East Tampa Excited Over Announcement 01 New StreetliUhls BY LEON B. CREWS Sentinel Staff Writer Black elected officials, and neighborhood associations, have been pleading with the City of Tampa officials for years about the poor lighting on streets in East Tampa neighborhoods. Last year, a poor lit street resulted in the death of a young woman, 27 -y ear-old Monica Alvarez, who was six months pregnant when she was hit from behind by a car as she and a friend pushed baby strollers along a dark section of 43rd Street. Her son, Angel, was delivered prematurely, but lived less than an hour. On Tuesday, October 23ro, Mayor Bob Buckhorn announced an initiative to add 8,400 new streetlights in the city over the next five years as part of a collaboration with TECO. The City plans to spend $2.2 million and increase the number of streetlights by nearly 30% above the current total of 30,000. This announcement was especially pleasing for Essie Sims, Chair of the East Tampa Community Revital ization Partnership. Sims said the new lights will be a win-win situation for them. We hope this will curtail a lot of criminal activity and make our communities safer for residents to walk around in at night. Now, we can redirect Tax Increment Dollars (TIF) to other priorities. We can look at how we ean make our parks more accessible, and put in sidewalks." As part of the new program, the city s transportation division will conduct a annual citywide inventory of streetlights. Lights that are dim will be replaced Tree branches that block lights will be trimmed New lights will be in stalled starting in January, and will be targeted in areas that have higher rates of crime and car crashed as well as in the city s designated community redevelopment areas: East Tampa, Ybor City Tampa Heights, Drew Park, Central Park, the Channel District, and downtown. IR Kicks IH Multi-State Election Bus Tour The American Federation of Teachers (ATF) will kicked off the second leg of its multi-state election bus tour.

It will highlight the on-the-ground organizing, volunteer mobilization, member-to-member communication, and get-out-the-vote efforts. AFT members will continue to engage in the election efforts every day until the election. On the Florida leg ofthe tour, AFT President Randi Weinbarten will be joined by ATF Secretary-Treasurer Lorretta Johnson, local AFT leaders and members. They will meet with community members, union voiunteers and union members. They will also participate in events in support of President Obama, Senator Bill Nelson, and other candidates.

Feature Two Men Accused II Income Tax Refund Fraud Worth Nearlv $2 Million Two bay area men have been charged in connection with tax fraud in separate in vestigations. Both men are being held in the Pinellas County Jail. According to court docu ments, on July 31, 2011, Clearwater Police Depart ment conducted a traffic stop on the vehicle 23-year old Carlos Oscar Johnson was driving. They reportedly found five debit cards believed to be related to tax refund fraud and con tacted an agent with the IRS. The agent launched an investigation and discovered that Johnson and others were allegedly involved in a scheme to defraud the fed eral government. The cards were report edly loaded with tax refunds from five different people. Johnson had allegedly made several purchases on the cards, the court records showed. Some of those pur chases included airplane CARLOS OSCAR JOHNSON tickets and a hotel stay at the Bellagio in Las Vegas, Ne vada. The investigation also re vealed that from about Feb ruary 23, 2012 to October 2, 2012, at least 173 fraudulent tax returns have been filed from Johnson's residence. Johnson is alleged to have filed at least 42 fraudulent tax refunds during two stays at a hotel. The 173 refunds requested were valued at $1.3 million in refund LARRY LEE NORTHERN, JR. amounts. Johnson is ac cused of having filed more than 200 fraudulent tax re turns worth a total of $1.7 million. Johnson was ar rested Friday. In a separate investiga tion, police arrested Larry Lee Northern, Jr., on Oc tober 22d. He is also await ing trial in the Pinellas County Jail. According to court docu ments, Northern, 28, is ac cused of theft from the government and aggravated identity theft. In November 2011, the Florida Highway Patrol arrested Northern after a traffic stop At the time of his arrest, he was charged with possession of marijuana. During the search follow ing the arrest, police found two cell phones, 15 Green Dot prepaid debit cards in several names, and 17 Wal mart MoneyGram gift cards. Police confiscated corpo rate documents that con tained personal information of 32 clients of Optimum Healthcare, Inc. Eight of the cards had the same names listed on the Optimum docu ments. Northern had never been an employee of Opti mum, the court document stated. After being read his rights, Northern reportedly told police that he was not responsible for making the prepaid debit cards, but a fe male asked him if he wanted to make some extra money N by delivering the cards. He refused to provide any addiN tional information. During a search of the ve hicle, police discovered $15,700 in cash and a laptop computer. The 2009 Dodge Chal lenger Northern was driv ing was still in the name of the previous owner. When contacted by police, the seller said Northern had paid him $2o,ooo for the vehicle.

