Myers. Friday, September 28, 2012 was her last day of work; she's retiring. But then, she was saddened to leave the people she has worked with for the last 21 years. Ms. Myers began her career with the United States Pre-Trial Services Agency on June 3, 1991. She was the first Black Pre-Trial Services Officer hired in the Tampa Division. A retirement celebration was held for her last Friday in the Federal Building. Several U. S. and Magistrate Judges, Federal Public Defenders, U.S. Deputy Marshals, Department of Corrections Officers and various law en forcement officers, treatment vendor providers, family and friends attended the event. Among those who congratulated her on this milestone were: from left, Shelia Jacoby, Chief Pre-Trial Services Officer; Judge Thomas McCoun, Judge Mary Scriven, Cynthia Myers (retiree) and Judge Charles Wilson.

On Wednesday, the Hills borough County Medical Ex aminer s Office ruled that Mrs. Belcher's death was the re s ult of homicidal vio lence. The Hillsborough County Sheriffs Office is c on tinuing its in v estigation. According to the Hillsbor ough Coun ty Sheriffs Office Mrs. Belcher was r e ported missing b y famil y members on Sunday, September 16th around 4:30 p.m. During the course of the interviews they learned that on the night of September 15, her husband, Christopher Keith Belcher, 43, had gone .to a birthday party. When Belcher returned home, he and Mrs. Belcher became engaged in a verbal con frontatj.on that turned physical. About two hours after re ceiving the missing person's report, police said other deputies responded to Taylor Road and Pruett Road in re f erence to a burned v ehicle.

"He was being held on a misdemeanor and after the case was reviewed, it was de termined that based on a lack of evidence, we didn't have enough to substantiate the case. However the death of his wife is still a very active in vestigation." Belcher was released on Tuesday.

I: According to the Supervisor of Elections Office, as long LL as a corrections inmate has not been convicted of a felony or C had their rights taken away, he or she can still register to Z vote and can cast his or her ballot like any other rightful reminded observers of a voter's rendition of Dodge City W where, thanks to under-the-table vote-rigging and bald faced bamboozling, state and national political outcomes :I: could be up for the highest bidder. en So, we share this newfound information to eager eyes. Let's say, you've been arrested and even incarcerated, but :::::1 you haven't been tried for a felony. Regardless of whether D.. your new address is Orient Road, or Falkenburg Road, you Z still are eligible to receive either the right to register to vote i= by October 9th, or are eligible to get an absentee ba:llot. How ever, the catch is YOU HAVE TO MAKE THE REQUEST. Use ..J a prison phone or write a letter. Either that, or get the assis tance of a relative or loved one in making the necessary con ..J nections. W No, the process is not entirely easy. But given what's at Z stake, the result is overwhelmingly important. Jail inmate !z as yet, uncharged, YOUR COUNTRY NEEDS YOU! w en Florida Republican g Karma And Deia vu T a:lking about "Deja vu" (experiencing the same thing twice), many conservative Republicans are suffering from that illness after recently discovering that .the same firm they hired to register voters for the GOP in 2004 has once again come under scrutiny for fraudulent voter registration. No doubt, certain Democrats and countless Independents are thinking, "Karma: what goes around comes around." After so many Republican-related voting irregularities surrounding Presidential elections, the State of Florida my go down in mstory as the "voter fraud capital of America." Beginning with the 1.877 election between Rutherford B. Hayes and Samuel J. Tilden, Florida has had an unusual number of voting goofs and gaffs especia:lly during the 21.st century (2ooo, 2004, 2006, 2008, and 201.2). Since Republicans hired the same firm they knew had been accused of not turning in Democrat voter registrations forms; of misleading college students into registering as Republicans, and of refusing to register Democrats or Independents n 2004, Republicans will find it difficult to convince most thinking folks as to why GOP'ers are not now getting their "just-desserts."

Romney remained true to States Rights and a voucher system, while the President stressed progress for a strong middle class, Medicare, Medicaid, training and job advancement to enrich the lives of all the American peo ple.

