"I was praying and hoping Christian would recover, but it didn't happen. Now, I'm talking with doctors about harvesting his organs." Messiah Love's grand mother, Ms. Georgette Williams, said she was with her grandson Tuesday night, but now the reality is setting in for him. "I lifted his spirits by giving him options on what to do next. We also discussed having a funeral for Christian. We will try to arrange for a memo rial service on June gth. "Messiah was reluctant about a burial, because he wants to keep Christian close to him. I suggested a private cremation, and he thought that was a great idea. That way, he will have the urn with 0 Christian's ashes, and ii: maybe that can be closure for I.L him in part."

I told the DCF worker I didn't want my son returned to the environment where he had been abused. But, the worker told me the mother had custodial rights, and I couldn't keep him.

According to Tampa Po lice, on Friday night, Can dace Mitchell, 24, Christian's mother, took him to Florida Hospital. After he was examined by doctors he was airlifted to Tampa General Hospital. Tampa Police spokesper son, Laura McElroy, said Mitchell has been charged with aggravated child abuse, because she waited 5 hours be fore seeking treatment for her son. "We are conducting an ac tive investigation to determine what happened to Christian. We were initially told the child was running in his home, and slip and fell. We were also told the child was in the care of the mother's boyfriend when the injury occurred. "I blame DCF for this," said Messiah. "If they would have let me keep my son, this might not have happened. I tried to tell them what was going on, but they kept telling me Candace was the caregiver, so I had to give Christian back to her.

"I wish there was some thing I could have done to pre vent this from happening," said Messiah Love. "I never was comfortable having my son around her boyfriend. According to arrest records, Safford was arrested September 23, 2008 on a charge of aggravated child abuse. He was sentenced to 10 years on December 13, 2010, but is currently serving felony probation on the charge. His probation period ends Decem ber 12, 2020 Mitchell is in jail with her bond set at $so,ooo. Ms. Williams, said she's upset about the entire ordeal. "Candace was already under investigation by DCF, because Messiah had con tacted them a week before this happened. She should have never been allowed to get Christian. "An aunt went to visit Christian a week ago, and she said he was sad, and she had never seen him like that before. She said when she and her husband tried to leave Christian grabbed them as if he wanted them to take him with them." Ms. Williams said after Mitchell's arrest, she tried to get the judge to deny them rights to visit Christian at the hospital. "There was an emergency hearing Sunday morning, and that's when DCF and the judge told us we could visit Christian. But we weren't actually able to visit him in the hospital until Tuesday. "Messiah is talking with an attorney to get advice on how to file a complaint against DCF." Police spokesperson, Janelle McGregor, said they are still actively investi gating, and it will take a couple of weeks for them to complete their investigation and decide if the charges against Mitchell will be upgraded. Voter APPlication OHice Opens In East Tampa The Florida Consumer Action Network (FCAN) has opened the East Hillsborough Voter Application Office and their goal is to reg ister 10,000 voters in the area. Tim Heberlein, FCAN Regional Director, and part of the support staff for this office, said they are looking for community support, and also reaching out to community leaders. The project is funded by Project Vote, a national organization that has registered hundreds of thousands of people across the country. "FCAN has been instrumental in getting people registered to vote in Florida," said Heberlein. "We're specifically targeting minority voters and those left out of the political mainstream. "We don't deal directly with rights restoration, but we do have information to refer people to those agencies. Heberlein said they are trying to get people in the University and Sulphur Springs area registered, as well as East Tampa. "We feel the right to vote is important and the upcoming pres idential election is crucial. As a matter of fact, Hillsborough County is critical in the re-election of President Obama. "We also want to get people more involved in local and state elections." Heberlein said they've worked closely with the Hillsborough County Supervisor of Elections Office to make sure people under stand what the process is all about, and how it works. The Voter Registration Office is located at 2802 East Dr. Mar tin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard, Suite C, next door to Computer Mentors. They are open from 9 a. m. until 6 p.m. s-days-a-week and on occasion, 7-days-a-week, depending on the need to reach the people. Reporter Leon B.

Wondered another elderly observer, "What makes peo ple think that complete strangers will offer to share thou sands of dollars with them?" However, what caused the elderly woman to lose thousands of dollars was not only her age but may have been her own greed. Yes, countless senior citizens in the Tampa Bay Area have found themselves victims of quick money scams. But their sad circumstances too often have hidden an even worse malady that does not only affect the elderly, but the youthful as well. Sadly, too many people continue to be propelled by the idea of getting something-for-nothing. Invariably, it always leads them to the loss of life-savings property or both.

Barthwell, 64, was the only Black member of Romney's 1965 class at Cran brook Schools and later attended Harvard Law School with Pres. Obama. He identifies himself as being politically independent, has donated money to both campaigns and has "tremendous respect" for both men, he said. SIDNEY BARTHWELL And PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA But whereas Pres. Obama struck Barthwell as "brilliant" at Harvard where the two became friendly while working to gether for the Black Law Stu dent Association -he recalled Romney's years at Cranbrook as nothing to write home about. "Mitt was not particularly popular. He was very, very ordinary. Barthwell also said he and those who know Romney are "baffled" by the lat ter's conservative views on the campaign trail, calling the governor a liberal minded person whose father was a "social liberal, almost a civil rights champion."

