and a goal. Most of all, it will take a number of hard-working, dedicated citizens. TRAYVON MARTIN For Man to kill Man is a sin Only 17 years old Your life di

selfish pride. uit On lite I don't feel sorry for suicide victims because in their last moments on earth waddling in self-pity, part of their moti vation to continue with their actions invol ved thinking about the pain they would cause others in the aftermath ... I refuse to give them that satisfaction Being in prison has got to be one of the worse experiences a human being can endure It is loud, intrusive, violent, the food is terrible and if you're a heterosexual male (or female), it's the equivalent to being stranded on a deserted island. On most mornings, it's a struggle to just get out of bed. The idea of having to face another day of engaging in meaningless conversations with individuals who care as little about you as you do about them, is unbearable to say the least. People on the street often ask me how I maintain a posi tive outlook in spite of it all? My answer is always the same I really don't have a Q choice. z I can dwell on the negatives C:C I mentioned earlier and tum into a mental health case. Or, Q I can at least attempt to make f3 the best of a bad situation. :::l Besides, jumping head first toff the toptier or hanging ':t myself from a rail would probably hurt like hell. w Granted, I didn't always Q have this mindset. When I first came into the system, I en didn't have a clue as to how I :::i was going to make the adjust ment. But, when I inet men a.. with two and three life-sen tences living their lives the .... w ...J ...J ;:::) m best way they could, I realized that I had absolutely no room to complain. I became like the man in the metaphor I'd often heard. He felt sorry for himself for not having a pair of shoes. But, when he noticed a man sitting on a corner without feet, he understood how truly blessed he was. It is that same thinking that makes it hard for me to have any sympathy for people who commit suicide like Don Cornelius and Junior Seau. Men whose bare feet may have been sore from walking a rough stretch in their lives; but who were oth erwise fortunate enough that they could still stand. When I heard the news of each of their demise, as harsh as it may sound, I didn't feel sad at all. My initial reaction was that they took the easy way out. They weren't strong enough to deal with the bull crap like the rest of us. It really bothers me when I think about all of the people who are desperately trying to fight off death from cancer, starvation, war injuries and other ailments. I mean they are individuals who are trying to survive any way they can. And here are these guys killing themselves for no other reason than their own In life a person who quits his job can t even receive an unemployment check. So how much compassion are we sup posed to show him when he quits on life? I mean, when you break it down, there's not a better way of describing an individual who chooses that route. They not only quit on themselves, they quit on the people who loved and cared about them as well. What those who contem plate taking that dark altema' tive to living seem not to understand is that life is never easy. There is always going to be a little turbulence. And the decisions we make sometimes make things even harder. But, there is a certainty we can all count on when the going gets rough. Spring will always follow winter. And regardless of how bad things look, things will eventually get better. You just have to have the patience to ride out the storm in order to see the sun come out on the other side.

Obama's Marriage Move Alienate Black Votersil By ZERLINA MAXWELL The conventional wisdom is that Black voters are more socially conservative. The logic then follows that Black voters are more likely to be against (or at least uncom fortable with) gay marriage. With President Obama's vocal affirmation Wednesday that he supports gay couples' legal right to marriage, questions began about the possible electoral impact. Translation: Will Black voters, particularly regular churchgoers, abandon Pres. Obama based on his support for marriage equali ty? The answer is -both com plicated and very simple. First of all, while it is true that Black voters tend to be more conservative and less comfortable with gay marriage, it is also true that marrjage rights for gay cou ples is not an issue that will us them support or abandon the first Black president in November. This election is still about the economy. Second, polling does not support the theory that Pres. Obama supporting rights for gay couples lowers his support among churchgoing Blacks. There was actually polling done after the Obama administration announced that it would no longer defend the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) in court filing with brief after brief asserting that marriage rights for ga y couples should be given heightened scruti ny The verdict: There was no erosion of support among Black voters. Some disagreed with Pres. Obama on this issue and at the same time still supported and intended to vote for his re-election. With the DOMA briefs, the Obama administration was giving all of the signals, policy-wise, that they were on the side of equality. All of the signals except the president saying so. Wednesday, Pres. Obama became the first sitting president ever to endorse marriage equality. The announcement is a symbolic gesture with historic significance that will not likely be measured for years. Socially conservative Black voters may not be as comfortable with gay marriage, but they certainly know a thing or two about equality for all. Equality for all is certain ly a message that resonates. The prediction over elec toral impact becomes more complicated when you look at constituencies that Pres. Obama needs to turn out in battleground states. In reali ty though, any damage from this public "shift" on marriage equality may even out in terms of electoral outcomes because of increased enthusiasm among essential segments of Pres. Obama's base. THE WESTSIDE TAMPA BAY CULTURAL SOCIETY, INC. IS NOW ACCEPTING CONSTRUCTION BIDS FOR BLACKMON WESTSIDE RETAIL I.

