Looking back, Mr. Kinsey said there have been many improvements made in East Tampa, especially creating the Tax Increment Finance (TIF) and bringing employment and business opportunities to the area. "The TIF allowed us to rebuild East Tampa and bring in dollars the area sorely missed. It will continue to enable us to rebuild the area and make it a SAMKINSEY viable place for residents and businesses.

Mayor Iorio said when the City of San Antonio began their national search, "They approached him because he is nationally knO\vn and such a star in his field." She said McCary told her about the offer and th;it he would talk with San Antonio. She also said McCary is a larger jurisdiction.

In spite of her affliction, she taught him to be tough and strong. Now, McCall finds himself having to pass that advice on to his son. On Tuesday while riding his bicycle near 127th Avenue and 15th Street, Tavares Miller, 17, was shot in the back by someone in a passing car. He was taken to a local hospital, and his father said the prognosis is that he. wiU be pennanently paralyzed McCall said Miller was attending Chamberlain Adult. School, and really wanted to become a professional fighter. "He decided what he wanted to do when he \\'as about 11 or 12. He loved to fight, so we decided he might as well earn a living from it. "He had started training, but got distracted and into a little trouble. However, he was looking forward to returning, but didn't have a chance to get started." Miller lost his grandmother, Myrtle McCall, known to the fah1ily as "Lady Di," two months ago from cancer. "He was very close to his grandmother. He took that very hard." McCall said when his son was first hospitalized, he talked to him. "At first, he was upset and wanted revenge. But when he realized he wouldn't walk again, he got sentimental and broke down. This is going to be a tough time for both of us. ;;Itold him thi!lgs happen for a reason, and there's a lesson to be learned from everything that happens to you : I hope he understands this message and realizes he can still enjoy life."

. SPORTS Baseball Fans Talk About Bonds Breaking Record In June 1982, Barry Bonds was drafted out of Arizona State University by the San Francisco Giants. He didn't sign with them, and in June was selected as the 6th pick in the first round by the Pittsburgh Pirates. On October, 26, 1992, he was granted free agency and he signed with the Giants December 8, 1992. That's how the career of Barry Bonds began. Area baseball fans were asked how they felt when Barry Bonds broke Hank Aaron's all-time homerun record with his 756th homerun Monday night (he's since hit757J. Former high school baseball coach Billy Reed: "I'm glad it's over. It's an amazing feat. I hate to see the Cloudy situation over it. It kind of tarnishes it, but it's still a record and he should be congratulated." HILLY REED co a Cii Reed said 'he remembers when Bonds was at anC:l how much he's changed s ince then. "There are a lot of baseball players toda.v who arc suspect. keep pointing at Bonds all the time is beyond me. "I think what's really hurt Bonds is his disposition toward the media, the fans, and even some of his teammates. He tends to isolate himselffrom everyone." Coach Reed said he thinks Bonds .will pLiy another year, but not for the Giants. "I don't think the Giants will re-sign him. He'll probably .go to an American League team." BILLY FELDER Former Negro League star, Billy Felder: "I'm happy for him. So many are against him. At his age, it's even more remarkable. I don't think baseball is treating him fair, however. "I think Selig (Comn1issioner Bud Selig) and Aaron should have been at the park. No matter what, he will go into the Hall of Fame. F .elder said Babe Ruth \Vas an alcoholic, but no one talks about that. 'With almost two months to play, Bonds i sgoing to put the record out of reach I think he'll try it one more THE OF CAMPBELL, STEWART, TWINE year before he quits for good. "Some will look back on this and think it's a great achievement. I was watching television when he tied and broke the record. When he swung, he knew that ball was gone." Kim Mallard and son, James Mallard, Jr. Kim Mallard, mother of James Mallard, Jr., Middleton senior and baseball phenom: "I'm proud of him. None of the allegations about him using steroids has been proven. What it all comes down to is you still have to hit the ball. "Overall, I think baseball has been-fair to him, because they scrutinize all the players. Being famous makes you vulnerable to those kinds of attacks. He's had a lot of pressure on him this year because of the record, and I think he handled it well." Belmont Heights Little League Director, Artis Gambrell, Jr.: "I think this is a monumental achievement. I think 'it's a great accomplishment to have happened in my lifetime.