Ms. Ann Porter said, "I listen to the debate between the President and Mitt Romney. I must admit that after running for President Atty. Clinton Paris said, "Surprisingly, President Obama was passive, flat, unemotional, and stayed on the defensive. He did not debate with the confidence and zest of an incumbent can didate in a very close race. Obama focuses on educating the American people, by stressing why Mitt Romney is not a good candidate for the Presidency. One of them being Medicare changes that will affect so many people's lives with age of 54 and 55. Both of them had their difference on the economy, Romney stated he likes Big Bird, but he will get rid of PBS. Mitt Romney spent the night on the defense, on the same bad ideas that crashed the economy. for more than six years and debate prep for eight weeks, Mitt Romney came prepared.

Mitt Romney has a "Top Secret" agenda for us. "If your name is "Mitt," you cannot be "Fit", ... to run this country, that is!" Ms. Pat Spencer said, "As I watched and listened to the debate, I had several thoughts. First, Mitt Romney was primed to continue telling untruths about how, if elect ed, he will lead us into more difficult times. Second, he was disrespectful of the Moderator and pro ceeded to take over the debate, even sharing that the funding for PBS will be cut if he is elected. Third, he backed down on things he has been saying throughout the Election, by agreeing with what President Obama was saying, or quickly stated "I did not say that." "President Obama was a gentleman, and did not get in Romney's face. This is what he has to do at the next debate. Romney said that his Health Plan will protect citizens who have existing illnesses, however, shortly after the debate, one of his top advisers stated that his plan will not cover persons in this position "There were many untruths he shared last night, so that he could continue trying to reach the undecided voter. We must read and share with others the true facts because from Mitt Romney, they did not come out last night. Most of all, we must make sure all of our family and friends are registered by October 9th and do Early Voting." Jet Set Hudson said, "I feel that Mitt Romney didn't have the facts and he wouldn't give any details to any of the questions President L.;;;L.-L-.li....J Obama asked. Romney is secretive and he doesn't want to answer questions. He was like a pit bull, he just kept attacking, with no substance and no proof of his accusa tions. America doesn't need a pit bull as the Commander in Chief. If President Obama had acted like that, the news reporters would have torn him apart. "Romney is a billionaire, he doesn't care about the poor, and he is definitely not trying to help the poor. But, you can't fool the people all of the time. We need to get to the polls and take someone else with us to vote." Dr. Samuel Wright, Sr., said, "The debate was quite interesting in that President Barack Obama was quite presidential and non-combative. I believe he employed this strategy to remain calm and to exude no anger "On the other hand, Mitt Romney was somewhat rambunctious and overly aggressive. He rambled on and on without being direct in answering some of his questions. Stay tune for Debate 2!" Keto Hodges Nord said, You can tell a lot about a person's character by their debating style. Someone who will look you in the eye and lie to you when millions of people are watching and swear they never said anything that has ever been reported and documented in the news is intel lectually dishonest and does it because he thinks he will get over on you, and after all, what are YOU going to do about it? "In sum, that person lies, obfuscates, and projects because he don't respect you and thinks you are. dumb enough that you can't remember the things he said out of his own mouth. (Unfortunately, most Americans do not bother to educate themselves on poli tics) That is despicable and such a person does not deserve your attention much less your vote because he don't respect you anyway. This is my opinion of Romney's debate 'win."' Atty. Roderick Ford said, "Pundits and Polls say that Gov. Romney "won" the First Debate. However, President Obama's debate style real ly maintained the "dignity of the Office of President." Ms. Evangeline Best said, "I listened to the debate and I connected and trust President Obama. I come from hum ble beginnings in Belmont Heights. Those of us who have lived in this community back in the 1960s recall who we are because of our praying and devotion to family, church, and our neighborhoods. "President Obama has shown in the past four years that he is for us," (the middle class, seniors, disabled, veter ans, and disabled and many others), and the 47% of "us" according to, the U. S Constitution. are to be repre sented. "We have to make sure that our families, friends and oth ers we meet are registered to vote."

