Brown was re portedly visiting a female ac quaintance who lives in the apartment complex. "I have been a police offi cer for 29 years and it still amazes me to see these young children take the life of an other human being like it s a video game, Sgt. Todd said. He further stated that the gun was taken from someone who lives near Brown. The owner reported it to police on the same da y as the murder.

In the midst of austerity commentaries from every eoo nomic expert who has a Facebook or Twitter, the idea seem ingly leaps out at them like a mamba snake hiding under a tomato bush. This week's Powerball Jackpot reached more than $550 million. Think about it. If Republicans and Democrats would pool their pennies rather than slinging their spittle, they could combine a suni of at least $250 million that, if played for Powerball, would literally guarantee the player to become an instant winner. So, rather than sending Middle Class Americaans back to the Stone Age, for the sum of a measly $250 million, Capital Hillers would look like heroes when they came up winning $550 million. The Middle Class would be saved, and Ameri can multi-millionaires and billionaires could keep all their un-counted zillions. Isn't it fascinating that, in the midst of what has been called "America's fiscal rendition of 'High Noon'," most Americans are not so much concerned about the Possibility of a $2,500 increase on their income taxes as they are hopeful of winning an unheard of "Alice-in-Wonderland" sum that could only be received and spent on the dark side of the Moon? Consequently, this most recent Powerball madness leaves us, here at the Sentinel with one stark question: "ARE WE AMERICANS BROKE, OR AREN'T WE?" For an answer, ask the Powerball player standing in line in front of you. Jim Grear: The GOP's Smoking Gun Remember Jim Greer? Before and during the past Pres idential election, his name was more popular than Tony the Tiger's, and for good reason. We had been watch ing with keen interest the continued delay of the former Florida GOP Chairman's daytime drama as he fought for his freedom. Originally scheduled for August 2012,just before theRepublican Party's national convention, Greer's court date was mysteriously moved to November. And now, the case has been postponed to February. Indeed, the Florida and National Republican Parties (whose new motto is "KEEP IT SWEET AND SYMPATHETIC FOR TilE 47%!) sorely wish Jim Greer would simply pack up and go away. Why? Because, Jim Greer knows where all the Great Pachyderm's bones are buried. No doubt, voters have already heard that Greer plans to talk about meetings he attended where "how to suppress the Black vote" was served along with tiramisu. What's more, voters recently learned GOP attorneys may be defending certain Conservatives who attended the "FOR MEN ONLY" "Final Solution" summit where prostitutes may also have been on the itinerary. Things are almost as bad as when Conservatives skinny dipped in the Red Sea. ct However, J. G's coming. And when he gets a chance to testify, rumors and heads will roll. So, who's Jim Greer? w And why have we suddenly not heard from him? He is the CJ GOP's worst nightmare. In fact, he has been nalried "GREER THE SMOKING GUN!" Wh en I first arrived here at the Marianna Federal Correctional Institu tion a few months ago, I was informed by an officer during the screening process that I was preparing to walk onto a compound designated as a safe haven for child molesters. Apparently, to avoid con tinuously paying the costly medical expenses that come with broken faws, providing dentures and repairing punc tured lungs, the Feds decided to turn a few of their facilities into places where men who stalk schoolyards and jump out of trees could do their time in peace. I was told that out of the 1,200 inmates housed at this institution, 700 were convicted sex offenders. That translated to the fact that on any given day, every other person I en countered would probably be someone you warn your chil dren about --a thought that continues to make my skin crawl. Once I made it to my unit, I noticed a portion of the popu lation fit the Chester stereo type. Extremely pale creepy-looking, white guys with bad skin and geeky dispo sitions. After I settled in I also dis covered that, while there were a significant amount of the kind of weirdoes who would have most mothers dialing 9+ 1 on sight, their numbers didn t come close to adding up to the 700 sex offenders quoted to me upon my arrival. To me, that meant that a lot of the regular-looking guys around me were hiding their horns and masquerading as real men. I realized that some of the people, who would otherwise pass for the run-of-the-mill federal inmate locked up on drug or weapons charges, were in fact predatory pedophiles. The prototypical "creepy white guy" I described earlier didn t necessarily fit the profile. Real life monsters, as it turns out, are just as varied in size, color and texture as the ones kids vi sualize in their nightmares. Since I've been here I've often thought about the women I've met throughout my life who, at different times, confided in me their own hor rific experiences of abuse at the hands of close family mem bers. Most of their tormentors were men whose despicable actions were never brought to light because their victims were either too scared to tell or weren't believed once they were brave enough to come forward with what was hap pening to them. Being a protective father, it never registered with me when I heard stories of sexual abuse where a child's accusations weren t taken seriously.

