SONIA FRANKLIN President, Sisters Network, Tampa Bay Dr. Johnson defines a risk factor as "anythi ng that increases your chances of getting breast cancer. Some risk factors are genetic, envi ronmental reproductive, or age-related. However, Dr. Johnson said, having a risk factor does not mean that the person will get breast cancer. He explained that genetic breast cancers are approxi mately 5% to 10% of all breast cancers Genetic test ing is usually necessary for BRAC1 and BRAC2 genes. Unlike blood tests to de tect prostate cancer in men, there are no blood tests for breast cancer in women. But, environmental factors can include alcohol intake, little or no physical activity, post menopausal obesity, higher education or socioeconomic status.

Citv Kicks on 'Screen On The Green' Movie Series BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel City Editor This summer the City will introduce a new concept for downtown Tampa. Through a partnership, with several other organizations, they will offer a series of movies. This is the first time that the city has attempted such a venture. Entitled "Screen On The Green," the first movie will be shown (today) Friday, May 25th, at the Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park, 6oo N. Ashley Drive. Mayor Bob Buckhorn said, "I'm excited about it. It is an opportunity for families and children to come down town and experience the river, the parks, and be ex posed to parts of the city that they may never have seen be fore. "We are really trying to energize our downtown parks and bring people downtown. We want to make sure that folks know that downtown is everyone's front door and I will be down there with my two daughters to watch the movie. The event is free and de signed for the entire family. All of the movies featured are rated G or PG and will begin at dusk with short anima tions. The series will feature a different movie throughout the summer every two weeks. The first movie that will be shown on May 25th is "Kung FuPanda:z." "Raiders of the Lost Ark" will be shown on June Sth. The last movie showing for the month is "Shrek," which will air on June 22"d The month of July begins with the showing of "Willy Wonka and the Choco late Factory," on July 61h. On July 201h, the movie "Beetlejuice" will light up the screen. The series ends on August 3'd with the showing of "Puss 'n Boots." The "Screen On The Green series was launched by the City of Tampa Parks and Recreation Department and the Tampa Downtown Partnership. Greg Bayor, the new Di rector of Parks and Rec re ation credits Ms. Linda Carlo with coming up with the idea "I was talking to my programmer and she said the Mayor wanted to keep the parks active during the sum mer, so she came up with the idea." He said the idea became a reality once it was discussed with their downtown part ners.


Features council Discusses VFW To Host Annual N Imposing Night Memorial oav Program i Club Regulations On Thursday, among the agenda items the Tampa City Council discussed was im posing night club regulations. The need to impose the regu lations is centered around what one Council member said was a pattern of prob lems at Club Manilla on 7'h Avenue. Councilman Frank Reddick established the fact that the club does have security personnel inside the club and off-duty officers outside Councilman Reddick said he hoped someone from the club would have been at the meeting to explain why the problems are occurring and what they are doing to correct them, but the owner, Fred Schwartz, nor any other representative of Club Manilla was present. Representing the City's legal department, Rebecca Hert explained that the City does not have the legal ability to regulate night clubs. "What I would suggest is something that would allow us to regulate the business permit. That would cover all night clubs in the city. We also must clearly define what a night club is. We've modi fied our amendment to say if there is a cover charge or minimum drink requirement, a dance floor, and you're open to the public in the late evenings, you're operating a night club." l!ert also said the size of the crowd determines how many off duty police officers have to be hired. "We have to determine if a club is a nuisance before it can be shut down through city action, said Hert. "Certain criminal activity also plays a role as well as vi olations such as illegal sale of alcohol to minors and drug possession. Some violations can result in the revocation of the club's operating license. We also want to recommend that bouncers at clubs be licensed security guards." Councilwoman Lisa Monte Hone said the city is not reg ulating alcoholic beverages, but trying to adopt night club regulations. You can sell alcohol all night long, but not actually .run the night club that long. We can regulate the hours of operation of a night club, but not the sale of alcohol." Councilman Reddick pointed out that you can go in a club at the age of 18, but you have to be 21 to buy alcoCouncilman FRANK REDDICK hol. Dr. JeannaMastroDicasa, a former Gainesville City Commissioner, and current Assistant Vice President for Student Affairs at the University of Florida, said you can't regulate hours of operation or the age limit at night clubs. "We also discovered you can't regulate excessive drink specials or the club's li censes." Councilwoman Montelione said she wants to see the city hold the bar I club owners responsible. "I'd like to see us find a way to hold the right people accountable. Holding em ployees responsible is a concern of mine. I also understand in some cases, the property owner and the person running the night club may be different people. "In some cases, the property owners are not aware of what's going on at the club, and I think they should take action." Councilman Reddick wanted to know if there are clubs in the area that start at age 21 for patrons. The answer was the Hard Rock Casino is the only one. "I think underage drink ing will continue to be a problem especially if you can get in at the age of 18," said Councilman Reddick. "Someone inside the club is buying/giving the t8-year olds alcohol, especially with the drink specials. I don't think 18-year-olds should be allowed to go into establishments that sell alcohol. The Council decided to not make any decision at this time on imposing any regula tions. Reporter Leon B. Crews can be reached at (813) 248-0724, or emailed at lcrews@jlsentinel.com. BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel City Editor More than a decade ago, several military-related or ganizations joined forces in honor of Memorial Day.

