"It seems their philosophy is to either kill them, or send them to prison for a long time." Yvette Briggs, who lives in California, said when she first stepped into the court room during the trial, she never thought they had been accused of doing so many hor rible things. "The testimony of the offi cers wasn't clear, because they were testifying about state ments that weren't in their re ports. Another officer didn't even know who was who. He identified Milton as being Jeremiah. "They were not gang mem bers, so RICO should have never been applied in this case. Yvette Briggs pointed out that the sentence they re ceived was ridiculous, espe cially the fact that as a provision of their probation, can t have contact with each other. "Two of them are brothers, and the others are cousins. How can you ask them to not be in contact with each other when two of them have the same mother? They also expect them to pay for their own prosecution." Both ladies said they will file a complaint against the statewide prosecutor in the case and ethics complaints against the officers. "None of them have ever shot anyone or hurt anyone but they are treated like ani mals that needed to be re moved from society," said Yvette Briggs. I think they were all guilty before the trial even started. "They had their bonds set at $1 million. Zimmerman's (George Zimmerman who shot and killed Trayvon Martin) bond wasn't that high, and he killed someone. So, I guess you can kill some one and get out on bond, but if you're accused of RICO, the bond is set so high you can't bond out." Both ladies said there are hundreds of young men who call themselves the "Cross Fletcher Hot Boys," and they don't know how their sons were singled out. Reporter Leon B.

., Features :!! ODicers Cleared In Teen's Shooting Death: Mom Outraged )> c: In a letter from State Attor ney Mark Ober's office, Tampa Police officers Shannon Murphy and Gregory Pryor have been cleared in the July 22, 2012 shooting death of 16year-old Javon Neal. was gunned down by the officers as they pursued him inside the Central Court Apartments on Central Avenue and Columbus Drive. Of ficers said Neal was armed with a shotgun, and had turned toward them in a threatening manner when they fire on In the letter from Ober's office, he said his office has completed the investigation into the shooting, and based upon his review of the facts, reports, interviews, and the applicable law, the use of deadly force by the officers was justified. Javon Neal's mother, Kethessa Fordoms, said she was outraged when she got the JAVONNEAL ..... his shooting death by police was ruled justified. news, and as far as she's con cerned, they murdered her son. "There is no way this is jus tifiable. It was a case of mis taken identity. The photo they released doesn't show Javon doing anything wrong. You re ally can't tell who is really on that photo, and we haven't seen the entire video to know what really happened." Ms. Fordoms said noth ing makes sense to her, and it's Anornev Denied Evidence ln. lavon Neal Shooting The attorney representing the family of Javon Neal, Harold Tripp Sebring, said he has been denied any evi dence in Neal's shooting by two Tampa Police officers. Sebring said he'd be sur prised if the video camera didn't capture what really hap pened. "Right now, I smell a rat, because the blurred photo released to the media doesn't prove anything. We've asked to see the video, and we were told the investigation is still ongo ing, although the officers have been cleared in the shooting. "If we have to file a lawsuit against the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, the Tampa Police Department, and the State Attorney s Office to get the evidence, we'll do that. Right now, they are holding all the cards. Sebring said he needs to see the video, because right now it appears investigators are fearful of anyone seeing the footage outside of their ranks. "At this point, I don't know what's being investigated, since it has been determined that the shooting was justified. What I see is the police policing the police. "We've also talked to Tarsha Gary, who witnessed the incident. There's an issue with her credibility, because she was on probation at the time of the shooting, and she has an arrest history." Sebring said Gary was with Javon prior to the shoot ing, and told him to go back in side his apartment. "We've also learned that Javon dressed like a lot of young men his age, wearing pants that were too big for him, and he had to hold them up. "We believe he didn't have a gun, but was holding up his pants to keep them from falling as he ran. We also believe the shotgun came from another source, and we doubt it was dropped from the third floor. Sebring said the bottom line is they want to see the evi dence officials have so they will know what really happened. "They are trying to get Ms. Gary to make a statement without her counsel being pres ent. Because she's on proba tion, they tried to get her probation officer to have her come to an office, and she would hold her until detectives arrived to interview her. "Since they don't have a warrant or subpoena, we told them she'd release a statement only when her legal counsel was present." "I feel bad for everyone af fected by this, but hiding the evidence creates a lot of suspi cion." Reporter Leon B.

