Death came Sunday morning (5:30a.m.) while he was in the care of LifePath Hospice. Bob was 74 years old. Samuels retired as Vice President of Manufacturer Hanover's Corporate Banking and International Sector (JPMorgan Chase) in 1992. He was one of the first Black banking Vice Presidents in the nation. Within in 2 years after arriving in the area, Samuels was diagnosed with prostate cancer, an ailment he says he was ignorant about ; but learned that African American males were more vulnerable to. He had retired, coming to Tampa to be close to the Caribbean islands, which he visLL ited often. He took a different direction and C decided to learn everything he could about z 4( prostate cancer Not long afterwards, he became the c foundirig chairman of the National Prostate f3 Cancer Coalition and the Florida Prostate ;::) Cancer Network. He began organizing health ... fairs on prostate cancer, initially for Black fi: men, but later to include all men. The health W fairs are still being held, now with Moffitt G:i Cancer Center hosting them. C In 1999, Samuels had throat cancer and !I! fought back to the community. en "He touched and saved many lives," Bobby Bowden would say on the death of ;::) Samuels. "He was a great impact on this community," he continued. 3: Mrs. Samuels would echo those senti ru ments, stating that of all the things her hus :::t band did, he was most concerned about people and their quality of health. Before ...1 coming to Tampa, Samuels organized W health fairs in Harlem at the branch bank where he worked. z w en 4( c a: 0 ..I LL FREE Samuels has a number of accolades to his credit. He organized the National Associ ation of Urban Bankers, established a bankers' funding program to contribute to the UNCF (to date more than $so million has been donated).

His awards are numerous: wax figure in Baltimore's Wax Museum; 2002 USA Olympic Torchbearer; and national, state and local honors.

For us African Americans, the thanks we give to America and to God is indeed, Biblical. For, we have lived to see something, which very few of us ever believed would happen in our lifetimes. The United States of America would a Black man as its Chief Executive, not just once, but twice. We are thankful, therefore, because we no longer have to lie about what our children can become. They can become president of the nughtiest nation ever to exist in the history of the world. And for that, we are thankful. Next on our list of Thanksgivings is our collective appreciation for the men and women who have kept America from experiencing a second 9-1-1 catastrophe, not only in New York City, but in any and every city across our land. We also thank the Obama administration for bringing our soldiers home from Iraq and soon, home from Afghanistan. We are thankful that Hurricane Sandy did no more than she coulddo. And most of all, we give thanks that our children, grandchildren and even great-grandchildren still live in a land where \ife is cherished and dreams can grow. For, we are Americans. Regardless of our momentary stupidities and monetary ills, God still has His hand on us. And for that, we, the People, are exceedingly thankful. First Order 01 Business--For President Obama: u. s. Tax Code T o have been there and to have seen it with our own eyes: President Obama's meeting with 12 CEOs of the Fortune soo's top companies (three of which paid no taxes for 2-3 years between 2008 and 2010) was a dream come true for America. One week after his election, the President discussed America's future and how to avoid the "fiscal cliff," which economic prognosticators predict will befall our country if something isn't. done quickly. No doubt, payment of zero taxes or less by multi-billion-dollar profit companies was dis cussed openly and honestly. At the end of the meetings, photo-ops were granted, and no curse-words were leveled at one another. We certainly hope President Obama will include such billionaire company CEOs in any discussion with Republicans when reviewing America's tax code. No doubt, such companies used unprecedented tax loopholes, which weren't available to average taxpayers. Studies recently released by the Citizens for Tax Justice and by the Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy found 280 of America's largest and most lucrative corporations from 2008 through 2010 reported pretax U. s. profits of $1.4 trillion, and paid less than half of the 35% corporate income tax rate. Sources indicate that when President Ronald Reagan took office and discovered the high level of corporate tax dodging, he enacted the 1986 Tax Reform Act, which reversed many of the corporate tax loopholes in place at that time. However, after years of slowly reinstating those 1986 cuts, Congress must now meet a mandate to restore what a Republican pres-ident did on behalf of the American people in 1986. Here's hoping the heart of America's new Congress has gained common sense. N ot long ago I decided to make a pizza. It was nothing special by free world standards. Just a simple, no