Features Teen Shot In Belmont Heights Estates Dies On November 26, 2012, Lonnie Bernard Henderson celebrated his 18th birthday. On December 4th he was hospitalized in critical condi tion after he was shot. Tampa Police reported that Henderson was a passenger in a vehicle that stopped at the intersection of 18th Street and 25th Avenue inside Belmont Heights Es tates. Police said the driver of the vehicle stopped, and Henderson was talking to ai10ther person. As he talked with the other person, he was shot in the head. The driver then took Henderson to the soo block of Floribraska and called 9-1-1. Henderson was transported to St. Joseph's Hospi tal, and police reported he was in critical condition. Police have not released any suspect information, and their investigation is ongoing. Henderson's great-grandmother, Ms. Karrie Wells, said Lonnie was ac tually being kept alive with a respirator since he was first taken to the hospital. "On Wednesday, we got together and decided to pave him taken off the respirator, and have his organs do nated." Ms. Wells said Bender-WNNIE HENDERSON son has 8 siblings, and was born in prison during his mother's incarceration. "He was adopted by his aunt, Delores Henderson, but lived with me. "On his birthday, he didn t want to celebrate. He just went out to dinner with his girlfriend, and just slept. "Lonnie had just started attending a school to become an electrician. He loved boxing and had a promising future as a football player. Like so many of our young men these days, his attention was by what was going on in the community, and he picked the wrong friends." Ms. Wells said the family is working on funeral arrangements. TheSenHnel Will Have Amended Holiday Hours and Street Distribution.

HOLTON Sentinel City Editor Recently, a Hillsborough County attorney was appointed to serve on the Florida Board of Bar Examiners. The Florida Supreme Court justices selected her to serve on the board. Attorney Barbara Pittman was chosen to succeed retiring member Alan H. Aron-son, of Miami. Attorney Pittman said she was notified in August that she had been chosen. However, her term did not begin until November 1, 2012 and will end on October 31, 2017. Attorney Pittman said when an individ ual applies to become an attorney, he or she must pass the bar exam as well as a background investigation. Her role as a member of the Florida Board of Bar Examiners kicks in when an issue comes up with a person's background. "My board conducts hearing as a quasi-ju dicial position to determine the necessary fit ness and character of the person. We have hearings once a month on the weekends," she said Attorney Pittman stated that a lengthy and detailed investigation is conducted on po tential attorneys. The bar examination is held twice a year with thousands of potential attor neys passing the bar. Of those thousands five to six thousand may have issues in their back grounds that must be examined. Born in Graceville, Florida, Attorney Pittman was raised in Jacob City, Florida. She graduated from Graceville High School in A'ITORNEY BARBARA PITfMAN 1973.

N c; Features N --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------""" a: w m :E w 0 w c Entrepreneur Celebrates 12 Years ln'Real Estate Business c a: u.. BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel City Editor .Several year s ago, a y oung Tamp a m a n decided t o e nte r t h e r eal est a t e industry. At the time there was a traditional route established that had serv e d other realtors well. However, as a young entrepreneur, Kenny Rushing had his own ideas. He created a program that would eliminate some of the red tape involved in the market. His Cash in 3 Days program introduced in 2004 is being used throughout the country. He the first in real estate to introduce a Rehabbers full fledged wholesale real estate business in Tampa. "One of the great things about the program is if the title is clear and there are no liens or judgments on the property, I can get the owners 9 cash in 3 days. I can close in 3 days," Rushing said. Q Looking back over more z than a decade in business, c( Rushing learned from his experiences and had the fore Q sight to be prepared. When he f3 entered the market, the real estate market was booming all over the country. a: However, when the market crashed in the mid 2000s, W many realtors suddenly found Q themselves unemployed Instead of closing his doors and admitting defeat, ffi Rushing changed his strate gy I survived by making 111. adjustments. I invented the bulk real estate trader system. tij I bought properties iii bulk Kenny Rushing is shown with one of his clients, Larry Tate, completing a real estate deal. from banks in other states. I was lucky enough to find other options. I had good mentors and I learned how to make money in a downed market." Rushing also said the sup port of the African American community is in part respon sible for his success. "When I started in this business, I decided to do exactly what I said I would do and people remember that. I gained the trust of the community. It is important to plant good seeds early and one can still reap the benefits. The people I have dealt with know that I value integrity and trust. People know that I'm going to do what's right and that in itself is a blessing from God," he said. Although he has the num bers and statistics to support his accomplishments, Rushing places more value on the names and faces of his clients than the numbers. And, he said because of the foundation he established long about keeps him travel ing on speaking engagements throughout the country. "My success in Tampa opened doors to success both natural ly and internationally," he said. As far as his achievements go, Rushing said he has bought and sold more proper ty from private sellers than anyone in Tampa. He points to more than 1,ooo real estate transactions in his career. He also points out that since he has bought and sold more than 55 houses this year, the market is still viable. In addition to timing and not being afraid to re-invent himself, Rushing said his success is a combination of staying abreast of the latest technology, having a backup plan, and learning from your experiences. m w z i= z w en <( c a: 0 I.L Murder Trial Ollccused Lonerv Winner Killer Continues Earlier this week, Gregory Smith testified in the firstdegree murder trial of Dorice "Dee Dee" Moore.