Presidential News "TT :!! c Gov. O'Mallev Defends President Obama's Debate Performance !< 0 0 While the vast majority of pundits scored Wednesday night's presidential debate in favor of Mitt Romney, Mary land Gov. Martin O'Malley gamely defended President Barack Obama's perform ance during a string of media interviews that stretched into Thursday morning. In an early morning appear ance on CNN from Denver, the site of the debate, O'Malley (D) knocked the Republican challenger for putting forward no new ideas on creating jobs and declining to detail how he would pay for his tax plans. "He tells us we can all eat cake and lose weight, 'Trust me, I've got a secret plan be hind door No.2, said O'Mal ley, the chairman of the Democratic Governors AssociWall Street Predicts An Obama Victorv Wall Street analysts have publicly declared their predic tion for the 2012 presidential election, and it looks like President Barack Obama is set to win. This prediction is worth its weight because firms hire an alysts to pay close attention to the race and monitor the eco nomic implications of the election outcome. Party strategists and re porters aren't the only ones who get paid to evaluate the presidential landscape firms routinely hire analysts or "political intelligence" firms to predict election out comes or, more importantly, game out legislative scenarios on Capitol Hill. While partisans may have the luxury of optimism as to whether their candidate might prevail, investors need to keep a clear head if they want to predict whether the health care companies will be trans formed by Romney repealing Obamacare or the defense industry pinched by the up coming sequester. The finance world has been foreseeing a Pres. Obama victory for some time now. "Pres. Obama has led in the polls all year," Tina Fordham, Citi's senior polit ical analyst. "And history sug gests that incumbent presidents who maintain their lead go on to be re-elected." She also said there is a re duced risk for an 'October Surprise' that would change the election's outcome be cause "the two main external threats to the U.S. economyand thereby Pres. Obama's re-election have receded." The Magic Number: POlUS Within Reach 01 210 Electoral Votes DES MOINES, Iowa Five weeks to Election Day, President Barack Obama is within reach of the 270 elec toral votes needed to win a second term. Republican Mitt Romney's path to victory is narrowing. To overtake Pres. Obama, Romney would need to quickly gain the upper hand in nearly all of the nine states where he and Pres. Obama are competing the hardest. Polls show the president with a steady lead in many of them as Romney looks to shift the dynamics of the race, starting with their first debate Wednesday in Denver. "We'd rather be us than them," says Jennifer Psaki, an Pres. Obama spokeswoman. If the election were held today, an analysis shows Pres. Obama would win at least 271 electoral votes, with likely victories in crucial Ohio and Iowa along with 19 other states and the District of Co lumbia. Romney would win 23 states for a total of 206. ation. "That's going to wear old with intelligent voters over the course of these next debates." In the middle of O'Malley's appearance, viewers were shown a recorded, less charita ble assessment of Pres. Obama's first debate per Jormance by James Carville, the longtime Democratic strategist, who said Romney looked like he wanted to be there while Pres. Obama did not. "The president didn't bring his 'A' game," Carville said. Asked about that comment, O'Malley replied: "This was the first day that was not a disa astrous and miserable day for OJ the Romney campaign in m many, many weeks." :::D O'Malley, who won re-elec91 tion in 2010, added: "I've been ..... in these debates, and always it N seems the challenger has an edge in that very first debate."