But the ugly truth is that in a lot of cases, Black hou seholds in par ticu l ar, it happens far too often. I recently read a book b y jazz singer, artist, actress and author Rose Bilal, entitled "Don't Blame The Road." In it, she reflects on how being sexually abused by several members of her family, includ ing her father, dramatically impacted her life and her abil ity to have meaningful rela tionships with anyone as she grew older. Her suffering only ended once she moved away because of her inability to tell her mother what was going on behind closed doors. While she ultimately led a successful existence and came to terms with what happened to her as a child, deeply imbed ded scars in her psyche are a constant reminder of the struggle she once endured. They say it takes a village to raise a child. It is also the re sponsibility of each member of a community to protect that child as well. Each person can do his or her part by paying closer attention, refusing to look the other way and not being fooled by misleading pearances. We may not be able to stop the sickness. But we can pre vent that mental illness from causing any further damage to the well being of the individu als who will one day shape all of our futures. Help stop the abuse of children.

When she later de cides to tum her passion into a career, it is school or college that will help her expound on what she has already been prac ticing. There are many (degree less) people who possess a wealth of knowledge, skills and information. I, myself, happen to know a few.

Police arrested Ms. Moore, 40, on February 2 2010, and charged with first degree murder, in connection with the death of Shake speare. His murde r was the culmination of a se ries of events that began after he won $30 million lottery jackpot in 2006. Shakespeare and former co-worker Michael Ford stopped at a Frostproof con venience store. Ford entered the store and Shakespeare asked that he bring him two lottery tickets back. After it became known that Shakespeare had won the $30 million jackpot, Ford filed a lawsuit against him, claiming Shakespeare had stolen the winning ticket from his wallet. He lost the lawsuit. Shakespeare decided to accept a one time payout. Shortly after winning, a woman named Dorice Donegan "Dee Dee" Moore came into his life in late 2008. She was allegedly going to write a book about his life she told police W ithin months, in 2009, Shakespeare ceased to communicate with his family, including his mother and son.

Upton, is heading to Atlanta to join the Braves. Upton's deal is reported to be $75. 25 million over/ 5 years, the largest free agent contract awarded by the Braves. The contract is pendUpton passing a physical. Upton had turned down a $13.3 million, one-year offer from the Rays in October, because he sought a more. lucrative long-term deal. He will receive an average of $15.5 million a year over the life of the contract. As compensation, the Rays will get a pick in June's draft that will come between the first and second rounds. Upton is expected to replace Michael Bourn in center field for the Braves. Other than the Braves, the Philadelphia Phillies had shown interest in Upton. The Rays accepted the fact they couldn't compete with Upton on the open market, just as they had with left fielder, B.J.UPTON Carl Crawford after the 2010 season. The qualifying offer was made to make sure the Rays would get a compen satory draft pick. Upton was the only center fielder in Major League Baseball to play at least 144 games each year over the past five years, and was the longest tenured Ray at the end of the season. Upton was the second over all pick in the June 2002 draft and was projected to be the. Ray's shortstop of the future. He turned 28 in August. Upton leaves the Rays as the organization's all-time leader in walks (430) and strikeouts (1,020).

The following possession yielded a 35-yard field goal by Alex Catron, for a 17-0 halftime advantage.

Eavut Coon Sentences 8 To Death Over Prophet Film CAIRO, EGYPT -An Egyptian court convicted in absentia Wednesday seven Egyptian Coptic Christians and a Florida-based Ameri can pastor, Terry Jones, sentencing them to death on charges linked to an anti-Islam film that had sparked riots in parts of the Muslim world. The case was seen as largely symbolic because the defendants, most of whom live in the United TERRY JONES States, are all outside Egypt and are thus unlikely to ever face the sentence The charges were brought in September during a wave of public outrage in Egypt over the amateur film which was produced by an Egyptian-American Copt. During the trial, the court reviewed several videos of the defendants, especially a video of Pastor Terry Jones burning the Qu\-an, Islam s Holy Book. All the defendants, except Jones, hold Egyptian nationality. ., g en m z -f Shocked Parents learn About Daughter's Death On Facebook z m r-m c: r r-GEORGIA -A Valdosta State University freshman's parents are distraught after finding out about her death on Facebook.