Thanks to a phalanx of political fact-checks, the follow ing is what we've come up with. 1. President Obama served the first 9 months in office under the last budget developed by President Bush. There fore, at least lf4 of that fiscal year's deficit was created be fore President Obama took office. 2. Since President Obama took office, America's debt to China has been reduced over the past three years, and the interest paid to China for the borrowed money has decreased since 2008. All of the debt created by u. s. wars in Iraq and in Mghanistan was initiated by George W. Bush, whom the Republicans never openly criticized for owing money to China. 3 At least $8oo billion (nearly a trillion dollars) of the present deficit is due to the stimulus program to avoid an economic depression and the collapse of our economy (saving the banking and auto industries and to save the jobs of first responders, i.e. police and firefighters) and teachers. 4 U. S. tax revenues dropped during the 2007-2009 re cession and are even lower since then (a loss of $24 trillion by end of 2012). 5 The unemployment rates in Ohio and Florida are lower (more than 3% lower). Therefore, we ask but one favor. Think before you vote. Our Presldell StoPS 11 lriSPJ lnlme e bought three dozen doughnuts for firefighters up the street, bought several tasty treats for a customer and his children, greeted people in the store whether they might vote for him or not, and for all to see, unleashed his blinding smile. And that's what people who just happened to be behind the counter or in front of the counter at Krispy Kreme Doughnut Shop on Kennedy Boulevard will talk about for the rest of their lives: the day that they stood close enough to smell Barack.Obama's cologne. And how does one act when the President comes to town? What does one say when he or she gets caught up in a presidential motorcade that seems to stretch for miles and last for hours? In case you didn't know, the most pow erful man on the face of the earth visited Tampa, the other day. It was by no means, the first time he'd come. For, as presidential candidate both he and his enchanting wife pumped flesh of would-be-voters throughout our city. And at the end of the campaign season, having come to Tampa had paid off. For, Barack Obama became America's newest Commander--In-Chief. But this time, things were different. Tall, regally thin Black man stepped out of his long black limousine, bounded into Krispy Kreme, and captured the hearts, minds, and, maybe, even the votes of everyone in the place. Most likely, few remembered if he was Black, white, or green. But by far, they did recall what.kind of doughnut he consumed. John F. Kennedy visited Tampa. Bill Clinton came to Tampa, too. And so did Barack Obama. And what did all three have in common? Youthfulness is what they shared, not simply the youthfulness of an individual, but the boundlessness of a youthful, optimistic nation. Beyond the w boredom of countless debates, our President came to CJ Tampa. He ate a glazed doughnut. Ancl the rest was his tory. Sometimes, the longer you live, the more you discover events and contributions by Blacks who you never knew and neither American History nor Black History classes ever covered. So, it is with my ex posure to a World War Two battle and event involving Black soldiers and heroes that I had never heard of before. In all of our Veterans Day, Memorial Day, Red Ball Ex press, Tuskegee Airmen, and 761 t Tank Battalion celebra tions, no one ever mentioned the names of William Ed ward Pritchett (Alabama), James A. Stewart (West Virginia), Mager Bradley (Mississippi), Due W. Turner (Arkansas), Curtis Adams (South Carolina), Thomas J. Forte (Mess Ser geant), James Leather wood (Mississippi), Robert Green and Nathaniel Moss. Perhaps, Blacks from the states of Mississippi, Ala bama, West Virginia, Arkansas, and South Carolina had heard of these men. How ever, I doubt it, since no mon ument or buildings bear any of their names. I'm talking about eleven Black soldiers who were part of the segregated 333rd Field Artillery Battalion (FAB), a 155 mm Howitzer unit that landed in Normandy and was involved .in the Battle of the Bulge. The 333n1 participated in the assault at Utah Beach on June 29, 1944. Later that year, the unit was located near St. Vith, Bel gium in the village of Schoen berg On December 16, 1944, German artillery began shelling the Schonberg area where the 333rd units were separated by the Our River (service battery was west of the river