N 0 ISAAC HENRY BAKER ..... truck's driver reported to be in serious condition. The Florida Highway Patrol reports that an early Thursday morning accident has left an 18-year-old with fatal injuries. According to their report, a truck driven by Isaac Henry Baker, 24, was traveling on Dale Mabry near Stall Road. Troopers said Baker failed to maintain control of his vehi cle, swerved to the left, and struck the curb/center grass median area. When the truck collided with the median, it overturned into the southbound lanes. Troopers said the teenager and 20-year-old Beqjamin Fowler were riding in the rear bed of the truck and were ejected onto the rod as the truck overturned The 18-year old was pronounced dead at the scene. Fowler was reported to be unresponsive when he was transported to St. Joseph s Hospital, and was last reported to be in critical condition. After the initial crash, troopers said a second vehicle, driven by Joyce Baker, 58, was traveling south on Dale Mabry and struck the 18-yearold who was lying in the center lane. Three other passengers in the truck, Rose Torres, 35, Elijah Bates, 22, and Allen Pitts, 22, are reported to be in serious condition. Cary Glenn Davis, 35, also a passenger in the truck, received minor injuries and was not hospitalized. FHP spokesperson, Sgt. Steve Gaskins, said they have learned that everyone in the truck had been at the Hard Rock Casino, and were being dropped off by Baker. He also said it appears alcohol may have been a factor in the acci dent. PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA This Friday (today) President Barack O bama will visit Tampa before heading to Colombia for the Summit of the Americas. This will be the president's second trip to Florida in a week. President Obama will cover an array of topics during his visit, but the focal p oint will be the "Buffet Rule." The B uffet Rule is a pro posal that would require the wealthy to pay at least 30% of their income in taxes. The presidents visit will also kick off a nationwide push by De mocrats on an election year issue that Republicans are call ing class warfare. The rule is named after bil lionaire, Warren Buffet, who was quoted last year say ing he pays a smaller tax rate than his secretary. In discussing the Buffet Rule, Democrats feel it is also a way to remind voters about Republican leader, Mitt R omney's wealth, and that he paid a tax rate of 13.9% in 2010. ..... N The Senate is to vote on the Buffet Rule this month but it's likely to die with almost uni., versal opposition from Repubb licans. ::2 The president's visit is not c open to the public, and no in)lo formation was released on where he will be speaking. z ::j Child, 1, Crushed Bv Apartment Parkinu. lot Gate z m r-aJ c: r r m ::j z At 7:22a.m. Wednesday, Tampa Police were called to 5008 Sierra Place on a report of a gate falling on a child.

She was arrested on July 2, 2010, shortly after Dontae Morris, 26, surrendered to police. Morris was charged with two counts of first-degree murder in the deaths of two Tampa Police officers. Ms. Brantley was driving the car police stopped the night of the shooting. After the shooting, she fled the scene. Attorney Irvin originally represented Ms. Brantley and successfully argued that evidence did not support the federal government's position that Ms. Brantley failed to report to police that Morris was a convicted felon in pos session of a firearm. U.S. Dis trict Judge James Moody dismissed the charged against Ms. Brantley. However, the Appellate Court overturned the dis missal.

