Cop killer suspect arrested


Mistaken identity believed cause


DETECTIVE JAMES WALKER


Miami police on Monday
arrested the suspected killer of
Miami Detective James Walker
last week in North Miami Beach.
The arrest was made outside
the Miami police headquarters.
James Andrew
Rolle, 20, a trouble
young man with a
slew of minor arrests,
had no record of
any serious legal
problems.
He lacks a
permanent address
and a driver's
license. Hew as 13
when police first
cuffed him. Rolle had JAMES
been enrolled in two
schools for troubled youths -
and was arrested on charges of
fight at both.
Rolle is now in jail accused of
fatally shooting Walker who was
buried Saturday with Military
honors from Jordan Grove
Baptist Church in Liberty City.
Police authorities believe
Rolle thought Walker, in his
white Taurus, was a pal driving
a getaway car, a near identical


Taurus. Rolle tried getting
into to the car but instead
encountered Walker.
Shots were exchanged.
Walker died in the firefight.

$30,00 REWARD
In a strange turn
of events on Monday,
hours after North
Miami Beach police
identified Rolle and
announced an arrest
warrant for murder
had been issue, the
plot thickened.
Miami police
received a call from
ROLLE a woman saying
the man they were
looking for was sitting outside
headquarters in a red pickup
truck.
The police ran outside and
inside the red truck were Rolle
and the woman who had called
in the tip. Police aren't sure how
she managed to call them while
inside the truck with Rolle.
On Monday, a $30,000 reward

FAMU to pay overtime back pay


By AngelineJ. Taylor


Florida A&M University has to pay
$273,000 in back wages to 352 employees
after an investigation by the U.S.
Department of Labor's Wage and Hour
Division, the federal agency said Friday.
The agency found university-wide
violations of the overtime provisions and
record keeping requirements of the Fair
Labor Standards Act (FLSA).
"Public agencies have an obligation to
follow the FLSA as it pertains to them


and to keep accurate time records," said
Michael Young, director for the Wage
and Hour Division's Jacksonville District
Office, in a news release. "The department
will continue our efforts to ensure that
governments as well as private businesses
are paying employees properly."
The violations occurred between Sept.
4, 2004, and Sept. 2, 2006, at FAMU,
government and university officials said.
FAMU spokeswoman Sharon Saunders
said an order to pay back wages has
never happened at FAMU before. Labor


officials were not available to answer
specific questions as to how often these
violations are found at public colleges and
universities.
"The new administration met with the
DOL (Department of Labor) in September
2007," Saunders said by e-mail. "The
problems were inherited by the new
administration in July 2007."
Investigators found that FAMU failed
to total hours when employees worked in
different departments or in different jobs

City of Miami commission OKs slots deal


Flagler Dog Track and Miami Jai-Alai
won approval Thursday by the Miami City
Commission for a revenue sharing deal
that goes sup for voter approval to add slot
machines on Jan. 29
The third parimutuel, Calder Race Course,
approved a deal with Miami Gardens last
month. The basic terms of Miami's deal
mirror what Miami Gardens agreed to:
Both cities stand to receive 1.5 percent of
all slot revenues after that. Miami-Dade
County signed a somewhat similar deal


with the parimutuels in 2005, prior to a
failed slots referendum that year.
That county agreement remains valid if
slots are approved this time around.
In the case of Miami, lobbyist Ron Book -
who appeared before Miami commissioners
Thursday on behalf of Flagler said the
city will receive at least $60 million in
combined payments from Flagler and
Miami Jai-Alai over the next 20 years if
slots are approved.
"There are clear winners here, and


the winners are your citizens and your
taxpayers," Book told commissioners.
Local governments plan to use the money
they get from parimutuels to help offset
potential impacts of the new "racinos" to
pay for more police, to maintain roads with
increased traffic, and to boost services
for the social ills that can accompany
gambling.
Miami City Commission Chairman Joe
Sanchez said, "the city can't afford for us
not to pass this."


Lawn-watering restrictions in effect


South Florida Water
Management District
officials have order strict
lawn-watering regulations
because of the severe drought
conditions that are now in
effect.
Water management
authorities call it Phase III
- an "extreme" water-use
situation.
For residents in Broward
and Miami-Dade counties,
the restrictions mean most


residential lawns may be
watered only once a week
during one of two four-hour
windows.
"Fifty percent of potable
water produced in South
Florida winds up on lawns"
said Jesus Rodriguez,
spokesman for the water
management district. "By
focusing on that one use,
well be able to make a
significant impact on water
consumption.

BLACKS MUST CONTROL THEIR OWN DESTINY


A THE MIAMI TIMES JANUARY 16 8


Lt IIlt MIIIIVIII IMIVL), JAlUAiKI IULL, .UUO


Martin Luther King

would cry
Were Martin Luther King Jr. to come back, even
for a while, and have a chance to survey the
Black landscape, he would sit right down and
cry. Around him he would see young men killing one
another without a second thought, motivated by greed and
self-destructive forces. He would see young girls becoming
mothers and going on welfare. He would see young men
being put in prison. He would see drugs have become
the scourge of the land, exacting a terrible price even on
unborn babies.

This is not the mountain top of existence that Rev. King
glimpsed in his "dream"; it is a hellish nightmare. And while
it is true that millions of Blacks have been able to succeed
in America, millions more are failing because the obstacles
are too great. Our communities have become battlegrounds
for gang wars and our children talk not about a happy
tomorrow of married life, children and growing old but
of the funeral dresses they want to be buried in and the
funeral song they want sung at their funerals.

In our communities, we are afraid of going to the corner
grocery because we may be killed by stray bullets: a few of
our children have died because they happened to be in the
wrong place.

There are some among us who have come to believe that
there is indeed power from a gun and that they can demand
self validation when they point a gun at someone. It is a
false sense of power and a negation, not validation, of self
to use weapons to demand respect.

It is not easy to know what Rev. King would have done if
he had lived through these times. His was a battle against
oppressors of the African American people, the White
racists who used whips and dogs and water cannon and
guns against his people as they marched for equality as
American citizens. He did not have to march against other
segments of his own people, for he was confident of our
ability to transform citizenship into personal success.

Many of us have done just that and have realized his
dream; but too many have not and they have turned the
dream into a nightmare because good people have been
standing by for too long while evil has been allowed to
gather roots and spread. The best way to honor Rev. King's
memory on the latest celebration of his birth anniversary,
being celebrated Monday, is for each of us to accept a
personal responsibility for the travails of our community
and make a personal commitment to do what each of us
can to bring them to an end.