The site of the fight has not b8en determined, Golden Boy Promotions said Wednesday. It's a matchup of two undefeated fighter.s, who are a combined 81-0. "I am extremely excited to announce Golden Boy's involvement in another boxing extravaganza such as Mayweather vs. Hatton," said Oscar De La Hoya, president of Golden Boy Promotions. "We are proud to continue to provide fans with the best matchups and fights in boxing today." Mayweather (38-0 with 24 knockouts) will be fighting for the first time since his victory over De Hoya in May. "I am the best fighter in boxing today and I'm prepared for any challenge my team puts in front of me," Mayweather said. "And with Ricky Hatton, it's already personal.

FAMUCiose To H iring New Law Dean Although trustees must okay the candidate, Florida A&M University's troubled law school is dose to naming a new dean. It was announced that Leroy Pernell, currently the law dean at Northern Illinois University, has accepted FAMU's offer. All that waits is approval from the board of trustees. On Tuesday, Northern Illinois created confusion when a news release was issued, saying Pernell will assume the deanship of the Orlando campus in January.

In other words stop doing the wrong things and start doing the right things. If the path you are on is leading you away from God, turn around! God gives His word that if a person turns around the sins that were committed will not b e remembered (vs. 22). God will not remember the sins and the wickedness you have done in your life if you stop doing them. There is a reason and a les son for all to learn. He will not remember the bad because the good is worth more. The wickedness is not as valuable as the righteous ness. The lesson for everyone is that when a person turns from their wicked behavior we must learn to not remember it and focus on the good and the righteousness. The wickedness will kill you.

Seffner, FL 33584 HEALTH Black Floridians Should Be Tested For Colon Cancer Testing for colon cancer can prevent cancer and save lives, according to the American Cancer Society. Colon cancer almost always starts with a polyp, and tests can find and remove polyps early on, before they become cancerous. Colon cancer can't be prevented unless people get tested, and not enough Floridians get tested each year. Colon cancer is the second most common cause of cancer death in the United States. In Florida's black community, nearly 900 men and women will be diagnosed and more than 400 will die of the disease each year. Testing can find polyps early so they can be removed before they turn cancerous," says John Chaperon, president and chair man of the board' of the American Cancer Society, Florida Division. This can help us defeat a major cancer killer by preventing it altogether." Colon cancer is usually preventable, and it's also very treatable when caught early When the disease is found at an early stage, the five-year sur vival rate is approximately 90 percent. In Florida, less than two-thirds of men and women get tested when they should. Because testing rates are so low, only 39 percent of colon Colon cancer tests are as cancers are discovered at the important as yearly Pap tests, earliest, most curable stage mammograms or prostate Everyone age 50 and older is exams, so patients shouldn't be at risk for colon cancer, re gardafraid to ask, if doclessofgenderorfamilyhistory. tors don't mention testing The American Cancer Society options first. recommends men and women For patients new to Medicare, age so or older talk to their the "Welcome to Medicar(' doctors about getting a test. benefit provides an opportunity warning signs like bleeding or to learn about the variety of cramping may only appear in available colon testing options. later stages when treatment To learn more about colon may be less effective, so people cancer, visit www.cancer.org, shouldn't wait for symptoms to or call 1-Soo-ACS-2345, 24 occur before getting tested. .. hours a d ay, seven days a week.