Jovner And Reed, An Unbeatable Duo Tenacity and common sense are well-deserved labels for both State Senator Arthenia Joyner (D-Tampa) and State Representative Betty Reed (D-Tampa). Since both have been in office, the citizens of Tampa and the voters of Florida have benefited from Joyner and Reed's "Do the Right Thing" attitude. Most recently, their initiative bas paid off when Governor Scott signed Senate Bill524 (the Incarcerated Women Act), which prohibits the shackling of expectant mothers during childbirth. Readers may recall a quietly kept, yet, commonly. observed habit of cuffing and shackling female prison inmates during moments of childbirth. Human Rights representatives railed at-what they called inhumane actions during a woman's.most vulnerable situation. Though certain state legislators and prison officials disagreed with such accusations, thanks to Senator Joyner and Representative Reed, the State of Florida was forced to rethink its traditions as the shackling of women inmates during labor became a world-spotlight issue. Finally, a governor not known for sensitivity did the right thing by signing a bill, which would protect pregnant prison inmates. Once again, we, the people of Tampa and the state of Florida thank Senator Joyner and Representative Reed for not being afraid to stand for justice and for humanity. Come Election Day, not forget their tireless support. The Truth About Gas Prices And $20 Billion Oil Promeerlna Whenever we see television commercials blaming President Obama for high gasoline prices, we bristle at the blatant lie that voters are being fed. The truth is, President Obama has tried to reduce America's dependency on oil by escalating America's pursuit of renewable and clean energy sources that will reduce America's dependency on oil and will bring prices down. What puzzles us is why certain. people believe otherwise as if the truth was a veiled secret. It is not a secret by any means. President Obama has sought to end America's $4 billion tax subsidies for the $20 billion oil and gas industry before be was elected. And guess where President Obama's greatest opposition to remove the tax subsidies and escalating development of clean energy sources has come from? If you guessed gas and oil industry lobbyists, Republican senators, and representatives, and a few Democrats who sided with Republicans, you would be correct. Indeed, these pro-subsidies supporters of the oil industry have resisted the repeal of tax breaks for the largest oil companies while championing education, Medicare, and social security cuts for both the young and elderly. We urge voters to check the facts instead of believing the PAC groups and politicians who have shown to be the proven foes of young, and elderly. TRAYVON MARTIN ... Shot and killed on February 26 in Sanford, FL BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel City Editor On Wednesday evening, the family of a slain teenager learned that the man who has admitted to killing him :will be prosecuted. Special Prosecutor Angela Corey released the information during a 6 p.m. press conference. Attorney Corey said that George Zimmerman, 28, was in police custody and that a capias for second-degree murder had been issued. She stated that Zimmerman will be afforded a bond hearing, but she was not sure when it would take place. Zimmerman is being held without bond until the hearing. However, Attorney CoreY declined to say where, other than he is in Florida. On February 16th, 17-year old Trayvon Martin was visiting in Sanford. He had gone to the store and was returning to his father's girlfriend's resi dence in a gated community. Martin was confronted by Zimmerman, a Neighbor hood Watch volunteer. Zimmerman called 9-1-1 and reported a suspicious person and was told to remain in his vehicle. He made a second 9ANGELA COREY ... Special Prosecutor Assigned to Trayvon Martin case 1-1 call and was told not to ap proach the person and that a police officer had been dis patched. Zimmerman disregarded the instructions, approached the teenager and became involved in a physical confrontation. Zimmerman admitted to shooting the teenager once in the chest with a 9 .mm handgun. The teenager died at the scene. The Sanford Police Depart ment interviewed Zimmerman, but declined to arrest him. Martin was not armed and carrying a bag of Skittles and a can of Arizona Tea. He had been wearing a hoodie be cause it had started raining as he was returning from the store. His death sparked protests nationally and inter nationally. After the story made na tional Governor Rick Scott assigned Attorney Corey as a special prose cutor. The Department of Justice is also conducting an independent investigation. Attorney Corey, who was assigned to investigate by Governor Rick Scott said, "I spoke with Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin be fore this press conference and MRS. CAROLYN SPOTFORD WILLIAMS Cousin ofTrayvon Martin told them of our decision. We did not come to this decision lightly." She further stated that much of the information re leased in the case should not have been released. Earlier this week, Attorney Corey decided not to convene a Grand Jury hearing which was scheduled for Tues day. During the press confer ence, she said she had decided to file the charge of second-de gree murder last week. But she needed several days to make sure all of the details were in order. Mrs. Carolyn Spotford Williams lives in Tampa and is the first cousin of Trayvon Martin's grandmother, Mrs. Marion Spotford Evans. When contacted by the Sentinel, Mrs. Spotford Williams said she had learned of the decision prior to the press conference. "We are happy and thank Angela Corey for doing such a good job. We know that we have a long way to go through the process. "Just knowing that they are holding him (Zimmerman) makes us feel better. The Lord will take I care of everything," Mrs. Y' Spotford Williams said. )It


