And amidst boos and catcalls from the audience, Biden interjected, "He gonna put y'all back in chains. That's what he's gonna do!" The audience went wild, and so did the Republicans. "Yipe, yipe," they howled. "Race-baiting," they screamed at the top of their lungs!

SJX !n .There Are Thieves Among us ::::) ::::) <( BY LEON B. CREWS Sentinel StaffWriter (An Analysis) 0 I want to salute every hard fE working man and woman out there You earn the right to have nice things, including a car, and you deserve to feel safe in your home, and your property should also be safe. Unfortunately, that's not the case. In some community's there are people with no conscious, and they prey on opportunities provided them by the activities of their neighbors. There are a group of people out there who wait until you go to sleep, and enter your front and back yard, stealing anything that isn't secured. Lately, it seems their preference has been tire rims, as one resident found his truck sitting on all four rotors recently. Every person has the right a to protect their property, but ii: as a community, we also have u.. to look out for each other. C There are ways you can pro :i teet your home and property > when you're not home, or at C( night when you're sleeping. c This truck was broken into in East Tampa on Knollwood Street. The young man who owns this truck stated, "someone came into my driveway, broke into my truck, rolled it out the driveway, down the street to a vacant house, and stripped it." This had to happen between the hours of 12 midnight through 4 a. m. This is the third vehicle vandalized on Knollwood Street in the past 3 weeks. You can help by putting together a Crime Watch Group for your community. That way, everyone looks out for everyone else, and the group will always have a direct line to law enforcement if they see something suspi cious going on. Unfortunately, the thieves may live in your community. Be aware. It's really a shame. There are other ways you can protect what's yours, but the important thing is know ing your community, knowing the people in your communi ty, and not being afraid to call police and let them know about suspicious activity, or strange people lurking around. If we act together, we can protect each other and rid our neighborhood's of people who are just waiting to take from us what we've worked so hard for.

Former Black Republican Renounces Panv BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel City Editor An African American who has represented the Republican Party for the past 12 years has resigned. Joseph W. J. Robinson renounced the Republican Party because of several rea sons, including their lack of response to African American issues, businesses, and inclusion in the upcoming Republican National Convention slated for Tampa next week. Robinson officially changed parties on Friday, August 17, 2012. Robinson said, "I have sought an elected office here in Tampa several times without the support of the Republican Party. I have been outspoken on their outreach to Blacks and Latinos to no avail. I am able to confirm what Jim Greer has said in his affidavit on how the Republican Party treats and it's outreach to the Black com munity." Robinson, a Tampa native, further stated that since he became a Republican, his role has been to obtain inclusion for African Americans and other minori ties in the events sponsored by the party. He stated that his appointment to the SWFMUD Board gave him an opportunity to open doors that had previously been closed to minority. He further stated that dur ing the years, he has been able to witness the changes of the party from the time former Governor Jeb Bush took office and 2010 when the new Republican Tea Party, which he called "a n evangelical polit ical" Republican Party. During the years after Bush left office, opportunities for African Americans dis appeared. He stated that he attempted to develop business opportunities during the RNC, but all of his efforts were JOE ROBINSON blocked. "They have decided that they don't need the African American vote, so they are not awarding African Americans contracts. If any Blacks receive any business, it will be the trickle-down effect or the crumbs." Robinson said he was a staunch Democrat for the majority of his adult life. He is returning to his roots and said he does not plan to leave the Democratic Party again "I am the type of person who works regardless of what I'm involved with. I worked for the Republican Party and I intend to do the same thing for the Democrats. During this last election, I received more support from African Americans than I ever have. I intend to work to help other Democrats get elected. But, we must vote, we cannot do it unless everyone who can, participates in the voting process," Robinson said. "From my observation during the last election, I know that the only way President Barack Obama is going to be re-elected is through Absentee or Votes By Mail. Anyone can request a bal lot and all the y have to do is complete it, sign it, and return it The voters in Hillsborough County don' t even have to purchase a stamp, the postage is paid, Robinson said.