What Unemuloved Voters Should Remember L isten. Many politicians count on our having short memories, or that we simply won't take time to dis cover the truth about what is propaganda and what is a key issue. Such may be so for some. But for you voters and prospective voters who read our paper, we intend to remind you to watch out for folks who have consistently voted against your best interest. No doubt, unemployed American voters need to be mindful that certain Congressional Conservatives andRe publican governors have made it their mission to oppose federal stimulus funding, (free money for needy societies) and, have refused to accept funds that could have created countless jobs across this nation. Also certain Conservatives have refused to support the ending of tax write-offs and deductions for businesses that take jobs to foreign countries. The most recent slap-in-the-face was when Conserva tives refused to support a "Bring the Jobs Home Act," which would have given businesses a 20 percent tax cut for expenses incurred for returning jobs home to Amer ica. Republicans also opposed to extend the reduction of payroll taxes for businesses, an act that would uve saved millions of jobs. "Why?," you ask. You know why. Look at the face of l our current President. Then look at the face of the sus w pects. (!) Our civil war is not over. And the unemployed voter is 'caught in the middle. The first time I had a chance to see the gunman re sponsible for shooting six people inside of a Sikh temple in Oak Creek, Wisconsin, I thought to myself, "I've seen this guy before. Well not him, exactly more or less his type actually. He was the kid at m y junior high school who other kids would use to test their knock out power. While he could take a punch i t alwa y s amazed me how he ne ver fought back. Over the years I' v e seen him on other occasions as well and each time his appearanc e was different. Sometimes he would wear his head bald or with a military buzz cut. But, there were also times when I could swear he looked like Tom Cruise. More often than not I would see him in either his red suspenders punk rock t shirt and black Doc Martin boots outfit or his white hood and robe ensemble. But on oc cas i on I've caught him going to work wearing the uniform of a law enforcement officer as well The versatility he can displa y is incredible. One minute he can be driving a fire truck and the very next he could be cov ering h i s white robe with a b l ack one and walking into a courtroom where he takes a seat behind a bench with a gavel in hand. Compared with that setting I'd rather see him with a hundred guns. His favorite attire I be lieve, is a suit and tie. He usu ally puts those on when he has to go to Washington, D. C. to vote on legislation. I think he even has plans on making his home the White House one da y But something tells me that he's lived there before also. This gu y gets around al ri ght In fact, I've been seein g him on the regular lat e ly. In here he s in his rawest form Hi s body is usually cov ered in tattoos depicting swastikas iron crosses, light ning bolts and images of Vikings. The funny thing is that when I compare him to the person he is on the street, he' s a totally different gu y The barking, hate-filled dude they show at rallies call ing people "n---," "K--" and "S--" is more like a kit ten behind this wall. In here surrounded by the objects of his contempt, he doesn't have the slightest desire to set off the so called race holy war he so often speaks of in front of cameras No, in here where he can get it the way he wants it y ou re more than likely to find him wanting to be a "n---s" friend than his enemy In a desperate attempt to keep his teeth where they belong, he reverts back to that quiet kid I first saw on the school play ground so many years back. This is why it doesn't sur prise me that he shoots un armed i nnocents and bums down churches when no one is looking. That kind of low life weasel activity is a large part of h i s character. To me, taking that kind of action isn t indicative of a su perior warrior race." In f act, that kind of behavior i s more i n line with what mos t people would consider a coward And fitting of that att ri bute I think I know the perfect tattoo he can add to h i s impres s ive collection A yellow canary Yeah I know this gu y and so do you His looks and occupa tion may change but his men tality never does. And that's why, as despicable and weak as he may be, he' s still a threat. But you can say that about anybody who finds courage in the handle of a pis tol or, even more ominou s ly, a position of power.

