iij Features co Protest Filed For Countv Contract Award Todd Pressman, who represents Pepper Contracting Services, Incorporated, has filed a formal protest with the Hillsborough County Board of Commissioners. At the basis of Pressman's complaint was the awarding of a contract for work on the Gornto Lake Road extension project in Brandon. Pressman said a contract was awarded to the lowest bidder, QGS Development, but they didn't meet the required DM/DWE require ment. "It is the policy of the BOCC that DM/DWBE's have the maximum opportu nity to participate on county projects," said Pressman. >-"The contractor to whom 'C award of the solicitation is e made shall take all necessary fE and reasonable steps to c ensure that DM/DWBE's have the maximum opportu>nity to participate in the conIC tract." Pressman said QGS Development was not tresponsive to this policy. fj: According to records, w t:i Q w C/) FREE Consultation* COMMISSIONER LESMILLER Pepper Contracting submit ted a bid of $4,019,062 for the project, and achieved 20.58% of the required DM/DWBE goal. QGS Development's bid was $3,949,000, but they only achieved 896 of the DM/DWBE goal. "I think the process is flawed," said Pressman. "What the county does is require all of the bidders to complete a Good Faith Efforts Questionnaire Evaluation.

That's how QGS was still able to get the contract although they didn't meet the required minority participation goal." Commissioner Les Miller said the contract has not been awarded and County Administrator, Mike Merrill, is reviewing it. "I agree that the company that was awarded the con tract didn' t meet the MBE standard. The process has been changed and there is a good-faith questionnaire that they have to complete. "Our staff is checking this out, and we're trying to see how this can be rectified. This is a very critical project, and we will make it right." Comm. Miller said he doesn't have an exact time table on how long the process will take, but he does expect a decision will be made within a week. "It's standard procedure to hold up a contract once a protest has been made." Reporter Leon B. Crews can be reached at (813) 248-0724, and can be e-mailed at lcrews@flsentinel.com.

eatures Inmate Accused 01 Trvinu To File Tax In Murder Vlcdm's Name JASON JAMAR WHITFIELD Earlier this month, offi cials at the Hillsborough County Jail learned that an inmate had divulged infor mation to file fraudulent tax returns. Upon further inves tigation, police learned that one of the people was the in mate s alleged murder vic tim. According to police, deputies learned that Jason Jamar Whitfield had al legedly provided the per sonal identification information of four people to someone outside of the jail. He also provided the person with specific instructions on how to go about filing fraud ulent tax returns in the vic tims' names. Police said Whitfield, 27, told the person exact amounts to enter on the IRS form and that the informa tion would fall in line with standard deductions and would generate a tax return check. After learning about the telephone conversation, deputies conducted an inves tigation and learned that one of the victims was deceased. The deceased person was 26-year-old Michael Massaline. Massaline was shot Oct. 24, 2011, while in the 2200 block of 131"1 Ave. Deputies who responded to shots fired in the area, dis covered Massaline lying in the yard between two du plexes. He had been shot in the upper body. Massaline died at Tampa General Hos pital. The Hillsborough County Sheriffs Office investigated the murder, and arrested Whitfield on charging him with second degree murder. Whitfield has been in jail since he was arrested in Osceola Co. His bond on the murder charge was set at $500,000. Jail records show that Osceola Co. has placed a hold on him, preventing him from bonding out of jail. Since the discovery of the tax fraud scheme on May 3nl, Whitfield has been charged with 4 counts of fraudulent use of personal information. The trial on the murder charge is set for later this year. Sheriff David Gee has placed increased emphasis on criminal activity based at the jails. He has placed spe cific emphasis on combating tax fraud at the jails.

The accident took place around 9 a.m. Monday at Port Manatee in Manatee Co. According to a press re lease from the Manatee Sheriffs Office, Mr. Robert "Dooley" Dixon, Jr., 48, was part of a crew of long shoremen unloading ba nanas from a ship. Dixon was reportedly walking across a loading area when he was pinned beneath a 5,500-lb. crane basket. He was pronounced dead at the scene. The Manatee County Sheriffs Office is investigat ing the accident and bas contacted the Occupational Safety and Health Adminis tration (OSHA) in reference to Mr. Dixon's death. A Tampa native, Mr. Dixon was the son of Robert Dixon, Sr., and the late Mrs. Betty (Thornton) Mack. He grew up in the Central Park Village Housing Complex. After graduating from Robinson High School in 1985, Mr. Dixon continued his education at Hillsbor ough Community College. MR.ROBERT"DOOLEY" DIXON, JR. His wife, Mrs. Antoinette Dixon, said Mr. Dixon attended HCC for about a year and then he enlisted in the U. S. Army. After serving his country for 10 years, he returned to Tampa and obtained em ployment with the Veteran's Administration. Two years later, he became a dock worker. Mrs. Dixon said her husband was not a member of a church, but visited different churches in the area. He was most recently visiting Heritage Christian Community Baptist Church.