Crime 0 (f) a: w m :E w > 0 z Man And His Nephew Arrested For Running 21-Year ).;' ic( Dog Fighting Operation c [ On Tuesday, officials "with Hillsborough County Animal Control along with Hillsborough County Sheriffs deputies arrested two men for running a 20year dog fighting operation in Seffner. Animal Control spokes person, Marti Ryan, said they received a tip about the operation, and acted immediately. "The call we received was about dogs with injuries or dead on the property. Prior to that call, we hadn't received any complaints." Ryan said they recov-ered 7 dogs from the property at 6846 Stark C Road, in various medical fE conditions. She said some c of the dogs were in pretty Z good shape, but were c( being bound by chains weighing more than 25 pounds each. W These people bait the animals by teaching them as puppies to attack each w other," said Ryan. "One of the dogs was 0 being used exclusively as a w breeder. They were all m mostly pit bulls." :::i Vannie Franklin, 55, and his nephew, Russell 11. Franklin, 41, were arrested and charged with ti various animal cruelty :j and baiting animal :::: charges. Vannie's bond m is set at $57,500, and uj Russell's bond is set at z $14,000. !z According to records, w Vannie Fr8nklin hadn't been arrested. in c Hillsborough County prior [ to this incident. However, g Russell Franklin had "been arrested 29 times, dating back to 1995, on charges ranging from marijuana possession to carrying a concealed weapon. Ryan said Vannie Franklin told investigators he had probably buried over 100 dogs over the past 20 years on the property. "What we've found so far doesn't verify that. We found drugs and weapons on the property, and for tunately none of the dogs needed to be euthanized. We also haven't determined if the dead animals c( were tortured or just fought to qeath. "I found it very unnervw ing how Vannie i Franklin acted about the VANNIE FRANKLIN Showed no remorse is how authorities found one of the dogs when they arnved. situation. He spoke about tlie incident without any remorse for the animals, and was very open and cavalier about the laws he's broken, and the suf fering of the animals. He acted as if it was all a nat ural thing." Ryan said as investigators were arresting the two men, a relative appeared and said she had warned them to stop the activity. "The relative made ref erence to Michael Vick, and told them if Vick couldn't get away with it, what made them think they could? "What we learned was that the abuse and death of the animals in their minds was just the cost of doing business." Ryan said the property was very isolated and the roadway leading to the property was so soft, you couldn't drive on it. "You could only go so far in a vehicle before you had to park and walk the rest of the way. The property was so isolated that peo ,Ple in the area said they were stunned about what was going on." According to the Hillsborough County Property Appraiser's web site, the property is part of the estate of Bertha Franklin. Authorities did not know her relationship with the two men, or if she was the family member who arrived during the arrests. Ryan said Animal Con.trol will petition the court for custody of the animals, and make a request that Vannie Franklin not be allowed to own dogs again. After that, they will proceed with the criminal phase. $1Uihl. In Theft II laptopS Surveillance photo of three people in the theft of two laptop computers.

West Tampa Residents Must Look Closer At Their Communitv leaders BY LEON B. CREWS Sentinel StaffWriter West Tampa Corporation Devel opment Manager, Michael Randolph, said the residents of West Tampa must not be left out of what's going on in their community, espe cially the residents of North Boule vard Homes Public Housing. There are a lot of projects going on in West Tampa right now, includ ing what's happening with the Jewish group that's taken over the old Armory, and the West Riverfront com, munity. The residents have to be more informed of what's happening, and not after the fact." Randolph said there are people who have lived in West Tampa for decades, and they are due a place when it comes to the future of their community. "My main concern is what's going on with Ed Turanchik and his group, and what their motives are," said Randolph. "It's critical residents attend our meeting, because their future de pends on it. We have too many African Americans in this community in need of employment and educa tional/training opportunities." MICHAEL RANDOLPH West Tampa CDC Development Manager Randolph said he wants the people to take a step back and take a long look at those who claim to be representing their interests. "There are a lot of groups doing a lot of things in West Tampa right now, and all of them don't have the interests of the people as their prior ity. Most of them are looking out for their own personal gain, and it may come at the expense of the people if they aren't aware of what's going on. "There's been too much behind the-curtain meetings and decisions going on, and now it's time for the people to see the face of who is sup posed to be speaking for them. They also need to be at whatever meeting their future is being discussed so they can have input." Randolph said people deserve a better quality of life than what they have now, and they need the commu nity leaders to step up and make sure everyone gets what they deserve. "I would suggest all the Afrjcan American residents join the West Tampa Community Group organiza tion, or put together something of their own. "It's obvious to me and others that the Old West Tampa Neighborhood Association doesn't represent the fu ture of Black people in West Tampa, but instead it represents the redevel opment ofWest Tampa as outlined in the West Tampa Chamber of Com merce's plan." Dwight Bolden, a facilitator for the WTCG, said he's happy to hear there will be unity and that's all he's been asking for. "I'm happy to see the West Tampa CDC getting back into action, and they will be joining all of us for the future of West Tampa. "Right now, we need to work on a plan to cure the illness in our com munity. Problems like unemploy ment and education have not been addressed in the past, and this is the time to make sure we're all on the same page and trying to accomplish the same things." Bolden said they must have their redevelopment and economic plan for West Tampa done and on the table for review by mid-December. "Time is critical right now, and if we don't get this done on time, we may not have a voice at the table. "The redevelopment of West Tampa is our top priority, and right now it needs all of our input and en ergy. It's time for a major house cleaning, and that's the only way to make sure none of the people who will be impacted will be left out of de ciding their own future." The meeting planned by the West Tampa CDC will begin at 11 a.m. on December 15th, and will be held at the West Tampa Library on the corner of Howard Avenue and Union Street. Anyone who has questions is wel comed to call the West Tampa CDC at (813) 344-4106.