Reasons Whv Pres. ObaDJa Should Stand His Ground On The Fiscal Clift T here are numerous reasons why President Obama should stand pat on not cutting "entitlement" programs (such as Medicare, Medicaid, food stamps, welfare, college grants, etc.) unless tax cuts for America's wealthy and corporate community are eliminated. In truth, time has come for our POTUS to name names and call folks out of the Conservative closet who are so intent on protecting "Big Daddy Warbucks." Therefore, we wish to share several reasons that help build our President's platform and opinion. First, though it is a drop in the bucket to some (only .21 million), at least 2,400 millionaires receive unemployment checks annually even though they earned million in the previous year. Second, Fortune soo companies establish departments that are responsible for finding creative ways to legally avoid paying any taxes helping more than 78 companies to pay no taxes between 2008 and 2010. In 2010, 37 companies paid no income taxes, yet, received $7.8 billion in tax rebates. In addition, our country loses $70 billion each year, thanks to corporate tax breaks rewarded for relocating American jobs overseas, and de. ducting the costs of civil settlementS and fines paid for fraud. We don't want to go over a cliff. But we don't want to be lied to, either. Let President Obama know you support common sense. I A Police OHicer Or A Gentlemanil I By now, you've read about it, or seen it on the news. Maybe, you and others have marveled over what a white New York police officer did for a Black homeless man on one of the busiest streets in the world. He bought him boots ... then knelt and prepared to help the. homeless man put them on. A passerby with a cell-phone camera saw it all, and sent what was seen around the world. The sender's Facebook tallied more than 175,000 hits the first day. By the end of the week, millions of Internet users had logged on and patched in. Within less than two weeks, the NYPD officer and his homeless recipient had become global celebrities. No doubt, the officer might even be considered for a Nobel Prize. Why? The answer may be as unsettling as the deed was heroic. Was the officer (whose name was Lawrence DePrimo) a hero? AlmQst instinctively, he would say not. Instead, no doubt, DePrimo would explain in a slight Brooklyn brogue, "I seen my duty an' I did it." Such is the philosophy of police officers throughout America. But the truth of such philosophy is that it is not seen as real by every American, or by other obsen(ers around the world. Indeed, from Bull Con:D.or to Clint Eastwood, the persona of the American police officer is flinty and insensitive with a measure of racism to balance the brew. Then here comes Officer DePrimo, and the world is knocked off .its pins. Yes, we cheer the NYPD Good Samaritan. For, though we know nothing in his police policies advised him to do S ometimes I just don't know what to say. When I hear the same types of stories over and over again I can't help but begin to as sume that, regardless of how unbelievably horrific, certain occurrences are just part of the new normal. For instance, when I heard about Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher shooting his live-in girlfriend and mother of his 3-month-old daughter before also turning the gun on him self last weekend, I was only surprised because it's not something you normally see from a professional football player (at least not during his career). But as far as the shock value of the incident it self? For me, it was at a min imum. It wasn t that I knew something about _Belcher,s past that made me think. that he was capable of doing something so heinous. My lack of amazement had more to d.o with the fact that I'd seen the same movie far too many times. Everyone reading this can probably remember a story involving someone they knew or heard of who lost his mind and killed his wife or girl friend in a jealous rage. In about every instance the tragedy was preceded b y a history of domestic violence that ultimately reached its tipping point over something mundane In this most recent example, Belcher's anger was allegedly sparked when he felt his girlfriend returned home too late after a night out with her friends. Unfortunately, it's a sce nario that is all too common when these three elements are combined: Insecurity; immaturity and dependency. Mix these together, add the illusion of love and you cre ate a concoction more explo sive than dynamite. In the aftermath, the same questions always re main. Why do weak-minded men always try to control their women through vio lence? And why do the women they attract continu ously sacrifice their mental, emotional and physical well being at the altar of tempo rary financial stability? As a parent, the most The Power Of Choice We may not be able to leap tall buildings in a single bound or stop mov ing trains with our bare hands ; however, we all pos sess a power much greater than such animated acts of heroism. We have the power of choice. Choices, both good and bad are what shapes us and ultimately, shapes the world we live in. For example: what if Abraham Lincoln never chose to free the slaves? (I'll let you marinate on that a few seconds) or what if Henry Ford never chose to use his engineering skills to build an automobile? How about John F. Kennedy, Martin Luther King, Jr., Gandhi, and Rosa Parks? Each of these individual s made choices that have im pacted us in some way, shape or form. And these are only the famous ones we read about in books and see on television. Now, think about yourself and the choices you have made. How many times have you said, "If I could do it all over again?" Don't worry, I've also spoken these exact words but not without rec ognizing the bigger picture of my actions. The good thing about bad choices is that they will (eventually) teach us how to make good decisions. I can't tell you how many times I've read or seen stories in the news that end tragically. I al ways reflect on the situation and ask myself wha t would the outcome ha ve been if he/she had onl y tak e n a se c ond to make a better cho ice ? for their own J ovan :::D Belcher. Allowing themN selves to get more caught up o ..... in the muscularity of a man's N body and neglecting to pay any attention to what s going on in his brain. Sports commentator Bob Costas said that the Belcher incident is a case about gun control. That had he not had access to a gun, none of this would have ever happened. I strongly dis agree. As far as I'm concerned, it's more about self-control. Or more to the point, a lack of it. Belcher could have used any weapon and caused the same amount of damage. But if he would have stopped for a moment and thought long and hard before he acted, he ;n and his girlfriend would still be alive. And the mentioning c of his pame toda y would lead l> to an entirely different conversation. z Anyone wanting to con-:::! tact Clarence Barr can reach him at: Clarence r-m Barr, D, 43110-018; P. 0. c: Box 7007; Marianna, FL 1= 32447-7007.

And if so, then when will a child know (for himself) how to niake good choices, as well as, the consequences of bad ones? Decision-making begins at a very early age. If you have kids you may hear their teacher constantly remind them to, "Make good choices." This is because the course of our lives depends on the choices we make. You may not have the power to change your past, but by making better choic es t o day, y ou have the power to change your future.