HOLTON Sentinel City Editor Recently, an article printed in a newspaper analyzed the data pertaining to a list of potential ineligible voters. The analysis reportedly revealed that the majority of the names on the list were African Americans and Democrats. Supervisors of Elections purged a combined 7 ,ooo names from the voter rolls during the first four months of the year. The list included individuals who are not legal citizens and convicted vot ers. The published article said, "A Times/Herald analysis of four months' worth of data from the state Division of Elections shows that 6,934 people were removed from the rolls in the first four months of 2012 follow ing felony convictions and that Democrats were three times more likely to be removed than Republicans. "Of that total, 3,550 or 51 percent were registered as Democrats, and 1,206 or 17 percent were registered as Republicans. Another 1,614, or 23 percent, were regis tered with no party affilia tion. "Here's the racial break-down of felons removed from the voter database in 2012: Whites accounted for 3,018 or 44 percent, and blacks accounted for 2,956 or 42 percent. Hispanics accounted for 6o8 or 9 per cent. "The five zip codes that accounted for the largest number of civil rights revo cations were in Jacksonville and Tampa. Jacksonville, the state's largest city, had the most purged felons (928). Tampa had 797, Miami 367, Orlando 222, and St. Petersburg 174." Travis Abercrombie, spokesperson for the Hillsborough County Supervisor of Elections, said the list of purged names was statewide and were primari ly of illegal citizens. "We receive names every day electronically. Once we receive the names, we must generate a certified letter that gives the person 30 days to respond, if the infor mation is incorrect," he said. However, Abercrombie said the voters do not hav e to wonder if their names are on any of the lists generated statewide. He said the sim plest way to know is to go to the Hillsborough County Supervisor of Elections web-site, enter the requested information, and complete the boxes. "Voters can visit the web site and update their infor mation. If there is an error, then that person will have the opportunity to correct it prior to the election. If the person is a convicted felon who has had his or her rights restored, then that person only needs to show proof." Abercrombie said if resi dents check their voting status early, then it will elimi nate any problems that may arise during an election. He also said, if there is a prob lem, then the voter will have time to correct it prior to the election. Once on the website, select My Registration Status." The person then only needs to enter his or her last name date of birth, and the numbers in that person' s address. Once the informa tion is submitted, it quickly reveals that person' s infor mation and voter status Abercrombie said any one with questions or who is seeking additional information can contact the Hillsborough County Supervisor of Elections Office at (813) 744-5900. Citv To Launch Its 'First' Do10estic PannershiP Registrv BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel City Editor Last month, members of City Council approved the first Domestic Partnership Registry in the Tampa Bay Area. The Registry affords certain rights to unmarried individuals who enroll. People wishing to sign up for the Registry will have the opportunity to do so begin ning on Monday, June 25, at 9a.m. Mayor Bob Buckhorn said, "As Mayor, I welcome this new opportunity to ensure that all citizens of the City of Tampa have the same basic rights and to spread our spirit of inclusiveness. This is a community that treats everyone with dignity. We are a City that celebrates our diversity as strength." The ordinance that created the Registry defines it as a domestic partnership between two individuals who live together and share a common domestic life. According to the ordinance that created the Registry, it gives the following rights: "To visit his or her partner in health care facilities; to make certain health care decisions for his or her partner; to make funeral and burial decisions for his or her partner; to be notified as a family member in case of emergency; to be designated his or her partner's preneed guardian; and to participate in the education of his or her partner's children." However, the Registry clearly states, "Nothing in this article shall be con strued as recognizing or treating a registered Domestic Partnership as a marriage., Some of the requirements for the Domestic Partnership are: The participants must be at least 18 years old and competent to enter a contract. Neither person can be cur rently married under Florida law or in a domestic partner ship or a member of a civil union with anyone other than the co-applicant. The partners cannot be related by blood, they must reside together in a residence they share, and both are required to register in person at Tampa City Hall during the designated hours, among other requirements. Tampa became the first city in the bay area to approve and enact a Domestic Partnership Registry. The ordinance was apP.roved on April 5, 2012.