nion's txS ..... :::E ).:' C( Readers Comment On FAMU Band's Suspension c BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel City Editor After the death of Robert Champion in November of last year, the Florida A & M University band was put on suspension. Earlier this week, FAMU President James H. Ammons extended the sus pension of the band until next year. c a: LL. c z c( c en w 1-&: w > w c w :I: en :J m D.. z Iii ...J ...J m ...J w z i= z w en c( c a:. 0 ...J LL. Some Tampa residents shared their opinion on whether the band should re main suspended. Andre Walker said, "No! I totally dis agree with Dr. Ammons'decision. Why should the entire band suffer be-cause of the actions of a few? I personally feel that Dr. Ammons should be replaced! He is a puppet to the state univer sity system. Dr. Ammons is equally responsible for what has gone on for years Ms. Twanda Bradley said, "Let's face it, hazing does not start overnight. Current and past students, band members and fac ulty knew that this has been happening for a long time. Yes, the entire band should be suspended. Maybe the stu dents, band members, and faculty will take hazing serious. It was a senseless death." Billy Wheeler said, "I IJJr" \*' t I graduated from Florida A & M, and as a Music Education major, at tended core classes with band members. While the one year suspension is a hard pill to swallow, I think it is pru dent and warranted in light of the student injuries and the tragic death of Robert Champion. There are other performance ensembles avail able for music students to earn the required recital hours. "More than solely intellec tual pursuits, many life lessons are learned in college. Thus, the suspension and any other measures that serve to ad vance the university and en hance the student experience get my unwavering support The practice of hazing must end forever. The March ing 100 will return, stronger, more disciplined and more To The friends of the Library determined to give a show worthy of its legacy. FAMU forever!" Dr. Samuel Wright said, "This entire episode is difficult for everyone, not only FA M U graduates, but those of us who support FAMU. The hazing incident was awful and it is vitally important that things are placed on hold until some matters are rectified. "Parents and others are frightened by what happened and must be reassured that something like this will never happen again. In this case, we must pause in order to move forward. We all know what revenue the band generates forFAMU!" Ms. Denese Meteye J a m e s ,...-------., said, "I did not attend FAMU, but attending the game was one of the high lights for my kids and myself when they played in Tampa "I was not into football but thoroughly enjoyed the halftime show as I still do when I travel to Orlando. I do not think there is any excuse for the death of this young man. I also feel that anyone re motely involved should be punished, even those who knew and kept quiet. I do not however feel that everyone should be grouped and pun ished together." Ronnie Moorer said, "No, I don't think the w h o I e FAMUband should be punished by a long term suspension. Why punish the innocent band members? "Only those who were in volved in the hazing should be punished, if found guilty. But I do feel the band should be put on probation and all haz ing stopped so that no other person is hurt or killed." Danny Green said, "I have deep sympathy towards Robert Champion's fa mily I do not feel that the entire band should be pun ished for the accidental death. However, the band member s that were involved in the death should be punished FAMU s band is a trademark in the state of Florida and their per formance will truly be missed throughout the country." Keto Nord Hodges said, ,..-------,"I am a Uni versity of s 0 u t h Florida alumnus, but have many acquaintances and extended family members who are proud Rattlers. I be lieve FAMU's band should be temporarily suspended for 1-year only to make a statement that FAMU and its President and Board will not tolerate criminal activity or disrespect of human life. "FAMU's leaders need to step back, re-evaluate the pro gram and culture of the band, and put processes in place that will make hazing unacceptable and prevent these actions from occurring again. In the real world, people go to prison for a long time for even acci dental actions which result in death." Maurice Kemp said, "I agree with the school's decision to keep the band off the field for one more year. "It' s the least that the University can do. Forget about the poten tial loss of dollars and focus on the potential saving of life and/or limb. More than a dozen band members were charged in the hazing-related death of Robert Champion. "Champion's death and the number of allegedly in volved students means this problem couldn't be more ur gent. This time-off is not to punish the innocent band members and other students; it's to protect them. Hopefully, F AMU will use the time off to make sure that they have proper measures in place to prevent future hazing inci dents. In addition, these anti hazing measures should be matched by pro-education measures which would mean a shift in focus away from the entertainment activities such as band and athletics and back to core reason why students attend the school which is of course to gain an academic or industrial education." James Ransom said, "The unfor tunate death of Robert Champion has resulted in severe punishment for the sev eral of his fellow band mem b ers. Th e ca reer s of som e FAMU admin i strators and staff members have been lost or tarn i shed. "FAMU has suffered in the court of public opm10n and may likely pay a hefty legal settlement. However, the "Marching 100" must slow down to correct its missteps. No band can replace the "100." They will strike again!" Howard Harris said, "I did not attend FAMU. I love the band. I love my grandchildren also. The band and my grandchildren must know that bad behavior is followed with _ynpleasant conse quences. Others knew of the hazing and that there was non student band members. They remained silent and now must suffer the results of that si lence." Ms. Louise said, "I do not believe the entire band should be disbanded. This band has a Vincent tory. There should, however, be a thorough investigation and revamping of the band's rules and regulations regard ing ne w band member initia tions." I U .I .., J ..:: J & ..{a '", 1 .r _..