while the firing bat teries [A, B, and C] were on the east side of the river:) sup porting the Army VII Corps and especially the 106th In fantry Division. As the Germans advanced towards Schoenberg, the 333nl F AB was ordered to move fur ther west while the C Bat tery and Service Battery were requested to remain in posi tion to support the 14th Cav alry and to6th Division. These units were soon overrun by the Germans with most of the men being killed or captured. Unfortunately, eleven sol diers, carrying only two rifles between them, became sepaThe eleven soldiers were taken to the edge of a field on the Langer property, tor tured, dismembered shot, and left in a ditch to be cov ered by heavy snow. When Allied soldiers retook the town of Wereth, two months later the soldiers' re mains were recovered. On their property, the Langer family erected a cross with the names of the eleven soldiers as a small memorial to the soldiers, and in 1994, one of Langer's sons erected a monument on the site. In 2001, Belgians organ ized a permanent monument to honor the Wereth Eleven and all Black soldiers involved in WWII. However, not until August 20, 2006 was a monument dedicated in America to the Wereth Eleven when veterans with the Worcester, Massa chusetts chapter of Veterans of the Battle of the Bulge at the Winchendon Veterans Memorial Cemetery. Now that we all know about the Wereth Eleven, they will no longer be invisible, and we will honor and celebrate them all year long. May we continue to pray for all our fallen he roes. Harambee.

Real Daddies Needed Earlier this year my oldest son became a father. The first piece of advice I gave him fol lowing my congratulations was, "marry the mother. I told him not to make the same mistakes his grandfather and I made. If he loved his son, he would be there for him on a day-to-day basis be cause raising kids from a dis tance just doesn't work. There was a time when I imagined giving this kind of instruction wasn t necessary. Children usually came after the cutting of the wedding cake. But, times have changed. And the idea of two people conceiving out of wed lock has been trending for quite a minute now. What has been lost in the process is the overall benefits children receive from having their fathers actually living under the same roof. When I think about all of the friends I had as a child, it seems as though the ones who came from two-parent households had more success later in life than those of us who never knew where to send our Fa ther's Day cards. Granted, in some in stances, uncles and stepfa thers pick up the slack. But even with the contribution from these valuable father figures, there is always some thing missing when the real deal isn't around. Some people like to point to things like gang violence, drugs and poverty as the biggest problems facing the Black community. But to me, they re only symptoms of a much larger issue. Absentee fatherism." That is where the cancer begins. The person who com mits crime, uses or sells dope or hasn' t learned how to man-age money properly is probably the same person who never had t h e one voice that they would listen to over all others, giving them the guidance they needed. Don t get me wrong, I'm not trying to give people an excuse for failing by pulling the "my daddy wasn't there card. But there is little deny ing the influence men can have on their children when they play an active role in their lives. As I look back at my own life, I realize that it took me 40 years to learn certain things about manhood that I should have known 25 years ago. I don't blame my father for deciding to live his own life. We are all programmed to seek out what gives us true happiness. But, to be honest, sometimes I wonder how much more I would have ac complished if I hadn't been forced to spend so much time learning through trial and error. This is why I often men tion how much I admire men like Richard Williams (father of Venus and Serena) and Earl Woods (father of Tiger). These are men who dedicated their lives to ensur ing that their offspring would reach their full potential. And the accomplishments of their children proves how much total commitment pays off in the end. Making a life? That is the easy part. Being there to grqom that life into becoming the best it can be requires a tremendous amount of work and sacrifice. And like any important task that calls for enormous effort, if you're not up to doing the heavy lifting, you may not want to take on the job in the first place.