meat, cheesy pie with jalapeno peppers as the topping. The entire set up may have cost me six bucks. While the finished product sat on top of my locker, an other inmate walked by my room, caught a glimpse of the concoction I threw together and made the unsolicited com ment, "You Ballin' huh?" To which I sarcastically replied, "You know I gotta do it big on the weekends." Our exchange was all part of an ongoing inside joke. A mutual, unspoken under standing among almost every one locked up on how far prison reduces a person after they hit that state or federal roadblock on their way to street fame and fortune. To those unfamiliar with hip urban lingo, the term "ballin'" Oeaving the 'g' off adds to the slickness of the phrase) is used to describe the actions of anyone performing or living at a level higher than the norm. Think Lebron James winning the NBA league MVP, the Championship and a gold medal all in one year or some one like Sean "Jay-Z" Carter renting out an entire hospital just so his wife, Beyonce, could have their baby in privacy. It is a phrase that has been circulating through inner city neighborhoods for over twenty years. And people like James and Mr. Carter fit the profile of individuals who are affec tionately known as "bailers. Whenever I hear that word now I can't help but laugh. Not because it's Eddie Murphy funny or because it's outdated, but because of everything a person will put himself through to obtain something close to resembling that label. When I look around me I realize that just about every one I've encountered in this environment, including my self, risked life, limb and free dom to create a temporary illusion of being able to claim that same elite status. But, the truth of the matter is that for the most part, we were faking. The little things purchased from ill-gotten gains, cars, clothes, rims and jewelry are really nothing more than stage props used to sell an image in a show, trinkets that hide the true shallowness underneath. And like all productions de signed to entertain, once the show ends, someone comes along to pack everything up and take it away. What is usually left is the actor stripped to his core and exposed for all his normalness. And the saddest part is watch ing this individual attempt to hold on to the fantasy by re living the illusion through the oilly thing he has left ... His sto ries. Since I've been down I have had conversations with Stand On ShakV Ground 0 n Tuesday, a 19-member Citizen Safety and Protection Task Force com missioned by Governor Rick Scott, released a final report of its findings on Florida's "Stand Your Ground" Law. Since the February shoot ing death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, this law has been under much scrutiny. So much so, that Florida's Governor had to call a task force for its review. Correct me if I'm wrong but, shouldn't there have beeri a review of this law before it was put into effect? Maybe this was the first problem. The 2qos "Stand Your Ground" law allows a person to use deadly force if they feel in danger of great harm. If someone approaches me holding a jar of slimy, squirming, worms, I'm going to feel in danger of great harm, for the simple fact that I am terrified of worms. I say this to make the point of how vague the wording of this law is, and how an indi vidual can easily misconstrue and interpret it for his/her own benefit. In the seven years since this law was passed, 'justifi able homicides' have more than doubled and applications for concealed weapons per mits have tripled. Not to men tion the cases where lives have been taken and "Stand Your Ground" has been used in the defense. With this said, the Citizen Safety and Protection Task Force only recommended minor changes in the law Hyatt, Miami's Bo Didley aJ and J-Rock of B.M.F. fame, are all on record for making 1\) millions during their glory w years in the so-called game They had it all as masters of their craft. G-5 planes, man sions with elevators inside, women of every persuasion and the respect that came with it was the norm. But if you asked them today, to a man, they would say that they would give up every penny if it meant avoiding what they found at the other end of the line. Twenty years-to-life sentences in federal penitentiaries. They discovered, like most of us who've come to our senses, that real 'ballin' isn't about the quantity of things that you can bring into your life. It is about the quality of the life you are to live. Whenever I open the paper and see another person jammed up on charges while attempting to be the next ;!! Nino Brown or John 0 Dillinger, it amazes me that :::D some people still haven't fig6 ured that out yet. )lo This weekend,in honor of the holiday, I think 111 treat myself again by adding two 3 z ounce mackerels to my bowl of m ramen noodles instead of the usual one. What can I say? Ballin' is a hard habit to break. Have a Happy Thanksgiving. Anyone wanting to contact Clarence Barr can reach Z him at: Clarence Barr, II, 43110-018; P. 0.