Local More Than 1,800 Felons Unaware Rights Restored ARTHENIAJOYNER ... State Senator BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel City Editor A recently released report indicates that there are approximately 17,000 Florida residents who may not know their right to vote has be_en restored. At least 13,000 of those individuals are not in cluded on the state s v9ter reg istration roll. The names are of individu als who were convicted of a felony, but who applied for their restoration of rights. However because they moved and did not provide a forwarding address, notification was impossible. Ms. Yvette Lewis, Polit ical Action Chairperson of the Hillsborough County Branch NAACP said of those 17,000 names, 1 ,816 are residents of Hillsborough County. The list of individuals applied for the rights restoration, but did not follow through with the Clemency Board Five years ago, then Governor Charlie Crist spearheaded the rights restoration rule. The names could include anyone who applied for rights restoration prior to the election of 2010. However, since that time, the Rick Scott Ad ministration repealed the rule The rule was repealed and a new rule was proposed and spearheaded by Pam Bondi within months of her becom ing the Attorney General in 2010. The new rule states that if a person is on a list to have his or her rights restored without a hearing, they must wait five years before they can apply. In the instances where a hearing is warranted the person must wait seven years before he or she can apply for rights restoration. Whether a hearing is reMS. YVETIE LEWIS ... NAACP Political Action Chairperson quired or not depends on the type of crime that was com mitted. Senator Arthenia Joyner said it actually takes even more time because the person must first prepare and then submit the application to have his or her rights restored. Senator Joyner further said, "It is important that e v erybody in the community assist us in getting the word out that there are thousands of ex-felons who have had their rights restored and don't know it. "This is an opportunity for those who have fully paid their debt to society to make their voices heard at the ballot box Let's join together and talk this up at our churches, beauty salons, barber shops, on the job and everywhere we go because OUR future is at stake in the upcoming presidential election." Ms. Lewis said, "It was been brought to my attention that the Florida Parole Com mission has Restoration of Civil Rights certificates of 17,604 as undeliverable. Through, hard work and determination I was able to get the complete list of certifi cates. Then, I discovered there were 1,816 Restoration of Civil Rights certificates in Hillsbor ough County. The NAACP is in the process oflocating these people to inform them that they are eligible to register to vote. "We have several people in the community that will be re searching and visiting each person on the list throughout the County. If you have ap plied or would like to check to see if your rights have been restored please contact Yvette Lewis, NAACP Political Action Chair at (813) 234-8683." OFFICE OF DATDilr'IA uan.11un.

What I saw recently at an E a s t Tampa restaurant disturbed me, and I feel the need to point this out. No matter where you go to eat, no one wants to know your food was handled and prepared in an unhealthy environment.

To me, that's unacceptable, and I don't want to think it's intentional and only happens at fast food eateries that serve majority African American customers. I'm not going to point out the exact restaurant I went to, but I'm alerting everyone out there to pay close attention to the people handling your food, and if you see something unhealthy, point it out.

N--iij Sports ...J w z Former Emplovee Files lawsuit Against Chad Johnson CHAD 'OCHOCINCO' JOHNSON Chad "Ochocinco" Johnson is being plagued by Murphy's Law. It's been just over a week since he was arrested for allegedly assaulting his wife, Evelyn Lozada, and now the former Miami Dolphins player is being sued, on top of mounds of other unfortunate luck. Johnson's former employee, Jacinth Preston, filed suit in Broward County, Fla. on Aug. 7, claiming that the 34year-old owes him $130,000 for providing several services including landscaping and decorat-ing. Preston filed a lien against Johnson, which may result in foreclosure, if he doesn't pay up. Ironically the wide-receiv er is already in fear of having his $400,000 Miami condo foreclosed on over thousands of dollars in unpaid maintenance fees. lobe Drops 68 Points In One Hall During Charitv Game i= Z KOBEBRYANT that fans via text they can choose a team to add 20 additional points to their tally!!!