r res. Obama News Pres. Obama: That wasn't 'The Real' Min Romnev A more aggressive President Obama followed up last night's debate today by saying that viewers did not see "the real' Mitt Romney. The Romney at Wednes day's debate refused to own up to the impact of his pro posed tax cuts for the wealthy, education cuts, and past sympathy for outsourc ing, Pres. Obama told some 12,000 backers at a park in Denver. "The man on stage last night, he does not want to be held accountable for the real Mitt Romney's decisions and what he s been saying for the last year," Pres. Obama said. "And that's because he knows full well that we don't want what he s been selling for the last year. Pres. Obama also mocked Romney for advo cating cuts to public broad casting, even though he likes the "Big Bird character. Thank goodness some body is finally getting tough on Big Bird!" Pres. Obama said, "We didn't know that Big Bird was driving the fed eral deficit At the prompting of a member of the crowd, Pres. Obama added: "Elmo too?" During the debate, Rom ney listed PBS as part of a se ries of programs he would cut PRES. BARACK OBAMA to help reduce the federal debt, a list that includes Pres. Obama's health care law and programs that can be shifted to state and local gov ernments. Romney aides said it was the real Romney who ap peared on stage Wednesday night. not the caricature painted by Pres. Obama and his campaign in recent months. Poll respondents gave Romney a victory over the president at the debate, and GOP aides said the pres ident and his team are trying to recover. Pres. Obama, criticized by even some Democrats as passive and listless during the debate, turned aggressive in his first post-debate speech. "When I got onto the stage, Tuesday, October 9, 2012 at 7pm with Pastor Laytecia Mckinney Victory Temple Outreach Ministries, Inc at First John M.B. Church 3412 E. 7th Avenue Tampa, Florida 33605 I met this very spirited fellow who claimed to be Mitt Romney," Pres. Obama said in beginning his speech at Sloan s Lake Park in Den ver. But it couldn t have been Mitt Romney because the real Mitt Romney has been running around the country for the last year promising $5 trillion in tax cuts that favor the wealthy," he added. The fellow on stage last night said, he didn't know anything about that." He maintained the "real Romney" riff on other is sues: "The real Mitt Romney said we don't need anymore teachers in our classrooms, but ... the fellow on stage last night, he loves teachers, can't get enough of 'em. "The Mitt Romney we all know invested in companies that were called pioneers of outsourcing jobs to other countries. But the guy on stage last night, he said that he doesn t even know that there are such laws that en courage outsourcing. ... He said that if it's true he must need a new accountant.

The Bible is full of the experiences of the founders of the Christian church throughout the world. If the modern day believers read, understood, and ap plied these life lessons, life would be much easier. Acts 6:8-15; 7:1, 1a, 22, 44a, 45b-49, which serves as this week's lesson tells the story of how Stephen de fended his belief and faith. Stephen's experience pro vides insight and warning to the church as to why there is a need to defend the faith. There will always be some who do not know or under-stand why you do some of the things you do. Verse eight says that Stephen was full of faith and power and did great wonders and mira cles among the people. He was "full of faith and power." Being full of faith and power allowed him to "do great wonders and mira cles. If you want to do great things for the kingdom among the people, you must be full of faith anP. power. While doing these works it is important to remember that it is not you who are doing, but Him who gives you the strength and power. While He was doing these great works there were some ST.

When God uses you to do great and miraculous works people from within the church may rise against you. Those who you would expect to be receptive and apprecia tive of the work you do might be the ones who come against you. To make matters worse they will get other people to speak falsely against you to hinder your work (v. 11). Do not think it strange when your enemy tries to find peo ple to side with them to de stroy or weaken your work. They stirred up the people against Stephen (vs. 12). Some people in the church get stirred up be cause they listen to other people. There are some farmers in the church who specialize in sowing weeds. REV. WALTa& J.

In the midst of all the stuff you have to contend with in your endeavor to the work you have been called to do, you must remember these words of hope and encour agement: "And they were not able to resist the wisdom and the spirit by which he spake," (vs. 10).