Most of us are eagerly await ing the outcome of the George ZimmermanjTrayvon Martin case, which I suspect will put a whole new perspective on the state's self-defense law.

HOLTON Sentinel City Editor The Hillsborough County Sheriffs Office closed its in vestigation into the death of student without filing crimi nal charges. But, the Hillsbor ough County School District has not completed its investi gation. Last month Jennifer Caballero, 11, walked out of the gymnasium during her physical education class. Her body was found in a body of water a short time later. Jennifer was one of about 20 special needs students in the gym at Rodgers Middle School. At the time of her death, six Hillsborough County School District employees were in charge of watching the children. Five of the six have been suspended with pay, pending the outcome of the investigation. Terrance J. Sowa, 63, was originally hired in 2008 as a Social Work Services Aide. Following a leave of ab sence, he returned as an ESE Aide at Rodgers. He was sus pended with pay. Ms. }Jatricia Tobin, 55, was hired in 2000 and has worked as an Aide and Atten dant. She began working as an attendant at Rodgers in July 2011. She was sus pended. Ms. Patsy Henderson, 62, was hired as a Substitute teacher and has worked in various capacities since 1982. She became and ESE aide in 1995 and was assigned to Rodgers Middle School in Oc tober 1999. She was sus pended with pay. Ms. Britney Rios, 26, was hired in 2008, and as signed to Rodgers Middle School in 2010. She began working as an attendant at Rodgers in July 2011. She was suspended. Ms. Micaela Adrianna Scipio was hired in November 2011 and assigned to Rodgers Middle School. Her job description of ESE Unique Needs Attendant She was also suspended. Ms. Catherine Seely, 57, has not been suspended. Hired in August 2009, she was escorting another child to the office when Jennifer dis appeared. In the wake of Jennifer's death, other issues pertaining to children with special needs have come to the forefront. In January, another ESE child suffered respiratory problems while on the bus, but no one called 9-1-1. She died the fol lowing day, and her parents have filed a lawsuit against the Hillsborough County School District. The Hillsborough County School Board members were not immediately made aware of the child's death. Ms. Linda Cobbe, spokesperson for the Hillsborough County School District said she wasn't sure how many people knew about the child's death, but she couldn't talk about it because it is in litigation. Ms. Cobbe also said, em ployees on the bus are al lowed to call 9-1-1, but they must also notify the dis patcher. "The driver must pull off the road they cannot drive and talk on the phone." Another incident involv ing ESE students took place in the Cafeteria of Seminole Heights Elementary. The child reportedly threw a shoe at the teacher. The teacher then put the shoe in the child s face. The final incident before the death of Jennifer Ca-ballero came about in Sep tember. According to police, bus driver Stephanie Wilkerson was transporting ESE children to Tampa Bay Ele mentary School on September 281h. An 8-year-old Black fe male was trying to exit the bus but was told to wait. The child allegedly slapped and pushed Ms. Wilkerson. The student's turn to exit the bus and started to walk down the steps, but then stopped in the middle of the stairs. Ms. Wilkerson then used her foot to push the child off the bus. The child fell on the ground and fractured a bone in her leg. Following an investigation, Ms. Wilkerson was arrested at the Hills borough County Public Schools Transportation facil ity and charged with aggra vated child abuse. She has also been suspended with pay pending the outcome of the investigation. Mrs. Carolyn Collins, President of the Hillsborough County Branch NAACP, said, "The Hillsborough County School District is one of the largest districts in the country. The district provides serv ices to an Exceptional Student Education Program that pro vides support and services to over 29,000 students with disabilities from birth to 21 years of age. Recently, several unfor tunate incidents have oc curred that negativel y impacted our children and several families. The Hillsbor ough County Branch NAACP is very concerned about the reports in the media .... As a working partner with the dis trict, we will be aggressive in our monthly meeting pursu ing answers to our questions. We expect to learn about poli cies and procedures compli ance, training status of all staff involved, student to teacher ratio, and other oper ational practices that permit errors that result in such dire occurrences. The next board meeting of the Hillsborough County School District will take place in December.