Delon Sanders Gets Temporarv CustodJ II Children DEION SANDERS vs. PILAR SANDERS McKINNEY, Texas -A Texas judge ordered Deion. Sanders' estranged wife on Monday to stay at. least soo yards away from the former NFL star's suburban Dallas home in a ruling stemming from a scuffle between tlte pair last month. State District Judge Ray Wheless also gave the Hall of Farner temporary custody of the former couple's children pending a full custody hearing, and ordered that the children undergo psychological coun seling. Wheless ruled that the injuries to Pilar Sanders, which she alleged her husband inflicted during an April 23 scuffle at their $5.7 million home in Prospect, were a result of Deion Sanders defending himself from her assault. Wheless said that since Dei on. Sanders eXperi enced no pain, it was only sim ple assault, which is punish able by a fine. Bucs Take lonulook At For11er lSU Quanerback The Tampa Bay Buccaneers decided they needed to a long look at former Louisiana State University quarterback, Jordan Jefferson.

Schiano said he feels there's a lot of upside with Jefferson, and they are going to work with him and just take it from there Before the national championship game, Jefferson threw for 684 yards and six touchdowns, but looked out of place against Alahama, completing 11 of 17 for 53 JORDAN JEFFERSON yards and an interception. He went undrafted and unsigned as a college free agent. It wasn't until the Bucs invited him to Tampa for a tryout at their rookie minicamp last weekend that Jefferson got a chance to prove he can play in the NFL. He made the most of the opportunity and warranted a contract and an extended look through the summer. Cris caner Confesses Placing Bounties On Opposing Plavers Former NFL receiver Cris Carter recently admitted to putting "bounties" on oppos ing players during his playing career. Carter says he did it for protection and also admits paying bounties for teammates of his while a player on the Minnesota Vikings in the late 90s. This supports the idea that bounties have been part of the game for decades prior to the actions of the New Orleans Saints "I'm guilty of it," Carter said. "It's the first time I've ever admitted it. But I put a bounty on guys before. I put bounties on guys. And the CRISCARTER guys tried to take me out, a guy tried to take a cheap shot on me, I put a bounty on him, right now." Carter also provided great insight regarding the concussion issue. Let Us cater Your Family Reunion Or Major Event This .Summerl call One Of Our

A Shepherd Who Cares Sheep are said to be in great need of a shepherd. Sheep have the inability to fend for themselves and are in need of someone to take care of them. Because they are so docile many prey try to take advantage of them and kill them. This week s lesson in John 10:7-18 teaches us the blessings of having a good shepherd A good shepherd cares for his flock and does whatever he can to provide and protect his sheep. Jesus informs the multitude that He is the means that no one can have access to the sheep without coming through Him. As the sheep of God, no one can get to you or have you unless they come through Jesus You are always protected as long as you stay under the protected care of the Good Shepherd. Good Shepherd. He presses His claim in forming them that there have been others (thieves and robbers) who came be fore Him but His sheep did not listen to their voices (vs. 8). There are people who are thieves and robbers that will come to try and take you away. Jesus exclaims that the thief comes for three rea sons: to steal, to kill, and to destroy (vs. C Sheep are kept together fE in a safe and secure location c to prevent harm from comZ ing to them Jesus says to c( them that He is the door for the sheep (vs. 7). In previ ous verses Jesus talked about a person entering by the t-gate ; He now makes it clear that He is the gate.