Of all the areas of East Tampa, that area had been known as a high drug, high crime area that most people in the city avoid. But, not Pastor Timothy Kemp and the members of Peace Progressive Primi tive Baptist Church. The church, located on Lake Avenue and 28th Street, sits directly in the path of hundreds of homeless and addicted people who wander the streets 24 hours a day. Pastor Kemp said it is those people he has been reaching out to for the past 5 years. "We staned feeding the homeless in 2007, and in the past year alone, we've fed 3,100 people, all out of pocket. The Tampa The Gospel Music PASTOR TIM01HY KEMP "The ministry for the homeless started with our Sunday School Superintend ent, Blanche Ryan. She wanted to enhance attendance at Sunday School, and suggested serving breakfast prior to Sunday School starting. From there, we just decided to open our doors to the entire community."

We have a listing of all the social service and other agencies that can help people get back on their feet. Every Sunday morning from 8 a. m. to 9 a. m., a full breakfast is served at the church, and Pastor Kemp said it's as good as you 'can get from any fast food restau rant. Pastor Kemp preaches from 7:30 a. m. until 8 a.m. for those who come in, and he also has a group of volun teers who help serve and cleanup afterwards. "I think we have a com prehensive program at the church. When a person needs clothing, a bus pass or other things we try to help them with that. "We're giving the people a hand up, not just a hand out. We want people to learn they have to take care of their own responsibilities." Pastor Kemp said he's heard some great testimonies from some of the people they've served, and some have given up drugs and joined the church.

Low-Income Students N 0 ...... BYTAMECAJOHNSON Freelance Writer Harvard University is ex panding a popular scholarship program in an effort to attract more students from low-in come families. Applicants accepted bythe University with a family in come of $65,000 or less will receive an all-expense paid education. This new plan was announced just weeks ago. Jeff Neal, the Univer sity's Director of Communica tions, confirmed to the Florida Sentinel that the change goes into effect this fall, which means students whose families meet the low income tier, will not be ex pected to pay anything towards their education at Harvard. The university released a statement saying, "When only ten percent of the students in elite higher education come from families in the lower half of the income distribution, we are not doing enough in bringN ing elite higher education to the lower half of the income distribution." Harvard began offering in come-based full scholarships nearly 10 years ago and over the years, has worked to at tract students who otherwise could not afford the more than $5o,ooo a year in tu ition. Harvard does not have a minimum requirement for ad mission. However, Neal says, "The majority of students ad mitted to the College represent a range of [SAT] scores from roughly 6oo to Boo on each section of the Reasoning Test and the Subject Tests."

Local Ra-dio .. Show Addresses The Needs 01 Ex-Felons Joanna "Flava" Williams has been an advo cate for ex-felons for years. She has met with officials in Tallahassee, Tampa and even Washington, D.C. about the injustices ex-felons have had to endure. When you get out of prison and you try to get a job to take care of yourself and your family, you are usually told there are no openings, or to fill out an application, and be contacted later. "All of that is a polite way of saying we don't hire ex felons." Flava said even more frustrating is the inability for homeless people and ex felons to earn a living on the streets ''You can't sell water, and the panhandling ordinance has basically wiped out any chance of homeless people trying to take care of themselves. I am the host of a radio show called "Poli-tricks," and JOANNA "FLAVA" WILLIAMS it broadcasts daily from 12 p. m. until 1 p. m. online at www.kepxradio.com. Flava said she's spoken with Mayor Bob Buckhorn about finding a way to help people earn a living. "I'm sure the Mayor is interested in seeing the crime rate drop," said Flava. "Give the people some thing they can do to earn a living, and the crime rate will go down dramatically. But when you put people in des perate situations, you can ex pect there will be problems." Flava said we all need to stop complaining and start changing. "It's on us to help us. We are responsible for ourselves and each other, and the sooner we realize it, the bet ter. "All ex-felons and home less people must understand that they are being pushed aside or just moved out of the way so outsiders won't see just how bad it is. We have to step up and be heard. We have to stop being afraid." Reporter Leon B. Crews can be reached at (813) 248-0724, or e at lcrews@jlsentinel.com.

CREWS Sentinel Staff Writer In this era of free speech and turmoil, there's no better venue to express yourself than Black On Black Rhyme Tampa. Tampa's spoken word leader, LIFE, said Black On Black Rhyme has afforded him an opportunity to express himself in ways that may be offensive to others. "Here, we say what's in our hearts, and sometimes the truth can be ugly and painful. "Nationally, Black On Black Rhyme has provided an outlet for people like myself who see all of the injustices going on, and want a platform to talk about it." Over the years, Black On Black Rhyme Tampa has relo cated several times. Now, they are at Supa D's, 810 Skagway Avenue, and at Club Atlanta, where they offer a free raffle every month. "We are in tough political times right now, and it's time for the people to be heard," said LIFE. "We have to understand that we don't have to just sit back and take it without any response. Black On Black Rhyme gives you that oppor QJ.hity to make a response in a non-violent way. In other words, you can get your point UFE across." LIFE said more and more young people are being drawn to spoken word poetry, and r he'd like to see it expand even more. With the summer coming up, a lot of young people will be out wandering around.

I had to get used to it," he said Stephaun admits the first year was a period of adjust ment for him. In addition to adapting to a school that was in a class by itself, he also had to adjust to 11-hour school days. He also said that if a student didn't have Study Hall, then he could leave at 5 p.m., but Study Hall required an additional hour on campus. "It was a very long day, and sometimes when there STEPHAUN JACKSON Graduate of Academy Prep of Tampa were field trips, we had to go to school on Saturdays," he said. And, of course, there was a continuing battle with Stephaun facing his hard est subject mathematics But, he never gave up. And, duri ng his sth grade year, the final year at Academy Prep, he made the honor roll every grading period and of that he is especially proud. Now the young man looks forward to attending high school where he will con centrate on music. His goal is to become a gospel singer.