Florida Man Tells Secret Service Agents That He'd punch The ShT Out 01 Obama' CHRISTOPHER CASTILLO Christopher Castillo is not a smart man, and clearly doesn't take the federal justice system se riously Just after getting arrested for writing threatening Face book posts about President Obama, the Florida resident put the nail in the coffin once he sat down with the Secret Service. Agents arrived at Castillo's hou s e late last week for writing that he would hunt Obama down, kill him, then "watch the life disappear from his eyes," if he won re-election. Just like other idiots threatening a president (again, this is a federal offense) via a social networking site have done, Castillo went on an online rampage, but a nice Facebook friend tried to deter him of mak ing such threats. "I wouldn t call it a threat but more of a promise," he replied. Castillo told authorities that his hatred for Obama stemmed from the commander in chiefs views on healthcare. Johnson warned Castillo that his remarks were a violation of federal law but he didn t care. So, he remain s in custody until he can be fitted with a GPS monitor ing device. "'1'1 :::D 6 Pres. Oballa's 2012 Callpaign Tops Digital Fundraisinu In 2008 z 0 < m iC m m :::D President Barack Obama's 2008 campaign was largely recognized for its use of social media and its part in helping him win the election. Many wondered, when he began his re-election bid, if he would be able to generate as much enthusiasm for his cam paign As it turns out, the campaign generated e v en more. TIME magazine reports that Pres. Obama aides are saying more than $1 billion were raised by the 2012 campaign and its af filiated party committees and social media was an instru mental tool in doing so. According to a senior cam paign adviser new numbers show the Pres. Obama cam paign digitally raised about $609 million in 2012 com pared to the $500 million raised in 2008.

HOLTON Sentinel City Editor During the period of January 1, 2009 and December 31, 2010, thousands of homeowners lost their property to foreclosure. However, those individuals can obtain a free review to determine if any errors were made during the process. The deadline to apply for the Independent Foreclosure Review has been extended until December 31, 2012. Marquaz McGhee, Housing Program Manager for the CDC of Tampa, Inc., said a nationwide program that has set aside millions to eligible borrowers has not been widely publicized. "Recently, we have received more information about the program and only 3% of those who are eligible for the $4.3 million have applied." McGhee said, "Some who went through the fore closure process may qualify for the Free Independent Re view. The review will determine whether a homeowner suffered final injury and should receive compensation or other remedies because of errors or other problems dur ing the process. "If someone believes that he may be eligible, he should complete the review form. If mailed the requests must be postmarked by December 31, 2012. If submitted on the Internet, all requests must be received by December 31, 2012," he said. Some of the companies who served the loans during the foreclosures are: America's Servicing Company; 26 Years Of Service Feed Our Children Minisbies, Inc. P.O. Box 290415 Tampa, A. 33687 (813) 784-1021 FeedOurChildren.org MARQUAZ McGHEE CDC of Tampa Inc. Housing Program Manager Bank of America, Beneficial, Chase, Citibank, Countrywide, HFC, HSBC, IndyMac Mortgage, MetLife Bank, PNC Mortgage, SunTrust Mortgage, Wachovia Mortgage, Washington Mutual, Wells Fargo Bank, Wilshire Credit Corporation and sev eral others. The Review Process is being directed and monitored by Federal Bank Regulators, the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, and the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, a bureau of the U.S. Department of the Treasury. Some of the errors that result in financial injury includes: the mortgage balance amount at the time of the foreclosure action was more than actually owed; the fore closure took place although the homeowner was in compliance with the modification agreement; the foreclosure occurred while under bankruptcy protection, fees charged or mortgage payments were inaccurately cal culated, processed, or applied, and other errors. The CDC of Tampa, Inc., is helping residents i n Tampa learn if they may be eligible for a free independent review of their foreclosure and can assist with the filing of a Request for Review Form.