Local West Tampa Businessman Feel s Communitv Needs 'Fence Mending' BY LEON B. CREWS Sentinel StaffWriter For tl}e past 23 years, Thomas Hill has operated a business on Main Street in West Tampa. Over the years he's observed the area going into transition, and he feels there's a lot of fence mending that needs to be among the business owners and resi dents in the area. "I think our biggest prob lem is we need to be repre sented better in this area. I feel someone needs to look at giv ing more exposure to what's going on, and that should be our elected officials. "People are just running wild around here, and the en tire area needs some kind of di rection. We will never accomplish a thing as long as we' re not getting along with each other. Mr. Hill said he thinks if the elected officials were more visible in West Tampa, they would have a better understanding of what's going on, and what needs to be done. "This is not a Black or white issue. Race has nothing to do with the problems we're facing. It s can't only be about the police not doing their job, because we need to do our job first. Everyone in West Tampa de serves to feel safe and earn a living like everyone else." Mr. Hill said all of the problems that exist in West Tampa can't be legislated, and the area can't be a safe haven for whoever wants to come in and do what they do. "Sometimes, things get out of control around here, and it seems no one cares, or they're scared to speak out. "Also, business owners come and go all the time, and that makes it difficult to form any kind of alliance. We've got to do a better job so things can get better. We have to respect each other so we can get re spect back. We can't stay com bative with each other, because nothing gets done that way." Annual Teenage Banle 01 The Bands To Be Held In October )lo c: C) c: C/) -4 N The 15th Annual Teenage Battle of the Bands will be held on Oct. 19 and 20 during the Hillsborough County Fair, and it's not too early to get your band pre-qualified. The entry fee is $so per band. Hillsborough County's Parks, Recreation & Conservation Department is looking for bands to participate in a competition that provides free studio time to the top two winners.

God's Word is a promise. If He speaks it you can count on it to come to pass. Ezekiel records the words God spoke about His people in the 34th chapter verses 23 through 31. God made some bold statements about what He will do for His peo ple and vowing to be with them -all ways. One of the valuable les sons for the church is to know what God has said. People will be less stressed and wor ried when they remember the words God has spoken during the difficult times of life. If have been threatened, bat tered, and captured. They have been taken out of their land to live in a foreign place and treated as though their life was worth nothing. But here God gives them a word of reconciliation and renewal. you cannot count on anything c in your life, you can always 0: find security in the word of LL God. God promises to them a shepherd who will care for them (vs. 23). People have folk who are over them but are not shepherds. There are rulers in the world, but they may not be shepherds. When you come out of this difficult time in your life God is going to put someone over you that will love you, care for you, and take care of you. While you will have a shepherd of God 's appoint ing, you must always remem ber that He is God (vs. 24). c z a: w > w c w :I: CJ) ::::i ID ::I ll. z i= w ...J ...J ::I ID ...J w z i= z w CJ)