NURSING HOME NEGLECT OR MEDICAL MALPRACTICE ALL SERIOUS INJURIES. Travvon Manin Moments Before He Died TRAYVON MARTIN .. In 7-11 Convenience Store Before He Was Shot and Killed A 7-11 store video provides a glimpse into the final moments of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin just before he crossed paths with George Zimmerman on Feb. 26, in Sanford, Florida. The video shows Trayvon purchasing a can of Arizona ice tea and a pack of Skittles at a 7-11 minutes before he was shot and killed by Zimmerman, a neighbor hood watchman. Trayvon, wearing a dark gray hoodie, is seen walking to the cooler at the rear of the store and then proceeding to the counter to pay for his purchases. Moments later, as he returned to his Dad's house in a nearby gated community, Trayvon was shot through the heart from intermediate range of about 3 feet, according to the autopsy report. The finding disputes Zimmerman's account that Trayvon was on top of him beating his head into the pavement when he fired his handgun at close range in self defense. Studv: Hall 01 Wronulv Accused Prisoners Are Black A new registry compiled by two major universities reveals that more than 2,000 prisoners were incor rectly imprisoned for serious crimes since 1989. After perusing the registry, it has been uncovered that more than half of the newly exonerated prisoners were African American, according to Newser. The University of Michigan Law School and Northwestern University School of Law worked in tandem to compile the data and found that 5 out of 10 falsely accused defendants were Black and 9 out of 10 were male. Before now, there was no official recordkeeping arm or prisoner exonerations and the schools say this is the most-com-plete listing ever created. DNA evidence seemed to be the thread that unbound the prisoners from their premature fates, with many of the arrested charged with homicides and sex crimes. Two-thirds of the exoner ations came by way of DNA testing and nearly one-third of the 416 false homicide convictions were exposed due to genetic testing.