Because I write this column people have a tendency to seek my opinion on whatever the current topic happens to be that captivates the public consciousness. From Trayvon Martin, George Zimmerman and the Stand Your Ground Law to why Mary J. Blige decided to sing about fried chicken in a Burger King commercial, I get grilled on just about every thing that comes around. So, of course, when I was approached several times about my feelings concerning President Barack Obama,s endorsement of Q same-sex marriages, I wasn't 0: surprised. My take on the u.. issue? I didn't see a problem. C All President Obama did was choose a side on one of >the most controversial topics ic( since legalized abortion was upheld with the Roe vs. w Wade decision. He could have easily pulled a Michael > Jackson spin move and a: moon-walked away from the question like it was a live w grenade. C Instead, he took the subject head-on knowing it was a no cn win situation, regardless of ::J which direction he headed. For any politician to take a D.. position like that during an z election year is about as i= courageous as someone leadw ...J ...J :l m ing the way through a mine field. Now President Obama is not only being criticized for the stance he took, but because he decided to take a stance in the first place. What his critics don't seem to get is that President Obama holds a job where he's respon sible for looking out for the best interest of every person who he took an oath to serve. Contrary to popular belief, President Obama is not just the Black president, the white president, the Christian president or even the gay president as Newsweek magazine labeled him on their cover. He is the Commander In-Chief of a country of over 300+ million individuals, each of whom navigates life with their own unique moral compass. When President Obama made the statement that he believed people should be able to marry whomever they want, he was simply standing by the United States Constitution, which protects the rights of every American citizen to live the life they choose as long as their / actions don' t infringe on the rights and freedoms of others. And, the last time I checked, gays and lesbians weren't forcing people to attend their wedTHOMAS E. PARNELL, ES

"'I Years Later 21 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------3: Death 01 Child Remains Unsolved 11 Years Later BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel City Editor Several years ago, a hit and run accident claimed the life of a child at an East Tampa intersection. No one was ever arreste d in the case. On Thursday, May 18, 1995, Carlos Cummings was going to a neighborhood store between 9 a.m. and about 10:45 a.m. Having b een suspen ded from the school bus he missed sc hool that day. As the child attempted to cross E. Chelsea Avenue at N. 39th Street, he was struck and killed The unidentified driver never stopped and the case remains open. Carlos was a second grade student at Mango Ele mentary School at the time of his death. He was 8 years old. Carlos was the third of four children born to Mr. and Mrs. Darryl (Andrea) Cummings. Had he lived Carlos would be 25 years old now. "It's been 17 years, but we are still hurting and our hearts are aching as if it were yesterday. We are pleading with anyone with any con structive information to come forward and share it with the authorities, Mrs. Cummings said. As a child of 8, Carlos wanted to do so many things. He wanted to be an artist and his mother said he had the talent because he could draw well. Time has not diminished the pain ofhis family feels for his loss And, it doesn t help that no one had been held ac countable for taking his life. However, his family keeps his memories alive. Twice a year, Mrs. Cummings decorates the corner where her son died. She changed the decoration at the stop sign this week in ob servance of his death. She also changes the decoration at Christmas time. Some times, she places stuffed ani mals at the base of the stop sign. Sometimes, she places a cross, but there are always artificial flowers. Mrs. Cummings real izes that nothing can bring her son back or relieve the pain she feels. However, she would still be grateful if someone with information about the case comes for ward. A spokesperson for the Tampa Police Department said, "The detectives are very f-ollc-w lJ4..........