The former super star defensive tackle is shift ing gears and now putting his thoughts in an upcoming book, Sapp Attack, which is already making headlines for its comments directed at for mer teammates, coaches and employers. Since he retired, fans have come to expect nothing less from Sapp. And here he comes again. Sapp, the most colorful, most discussed athlete in Tampa Bay history, is on another one of those brutal, relentless rushes again. One more time, he is loud, and he is profane, and he is stepping on a different set of toes every time you turn a page. You may like it, you may hate it, and you may stay up late laughing about it. In other words, yeah, it's full of Sapp. For 314 pages the former WARRENSAPP defensive tackle rambles through his career in the same familiar bluntness of his better news conferences. To sum up, he loved Tony Dungy, he liked Jon Gruden and he hated Sam Wyche. He admired Derrick Brooks, he didn't care for Keyshawn Johnson and he thought Monte Kiftin was an over rated self-promoter.

Venus Williams lo.ses In 2nd Round 01 'French Open VENUS WILLIAMS PARIS Venus Williams followed little sister S erena out of the French Open. The elder Williams, a seven-time Grand Slam champion, lost to third-seed ed Agnieszka Radwanska of Poland 6 2, 6 3 Wednesday in the second round. Williams was playing at a major tournament for the first time since last August, SERENA WILLIAMS when she withdrew before her second-round match at the U .S. Open. It was then that she revealed she had been diagnosed with Sjogren s syndrome, a condition that can cause fatigue and joint pain. On Tuesday, Serena Williams lost in the first round of a major tournament for the first time, falling to Virginie Razzano of France 4-6, 7-6 (5) 6-3. Manager savs Boxer Williams Paralvzed In Ga. crash PAUL WILLIAMS ATLANTA Boxer Paul Williams was paralyzed Sunday after being involved in a motorcycle crash in the Atlanta suburbs and doctors said it is unlikely he will con tinue his career, his manager said Monday. From the waist down, he has absolutely no movement. He s in very good spirits, though," George Peterson said from his home in Aiken, S.C. "He still believes he's going to fight again." Williams, 30, severed his spinal cord after falling on his back and head when he was thrown from his motorcycle Sunday morning in Marietta, Ga., Peterson said. Williams has been listed in serious but stable condition on Monday at an undisclosed hospital, Peterson said. The crash happened Sunday morning in Marietta after Williams tried to avoid another car in the next lane that was negotiating a curve and then had to maneuver to avoid an oncoming car. Williams was in the area to attend his brother's w.edding Sunday afternoon Peterson said. I know he s going to make a statement after surgery, because he's that kind of per son," Peterson said. "He' s 100 percent coherent and still has the will to want to get back on the motorcycle." Williams was scheduled to fight Saul "Canelo" Alvarez on Sept. 15 in Las Vegas, but that event has been canceled, Peterson said. Williams won his first major welterweight title in July 2007 with a decision over Antonio Margarito. He struggled to land fights with the sport' s biggest stars because of his pronounced size advantages, a high vol ume punching rate and his relative anonymity, but was considered one of the world's top pound-for-pound stars. He earned victories over Carlos Quintana, Winky Wright, Sergio Martinez and Kermit Cintron, but Martinez abruptly stopped Williams' rise in November 2010 with a second-round victory in their rematch. Williams ended up face down on the canvas with his eyes wide open in perhaps the most spectacular knockout in recent boxing history Terrell Owens Will sue Over Indoor Football League Firing Terrell Owens is not tak ing his firing from the Allen Wranglers lightly W e dnesday the wide receiv er was dropped from the team due to his bad performance, and absence at a charity event, but according to reports, he plans to take legal action against the team. Sources close to the former NFL player said that the dis cre:Rancy over Owens' failure to appear with his teammates at a children's hospital is unfounded because the event was not mandatory. Mr. Owens' legal team is addressing the details of the Wranglers release statement ," said his rep in a statement. The rep also noted that the 38-year-old played all games according to his contractual agreement and was proud to be part of the IFL and the Allen Wranglers, and wishes the team all the best moving forward."

FLORIDA SENTINEL FRIDAY. JUNE 1 2012 B It took more than 10 years for Mrs. Normita Jeffery to release a new CD. However, her audience was waiting patiently because the CD is climbing the charts. "I've been pleased with the response, which shows me that we really miss smooth jazz in this area. I'm still celebrating because the CD is making major noise in the United Kingdom. It is currently #6 on the Top 30 Soul Charts," Mrs. Jeffery said. She created the jazz band known as Lady Fingers more than 20 years ago. She credits corporate America with giv ing her the courage to do it. A Tampa native, Mrs. Mrs. Jeffery says, "I' m the fingers, she's the flavor." Adding to the mix are Basil Powell, lead guitarist, wbo has been with Mrs. Jeffery for several years, and drum mer James Norman rounds out the quartet. The CD features 10 new songs, eight of which Mrs. Jeffery wrote. She said it also contains two cover songs, "People Make The World Go Round and "You Know How To Love Me." She worked with local Producer Chris Spencer, who provided a fresh approach to the music. Local artist Allen Sams is credit with mixing, mastering, and engineering. Jeffery said she began taking piano lessons at the age of seven. After graduating from Middleton High School she enrolled at Florida A & M University. She graduated with a B. S. Degree in Music Education, with an emphasis on Piano Performance. NJ Lady Fingers is climbing the chart with its new release, "This Is What It Is." Mrs. Jeffery is married to Timothy Jeffery and is the mother of two daughters. She wrote one of the songs about her only grandchild, entitled "JaylaBaby." Then she decided the time had come to move in a different direction and she entered the corporate world. "Corporate America caused me to step out on faith and do my music." She began by picking up jobs on the weekends. She decided on the name Lady Fingers because she plays the piano, and she is a lady. Then, she met another lady, talented vocalist Sonja Wise. Although the number of members in the band have risen and fallen, she and Ms. Wise have been constant, performing together for more than 20 years. Of the duo, Mrs. Jeffery said she cares for her mother, Mrs. Bessie Rodriguez, and enjoys writing music. Holds co Release Panv The Fox Jazz Cafe was the location where members of Lady Fingers Jazz Quartet decided to host the release of their new CD on May 16th.