Obama News -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------c Pres. Obama's Second Facts About President Inauguration Expected To Obama's Draw Smaller Crowds drugs. He also brought a responsible end to the ....., war in Iraq and brought N Osama bin Laden to jus-o WASHINGTON -Four years ago, President Barack Obama's swearing-in drew a record crowd to the National Mall. There were 1.8 million peqple eager to witness history: the country's first Black president taking the oath of office. Now, as Pres. Obama prepares for his secondterm kickoff, the capital is pre-occupied with a looming economic crisis, exit from war and a reshuffling in Congress. Ticket demand is lower. More muted inaugural celebrations are typical with every second presidential term. Perhaps Pres. Obama is a victim of his own historical significance. Perhaps it's a sign of how far the nation has come, some so years after the March on Washington that drew a multitude of people calling for civil and economic rights for African-Americans. Although inaugural planning and preparations are well under way, Pres. Obama' s advisers say they Wu your home in the FORECLOSURE PROCESS in 2009-2010, and was -,our mortgage loan seniced by ooe of the oompanies listed here? PRES. BARACK OBAMA aren't yet focusing on the swearing-in as they negotiate over the "fiscal cliff" automatic tax increases and budget cuts that will occur in January unless the White House reaches a compromise with Congress. Party planners haven't made even the most basic of announcements yet, such as who will serve on Pres. Obama's inaugural committee and how they will raise money. No plans are in the works for a star-studded concert like the one four years ago that kicked off the inaugural festivities. Amertcn s.nlclno Co. Nltora loin HFC BAC Homt s.n1cino HS8C The inauguration is thought of so little these days that there was even some confusion around the White House about when it would be held. Some aides said it would be Tuesday, Jan. 22, after the federal holiday observing King's birthday. In fact, the public ceremony will be on the holiday, Monday, Jan. 21 -a day set by a joint resolution of Congress months .ago, before it was known who would be taking the oath Pres. Obama's second term automatically begins at noon on Jan. 20 under the 2oth Amendment to the Constitution, and he' s plan ning a private swearing-in at the White House. Congressional offices will distribute roughly 250,000 tickets for people to watch in front of the podium, with members of the public able to attend without tickets down the National Mall. Those who want to attend will find an easier time than those who came four years ago, starting with greater hotel availability.

..... a: w m ::E w 0 w c Successful African American Male Forum Leads To Next Event BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel City Editor On Saturday, November 10th, members of the commuC nity responded to a request from 0: educators to attend the First U. African American Male Commu nity Forum. The event took place at Middleton High School. Lewis Brinson, Superin tendent of the Administration for the Hillsborough County Public School District in conJUncocm with other educators, hosted the "Let's Connect To Save Our Sons"Young Men's Forum. Brinson said the event was a huge success with more than educators participating, and 104 students were interviewed. The next step is to report to community as well as to hold a follow up forum with the par ticipants to share the next step. group also plans to expand to African American girls and conduct a similar forum. Brinson formed the Think Tank group earlier this year to Q find new methods to address a: problems. One of those issues u. 0 focused on the high rate of susZ pension and dropout rates < African American male students. c The forum is designed to be en a continuing effort to make rec ommendations to teachers, parIents, and the community on i:t fostering the support to improve w > the situation community-wide. Brinson further stated that the success of the male forum has resulted in the planning of a forum for young women. On Saturday, December 15th, the group of educators and community activists will assem ble at Middleton High School, 4801 N 22nd Street, from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. This time, the group will host the "Save Our Daughters" Young Women's Forum. During the two-hour forum, the group is inviting pastors, members of their congregation and neighborhoods to attend. The educators are hosting the Think Tank to address problems young African American females are experiencing in school. The young women will have the same opportunity as the young men to discuss their likes and dislikes about school openly. "We want to hear from the kids instead of hearing from the adults. There are just too many young men being excluded, dropping out, and just not being successful. We just have to do more. This is the only way to en sure a better future," Brinson said.

Tampa Senator Files Teen Hapes CaDIDIHniiV Will Help Her New Voting Bill Get TalnauuuralleadershiP SuDIDiit BY GWEN HAYES to represent my church famm TALLAHASSEE --The fact that some Florida voters had to stand in line for more than six hours to cast their ballots in the presidential election has prompted some blistering criticism of the state's voting process. Even Florida's new Senate President Don Gaetz was among the critics when he re cently said Floridians should not have to stand in line for six and seven hours to vote. He pointedly remarked, 'This isn' t a Third World country.' Now one of his colleagues, Sen. Arthenia Joyner, of Tampa, is proposing a simple idea that she thinks will help solve the problem of long lines. She has filed a bill that would expand early voting simply by restoring some of the options that Floridians used to have in the state' s old election law. The old law allowed 14 days of early voting. The Re publican-controlled Legislature passed a new law cutting that back to eight days. The old law allowed early voting on two Sundays before the election. The new law killed the second Sunday of voting. Sen. Joyne r s bill would ARTHENIA JOYNER State Senator also direct early voting to start 15 days before an elec tion. Current law sets the start date 10 days before the election. The bill would also require 12 hours of early voting each weekday and a total of 12 hours on the week-end Florida's current election law mandates at least six hours of voting a day. Florida's legislative ses sion starts next March. 26 Years Of Service Feed Our Children Ministries, Inc.