Readers Share Opinion About Congressman's 'Rape' Statement TODD AKIN MISSOURI CONGRFSSMAN BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel City Editor Recently, Republican Senate Candidate Todd Akin was asked during an interview on a St. Louis television station about his views on abortion. The six-term mem O her of Congress said that fE women s bodies blocked an 0 unwanted pregnancy during z what he referred to as a legit c( imate rape. He also made the following C statement: "If it's a legitimate ffi rape, the female body has ::;) ways to try to shut that whole 1thing down. But let's assume that maybe that didn' t work or something: I think there should be some punishment, but the punishment ought to be on the rapist, and not attacking the child." Several members of the Republican Party have asked Akin to withdraw from the race for Senator of Missouri. While he admits that he mis spoke," he refuses to with :;) draw. m Some Sentinel readers ..J shared their opinion about his comments. Attorney Clinton Paris Z said, "Repre sentative c( Akin's com9 ments reflect his gross igno ..J ranee about &L human repro-duction. Consensual sex or rape both have about a s% chance of resulting in preg nancy. While the statement shows that Representative Akin is very dumb, being dumb does not disqualify him from running for office. "However the voters should be the ones to disqual ify him when the election comes by voting for his oppo nent What is most appalling is that Representative Akin currently holds office. He is a reflection of the kind of people we have in Washington, D C., making decisions for our country. We can and must do better in selecting our national leaders." Attorney Roderick Ford said, "It sounds like Todd Akin is really saying that rape victims who are impregnated might have actually enjoyed having sexu al intercourse with the rapist. If this is what Mr. Akin meant, then he should drop out of the Senatorial campaign. However, fairness dictates that Mr. Akin be given a reasonable opportunity to explain his comment to the Electorate Ms. Tonya Lewis said, "I'm just astounded by what I heard. What is a legitimate rape? I don't care how you put it, Todd Akin should not be in the Senate with stupid and harsh ges ture. He needs to drop out Ross Anderson said, His comments should be a wakeup call for all Ameri-cans, 3838 N 29th_ Street, Tampa, FL 33610 813.248.6600 II www.fbcch.org Dr. S. Evan Burrows, Sr. Pastor especially the African American community. If this is the kind of leadership that we have to look forward to in the 21st Century, then we all are in trouble. We need to groom the next generation of young people to become our local and state leaders now so tliat we don't repeat history with no voice and no representation. James Ransom said, "Republican Senate candidate Todd Akin's statement confirms that he is out of touch and will soon be out of _....,...a.---J sight and out of mind. He may have proven something that has been a mystery on earth for decades. "Let s be honest all people make mistakes and sometimes take the wrong turn, but Akin is a long way off the track, so to speak. It's time for him to go home and sit a spell There is probably no space available for him in limbo or the mezzanine floor, at this time. "He should apologize, ask for forgiveness then pack his bags, turn in his keys and hit the road. We must stand with the ladies and demand the departure of Akin for being insensitive, indifferent and uncaring. Danny Green said, "I disagree with Todd Akin's remarks and comments on "legitimate rape. It should be the right of the woman to choose to keep her pregnancy ser1es or not. In this situation, cases could be handled on a caseby-case basis. Every child should have the right to live." Howard Harris said "Todd Akin's views are supported by the 2012 Republican Party platform just completed in Tampa. "This party believes in big government support of life from conception to birth. After the birth, the mother and child are on their own. '"Then the Republicans believe in no government support for Medicaid and education and the repeal of Obamacare. They want to expand our misnamed defense system so that our military can go around the world killing and being killed in the pursuit of oil. This party, who are so pro life before birth supports the death penalty for rapist, mur derers and doctors who per form abortions. Keto Nord I don't to know or understand all, but it seems to be obvious (and ignorance or apathy are the only excuses for more people not noticing this) that every time our GOP friends take control of state government they immediately cut funding for Science, Arts and Education. "That this happens continuously on a national scale implies that there is a certed behind-the-scenes effort to de-educate the have nots, the masses, to purposely keep present and future generations ignorant and thus economically & socially IMPOTENf. That my friends, is the BIG PICTURE and what you get when you elect people who do not relate to everyday, common Americans. -Billy Wheeler said, "This current political flack is simply one more example of the extreme Right's way of thinking that is seeking to overtake the country's governance Why would he bow out of the race when voters can be so easily duped into electing people to office who do not represent the interests of the majority? "The Republican Party' s repeated use of emotionally gut-wrenching buzz words about "hot button issues" such as legalized abortion, same sex marriage, the birther movement, welfare reform, and the supposed war on drugs continually cause issues of race and big otry to trump reason, fairness and truth. "It is sad that scores of women working class whites elderly, and many gays and blacks will vote against our own interests when our passions distract us from key matters like job creation, edu cation, prison reform, afford able healthcare and econom ic Dr. Samuel Lamar Wright, Sr., said, "It is absurd! We do not need elected officials at any level who are insensitive and ignorant. The people of Missouri have work to do and should come out victorious by defeating him if he chooses not to bow out of the race." August 24, 2012 7P.M. August 25, 2012 7P.M. August26, 4P .M.