October Is Breast Cancer Awareness Month Know Bener, Choose Bener: 9 Things About Mammograms The facts are clear Breast cancer is the most common cancer among African-Ameri can women. Let's calm your worries. Here are 9 things y ou should know about mammograms. 1. The Definition. A mammogram is a picture of the inside of the breast. There are two type s of mammogram s available to pa tients : a screening mammogram and a diag nostic mammogram. 2. How a Screening Mammogram Works. Screening mammograms usually in volve two sets of images of each breast. The images can detect tumors not felt during your self-exam, and also finds micro-calcifications (tiny deposits of calcium) that could indicate the presence of breast cancer. Screening mammograms are done with routine checkups, 1mean ing you don't need to discover an ab normality first be fore receiving one. 3 How a Diagnostic Mam mogram Works. Diagnos tic mammograms take longer than screening mam mograms because more images are taken to obtain views of the breast from different angles. Usu ally, the patient is no longer seeking precau tionary measures, but looking to know more about a lump, sign, or symptom t}lat already has been found. Signs of breast cancer may in clude pain, skin thickening, nipple discharge, and a change in breast size or shape. However, these signs also can be non-can cerous, and diagnostic mammograms can help doctors make accurate diagnoses. 4 The Good Side of Screening Mam mograms. Early detection of breast cancer means that treatment can start earlier, and possibly before the disease has spread. Studies have proven that screening mammography can help reduce the numbers of deaths from breast cancer among women ages 40 to 74, and especially those over age so. However, studies have not proven that there is a benefit from regular screening mam mography in women under age forty 5 The Bad Side of Screening Mammograms. Fast-growing or aggressive can cers may have already spread to other parts of the body, regardless of whether or not a screening mammogram has been taken. There's also the possibility of false-negative results -when mammograms appear normal even though breast cancer is present. Screen ing mammograms miss up to 20 percent of breast cancers present at the time of screen ing, mainly due to dense and fatty breasts. Younger women are more likely to have denser breasts. False-positive results also have occurred when radiologists conclude that the mammo gram is abnormal but no cancer is actually present. Again, this is more common in younger women. All abnormal mammograms should be followed up with addit ional testing: diagnostic mammograms, ultrasound, and/ or biopsy. There's also the risk of radiation ex posure as with all radiology. And repeated xrays and radiology exams have the potential to cause cancer The radiation exposure of re s ulting from mammograms is very low thus the benefits tend to outweigh the risk. 6. The Best Age to Begin Screening Mammograms. Women age 40 and older should receive screening mammograms every 1 to 2 years. But women who have a personal or family history of breast cancer should talk with their health care providers and decide whether or not to have mammograms before the age of 40 and if so, how often. 7 How Much Do Mammograms Cost? Unfortunately the cost of screening mammograms varies by state facil ity, and insurance coverage. Thank fully most states have laws that re quire health insur ance companies to reimburse all or part of the cost of screening mammo grams. If you re in sured, contact your insurance company and mammography facility for information about cost and cover age. Women over the age of 40 with Medicare can get a free screening mammogram each year, and Medicare will pay for one baseline mammogram for female beneficiaries be tween the ages of 35 and 39. Uninsured women can get free or low-cost mammograms through calling the National Cancer Institute's Cancer Information Service at 1-800-232-4636. 8. Where Can You Get a High-Quality Mammogram? Women can get high-quality mammograms at breast clinics, hospital radi ology departments, private radiology offices, and doctors' offices. Find a facility using the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website. 9 Know Your Legal Protections. The Mammography Quality Standards Act (MQSA) is a Federal law designed to ensure that mammography is safe and reliable. In the United States, the Food and Drug Administra tion (FDA) or an FDA-approved Certifying State must certify all mammography facilities. The facility must have mammography equipment that is tested periodically, employ trained personnel to administer tests and in terpret data, and have a quality assurance pro gram. They also must have a system for following up on abnormal mammographic findings and obtaining biopsy results. Ask your doctor or staff at the local mammography facilitY about FDA certification before making an appoint ment. All facilities are required to display their FDA certificate. Women should look for the certificate and check for its expiration date.

How Should You Store Your Insulin and other injectable medica tions can lose po tency if they're not properly stored. Here are some storage guidelines: Vials and pens that you are currently using can be stored at room temperature This is a good thing, since injecting in sulin when it's cold can make the injection more painful or cause a local irritation around the site. Insulin that you've not yet opened-should be refriger ated at a temperature between 36 degrees F and 46 degrees F If insulin ever gets frozen, throw it out, since it loses its potency. : Once opened, in sulin expires any where from 14-28 days, depending on the type of insulin. Most opened vials of insulin can be stored at room temp for 28 days. Insulin pens ana other injectable medica tions can be stored, once opened, at room temperature for anywhere from 14-28 days, depending on the type of in sulin. Always check the expira tion date on your insulin's bo x or vial. Do not use that batch of insulin if it's past that date.