Local Group Meets With Police Tallscuss West Tampa Business 1ec111e c According to African American business owners business was thriving along Main Street prior to the Re publican National Conven tion coming to town. However, with the added security because of the con vention, Black business own ers in West Tampa quickly saw their revenues disap pearing, and they blamed in creased police patrols for scaring away patrons. Last Thursday, represen tatives of the West Tampa Community Group met with Tampa Police District One Commander, Major Paul Driscoll, to address their concerns, and get to the root of the problems. The group had concerns about the black-owned busi nesses along Main Street, and said they had suffered close to $soo,ooo in losses since police patrols were in creased along Main Street," said Maj. Driscoll. "I told them we have to respond to complaints, and we have a responsibility to the people of West Tampa. What was going on that night was described as a festival in the streets. There were peo ple gathered in the middle of the street, openly drinking al cohol and dancing to music coming from the clubs and a restaurant. One of the business own ers, Bernard Jordan, com plained that the people gathering weren't as big a problem as the fact that they weren't spending any money patronizing any of the busi nesses. They were just gath ering to party in the street." Maj. Driscoll said they asked the group to prepare a list of proplems they felt offi cers were contributing to. "We will evaluate them and see what we can do to fix what we can. I think it was a perfect storm that this hap pened during the occupation of the Occupy Tampa group on Main Street and the RNC coming to town. "As far as the South Howard area is concerned, we take action there as well, and we make sure things are under control. We are aware of the public drinking along the streets in the area, but everything is complaint driven and when we get com plaints, we have to act on them." One of the citizens in at tendance at the meeting was DWIGHT BOLDEN Dwight Bolden, who said he has no problem with the police doing their job. "We welcome law en forcement to come into our community whenever they have to. We want them to protect us the same as they do other areas. "Our problem is they are here constantly, even if a complaint hasn't been made. There's nothing going on along Main Street right now, but the police are still active, and can always be seen sit ting in their cruisers in park ing areas between Howard Avenue and Albany Avenue." Bolden said what upset him and people in the com munity was that they were told that the increased police patrols were to protect citi zens during the RNC Con vention and the Occupy Tampa group's activities. "However, when the con vention was over and the Oc cupy Tampa group had left, the police were still there. We believe the police were never there to protect us inasmuch as they were there to monitor what was going on with the businesses on Main Street." Bolden said he believes this was a tactic to prepare West Tampa for the develop ers that will be coming in to get their hands on the rede velopment of the area. Once you have busi nesses closing down, and after you devalue an area, all that's left is for these out siders to come in and take over. "If it weren't for a group of concerned citizens, the tac tic would have been successful. But, thanks to the Tampa Police Department and Councilman Frank Reddick, we feel we are finally being heard, and some things are happening." Bolden, and others at the meeting, felt things began to turn bad for the business owners immediately after a (') m ride-a-long Councilwoman m Yolie Capin had with =c Tampa Police. "I want it made clear that :u I never made a complaint :-I about what I saw during the ride-a-long. I actually wanted to walk and mingle with the people, but when I heard what sounded like gunshots, I changed my mind. "I can't say it was actually gunshots, because it really sounded like firecrackers at the time. But I saw people re acting to the sound, and they started leaving the area." Councilwoman Capin said she doesn't appreciate being made the scapegoat for the problems the business owners are enduring, and again says police presence in any area is complaint driven. "I don't know why people stopped going on Main Street after that, and I really have no explanation for why there ., has been a big drop in busi0 ness along that strip." :!! "It was just a coincidence that things happened the en night I had the ride-a-long that might have contributed :::! to the increased police pres-Z m ence, but it wasn't because of ,anything I did or said." m c r r m :::! z c m r--07 N.

ntertainment ::D Fuuees Rapper Pras Sues Director Considering Wyclef Jean's Yele Haiti issues and Lauren Hill's tax troubles, it was only a matter of time before Pras got in on the legal struggle, too. The third member of the Fugees is suing a director for $70,000+ in money the rapper/producer says he put down a few years ago out o f his own pocket to create a documentary about being al legedly kidnapped by Somali pirates According to legal docs filed Monday P .ras hired Marshall Tyler back in 2009 to direct a documentary film called Paper Dreams" about the rapper's real-lif e, death-defying incident with pirates off the East African coast. In the suit, Pras claims he was "taken captive" by Somali pirates sometime in 2009 however multiple reports say Pras, and his film crew, merely witnessed the famous capture of the Maersk Alabama in April2009. According to his lawsuit, Pras says he put up $7ok of his own money to cover film ing and travel expenses -but says after the footage was shot, Marshall failed to hand it over Swizz Beatz Buvs 150 Copies 01 Alicia Kevs' New Album Alicia Keys' Girl On Fire album d ropped last Tuesday (Nov. 27), and Beatz is responsible for a portion of her record sales for the week. Swizzy showed his lady the ultimate sign of support by going out and buying 150 copies of her new album. The super producer admit ted to being a fan of his wife via Twitter. "Ok I might get stan of the year award! So what! I just got 150 copies to give out 2 fans." Girl On Fire, Keys' fifth studio album, is expected to sell between 15o,ooo175,000 copies in its first week. Although a major drop from her fourth release The Element of Freedom which moved 417,000 units in a week, the numbers are re spectable by today's sales standards. The New York na tive may deth. rone Rihanna who is currently in the No. 1 spot on Billboard after her Unapologetic album sold nearly 240,000 last week. No matter the figures, one thing Keys can be thankful for is her supportive husband. "I swear I love this man with all of me!" she wrote.

The events could explain C why Belcher got into an a: argument with Kasandra u.. Perkins, the mother of their 3-month-old child, that pre c( ceded the murder suicide. Five hours before he shot c Perkins, Belcher was ques cn tioned by police when he was reported sleeping in a car out1side the other woman's apart it ment, police said Tuesday. w Police responded to a suspi Gj cious vehicle call about 2:50 0 a.m at an apartment complex w near downtown Kansas City, :::1: Missouri, where they found Belcher dozing in the car, m Sergeant Darin Snapp :::l said. a. Officers woke him up and asked what he was doing, w Snapp said. :::j Belcher said he was wait :::l ing for his girlfriend to come m home and didn't have the ..J door code number so he could w z not go inside, Snapp said. i= Belcher then called someone ffi on his cell phone and about en that time a woman came to c( the door of the apartment and 9 waved him in, Snapp said. a: Witnesses who live in the 0 ..J apartment told police later u.. that Belcher went to sleep there and at his request they woke him up at 6:30 a.m. so he could get to a Chiefs' team meeting by 9:30 a.m, Snapp said. Belcher returned to his home in Kansas City he shared with Perkins, 22, and the couple's 3-month-old daughter, police have said. The couple got into an argument and at 7=50 a.m. police responded to a call from the house and found Perkins shot dead in the master bed room. Belcher's mother. was at the house at the time of the shooting After the shooting Belcher kissed his wounded girlfriend on the forehead, kissed his daughter and apol ogized to his mother. Belcher fled in his Bentley to the practice facility, where he encountered Chiefs' General Manager Scott Pioli and other Chiefs' staff in the parking lot, police have said. Belcher then stepped out of his car with a handgun point ed at his head and said, "I did it, I killed her," Snapp said. Pioli tried to persuade Belcher to drop the weapon.