Local Judge Rejects Lawsuit To Elder.Charles Davis Remove Justices From Ballot Elevated To JUSTICE PEGGY QUINCE BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel City Editor Wednesday afternoon, a Leon County Judge rejected a l a wsuit seeking to remove three Florida Supreme Court Justices from the November ballot. Judge Terry Lewis, of the Second Judicial Circuit, agreed with attorneys representing the Justices The Florida Department of Law Enforcement previously ruled that no wrongdoing had occurred. Secretary of State Ken Detzner also determined that the three Justices, Peggy Quince, Fred Lewis and Barbara Pariente should remain on the ballot. Every six years, tlle names of Florida Supreme Court Justices appear on the ballot for a yes or no retention vote. Voters Bernard Long, of Lee County, Ron Flores, of Seminole County, anq the Southern Legal Foundation filed the lawsuit. Judge Lewis re jected it, stating that the plain tiffs failed to prove they were personally harmed and that they had no standing to bring the lawJUSTICE R. FRED LEWIS suit Judge Lewis dismissed the lawsuit with prejudice. I don t think your clients get to speak for everybody. He also said "We'll let the District Court of Appeal decide whether I'm right or not," he said anticipating an appeal is filed pertaining to his decision Judge Terry Lewis heard arguments from Shannon Goessling, Executive Director and Chief Legal Counsel, of the Southeastern Legal Foundation. Attorney Eric Haug repre. sented the Justices. The lawsuit centers around the allegation that the three Jus tices interrupted an official ses sion of the Florida Supreme Court in order to prepare and file campaign documents for their respective judicial merit reten tion elections, on April 20th, the last day to file paperwork to ap pear on the November ballot. State Representative Scott Plakon filed the com plaint and asked the state to launch an investigation to deter mine if the three had violated state law.

So, I'll put my track record up against anybody in terms of us putting in place broad based programs that ulti mately had a huge benefit for African American businesses. WASHINGTON Presi dent Barack Obarna and the Democratic National Committee raised $75 million in July for the president's re-election cam paign. The total was well below the $101 million that GOP rival Mitt Romney and the Republican National Committee raised last month. July is the third straight month that Romney and the Republican Party have raised more money than Pres. Obarna and the Democratic Party. Pres. Obarna is also facing an onslaught of fundraising by well-funded, GOP-leaning polit ical action committees. First Lady Michelle Obarna graces the September 2012 cover of Ladi e s Home Journal, which features an ex clusive interview with both the first lady and President Obarna. The article focuses on the tight relationship the cou ple enjoys, their vibrant affec tion for each other, and how athletics can increase the par ticipation of young women in leadership roles. Regarding encouraging girls to embrace their power, the first lady said, "We have to start with them while they're young and instill in girls a sense of confidence.

I knew that he was the candidate we needed at the time and I was inspired by the positive change he promised for our country. Right now, in this 2012 elec tion, there is far too much at stake for us to sit on the side lines Simply put, now we've got to have our President's back. He needs our help And voting is not enough. Don't get me wrong, voting is extremely important. As both a woman and an African American, I know that countless people fought so that I could have the right vote. They risked their lives in the hope that those first three words of our constitution "We the people" would include ALL of the citizens of these United States. But having a voice in the political process is about more than just voting. It is about participating fully. It's about doing whatever you can to elect the leaders that this country needs right now. If we want our voices heard we must ask ourselves: What more can I do? Can you make phone calls? Can you knock on doors? Can you donate money or organize a local fuQ.d raiser? Can you or ganize with your church? Can you increase awareness within your family? Can you make sure your friends vote? Can you talk to your Can you __ help register eligible voters?

But, playing flag football made me more interactive. I was also involved in a lot of clubs in high school, as well as a program called "Best Buddies." It's a program for mentally challenged children, and I learned a lot from that experience. Jonilda said her father helped her to be more of a go-getter, and helped her stay focused. "My mom, Mathilda Francios, helped me when it came time for me to grad uate. She was instrumental in helping me get organized, even though she was getting home late from work. I actu ally studied until 3 a. m. to make sure I was ready. If it weren't for my mom motivating me, I don't think I would have made it." John Francios said his daughter is going to make Tampa proud of her. "She wants to give others coming behind her confi dence, and she wants them to know that education should always come first.

Those watching the game will see Shannon Eastin serving as the line judge for the game. Ms. Eastin is one of 17 referees hired as replacement referees while union officials negotiate a new contract.

"I remember when they wouldn't allow fema le news reports in the locker room years ago. We have some of the best female news reports covering sports and I feel that she will do a great job as a referee. Andre Walker said "Yes. Women are capable of performing most jobs that men do. They are intellectually and physicall y as qualified to compete. Their participation in the NFL will open doors and provide better opportunities for inspiring young women fresh out of college. The NFL must be commend ed on this decision. I person ally think and feel that this is a very positive move for all women." Ms. Tony a Lewis said, A female referee (Judge) is just as knowledgeable as a male in sports. Women have been a fan of sports since they started. "I always wondered why we do not see women referees (Judges) myself. But to hear the news did my heart some good. I'm overjoyed to see women liberating again. Keto Nord Hodges said, "Certainly the NFL is ready for a female line judge. Of course, Shannon Eastin will be coming up due to the current lockout so, not only could the move be tem porary, it could also be a pub lic relations move by the NFL in response to the current group of officials being locked out in a labor dispute. "The NFL is by far the nation's most popular sport.