CREWS Sentinel StaffWriter For more than 15 years, Sanford "San Man" Harper, Jr. has been an entrepreneur in Ybor City. When the area upgraded itself and more attention was given to attracting a younger crowd, business was boom ing. "When there were clubs on every corner, we had young people from everywhere coming here to party. It didn't matter what race you were, or whether you were rich or poor. They all came to have a great time. "During that time, business was great for me, and I was >self-sufficient. But when the iC economy tanked, so did a lot e of the opportunities for a 9: small business owner." C San Man has done every :f thing from selling flowers >and hot dogs, to managing a club along 7th Avenue. UJ "At first, I thought it was the violence going on that w > w c w ::1: SANFORD "SAN MAN" HARPER, .JR. was scaring patrons away, but it didn't take long for me to see that in spite of that, the clubs were still full. "I really tip my hat to the Tampa Police Department for getting that problem under control. But, now the problem is patrons getting their cars towed away. That has kept the people away, and all of the businesses are feeling it." San Man said as a street vendor, he was earning $2,500 a month, but starting this year, his monthly earn ings barely reach $soo. "The young people coming into Ybor City now are bringing their own alcohol, and just walking up and down the streets. They aren't patronizing the clubs like they used to, and that means the restaurants and other businesses are suffering. "I don't think we will ever see Ybor City the same way again. A company is building a Wing House on 7th Avenue, and that will bring an entirely new clientele to the area. That will be great for everyone, especially small vendors like myself."

She said she remembers who gave her an opportunity to start her own business. "I owe Sarah Ousley a debt of gratitude.

Right now, I'm calling out for everyone to please sup port Black-owned businesses during the holidays. I'd like December 15th to be the day to support Black-owned restaurants and retail busi nesses, as well as street ven dors and car detailers." On that day at her business, Ms. Lowe said she will host a sidewalk mall for businesses who don't have a building. "I want them to come out, set up their tables and tents, and promote their business es," said Ms. Lowe. "My shop is at 904-1/2 Henry Avenue, on the comer CANDYWWE of Henry and Nebraska, and I've gotten the support of Marvin Knight (Oriental Fish Market owner), ADT Security Specialist, Jarvis El-Amin, Ice Cream Magazine, Hakim Aquil, AI McCray Tampa Talking Ner.vs, and Car Broker Magazine." Ms. Lowe said millions of dollars a year are spent by African Americans in busi nesses not owned by African Americans, and she would like to see those businesses prosper.

Believers today have a lot to be thankful for. God has blessed His people with more than they can think of. If you sat down to reflect upon your day and were to take time to identify y our blessings you will realize that you have more to be thankful for than you do to complain about. Paul's letter to the church in Ephesus (Ephesians 1:3-14) helps the people un derstand that they have much to be thankful for and provides for them an under standing why. Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ (vs. 3). These verses set the tone that God is to be blessed for the blessings He has be stowed upon His children. He gives clear indication and identity of who God is. He wants the people to be clear that they are to bless the Fa ther of Jesus Christ. In a world and time when people are worshipping so many other gods, it is impor tant to know who you are blessing and praising. Paul opens these verses with a key phrase: Blessed c be the God and Father of our Why should He be blessed? He has chosen us in Him before the founda1&. c z c( c U) w ::: .... w > w c w :::a:::: U) ::::J m ::: 0.. z i= UJ -J -J ::: m -J w z i= z w U) C g 1&. SERVICE TIMES Sunday School -1 0 A.