Young Dummies I believe it would be best if I started this column off with a disclaimer. Something along the lines ofletting it be known that I'm not a propo nent of criminal behavior. And that I'm writing this, not as a convicted felon trying to promote illicit activity, but more as a casual observer who's able to recognize when someone who commits a crime doesn't have a clue. Case in point. Last week I read in the paper where 3 young men were arrested after being set up by the Tampa Police Department during a drug buy. Of course, people getting >busted in drug stings is far iCC from uncommon. But the 9 part that really bugged me ff about the story was that, Q according to the police Z reports, when the qfficers searched their car they found iC( $43,165 in tax return checks 5J and another $6oo,ooo on 67 w ::::) ..... tax turbo cards. Now I have never pro claimed to be the most street-smart dude. But, for the life of me, I can't figure out why, with almost $7oo,ooo dollars at their disposal, were these knuck leheads trying to buy or sell drugs in the first place? It seems obvious that they had already come across more than enough change to split amongst themselves through another illegal venture. That's why I can't help but wonder what would compel them to take an even greater risk for something that doesn't come close to matching the gains they'd already made? This is where my dis claimer comes into play because, hypothetically speaking, if it were me with nearly three-quarters of a million dollars available to me, I wouldn't be caught State & Fed. W. C.

I would just continue doing whatever got me the 700 grand in the first place. But hey, that's just my common sense speaking. Now they've lost their freedom, the money they had and are probably in the red $11,ooo based on the sizable bonds they were given for the drug charges. And the only thing they can blame for their current predicament is that green pea between their ears that they call a brain. Years ago, their actions would have been considered by real go-getters as "hus tling backwards." Jeopardizing something you already have by doing some thing else that you shouldn't have been doing in the first place. Unfortunately, they aren't the first .and I'm sure they won't be the last exam ples of what happens when fools get money that they don't know what to do with. I just hope that when they get out of their current situa tion and try their hands again (you know that they will) that they'll at least be smart enough to wear hel mets because when you live your life as a crash dummy, you have to always be ready for when you hit the wall.

C I Fd) SAN D I) A R N Ill C 0 ; \ \ # ; : # # ; # Mother Wants Son Freed From Prison BY LEON B. CREWS Sentinel StaffWriter When Mrs. Shirley Copeland heard that inmates serving time on mandatory minimum sentencing were being freed, she hoped that meant her son. Mrs. Copeland's son has served 10 years of a life sen tence on drug charges, and she insists he should have never been sentenced in the first place. "'They wanted hiin to be an informant, and when he refused, they gave him a life sentence. He was just a small time street level drug dealer, and got a life sentence." Mrs. Copeland said mak ing matters worse is the fact that her son is serving his time in a California prison where none of t hem can visit him. "My son's health isn't good, and we can't get to him. He's on medication, and I'm con cerned about his health. "When I heard that some prisoners were being freed from their mandatory mini mum sentences, I prayed my son would be one of them." Mrs. Copeland said she still doesn't know for sure if her son will be eligible for early release, but she has been told if she hires the right attorney, the process can be expedited. "I feel he 's served 10 years, and that's enough. It's a shame that our young Black men spend more time in prison on drug charges than people who kill other people. I don't understand what kind of system thinks that's right." Mrs. Copeland said the drug laws from the beginning have targeted Black males exclusively, and when they do get out of prison, many don't have a choice but to do what got them in trouble in the first place. "It's tough getting a job if you don't have a criminal record. If you do have one, it's impossible. I think the system sets our young men up to fail by not offering them any help once they get back on the street." Mrs. Copeland said she plans to get an attorney who will be honest with her about her son's chances of getting out of prison. "There are some who will drain you of all your money, give you hope, and as soon as you tell them you have no more money, they tell you there's nothing else they can do." Mrs. Copeland said she'd like to see the local Families Against Mandatory Minimum Sentencing group reorganize and be a force. 505 East Jackson St. Suite t303 Barrister's Builcllng Tampa, FL 33602 (813) 387-7724 BANKRUPTCY Stop Foreclo.un & er.cutor's Harassment REAL ESTATE LAW FAMILY LAW WARREN DAWSON 221-1800 1461 111111 Palt Plaza @ Nebraua Ave. & scon St. The go' J a:.,c s dec s,cn sc.'c n : be based soc, ":or ad.e1tsc'"e1:s Befoe rO ... ccc cc iJS !c 1:u ,, te"" ..