To do less will be to mock, not celebrate the life of Martin
Luther King Jr.

A jewel in our backyard

One of the brightest stars in our universe is the
internationally acclaimed Haitian-born author
Edwidge Danticat who now lives in Miami.

Edwidge Danticat was born in Haiti and moved to the
United States when she was twelve. She is the author of
several books, Breath, Eyes, Memory an Oprah Book Club
selection; Krik? Krak!, a National Book Award finalist and
The Farming of Bones, an American Book Award winner.
She is also the editor of The Butterfly's Way: Voices from the
Haitian Dyaspora in the United States and The Beacon Best
of 2000: Great Writing by Men and Women of All Colors and
Cultures.

Danticat earned a degree n French Literature from Barnard
College, where she won the 1995 Woman of Achievement
Award and later at MBA from Brown University. She lives
here with her husband and daughter.

Danticathas been nominated for another prestigious, literary
prize. The National Book Critics Circle has announced that
her memoir Brother, I'm Dying is a contender for its annual
awards in the relatively new autobiography category.

From the age of four Edwidge Danticat came to think of her
uncle Joseph, a charismatic pastor, as her "second father,"
when se was placed in his care after her parents left her for
a better life in America. Listening to his sermons, sharing
coconut-flavored ices on their walks through town, roaming
through the house that held together many members of a
colorful extended family. Edwidge grew profoundly attached
to Joseph. He was the man who "knew all, the verses for
love."

Danticat, also author of several books of fiction, was
nominated for a National Book Award last year but lost to
Tim Weiner's CIA history A Legacy of Ashes.

Support controversial Overtown Crosswinds project


Dear Editor,

I was very disturbed as I
witnessed the county commission
meeting as Commissioner Audrey
Edmonson moved to have the
county exercise the reversion
clause of the land designated
by the city of Miami for the
Crosswinds/Sawyer's Walk
project for Overtown.
If Commissioner Edmonson and
her colleagues kill this project, it
will be one of the worst mistakes in
the history of Overtown, perhaps
even more devastating than the
1-95 and 1-395 projects which
devastated our once thriving and
historic predominately African
American community. It would
be a disgrace and insult to our
forefathers and mothers who
helped build Miami, and to our
children and future generations
of African-Americans.
As she pleaded several times
with her colleagues to support
her move, with the mayor also
threatening to veto any fiction
contrary to her wishes, the
commission voted to exercise
the clause 9-4. Some of the
commissioners looked on
dumbfounded, some seemed
confused about her intentions,
but supported this move
anyway,
During that meeting I
personally pleaded with
Commissioner Edomonson to
consider postponing such drastic
action that will essentially kill a
project that could benefit the
community. The commissioner


told me flat out No! as she
returned to her seat on the dais.
The Crosswinds project n
become a, catalyst for increasing
the income levels of residents,
and could potentially provide
innumerable entrepreneurial
opportunities for existing
residents willing to start
businesses that will provide
goods and services to future
Crosswinds residents, for jobs
for existing residents who
want to learn skills and uplift
themselves out of poverty, and
indeed become a part of the
American dream to own their


own homes, etc.
I believe that the citizens of
Miami can well come together to
insure that whatever the future
of Overtown may be, it would not
continued to remain in present
day conditions. Especially our
former Washingtonians, and
other whose roots and family
history is a part of Overtown
should come together and
demand that Overtown's rich
legacy and history is never
forgotten by demanding
accountability of our elected
officials and insuring that
whatever future revitalization


efforts will include benefits for
the past and present residents
of Overtown. Now is the moment
to act Washingtonians, now is
the time to get together and set
the future for a new Overtown.
By the way, I have for some
time now been wondering just
who and what PowerU is. Who
do they purport to represent
and most of all, who appointed
this group a representing the
Overtown community? How long
O' Lord will their 15 minutes
last?

Parking fees at Jackson Memorial Hospital increased 100
percent on Jan. 1 and patients and visitors to the huge county
complex are having a tough time dealing with the problem.
The increase of $16 for the day and $2 per half-hour is being
blamed on he strain of charity cases by undocumented
refugees'and the poor. Parking at Jackson's North and staff
facilities remain free. Stay tuned.

A new anti-slot group called No Casino Miami seem to be
having a hard time finding support tin our neighborhoods,
what with runaway property taxes, unemployment and the
economy going South daily. The las vote in Miami-Dade
narrowly missed by only 2 percent. It the referendum passes
this time, it will allow slot machines at Calder Race Course,
Flagler Dog Track and Sports Entertainment Center and
Miami Jai-Alai. Slot machines already spin at three Broward
casinos."

Miami Police chief John Timoney is bringing back memories
to old timers of the infamous former Chief Walter Headley

Political campaigners have long been guilty of talking out of
both sides of their mouths. In a speech in Southwest Florida,
Republican presidential contender Rudy Giullani called for
stricter citizenship requirements than he had stated while
Campaigning in South Florida.

Gay marriage ban supporters are mad as hell because
a proposed constitutional amendment to ban same sex
marriage in Florida might not make it on to the November
ballot, organizers, who thought a month ago they'd collected
enough signatures, found out Monday they hadn't after all
Florida4Marriage.org has until Feb. 1 to get 22,000 more
signatures to state election officials.

The coming presidential election in getting total involvement
from everyone this time around. But there is disagreement in
the local sanataria religious camp. One group has predicted
that Barack Obama will be victorious, but another group of
Sanataria priests and followers claim Hillary Clinton will
take the lead and even the presidency. Stay tuned.

Do we or do we not want to save money in our overburdened
school system? The schools have a plan to save $240 million
over the next four years, but parents already have begun to
protest a proposal by Miami-Dade schools administrators to
close underenrolled schools even before the School Board.