Healthcare Professional savs Passion 'Is A Call On Mv lite' Q a: LL. BYTAMECA JOHNSON Freelance Writer The name Estrellita is Spanish for "little star." That may explain why Estrellita Berry has remained a bright fixture throughout East and West Tampa for more than two decades, changing the men tal, physical and emotional health of men, women and children along the way. She's known around town as "Lo" Berry and got her name Estrellita from the Hispanic midwife who helped deliver her in Ybor City. For 25 years, she has worked as a passionate advocate insuring healthcare for the underserved "This is a call on my life," Berry admits. "I' d been in the mental health field for years, working with severely emotional, physically and sexually abused children. I got tired of seeing so many abused kids at what appeared to be a point of no return." Berry thought if she could change the course of a parent's life, she would inevitably make a difference in a child's life. She is President of REACH UP, Incorporated; a nonprofit agency that helps communi ties gain equality in health care. REACHUP's primary focus is residents in zip codes 33602, 33603, 33605 and3361o. One of the federally funded services she oversees is the Central Hillsborough County Healthy Start Project. "Babies born too small, too soon is the num ber one cause of infant mor tality," she explains. "I think the biggest change we've seen is a reduction in preterm births in African American women who are participants in our proLOBERRY gram." One of her proudest moments was the communi ty's rally of support for her efforts to push for the passing of House Bill 1259. Support from State Senator Arthenia Joyner and Sta te Representative Betty Reed lead then-Governor Charlie Christ to approve a onetime one million dollar allocation of funds to inves tigate a statewide increase in infant mortality in 2005. Berry says research con firmed Black mothers across the state were dealing with numerous chronic illnesses long before getting pregnant and giving birth. Those findings led Berry and her staff to redirect their focus to preconception and pre vention health care. Today, Berry spends countless hours seeking additional funding to con tinue to improve the social and economic development of underserved communi ties. She is a strong advo cate of health care reform and is committed to ensuring people clearly understand its benefits. She is also working to get people to better understand the importance of male involve ment in terms of health and preconception care. "It's statistically proven that the birth weight of a baby is better when the father is involved from the onset. When men are involved there are a lot o f positive outcomes. Academic performance is better; children are less like ly to go to prison. Berry hopes to retire in five years, but before that happens, she'd like to increase her staff from 27 to 100, with the majority of those new hires consisting of residents in underserved communities. Berry is a 1973 graduate of King High School and earned degrees in Clinical Psychology, Education, Mental Health and Community Counseling. She and husband Dr. George E. Berry are members of New Mount Zion Missionary Baptist Church and are the parents of one son, 31-year-old Aaron L. Berry.

Ms. Freriks is the Lead Teacher for the Magnet Program First Tech Challenge Team. The Masquerade Team won the State Championship in February, which qualified them for the World Championship in April. During the 3 final matches, the Masquerades won 2 of the 3 matches. Masquerade was the best in a field of 128 teams from the United States, China, Romania, the Netherlands, Canada, Mexico, South Korea, Australia and Saudi Arabia. There are 2,100 First Tech Challenge teams in the world. However, only 128 qualified to compete in the world games. The 12-member team is made up of freshmen and sophomores set a world record of 869 points. The previous world record was 591 points. Middleton has 3 First Tech Challenge teams and all 3 qualified to compete at the Florida State Championships in February. It was held at Embry Riddle Aeronautical University. Mrs. Buchanan said tha t the Sanwa Growers, Inc. ar e business partners with the school. She cultivated the partnership three years ago. She also stated that she con siders herself very fortunate that the Leungs have taken a leadership role in the com munity and the school. They have been very generously of their time and money for our students needs several times, including the donation of net book laptop computers and 200 Scientific and graphic calculators for the mathematics department." Mrs. Buchanan requested any business that would like to become a business partner with the school to contact her at (813) 233-3360, or email rosemary.bucbanan@sdhc.kl