Prevention & Educat ion Extractions Crowns & Bridges Dentures Partials Root Canal Therapy Repair & Relines *Gold Crown (Real) Available "Patient Relaxation lener 11 Sup_port For Florida 0 Supreme Court Justices a aJ Dear Readers of the Florida Sentinel Bulletin: We Floridians are in immediate danger of losing the last and most important safeguard that the individual citizen has against the overwhelming power of government, special interest money, and political machineryour independent and nonpartisan State Supreme Court. Most Florida residents are unaware that on the November 6th ballot is an absolutely critical vote on the issue of merit retention as it relates to three of O\lr sitting Florida Supreme Court justices. Merit retention was implemented in the 1970's, after a huge scandal and public outcry about abuses that had occurred in the state courts by judges who were bribed and influenced by politicians and the money that finances them. To combat the political money machine, Florida voters approved a constitutional amendment requiring the adoption of a merit retention system for all appellate judges. Every six years Florida appeals court judges and Supreme Court justices are placed on the voting ballot in nonpartisan elections that give voters a chance to oust judges who have somehow violated the judicial code of being impartial or who have become incompetent or unethical. The sole purpose of the merit retention system is to ensure citizens that we have a vehicle in place to preserve the integrity of our system of laws and our Democratic values. Merit retention was NEVER intended and is NOT supposed to be a referendum on whether or not the politicians, insUr ance companies or big businesses agree with a particular judge's decisions. So long as that judge is fair and impartial, he or she is serving in all of our best interests without being beholden to any particular cause or political or financial special interest group. There is no room in our system of justice for the members of the judiciary to have to consider the political ramifications of their judicial rulings. To permit this would be inimical to the integrity of our justice system and ultimately destroy and sab-otage its independence and the protection for each of us as citizens of this state and this country. This is your system as well as mine, and I -ask you to do what is necessary to preserve and protect it. This year, three Supreme Court justices: Justice Pariente, Justice Quince, and Justice Lewis, are up for the standard "merit retention" vote and have come under vicious attack from Governor Rick Scott and his political money machirie. Scott sees this vote as an opportunity to stack the high Court with "special" judges of his own choosing who Scott and his politicos can expect to vote their way on social and legal issues. Scott has recently unleashed an unprecedented series of attacks on the three justices to try and oust them from the judicial system under the pretext of merit retention. This is an absolute perversion of the merit retention process and cannot be allowed, no matter what your individual political beliefs. Our courts MUST be allowed to remain impartial and the only duty that any judge should owe is to the Constitution. Vote YES to retain all three justices so they will remain in office. Each of the challenged justices: Justice Pariente, Justice Quince, and Justice Lewis, are experienced, respected jurists who vote independently on the cases that come before them and are not dependent on the favor of any one politician or political party. The outcome of a case is a rule oflaw, it is not decided based on personal opinion or whether any one of us likes a particular ruling or not -it is the law based on our Constitution, and the application and protection of the Constitution to .all citizens; this will all change in the foreseeable future if Governor Scott has his way on Nov. 6th. If successful, the three embattled justices will be removed and Rick Scott will be given the right to appoint three new justices of his very own choosing, which will allow him to pack the Court with judges who support Scott's political agenda without regard for the impartial rule of law. m If successful in the Supreme Court, Scott's p next targets will no doubt be the appellate 'and cir.... cuit court judges on the N local level, with whom the Governor and his cronies also do not agree. Legislation is further trying to politicize the judiciary by proposing a change to Amendment 5 on the ballot. The summary is purposefully confusing and long, but simply put, the proposed amendment would allow the state Senate the power to confirm or deny future justices to the Florida Supreme Court, taking away the current process that is designed to reduce partisan political influence in the judi-cial selection. "T1 Rather than the curb rent two-thirds vote, the :!! newly proposed AmendC ment 5 would allow the Legislature to repeal m court rules by a simple majority. There is a good z reason the state Constitu-m r tion gives the Florida aJ Supreme Court the power c: to make rules on the merr.rits of justice -they are the !!1 most familiar with court-z related issues. "'0 The merit retention C: vote is our last and only chance to safeguard our u; court system and protect ::1: ourselves from every 2J politician and special in-m terest group who thinks he or she can buy the courts if they spend enough money to protect 2 their business interest. m t/) Let's work together to kill c the spirit of those who seek to own it. > Vote "YES" to retain z each of the three justices C and "NO" to Amendment 5 on the upcoming elec-c tion ballot.