Northwestern coach and quarterback receive sports awards


By Isheka N. Harrison


Last Friday, the Florida
Dairy Farmers named the
Northwestern Bulls' star
quarterback Jacory Harris and
Head Football Coach William
'Billy' Rolle the 2007 Mr.
Football and Coach-of-the-Year,
respectively. The sports awards
were presented to Harris and
Rolle in a ceremony that took
place at Miami Northwestern in
their TOPA auditorium.
After Northwestern principal
Charles Hankerson offered
some words, Dairy Farmers
Program Coordinator Dwight
Johnson stood to make the
presentations. He informed the
audience that in the 16 years the
Dairy Farmers have been giving
high school sports awards, the
Mr. Football and Coach-of-the-
Year rarely, if ever, came from
the same institution.

during a work week, which
resulted in some employees
not receiving overtime when
their total hours exceeded
40. Saunders said the 352
employees represented
those who were not properly
compensated under the labor
standards.
"The university did not pay
employees who earned and
were credited with payable
compensatory leave on an
annual basis," Saunders said.
Federal laws require that
when an employee works two
or more jobs for one employer
during a week, the hours need
to be added together. That's,
how overtime payments are
determined.
About 54 percent of the
university's personnel are
salaried versus those who are
paid on an hourly basis. But
some FAMU employees due
back-pay as a result of the
investigation are no longer
with the university. Saunders
said FAMU is required to pay
current employees by direct
deposit and those no longer at
FAMU by certified mail.
The university was first
notified of the yearlong
investigation into FAMU's
labor violations in September

- Johnson celebrated Harris'
tenacity as a player. "It is no
doubt that this young man has
been one of the most dominant
players in football over the past
couple of years. This is Mr.
Football. He'll be known for that
for the rest of his life," Johnson
said.
Harris humbly accepted his
trophy giving credit to God, his
family, teammates and peers
for all of their support. "First of
I'd like to thank God because
without Him I wouldn't have
gotten this far. Much love to
my family for their support and
to my teammates, you deserve
all of this because without you
I wouldn't be this far," Harris
stated.
Rolle was equally humble
in his acceptance speech,
acknowledging that his
individual success was due
to the help of his assistant
coaches, staff and the entire


2006. To ensure that it doesn't
happen again, Saunders said
the university held workshops,
revised operating procedures
on overtime and implemented
a new payroll system.
"We can assure you that
we are in compliance. We
are committed to making
sure that our employees are
paid properly and on time,"
Saunders said.

under the circumstances. You
hung in there with each other,
stayed together and kept your
grades up. I thank you guys,"
Rolle said.
Sitting in the audience with
proud smiles on their faces were
Harris' parents Rodney Harris
and Shebra Pollock-Harris.
They told The Miami Times that
Jocory made them proud in
everything he's accomplished.
"I'm really proud of Jacory
because he's accomplished a
lot on the high school level,
but what's most important is
that he's done well on every
level. We're not just proud of
him because he's successful
at football; we're proud of him
as a person, as a son and as a
brother. We hope he continues
to get accolades because he's
very deserving," Pollock-Harris
said.

continued from 4A
Harris' father. He relayed his
happiness that Northwestern
could persevere and show
themselves worthy in light of
the strict mandates placed
upon them following a sex
scandal controversy involving a
former player that almost cost
the Bulls their season.


"I'm not just happy for Jacory,
but for Miami Northwestern to
receive some positive accolades
after a year of turmoil and
confusion. I'm happy this is
being done at Northwestern,
with a kid from Northwestern, to
exemplify the things his parents,
himself, Miami Northwestern
and the community at large
stand for," the elder Harris
remarked.


Harris and Rolle's awards
come just weeks after the Miami
Northwestern Bulls capped an
undefeated season by winning
the Class 6A state title and were
ranked the number one high
school team in the country.
As the 16th player named Mr.
Football, Harris joins the ranks
of NFL greats like Daunte
Culpepper, Travis Henry and
Leon Washington.

Battle for slot machines in Miami-Dade heats up


By Paul Henry

With Election Day nearing
and all eyes once again turning
to Florida for the presidential
Primary, Miami-Dade is
starting to see increased
attention and vying for its votes.
But the Presidential battle is
not the only one heating up in
South Florida, the battle for
slot machines in Miami-Dade
is now at our door step.
Last week, the City of Miami
unanimously approved an
inter-local agreement with
Flagler Dog Track, one of
the pari-mutuel facilities
advocating for slot machines
in Miami-Dade that would
guarantee jobs and millions of
dollars in new revenue if voters
approve County Question #3
on January 29th. Specifically,


the county referendum would
allow limited, regulated and
taxed slot machines in the
three existing pari-mutuel
facilities of Flagler Dog Track,
Calder Race Course and Miami
Ala-Alai.
The inter-local agreement
would be for 20 years, with
an' automatic renewal for
an additional 20 years, and
stipulates the City of Miami
will receive 1.5% of the first
$250 million of Flagler's
annual gross slot revenues
and an additional 2.5% will
be generated for the City each
year on all gross slot revenues
in excess of $250 million. The
agreement also provided that
City of Miami residents will
receive priority in entry-level
and professional employment
opportunities and guarantees


that 25% of the jobs created
will go to qualified minority
and women applicants living in
the City of Miami and Miami-
Dade County.

HISTORICAL PARTNERSHIP
"This is a historic partnership
for the City of Miami and
Flagler," said BarbaraHavenick.
"Flagler and the City of Miami
have worked together to ensure
that additional revenue and
employment opportunities will
be brought to our community.
We encourage every resident of
the City of Miami to vote yes on
Tuesday, January 29, 2008, to
bring thousands of new jobs,
additional recurring revenues
to our local government and
an influx of tourism revenues
for businesses and residents of
Miami-Dade County."


Former Congresswoman
Carrie Meek has also joined
the effort to bring slots to
Miami based on the new jobs
and revenues that will be
guaranteed by the referendum.
Focusing her outreach on
educating the community on
what the referendum means
and what it will bring to
Miami-Dade, Meek has been
an outspoken supporter in the
community: "This is about
jobs for our neighbors and I am
going to spread the word. We
need this referendum and we
need the community to come
out and vote to see the benefits
come through," said Meek.

OPPOSITION
There is opposition to the
campaign, however. In 2005,
groups came out in the last


few weeks ranging from then-
Governor Jeb Bush to the
Christian Coalition focusing
on increases in crime and false
promises of education funding
as their main disagreements.
"Not so," says Yes for a Greater
Miami-Dade spokesperson,
the group supporting the
referendum. "There is no
evidence that the addition of
slot machines lead to increased
crime. In fact, it is just the
opposite. Crime has not
increased in Broward since the
slot machines were approved
in 2005 and education
funding is guaranteed by the
constitution."
The group also pointed to the
over $100 million that has gone
into the state's education budget
since the slot machines became
operational after voter approval


in 2005, a figure supported by
state calculations.
Hialeah Mayor Robaina has
also spoken out against the
effort saying he wants Hialeah
Park included in the mix, even
though Hialeah does not have
racing or is operational at this
time. But Robaina has chosen
controversial partners in his
opposition effort. Disgraced
former lawmaker Ralph Arza
is said to have committed to
helping Robaina, at Robaina's
request. Arza was ousted
from the Florida House of
Representatives last year after
being caught using racial
slurs against the current
Miami-Dade superintendent of
schools, Rudy Crew, an African
American, on the voicemail of
former State Representative
Gus Barreiro.