He does not come to take from your life but He comes to make your life full. He provides them with valuable information to help them understand the quali ties of a good shepherd He says, The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep (vs. 11). A shepherd does not take the life of his sheep; rather he gives his own life for them. A good shepherd makes life sacri fices for those entrusted in his loving care. Jesus contrasts another individual who is responsible for the care of the sheep He identifies this person as a hired hand The hired hand does not own the sheep, so when a wolf comes he will abandon the sheep and the wolf will attack the flock (vs. 12). A hired hand does not have a vested interest in the sheep. Jesus says the hired hand runs because he does not care about the sheep (vs. 13). The hired hands show up to do just enough and take long enough to get paid. The hired hand is not going to make any personal sacrifices NEW MT. ZICII M B. CHURCH, INC. 2511 E.

CREWS Sentinel StaffWriter Wally Ford started working for one of his uncles for a couple of years in his fu migating business. He was later able to go out on his own, and started A WF Fumi gation. "I gained a lot of experi ence working with my uncle, and after I went out on my own, I discovered this would be a great career for me." Mr. Ford said he was surprised not many African Americans were involved in this kind of business. "A lot of them work for companies that do this kind of work, but they don't own Q their own company. it "You need close to $250,000 just to get started, z because you have to get per -c mits and a lot of equipment.

Thursdays Ill 0 ,.... 6:00p.m. Channels Brighthouse 949 & 950 Comcast 20 Verizon 29 & 30 The HOPE (Hillsborough Organization For Progress And Equality) Organization has submitted a proposed or dinance to the Tampa City Council to address unem ployment. It's area of interest is to get employers to execute preference to hire residents of Hillsborough County. They also propose that ex felons be given a better op portunity by asking employers to allow them to be interviewed and not bas ing their final decision on their criminal history. The members of HOPE prioritized unemployment in Hillsborough County during their 2010 convention be cause its rate is 3% above the national average. Unemployment in Hills borough County is highest among African Americans (18%); Hispanics (13%); 16 to 24 year olds (18.8%); for those who didn't graduate from high school (23.1%), and 13.9% for high school graduates without further formal education. Working with HCC, members of HOPE said their research shows many of the people hardest hit by unem ployment not have a comprehensive skill set or experience in any of six iden tified fields: office and ad ministrative support occupations. sales and related occupations; food preparation and serving and related occupations; business and fi nancial operations occupa tions; healthcare practitioners and technical occupations and education, training, and library occupa tions. HOPE spokesperson, Carol Partington, said what is most important is the recognition of the disparity, and coming up with a plan to deal with it. "Through research of job training available in Hills borough County, a deficit of short-term comprehensive training emerged. That's when we developed what we felt was a solution. We brought our plan to Rob Wolf, Senior Vice President of Hillsborough Community College, and it was well ac cepted." According to Ms. Partington, HCC will assign staff to develop curricula at fast track 6-8 week job skill cer tificate programs for at least three of the six prioritized oc cupations.