Fads Investigate Phonv Leners warning Florida Voters Thetre llot Eligible To Vote The FBI and U. S. Postal Service inspectors are investigating bogus official-looking letters sent to voters in at least 28 Florida counties questioning their citizenship and their eligibility to vote. David Couvertier, a spokesman for the FBI in Tampa, said his office opened up an investigation into the possible attempt at voter intimidation on Wednesday after receiving reports that eligible voters throughout the state have received the letters "We're taking it as a seri ous situation," he said. "We're looking at everything from civil rights violations to election fraud -to everything in between." Chris Cate, a spokesman for the Florida Secretary of State's Office, said, "We believe these letters appear to meet the standard of voter intimidation." Between so and 100 such letters have been reported to state officials so far, ";;md those are only the ones we know about. We're encouraging peop"le to come forward." The fake letters, which first started showing up last Friday have been sent under the names of real Florida county election supervisors with some correct contact information informing the voters that the supervisors have received "information" about their citizenship status, "bringing into doubt your eligibility as a registered voter."

President Barack Obama came to Tampa to speak at Centennial Park, in Ybor City. Several Tampa residents were on the tarmac to greet President Obama. He spoke and shook hands with U.S. Congresswoman Kathy Castor, Tampa Mayor Bob Buckhorn, Terri Berger, Brad Ward, Fred Torney, Carmen Schumacher, Yemi Ogunsanya, Jimmy Musgrove, Pam Betts, and Jessica Hoyer. After leaving the airport, President Obama made two stops before going to the park, where about 9,000 people were waitin_g to hear him speak. The first was at Krispy Creme Doughnuts, 3113 W. Kennedy Blvd. Although the visit was a surprise to the patrons, Obama had pre-ordered. Letter To The Editor Once inside, he greeted and shook hands with the patrons. His next stop was at Tampa Fire Rescue Station No. 14, 1325 S. Church Avenue. He then gave three dozen dough nuts to nearly two dozen firefighters on duty. He also shook hands with each fire. fighter and expressed grati tude for all that they do. The motorcade left the fire station and headed I-275 and on to Centennial Park, where he arrived ahead of schedule. An Open Lener To President Barack Obama Dear Mr. President: I do not pretend to have a mastery of national lie affairs or of international relations. But as a practicing civil rigbts and labor I do know something of character and of human beings; and, knowing character and human beings, and after having thoroughly read a few of your biographies, together with your handling of public affairs, I cannot escape reaching the inevita:hle conclusion that you are a principled man of high moral character. You took two Ivy League degrees --first from Columbia, and second, from the Harvard Law School --and yet you turned down lucrative careers in law and business in order to fight for the economically disenfranchised underdog. You could have used .frustration and disappointment in order to turn your back on your father's African people and your African blood, and yet you prdudly embrace the African and African American communities, even despite all of their difliculties and short-com ings, and even when many other African Americans said that you not "Black enough." I believe sincerely that you have displayed heroism and courage over the past four years --crippled by two foreign wars and financial turmoll and economic recession from the beginning. In better economic times, I do not believe that you wduld have been elected, because naturally the party of the incumbent has a signifi cant advantage under sueh circumstances. This is true largely because the economy turned for the worse just before the November 2008 Presidential Election. AU of the had to align," in order for your election in 2008; and, as it were, the hand of God moved, and the unthinkable, impossible miracle occurred: America elected its first Black President. For this, the whole nation is worthy of praise and gratitude. I admit that I expected much more negative reaction and retaliation against you than what actually occurred. Under such a difficult set of economic and political cir cumstances, you have performed admirably. I disagree with your detractors on both the left and the right. First, the AmeriCan political system was never designed to provide equal economic opportunity among workers or equality of political influence among voters. You inherited a conservative Democratic Party that had been formed and shaped by powerful interest-group agendas that existed decades before your nomination. Pushing for a national health care law early in your administration was not unwise, because your political capital coming out of the 2008 Presidential Election likely would have been completely eroded had you waited for a more convenient time beyond the 2010 midterm elections; and no health care legislation would have ever been enacted. Your conduct of foreign affairs has been admirable. You have increased America's stature, respect