More states roll the dice on slots


By Dennis Cauchon

The number of slot machines
is soaring as states seek
more revenue and gamblers
increasingly move from table
games to the flashy electronic
devices.
The USA had a record 767,418
slot machines and video poker
games in operation on Jan. 1,
up 6.4% from a year earlier,
according to Casino City Press,
an industry publication. The
nation now has slots in 37 states
- up from 31 in 2000 and
the equivalent of one machine
for every 395 residents.
The trend will accelerate in
the next few years. More than
100,000 new slot machines
already have regulatory approval
or could get it this year.
"Slots are considered an easier
tax to impose" than income or
sales taxes, says Alan Meister,
an economist at Analysis Group
in Los Angeles who studies
gambling.

WHAT'S HAPPENING
NATIONWIDE
SCalifornia. Voters decide
Feb. 5 whether to approve a
deal to allow 17,000 new slot
machines at tribal casinos. Gov.
Arnold Schwarzenegger says the
deal would bring the state about
$400 million a year.
S Maryland. Voters in
November will decide whether to
allow 15,000 slot machines at
racetracks, reaping the state up
to $650 million a year.


S Florida. The federal
government last week approved
Gov. Charlie Crist's deal with
the Seminole tribe to expand
its seven casinos and add
computerized slots. The tribe
will pay the state at least $100
million a year. Separately,
Miami-Dade County voters will
consider slots at racetracks
Jan. 29.
Kentucky. Gov. Steve
Beshear has made a statewide
referendum to legalize slots a
top priority.
Massachusetts and Texas
legislators will consider slot
machines this year. Ohio, where
voters rejected slots last year,
is the only large state without
slots or an active push to get the
machines. Indiana, Kansas, New
York and Oklahoma are among
states that will dramatically
expand slots this year or get
them for the first time.
What's driving the push for
more slots: The weakening
economy has slowed state
revenue growth to its lowest level
in fire years. States get $8 billion
a year in gambling taxes" and
fees, spending it on education,
economic development .and
other programs. Unlike lottery
proceeds often reserved for
schools most states give
legislators free rein on how
gambling revenue is spent.
Casino gamblers lost $61
billion nationwide in 2006,
reports the Indian Gaming
Industry Report.

new slot machines has attracted
national attention. The state
took in $580 million in slot
machine revenue in 2007, its
first year of gambling, and only
12,000 of the maximum 61,000
slots are operating.
Maryland Comptroller Peter
Franchot will campaign against
slots in November. "People
pretend it's free money," he says.
"It's not. The revenue comes from
the poorest, most vulnerable,
and it comes with huge social
costs in addiction, bankruptcy,
crime and corruption."

EREND DR. JUANITA MINCED
Spiritual and Educatioral Leader
Saturday at her home after a long illness


The Reverend Dr. Juanita Mincey, founder in 1982 of Christ Crusaders, Inc., a Miami-
based non-profit service organization, and spiritual leader to thousands in
South Florida and beyond, died Saturday, January 12, at her home in
Miramar after a long illness.
Rev. Dr. Mincey served Christ Crusade Family Center as senior
pastor and was a beloved mother and heroine to her family and
to the many people she nurtured and encouraged.
Through Rev. Dr. Mincey's leadership and guidance, Christ
Crusaders developed a wide range of social services,
including schools and daycare services; mobile health
clinics; AIDS screenings in neighborhoods; tutoring for the
high school equivalency exam (GED); transportation;
mammograms for women; counseling for substance
abuse; and respite care for the elderly.
Reverend Mincey founded the community service
organization with just two employees; later it grew
to nearly 70 employees. Additionally, she founded
the Opa-locka Christian Academy, educating
children in pre-kindergarten through 12th grade,
and the Opa-locka Christian University.
She was frequently recognized and honored for
her dedication and service to the community.
In 2003, Reverend Minceywas named Mission Director
and District Elder for the state of Florida for the
Soul Saving Station organization, which she
helped develop missions and churches
overseas, in the Netherlands, France,
Greece and Ghana, West Africa. She
also helped establish churches and
missions in Haiti, Italy and Germany.
She traveled to Africa many times
to help coordinate the ministry
and share her vision for helping
others.
Her family and friends
established the Juanita Mincey
Foundation in her honor in 4
2004 to provide assistance for
students and senior citizens.
Since then, the Foundation has
presented thousands of dollars
in scholarships.
At the launch of the
foundation, Congresswoman
Emeritus Carrie Meek surprised
Rev. Mincey with a Lifetime
Achievement Award for her
dedication and service to the
community and world through


her international social services outreach programs. Congresswoman Meek
also announced that the occasion had been noted in the Congressional
Record. Rev. Mincey at that time described this as "the greatest honor
of her life."
She also was honored for her work with resolutions from the
Florida House of Representatives and was recognized by the
State of Florida, Miami-Dade County and the City of Opa-
locka with "Juanita Mincey Day" resolutions.
Education was a.major focus of her life, and she earned
numerous degrees, including a Ph.D. in divinity, summa
cum laude with great distinction, from Canbourne
University June 13,2005; a Ph.D. in business administration,
magna cum laude, from Canbourne December 9,
2005; a master's in business administration from Liberty
University January 23, 2006; a bachelor of arts degree
from Shaw University in North Carolina in May 1976;
and an associate arts degree from Miami-Dade
Community College in July 1975. She graduated from
Seward Park High School in New York City in 1955.
Juanita Baker Mincey was born February 6, 1937, in
Lyons, Georgia, the daughter of Magnolia and Joseph
Baker, now both deceased. She married Tubal Mincey