HEALTH I Make It Through Menopause Naturally I PART I Menopause will affect all women eventually, with most being in their forties and fifties when symptoms appear. Concerns regarding traditional hormone replacement therapy have led many women to seek more natural alternatives for relief. Keep in mind every woman s needs will be differ ent and finding what works for you may take a little time. Also, finding a healthcare professional willing to work with you while on this journey is invaluable. In addition to the unwanted temporary symptoms of hot flashes and shifting moods, more serious health concerns can arise Declining estrogen levels can increase the risk of developing heart disease and osteoporosis, but making the appropriate diet and lifestyle changes can help reduce these risks -Your diet and supplement regimen should include ade quate calcium, vitamin D and magnesium for bone building. Menopausal women should strive for 1000-1500 mg of calcium per day and at least 400 IU of vitamin D. Besides aiding bone health, vitamin D may help reduce the risk of colon and breast cancer a nd also supports healthy blood pressure levels. Exercise should be a part of every woman's menopause arsenal. Not only does it help boost heart and bone health, but also it can help prevent menopause-related weight g a in, hot flashes boost mood and improve sleep. Eating a die t that promotes overall heart health is vital and should include plenty of fruits, veggies whole grains, nuts, legumes and fish. The phytoestrogens present in soy help reduce cholesterol and may help ease hot flashes, although study results vary. These phytoestrogens convert to estrogen-like substances in the body and can also be found in flaxseed, rye, chick peas lentils and whole grains. Too much soy may affect thy roid function in some,but 1-2 servings a day of whole-food soy products (soy nuts, tempeh, edamame, etc.) may pro vide some benefits. Women with a h i story of breast cancer should consult with their doc tor before taking concentrated supplements of soy. Some herbs and supplements being used by women during menopause include the following DR.

S'heap Live Blue Crabs A FEW TRICKS OF THE TRADE 1 Rim Your Glass -Rimming your glass is an easy way to add texture and flavor to a cocktail. You can rim a glass with just about anything from kosher salt to sugar to cocoa powder to crushed graham cracker crumbs: Be sure to match the flavors on the rim to the flavors in the drink. And if you're planning on serving a crowd, we recommend that you rim your glasses in advance. Not only does this-free up your time to focus on other things, but exposure to air helps the rim garnish stay put. 2. Get Creative with Garnishes -While the single olive garnish of a ma rtini is justifiably a classic, a martini can also be garnished with, for example, a caperberry, or a blue-cheese-stuffed olive. Once you venture into pickled onion territory, however, the drink is no longer considered a martini -in that case, it's a Gibson. 3 Just Add Herbs -Freeze lresh herbs like cilantro, rosemary, or basil into ice-cube trays and use them to garnish Rosemary's great perfect with sweet drinks; cilantro's ideal in a Bloody Mary 4.--Tty a Twist of Cifl:us -In addition to being highly : ttie oils from citrus 'peels are. highly flammable. :you squeeze a twist over a and into a drink, you'rEl left :witn rich, caramelized flavors --as a unique presentation. be-. c 'areful!

. LOCAL Business Donates $500 To Haitian Hosp _ital -Mrs. Joan Woody is shown writing the $500 check for the Pignon Hospital in Haiti. Among the many needs of the people of Haiti is that of medical supplies. Locally, some people have dedicated themselves to helping to provide medical supplies and other necessities for th e people of th e country After learning of the work of Missionary Ruth Hodges, her son Keto Hodges, Rhodes Scholar Garrett-Johnson, Dr. Guy Theodore, of the University of South Florida, and many oth-ers, a St. Petersburg funeral home made a monetary donation to the effort. Mr;s. Joan Woody, of Woody's Funeral Home, donated $soo to the Pignon Hospital. The 6g-bed facility does not receive any government assistance and is in need of medication, medical supplies, and other items. Dr. Theodore is the hos pital administrator. Earlier this year, Garrett Johnson donated $1,000 to To School Shopping Here with. STOP SHOPPING! Including Dickie School Uniform -.. Pant.s, Shorts a Shirts a School SU1DDilies the Christian Mission and Pignon Hospital. Keto Hodges donated $400 and continues to donate $50 each month. Mrs. Woody said, "My husband and I have always supported missions. Recently we were made aware of the dire need of medical supplies for the care of the thousands who come to Pignon Hospital for treatment. Since we are not ab l e to travel to Haiti, we are willing to share the financial responsibility of the hospital Mrs. Woody said. For more than 20 years, Mrs. Hodges has traveled to Haiti bringing food, clothing, and donations to improve the. lives of Haitian citizens. Mrs. Hodges embarked upon her latest trip to the island earlier this month. She said donations are alwa y s in need because unlike in America parents must pay for their children to attend school.