Members of the Kansas City Chiefs dressed in suits and ties after practice Wednesday and boarded a series of buses to attend a memorial service for Jovan Belcher, their teammate who was involved in a murder-suicide over the weekend The team moved up its practice schedule so that players could attend the 2 p.m. service at Landmark International Deliverance and Worship Center, a short drive from the team s practice facili ty Veteran offensive lineman Ryan Lilja said he hoped the memorial would provide some closure for the Chiefs, who will try to win their second straight game Sunday at Cleveland. Kobe Becomes Youngest To Reach 30,000 Points At 34, Kobe Bryant is the youngest to ever reach 30,ooo points. NEW ORLEANSKobe Bryant has become the youngest player in NBA histo ry to eclipse 30,000 career points and only the fifth over all to hit that mark. Bryant entered the elite scoring club during the first half of the Los Angeles Lakers' game against the New Orleans Hornets. He arrived in New Orleans 13 points short, and scored his 13th and 14th points on a short jumper with 1:16 to go in the first half. Because the basket came in the flow of play, there was hardly any reaction on the court as Bryant and his team mates ran back on defense. Bryant is 34. Wilt Chamberlain was 35 when he hit the mark, Kareem Abdui-Jabbar and Karl Malone were each 36 and Michael Jordan was 38. Nille Unveils lobe Brvanrs latest Sneaker KOBEBRYANf While most superstar bas ketball players wear simply a signature sneaker, Kobe Bryant rocks the "Kobe 8 System." Nike has unveiled their latest shoe designed specifically for Bryant and it contains the advanced tech you should expect.to find in the 4-time NBA champion's latest kicks. The Kobe 8 System is touted as being built on four pil lars; speed precision, vision and versatility. The result is the LA Lakers' lowest and lightest sneaker to date, weighing in at 9.6 ounces in a men's size nine. The snakeskin print is a homage to Kobe's nickname, the Black Mamba, as well as a nod to 2013 being the year of the snake in the Chinese calendar. Allen Iverson's Atlanta Mansion Foreclosed And Up For Auction ALLEN IVERSON'S MANSION Allen Iverson broke many ankles in the NBA, but can t catch a break when it comes to his finances. An Atlanta mansion the former NBA All-Star and MVP owns has been foreclosed and is being put up for auction. The home, which Iverson purchased back in 2010 for $4.5 million in 2010, was sold at auction on December 4th. According to records, A.I. defaulted on his mort-gage payments and the prop erty was foreclosed. The only way Iverson will be able to save his ATL crib, and all of its contents, from being sold was if he pays for it in all cash. But considering the VA native with the famed money troubles is in the midst of a bitter divorce and hasn't been dropping buckets on any pro basketball courts, that seems highly unlikely. Here's The Air Jordan DB Since Michael Jordan signed with Nike at the beginning of his illustrious career, his signature Air Jordan shoes have redefined the world of athletic footwear. Signature sneakers are now a major part of an athlete's global brand, and they also help change the course of casual fashion. Every release of a new version of the Jordans is a bas ketball event. Nike and Jordan Bra,nd released their latest incarnation, the Jordan XX8 (aka 28, for those of you don't recognize both Roman and Arabic numerals in the same construction) at an event in New York City. As you can see in the photo above it's a bold design that's already generating controversy. From the outside, the sneaker looks something like a rain zipper that encloses entire inside. Underneath, however, the dominant color is a distinct neon green. The shoes, devised by legendary Nike designer Tinker Hatfield over the course of two years, retail for a cool $250 and made their NBA debut on Tuesday night when .Russell Westbrook of the Oklahoma City Thunder plays against the Nets in Brooklyn. Nets' Wallace Fined $5,000 For Second Violation 11 Nil's And-FIOIIing PoliCJ The NBA has fined Nets forward Gerald Wallace $5,000 for his second viola tion of the league's anti-flopping policy on Wednesday.

The Vikings announced Harvin's move to injured reserve night, just over a month after tearing a ligament in his ankle in week 9's loss to the Seattle Seahawks. Harvin will finish the season with 62 receptions for 677 yards and three touch down grabs. The loss looms especially large for the Vikings, who have struggled developing a consistent aerial threat in Harvin's absence despite being out for the past three games, Harvin remains the Vikings' leading receiver. lues Still In The Hunt For A Plavon Spot c m (') m 3: rJJ If there's one thing you can count on, it's that you can't predict how an NFL season is going to tum out.

However, near ing the end of the regular season, the topsy-turvy world of professional football has again thJ,"own everything into a huge dryer to be sorted out later. The Tampa Bay Buccan eers, coming off two straight losses, are still in the hunt for a wild-card berth, and on Sunday, they will play host to the Philadelphia Eagles. The Eagles (3-9) were pro-m jected as the elite of the :a league at the beginning of the .:"" season, but since they have suffered tremendously. Michael Vick has been replaced as the starting quar terback, and it appears head coach Andy Reid, along with Vick, won't be a part of the organization next season The Buccaneers under first year head coach, Greg Schiano, have perf ormed well above expecta tions, and although they have suffered injuries at key posi tions, they have managed to keep pace with the NFC South.

"I've heard complaints about how some of the cur rent businesses in our community treat their customers, and we don' t deserve that.

With the support of her husband, Robert Jackson, Mrs. Jackson has not only found a way to accomplish these feats, but has also managed to attain a 3 79 GPA as a student at Keiser University. First, I have to give a lot of credit to my husband. Without his support, I don't think I would have been able to keep up.