Ephesians emphasizes obedience to God


We are continuing our
study of Ephesians 5, and
beginning this week with verse
6. In this verse, Paul makes
it very clear that God does
not like disobedience. Paul
admonishes the church to not
be fooled with empty words.
This warning is one to heed
carefully. Too many people
will try to convince you that
sin is something other than
sin. They call sin a mistake, a
misunderstanding, or a lapse
in judgment. And though sin


can be all of these things, it is
still sin, and sin is not pleasing
to God. Yes, God is a loving
and forgiving God. Remind
yourself of that as often as you
need to. However, God loves
us, but He does not love sin.
Do not allow anyone to tell
you that sin is okay, because
it is not. Don't allow anyone to
try to convince you that God
does not mind if you cheat on
your taxes, or on applications
for financial assistance. Don't
believe anyone that tells us


that God knows that you are
lonely and it is acceptable to
have a s exual relationship
with someone to whom you are
not married. In fact, Paul goes
on to say that Godly people
should not be a partner with
those who are disobedient.
Paul knows that all who are-
now children of light, God's
light, were not always this
way. We were all children of
darkness, satan's darkness.
Now that we are different, we
should act differently, and if
we have any questions about
that, ask God. We should live
to please HIM! Not only should
we not partake of the darkness,
or participate in unChristlike
behavior, but Paul says that we
need to expose it. Don't bury
your head in the sand, and
pretend that right is wrong,


and wrong is right. The Holy
Spirit dropped a phrase in
my spirit last year, and it has
proved to be true time and time
again 'confrontation brings
deliverance.' You see, when
darkness is exposed to light, it
gives an opportunity for what
was hidden and covered up to
be revealed. Oftentimes, when
darkness, or evil deeds, are
exposed to the light from Godly
people, these actions will cease,
and even cause those who are
participating in this behavior
to desire to change .
Live wisely, we are advised
in verse 15. I don't have to tell
you how many people leave
their homes in the morning
to drive to work, and find
themselves instead in -the
hospital because of a driver out
of control. How many parents

Friends help carry the burden of dieting


By Nanci Hellmich

Weight loss can be catching,
even when relatives and friends
are thousands of miles apart.
Consider Paulette Griffis, 40,
of Chula Vista, Calif., who lost
more than 50 pounds in USA
TODAY's 2006 Weight-Loss
Challenge. As she lost weight,
she talked daily to her sister,
Sonja Moon, 34, of Greenville,
S.C. But the two didn't see each
other until last winter, when
Moon flew to California.
"When I got off the plane and
saw her, I was like 'Wow! What
size jeans do you have on?' "
Moon says. "Paulette looked
like a teenager. She looked
so much smaller. It brought
tears to my eyes. I knew what I
needed to do."
Moon went back home, and
over the past year, she has lost
43 pounds. She now weighs
128.
LA sampling of the dieting
public shows that in weight
loss, as in life, families can be
a mixed blessing.
A Gallup Poll conducted for
USA TODAY and Discovery
Health of 769 Americans, ages
18 and older, who have tried to
lose weight shows:
68% say their circle of
friends and relatives has done
more to help than hinder their
efforts to slim down.
88% say they've been
complimented on their
successes when they've been
able to drop pounds.
57% say it would be helpful
to them to partner with a friend
or relative when trying to lose
weight.
Still, it's not all a rosy
picture. One-third of
respondents (34%) have
problems with how they've
been treated by relatives and
close friends during weight-
loss attempts. They say their
nearest and dearest have
tried to lead them astray
from their diets, teased them
about their choice of foods
or tried to short-circuit their
plans to exercise. (The poll
has a margin of error of 4


Paulette Griffis, right, 40, of Chula Vista, Calif., lost more
than 50 pounds on the USA TODAY Weight-Loss Challenge in
2006. This inspired her sister, Sonja Moon, 34, of Greenville,
S.C., to lose 40 pounds in 2007.


percentage points.)
"Most partners, family
members and friends are very
supportive," says psychologist
Thomas Wadden, a weight-
loss expert at the University
of Pennsylvania School of
Medicine in Philadelphia. "My
experience is that partners
want to help their loved one
lose weight because they know
it's important to the loved one.
They want that person to be
happier, to be in better health,
to be more mobile, to have
an opportunity to buy more


appealing, attractive clothes."
Wadden says it's the
exception rather than the
rule that your partner is
going to feel threatened by
your weight loss and try
to undermine your efforts.
"That's occasionally true, but
it's not very common."

send their children to school
every morning only to find that
a student has brought weapons
into the school with the
intention of harming others? I
have heard several times just
in the past few weeks that
customers going to the drug
store or the ATM were not only
robbed, but killed by someone
who had no respect for life -
except their own. Live wisely.
Know your surroundings, in
the natural sense, as well as
the spiritual sense. This is a
good time to keep in mind the
scripture that tells us to know
those who labor among us.
Know even those who are there
for ministry. Are they Godly
men and women? Are they
'walking their talk?' Sadly,
even some ministers (and I did
say SOME) are not practicing


what they prea ch. I, too, am a
minister of God, so I know that
this is so.
Paul makes a statement in
verse 16 that is certainly true
today 'the days are evil.' They
are evil, and we must make
the most of every opportunity
to not only live wisely, but to
proclaim the Good News of
Jesus Christ. People that you
work with, or work out with, or
have lunch with, or are in your
family need to know that God
is still in control. Though their
homes might still be on the real
estate market, and some have
been unemployed for months,
God still sits on the throne.
We need to be a comfort and
encouragement to those who
are down and depressed.
The chapter is not done, and
next week, we will continue.

of God in Greer, S.C., lost 100
pounds a few years ago. His
success was featured in last
year's Weight-Loss Challenge.
He says his wife, Regina, helped
him every step of the way,
cooking healthful meals and
complimenting his success.
He received lots of positive
comments from others; in, fact,
his looks changed so much
that some people didn't even
recognize him. "When you lose
100 pounds, you look a whole
lot different."
Claypoole dropped from
284,pounds to 184 pounds by
following a high-protein, high-
fiber plan of 1,800 to 1,900
calories a day and working
out regularly at the gym. But
there were times when people
did things that could have
sabotaged his program.
"To be honest with you, there
were lot of people trying to get
me to go to fast-food restaurants
after church or church events,"
he says. "People would say,
'One meal won't hurt you.'
"But by and large, people were
supportive and understood
that I had to separate myself
from fast-food joints and my
poor former habits."
One of the people Claypoole
inspired was Colt Davis, 24,
who is active in the youth
ministry at the church.
Davis had gained about 30
pounds whei he was studying
in Argentina for a yeai*. When
he returned, he was amazed


by Claypoole's transformation.
Davis began going to the gym
with Claypoole and dropped
weight while building muscle.
The two continue to work out
together about five days a
week.
"It's easier to get pumped
up at first about working out
or losing weight," Davis says.