rtainment :!! Michael Jackson's career For Jusdn Bieber, Nicki Minai Share Stage 'BAD 25' Documentarv To Air And American Music Award Wins m Thanksgiving Night At9 P. M. On ABC and separately-at the Amerpop/rock album for "Believe." !:B MICHAEL JACKSON At the outset of BAD 25 the documentary film cele brating the 25th anniversary of Michael Jackson's Bad album director Spike Lee quickly dispenses with talk of the pop superstar's personal struggles, diving right into the artistic perfectionism that drove him to achieve his ca reer milestones. "Hopefully, that's what this documentary is about it's gonna have people return to focusing on the music, his art, which I feel is his legacy, in addition to his children, Lee, dressed in a white BAD 25 T -shirt, told reporters at the Toronto International Film Festival, where the movie had its North Ameri can premiere over the week end, after debuting in Venice 2S years to the day since Bad s release. To piece together the mak ing of Jackson's landmark LP, Lee unearthed archival footage from studio sessions and music video shoots and conducted interviews with Jackson's many collabora tors, including Quincy Jones, Martin Scorsese, Stevie Wonder and Sheryl Crow, and stars who were in spired by his music, from Kanye West and Mariah Carey to Questlove and Justin Bieber. The film, which will get a television premiere on ABC on November 22nd, follows the making of Bad track by track; though it can feel clini cal at times, it also revels in cool details, like the origin of Jackson's gravity-defying lean in "Smooth Criminal" and his famous expression, "Shamon!" Then, abruptly, Lee shifts to Jackson's death in the summer of 2009, collecting reactions from his interview subjects, many of whom choke back tears and break down. "Those were all real, raw emotions that were displayed, said Lee. Chris Tucker In 'Silver linings Plavbooll': Comedian Returns In 1st Non-'Rush Hour' Film In Over A Decade Chris Tucker has been one of the most popular, highest paid comedians in Hollywood for the last decade but he's only made three films. After the massive success of 1998s Rush Hour, his breakout action-comedy hit alongside Jackie Chan, Tucker had his pick of any number of major film roles. But instead he chose to lay low, pal around with Michael Jackson, and get paid $20 million-plus to star in two Rush Hour sequels. In recent years he's made headlines mostly for his tax troubles and the plethora of roles he missed out on, in cluding lead parts in Any Given Sunday, The Pink Pan ther Tower Heist and Quentin Tarantino's up coming Django Unchained. But now Tucker seems poised for a much-deserved comeback, with a supporting role in the Oscar-worthy new film Silver Linings Playbook, which opens in select cities this weekend.

R.33805 (D) 605-3350 (813) 248-6125 I Local Jurv Convicts Elderlv Man 01 Manslaughter On Monday afternoon, a jury took less than 2 hours to con vict a 71-year-old man of manslaughter. The jury con sisted of 4 women and 2 men; 4 whites, 1 Black woman, and 1 Hispanic or Asian woman. Since the shooting took place in September 2010, Trevor Dooley has contended that he shot David James, 41, in self defense. The two neighbors be came engaged in an argument after a teenager started skate boarding on the basketball court. James had given the skate boarder permission and Dooley objected. The two became engaged in an argument that quickly turned violent. Dooley, who is 5'7" and weighs 160 pounds, said he shot James, who stood 6'1" and 240 pounds, after James began choking him James died at the scene and his daughter, then 8 years old, witnessed the shooting. She is now 10 and under the sion of the Florida Department of Children and Families She is residing in Minnesota with an aunt. The child was called to tes tify for the defense. She stated that Dooley attempted to TREVOR DOOLEY ... Convicted of Manslaughter leave, but James prevented Dooley from leaving. Dooley, who had a weapons permit, said the shooting qual ified under the "Stand Your Ground" Law. However, Judge Ashley Moody refected that defense earlier this year. Dooley testified in his own defense. In addition to the manslaughter conviction, Dooley was also convicted of im proper exhibition of a weapon and open carrying of a firearm Both charges are misde meanors. Dooley could be sentenced to a maximum of 30 years in pri son when he stands before Judge Moody on January 10, 2013. Readers Balled Bv Conviction 01 Doolev BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel City Editor On Monday afternoon a jury convicted Trevor Dooley, 71, of manslaughter in the death of his neighbor, 41-year-old David James. The 6-member jury took less than two hours to reach the verdict The shooting took place in September 2010. Dooley, who testified in his own defense, said James was choking him at the time the fatal shot was fired. Some readers shared their opinion