and stand-. ing in the world. While I am not jingoistic, I agree with many Republican viewpoints-about America's standing and strength on the international stage; but I am confident in my assessment that you have significantly improved America,s inter natioilal position. I vehemently disagree with our Republican friends when it comes to their assessment of the national deficit, because your four-year term required immediate government action and government spending in order to bolster a weakened economy fast slipping into another Great Depression. And whlle I have heard your opponent ask, "What is your plan for the next four years?" I have never heard a single Republican advocate say with clarity what a Republican President would have done differently over the last four years. I have not heard a single argument -seen no bar grafts or charts --showing how a Republican administration would have reallocated government dollars and resources differently, thus resulting in a much faster improvement in economic conditions. As a politically independent-minded voter, I have carefully listened to my friends in the Tea Party and in the Republican Party, but, like the Biblical figure Pontius Pilate, I can honestly say, "I find no fault with this man! What evil has he done?" Many Americans thought that we would never see an African American President in our lifetimes. But, you believed in the decency and goodness of the United States of Ainerica, even despite the narrow, sordid views of many other Americans of 'all races, induding myself. Like Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., you have taught us how to believe in and to love ourselves again. Thank you for your leadership and selfless service to our nation. Very Respectfully Yours, RODERICK 0. FORD Civil Rights/Labor Attorney

CREWS Sentinel StaffWriter Denna Day says she gave her life to Christ October 25, 1989, and was baptized. While she served in ministry ofhelps in dance, choir, audio tape intercessory prayer and the leader of a soul winning team, she began to experience competition and sabotage. Mrs. Day has a Theology Degree from Day Spring The ological Seminary in Panama City, Florida and studied Be havioral Psychology with Argosy University in Tampa. She's also completed an Asso ciate of Science course in Business Administration and Management from Gulf Coast Community College "In February 2008, I had the opportunity to partake in a sermon at a local ministry. "For the past 10 years, I have recruited for colleges and universities in the admis sions department and worked in financial aid as well." But, an experience she had caused her to not want to be a part of any ministry, although she knew she had a calling in her life. DENNADAY There were things going on in the ministry I ques tioned, and I was told I was attacking leadership. I was subse quently silenced for a year and not allowed to par ticipate in any help ministries. "I feel God has given me the strength to make this pub lic although people in leader ship are offended. That's when I wrote my book of heal ing, Love One Another, How To Grow Spiritually. Mrs. Day said although she was silenced by the min istry, she couldn't keep run ning from her calling. "I decided to send them a letter saying I forgave them :::0 w and moved on. 9 Since 1989, if there is one N thing I've learned it's that I g needed to be forgiving. N Mrs. Day said her book actuall y was the result of a sermon she pr eached in 2008. I wanted the world to know if we loved one another ; we wouldn t hurt each other. There are a lot of things I put in my book and there are some things I kept to myself, because I didn t want to of fend anyon e." Mrs. Day said she felt pain when she wrote the letter to the ministry, but it had to be done. That's when my deliver ance came, and I didn t feel burdened anymore. I'm sure I'll be writing more books, because there are "T1 so many things I want to say b that haven't been said before. :!;!

a: w m (.) 0 Buccaneers' Eric Wright Faces Suspension For Adderall ERIC WRIGHT The Tampa Bay Buccaneers this month lost cornerback Aqib Talib to a four-game NFL-imposed suspension for Adderall use. He might not be alone. Bucs cornerback Eric c Wright faces a similar ii: four-game ban for using the LL same substance, which vio lates the NFL's policy on' c( performance-enhancing drugs. The NFL has yet to announce an official punishment for Wright, but losing the sixth-year veteran would further weaken Tampa Bay's secondary on a defense that ranks 31st against the pass. We've seen a rash of Adderall-related suspensions this season, and Bucs' owner, Glazer emphasized that some players take the drug to cope with attention deficit disorder. If Wright is lost, cornerbacks Brandon McDonald and Myron Lewis will see increased snaps across from E.J. Biggers, who has stepped in for the exiled Talib. It's a headache this young team could do without. w ::l 1Leuendarv Boxing Trainer Emanuel Steward Dead At&B EMANUEL STEWARD DETROIT Emanuel Steward, the owner of the legendary Kronk Gym and a trainer for boxers including Thomas Hearns, Evander Holyfield and Oscar De La Hoya, died Thursday. Hewas68. Victoria Kirton, Steward's executive assis tant, said