"It's easier to get pumped up a
losing weight," .. But unless
partner, it's hard to maintain t



"But unless you have an
accountability partner, it's hard
to maintain that enthusiasm."
Claypoole agrees: "We keep
each other accountable in diet
issues. We talk about new
exercises and diet stuff we've
read about.
"He shares with me, and I
share with him."
In turn, the two have inspired
others to shape up, including
teenagers at their church,
Claypoole says. "Some kids
have joined a gym as a result of
my weight loss. They come and
talk to me about life issues,
but fitness issues as well.
"I like being a source of
encouragement for them."

DIFFERENT PATHS TO GOAL
When one person slims down,
those around him or her are
more likely to lose, according
to a groundbreaking study by
researchers at Harvard Medical
School and the University of
California-San Diego, released


last summer. And the miles
don't matter, the researchers
found. If you have a close
friend or a sibling who lives
one mile or a thousand miles
away, that person's weight loss
oi gain can have an impact on
your weight.
That was certainly the case
for sisters Griffis and Moon.

t first about working out or
you have an accountability
hat enthusiasm."

SColt Davis

A financial management
analyst, Griffis weighed 186
pounds in February 2006
and slimmed down to 130
pounds in a little more than
a year by following Jenny
Craig, a program that includes
consultations and portion-
controlled, pre-packaged meals
and snacks. She also exercised
religiously during the weight
loss and continues to do so,
working out most days for 30
to 45 minutes on the elliptical
machine or treadmill at the
gym and walking at lunch.
When Moon visited Griffis
last winter, she accidentally left
behind a size-14 outfit. Moon
told Griffis: "Don't mail it back.
I'm not going to need it."
At 5-foot-3, Moon weighed
171 pounds at the time. A single
mom and a receiving clerk at
a textile company, Moon says
the timing was perfect last
January to try to lose weight
because her office was running
a weight-loss contest.

She considered doing the
Jenny Craig program but
decided she couldn't afford it.
Instead, she decided to try the
Special K diet, which meant
eating the cereal twice a day.
She also took up walking and
worked up to walking several
miles a day.
Moon dropped 20 pounds in
three months and won $100 in
the contest at work.
Then she changed her menu
a little, eating Special K only
for breakfast and including
other foods in her diet. "I
wasn't starving, and I didn't
deprive myself. If I wanted hot
wings, I had hot wings, just in
moderation and without the
fries and Texas toast."
She continued closely
monitoring her food intake
and exercising regularly for
another four months until she
got down to 128 pounds.
She is maintaining her
weight now and no longer eats
any cereal. "I just had too much
cereal. I am sick of it."
Moon says Griffis has been
a guiding light throughout the
process. "Paulette would call
me in the morning and ask
me what I had for breakfast or
ask me what I was having for
lunch.
"She would also call and
ask me, 'What did the scale
read this morning?' I use
to think she was crazy for
jumping on the scale every
day, but I now do the same
thing. Getting on the scale
keeps you focused," Moon
says.

BLACKS MUST CONTROL THEIR OWN DESTINY


2C THE MIAMI TIMES, JANUARY 16-22, 2008


I .6d Srac


According to Keith
Lavarity, 'Made To Love You'
was the theme for the wedding
between Michael L. Combs
and Bertisha E. Jones, last
Saturday, at the Church of the
Open Door in the presence of
family and church members
and friends with Reverend Dr.
R. Joaquin Willis, officiating.
The bridal party consisted
of Tamika DeFreitas, maid
of honor, Lavert Combs,
best man, Destyni Combs
and Briana Reid, Jr. brides,
Quincy Jones, Jr. groom,
Alexis Fortson and Allise
Prevatt, flower girls, Geovar
Cash and Ketro Permenterm
ushers, along with Robert
Thomas, escort for the bride.
The bride and groom added
to the ceremonial tributes with
the husband who began by
saying, "Thirty-four years ago,
I began to dream about this
day..the day I ould marry an
angel. My life ahs been filled
with trials and tribulations,
heartache and pain, ups and
downs and good times and
bad times. But, I wouldn't
change a single moment in my
life because every year, every
day and every moment is what
brought me to this point.
As I stand here today, with
all of my prayers answered,
words can't begin to describe
the joy I have! You have given
me life when my soul was
dead. You gave me breath
when I couldn't breathe and
you have made me want to
be a better man. Once in a
lifetime, a magnificent woman
comes along like you and
reminds a man like me that
dreams do come true! Simply
put I love you today, tomorrow
and forever. Today is the day


that I married
my angel.
The bride
responded to
her husband
with, "I always
knew I would
find someone
to love me
the way you
do. Someone who is caring,
understanding, kind and
gentle; I found that in you. I
prayed that when God sent
me my husband, that my
prayers had been answered
when hearts met. You are
everything I have hoped and
prayed for and even more. You
make me a better woman more
and more each day. I pray
that I can help you to become
the man, father, and husband
that God intended you to be.
Our love will grow niore and
more with each day we
spend together, and
I look forward to the
memories that we will
create as a family.
As I stand here to
day, I love you with
everything in me.
Every morning and
every night I thank god
for allowing our hearts SCAV
to join as one!
Following the
presentation of the bride and
groom, the newly weds led the
congregation to the dining
room where Shalisia Mosley
had the honor of introducing
the wedding party, the first
dance, the toast by Lavert
Combs, cutting of the cake,
followed by the toss of the
bouquet and garter toss to the
lucky persons.
The bride and groom
thanked everyone including


Colette Combs, groom's
mother and Della Mullins,
bride's aunt and Dr. Willis for
his service before leaving on
an extended honeymoon to
the West Indies.

The Snowbirds from New
York City and those who were
in attendance at the home
of socialite Judy Scavella,
are still discussing the
unique evening spent at The
Gibraltar, the home Elliot J.
Scavella built for the purpose
of entertaining his Omega
brothers, family, and friends.
Since his death, Judy has
continued the Christmas Day
sumptious meal with cocktails
in the Caribbean room (Lower

deck and to the bar
for an eye opener,
followed by Connie
Beeks, Aventura,
Dorothy Hudgins
VELLA and guest, Pembroke

Brown and guest, Pembroke
Pines, along with Mr. and Mrs.
Brian Mitchell, Mitchellville,
MD, Mr. and Mrs. John

Mr. and Mrs. David Lazarus,

After an hour of listening
to jazz by the Psi Phi Band,
the guests were escorted to
the upper deck for dinner by
Socialite Judy Scavella. She
presented an array of food from

flounder, chicken, roast beef,
vegetables, and assorted cake
and ice cream.

and Mrs. Manuel Mendez,
Lauderdale, Audley Coakley
and guest, Pembroke Pines,
Mr. and Mrs. Keith R. Hylor,
Pembroke Pines, Beverly and
Lee Johnson.
When dinner was next
to closure, Dr. Strachan
introduced a game that
amused the guests to get
copies for their parties, while
Scavella presented a gift bag
for each one to take home
with them, as she reminded
them to prepare for next year
with more added features.
Everyone echoed, "that's what
I'm talking about".