You are compelled to bless God because He specifically chose you. It was not by accident or be cause you were left out and looked over. God chose you intentionally to be blessed. Because you were chosen by God you have been set apart and considered blame less because you have been redeemed and washed with the blood of Jesus. God did not just stop at choosing you. He went fur ther by adopting you accord ing to the pleasure of His will (vs; 5). God adopted you to be His child with His name. When you adopt someone you give him your name and make him entitled to all that you have. When God adopted you He gave you all that He had. He did it not because you were the best or because you deserved it. He adopted you because &REAlER FRIENDSHIP M.B.CHURCH 3325 E.

The writer must have thought about his former life and realized the blessing of his new life and inserted a command to give God praise for His grace (vs. 6). When you consider that God saved you, cleaned you, delivered you, and adopted you, it should give you a reason to praise God for His grace. He did not have to do it, but you must be grateful that He did. To help the church under stand this adoption concept through Jesus, Paul writes that we have redemption through His blood, the for giveness of sins in accor dance to His grace (vs. 7). Adopting you was not free; there was a cost. The cost to repurchase you from the hand of the enemy was the blood of Jesus. 1t was with this same blood that you were released from the debt of all your sins. Having been redeemed IIPTISTC C 12t11L...._at.T-H.IIIII (8111 22&-1390 and adopted, God revealed the mystery of His will to His children (vs. 9). Before sal vation God s purpose and will for your life was consid ered to be a mystery. Some people do not have any idea of God's purpose and will for them. As one comes into full relationship with God He will begin to reveal His pur pose and will for your life and his will shall no longer be a mystery. To give further reason to bless God, Paul shares with the church that we have ob tained an inheritance, being predestined according to His Will that we will be for His praise and glory (vv. 11, 12). You must know that as a child of God you have an in heritance from God. The in heritance that you have has already been predetermined. This lets you know that God already knows what you need and when you will need it. ltrllnl .. 11 PrQer Stnlct, TUtsdaJ.-------I pa. Jllntla Studl. Tuesday 1:a1 pa. Bible Stadl.

As a certified job and career transition coach, Dr. Loblack has helped people refine their employment skills, and uncover their preferences. "I tried putting together words of hope and inspiration through the success stories of the City of Tampa's first African American Chief Financial Officer, Sonya Little; 21-year Naval veteran, Dr. Loblack said individ ually, they have stories of their keys to finding oppor tunity in spite of roadblocks and other issues. "I found their words very inspirational, and I hope others will somehow find the motivation to do what ever they need to do to fulfill their dreams of success. We don't have as many success stories in African Americans communities as we did in the past, and the ones that are there mostly go unnoticed. Dr. Loblack feels the success comes from identi fying your strengths, and allowing others to provide the tools that you will need to become self-reliant and financially independent.