It was rumored at the time of the accident that a young Black man was possibly a witness. "However, the rumor was that he was on the corner selling drugs. Now, 17 years later, he may be willing to come forward with some in formation." The spokesperson further stated that the child was struck by a large commercial a; type vehicle.

Sports Florida Judge savs R .apper luther Campbell Should Coach Football u. LUTHER CAMPBELL TALLAHASSEE, FL -A state administrative law judge says former 2 Live Crew frontman Luther Campbell should be allowed to coach football in Florida schools. Judge Robert Meale made his recommendation Tuesday. The state refused to certi fy the 51-year-old rapper although he' s been volun teering as an assistant coach with local approval in Miami. Education officials cited his songs' raunchy lyrics, a string of arrests and a per formance with two women who removed their clothing in South Carolina. Meale noted the charges were dropped, except for a couple misdemeanor gun crimes more than 25 years ago. He also wrote that Campbell has coached inner city youth and high school football without inci dent for years. owvane Wade Featured In Vogue Fashion Spread DWAYNE WADE And GABRIELLE UNION Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade has long been considered one of the best dressed men in the NBA, noticed as much for his bold style off the court as his explosive moves on the court.

S arts Brandon Marshall Michael vick New Anempt Filed 01 wrongdoing To Wed In June To Free O.J. BRANDON MARSHALL Bears fans can breathe a sigh of relief. According to an ESPN report, Brandon Marshall will be cleared of any wrongdoing from a nightclub incident earlier this year. Police have struggled to find evidence that Marshall was involved in a fight where a woman was struck. If authorities clear Marshall as expected, he 'll also likely avoid the ire of the NFL. While Commissioner Roger Goodell has a reputation for being tough with players who step out of line, he'll have little to say if Marshall is found not to be involved with the incident in March. An altercation occurred at a New York nightclub visited by Marshall and his wife, and a woman accused him of "coldcocking her." Marshall disputed her claims and said it was his wife who left the club bleed ing. He said last week that he was confident he would be cleared of any wrongdo ing. Serena, Sharapova, Kvitova, Venus Post WinslnRome SERENA WILLIAMS Rome Italy Last week's Madrid champion Serena Williams, reigning Rome titlist Maria Sharapova, Wimbledon champ Petra Kvitova and former world No. 1 Venus Williams were a quartet of winners Tuesday at the $2 168 million Italian Open tennis event, a chiy court French Open tune-up The ninth-seeded former top-ranked Serena blew past Kazakhstan's Galina Voskoboeva 6-2, 6-3 in an opening-round affair.

Pacquiao vs. Bradlev: The Banle 01 His lila MANNY PACQUIAO vs. TIMOTHY BRADLEY On June 9th, Manny Pacquiao (54-3-2, 38 KOs), 33, will fight Timothy Bradley (28-o, 12 KOs), 28, for Pacquiao's WBO welterweight title at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nev. While almost every fight involving Pacquiao is seen as merely a prelude to an inevitable showdown against Floyd Mayweather, it would be foolish to overlook someone of Timothy Bradley's class and skill. Considering what Bradley brings to the table, as well as Pacquiao's most recent performance against Juan Manuel Marquez, it is plau sible that we could be in for a thrilling and hotly contested fight. In analyzing Bradley's best attributes, it becomes clear that he possesses certain intangibles that will give him the chance to have success against Pacquiao. Bradley does have the skill and speed to hang with Pacquiao, and he will undoubtedly make this a tougher and closer fight than expected MICHAEL VICK And KIJAFA FRINK Michael Vick is set to wed his longtime fiancee in Florida next month. The Philadelphia Eagles quarterback will exchange vows with fashion designer, Kijafa Frink at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach hotel on June 30 The couple will exchange vows in front of an estimated 300 guests, including Vick's mentor Tony Dungy, coach Andy Reid and teammate LeSean McCoy. The 31-year-old first pro posed to Frink in 2007. LAS VEGAS A new lawyer for O.J. Simpson filed Tuesday to gain his release from Nevada state prison, saying the former football star was so badly represented by lawyers in his trial and previous appeals that he deserves a new trial. A 94-page document filed Tuesday in Clark County District Court in Las Vegas faults the trial strategy and performance of attorneys Yale Galanter of Miami and Gabriel Grasso of Las Vegas, but maintains Simpson's same basic defense. It says the NFL Hall of Farner wanted to recover from sports memorabilia dealers family photos and personal mementoes stolen from him after his 1995 acquittal in the Los Angeles slayings of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend, Ronald Goldman.