Local Tampa Citv Council wants RNC Gun Ban Florida Governor Rick Scott said no to Tampa's call to regulate guns during the Republican National Conven tion, but City Council mem bers haven't pushed the issue aside yet. Council members agreed to ask the Secret Service De partment of Justice and the region s congressional dele gation to do what Gov. Scott and Legislature haven't: ban concealed weapons from the RNC Event Zone The plan was the result of a discussion by Council mem bers of Mayor Bob Buck horn's 18-page Event Zone ordinance that lays out the rules for protesters likely to fill the streets, sidewalks and parks during the convention from August 27th to the 30th. The Council gave final ap proval to the plan with a 4-2 vote. Council members Yvonne Capin and Mary Mulhern said no, and Coun cil Chairman, Charlie Mi randa, was absent during the vote. Members of the Occupy Tampa group provoked a strong response from Councilman Frank Reddick, who was angered by the group's actions of writing on the sidewalk outside City Hall in chalk and leaving messages in bathrooms inside the building. Orient Park Cleanup A Big Success County Commissioner, Leslie "Les" Miller, said his office had been receiving complaints about areas of the Orient Park community, and its perceived lack of attention by Code Enforcement and other county agencies. "The complaints ranged from overgrown fields and lots, to abandoned houses, and people operating busi nesses from the driveways of their home," said Comm. Miller. "Residents in the area were feeling neglected, be cause they said there were lots, fields, and overgrowth in the area that hadn't been cut for years." Through Comm. Miller's office, Hillsborough County Code Enforcement's "Operation Fight The Blight" was launched on April 2nd, and 30 days later, county of ficials said the cleanup effort was a big success. According to County Communications spokesper son, Carol Michel, nearly 100 tons of trash was col lected, along with debris and junk from the Orient Park area. "As a result of the opera tion, 494 properties were in spected by Code Enforcement, and 268 cita tions were issued for various violations, including overgrowth, inoperable vehicles, and abandoned property. "Also, 1,607 discarded tires were picked up, 300square-feet of graffiti was cleaned from buildings and fences, 61 dumpsters contain ing 96.93 tons of trash and debris was collected, and a house in the 6500 block of 26th Avenue was condemned and demolished." The boundaries for the cleanup were from North 62nd Street east to North 76th Street, and from Colum bus Drive north to Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard. Code Enforcement teamed up with Orient Park residents and Tampa Electric Company workers, along with several other county agencies, including Affordable Housing Services, Animal Services, Parks, Recreation and Con servation, and Public Utili ties. Also, Code Enforcement officers conducted a sweep to reduce crime and help create a safe environment for fami lies. Michel said 242 resi dents came to their drop-off site with debris and other items.

MOSES BROWN Music Students To Showcase Talents During Recital BY GWEN HAYES Sentinel Editor It saddens Mrs. Helen Morrison when she thinks about the reality that there are not as many young people who enter the arts, especially piano training, as there were some years back. More parents are working longer hours and are unable to get their children to the classes. Then, because of the longer hours, parents are not able to enforce the at-home study that is so necessary. "Piano study promotes transfer of learning, concen tration, discipline coordina tion, self-control, a sense of accomplishment and a healthy, positive attitude. En joyment and fun are the ulti mate benefits," she explains. Mrs. Morrison, a re tired educator, still trains stu dents at her studio, Morrison Music Studio Genesis, Inc. A glimmer of hope how: ever, brings a smile to her face when she talks about the 12 students she is currently training. These students will have an opportunity to showcase their talents on Sunday, June 10, 2012, 4 p. m. at their "End of the Year Gathering and Recital. The promotion and awards event will be held at the University Area Commu nity Center. The public is in vited and encouraged to come support the students. National Two of the current stu dents were participants in last weekend's Mid-State Music Teachers Association Schol arship Competition for stu dents up to 5th grade. Cenai Dugue and Robert Morrison, Ill, received Honorable Mention. Twenty-eight stu dents participated. On Wednesday, May 23rd, students were participants in a music festival. Ann Hawkins, a retired Theory professor at the University of South Florida, shared point ers on the students' perform ances. Students who will show case their talents are: Kiddy Keys," with concentration on ages late 3S to 5-year-olds, Susie Clark, Drew Harvey and Gloria Sanchez. This is a new group and they have done very well," Mrs. Mor rison stated. Other students are: Begin ners, Markayla Hayes, Raliyah Turner, Triniti Youngblood and Aviana George. Early Elementary Group: Cenia Dugue and Robert Morrison, III. Late Elementary Group: Gabrielle -Morrison and Edward Morrison. The lone adult is Pat Comme dore.