Ginseng: Prevent And Treat Colds Ginseng is one of the most researched natural remedies for cold treatment and pre vention. American ginseng can help prevent the common cold by bolstering your immune system, while Siber ian ginseng may help relieve your cold symptoms. If you take other supplements or prescription drugs, be sure to ask a healthcare provider about adding any variety of ginseng to the mix, as it can interact with many medications Echinacea: Treat Cold Symptoms Echinacea is probably not useful for prevention, but it may be useful when taken within the first 24 hours of the first cold symptoms. Echinacea reduces inflammation to combat cold and flu symptoms, and it may also bolster the immune sys tem. If you use Echinacea, try to only use it for the short-term because it can cause some uncomfortable side effects in some people. Chicken Soup: For The Cold Soul Most peopl e love a big bowl of chicken soup when they have a cold and don't care whether it helps or not. Well, the good news is it ac tually may work. Chicken soup may speed healing by killing off some of the virus cells and soothing a sore throat or stuffy nose. Zinc Lozenges: Treattnent/Prevention Throat drops are an everpopular remedy for cold symptoms, and zinc lozenges may just be the gold standard. In some studies, zinc throat drops actually seemed to prevent colds as well as re lieve symptoms. Try one or two per day for prevention and about one lozenge every hour or two once a cold starts. No matter which of the above prevention methods or remedies you choose, you can be sure that. they have some pretty credible re search behind them. So treat your colds with confidence this winter. 1is The Season For Drv Skin To really take care of your skin, it is important to work from the inside out. The first and easiest step to treating your dry skin is a nat ural, simple thing : water. By increasing your water con sumption, your skin will maintain proper hydration. Eating healthy fats can also be a beneficial combatant against dry skin. Also known as essential fatty acids, healthy fats can readily be found in fish such as salmon, mackerel, and tuna. Vitamins A, E, and D can also be of great assistance during cold months. Vitamin A is found in veggies like car rots, yams, and green, leafy vegetables, while Vitamin E is common in raw, u,nsalted seeds and nuts. The body nat urally produces vitamin D when skin is in sunlight, but during winter, other sources can be found like sweet pota toes, fish, and eggs It is important to treat and prevent dry skin It may seem like a cosmetic issue above anything else, but sufferers complain of things such as itching, unsightly blemishes, flaking, cracking, soreness, or stinging. Worse still than these symptoms are the riskS dry skin can introduce. Bacteria germs are highly attracted to dry surfaces, so it becomes easier to pick up unpleasant germs from workStations, restrooms, doorknobs, etc. when you have dry skin. Espe cially in the case of cracked, open skin, it offers germs an easy entry into your body. Creams, lotions, and mois turizers can help with dry skin afflictions. It is important for chronic sufferers to treat dry skin both externally and inter nally for an efficient fix. FillS For Not-So-Fresh Breath Brush and floss more frequently. One of the prime causes of bad breath is plaque, the sticky build-up on teeth that harbors bacteria Food left between teeth adds to the problem. All of us should brush at least twjce a day and floss daily. Scrapeyourtongue.The coating that normall y forms on the tongue can harbo r foul smelling b ac t eria. To elimi nate them, try a tongu e scraper. They're designed specifically to apply even pressure across the surface of the tongue area, removing bacteria, food debris, and dead cells that brushing alone can't remove. Avoid foods that sour your breath. Onions and garlic are the prime offenders. The only way to avoid the problem is to avoid eating onions and garlic, especially before social or work occa sions when you're concerned about your breath. Kick the habit. Bad c -J breath is just one of many rea sons not to smoke. Smoking dainages gum tissue and stains teeth. It also increases your risk of oral cancer. Rinse your mouth out. In addition to freshening your breath, anti-bacterial mouth washes add extra protection by r e ducing plaque-causing bacteria. After eating, swish ing your mouth with plain water also helps freshen your breath by eliminating food particles. Keep your gums healthy. Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, is a common cause of bad breath. Bacteria accumulate in pockets at the base of teeth, creating bad odors. If you have gum disease, your den tist may recommend a peri odontist, who specializes in treating gum disease.

Estate .Planning For FamilY Caregivers: What You Don't Know Mav Hurt You PART II Last Will And Testament Will preparation is a crucial component of estate planning because it acts as the final word regarding the transfer of prop erty. If a family member dies without a will, state law will in dicate what happens to the property. Based on the family situation, the state's plan may be inconsistent with the true desires of the family member. Beyond property, another key benefit to having a will is the designation of a guardian for minor This is a de cision that should not be made by the courts. A Will is also used to identify the person-or executor-responsible for making sure per sonal wishes regarding estate assets are carried out and to avoid court conflicts over who should serve in this important role So me people succumb to the temptation of preparing wills using 'Do It Yourself legal drafting software or self help materials from the public li brary or local bookstores. Preparing legal documents without the benefit oflegal ad vice can result in unnecessary hardship and unintended con sequences.

Detroit Man Charged With Murders 014 Women JAMES BROWN STERLING HEIGHTS, Mich.-A 24-year-old man pleaded not guilty Monday to murdering four women whose bodies were found in the trunks of abandoned cars in Detroit last December. James Brown, who has been locked up on lesser charges relating to the case since May, said little during a brief arraignment hearing in Sterling Heights, the Detroit suburb where he lived. He entered not guilty pleas to four counts of first degree murder through his attorney, Jeffrey Cojocar, and is due back in court Jan. 9th for a hearing to determine whether there' s enough evidence for a trial. Cojocar said before the hearing that from the evidence he's reviewed thus far, the case against Brown is circumstantial. He suggested, however, that Brown may have incriminated himself during a videotaped interview with Detroit police. 505 East Jackson St. Suite #303 Barrister's BuDding Tampa, FL 33602 (813) BANKRUPTCY Stop ForecloMwe & Creclltot's H---.t REAL ESTATE LAW FAMILY LAW Arrested and Concerned About Your Legal Rights? aM P.A.