DETROITPastor Marvin Wmans' SUV remains missing as of Thursday morning and so do the men who punched, kicked and robbeq the famous gospel singer. Winans was pumping gas Wednesday afternoon at a De troit Citgo statioq on the corner of Linwood a:nd Davison when at least two men ambushed him. The carjackers took his deep purple Infiniti QXs6 SUV, a cou ple hundred dollars in cash and his watch. The legendary pastor is well known in Detroit and for his family's gospel music. Pastor Wmans said he felt something was wrong when he came out of the gas station's convenience store. He said sev eral men followed him out and assaulted him while he was pumping gas. They robbed him, punched him and even ripped off his pants. Pastor Winans says he's OK, but is more saddened that it has come to this. "This kind of nonsense just has to stop," he said Wednesday afternoon. "It's just the savage ness of what's happening in the streets. We just have to take a look at ourselves and say this has to stop," said Pastor Wmans. Winans went to a hospital Wednesday night to have his hand examined following the in cident. "Given the gravity of the sit uation, it was minor," said Wmans of the injuries he sustained to his hand. He said his finger would remain bandaged for about eight weeks. Winans said he was disturbed that this happened "in the middle of the afternoon and, at first, "nobody came to help." "Your life has to be bigger than sitting in a gas station and robbing innocent people," Wmans said in a message to his carjackers. Brevard Countv, Fla. Mom Kills 4 Kids, Then Hersell !iiiiiiiiiii PORT ST. JOHN, FL-In the middle of the night, Tonya Thomas' neighbors awoke to the sound of a gunshot and mo ments later heard a knock on their door. Three of Thomas' four chil dren were outside, including one who appeared to have been shot. Before the neighbors could offer help, Thomas came out of her house and called the children back home. They complied. the neigh bors dialed 911 after hearing more gunshots Brevard County Sheriffs deputies found Thomas, 33, dead of an apparent self-in flicted wound and three of her children-Jaxs Johnson, 15; Jazzlyn Johnson, 13; and Joel Johnson, 12-were fa tally shot inside the house. A fourth child, Pebbles Johnson, 17, was found shot to death in the front yard of a neighbor s house. Investigators said they didn t know a motive for the shooting and weren t sure why the chil dren followed their mother s or ders to return to the house. From what the neighbors said she was very calm She walked out and called them back. They turned around and w alked b a ck to the house," said s heriffs spok e sman Lt. Tod Goodyear. Anot her neigh bor to ld deput i es Thomas sent a t e x t message in the middle of the night saying s h e wan t ed to b e cre m a t e d wit h her children H e didn t s e e the t ex t unti l h e woke up this morning," Goodyear said. The shoot i ng happened in Port St. John, about 15 miles west of Cape Canaveral in an area known as the "Space Coast" because it is the home of NASA's Kennedy Space Center, the loca tion of numerous shuttle launches. went to Thomas' house on three successive days last month, according to dis patch records released Tuesday. In the first visit, on Easter Sunday, Thomas reported that her son had thrown a 6icycle through a window at the house The next day, she called to re port that her son had kicked and punched her when she tried to wake him up for school. The following day, child wel fare investigators visited the house to look into allegations of inadequate supervision of the children. The Department of Children and Families was following up on a report on a Johnson child who had been released from a detention facility and hadn't been picked up by a caretaker, DCF spokeswoman Carrie Hoeppner said in an email. Records showed Thomas was arrested in 2002 on a mis demeanor battery charge for striking Joe Jo}mson, the fathe r of her children. The charge was later dropped. Two years earlier, she filed a domestic vio lence complaint against Joe Johnson, but that was dis missed after a hearing. Jamie Hudson, whose mother lives two doors down f r o m t he family said the boys in t h e f a mil y w ere known to shoot B B s at a h o me a cross the stre et and had threatened to set it on fire. "It has been an problem on our street with them," Hudson said. Goodyear said Jaxs Johnson had recently been arrested on a domestic violence charge. He said he didn't know if the boy ha d been accused of hitting his mother or causing damage at the house. Austin Lewis, a 16-year-old classmate of Pebbles Johnson, said the family "had prob lems like everybody else, but nothing that drastic." He described Pebbles Johnson as "very loving and caring." "Always with a smile," Lewis said. "Didn't let anything affect her. She was always in a good mood." A pastor at the church the family attended described it as "normal stuff "I think he was punching some walls or something," said Jarvis Wash, pastor of the Real Church in Rockledge, Fla. Wash said the family attended services last Sunday but had been absent for a few weeks before that. "I don t know what could have happened in the past cou ple of days, Wash said.