West Tampa News West Tampa Group To Craft Their Own DevelOPment Plan BY LEON B. CREWS Sentinel Staft'Writer On Saturday, members of the West Tampa Commu nity Group met to discuss the drafting of their own de velopment plan for West Tampa. Tatiana Denson, an Administrative Assistant with the organization, said she along with Dr. Carolyn Collins (Hillsborough County NAACP President), Rev. Henry Lyons, business owner Bernard Jordan, John Bowden, and Dwight Bolden reviewed the plan of the West Tampa Chamber of Commerce, and de cided there was nothing in it they felt comfortable with in adopting it to their plan. "We felt as residents, business owners, and stake holders in West Tampa, we should have our own devel opment plan. If the West Tampa Chamber of Commerce can come up with what they want to do in West Tampa, we should be able to counter that with what we think needs to be done. "We feel the plan we're developing will be more in clusive than the one by the Chamber, and will repre sent the interests of all the people especially those who can barely make ends meet." Ms. Denson said indi viduals within the WTCG will be assigned specific areas of the plan to work on, and Dee Jackson will be creating a logo. "I will spearhead getting the Main Street strip desig nated as an historic land mark. "In our follow up meeting Wednesday, several details were ironed out, and every one had a lot of input. We want to have the plan com pleted before the New Year begins." DR. CAROLYN COLLINS NAACP President Ms. Denson said she suggested that a lot of em phasis be put on how con tracts are awarded for the redevelopment project. "We understand thete s a minority standard that the city has to meet, but we want more than that. We want guarantees that there will be Black sub-contrac tors and laborers on any and all projects. TATIANA DENSON "We also want to work along with the West Tampa Chamber to oversee these contracts before they are granted to make sure there is inclusion. Dr. Collins said at this point, they are monitoring, meeting, and preparing to come up with something for the people of West Tampa. "At this point, I have to wonder why we would give 0 m 3: m m :::rJ someone suggestions on changing their plan, when they ignored us when they developed it? My concerns are not to reveal what our intentions are at this time. I N think it would be beneficial to us to not talk about what we want. I did analyze the West Tampa Chamber's plan, and my main concern is how their plan will change the voting dynamics of West Tampa." Dr. Co11ins said Mayor Bob Buckhorn is the voice of the people, but he needs to make sure they have a voice as well. "The NAACP is con cerned with sitting down ad discussing ay redevelop ment plans with the person "TT elected to represent their r interests. "When it comes to discussions about the future of en West Tampa, we expect the m mayor to bring all the right people to the table." z m r m c r r z c m c C/) re lnuited ::::1: m c m < m Mayor Bob Buckhorn, Tampa Housing Authority and the Bank of America Community Development Corporation would like to Invite you to a few monumental Encore events.

...: a: w m ::.IE w 0 w Q weare onaln Christ There are many people who spend a lot of their time in church, but who still do not practice a basic ,but powerful component of the Christian faith. It was once said that church service is one of the most segregated hours in the world. Church should not be a place of separation, but rather togetherness. In the days of the biblical times, people were sepa rated based upon race of Jew or Gentile. Today, we are still separated by race (Black, White, or Latino), but also by denomination. esians 2:11-22, is his at tempt to show that all peo ple who believe in Christ are unified and there is a separation. The people got converted and once con verted failed to remember their beginning. Paul's letter to the c church in Ephesus, Eph-He admonishes them to remember that before they were considered Gentiles and uncircumcised by those who were circumcised (vs. 11). This should serve as a notice to all those who are born again that they were once sinners. People must oftentimes remember that they were once in darkness until the light shined on them in their life. 0: u.

Before their conversion and adoption into the fam ily of God, people were out cast and had nowhere to reside. They had no real or true family of God. The promises made to genera tions did not apply to them and they could not partake of the blessings and pro mises made. That sums up your life before Christ.

Your former life was a distant glance of God, but now, you are in close relationship to Him. This has nothing to do with race, creed, national ity, socio-economic group ing or denominations; it is all because of the blood of Jesus. The same blood that saved a black man saved a white man. The same blood that made it possible for a Republican to be re deemed was the same blood that delivered a Democrat. Christ is our peace and it is He who has broken down the wall of separation (vs. 14). If Jesus saw it neces sary to destroy the wall that separated you from the Fa ther, what makes you think that He will allow the wall to remain that separates the Father's children. Jesus broke, is breaking, and will break any wall that is built or established to IIP1IST .............. t-R.a.a ltm2tt-1JM cause a separation within the body. Christ did what He did to reconcile all as one body (vs. 16). How can people who still look at the flesh of a man and see race, but not the blood of Jesus be recon ciled to God as one? The Christian church is one body and must stand before God as one. Jesus died for all and all must die for Him. The death people must die is that of doctrines and made developed beliefs that separate the body. Because of His works all have access to the Father by the one Spirit (vs. 18). There is but one Spirit and that one Spirit gives all of God's people access to Him. We must realize that we are all one in the Spirit and by the Spirit. You are not what you once were, you are now a part of a family that has been bought with the blood of Jesus and sealed by the Holy Ghost. ..., ... ,.__ _____ 1:151 ........