To God be the Eyes were glued to television sets Wednesday afternoon when the words spread that there would be an announcement regarding charges against George Zimmerman. The special prosecutor for the State of Florida charged Zimmerman, 31, with sec ond degree murder in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin on the evening of February 26, 2012. Dr. Carolyn Collins, President of the Hillsborough County Branch NAACP corn mends the President of the Sanford Seminole County Branch NAACP for contacting the State President, who immediately contacted the National President of the NAACP, who orchestrated their involvement in the case. The national president then contacted the Department of Justice and requested their immediate intervention, which started all the balls to rolling, she explained. The Hillsborough County Branch made several trips to Sanford to participate in the protests of otlier groups. Dr. said, "In addi tion, my heart goes to the parents of Trayvon who stood their ground and worked with all these groups and stu dents to make it happen, which led to opening the eyes of law enforcement and the governor; and ended in an arrest "Now we're looking at stay ing alert," she said, "and we must change the Stand Your Ground law." "The war is not over; we've only jumped one level on the journey. We must protect our children." Community advocate for children, Tonya Lewis stat ed: "I am relieved the family will now have peace, now that has been arrested and that their wishes "'0 and prayers have been met. :!! From the start, this is all the family asked for. W "This case gained a lot of N media coverage, and with all the evidence, it was obvious he N was guilty. I feel he should have been charged with first degree murder because he killed Trayvon intentionally. I would like to see him get life in prison." Rev. Thomas Scott, pastor of 34th Street Church of God, hosted a community rally sponsored by City Councilman Frank Reddick. More than 1,000 people attended the rally. Rev. Scott stated, "We allowed the justice system to work. Given what happened in Sanford the special prosecutor stepped in and did the 0 right thing. An arrest was :!! made and he now has to stand trial.

HOLTON Sentinel City Editor This year, the American Bridge Association (ABA) will hold its Spring National Convention, Southern Section, in Tampa. The Tampa Bay Area Bridge Club is hosting the event, which will take place at the Crowne Plaza East, 10221 Princess Palm Avenue. It will begin Saturday, April 14th and end on Friday April 20th. The organization exp ects to host more than 400 bridge players from across the country. Several members of the Tampa Bay Club a:re excited about the conyention coming to Tampa. Some are also mem bers of Ada T. Payne Friends of the Urban Libraries and taught youngsters how to play the game. It was a winwin situation because it helped working parents and taught the game of bridge to the next generation. MRS. JOHNNIE SAUNDERS ... Member of Tampa Bay Area Bridge Club However, Mrs. Saun ders said the state of econo.:. my caused transportation issues and they ended classes. "The kids learned very eas,.. ily and the classes were very successful for as long as they lasted. We still teach bridge at the Oaks at Riverview, 101 E. Kirby. The classes are free and open to anyone who wants to learn ;' Mrs. Saunders said the late Odie Parker founded the Tampa Bay Area Bridge Club. They received their official charter 20 years ago. She learned while in New York City. After she and her husband, the late William Saunders returned to Tampa, he taught golf to women at Rogers Park. They learned how to play bridge from African 4Jnerican travelers who wanted to learn golf. Mrs. Saunders hopes that others will take an interest in the game because she wants future generations to carry on the tradition. We are all older peo ple and we want the younger people to carry on the tradi tion. Some who share membership in both organizations include, Mrs. Johnnie Saunders, Deacon and Mrs. Richard (Ella) Banks, Mrs. Beverly Bouchee, Mrs. Frances Alexander, and Mrs. Brenda Staton.