The Hillsborough County Sheriffs Office reports that on March 27th between 8:30 a. m. and 9:30 a. m., Shedrick Partin, 23, hit his father, Samuel Partin, 61, in the head several times with a hammer and a door stop, causing head trauma, while he was lying in bed. Partin died from the injuries. During the execution of a search warrant at the resi dence in the 1900 block of Erin Brooke Drive in Valrico, deputies said a pair of gray and black books and blue jean pants were found in Shedrick Partin's bedroom with what appeared to be blood stains. Detectives said Shedrick was seen leaving the home wearing the same clothing earlier. Shedrick was also last seen wearing a black hooded sweatshirt with bright designs on the front. SAMUEL PARTIN murdered by his son as be slept A second witness reported seeing Shedrick returning to the neighborhood wearing the same sweatshirt. That sweatshirt was later recov ered by detectives at a home on Kelly Ridge Lane. The hammer and a white door stop were also recovered inside the residence with what appeared to be blood transfer. An autopsy on Samuel Partin determined the cause of death to be blunt impact to the head. Lab results revealed that Shedrick's black hooded sweat shirt matched his DNA profile. Also, blood recovered from the sweatshirt matched his father's DNA profile. On Monday, Shedrick was charged with second degree murder in the death of his father. He was already in jail on violation of proba tion charges.

N 0 known as DJ T-Money, said he credits being innovative and versatile as th_ e reasons for his successful DJ service The Leto graduate said growing up, his mother took him to a lot of R&B concerts. "Music has always been a part of my life. I think the concert that inspired me the most was an R-Kelly show." After trying his luck at selling CD's, about 5 years ago, Grady started buying his own DJ equipment "I started selling CDs with a partner, M-1, and now I'm getting a lot of work as a DJ. "I enjoy making people happy. I do a lot of research before I accept any job. I find out what kind of crowd is coming, and what kind of music they like. I'm confident enough at this point to be able to play whatever the crowd wants to hear, whether it be country-western or jazz." Grady said having his own equipment is also a big advantage. "I think what sets me apart from the others is I ex'THOMAS GRADY "DJT-Money' press myself through the music I play. That's my out let. "Anyone interested in doing this for a living, I'd ad vise them to do a lot of study ing about different kinds of music. Don't be afraid to spend a lot of money on your music, because that's what is making you successful."

Billy Spencer said he always knew there was some thing special ahead for him Growing up in Tampa, he al ways wanted to one day own and operate his own busi ness. Mr. Spencer said peo ple who saw him 15 years ago, never expected to see enjoying any kind of suc cess "But, 5 years ago, my life took a turn," said Mr. Spencer. "Now, I own New Market ing Movers and Excusive Design." Mr. Spencer said he started off delivering furni ture for a company that actu ally gave him a start into starting up his own com pany. "That gave me a lot of time to learn about the busi ness. For the past 4 years, I've worked for exclusive de signers like Paris Flea in South Tampa. That's where I learned the concept of inte rior designing." "While delivering furni ture, I found myself inside BILLY SPENCER the homes of people like the Glazers, and Randy and Paula White." Mr. Spencer said once he conquered that part of the market, he stepped out on faith and started selling high end furniture at affordable prices. "Now, I'm doing interior design assessments. I meet with my customers, we go over the catalogs, measure rooms, and then your order is taken. In 3 or 4 days, you get your order if the items are in stock. "We also include exclu sively, a free delivery within a 15-mile radius. Mr. Spencer said it took him 3 years before he actu ally started working more in dependently. "Now, I deal directly with distributors like Kanes, Ash ley, Rooms To Go, Haverty's, Hudson-Broyhill, Scan De sign, Z-Gallery, and others. Because I have little or no overhead, I'm able to keep my out of pocket expenses low, and my profits steady." M;r.

Resurrected The Merriam-Webster online dictionary defines res urrect as to raise from the dead; to bring to view, atten tion, or use again. The Bible teaches and speaks of the power of God's resurrection power. When you understand God's true abilitY to resurrect something you will no longer be limited to be lieving it is only in death. John records in 11:17-27, 41-44 a time God demon strated His resurrection power. This story is one that many believers can recite and recall. One of the most this day and time this is a long time. You may know of people who have been in funeral home twice as long as this! You may have a situation in your life that has been dead a long time. You may have had dreams, visions, hopes, and aspirations that have died. You had the hope that they would live and come to fruition, but they died. They have been dead for a while now. quoted verses: "Jesus wept" c is found in the story. This ii: lesson has a lot to offer a peru.. son who is struggling or dying in a situation. There is c( a lesson for all to learn. The sisters of Lazarus, Mary and Martha, have a host of people around thein to try and comfort them in their time of bereavement (vs. 19). This is typical of life. When you go through trying times, it is good to have people around to try to bring you some comfort.