local leader oners To Officials Serious AboutMinoritv Meiliate With occupv Tampa Participation On Projects Group And Business Owners Since the Occupy Tampa political group took up resi dence in Freedom Park in West Tampa, their presence has been met with a mix of op timism and disgust. Several business owners in West Tampa are not happy with the presence of the group in that area and think they are ope r a ting a homeless camp. On e businessman George Smith, has been adamant that he feels the group is serving more as a detriment to the community than an aid. Anyone coming into this area considering opening a new business has to be dis mayed by what they see," said Smith. I just don t see how their pres e nce is helping our plans to revitalize this area, and at tract new businesses. Rev. Dr. Charles McKenzie, State of Florida Coordinator for the Rainbow PUSH Coalition said he thinks the group is an impor tant political voice, and he un derstands their purpose. I think what's missing REV. CHARLES MCKENZIE with them is their lack of or ganization. They don t have a set plan in place, and they lack direction. I think the business own ers in West Tampa need to talk to the group, and express their concerns. I would love to facil itate an effort to unite the two groups. Rev. McKenzie said he s happy the residents of West Tampa are interacting with the Occupy Tampa group. Reporter Leon B. Crews can be reached at 9813) 248-0724, or emailed at lcrews@/Isen tinel.com. BY LEON B. CREWS Sentinel Staff Writer Brenda Eighmey, Small Minority Business De velopment Administrator for Hillsborough County, said County Administrator, Mike Merrill, is very concerned about minority participation on all county projects. Eighmey said Merrill wants assurances that there will be no discrepancies when it comes to dealing with primary contractors. "We understand that most primary contractors use the same sub-contractors on all of their projects. When a contractor bids on a county project a part of that process is the completion of a Good Faith questionnaire that de tails their compliance with minority participation. "We're not dictating to contractors on who to use as sub-contractors on their projects, but if they want to do business with Hillsbor ough County, they must meet the minority criteria." Eighmey said every BRENDA EIGHMEY project bas a goal that has to be met with minority partici pation. After that, there are other components involved. We try to set realistic goals for particular projects, said Eighmey. "Mike Merrill gets a lot of input from his advisory committee on minority con tracting. Advisory Committee Board member, Michael Hadley, said he believes the county is making great strides in making sure small businesses get a chance to do business with the county. "I've spoken personally to MICHAEL HADLEY Mike Merrill, and he s aware of the county's past track record when it comes to dealing with minorities. He s put a system in place that will make sure that doesn t happen again. It' s not as easy as it was in the past to .,.. get contracts from the 5 county, because not all bid:!! ders use minorities on their g projects." 0 Hadley and Eighmey both said the area that the ::::! focus is on right now is con struction projects.

Pastor Gee Thompson welcomes new congregation members to partner with the church by collectively and fervently Living in Integrity Faith and Excellency. Pastor Gee grew up wor shipping in the Allen Temple African Methodist Episcopal Church and the Beulah Bap tist Church, both in Besse mer, Alabama. He accepted his calling to preach and was trained under Rev. Dr. Christopher Chappell at Grace Commu nity Christian Church in Ken nesaw, Georgia.

Pastor Gee informed the pastor that he indeed wanted the pews. In April2011, while watching television with his family, that he noticed a painting on the wall of the tel evised show that displa y ed the word LIFE in bold letters. "With DVR technology I pressed rewind on the remote control and subsequently pressed pause," says Pastor Gee. And there it was, under the word LIFE was an ex tended hand. The Holy Spirit immediately instructed me to place the Holy Bible on the hand. And it became so, the logo for the church. "For with God, nothing shall be impossible," recounts Pastor Gee. "In January 2012, in obedience and faith, I secured a building and com menced with purchasing equipment. Pastor Gee can be emailed at office @ glcctawa.com, or called at (813) 956-L.I.F.E (5433)

"What we do most of all is the concealed carrying license. We supply everything the cus tomer needs.

CREWS Sentinel StaffWriter When Tarvi Smith graduated from King High School, he had his heart set on a career as a physical ther apist. What Smith discovered, however, was that he needed a job while he was attending school and little did he know that job would turn out to be his future career. Smith worked for companies that did cable and satellite installations, and also at Circuit City. During those years, he picked up ideas from that experience and decided that's what he wanted to do for a living. Smith created Wire Tek, TARVISMITH and with 10 years of experi ence, he's mastered all of the techniques. "I install cable, hang flat screen televisions, media centers, speakers, security cameras and digital antennas. "Right now, I'm trying to grow and increase my store front. I have three guys working with me, and we're all experienced and reliable. Smith said he plans to expand into wireless alarm systems. He also said he does a lot of reading to keep up with the changing technology. "Because everything keeps changing so quickly you constantly find yourself upgrading systems. I do a lot of reading. "I know I'm heading in the right direction, but I'm not there yet." Wire Tek is located at 908 East 23rd Avenue Communitv Caregiver Continues ToFeedThoselnNeed Cornelius "Big Bru" Hamilton has been feeding the homeless for years. He selected the site of the Salva tion Army on Florida Avenue and Henderson Street as his base. Big Bru had recently come under scrutiny by offi cials at the Salvation Army for feeding the residents of thejr facility. Food Distribution Center at The Walk Church, 8619 North 40th Street, will be giving away boxes of food from 12 p. m. until 2 p.m. on a first come, first served basis. There is no pre-registration or sign-up required to get a box of groceries. All you have to do is show up. "We sat down, and now everything is fine. Not only did we work things out, but now I w1U be inside of one of their buildings feeding the homeless. It' s like we 'v e formed a silent partnership." CORNELIUS HAMILTON "BigBru" Big Bru said he's also going back into his musical production roots, and will be releasing a Gospel CD in the near future. He's also auditioning area artists to be a part of the project. food runs out to whomever comes. Big Bru said every Sun day beginning at 5 p. m. and ending at 6 p. m., he will be handing out dinners until the "We make no distinctions on who to feed. It doesn' t matter if you're homeless or not. If you're hungry, come and get something to eat." Reporter Leon B. Crews can be reached at (813) 248-0724, or emailed at lcrews@flsentinel.com. Big Bru also said the Candlelight Vigil To .. Honor Murdered Siblings On June 5 2011, Judy Brito felt comfort able leaving her children, Kiara and Jeremi, at home alone while she went out with some friends. However, what happened that night made her wish she had either taken them with her, or stayed at home. In what Tampa Police called a home inva sion, Kiara and Jeremi were shot inside their South Tampa home. Kiara was killed instantly, and Jeremi died the next day. Charles Waits and Tavari Grant were arrested and charged with the murders. Before Judy Brito had time to mourn the deaths of her children she found herself on the defense from allegations she was somewhat re sponsible for their murders. In her efforts to es tablish a non-profit in their names, she has also met opposition. "But, that won t stop me. I miss my children so much, and I think about them all the time. I want theqt to be remembered forever, and that's the reason I'm trying to set up this foundation." On June sth, Ms. Brito will be hosting a candlelight vigil at 6:30 p. m. in honor of her children. The vigil will be held on Van Buren KI.ARA AND JEREMI BRITO Drive; that's where the family lived before the murders. "I've also gotten Chilli 's Restaurant to host an event for them from 11 a. m. untl.l11 p. m. on June sth and 6th. Ms. Brito said she considered many times leaving Tampa, because there are too many memories here. But, she changed her mind and said she will stay until her children have gotten justice.