Local E:vents Park To HoSt Plans Underwav For Old ; Holidav Program Fashion Gospel Explosion i :a BY GWEN HAYES Sentinel Editor Mary Blake is employed by the City of Tampa Parks and Recreation Department But, that's not all she does. Mrs. Blake, a wife and mother, finds time to also serve as a community activist -helping people on all levels; that's what she enjoys. Her employment causes for her to work closely with children; that, too, is what she enjoys. She is always thinking of ways that the community can share their profession or expertise with the children at Copeland Park. Their Black History Month Program is usually held before standing room only crowds. Mrs. Blake and the staff at Copeland Park are now preparing for the 2012 Holi day Program. The event will be held on Friday, December 14th, 7 p. m. The park is lo cated at 11001 N. 15th St. For a nominal fee, vendors can also display their wares. Mrs. Blake is excited about the performance of ReMARY BLAKE .. Coordinator vealing Truth Drumline and Choir that will be among this year's participants. Others that have confirmed their participation are Blake High School Sign of the Time (sign group), Tampa Boyz, L. Williams and Judah Divine, Godchild and GM, Girl Wonder and other choirs, praise dancers, step teams, recording artists and more. There will also be a fash ion show. Bishop-Elect Michelle B. Patty and Arthur the Comic will serve as Mistress and Master of Ceremonies. day, December 9, 2012 4:00PM 24th Avenue, Tampa, FL A number of gospel groups along with St. John Cathedral Mass Choir are planning an Old Fashioned Watch Night Service for Monday, December 31, 2012. The group was inspired to pull this event together be cause "we have gotten away from having the late-night services like we used to enjoy in the past," states Marie Miller, one of those in volved with planning the program. During the times when (the late) Willie Banks and the Messengers would come to Tampa and be the featured group, people would stay at their home church for Watch Night Serv ices, then head to the pre planned location to enjoy gospel singing into the early morning hours even to the break of dawn. "We also had several local groups that would also per form," Mrs. Miller stated. Some of Tampa's own that also performed were the late David Miller, Hosey Neal, Mother Eddie M. Jackson, Maude Jackson and many others. "So we're bringing back a spirit-filled Watch Night Service this year like we used to have. This is an open invi tation to the community to celebrate a brand new year that the Lord has allowed us to see." The Gospel Explosion will be held at St. John Cathedral, 3401 25th Ave. after the reg ular Watch Night Service. Slated to appear on program are: Mighty Traveling Stars, Exciting Gospel Warriors, Gramps and the Golden Harps, Tampa Boyz and the St. John Mass Choir. There is a small admittance fee and proceeds will benefit the church. The Open Cafe will be open for breakfast. For additional informa tion, contact Marie Miller (813) 626-5601. ;-1 N 0 ..... N

FAMUSTAR ffi FAMU Freshman Continues To heel After Inventing Surgical Technique At Age 14 U.. His method for sewing up c a: IJ.. c z < c U) w ::J ... hysterectomy patients a sta ple at Shands Jacksonville Medical Center TALLAHASSEE -Tony D. Hansberry is not your aver age college freshman. Perceived at as a ch ild prodigy after developing an inno v ative suture method that d ecreases hospital stay and increases efficiency during operations for hysterec tomi es, the then 14-year-old said he just wanted to bring a prize back home from the sci ence fair "Peo ple think I'm a genius," Hansberry said. "It' s not that at all, I just lik e medicine. Hansberry, a freshman bio-medical e ngineering student at Florida A&M University (FAMU), said after winning in the science fair in the eighth grade, he teamed up with an adminis trator at Shands Hospital to create the innovative surgical > procedure. Hansberry has ffi continued his education in > the field that caught his interW est early on as a child. Unlike most students, the J: 18-year-old _Hansberry was no stranger to the hills of FAMU.

Hansberry, like other first-time students, said he continues to learn how to bal ance school and extracu rricu lar activities while he main tains his good grades "Make sure you know the priorities of school before you join any organization," Hansberry said. Being a full time student and freshman class senator requires a lot of time and networking, but Hansberry said he knows it is something he can master. Hansberry said he was torn about changing his major from bio-medical engi neering to chemistry, but now finds comfort in knowing that he has a clear definition of what he wants to pursue for the longevity of his career. "I want to become a trauma surgeon," Hansberry said. Hansberry acknowledges that the career he has chosen requires dedication, plenty of studying and long nights, but he has the drive and will to get there. "I don't know how I'm going to get there, I just know I will, Hansberry said. FAMU Celebrates Its 125th Anniversarv Recently, Florida A & M University held its Legacy Torch and traveled to Tampa.

INCLUDING HEATHEASE, WELL CARE AND STAYWEll Nablral Remedies For Bone And Joint Pain Epsom Salt Soak A classic remedy for any muscle or joint ache is a re laxing bath with Epsom Salts. High in magnesium and sulfates, they are easily ab sorbed through the skin to provide quick relief and re duce inflammation. Add two cups of salts to warm bathwater and soak for at least twenty minutes. Hot And Cold Packs For immediate joint pain, try a hot and cold approach. Apply a hot therapeutic gel pack to the affected area for twenty minutes. Immediately follow up with a cold ice pack for another twenty. If you can't stand the severity of ice, let it thaw out while you are applying heat. Even a chilled pack will bring relief. Exercise Stiff muscles can cause joint pain elsewhere in the body. For example, tension in the leg muscles can be re sponsible for stress on the knees and hips. Exercise will strengthen and stretch the affected mus cles, reducing pain and in flammation. The stronger the muscles and joints become the better the chances are of avoiding future injuries. Weight Loss Carrying around extra pounds puts unnecessary strain on your joints and bones. If you suffer from a bone disease, such as osteoporosis, being overweight can accel erate degeneration. Even shedding just a few pounds can ease pain and prevent against future prob lems. Supplements In addition to a healthy diet, one or more of the fol lowing supplements may help prevent bone and joint problems: Calcium Bones and teeth need calcium but the body cannot produce it natu rally. Vitamin D The body cannot absorb enough cal cium without adequate amounts of vitamin D. Fish, eggs and sunlight are the best natural sources. When choosing a supplement, seek out vitamin D3 as it is the same form obtained through sun exposure. liP Care Routine Here are a few tips for keeping your puckers kissably soft: Hydration Cracked lips are the first sign of dehydration. If you've been a little laxed on drinking water regularly, you might want to jump back on the horse and get your fill to bring back the moisture. Our bodies are made up of 70 percent water and when we don't get enough of it our skin tells all Be diligent about staying hydrated and you11 notice the immediate differ ence in your lips, not to men : tion your hair and skin. Sugar scrub Our skin cells renew every 28 to 32 days, shedding dead skin and revealing fresh, new skin underneath. Slough away dead skin to help speed up the process while also making sure that your moisturizing ef forts are effectively treating Ps FLOIUDA COAST PHMriiCY new skin. Sugar scrubs are great ways to gently wipe away peeling skin from the lips. Mix a few sprinkles of sugar or brown sugar with a teaspoon of olive oil and gently wipe away the debris. You can also find solutions at the beauty counter. Moisture Stick to natural lip balm in gredients that are known for their moisturizing properties. Jojoba, coconut, hemp seed and peppermint oils are per fect for coating the lips with an extra layer of protection.