One, there was somebody who knew that Jesus was coming. It is always good to have people around you when you are going through who can identify the pres ence of Jesus and the mani festation of God. Second, when one sister heard she re mained with those who com forted her. This sister chose to stay with people who could only ask if she was alright and rub her on her back and say, "It's gonna' be alright." Third, one sister left the comforters of man and went to the Comforter of God. If you really want to get some answers and some relief, you have to leave the comfort of man and come to the comfort of God. People can console you in your situation, but God can bring you out of it. If you had been here, my brother would not have died, says Martha (vs. 21). What faith! But I know that even now God will give you what ever you ask (vs. 22). Your brother will rise again (vs. 23).

There are some who believe that there is power in God, but think that it is too late for their situation. Jesus affirms her faith by saying he will rise again! God wants you to know that your situation that was alive, got sick, and died, can be resurrected. That life that has been lost because of drugs, violence, crime, or adultery can be resurrected. The resurrection is not in the comfort of man, but in the power of God. Jesus said that He is the resurrection and the life (vs. 25). Jesus is the one who is able to make it get up again and live. Jesus is the one who can bring your dead dreams and vision back to view again. If you want to ex perience the true resurrec tion power of God, leave the comfort of men and be drawn into the comforting arms and presence of God! Celebrates 36th church SUNDAY. MAY 20, 2012 11 A.

...... ., .. Local :u J< 3: Big Celebration Planned For 100th Binhdav BY LEON B. CREWS Sentinel SJaffWriter History books will tell you that in April1912, the entire world was in shock when news that the USS Titanic .had sank, claiming nearly 2,000 lives. About a month and a week after that historic news, a family in Marianna, Florida got great news when they welcomed their daughter, Edith Norman, into the world. Now, exactly 100 years later, Ms. Norman is still with us and preparing to cel ebrate her birthday. Ms. Norman came to Tampa at the age of 14 with her family, and they lived in the Hyde Park area. They all lived in a house that was de clared historic years later. Ms. Norman attended Dobyville Elementary School, and later BooKer T. Washington. A seamstress by trade, Ms. Norman also did do mestic work for attorneys a nd doctors in the area. Ms. Norman never had any children of her own, but e njoyed spending time with the children of her extended family. Mrs. Ruth McNair, a niece of.Ms. Norman, said she enjoyed traveling, and MS. EDITH NORMAN recently went to St. Peters burg for the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. parade. "She loves going to church, and she attended First Baptist of West Tampa along with her caregiver," said Mrs. McNair. Ms. Norman called the family's house in Hyde Park home and said four families lived together in the house until they all passed away, leaving her there alone. She now lives in a beautiful home in Temple Terrace. Recently, Ms. Norman got a big surprise when she received letters of recogni tion from Mayor Bob Buckhorn, and President Barack Obama, both wish ing her a happy woth birth day.

'r"r-...,...,....-----------------------..--------------..,.--"""""'"''t' :::D Treat Acne-Scars ettBreast The Benents 01 Jogging When it comes to beauty woes, acne scars are right up there with unwanted facial hair and nail fungus. While they aren t always easy to treat, there are ways to help reduce their appear ance. And with long term treatment, you may be able to remove. Why Do I Scar? The melanin in darker skins definitely has a part to play. Family history might have to do with it, so if scar ring is in your genes, then you may be more likely to ex perience problems. Severe acne can cause scarring, too. If you have se vere acne or are prone to scarring, it is especially im portant to treat the acne and scars early before scar tissue has time to develop (making the mark more difficult to treat). What Can I Do About Scars? Consider aloe It has natu ral film forming and antibac terial properties that can help heal skin The key is to treat the spot immediately; it's unlikely that aloe can provide any benefit when applied to aged scars. The same is true for scar removal gels or creams While these products won t remove scars completely they can diminish their ap pearance and work best when the acne scar is treated immediately. Make a microdermabra sion appointment. This exfo liation treatment removes the outer layer of skin (the epidermis) ; When done professionally, it has been shown to reduce the appearance of acne scars. Look into laser resurfac ing. Fractional resurfacing is one of the newest laser treat ments available. It increase collagen production, which can help to smooth out scarred skin.