The video was uploaded to YouTube where it garnered millions of hits. The mother S _akia David, 24, told NBC10 she left her son, Saimeir Bush, in the care of a babysitt er earlier this month. The babysitter, along with an acquaintance whom Sakia says she did not know, took Saimeir to the Federal Laundromat in Camden a couple of weeks ago. Sakia told NBC10 she had no idea what had hap pened to her son until she saw the video footage on the evening news. Sakia said she asked the babysitter about the incident, but the babysitter denied that was Saimeir in the video. Sakia said she believes the incident was an accident and that the unidentified male was playing with her son when he put Saimeir in the washer. All the same, Sakia says she won't use the Unidenti fied baby sitter again. Nobody should ever put a child in a washing ma chine, said Saimeir's grandmother Doreen Bey.

She later graduated from the University of South Florida with a degree in Sociology. "As a student in high I alw,ays wanted to help people," said Ms. Harris. ; I "I achfally started off studying engineering, but I was drawn toward a career that would put me in direct contact with other people. Now, I'm an administrative assistance with the School District-of Hillsborough County." Ms. Harris has just pub lished her first book, .JANICE HAlUUS "Looking Up Poetry and Quotes,., and she hopes the public will. enjoy it. "It took me 9 months to finish it and get it published," said Ms. Harris. "The book contains poems and quotes I wrote, and I credit my co-workers for encouraging me to go forward with the book." Ms. Harris said because she got married at a young age and found herself raising 3 children, she needed stability, so she wasn't able to do the kind of work she really wanted. "When you have children, your priorities change," said Ms. Harris. -They become the most important things in your life, and they always come first." Ms. Harris said she's always been fascinated with the Renaissance Era, and enjoys writing and reading. "I hope people will get inspiration from my poems and quotes," said Ms. Harris. "I'm working on another book now, and I expect to have it published before the end of the year." Ms. Harris's book is available at Barnes and Noble Book Stores, online, or through Amazon. MODI Credits God For Acquinal II Son On ADIDIPIId BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel City Editor Although a jury recently acquitted Gerald Jones of attempted murder, he IS not free. He is currently serving a sentence of 364 days on two other charges. However, mother, Ms. Tesa Chatman, said, "I was just praying that he did n't get a life sentence. I feel he dodged a bullet. "He had a very good attorney and I know the jury made the decision to acquit him, but I know that it was the will of God. It was a miracle because God stood up for my son." The Hillsborough County Sheriffs Office arrested Jones on Valentine's Day and .charged him with atte.mpted second-degree murder; aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, (firearm); trespassing on property other than a struc ture; and criminal mischief.

Jones claimed selfdefense, admitting that he had gone to purchase a half pound of "hydro marijuana from Drake, who admitted to being a dealer. Ms. Chatman said her son knows how fortunate he is and plans to change. "My son is sorry for it and he has repented. He has been given another chance and he needs those 364 days to get his head together. I hope he takes this chance to do something with his life. She further stated that he is talented and knows about computers and writing music, and she will continue to pray for him. "I hope he out and makes the right decisions. I realize that it could have been the other way. He could have been the one who got shot in the head."

The movie is light and fun, and the charming Smith reminds us why he is one of the world's most well liked movie stars. Smith and Tommie Lee Jones return with the 'Men In Black 3' sequel, which ar rives 10 years after "Men in Black!!." Director Barry Sonnenfeld has never been able to recapture the mag i c of the original film from 1997 and the joys of the lightning-in. a-bottle pairing of Smith with the great Jones and his drier-than-the-Sahara delivery.