James Ransom said, "To ask if the NFL is ready for a female referee is like ask ing if the world is ready for a female president of the United States of America or a CEO of a Fortune 500 Company, or an officer in the military or an astronaut, or an Olympian and so on.

Armwood Plavers lose 1118 111111 Garrard lOP ep Repon 11 Vilma Ch F M-Eligibilitv Appeal Sellleme oner an or lam BY LEON B. CREWS Sentinel Staff Writer The burden of the Armwood High School scandal has appeared to cost thr ee players their eligibility. Four Armwood players were seeking to regain their athletic eligibility, after their parents were accused of falsifying information so the young men could attend Armwood On Friday, the Florida High School Athletic Association appeals committee allowed only senior Aaron Evans, a 6 5 270 pound offensive line man, to retain his eligibility to pla y at Armwood. Senior offensive lineman, Gabe Nold, junior running back Greg Newton, and junior linebacker Craig Carrington were denied eli gibility, and can' t play any sport until the spring of 2013. The committee unanimously voted against Newton and Carrington, and 6-1 against Nold. The denials carry a 365-day period of ineligibility. Evans was allowed to stay by a vote of 6-1. Atty. Peter Hobson, who represented all four students athletes, said Nold, Newton, and Carrington will appeal the decision of the appeals committee before the Florida High School Athletics Association executive board next month. Hobson said he's at a loss trying to understand why they passed one, and not all four "In my opinion, all four cases were the same. The par ents of all 4 young men had divorced or separated., and they were living with their fathers People in the school system see this in a different mentality. A lot of these cases get swept up in the 'Armwood High School Scandal' head lines without giving any con cern to the kids. Hobson said the committee didn t recognize the fact that although the parents ma y not live together, as far as the children are concerned, they are still a family. Another factor is the dual policy of what school Choice says and what the FHSSA says. I know there have been exceptions, and that's wh y it makes no sense that these boys are being punished The entire policy isn t fair across the county in the way it's applied. Ru1es and regula tions must be made that make sense." Hobson said he doesn' t know how long the process will take, but he's confident things will be set straight. JONATHAN VILMA NEW YORK -The NFL calls a report it has offered a settlement and reduced sus pension to Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma completely inaccurate. Vilma has been suspended for the 2012 season for his role in the Saints bounty program, which he adamantly has claimed did not exist. The league allegedly offered Vilma an eight-game suspension if he would drop his defamation lawsuit against NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. "No such settlement offer has been made," NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said Monday. "We will continue to respect the court proceedings on this matter and have no further comment at this time. A judge has ordered the league and Vilma's represen tatives to hold confidential set tlement talks.

Crime Youthful onender Given 100 Years JERE WALKER Sentenced to too Years in prison Recently, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that juveniles cannot be given life sentences unless a murder occurred. The ruling prompted courts throughout the nation to revisit cases of juvenile inmates facing life sentences. One of those individuals is Jere Walker, who at the age of 41, has spent the last 24 years in prison. Walker was 17 when he was sentenced to five life sentences. Walker was the youngest member of a group who roamed the streets of Tampa on June 29, 1988 The group robbed former Hillsborough County Judge and State Attorney E. J. Salcines and his wife at gunpoint as they and a friend were returning from dinner. Salcines was injured as he attempted to fight off the attack. Walker allegedly stuck a gun in the face of oral surgeon Antonio Castro. The gun jammed when he tried to fire it Later that day, the group is said to have confronted a Texas couple, forced them into their motel room, and Walker allegedly sexually battered the woman. Her husband was held at gunpoint and her children were held in the bathroom. During an earlier hearing, Walker apologized for the pain he had caused. However, Judge Debra Behnke was not impressed with his apology and sentenced him to a total of 100 years in prison. He was given two 30-year sentences for the robberies that must run consecutively. She also sentenced him to 40 years for two counts of sexual battery. AriDed .Robberv suspect sought Armed robbery suspect. The Hillsborough County Sheriffs Office is asking the public for help in identifying an armed robbery suspect. On August 7th at 3:13 a. m., a man entered the Internet Cafe, at 5835 Memorial Highway, carrying a plastic grocery bag. Deputies said the man used another bag to cover hiS hand and implied he had a weapon. He demanded money from the employee, and fled on foot after the employee complied. The suspect is described as a Black male, 20 to 30 years old, 6'1" tall, and weighing from 180 to 200 pounds. Anyone with information on this suspect is asked to call (813) 247-8200. Judge Rules Woman linked To Pollee Deaths can BeRaUied CORTNEE BRANTLEY ... Jury could not agree if she was guilty of charge Last month, a jury dead locked after not being able to agree whether a woman was guilty of not telling police her companion was armed during a traffic stop. She was arrested and charged with a federal crime and the prose cutor vowed to retry her. Earlier this week, Judge James Moody, Jr., cleared the way for the retrial of Ms. Corblee Brantley. Ms. Brantley, 24, was arrested two years ago on a federal charge of concealing inform:ation from law enforcement after her companion, Dontae Morris, 26, allegedly shot and killed Tampa Police Officer David Curtis, 31, and Officer Jeff Kocab, also 31.