about the verdict. Ross Anderson said, I was shocked by the verdict. And I agree with Dooley, if the roles had been reversed, he would not have been convicted. It probably would never have gone to trial. Ms. Yvette Lewis said, I'm just really upset over the verdict. I don t understand how that verdict could have come about when the vic tim's own daughter testified that her father stopped him from leaving "This is an example of the need for more African Aiilericans on juries. When an African American is called for jury duty, he or she should serve instead of trying to get out of it. "James went after him and he was only defending himself. I just don't understand this ver dict." James Ransom said, "We haven't seen the last of this kind of thing Some people have gotten away with killing --.-. someone who should be locked up. When you're at the mercy of the jury, that's the law. "'This case makes you wonder because others have walked away using the Stand Your Ground Law. He feared for his life but he could get 30 years in prison for defimding himself. We have to hope that justice prevails "The risk of this law is that it seems to work for some but, not for everyone. I think the Stand Your Ground law is very risky." Attorney Brenda Walker said she is unsure of how she stands on the Dooley case. However as an at torney she has some issues with the Stand L--___.J Your Ground Law. "I have a problem with how the law is interpreted and mis I don't think it is interpreted in the way it was in tended in many of the cases

During this holiday season, thefts and home burglaries rise as people are out doing more shopping. be monitored on your phone, laptop, or other devices. N ADT Security Systems specialist, Jarvis El-Amin, offers some safety tips to people to help them protect their home and valuables over the h9lidays. "I have put together a list of safety tips that I hope will not just cut back on thefts and burglaries, but bec9me a permanent security initiative for everyone," said ElAmin. "Of all the safety tips, I think the one most impor tant is one that many people still tend to That is, when you discard the wrap pings and boxes of items you've purchased, don t put them in the trash for every one in the neighborhood to see what's inside your home Tear them up into smaller pieces, and put them in garbage bags that you can't see inside of." El-Amin said another JARVIS EL-AMIN safety tip is for people to make sure their property is well lit. He suggests a motion light, and definitely have a light at the entrance to your residence. "Break-ins increase over the holidays, so if you leave your home for an extended period of time, make sure your mail is either stopped or picked up. The same applies for newspapers. "You can also have some kind of timer in your house that will cut the lights on at night." El-Amin sa i d a lot of peo ple are taking advantage of "Installing cameras is very cost effective, and an aid to law enforcement to help them identify and arrest the criminals trying to break into your: home. "I think the main objects are for you to use your alarm systems, minimize your loses by using common sense, avoid confrontations, and at the top of the list is fire safe-ty. Be wary of space heaters, electrical Christmas-lights, overloaded plugs and cords, and make sure your smoke detectors are operational." El-Amin said people should also be careful about wearing a lot of jewelry when they're out shopping, because that makes them an easy target. "To check out what's going on in your neighborhood, or just to find out if you're living in a safe area, visit www.spotcrime.com. That website will let you know what kind of crimes have been occurring in that area. 11602 N. 15th St., Tampa, FL 33612 Ori the comer of Fowl and 15th St ENROLLING NOW Serving Students Ages 16-21 FREE to attend-No Tuition or Fees FREE Public Bus Transportation credits at your own Pace EARN A HIGH SCHOOL DIPLOMA CALL 813-245-9766 TODAYI 2 Convenient Claa Sessions to Choose From 7:30AM-11 :30AM Morning Session 11 :30AII-3:30PII -Afternoon Session C) m Cf. m

"Chaplain Moses Brown helps me out at four area centers, and a Girl Scout troop helps out at two others. We' re always reaching out to other facilities, including one for terminally ill children. I'd like to form partner ships with some of the churches in the area so they can get more involved, espe cially this year. I don't want any senior to miss out. I have kids who have been with me for 9 years, and are getting ready to graduate from high school. So, I'm going to need a new crew for next year." M s Hills-Ackbar said she s on a website for area scJlools to let the stu dents know they work niunity service hours through her organization. It's very important to make sure the seniors get something for the holida ys. They don t ask for much, but I've seen them cry just because somebody cares enough to hand them a card or a gift.