What's not to love? Here are a few tips: Do-It-Yourself: You don't need spe cial equipment to make homemade pops. Small paper cups make great molds. Sim ply fill, cover tops with foil, and insert a stick before freezing. Remove pops from cups by snipping top of cup and tearing away from pop. Play With Shape: Ice pop molds come in all sorts of fun shapes and sizes. Follow the manufacturer's directions for filling and removing molds. If a pop is stuck in a mold, run warm water on out side of mold for a few seconds and then gently move stick to loosen. Get Creative With The Stick: Use lollipop sticks, different shapes of food safe wooden craft sticks and colorful straws. To strengthen straws, insert lol lipop sticks through straws before freezing. Swirl, Layer And Stripe: For a swirled look, start with thick mixtures like pudding or yogurt and gently stir. To make multilayered pops, be sure each pop layer is frozen before adding the next layer. Keep It Cold: The temperature of your freezer should be zero degrees or colder so that pops freeze solid. Place pops in the back of the freezer where it's coldest. Serve 'Em Up!: Homemade pops are best enjoyed within a few days of mak ing them. Store pops in molds until ready to serve.

Delta MoUaa McdJfe Aclu C.CPiu floriU Hcalda.J IWI SldeW Gunlia Trleue Where's The Sodium;. About 90% of Americans eat more sodium than is rec ommended for a healthy diet Why is this a problem? Too much sodium increases a person s risk for high blood pressure. High blood pres sure often leads to heart dis ease and stroke. Where does all this sodium come from? Most of the sodium we eat comes from processed foods and foods prepared in restaurants. Sodium is al ready part of processed foods and cannot be removed. What Can Be Done? Everyone can: Choose to purchase healthy options and talk with your grocer or favorite restaurant about stocking lower sodium food choices. Read the Nutr i tion Fac t s label while s hopping to find the lowest sodium option s of your favorite foods. Eat a diet rich in fresh fruits and vegetables and frozen fruits and vegetable s without sauce. Limit processed foods high in sodium. When eating out, request lower sodium options. Support initiatives that reduce sodium in foods in cafeterias and vending ma chines. Stop Making bcuses, learn How To Be Healthv Excuses, excuses, excuses. They always seem to keep us from getting where we really want to be. It's time to push excuses off for good so you can drop that extra weight, quit your junk food habit, or finally get in shape. I'm too tired to exercise. Tell your body you're too tired to exercise and you'll downshift your energy production (thanks to a mechanism called feedback loops). Tell your body you need to walk and you'll generate the energy you need to take a daily jaunt. Make healthy be haviors automatic by pro gramming your body to want to move. I'm a terrible cook so I eat out a lot. Don't arrive at the restaurant starving! Eat a little healthful of fat, such as six walnut halves, before you get there The healthful fat in walnuts triggers a chain re action that slows the rate at which your stomach empties, so you'll feel fuller faster. Also drink at least one full glass of water before you order. This helps fill you up so you don't overeat. Ask for cut-up veggies instead of bread, and stick to an appe tizer or consider sharing I have foot pain and can't walk. When you're in pain, exercising might be the last thing you feel like doing, but it pays to keep moving. Workouts encourage your body to release endorphins neurotransmitters that act as natural painkillers. Try biking or swimming (there's more than one way to get your heart rate up!), but be sure to see a podiatrist to find out what's causing your pain. 1 Surprising BackTo-School Hazards Several recent trends com bined with long hours in crowded, germy classrooms can put kids at risk for a wide range of problems, from back pain to nerve injuries, infections, obesity, and bul lying In fact 40 percent of kids ages 5 to 17 g e t hurt or sick at school each year. Here are the health haz ards to watch for and how to prevent them. 1. Problem: Overloaded backpacks cause back pain. Solution: Weigh your child's backpack-and lighten the load. 2. Problem: Too much time parked in a chair. Solution: The CDC re commends at least an hour of physical activity for chil dren and adolescents. Make sure your kids are supple menting the exercise they're getting-or not getting--at school by playing outdoors after classes let out. 3 Problem: Crowded, germy classrooms. Solution: Commonsense precautions, such as making sure your kids wash their hands with soap and water, and avoid touching their mouth, nose and eyes. Also tuck tissues and hand sanitizer in their backpacks. A yearly flu vaccine can also be helpful. 4. Problem: Weight gain. Solution: Although sports drinks may be avail able in the vending machine, encourage kids to stick to water. And pack a healthy bag lunch rather opting for cafeteria meals where ketchup may be counted as a "vegetable" 5 Problem: A rise in cyberbullying. Solutions: Talk to y our children about c y berbull y ing so that they re comfort able to discu s s it with you or another adult if it happens to them. 6. Problem: Sleep depri vation. Solutions: Help your children set a schedule that allows them to complete all of their homewQrk in the af ternoon, so that they're not staying up late finishing it at the last minute. 7. Problem: Stress. Solutions: Provide homework assistance if nec essary and set a schedule so that kids aren t struggling with assignments for longer than necessary. A balanced diet, getting enough sleep and more exercise can also help children cope with the tension in their lives.