Jackson's "rare intact major collection" has just been discovered, but rather than securing the financial future of his three childrenPrince, 13, Paris, 12, and Blanket, 8 lawyers are battling to reverse its $87 .7M sale to an undis closed international busi nessman. Appraiser Eric Finzi said the 182-piece collection, which has never publicly been seen, has "an invalu able pedigree for future sales in the international art mar ket". He added: "Michael's mystique in life combined with this exposure of his wonderful fine art creations following his tragic death will escalate the value of these works and the popu larity of his artistic vision worldwide. I do not think we have begun to see the true value of this fine art yet." The collection is made up of drawings, sketches and sculptures made by Michael Jackson over a number of years while being taught by an Australian artist and friend, Brett Livingston Strong. Among the artworks are sketches of Martin Luther King, Pres. Abraham Lincoln and Pres. George Washington, said to be worth in all, more than $8.1M, sketches of Jackson's own feet doing his sig nature dance move the Moonwalk and recreations of the Statue of David and Dying Slave, the masterpiece of Renaissance sculpture by Michelangelo. lil wavne Accused 01 Assauldng Fan For Trvlna To Take A Picture Lil Wayne might find himself back in legal trouble, all because he doesn't like to take pictures.

Crime Man Sentenced As Car-eer Criminal Gets 15Years SHAVAR BRAND ... Sentenced to 15 Years in prison A federal judge sentenced a man who pleaded guilty to selling illegal drugs to more than 100 months in a federal prison.

According to court docu ments, on two separate occasions, Brand sold a combined 47 grams of crack cocaine to an undercover Hillsborough County detective. The first sale took place on February 1, 2011. Two months later, on April 4, he sold crack cocaine and a handgun to the same undercover detective. Brand was charged with the sale of crack cocaine, and being a convicted felon in pos session of a handgun. The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives con ducted the investigation.

The family of one local vet eran will not only spend this weekend reflecting on all their loved one gave to our country, but the legacy he leaves for the African American community. The late Dr. Raleigh Howell Allen, Jr., was a Bay area native, born in Seffner in 1924. He made history in the early 1950s as the first Black to pass the State Board Veterinary Medicine Exam in Florida. That accomplishment was major, because in those days the white administrators of the test made passing it difficult for Blacks. When the Coloreds, as we were called then, went to get their license, the administrator would raise the required score needed to pass," explains Dr. Allen's daughter, Hollianne AllenWright, repeating a story passed through generations. "My dad's score was so high, that had they raised it just one notch, eyen the whites DR. RALEIGH H. ALLEN, JR. taking the test would not have passed. Dr. Allen's impressive feat was featured years later in Jet Magazine. He went on to practice at his own office in Keystone, near the area now known as Citrus Park caring for bulls horses and other large animals. However, lack of demand for his expertise led him to relocate to Alabama, where he got a job at Tuskegee University as head of the school's Veterinary Medicine Department. Dr. Allen's lists of accomplishments are many. His first wife, Mary Frances Allen remembers the years prior to college when he served in the U. S. Navy. "He was the youngest on the ship, the U. S. S. Decatur. There were a lot of Black college men on board and they were all quite brilliant, she says with pride. Dr. Allen held the job of Quartermaster, meaning he was in charge of navigatin g the ship The tasks of the job were foreign to him but Mrs. Allen says her ex-husband was a quick study at the young age of 21. The time in the military afforded Dr. Allen the opportunity to attend Florida A&M University, where he earned his undergraduate degree Through the years, he spent time actively involved in many civic and social organizations, including Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity. He was also inducted into Who's Who in the South and Southwest, for Outstanding Achievement. Dr. Allen died in 2011, but his legacy lives on in the Tampa area through his chil dren, grandchildren and great grandchildren, including his great grandson, Raleigh Howell Allen, V. This Memorial Day weekend holds an even more special mean ing for his family His birth day was Thursday May 24.

Going With Jesus There are many who have not accepted the reality that this place where we live is not our eternal home. This place on Earth is just a temporary layover until we move to a more permanent residence. But where will you move to? How will you get there? Jesus answers these ques tions in this week's scripture lesson, John 14:1-14. In previous chapters fore told them of being betrayed and denied by His disciples. He opens this chapter by encouraging them to not allow their hearts to be trou bled (vs. 1). It was not clear to get the best of you. He speaks to you today, don't let it trouble you. To prevent yourself from being troubled believe in Him (vs. 1b). What helps you to be less stressed and able to maintain your hope and faith is by trusting in someone greater than your self. Jesus is the one to go with it! as to why their hearts would Q be troubled, but life brings on many situations that would cause individuals to be trou Z bled. He informs that His Fa ther's house has many rooms (mansions) and He is going to prepare a place for them (vs. :z). The children of God must know arid believe that beyond this place, there is an other place of dwelling. That place is called Heaven and at the end oflife you will be able to dwell there, if you believe. The disciples had some difficulty understanding what Jesus was referring to or how to get there (vv. 3-5). Oftentimes Jesus speaks blessings and promises into your life and oftentimes how CC Regardless of what is oc curring in your life, do not C permit or allow your heart to ffj be troubled.