Ms. Durant said it's im portant for Talae to know they love her, and want to see her to make sure she's alright. "This is going to be a tough holiday season for the family. Ever year SOple family has to go through this, and now it's us. It's really hard.

FYI's a: w m :E w > o z Autolnsurance e: Terms: What Do These Terms Reallv Meanil Even with legislative re form auto insurance rates are still expected to rise until next year. If you're going to shop around for a cheaper plan, be wary of terms like 'full cover age' because it may be mislead ing. According to the Better Business Bureau, the basic types of auto insurance cover age include: Bodily Injury [BI] Liability. Pays your legal defense costs and claims against you if your car injures or kills some C one. a: iL c z c( c en w :;:::) tfc w > w c w :I: en :J m :;:::) 0.. z tu _, _, :;:::) m _, w z i= z w en c( c a: 0 _, iL PropertY Damage [PD] Liability. Pays your legal defense costs and claims against you only if your car damages another's property, nt>t your own. Medical Payments or Personal Injury Protection [PIP]. Pays for medical expenses resulting from an ac cident for you and others rid ing in your car. It also pays for you or your family members injured while riding in an other's car or while walking. Collision. Pays for re pairs of damage to your car caused by a collision with an other vehicle. Comprehensive Physical Damage. Pays for dam ages to your car resulting from theft, fire, hail, vandalism, etc. Uninsured or Under insured Motorist. Pays for costs related to injuries to you or your family members and guests in your car caused by an uninsured, underinsured, or hit-and-run driver. In Florida, every car owner is legally required to have $10,ooo of PIP also called "No Fault" because it provides ben efits regardless of who is at fault for the crash, and $10,ooo of PD liability. Though this meets the state's Jegal requirement, you still may not be fully protected in every situation. Florida Financial Respon sibility Law requires that any person who is at fault for a crash resulting in bodily inj_ury and property damage is also required to have BI liability of $1o,ooo per person, $2o,ooo per crash. Under Fla. Statute 627 736, the $1o,ooo of PIP covers So percent of all reasonable med ical expenses and 6o percent of any loss of income from dis ability. Since hospital bills could sometimes go over $10,000, and a severe injury may put you out of work a long time, you may end up having to pay out of pocket. Given that auto insurance terms can be confusing, don t be afraid to ask the insurance agent questions about what ex actly you're protected against, so that you have the knowledge to make the right decision For more information, please contact me or another Florida personal injury attorney at (813) 471-4444, or visit htw: Lfwww.vanguar

WELLCARE AND STAYWELL Eat Riahtlnd Balance Your Hormones Hormonal imbalance among women of all ages is caused by poor health habits, stress, and medications. If you experience anxiety, de pression, hair loss, acne, and fatigue, you may have an im balanced endocrine system. Eat Organic Meat Organic meat may be more expensive, however the benefits of reducing the amount of hormones you eat in your everyday diet will usually far outweigh any extra money you have spent Estrogen Flushing Foods There are certain foods which actually work to help flush away estrogen de posits. These foods contain sulforaphane and indole-3 carbinol. These substances are primarily found in crucif erous and leafy vegetables. Eating these vegetables will work by improving your liver s function in metaboliz ing estrogen. A good suggestion would be to eat at least 8 ounces of brussel sprouts, cauliflower, broccoli, cabbage, spinach and a variety of other green leafy vegetables every day. It is important that you not overcook your vegetableS as this will kill any of the nu trients your body may re quire. In addition, make sure you drink at least one cup of water eight times a day in order to help flush the toxins out of your body. Estrogen Blocking Foods Certain foods like nuts, olives, avocados and a vari ety of seeds aid your body in producing progesterone, which of course helps cancel out and block estrogen. There are some foods you must avoid at all costs if you are attempting to block es trogen from your body. Don't consume these foods: bacon, sausage, licorice, beer and soy. Get More Phytoestrogens Include food with phytoestrogens in your diet. Usu ally found in cauliflower cabbage, beans, lentils, and chickpeas, these compounds balance the production of es trogensin your Another common food that provides extraordinary results is garlic. Aside from being an antioxidant, it also improves thyroid function and cleans the lymph sys tem, all of which are vital to restore the functioning of your body' s endocrine sys tem. Lastly, drink green tea, which has high levels of cat echins. These compounds promote healthy hormonal balance by increasing the body s production of detoxi fying enzymes.