Health If You're Diabedc, ae Aware Of Your Action Here are 15 tips for living a healthier life with diabetes: Don't assume that you'll feel bad when your blood sugar is getting high. Don't wait until it's bad enough to cause symptoms. Get enough sleep. Allow for 7-9 hours of sleep a night. If you're always overtired, talk to your doctor. Treat cuts and injuries immediately. Be sure to keep an eye on the injury. If you see signs of infection, call your doctor Control stress, which can cause your blood sugar to rise. Exercise regularly. Most experts suggest at least 150 minutes of exercise a week spread out over three days. Keep your weight under control. It's easy to get discouraged if you have a lot of weight to lose. But small steps will make a difference Losing weight also will im prove your blood pressure, re duce your risk of heart disease, and boost the effec tiveness of insulin. Be aware of how diabetes can affect pregnancies. The key is good control of blood sugar levels both dur ing and before pregnancy. To prepare, meet with your doc tor three to six months before you start trying to conceive. Realize that if you catch the flu, you're more likely to be sicker from it. So pro tect yourself. During cold and flu season, wash your hands more often and use an alco hol-based hand sanitizer when you're not near a sink. Aim for no more than a teaspoon of sodium a day. Reducing salt isn t as simple as taking the salt shaker off the table (although that's a good idea.) You also need to cut down on processed foods which tend to be chock full of salt. When cooking, try using herbs to add flavor to your food instead of salt. Watch your fruit intake. In general, opt for smaller pieces of fruit and choose whole fruit over juices. Also, control servings of starchy vegetables, such as potatoes, yams, peas, and corn. Don't assume what you can and can't eat. Keep in mind that many "diabetic" candies and other sweets, which are sugar-free, still have calories and carbs that can af fect your blood sugar. Ea.t healthy fats. Swap a handful of almonds high in healthy fats for a slice of cheese. Choose salmon in stead of a burger. Moderation is still important because even healthy fats are high in calo ries. Wear comfortable shoes as often as possible. You don't necessarily need to buy special orthopedic "dia betes shoes." But invest in good shoes and sneakers that fit well and have enough room, especially in the toe box. Every night before bed, check your feet for any new sores, blisters, or irritation.

While such deci sions include terminating life support, the surrogate is specifically limited to health care and medically related mat ters. Surrogacy can be activated when a family member or loved one becomes temporarily unconscious, confused, or unable to communicate medical de sires. A healthcare surrogate typically has the power to au thorize routine medical tests and surgery. This document will effec tively allow timely permission and consent so that proper care can be provided. It is important for the care recipient to execute this document while mentally alert to have the capacity to grant or transfer such a power to another person. The document should also include a HIP AA statement, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996. The law was created to protect a patient's medical information and records from being re leased with written permission. A HIPPA Release authorizes all healthcare providers to re lease information to the health care surrogate when the patient is unable to make medical deci sions. Having this document saves time and money by providing the surrogate with access to records he or she would nor mally need a court order to ob tain. Living Will A living will is a document that allows a person to express their wishes concerning life support if a he or she becomes incapacitated. The basic pur PQse of a living will is to make a decision, in advance, whether or not life will be prolonged by life-support methods. Because family members may not agree on the best course of action, it is best to make personal wishes known, not only orally, but also in writing. A living will sets forth the conditions under which life Revocable (Living) Trust Most people assume trusts are established for the very wealthy and the average person does not need a trust. This assumption does not necessarily apply to a revocable trust. Unlike a will, which comes effective only after death a rev ocable trust is effective while still alive. Through a revocable trust, decisions about how property is managed before and after death can be made. The conditions of the trust vary on an individual basis and can in clude decisions that determine the age children can receive as sets, require certain behaviors Oike attending college) limit payout provisions to beneficiar ies, and provide protection against beneficiary creditors. If handled properly, a revo cable trust can eliminate the need to probate. Phyllis Smith J.D., LL.M. is an associate professor in the College of Law at Florida A&M University.

Today I want to encourage you to BUY BLACK during this holiday season. Why, you may ask? The reason is that you have the power to keep a Black business alive and thriving. Your money is the heart that pumps blood into a Black business and the Black community. For we know. that when the heart stops the body dies. If we become solely dependent on others outside of the Black community to keep us alive, we will soon die So your money spent in your community with your people could very well be the lifeline needed to revive us. Your money could cause a surge in Black economic development. Your money could help bring down the Black unemployment rate. Your money empowers more Blacks to become success ful.

Coon Dis $1M School Racial Harassment Award NEW YORK One of the biggest awards ever issued for racial harassment in high school -$1 million was upheld Monday by a federal appeals panel that said it was fair for a jury to conclud e a school district should have done more t o stop dem eaning, threatening and violent conduct dir ected at a student. The decision by the 2nd U. S Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan left in place the award for Anthony Zeno, a former student at Stissing Mountain High School in Dutchess County. The award had been reduced from the $1.25 million a jury originally awarded the now 23 -yearold haircutter during a 2010 trial. The appeals court said the award wasn t unreasonable given that payouts for harassment in similar cases have ranged from the low six figures to $1 million in one other instance.