CREWS Sentinel Staft'Writer The West Tampa Commu nity Group has let it be known to elected officials and other community groups that Old West Tampa needs to benefit from the proposed Riverwalk project. Facilitator for the group, Dwight Bolden, said it's im portant that a representative of the WTCG be present when discussions start about the project coming through their community. "The city is spending a lot of money on a lot of projects, and all we want to know is how we will benefit economically from some of these projects," said Bolden. "We know there is about $16 million being appropriated for the Riverwalk project, and we're aware of the amount of money the city has spent on the Republican National Conven tion coming to town." Bolden said West Tampa has been neglected for too long, and outsiders have come in and taken advantage of a lot of real estate opportunities. "We want to see West Tampa grow, but we also want to see the people working or at least see their businesses work ing," said Bolden. "Far too much money is leaving our community by DWIGIIT BOLDEN some of the merchants, and we need to find a way to keep some of that money here, and create jobs and more busi nesses. "We are also looking into other ways we can attract eco nomic interest into thearea, and ignite some positive growth." Bolden said he will con tinue to take the lead in dealing with city officials and others who have other interests in West Tampa that don't neces sarily include the future of the people. "We understand that com munities change, but they aren't supposed to change at the expense of the people. "The WTCG wants to see prosperity in Old West Tampa, and that starts with making sure we aren't forgotten or being walked over."

Head Start/EariJ Head Stan Given Achievement Award These children are busy in the garden at one of the bead start centers. BY LEON B. CREWS Sentinel StaffWriter The Hillsborough Head Start/Early Head Start pro gram has been recognized. The National Association of Counties recognized the program during their annual conference on July 15th in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania with the 2012 Achievement Award for its innovative pro gram, "There's A Caterpillar On Our Calabaza." Head Start/Early Head Start Director, Louis Finney, said the program was created to strengthen focus on math and science development for children at tending Head Start by creat ing a sustainable garden project. "There's a Caterpillar on Our Calabaza" incorporates beginning math and science ideas that children naturally learn as they explore and play. These ideas include measurement, counting, ob serving and describing. Mr. Finney, who has been director for 7 years, said he thinks they are doing pretty good right now. "We've brought in $28 million from other sources to expand services, and we've readied a lot of people. "We spend a lot of time recruiting in area churches, and advertising in local pub lications. Although Head Start has been around for 4 7 years we still have a lot of parents who prefer to home school their children." Mr. Finney said they av erage about 92% attendance, and all of their parents are LOUIS FINNEY lieadStart/Early Head Start Director working or in. training. "We promote self-suffi ciency among our parents. We prefer providing oppor tunities for others to come aboard. "We get children from all kind of sources, and we're taking care of children who are in the care of their grand parents. We also have about 400 children from homeless families We're thankful to have a center at Metropolitan Ministries." On the award, Mr. Finney said this is their first recognition from this agency. "We received a competi tive grant to provide more training, improve science and math scores, and we saved money through a horticultural program and by re cycling water. These projects proved to be beneficial aca demically for the children." Mr. Finney said during his tenure, there has been some restructuring, and their budget has practically dou bled thanks to grants. They've also added almost too new employees. "This agency is very de pendent on what happens politically," said Mr. Finney. "Our Board of County Commissioners and County Administrator, Mike Merrill, are very strong supporters for us." Mr. Finney said he's pleased that their parents are completely involved in their budget process, and they also have decision making au thority. "It's always a challenge running an agency, but g thanks to the state House of Representatives, it appears """' we will get a slight budget in.? crease, and the BO.C.C. continues to provide supplements for working parents." ., r 0 :a c en m z z m r IJI c: r r m z "U c: IJI r c;; :I: m c m < m -t c: m en c z c ., :a a