Steward died at a Chicago hospital. She did not disclose the cause of death. Steward trained, helped train or managed some of the greatest fighters of the past 40 years out of the Kronk, a dingy, overheated e, basement gym that pro duced world champions like Hearns, Sugar Ray Leonard and Lennox Lewis. Steward, who was inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame, also worked closely with Lewis during his title run, and current heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko as recently as July. Klitschko has trained recently without Steward for his fight against Mariusz Wach next month in Germany. "His spirit is always here," Klitschko said. "I can hear his voice in sparring while doing things, whispering in my ear. As the famous saying goes, 'The show must go on,' and that's exactly the case." Steward also worked since 2001 as a boxing ana lyst for broadcaster HBO. "Manny was a respected colleague who taught us so much not only about the sweet science but also abopt friendship and loyalty," HBO Sports President Ken Hershman said. "His energy, enthusiasm and bright smile were a constant presence. Ten bells do not seem enough to mourn his passing." Pilar Sanllars louslutln DIVorce As Prenup lllreemam Stanlls DEION SANDERS Deion Sanders has ended his marriage to Pilar without having to give her any of his money. The judge ruled that the Sanders prenuptial agreement was valid, though Pilar argued that some parts were forged and that she was pressured to sign the rest. "It's greed. You signed a contract. We had a prenuptial and now you don't like the terms of it, because of the realization it's over. Your lifestyle will no longer be the same way. It's greed," Sanders said. Pilar responded back on Twitter: "Do u even know what GREED Means since u couldn't even define the word IGNORANT." Pilar will reportedly receive $1 million once the divorce is final. Aside from child support which Pilar is accusing Sanders of not paying that will be the last that she will see from him in terms of money. lawrence Tailor Wins Caselver Hotel Sex With Teen LAWRENCE TAYLOR NEW YORK -NFL Hall of Farner Lawrence Taylor has won a lawsuit that tried to hold him accountable for having sex with a 16-year-old girl in a New York hotel roo It}. The jury returned its ver dict Friday after hearing testimony from the now-19year-old woman and Taylor. Taylor gave a thumbs-up to a friend in the spectator area when the verdict was announced.

The woman had claimed that an abusive pimp forced her to have sex with Taylor for $300. She sued Taylo.r, seeking unspecified damages. The encounter occurred in a hotel room in Montebello, just north of New York City. TVrann Mathieu, Three Other For01er LSU Plavers Arrested On Drug Charge BATON ROUGE, La. Former LSU football stand outs Tyrann Mathieu and Jordan Jefferson were among four ex-players arrested Thursday after police found them with marijuana at Mathieu's apartment, police said. Lt. Don Kelly, a Baton Rouge Police spokesman, said officers were called to the apartment complex about 3:30 p.m. after receiv ing a complaint about a man forcing his way through the security gate before going to Mathieu's apartment. "Officers immediately smelled a strong odor of marijuana and obtained consent from Mathieu to search the apartment," Kelly said. Inside they found Jefferson and two other men -Karnell Hatcher and Derrick Bryant as well as a marijuana grinder, digital scale and 10 bags of high-grade marijuana. Kelly said seven of the bags were found inside Bryant's TYRANN MATHIEU bookbag. Mathieu, 20, of New Orleans, and Jefferson, 22, of St. Rose, La., were booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on charges of simple possession of marijuana. Hatcher, 22, of Delray Beach, Fla., was booked with second-offense simple possession of marijuana and Bryant, 22, of Lawrenceville, Ga., was booked with possession with intent to distribute marijuana. Williams Finishe s Oft Year With WTA Title SERENA WILLIAMS ISTANBUL -Her year filled with titles and trophies over, Serena Williams can at last admit it: This was a title she had her eye on. Not that any more evi dence of her all-consuming, powerful game was needed, but Williams gave it any way. She dismissed Maria Sharapova 6-4, 6-3 Sunday to win the WT A Championships for the third time and finish the year with another title, but not the top ranking. "Now that I can be hon est, I really wanted to win, Williams said. "I wanted it so bad, but I didn't want to say it .... It was really impor tant for me to end the year with this title in particular." Williams ended the year with a 59-4 record and seven titles. Since her firstround loss at the French Open, she is 31-1, winning Wimbledon, the Olympic gold medal and the U.S. Open. The 31-year-old Williams became the oldest player to capture the year-end championships. But she will finish the year ranked No. 3, behind No. 1 Victoria Azarenka and No.2 Sharapova, because she did not play as well in the first half of the year. Azarenka lost to Sharapova in the semifi nals. "I had such a good year, it was important to end on a good note," Williams said. "It was good for my sanity to win. I really wanted it although I didn't need it."