The changes were for the good and not the bad. He also C had to drive out the unwanted fE and things It was at the end of this celebration that Jesus was crucified. Could this be a warning to those who attempt to stop people from using the church as personal moneymaking enterprise?

The lev To successtul RelaU nshlps: eomDJunlcauon The leading causes cited for divorce are infidelity followed by poor communication and finances. A couple's inability to appropriately communicate and actively listen to each other creates stress and conflict. Inappropriate communication is name-calling and belittling. Also, using criti cism and threats to manipu late is also inappropriate communication. Appropriate communica tion is the key to minimizing conflict and essential in building long-lasting mar riages, friendships and relationships. People that desire a success ful and healthy relationship are authentic, open, honest and empathic. Individuals interested in having a long lasting, happy and stable rela tionship are encouraged to learn how to appropriately communicate and actively lis ten. People that desire to have a meaningful relationship allow others to express their feel ings and opinions without fear of rejection or judgment. Most often, when a hurting person opens up and express es their thoughts she or he is seeking a listening ear and guidance. We all have differ ences of opinions, but our dif ferences should never lead to harsh words, physical abuse or violence. Unless a person allows an individual to share their pain How And Where To Buv A Computer Hello again all. OK, it's Springtime which is always graduation time and a perfect gift would be a new laptop computer for that new graduate, especially those on their way to college. But the question is, what to buy, how much to spend and where to get it. This column is going to help you with those questions. First, what to buy? I know you may want to save some money and buy a used laptop, but resist that temptation, if you can. Computers and laptops are designed to last about 5 years before it's time for a replace ment. Your new graduate needs something that can go the distance and give them enough time to complete the next phase of their education or life. Plus, the used machines may not be able to run all the new software, so please do your graduate a favor and purchase new. Also, stay with the name brands. The best laptop brands are Sony, Dell and HP. You can also sneak in an IBM (Lenovo) if you can get it at a decent price. Other brands, not so much. They'll be cheaper, but you'll pay the price in the long run. The processor should at least be a Core 2 Duo, but if you can afford an i3 or is, go for it. Finally, make sure you have at least a 2GB minimum memory, and if you can afford 4GB, that's another good buy. Hard drive size is no longer Walk Ins & Appointments Welcome Don't Get With The Drama! and struggles-he or she can not help to promote healing in others. When a person's thoughts or feelings are inval idated or minimized they will emotionally shut down. No one can have a long-lasting marriage or friendship with out respecting the feelings, ideas and thoughts of others. In a relationship, each per son communicates from his or her point of reference and knowledge base. Individuals obtain learned behaviors and thoughts from their family of origin and environment. Each person learns how to communicate and relate to significant others by observ ing parental and siblings interactions. Therefore, it may be difficult for your mate or friend to show affection and express emotions. Patience and forgiveness are the keys to building a long lasting relationship. What does the Bible say about communication? "A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh words stir up strife.' Proverb 15:1 KJV. that important. The 250GB hard is pretty standard and will pi'"ovide the average user with plenty of storage space. One last thing, please remember that a tablet com puter is not a laptop. Your student is going to need to do a lot of typing and printing, and will need a full-blown lap top computer. Secondly, how much should you spend? You should expect to spend any where from $450 to $700. Less, unless it's just a fantas tic deal, will mean that you are giving up both quality and performance. More is proba bly going to be overkill for the average student. You should start watching for deals and don't be afraid of refurbished computers as long as they still come with a full manufacturer's warrantee. Oh by the way, it's your choice on the store warrantee. I don't recommend them, but it's a personal choice, and I have the advantage of being able to do everything I need to do on my computer myself. Thirdly and finally, where should you purchase your computer? Shopping online usually yields you the best values, but there will be some excellent in store buys in May. I prefer Dell.com and always have. They always have weekly specials that are an excellent deal. The only problem I've found is that you have to take the deal "as is" and can't add anything. As soon as you do, wham! That price jumps up. HP also has an excellent online store, but the problem with the online stores is you have to know in advance exactly what you're looking for. As far as a brick and mortar store, I really like CompUSA They have about the best prices of anyone and carry a few name bfaDds.