Local law Center Targets Racial Discrimination In Schools BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel City Editor The Southern Poverty Law Center has filed a se ries of Civil Right com plaints against Florida School districts. ceived 23 days of out-of school suspension during the 2011-12 school year for minor infractions such as chewing gum, mouthing off," and talking in class; The organization alleges that African American stu dents are subject to harsh disciplinary policies at rates that are much higher than those for white students. During a telephone con ference, Attorney Stephanie Langer, Staff Attorney for the Southern Poverty Law Center said her office received complaints from parents in the coun ties of Escambia, Bay, Okaloosa Flagler, and Suwannee. The complaints were filed with the U. S. Justice Department and two investigations have been opened. The other three complaints are under consideration. Atty. Stephanie Langer, (right) of the Southern Poverty Law Center said at a news conference that Mrican-American children nationwide and in Florida face 'unforgiving disciplinary measures at alarmingly higher rates than their white counterparts.' iSPLC Southern Poverty Law Center S.D., a 10-year-old ele mentary student in Suwan nee County, was suspended more than 20 times during the 2010-11 school year for non-violent behavior. He was provided no home work, nor the ability to make up the work he missed while suspended; and Attorney Langer said they obtained the majority of their information from information submitted to their respective districts. She said information from those counties is an indica tion that there are problems throughout the state. "They are criminalizing children for being children. We are not talking about vi olent crimes, drugs or weapons. They are pushing kids out of school and put ting their future at risk. "If school districts truly want to provide a quality education to all oftheir stu dents, they will reform these discriminatory poli cies," she said. She stated that the stu dents are given a trespass warning if they are sus pended. The cases where children are suspended in clude tardiness and disor derly conduct. If they return to the school, then they are arrested. Some sta tistics she cited were: In Escambia County, African American students GIRLS RAISED IN THE SOUTH USF College of Education 4202 E. Fowler Ave. Entertainment by Jazz Artist T. Foxx, The Dancing DJ-JT Master of Ceremony: Alexx Jordan BEVERAGES & SiDE DISHES PROVIDED -.cal Sandy represent 35% of the stu dent population, but 65% of out-of-school suspensions. Okaloosa County African Americans account for 12% of the population, but 24% of out-of-school suspen sions; Bay County African Americans comprise 15% of the student population and 30% of out-of-school sus pensions. In Suwannee County, African Americans repre sent 14% of the student population, and 31% out-of schools. In Flagler County, African Americans repre sent 16% of the population and 31% of out-of-school suspensions. Attorney Langer said some examples include: Several cases described in the complaint il1ustrate how African-American children are punished more harshly and more frequently than white students: M.C., a student in Es cambia County was sus pended and arrested for "trespassing" after purchas ing a hot meal at a neigh boring high school. Before this incident, M.C. had no history of discipline issues; J.B., an 11-year-old ele mentary student in Okaloosa County, received a five-day suspension for having a cell phone in class. The school district classi fied it as "inappropriate be havior;" D.G., a 12-year-old student in Bay County, re-L.H., a student in Flagler County, was written up 1 9 times during the 2011-12 school year. Each instance was for minor, nonviolent misconduct. Attorney Langer said, "We are hoping to raise awareness and allow the districts to look at their own policies and make changes. The answer is to add dis cipline in the classroom and not remove the kids. It is proven that alternative schools do not address the needs of the kids." Attorney Langer con cluded by stating that any decisions made should in clude members of the African American commu nity at the table.

Promises! Promises! God has a unique and strange way to reveal and manifest the promises He makes to His people. Many people have fainted or lost their way when it comes to the pro mises of God. Not because God did not fulfill His pro mise, but the promise was manifested in a strange way. This is the event of the time of our lesson this week in Isaiah 9:1-7. God made several promises to the peo ple of Judah. God has promised them justice, but the justice does not come in a way they anticipate. those who were in distress will have no honor (vs. 1). God is going to turn things around for those who walk in His will and His way. The word the prophet speaks to the people brings their future into their cur rent position to give them hope. He says the people walking in darkness have seen a great light; for those living in the shadow of death a light has dawned (vs. 2). God speaks of turning sit uations around. God's promise to the righteous is they will have no more C gloom; those who are exa: alted will be humb led and LL. Darkness and the shadow of death are two forms that exist in the absence of God Those living outside of God and void of a relationship with God live in darkness and dwell in the shadow of death. The blessing or promise to those living in these two states is that light has come.