However, even herbal teas and white teas have the potential to erode enamel and cause tooth staining. Sauces Deeply-colored sauces like soy sauce, tomato sauce and curry sauce have significant tooth staining potential. Sports Drinks Acidic foods and drinks can lead to tooth discoloration. Highly acidic drinks like sports or energy drinks can erode tooth enamel, setting the stage for staining. Wine Red wine, an acidic drink with intensely pigmented molecules called tannins and chromogens, is notorious for tooth discol oration White wine is even more acidic and can lead to stains, too Berries Intensely pig mented molecules stick to dental enamel. That's why berries and other vibrantly colored fruits can stain teeth. Juices and pies made from those fruits can also cause stains. Soda, Cola and Other Carbonated Drinks The acid and chromogens in these drinks can lead to seri ous staining of your teeth. Even light -c olored sodas contain enough acid that they can encourage staining by other foods and drinks. Candy And Other Sweets -If your favorite sweet like hard candy, chewing gum, or popsicles makes your tongue change colors, it may contain teeth staining coloring agents. Natural Ingredients For Natural Beautv Here are five ingredients that experts love for their beauty-boosting properties: Papain. This enzyme, found in papay as and pineapples, gently eats off dead skin cells decongesting clogged pores and helping with skin texture and cell turnover. You can blend up a fresh papaya and use it as a mask, or crush some papaya enzyme tablets in to your moisturizer to make a hy drating, gently exfoliating mask. Olive Oil. Olive oil is a great cleanser and moistur izer; it's an amazing makeup remover, and you can get it all off afterwards with a little face wash. Putting a drop on any dry body skin you might have or acne scabs will also soften them up. Green Tea. This anti inflammatory calms skin and also has tons of antioxi dants. Washing your face with chilled green tea is a great way to get rid of redness, and to calm down irritated skin, just put matcha (powdered green tea) in your favorite face mask. Allantoin. Don t let the fancy name fool you. This stuff is just comfrey extract. What makes it so great for your skin is that it's a kera tolytic and assists in desqua mation. In layman's terms, it helps skin slough off (the desquamation part) and softens the keratin in skin, too, which helps it retain moisture and look smoother. You can raid your spice drawer and make a comfrey and honey mask, or buy al lantoin cream to try it in its purest form. Caffeine. Have prob lems with redness or dark circles under your eyes? Caf feine is a vasoconstrictor, meaning it shrinks veins, re ducing the appearance of redness and blue from poorly oxygenated blood. It's not permanent, but it does offer a great quick fix. 5 Diseases Doctors Misdiagnose In Blacks Here, some of the diseases most often missed: t. Lupus. Lupus is 2-3 times more common among African Americans, Hispan ics, Native Americans and Asians -a disparity that re mains unexplained. Lupus is three times more common in Black women than in white women. This autoimmune disease, found mainly in women, can cause common symptoms such as fatigue, achy or swollen joints and fevers. 2. Sarcoidosis. Doctors have misdiagnosed this dis ease as asthma, bronchitis, tuberculosis, and COPD and other diseases because there is not a lot known about it. In the United States, sar coidosis frequently occurs more often and more se verely among African Amer icans than among Caucasians. Most studies suggest a higher disease rate for women. 3 COPD. COPD which covers chronic bronchitis and emphysema, is the fourth highest cause of death in the United States. COPD is often misdiag nosed and undertreated as asthma. Studies show that African American adults with COPD, asthma, or coex isting asthma and COPD use fewer medical services and account for lower medical costs than Caucasians because of non-diagnosis. 4 Hepatitis C. It's the leading cause of liver transplants and the most common cause of liver-related deaths in this country, but as many as 70 percent of those in fected are unaware they carry the virus. African-Americans face a "triple whammy" when it comes to the hepatitis C virus. Two aspects of this triple threat are well known: the high prevalence of the virus in the African-American community and the lower re sponse to therapy of infected individuals. But there's a third threat: African-Americans don't spontaneously clear the virus as often as other racial and ethnic groups. 5 Hypothyroidism. About half of the nearly 27 million people with an un deractive thyroid are undiag nosed. Symptoms such as fatigue, weight gain, hair loss and poor memory are often dis missed as normal signs of aging. According to new re search, African Americans are diagnosed with thyroid cancer at a significantly lower rate than white Amer icans. According to the study au thors, more aggressive detection efforts in African Americans could uncover more incidence of thyroid cancer, to the extent that the African American and white populations may be experi encing similar rates of in crease

In most cases, your inter est only mortgage coupon will even l ay out pre-calcu lated options for payments Prosecutor Mav Be Fired After Ordering Secret Jail Recordings A veteran prosecutor in Alameda County, Calif., has been put on administrative leave while a potential violation of attorney-client privi lege is probed, as first reported in the Oakland Tribune. It was revealed in a court hearing that Danielle Lon d on, who has been with the office a decade, had ordered sheriffs deputies to secretly record a jailhouse conversa tion between a murder de fendant and a defense expert, the Oakland Tribune reports. "It is a felony to record the conversation between an in mate and her attorney or oth ers who are presumed to maintain confidentiality on the inmate's behalf," accord ing to California Public De fender Diane Bellas. Attorney J o Ann Kingston represents the murder defendant and is calling for a probe of the sheriff's department as well as Lon-don. "It's so blatantly illegal it's beyond pale," said Kingston, who at the same time stated that she thought London must wrong l y have believed that she could legally record the conversa tion. "I feel strongly that there should be an independent investigation done." Sadly, this story does not surprise me one bit. I have previously written about jail and prison inmates needing to be very careful when talk ing on the phone due to the fact that everything is recorded by the jail and all recordings are routinely monitored by prosecutors (see my prior Florida Sen tinel article entitled, "A Crim inal Defendant, the Government and a Tele phone").