Unable to work out an extension with James Harden, the Oklahoma City Thunder traded the Sixth Man of the Year to the Houston Rockets on Saturday night, breaking up the young core of the Western Conference champions. The Thunder acquired guards Kevin Martin and Jeremy Lamb, two firstround picks and a secondround pick in the surprising deal. Oklahoma City also sent center Cole Aldrich and forwards Daequan Cook and Lazar Hayward to Houston. The Oct. 31 deadline to extend Harden or allow him to become a restricted free agent next July had been hanging over the Thunder from the moment they reported to training camp. "We wanted to sign JAMES HARDEN James to an extension, but at the end of the day, these situations have to work for all those involved. Our own. ership group again showed their commitment to the organization with several significant offers," Thunder general manager Sam Presti s aid in a statement. "We were unable to reach a mutual agreement, and therefore executed a trade Tiger's Charge Falls Just Shon In Kuala lUDIPUr TIGER WOODS Tiger Woods closed with a bogey-free, 8-under-par 63 Sunday and tied for fourth in the CIMB Classic at The MINES Resort and Golf Club in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. He finished with a 72-hole score of 19-under 265, three strokes behind winner Nick Watney. "I wanted to get to 20-plus under," said Woods. "That was the goal." Playing in hot, humid con ditions for the fourth-straight day, Woods wasn't sure how much weight he lost, but knows he is lighter than when he started the tournament. "I'm on my last notch on these pants and they're still too big," Woods smiled. Had it not been for a tough finish on Saturday, Tiger would have been in the hunt Sunday afternoon. "The back nine is what cost me a chance to win the tournament," he said. "I hit a bunch of good shots. I just had one bad stretch. Other than that, I played really well." On Monday, Tiger will compete against Rory Mcllroy in a one-day exhibition match at Lake Jinsha International Golf Club in Zhengzhou, China. Woods enters as the second-ranked player in the world, while Mcllroy is ranked No. 1.

The small-market Thunder had already signed Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook and Serge Ibaka to long-term deals, and apparently realized Harden was going to want a bigger salary than they would offer. The Thunder got back a good scorer in Martin, who }_las averaged 18-4 points in his eight NBA seasons, and a promising young player in Lamb, the No. 12 pick in the draft who helped Connecticut win the 2011 NCAA championship. He led Houston's summer league team in scoring with 20 points per game. Maule Johnson sued Bv Former Flight Anendant Fir Wranutul Tenalnadon MAGIC JOHNSON A lawsuit has been filed against NBA Hall of Farner Magic Johnson by his for mer flight attendant on his private plane, Lanita ThomaS. The 45-year-old had been employed by Johnson since 2004 but was recently let go after arriving late to work. Thomas is now suing, claiming that the Los Angeles Dodgers co-owner fired her because he wanted a "sub stantially younger woman" to service him in the air. The former employee filed a wrongful termination suit in the L.A. County Superior Court. While admitting she was late for work one day, Thomas claims she was late because she was picking up fresh turkey meat for the former NBA superstar who insists all flights be supplied with only fresh snacks.

It was not meant to of fend anybody. It was just sup posed to be a decoration. Million's neighbors were upset by his choice of decora tion. They questioned his views on race and the p res i dent.

AP Poll: us Maioritv Harbor Preiudice Against Blacks WASHINGTON Racial attitudes have not improved in the four years since the United States elected its first Black President an Associated Press poll finds, as a slight majority of Americans now express prejudice toward blacks whether they recognize those feelings or not. Those views could cost President Barack Obama votes as he tries for re-elec tion, the survey found, though the effects are mitigated by some Anlericans more favor able views of Blacks. Racial prejudice has in creased slightly since 2008 whether those fee l ings wer e measured using questions that explicitly asked respondents about racist attitudes, or through an experimental test that measured implicit views toward race without asking questions about that topic directly. In all, 51 percent of Anleri cans now express explicit anti-Bl ack attitudes, compared with 48 percent in a similar 2008 survey. When measured by an impliCit racial attitudes test, the number of Anlericans with anti-black sentiments jumped to 56 per cent, up f rom 49 percent during the last presidential election In both tests, the share of Anlericans express ing pro-Black attitudes fell.