ELECT BARBARA TWINE ------------FOR-----------County Court Judge "Let's Elect Barbara Twine County JUfllae'" 012 Making Progress: TunleStvle Be not ojraid of going slowly, be o.fraid only of standing still. Chinese Proverb Empowered greetings. Today I want to highlight a few life lessons we can learn from the turtle Individuals, organizations and governments around the world seek to make progress toward a bigger, better and brighter future. When we observe the turtle we can begin to understand that progress isn't always quick and easy. Progress can be slow, but steady. In order for a tUrtle to get to where it's going it has to take risks. It has to extend its neck out of its shell. To make progress in achieving your goals, you must come out of the shell of your lim ited beliefs and experiences and take the risk of explor ing other possibilities Risk is a requirement for growth. Without risk your progress will be hindered. Predators have difficulty clutching and crushing tur tles with their jaws because of their dome shaped shell. There will be people that will want to victimize you, prey on you and try to destroy you for their own gain. However, if you hide yourself in the cleft of the rock called Jesus, they will not be able to crush the destiny God has in store for you. It is said that turtles have exceptional night vision. Even when you are at your darkest moments in life, you must maintain exceptional vision. Despite what 'it may look like, you will succeed as long as you stay focused. Dark days and distractions will come, but they will not be fatal if you remain focused on your vision. No matter how slow your progress may be, keep it steady because today' s progress was yesterdays plan.

FBIIcUVeiV Pursuing Hate Crime Charge For Zimmerman GEORGE ZIMMERMAN George Zimmerman, 28, who has been charged with second-degree murder for the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martinon February 26, in Sanford, Florida, may soon be facing a hate crime charge from the FBI. Zimmerman admitted to killing Martin in February during a confrontation. However, he claims the shooting was in self-defense. He's facing a second-degree murder charge, which carries a maximum possible sentence of life in prison without the possibility of parole. But if Zimmerman is charged and found guilty of a federal hate crime involving murder, he could face the death penalty. FBI investigators are actively questioning witness es in the retreat at the Twin Lakes neighborhood, seeking evidence for a possible federal hate crime charge.

He joined the military at the start of the Civil War and later was politically active, championing civil rights and ascending to the state legisla ture. But his name was largely WILLIAM HENDERSON FOOTE lost to history after his 1883 murder in Mississippi by a white mob irate that he had protected a black man who was targeted for a beating. 10 Tips For Black Men Pulled Over Bv Police When NWA wrote F *ck the Police in the late 1980s, they were heavily criticized. At the time, the police brutality that they spoke of was a racial boogeyman that remained hidden due to the high cost of home video cameras. Rodney King changed all that, and it let America know that the relationship between Black men and the police usu ally left us at the short end of the baton. This is a list of things you should keep in mind when dealing with the police. Think about these issues carefully, for it might save your life: t) Be respectful, don't speak first, and don't speak with hostility: Getting smart with the cops doesn t make things better. For at least a short period of time, they have all the power and you have none. Settle your beef later on, when it's safe Also, you're probably better off not volunteering any information since many ques tions are designed to trap you into giving yourself up. 2) Learn your rights: Read short guides on what you should do if you encounter a police officer.' 3) Don't make any sudden moves and keep your hands on the steering wheel: Being a Black man already makes you suspicious in the eyes of some police offi cers. Don't give them anymore reasons to get out of line. 4) Ask for permission before you grab or reach for anything: Officers are afraid just like you are Any unexpected grabs set him/her off and make the offi cer believe that they are in danger 5) Keep a valid photo ID on you: If you have a dri ver's license, keep it with you. If not, then keep your student ID or something that allows the officer to know who you are. 6) Turn on the interior lights of your car so they don't mistake your cell phone for a handgun: The officer likely wants to know everything that's going on inside the car at all times. 7) Keep your license, registration, and insurance in a convenient place: If it's easy to reach, this keeps things simple and helps to avoid any confusion. 8) Don't lie to the officer: This is generally a bad idea. Lying will only add to any charges you might already have 9) Don't give the officer a reason to search your car: If they have reasonable suspicion that you're hiding something, the officer will then have probable cause to search you. Suspicious behav ior, such as shuffling through your personal items right before the stop, can set off alarm bells in the mind of the police officer. 10) If you are not sure that the person is a police officer, ask for some form of identification: People sometimes impersonate police officers and use the trust they are granted to do terrible things.