:!! ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------0 George Zimmerman Wants Damaging Evidence Sealed In Travvon Marlin case George Zimmerman is following the lead of prosecutors in his pending case for the murder of Trayo1.1 Martin, by requesting that certain evidence in his trial be kept under wraps. Zimmerman's lawyer, Mark O'Mara, filed a motion requesting that his client's text messages, emails and journal entries not be released to the public, until they can be reviewed by both sides. According to O'Mara release of the evidence will adversely affect the proper GEORGE ZIMMERMAN administration of justice in this case, and may make it impossible to find an appropriate jury unaffected by this information Florida cannibal Identified RUDY EUGENE M I AMI -T h e cannibal w ho w as di scovere d eating a a m a n s face on the sid e of a F lo r ida highway, and had to b e shot at least six times b e fore he stopped has been identified by the MiamiDade County Medical Examiner's Office as Rudy Eugene, 31. His gruesome attack on the homeless man is the fourth recent, vicious attack in that area blamed on drugs, according to Miami Dade County police. As previously reported, Eugene had to be shot to death by police after he was found eating another man's face. Even as he was hit by the repeated shots, he kept gnawing at his victim's face, whom sources say is now barel y recognizable. According to the reports, Eugene was arrested on a battery charge when he was 16-years-old, and was arrested at least seven other times for charges including marijuana and trespassing. His ex-wife said that his behavior was erratic and increasingly violent. "I wouldn't say he had mental problems, but he always felt like people was against him," she said. The woman filed for divorce in 2007 after a little over a year of marriage She said that there were times she feared for her life. He was literally eating his face, from the top of his forehead to his jaw is gone. He wasn t only gnawing at it, he was swallowing bits of his face ," said Armando Aguilar, who heads the local chapter of the Fraternal Order of Police. "This is about the fourth incident I hear already with in our Miami Dade County area where these individuals have taken off their clothes and gone totally insane as a result of the drugs they're taking," he continues.

Three African-American chemistry stu dents graduated on May 11 with doctorates, setting a school record. The trio who re ceived their degrees was Kari Copeland, Margo Montgomery and Jeffrey Veals. A fourth African-American student, Shanna Stoddard, will earn her doctorate in chem istry this coming De cember. Professors at UM beamed with pride with this latest achievement for the university. "On average, about so African-American students receive Ph.D.s in chemistry nation wide each year, so UM produced 6% of the na tional total," said Maurice Eftink, as sociate provost and professor of Chemistry and Biochemistry. This isn't the first time UM has done well in the STEM arena. In 2006, the school had four African-American Ph.D.s in Mathematics. "That was an even more outstanding achievement given that there are only 15 to 30 African -American Ph.D.s in Math granted each year, but the cur rent achievement is still pretty noteworthy," Eftink said. After graduating from Tampa Bay Technical High School in 2007, Ms. Angel Neal enrolled at Florida A & M University. Meanwhile, her older sister, Ms. Tumekia Burch, decided to return to school as well. Recently, the Neal Fam ily attended graduation cer emonies as both women earned college degrees.

In doing so, Ms. Neal is combining her love of fashion and shopping into a career. The 22-year-old Tampa native will move to New York and pursue employ-TUMEKIA BURCH ment in her chosen field.

Ms. Burch is a full time student and her mother said she always had an interest in the medical field. "She wants to be a Counselor for mental Health and she needs a Master's Degree, ANGELNEAL Mrs. Neal said of her older daughter.

The 0 22-year-old is simply a ...J u. young lady with a fierce determination to be the very best and the product of a supportive single mother determined to do right by her. I never really had a vi sion for her life," explains Yolanda Simmons, the mother of Micha'le {pro nounced Me-sheil-a). I was just trying to take care of her and keep her fed and clothed and busy. Yolanda raised Micha'le alone after she got divorced when her daughter was just a toddler. It was a tough de cision that came with a cost. "I got child support, but money was tight. Job chal lenges made matters worse. o Yolanda has been laid off I N N w (!) more times than she can count. Yet, she was committed to giving her daughter the very best. "Even though TARIQ SHARRIEFF survival rate. But now I was thinking I would have to grow up without him, that my role moder would be stripped away. The chemo took a toll on the entire family, especially Tariq's dad. "After going through what I went through says Tarik Sharrieff, I now understand why some people would choose death over that." By spring 2009, the Sharrieff family was back on track. Little did they know more curves lie in the road ahead. Later that year, Tariq's mom Lori, a Human Re sources Director, began hav ing unexplained seizures. An MICHA'LE SIMMONS I wasn't married, I wanted her to have a good founda tion. I knew I had to keep her busy, because 'an idle mind is the devil's work shop.'" Yolanda enrolled Micha'le in the best public schools in Jacksonville, where tbey lived at the time. She also made sure she had dance classes and partici pated in various other activ ities. She only required two things in return "I kept two lists on the back of her bath room door." One was her lists of chores; the other was a list of consequences for the grades she made. If Micha'le got an A, she got The Family: TARIK, LORI, TALIAAND TARIQ SHARRI EFF (Photo by Donald Stokely, Jr.) examination determined she had a tumor in her brain the size of a key lime.