When God has given you directions and information believe that the way to get there is with Jesus. All of your blessings and promises go through Jesus. The way to dwell eternally with the Father is through Jesus. Jesus expects those who follow Him to know Him. Philip requests that Jesus shows Him the Father (vs. 8). Jesus replies that after being with you for so long do you not know Me (vs. 9)? Jesus believes that those who have spent time with Him should know Him. After all the things HE has done for you and the amount of time you have spent with Him, you should know Him. It is unfortunate that peo ple can spend a lot of time with Jesus and still not know Him. There are some people who have been in church for years and still do not know Jesus. Jesus wants them to know that He and the Father are in one another and the work that He does is the Father working through Him (vs. 10).

In order for that to happen you must be lieve in Jesus and have faith in Him. Consider the mira cles He performed; you can do even greater! Jesus leaves them with the promise that He will do whatever they ask in His name so that He will bring glory to the Father (vs. 13). The key to this verse is the latter phrase; to bring glory to the Father. Some people think they can ask whatever they want and He will just do it. The stipulation is that it brings glory to the Father. You can be where Jesus is and do what Jesus has done. The thing to remember is that you must go with Jesus. You have to have faith in Him and trust Him at His Word. 4818 N. Flor1da Avenue Tampa 33603 (813) 231-4817. (813) 270-9717 PASTOR H. D.