Blessings abound when you live and dwell in the light. Verses three and four identifies several blessings that the people experienced; multiplication, increased joy, rejoicing, and deliver ance. When you start living in the light of God's presence you will experience increase in every area of your life. God will allow you to have joy in your life. Joy is an in ternal stare more than it is about external situations. Regardless of what is going on around you, God will give you joy There are some who are in bondage and living under the oppressive hand of an enemy. But when you come into the light of God's word and living with Him, He will deliver you from your op pressor God will give you a reason to rejoice. Rejoicing i s celebration When you live with God there are many reasons to rejoice. When you learn the uniqueness and awesome ness of God you will discover that God gives a reason to rejoice God assures them that there is greater reason for rejoicing. As a result of being delivered or liberated the blood stained clothes of the warriors can be burned (vs. 5). There will be no more need for these items because God is going to give you peace. The final reason for re joicing comes with birth. God gives a gift of life to the people that is extraordinar ily amazing. To us a child is born, a Son is given; He will be called Wonderful Coun selor, Mighty God, Everlast ing Father, Prince of Peace (vv. 6 & 7).

Part I Florida law requires all car owners to purchase Personal Injury Protection ("PIP ) insurance, which is also called No-Fault since i t provides benefits regard less of who was at fault for a crash. Basically PIP provides up to $10, ooo of insurance to the policyholder relative s l iving in the policyholder s household as well as som e passengers in their car and even pedestrians who are hit by the insured car. The main idea is supposed to be getting speedy pay ment of medical bills and lost income to everyone involved in an auto acci dent. PIP doesn' t cover compensation for pain and suffering (that's liability insurance, which is optional for most people), but it should at least cover the basics of medical bills and wage losses However, a new PIP law w a s passed b y the Republican legislature in Ma y The law went into effect on July 1, 2012, but portions of the law dealing with medical and death ben efits will not become effec tive until January 1, 2013 There are several provisions that could be harmful to people who end up in a wreck.

The 1871 Act creates what is in effect a less demanding interpretive requirement because the statute cannot justify a disregard of the will of Congress as manifested, either expressly or by neces sary implication in a subse quent enactment." Great Northern R. Co. v. United States, 208 U. S. 452, 465. Hence, this Court has treat ed the 1871 Act as setting forth an important back ground principle of interpre tation that requires courts, before interpreting a new criminal statute to apply its new penalties to a set of pre Act o ffenders, to assure t h e ms elve s b y the "plain import or "fai r implication o f the new statute that ord i nary interpreti v e considerations point clearly in that d irection. Second, the Sentencing Reform Act sets forth a special and diffe r ent background principle in (a)(4)(A)(ii) wh i ch applies unless ex. post facto conc e rns are pre sent Thus new lower Guidelines amendments apply to offend ers who committed an offense before the adoption of the but are sen tenced thereafter

Snhllls cases On The Rise In Hillsborough Countv The Hillsborough County Health Department (HCHD) is notifying local physicians and the community that the number of cases of syphilis infections has been increas ing in Hillsborough County. So far this year, 126 cases of infectious and early latent Syphilis have been reported, which is nearly a 65 percent increase during the same time period last year when 85 cases were reported to the health department. Syphilis is spread by inti mate contact with an in fected partner. Left untreated, it can lead to se vere disease and even death Studies indicate a 2-5 times increased risk for transmis sion of HIV, the virus that causes AIDS, in the presence of syphilis. Syphilis may also be transmitted from an in fected pregnant woman to her baby. These infants are at risk of lifelong disabilities and death. Anyone that is sexually ac tive should be aware of the signs and symptoms of syphilis.

Although diacetyl forms naturally in fermented bev erages, such as beer and wine, its chemical structure is similar to a substance that makes beta-amyloid proteins clump together in the brain. This clumping, the study au thors note d is a hallmark of Alzheimer s disease. The study authors pointed out that other experiments revealed that diacetyl also crosses the blood-brain bar rier," which helps protect the brain from dangerous sub stances. Diacetyl also pre vented a beneficial protein from protecting nerve cells. "In light of the chronic ex. posure of industry workers to diacetyl, this study raises the troubling possibility of long-term neurological toxi city mediated by diacetyl," Robert Vince and colleagues concluded in a news release from the American Chemical Society. While the study found an association between chronic diacetyl exposure and certain brain protein processes, it did not prove a cause-and-effect relationship.