Whatever you put in your pan for dinner tonight, make sure you add a few squeezes of this: lemon juice. Marinating meats in lemon juice --or vinegar can help greatly reduce the production of harmful com pounds linked to aging and chronic disease. Cooking Compounds All foods -but especially ones derived from animals contain varying levels of compounds called advanced glycation end products (AGEs). These compounds are known to cause inflam mation and may open the door to faster aging. Cooking --especially high-heat meth ods -increase s formation of AGEs. HowAGEsAge Meats and full-fat cheeses contain the most AGEs, fol lowed by pork fish, and eggs -although even fruit veg etables, and whole grains may contain small amounts. Marinating your food is one way to minimize AGEs. Another option: Cook over low, moist heat. Boiling, poaching, steaming, and stewing are all great choices. Take Shon Walks To live longer Looking for a simple way to extend your life? All you have to do is give your body 15 minutes of physical activ ity a day and you'll win your self three extra years of life. Pretty amazing, right? Double Is Better When it comes to walking, a little more is always better. In fact, the World Health Or ganization and the Centers for Disease Control and Pre vention recommend 30 min utes of physical activity each day. By squeezing in an addi tional 15 minutes, you'll likely live even longer and make your daily life a lot more pleasurable. That's because: Thirty minutes of brisk walking (or any moderately intense activity) is a terrific antidepressant. It lowers your blood pres sure -good news for the 89% of Americans with high BP. Learn what causes high blood pressur e It helps tame type 2 dia betes especially if you mix in some strength training. Find out if your blood sugar is in the healthy zone. It decreases breast cancer risk by 30% and increases survival rate from a heart at tack by So%. Is Stress Damaging Your Skinil It's very hard to avoid stress. Between work fam ily and our overall busy lives we' re all being pulled in a million directions. The problem is that too much stress can hurt your body, and lead to certain prevent able illnesses ... and even obesity. Symptoms of stressed skin include dryness dull riess arid/ or breakouts. The Stress Hormone When we are stressed, a hormone called cortisol is re leased and wreaks havoc on our bodies. Lines and Wrinkles As soon as cortisol is re leased by the body, sugar levels in the blood increase Increased blood sugar also promotes a process called glycation in our skin. Glyca tion damages our skin's col lagen, causing it to become rigid, which increases lines and wrinkles. Dry And Damaged Skin In addition to causing gly cation, cortisol also de creases our skin's natural production of hyaluronic acid, which serves as a natu ral moisturizer for our skin. When skin is dehydrated, the enzymes in our skin that work to repair the damage don t work as well. Poor Complexion As if the effects of stress induced cortisol weren t enough, another byproduct of stress, epinephrine (or adrenaline) also works against our complexions. When epinephrine is pres ent, blood flow to the skin is decreased, which robs it of vital nutrients, including oxygen Less oxygen and sluggish circulation in gen eral leads to a dull, sallow complexion, and good circu lation is essential for a healthy glow. Cellulite When blood flow is de creased, toxins begin to build up in the skin as well. These toxins can contribute to a lackluster complexion, and many doctors and scientists believe toxins also play a role in cellulite development which causes loose, dim pled skin. How Can You Save Your Skin? Although stress is un avoidable, there are ways to manage it better. The good news is that the steps are simple, and they also benefit your overall health. Sleep -To help you catch more Zs, avoid eating late at night and try to establish a nightly routine that allows you to wind down before bedtime. And don't take your cell phone to bed with you. (The light of the screen can disrupt your body's sleep cycle.) Exercise Second to sleep, get some exercise. Not only does physical activity help you release stressful tension, it also boosts circu lation, which helps your complexion. Bonus effect: Exercise keeps you fit and wards off cellulite. Relax -It sounds obvious, but people who lead stressful lives have to make a con certed effort to slow down and relax. Deep breathing, meditating, and other forms of soothing and calming ac tivities can definitely help.