Surprise 60th Binhdav Celebration Held For Winter Haven Businessman For months, Belinda Byrd had strategically and secretly planned a surprise 6oth birthday celebration in honor of her husband, Elder Lorenzo Byrd. On the evening of July 21, 2012, family and friends gathered at the Wilfred B. Smith Community Center in Winter Haven for what they thought would be a 'surprise' for Elder Byrd. However, on that very evening, during his remarks of 'love, thanks and appreciation', the Winter Haven businessman disclosed a surprise of his own! He shared that some time prior to the occasion, he had missed a cellphone call from Belinda. Unfortunately, when she hung up, without leaving a message, her Smartphone didn't hang-up. This result ed in a voice mail recording of a conversation that Belinda had with one of Elder Lorenzo Byrd with, from left to right: his wife, Belinda, (center) and sisters-in-law Toynetta Cobb, Oeft) and Tonya Akins (right). Deacori and Mrs. David Riley enjoyed the evening of fun and fellowship. the persons who were assisting her to coordinate the celebration. Thus, when Elder Byrd listened to his messages, he found out about the 'surprise'! Belinda laughed along with the other guests, as he shared the story. The celebration was beautiful; one that Elder Lorenzo Byrd has stored in his memory bank of special family occasions. (Photos by Shaw-NuJ) Octavia Smith, the goddaughter of the birthday celebrant, shared birthday expressions in a poem. Minister Johnnie Crawford, brother-in-law of the birthday celebrant, shared words of encouragement.

Pythias Brown says that a culture of indifference lead to a widespread culture of stealing ,everything in sight. Brown is speaking for the first time after being released from prison for stealing on the job. His fouryear stealing spree came to an end when he tried to sell a camera he stole from the luggage of a CNN producer on E-bay. He forgot to take off the network s identifying tags and markers. "It became so easy, I got complacent," Brown admit ted. He says that he learned to read the X-Ray scanners to determine which items were best to steal. Brown says even the TSA locks sold for luggage could not deter him because he and his colleagues eventually learned how to pick them. During the time o( his arrest, the ex-TSA agent was selling some 8o video games and computers on eBay. Brown is one of almost 400 TSA officers who have been given pink slips for stealing in the past decade. TSA reports that 381 officers have been canned for theft between 2003 and 2012, including 11 so far in this year. PERSONAL INJURY & AUTO ACCIDENTS Ill I co ,.... w (.!)

On the evening of July 21, 2012, family and friends gathered at the Wilfred B. Smith Community Center in Winter Haven for what they thought would be a 'surprise' for Elder Byrd. However, on that very evening, during his remarks of 'love, thanks and appreciation', the Winter Haven businessman disclosed a surprise of his own! He shared that some time prior to the occasion, he had missed a cellphone call from Belinda. Unfortunately when she hung up, without leaving a message, her Smartphone didn't hang-up. This result ed in a voice mail recording of a conversation that Belinda had with one of Elder Lorenzo Byrd with, from left to right: his wife, Belinda, (center) and sisters-in-law Toynetta Cobb, (left) and Tonya Akins (right). the persons who were assisting her to coordinate the celebration. Thus, when Elder Byrd listened to his messages, he found out about the 'surprise'! Belinda laughed along with the other guests, as he shared the story. The celebration was beautiful; one that Elder Lorenzo Byrd has stored in his memory bank of special family occasions. (Photos by Shaw-Nu.f) Octavia Smith, the goddaughter of the birthday celebrant, shared birthday expressions in a poem. :a c 0 0 a m m :a U1 1\) 0 ..... 1\) "'D c m r u; :::1: m c m < m -4 c m en c Minister Johnnie Craw...., Deacon and Mrs. David Riley enjoyed the evening of fun and fellowship. ford, brother-in-law of the !; birthday celebrant, shared c words of encouragement. :a c Birthday celebrant, Elder Lorenzo Byrd is shown with his children and grandchildren.