Nationa c Pres. Obama Suppons Trawon's I other To sue ; Bill To Exempt Olympians Falbars Vlcsll Insurance Company Of PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA WASHINGTON -The White House says President Barack Obama supports a measure that would exempt U.S. Olympians from taxes on their prizes. Press secretary Jay Carney said Monday that Pres. Obama would do "everything we can to support our athletes," including sign ing in to law legislation introduced by Republican Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida. Rubio wants Americans who win medals to keep all of the prizes the U.S. Olympic Committee awards to win ners. Olympians who earn gold medals receive a $25,000 price, silver winners get $15,000 and bronze winners pick up $10,000. Rubio has called taxes on the earnings ridiculous and has introduced legislation that would let the medal winners keep all their prize money. San Francisco's lavor Halts Stop And Frisk Plans MAYOR ED LEE SAN FRANCISCO San Francisco s mayor has aban doned a police stop-and-frisk proposal designed to get weapons off the streets. There was an outcry after Mayor Ed Lee said in June that he was considering stop and frisk, which involves offi cers stopping and searching suspicious people for weapons. Stop and frisk is popular in New York City but critics liken it to racial profiling. The mayor now says he will instead rely on targeted police enforcement, crimetracking software, and increased involvement by ministers to combat the gun violence. Lee is announcing details of his alternative plan on Tuesday at Bayview's Calvary Hill Community Church. White MiSSiSSiPPi Church Apologizes For Barring Black Wadding CHARLES And TE'ANDREA WilSON JACKSON, Miss. A pre dominantly white Mississippi church has apologized for its refusal to allow a Black cou ple to marry in its sanctuary, though the couple said Monday they knew nothing of the apology until a reporter called. The First Baptist Church of Crystal Spri_ngs posted the apology on its website Sunday, saying it was seeking "forgiveness and reconcilia tion with Charles Wilson and Te' Andrea Henderson Wilson, their families and friends and God. "This wrong decision resulted in hurt and sadness for everyone. Both the pastor and those involved in the wedding location being changed have expressed their regrets and sorrow for their actions," reads part of the six paragraph statement. However, Charles Wilson said no one from the church had contacted him or his wife. "I can't believe they think they've apologized," Wilson said. He said only one or two people from the church have contacted him in recent weeks, and they did so per sonally and not as represen tatives of the church. Beadna T h C -11 -4 Pres. Obama own OIDe OIDIDUnl .? Northeast Pennsylvania Spirit of 1776, a branch of the Tea Party, has sent out an email blast with Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, Patrick Henry and others, taking turns assaulting President Barack Obama, reports Think Progress. According to these self-proclaimed American patriots, it's just for kicks and giggles. Where Son Died N A member of the Tea Party confirmed to Think Progress that the organization sent out the email because it was funny, and more importantly, because President Obama "may be a Muslim. In an appearance on "Anderson Cooper 360," Tea Party leader Mark Williams claimed that Pres. Obama was Racistin-Chief" and an Indonesian Muslim turned welfare thug," who did not have America 's best interest at heart. A series of recent developments in the Trayvon Martin case reveal that the parents of the slain teen are not sitting idly while their son's killer, George Zimmerman, awaits his fate. Sybrina Fulton filed paperwork last week to jumpstart a lawsuit against the insurance company for the Retreat at Twin Lakes home owners associatimi seeking monetary damages in the death of her 17-year old son within the gates of the town home community. In the documents, Travelers Casualty and Surety Company of America is seek ing clarification of its respon sibilities in Trayvon's death and requested the judge to strike down any chance of the company having liability in the case. According to a report, Travelers is asking the court for defense against paying monies to the Martin family and to rule that the company "has no duty to defend The TRAYVON MARTIN'S PARENTS Retreat at Twin Lakes," according to the filing While the courts are not releasing the amount of damages sought by Fulton, Travelers' 0 documents reveal that the :::!:! amount exceeds $ 7 5,000. C Martin family attorney :; Benjamin Crump said that m while Travyon's parents are Z committed to seeking justice for their son, he also feels m that his office should pursue r the claims against other entities that could be responsible r as well. r !!l z ""0 c: The University of Florida College of Pharmacy m r u; :1: m c m < m is Now Offering a U ue Career T raini CALLNOWI Online dasses start any time!