She's excited about provid ing a free Thanksgiving Dinner to teens on Saturday, November 17, at Christian Fenger Academy High School. Latiker plans to do so through her 9-year-old nonprofit, Kids Off the Block, which last year served more than soo teens and their fam ilies, she told reporters. Be sides donations, families throughout the community plan to prepare meals for the event. Last year, Isiah Thomas donated turkeys," the mother of eight beamed as she men tioned the retired NBA player. "We fed so many chil dren and their families. It was great. I started it five years ago because so many kids were coming to me and telling me they didn't have Thanks giving Dinner. We hope to beat last year's numbers." Israeli Airstrikes Kill5 Children, No End To anaclls In Sight GAZA CI1Y, Gaza Strip Israeli strikes hit two media centers in the Gaza Strip on Sunday, as Israel warned it was widening its range of tar gets to go after military commanders of the territory's Hamas rulers. Palestinian militants meanwhile fired at least one more long-range rocket at Tel Aviv, the fourth day in a row which the Israeli heartland has come under fire. The fifth day of Israel's campaign against Gaza rocket operations finds it at a cross roads of whether to launch a ground invasion or pursue Egyptian-led truce efforts. Is rael has said it is not prepared to enter into a truce without guarantees the rocket fire won't resume. "The Israeli military is prepared to significantly expand the operation," Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu declared at the start of the weekly Cabinet meet ing. Early Sunday, the military carried out dozens of attacks on rocket-launching sites, a major training base and the two media centers. Israeli gunboats also fired on militant sites on the Gaza shore line, the military said without elaborating. Seven were killed in airstrikes Sunday, including five children ranging in age from one to 11, according to Ashraf al-Kidra, a Gaza health official. Two of the children, a 3year-old girl and a s-year-old 11-month-old Omar Misharawi, cradled by his devastated father. boy, were from the same fam ily and were killed by an airstrike on the three-story home in the town of Beit Lahiya. Hamas security offi cials said three missiles struck the house, owned by a Gaza family with links to militants' rocket squads. It was not known if any militants were in or near the house at the time of the strike. Another strike targeted a Hamas militant in his car outside his home in the Shati refugee camp near Gaza City but also killed an 11-year-old girl pass ing by at the time, al-Kidra said. The deaths bring to 53 the number of Palestinians killed since the operation began on Wednesday. Twenty of the dead were civilians, and more than 400 civilians have been wounded, al-Kidra said. On the Israeli side, three civilians have been killed and more than so wounded by rocket fire. ANDREW THOMAS Andrew Thomas, 18, has been charged with solicitation of murder and solicitation of murder for hire for attempting to hire a hitman to kill his girl friend and her children. According to Cook County Sheriffs police spokesman, Frank Bilecki, Thomas was serving time for battering his girlfriend and planned for the hit to take place before his next court appearance on De cember 3rd of this year. He of fered $3,000 for the slaying of his girlfriend, and an addi tional $1,000 to kill3 ofher 4 children-aged from 2-to 4-years-old -if they got in the way. The youngest child, the only one fathered by Thomas, was to be spared.