Next, the Special Comm ittee looked at the comments from everyone who spoke at the committee meetings. The Special Committee saw that a lot of the comments involved two of the most well-known for-profit lawyer referral services in Florida: 1 8oo-ASK-GARY and 1800-411-PAIN. Several people said that these two companies pres sured them into getting chi ropractic treatments that they felt were unnecessary. They also felt that these companies encouraged them to sign their legal rights awa y before they could obtain medical treatment.

Jackson says she was alerted to the intruder's presence when her dog began barking. She peeked out of her window and found a teen in her backyard trying to break in. Figuring she had to get to him before he got to her, she grabbed a pair of scissors and a fork and confronted the intruder. As he ran off, she struck the him in the neck with the knife.

ST. LOUIS -Missouri Congressman Todd Akin, a conservative Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate, sparked a furor and earned a rebuke from Mitt campaign after saying that women s bodies can prevent pregnancies in a legitimate rape" and that conception is rare in such cases. Akin, a six-term congress man running against incum bent Democrat Sen. Claire McCaskill, was asked in an interview broadcast Sunday on St Louis television station KTVI if he would support abortions for women who have been raped. "It seems to me first of all, from what I understand from doctors, that's really rare," Akin said. "If it's a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down, Akin said of a rape victim's chances of becoming pregnant. TODD AKINS Akin said in an emailed statement later Sunday that he "misspoke" during the interview, though the statement did not specify on which points or comments. "In reviewing my off-the cuff remarks, it's clear that I misspoke in this interview and it does not reflect the deep empathy I hold for the thousands of women who are raped and abused every year," Akin's statement said Chavis caner: Autoosv Reveals Meth, Various Druus In His svstem MEMPHIS, Tenn. -A man police say shot himself in the head while his hands were cuffed behind him in the back of an Arkansas patrol car tested positive for methamphetamine, anti-anxiety medication and other drugs, according to an autop sy report released Monday that listed his death as a sui cide. The state crime lab report said the muzzle of a handgun that Chavis Carter appar ently concealed from arrest ing officers was placed against his right temple when it was fired. The report, signed by three medical examiners, included a drug analysis showing Carter's urine and blood indicated methamphetamine and other drug use. The report released to The Associated Press and other news organizations under a Freedom of Information Act request, said Carter's blood also tested positive for at least trace amounts of the anti-anxiety medication diazepam and the painkiller oxycodone. His urine test also returned a positive result for marijuana. The report said Carter's death was ruled a suicide based on autopsy findings and investigative conclusions from the Jonesboro Police Department, which has faced questions from Carter's family and community mem bers about the circumstances surrounding the July 28 CHAVIS CARTER shooting. He was cuffed and placed into a police car, where apparently he produced a weapon, and despite being handcuffed shot himself in the head, the report said. Irwin, a Memphis, Tenn., lawyer representing Carter's family, declined to comment on the specifics of the toxicology report, calling instead for police to release details of an y gunpowder residue or other such tests. "If those tests were taken ... what were the results?" Irwin asked. On Monday night dozens of Carter family supporters gathered outside the National Civil Rights Museum in Memphis Tenn., for a candlelight vigil. Carter's mother, Teresa Carter, wiped her eyes as people spoke about her late son "My heart is so heavy," she sai d