Justice For Trat;tvon Martin anin Familvanornev Responds To Cancalladon 01 Grand Jurv Florida.State Attorney Angela Corey announced Monday that she will not be taking the Trayvon Martin case b for a grand jury. Corey took over the investigation into the F ebruary 26 kill ing of the unarmed Martin by neigh borhood watchman George Zimmerman in Sanford, which had been started by State Attorney Norm Wo11inger. In response to Corey's announcement that no grand jury will be held, Benjamin Crump, the Martin family attorney, issued the following response: We are not surprised by this announcement and in fact are hopeful that a deci sion will be reached very soon to arrest George Zimmerman and give Trayvon Martin's family the simple justice they have been seeking all along. The family has been patient throughout this process and asks that those who support them do the same during this very impor tant investigation. c LL.

Prosecutor Angela Corey said her decision had no bearing on whether she would file charges against George Zimmerman though it does effectively rule out a 1st degree murder charge.

Michigan State Police and Michigan Department of Transportation (MOOT) officials are trying to determine how an electronic road was chaD.ged to display a racist message about Trayvon Martin. The sign, which was located along I-94, at the border of Detroit and Dearborn, said "Trayvon is a Ni**er" and was discovered just before 1 a.m. on Monday morning. ISup n c lei BillY lea' rtstban s Emeru 1 san11111 Sanford Police Chief Bill Lee oversaw the decision not to charges against George Zimmerman on February 26 after the neigh borhood watch volunteer killed Trayvon Martin with a registered handgun. Lee's decision sparked national outrage, leading to a widespread outccy for the arrest of Zimmerman and the firing of Chief Lee. Lee temporarily stepped down from his po t on March 22 in response to the unrest. Now a small contin gent of Sanford c itizens have risen up in support of Lee, some even wearing wrist bands as part of a grassroots campa i gn to save his job. Rubber bracelets with the me sage ':'J Support Billy Lee" emblazoned in uppercase lettering are reportedly being worn by a segment of his advocates in the Florida town. A Sanford resident known only as "'CJ" has told 'NBC News that she created and distributed the wristbands to demonstrate that the beleaguered chief still has allies Rev. Jamal Bryant, center, with Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson at a March rally for n-ay von Martin, calling for the arrest Zimmerman. It was Rev. Jamal Bryant-'s m i ssion to register one million new black voters this Easter. He and a collec tion of other black ministers across the country set out to use one of the Church's high est attended days to bring their congregations into the political process in an effort they call the Empowerment Move-ment While all the results aren't in, Bryant calls the Easter day drive just the beginning. With the case of slain teen Trayvon Martin as a catalyst, he sees a future of increased po l itica l empower ment for young black American "I'm very excited about the momentum that the Empowerment Movement has built, said Bryant. "We re ba r ely ove r 40 days old and we've registered 110,000 people to vote." While the number is just over a tenth of the organization s original goal, Bryant said he can rest well with the results. "Most civil rights organiza tions haven't done that in ayear," he added. Bryant stated in a March press release that there are an estimated soo,ooo black churches in the United States and over five million unregis tered black voters. The website for the Empowerment Movement states their official goal was registering one million vote r s on Apr i l 8 2012, "making Guinness World Book history for democracy, by chal l enging every black chur ch in the U nited States to reg i ter 20 people on that day.