Kudos go out to Baljean
Smith, chairman, retired
Omega Psi Phi brothers for
his gallant effort every other
Thursday to share the agenda.
He called upon Dr. Herman
Pratt to begin with a prayer,
followed by the minutes from
Elston Davis, report
on sick brothers,
treasurer's report by
Anthony Simons, and
an open discussion on
the St. Valentines's
Party.

Congratulations go out to
Joi Cash, Candice Norris,
and Dionne Plummer for
planning a "Surprise B/Day
party" for Regina Farrington,
who happened to be visiting
Miami from Tallahassee, along
with her daughter, Jazmine.
The elegant affair took place
at Violin's Banquet Hall, last
Saturday, for family members,
friends, and school mates
featuring Treble Clef, a great
quartet with Joel Edgecomb,
keyboardist, Ronald Clark,
drums, Kevin Norris,
bass, and Carolyn Brooks,
vocalist.
When the honored guest
arrived to attend someone
else's party, she was shocked
when everyone shouted,
"Surprise". She was surprise
and it showed on her face as she
attempted to balance herself
and find the nearest
seat, which was the
honoree seat.
The celebration
began when Joi arrived
with the programs
and this expectant
mother organized
S what had to be done
by turning it over
VES to Dionne Plummer,
emcee. She called
on Dekerra Pinkney for the
occasion, followed by a college
classmate selections from
Treble Cleft, and toast coming
from Michael Glover.
Plummer gave a brief "bio"


of Regina's life beginning in
high school college and her
present employment with
HRS,Tallahassee. Those who
took the time to shower her
with hugs and kisses included
LaDawn Farrington, Charles
Farrington, Derick Farrington,
William Johnson, Yvonne
Farrington, Mary Farrington,
grand mother, Jean Glover,
aunt, Ruth Lewis, aunt, Staci
Handfield, Vernon Aldain,
Barbara Blackshere, Willie
and Hilda Herman, and Dr.
Lorraine F. Strachan.


When Tim Brown, a
running back from Miami
Northwestern Bull Team,
graduated with honors, he was
scouted by several prominent
colleges and universities and
chose Rutgers University to
matriculate and play football.
Brown joining the team gave
them new life and catapulted
them to 1st place during the
football of 2007 and a BCA
Bowl bid to play Ball State
in the Independence Ball at
Toronto, Canada.
Last Saturday, at the
Independence Bowl, Brown
became a hero and scored his
third touchdown of his football
year. Several hours later he was
back in Miami and his mother,
Helen Brown, brought him
to Ebenezer UMC, where he
attended service, last Sunday.
He became a big hit from those
who knew him as a football
player and they encouraged
him to keep on climbing.
Brown is also the back-
up player for Ray Rice who
rushed for 2,000 yards during
the year and 150-yards in
last week's game. Rice may
leave this year to be drafted,
while Brown will be the star,
according to his aunt, Eloise
Johnson, and Alice Hanna,
grandmother. Keep Brown
in mind when the season
begins.

$30M gift brings solid footing and new name to Arts Center


Adrienne Arsht helps the Performing Arts

Center in more ways than one


National business leader and
philanthropist, Adrienne Arsht,
will bring Miami's performing
arts center financial security
with a $30 million donation.
The gift was announced
today by Sherwood (Woody)
Weiser, Foundation Chairman
Emeritus. In recognition of
the gift, the former Carnival
Center for the Performing
Arts will be renamed the
Adrienne Arsht Center for the
Performing Arts of Miami-Dade
County. Carnival Corporation
graciously agreed to relinquish
the naming rights in favor of
this new major donation.
"With this landmark gift,
Adrienne Arsht puts Miami's
performing arts center on a
whole new sound financial
footing ensuring the long-
term stability of the center and
positioning it to truly fulfill
its mission," said Weiser, who
negotiated the deal along with
Trust Chairman Ricky Arriola.


"Both Adrienne and Carnival
have shown tremendous
civic commitment by putting
community interests first
to make this happen," said
Arriola.
The Center will receive
the $30 million over the
next three years. Of the $13
million the Center receives
immediately, $4 million will
go into working capital to
fund Center programming,
$7 million will pay off a bank
loan and $2 million recently
given to the Center by Carnival
will be refunded as part
of the termination of their
ten-year, $10 million dollar
commitment. The Center will
keep the original Arison family
gift of $10 million in return for
naming of the Studio Theater,
bridge and Art Deco Tower.
It is expected funds from the
Arsht gift donated in years two
and three will add to working
capital and complete funding of


the Center's $16 million dollar
endowment giving the Center
long-term financial security.
Arsht, who has been a strong
supporter of the Center since
its inception and has been a
supporter of the arts for many
years said, "I hope this gift
inspires others to act on behalf
of their passions, whatever
they may be, for the greater
good of the global community."
Arsht was instrumental in
helping the Center transition
to new leadership by funding
the salary for interim president
and CEO Larry Wilker. Arsht
collaborated with Wilker fifteen
years ago when he was CEO of
the Kennedy Center and she
served as chair of Kennedy
Center Productions, Inc.
"First, let me extend'a very
big thank you to Adrienne
Arsht for making this most
generous contribution," said
Howard Frank, vice chairman
and chief operating officer of
Carnival Corporation & plc.
"Carnival's interest has always
been in doing what is best for
the Performing Arts Center and
the community. We originally


ADRIENNE ARSHT
had naming rights to the
Concert Hall, based on a $10
million contribution and we
were quite content with that.
When we were asked to double
our financial commitment in
exchange for naming rights
to the overall facility and to
relinquish those rights to the
Concert Hall, we agreed that it
was the right thing to do. So
this is the second time we have
stepped back from naming


a facility as we once again
want to do what is in the best
interest of the Performing Arts
Center and the community,"
Frank said.
Wilker noted that today's
action gives the Center greater
ability to fulfill its commitment
to offering the highest quality
and widest diversity of
programming. "The Adrienne
Arsht Center for the Performing
Arts now has all the tools it
needs to emerge as one of the
great performing arts centers
of our time."
About the Adrienne Arsht
Center for Performing Arts of
Miami-Dade County
The Center offers South
Florida audiences the best and
most diverse theater, music
and dance. The Center hosts
many local, national and
internationalarts organizations
and performers and is home