,. ... Help For Children With Asthma Sturdv Bones At Anv Age Children with moderate, persistent asthma showed significant improve ments after taking an L-carnitine sup plement for six months. The children who took the supple ment showed gains in pulmonary func tion tests and childhood-asthma control tests during a study. Diabetes vs. Vitamin D Vitamin D is associated with lower risk of developing Type 2 diabetes, according to a study from Spain. During the study, results showed that the incidence of diabetes was less than 5% in those with blood levels greater than 18.5 nanograms of Vitamin D per milliliter of blood (ng/mL). The inci dence was more than 12% among participants with lev els below that. There were no cases of Type 1 diabetes among peo ple with levels higher than 30 ng/mL Treat Your Feet Treat your feet to a little pleasure with this stress-free remedy: Combine the following in gredients in a glass bottle. Seal and shake gently. 6 drops lavender essen tial oil, 5 drops clary sage essen tial oil, 4 drops vanilla C02 ex tract, and 1 Tbsp. cold-pressed veg etable oil. Just before bedtime, soak feet in warm water with mag nesium salt. Towel dry and slowly mas sage the 'Stress-Free Feet Blend' onto your feet soles ankles and calves. Afterward, dust skin with cornstarch to remove any oil that remains. Night And oav: Sleep Remedies Simple changes like dim ming the lights as bedtime approaches and investing in a nightlight to make evening bathroom drips less disrup tive will help you transition to or back into sleep. You can also try slipping into a warm bath and add a few drops of essential oils to your bathwater. Lavender and Chamomile are a great com bination for relaxation. Jasmine or Marjoram are soothing. Clary Sage and Rose are both used in aromatherapy for insoll"tnia caused by men tal agitation or overwork. You can also fill a small pouch with dried lavender, hops, melissa, chamomile and dill and put in or near your pillow. A lack of minerals, like cal cium and magnesium can cause you to wake up in the middle of the night and stay awake. Try Melatonin, a natural hormone that promotes sleep a couple hours before bedtime. Other herbal remedies in clude: Valerian Root, Chamomile, Kava Kava, Lemon Balm and California Poppy. Preserving and building bones helps prevent osteo porosis, a serious condition where even a sneeze can cause a bone to break. Post-menopausal women are particularly at risk, but everyone needs to be work ing on preventing brittle bones. You all know you need cal cium, but do you know that other nutrients are vital to bone health, such as: magne sium, potassium, vitamins D, C and K, as well as trace min erals of boron and strontium. Vitamin D is required for calcium absorption. To build better bones, eat low-fat foods, certain fish dark leafy greens and other veggies and fruits. Watch out for these bone robbers: colas, high-salt )I! foods, high-protein diets and excessive alcohol and caffeine consumption. Smok-N ing, taking certain g medication and having an inN active lifestyle also endanger bone health. The best exercise pro grams for osteoporosis is a combination of 5 routines: 1. Weight-bearing aerobic exercise, 2. High-impact activities, 3 Strength training, 4 Balancing routines, and 5 Flexibility exercises. Remember the more ac tive you are the stronger your bones will be. lAM POSITIV EDUCATING. INSPIRING. CHANGING PERCEPTION.

Cornel West, Activists Convicted For Disorderlv Conduct Cornel West leaves criminal court Thursday, May 3, 2012, in New York. NEW YORKTwenty ac tivists were convicted Friday of disorderly conduct at a protest over a contentious police pol icy, ending a trial that they used to spotlight their mes sage, but that prosecutors said was about the conduct of the protesters, not the police. A Manhattan judge con victed all the defendants in one of the biggest political protest group trials in the city in recent years. It drew extra attention for counting Princeton Univer sity professor and civil rights advocate Cornel West among the defendants, ar rested Oct. 21 while standing in front of a police station door to protest the stopping, question ing and sometimes frisking of hundreds of thousands of peo ple annuall y Convicted of an offense that is classified as a violation not a crime, he and 18 of the others were sentenced to time served the relatively brief period they were in custody after their ar rests One defendant, a per formance artist who had gotten into a vehement ex change with prosecutors on the witness stand, was sentenced to two days of community serv ice. The demonstrators stood in front of a Harlem police precinct carrying signs and chanting slogans opposing the stop-and-frisk tactic. Prosecutors said the pro testers blocked the sidewalk and stationhouse entrance and ignored an order to move, even after a police captain went to them one-by-one to warn that they would be arrested.

Fire officials say the boy s hand got caught in the parking lot gate as it started to rise.