When this suf fers, our hair can too. Without enough shut-eye, our tresses simply won t grow as thick or as fast, and they will often lose their shine and bounce. Worse than lackluster hair is losing it altogether. A lack of sleep has been shown to affect the body s immune function hormone secretion and physical and mental stamina. Hair is very sensitive to changes within the body, and hair loss is nearly always the conse quence of an internal distur bance That internal disturbance is often stress something that goes hand and hand with sleep deprivation. In addition to getting enough zzz's, you can pamper your slumbering strands with a nighttime masque or leave-in conditioner. You can also treat your tresses to a silk or satin pil lowcase. Besides feeling de lightfully soft, the smooth surface creates less friction so it' s easier on your locks when you toss and turn. This can not only help prevent hair loss and breakage overnight, it can also keep your hairstyle in check possibly avoiding the dreaded bed head when you wake. Your Bones Need More Than Mlllll Pay attention to this info if you are over age so, have a family history of osteoporo sis, or are a woman who has gone through menopause, because your bones may be more vulnerable. 1. Add almonds to every thing. They're packed with bone-strengthening calcium. Just an ounce, about a hand ful, provides 70 mg calcium. 2. Have calcium supplements easily accessible Cal cium is best absorbed in two doses of soo or 6oo mg taken at least three hours apart. Choose a brand that has vitamin D, too, which your body needs in order to use the calcium. 3 Drink one cup of tea a day. That's all it takes to in crease your bone density by 5 percent. That translates to a 10-20 percent reduction in fracture risk! 4 Jump rope for 10 minutes every day. It's one of the best all-around exercises for building bone. This exercise requires coordination, and if your bones already happen to be thin, the last thing you want to do is fall. 5. Try some coleslaw or stuffed cabbage rolls for din ner once a week. Cabbage is rich in vitamin K, a vitamin that helps turn on a bonebuilding protein called osteocalcin. 6. Order your pizza topped with sardines and spinach. You'll get a ton of bone-protecting calcium in every bite. 7 Add nonfat powdered milk to soups, casseroles, baked goods and drinks. It's an easy, unobtrusive way to sneak more calcium into your diet, particularly if you don't like drinking milk. 8. Learn to cook with yo gurt. Many cultures, particularly Indian, use yogurt every day in cooking. 9 Choose brown rice over white rice. It' s got three times the calcium. 10. Get your calcium in un expected places, like cal cium-fortified orange juice and calcium-fortified cere als. Foods That Fight Cellulite Follow these three food rules for smoother skin and a sleeker you. Hydrate! Anytime the skin is well hydrated, it will look sup pler and healthier. On your tush, thighs and other spots prone to cel lulite, a thicker, plumper skin layer will better cover the fat cells underneath. Aim for about 81/2 cups of water per day. Count the water that' s in your glass, but focus as well on what you put on your plate. Don't love water? Foods that contain large amounts of H20 can help you reach your daily goal Not only can snacking on these hydrating eats help you look sleek, but you11 trim down, too! Women who took in more fluid from water-rich foods, such as apples, grapes and cucumber, had a smaller waist and a lower body-mass index than those who took in fluids from beverages, a study in the journal Nutri tion reports. Get snacking! Eat Colorful Veggi.es Colorful veggies are loaded with vitamin C, which is essential to preventing col lagen breakdown. Collagen is the skin's support structure and when strands of the tissue running through fat attach skin to the underlying muscle layer. When these strands weaken, skin loses elasticity and fat can pop up and bulge against the skin, rendering the bumpy layer underneath even more visible Vitamin C is linked to col lagen synthesis. What's more, the super_ vitamin can help you blast up to 30 percent more fat during exer cise Aim for at least 75 milligrams of C daily Eat Whole Grains Refined grains such as sugary cereal, white bread and white rice are converted into blood sugar (glucose) so quickly that they send your insulin sky rocketing. The postmeal insulin spike signals the body that it should store fat rather than burn it. All this new and excess fat makes cells full, so they're even more apt than usual to push through connective tissue and look lumpy. Avoid refined carbohydrates and stick to healthy whole grains, such as brown rice, oatmeal and popcorn, which won't take you on a blood sugar roller coaster. Bonus: They also have more filling fiber-which means no drastic insulin jump and thus less fat packed onto your hips-to help you eat less overall. Get at least half of your six daily servings of carbs from whole-grain sources.

Desmond Hatchett, 33, of Knoxville has children with 11 different women. The state already takes half his paycheck and divides it up, which doesn't amount to much when Hatchett is making only minimum wage. Some of the moms receive as little as $1.49 a month. The oldest child is 14 years old. Hatchett explains how he reached such a critical mass: He had four kids in the same year. Twice. Back in 2009 when Hatchett was in court to answer charges that many DESMOND HATCHETT of the mothers were not receiving child support, he had 21 children. At the time, he said he was not going to father any more kids, but he ended up having nine more in the past three years. The state cannot order Hatchett to stop making babies. He hasn't broken any laws, according to the report. Marine Discharged For Anti-Obama Facebook Po.sts A Marine sergeant's Facebook posts about President Obama have led to his discharge from the military, in a dispute over free-speech rights in the workplace. Marine Sgt. Gary Stein, 27, a meteorologist at Camp Pendleton near San Diego posted comments and images on Facebook that allegedly disparaged President Obama, The Press-Enterprise reports. Screw Obama and I will not follow all orders from him," one of Stein's posts said. Stein also created a Facebook "fan page" -but not because he was a fan of his commander-in-chief. Marine Sgt. Gary Stein's fan page was called "Armed Forces Tea Party," and included an image of President Obama on a movie poster with the title "Jackass," the Associated Press reports. Another image of Obama was pasted onto a movie poster for 'The Incredibles," with the film's title changed to "The GARY STEIN Horribles. In a separate post, the Marine discharged for Facebook posts called President Obama an "eco nomic and religious enemy," The Christian Science Monitor reports. The Marine now faces an "other than honorable" dis charge for his anti-Obama Facebook posts: He is set to be demoted, and will be inel igible for veterans benefits