BLACKS MUST CONTROL THEIR CWN I)DESTINY


D 8 THE MIAMI TIMES JANU 8


Real estate or the stock market


Many people have
asked and wonder,
"Which investment is
the best way to achieve
financial wealth?"
Well, for many years
most folks felt that
real state is much less
riskier and more stable
than investing in the
stock market. But
if you take a look at
how drastic real estate
values have dropped
recently, it might be
time to rethink your
old thoughts. Over
the last 28 years I've
invested in both, my
first professional
license was in real
estate, and back then


(1980) the
c u r r e n,t
interest rate
was around
1 8 % ,
borrowing a
money was
expensive, and real
estate values were
growing at a snails
pace. For many years
real estate has been
thought of as a safe
investment, especially
among black folks, but
if you take a look at
real estate values over
the last year, you'd
notice real estate has
been just as volatile as
the stock market.


REAL ESTATE
To be a real estate
baron, it takes a long
time. Most folks choose
real estate over stock
simply because it's all
they know. The average
black person wasn't
raised around friends
or family members
who invested and
made a lot of money
in the stock market,
but mostly everybody
Black knows someone
who've appeared to
prosper by way,of real
estate.

EXPENSIVE
Rather you realize it
or not, buying, holding,
and 'maintaining real
estate property is very
expensive. If you think
the stock market is
expensive and risky,
take a close look at
owning property. Every
year lots of money goes
into the up keep and


maintenance of real
estate. Case and point:
every year you have
to pay for property
insurance coverage, at
today's cost, insurance
is a heavy bill to
pay especially since
Florida (hurricanes)
and every state in the
country has some sort
of weather problems
year in and year out. I
know someone who has
10 houses and pays
about $30,000 dollars
each year in insurance
premiums. Over the
next 10 years he will
have paid out over
$300,000 dollars to
insurance companies,
and that's only if the
rates don't increase.
What about the cost
of repairs each and
every year, renters can
really kill your profits
quicker than you can
get rid of them. How
safe is something


called an investment
where you can loose
everything you've put
in after paying monthly
mortgage payments for
10 or 20 years and you
miss a few payments
and they foreclose and
take your property.
Don't get me wrong,
real estate is a great
investment, the problem
is that so many people
have used it in the
wrong way. Too much of
anything is never good,
the problem is, we (low
income and middle
class) really don't
understand anything
about other investment
alternatives .
Understanding other
types of growth
investments require
us to think and use
our brains more. For
the most part, we
have been taught not
to think outside of the
box.

you think set-up the
whole interest barring

mortgage programs in
the first place, trust
me, not the middle

low income folks. It
doesn't take 30 years
to pay back the money
you've borrowed, and it
shouldn't. Talk about
highway robbery, but
the whole mortgage
business is based on
deception. My time is

Secrets of maximizing hidden money


By John Tolomer
Florida Market President
Commerce Bank

Cha-ching.
You just found a
$5 bill stuffed in the
back pocket of a pair
of shorts you haven't
worn in months. You
are $5 richer than you
were a minute ago, and
it's $5 you didn't even
know you had. Talk
about hidden money!
Finding your own
stash of "hidden"
money can be easier
than a once-a-year
chance occurrence.
It can be as simple as
making a few changes
to your financial habits
to help you save money
you don't even realize
you're spending.
Here are a few tips
that will help you find
and keep your "hidden"
money.

AUTOMATED TELLER
MACHINE FEES
Americans pay a total
of $4.4 billion each year
in ATM fees, according
to Bankrate.com. A
share of those billions
likely belongs to you.
When account
holders use an ATM
that is not operated by
their own bank, they
often get hit with two
fees one from the
bank that operates
the ATM and one from
their own bank for
using another bank's
ATM. Account holders
are charged an average
of more than $3 each
time they withdraw
cash from an ATM not
operated by their own
bank.
Almost all banks,
in fact 99 percent of
them, charge non-
customers to use their
ATMs. However, there
are banks that do not
charge customers for
using an ATM outside
of their network, and
also reimburse their
customers for 'any
non-customer fees
they receive from other
banks.
Review your recent
bank statements and
identify how much
you are charged for
withdrawing cash from
an ATM outside of your
bank's network. If you
find you use ATMs
fairly regularly and are
charged each time you
do so, then it's time
to consider switching
your checking account
to a bank that will not
hit you with ATM fees.

CREDIT CARD FEES
Creditcard companies
are notorious for
slamming customers
with fees. The most
common fees include
annual charges, late
payments, over-
the-limit penalties,
cash advances, and
transfers. According
to RK Hammer, a
bankcard advisory
firm, card issuers
took in $13 billion in
fees in 2006. They also
took in $12 billion in
late fees. However, if
you shop around, you
may find credit cards
that don't charge any
fees, or at least not for
the services you use.
Review your credit
card statements and
identify fees you're
hit with each time
you swipe your card.
Use online resources,
such as Bankrate.
corn, to compare your
results to other credit
card companies and
determine if a switch
will save you money.
Some companies tout
their credit cards as
being free or no-fee,
but hit subscribers
with charges for cash
advances, transfers,
etc.
If you plan on using
your credit card
overseas or to make


foreign purchases,
use a card with
a low conversion
rate. Credit card
companies on average
charge 1 percent of
the purchase total to
make the currency
exchange. Card


issuers or banks
most often charge an
additional 2 percent
fee for the exchange,
resulting in a 3 percent
charge to card users.
Does it sound like
credit card fees are
chipping away at
your hidden money?
That's because they
are. However, there
are banks, such as
Commerce Bank, that
will absorb conversion
fees charged by credit
card companies.


SPARE CHANGE
In addition to saving
money by cutting back
on fees, it's possible
you have money sitting
around that is going
completely unused. It
is estimated the average
U.S. household has $30
in unused change lying
around. That money
can go a long way
when it helps to buy
groceries or fill your gas
tank, or to buy yourself
something special you
otherwise wouldn't have


purchased. With the
days of rolling coins long
behind us, it's easy to
turn that spare change
into cash. Better yet,
take those coins, count
them, and deposit them
into a savings account
and collect interest.
Coin machines can
be found in many
locations, including
banks and grocery
stores. But, make
sure you look into the
machine's fees before
dumping your coins.