Tariq says sometimes he thought he d crumble under the pressure, but his faith in God became stronger after his dad s ordeal.

Yolanda says, "a D or below got her an a** whip ping. And I meant that! Micha'le laughs at that memory, but quickly points out, It never came down to that because I always got good grades! Good grades and self drive endeared Micha'le to many family, friends, teach ers and counselors who fiercely supported and helped her along the way. Even her first grade teacher, Mrs. Jean Gilmore, has been a constant presence in her life. It was Mrs. Gilmore who helped Micha'le land an all expense paid scholar ship to Jacksonville's Epis copal High School, one of the most prestigious and ex pensive private schools in the state. That experience, com bined with excellent grades numerous community serv ice hours and great recom mendations earned Micha'le a full $2oo,ooo scholarship to Yale. Her four year college experience includes time spent study ing in the South African country of Swaziland, classes taken at Appalachian dozens of community service hours. He even started his own record production company and recently produced his first single by an artist named Dayo entitled "Brand.New." The video has gotten over 200 thousand hits on YouTube. Tariq's hard work earned him a couple of scholarships from the City of Tampa and the Tampa Organization of Black Affairs (TOBA). That money will help sustain him when he enrolls at More house College in Atlanta in August majoring in Mass Communications. I'm so excited for him," his mom Lori exclaims "He needs to do this, for him and for us." Tariq has learned a lot during his family s chal lenges. When he reflects on the past, he says he realizes, When we go through things we think we re the only ones going through.

She plans to spend time with her mom at their home in St. Petersburg before leaving for the Uni versity of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where she will work to earn her Master's Degree in Health Care Man agement and Policy. "This girl has been talking about college since first grade!" recalls Yolanda. I was like, 'can we please just make it through dinner?'" Both Yolanda and Micha'le can now exhale and enjoy the outcome of all the sacrifices made. "I really didn't know what I was doing, Yolanda admits. "I was just winging it. I wasn't try ing to raise a doctor who could take care of me or save the world. Truthfully, I was just trying to get her out of high school without being pregnant or on drugs.'' Micha'le is eternally grateful. "My mother was strict. She kept me busy in a lot of activities, but the bottom line is she made a lot of smart decisions."

2012 Graduates :::D c Graduating Senior Sees Opportunitv Instead 11 Failure 2 z JULIUS GRIFFIN ... Hillsborough High School Graduate Julius Griffin grew up in Sulphur Springs, a place he describes it as "the epit ome of a concrete jungle. Now that he is graduating from high school, he has plans to take every opportu nity to defy the odds and change his future. Julius is a graduating senior of Hillsborough High School. He has a 3-37 grade point average and More house College has accepted his application. However, it remains to be seen if he will attend there because of finances. "I have applied for more than 150 scholarships and so far, I've only gotten one or two. I won't be able to attend Morehouse if I can't attend Morehouse, then I will at tend St. Leo's in Dade City," he said. In many ways, Julius is a typical teenager, anxious about his future. But, in other ways, he differs greatly. "I've basically been taking care of myself. When you have parents, you've been blessed, when you have your health and strength, you've been really blessed. People don't understand that," he said. Julius said his grand mother raised him for the first few years of his until her health failed. Then, it was off to a foster home, where he remained for about a year until an aunt took him in at the age of 15. But, his experiences have not made him bitter, they have only made him deter mined. "So meone either becomes the product of the en vironment or either uses it as motivation, motivation to excel inside and outside the classroom so one can leave this negative environment. "This environment is made even less desirable when someone is a minority, homosexual, and an aban doned child. Everyone is counting on you to fail and the cards are stacked against you. When everyone saw hopelessness, I saw opportu nity. I knew education was the only way I was going to escape the black cloud that seemed to be looming over me. I pushed myself and dedicated all my time to school," he wrote in response to the Sentinel questionnaire about future or career choices. Julius views his accept ance to Morehouse as an op portunity that is the fruit of his labor. "An opportunity was given to me to climb out of the hole that the rest of my family has fallen in. I am the first in my family who will be going to college. I am the rose that has blossomed out of the concrete," he said. The 18-year-old also feels the pressure is on him to suc ceed. He said his two older brothers dropped out of school. However, he has two sisters ages 4 and 6 He plans to serve as a role model for them. He also wants to extend that same compassion to others. Overcoming adver sities has made me a keen, influential, assiduous ac tivist. Any help I receive in achieving my dreams in return I will give back to my community." The young man has many plans for the future. His goal is to become a Behavioral Psychologist, and then a Cosmetic Surgeon. He feels that with this background it will help him understand what goes on in a person's mind. He feels that those who are not happy with their physical appearance may have some deep-rooted problems. Julius describes himself as one who has a new vision of life. He began attending church in January 2012. "I love it. I'm a full time church goer. I go to church on Wednesday, Friday, Satur day and twice on Sunday Although he is not sure how he will attend college if he doesn't get enough finan cial aid, but he is confident that he is going to be a suc cess story. "For once, I would like for someone to not just acknowledge my persever ance, but reward it. One day m someone will say, The Grif...... "I have made a total trans formation; everything I was doing wrong has turned around. I love it, I fell in love with church," the member of Solid Rock Church Of Jesus said. fin Foundation has made N an impact on today's society," the young man said. N City Editor Iris B.
