Dear Girlfriend, I am so tired of being alone I don’t know what to do. I am bored. I am unhappy and have been eating wayyy too much. I didn’t go to any of the Superbowl festivities for fear of being exposed and catching covid. However, I did get in my car and ride around the city. To my surprise, Ybor City and Channel side drive were full of people. It looked as if everyone else is living their best life and I am just here. Am I the only person staying at home? Are you still going out there? I am usually invited to someone’s Superbowl party, but not this year. Did you have a Superbowl party? What is a single woman over 40 to do now? Stuck at Home Dear Stuck at Home. You are free to get up, get dressed and go. Recognize that FEAR will stifle you. You have to make a decision to live your life abundantly... but carefully. If you have been making statements that you are not going anywhere, people are respecting your decision and you will not be on anyone’s short invitation list and will not be invited anywhere. No one is going to try to pull you out of your comfort zone. You are responsible for your own happiness and your own social life. You cannot wait on someone to call you. You have to do the calling, suggesting and inviting. The Super Bowl has come and gone and we have the pictures to prove it. So Bump that! Check out the center fold and my story about Pat Nix’s parties. You have already missed all that, but you don’t have to miss anything else. Come to our Valentines Affair! My new focus is Valentines day. What are you going to do for Valentines? It is this Sunday. Let’s keep it moving before you find yourself crying that you missed that too. Find something red, pink, or lavenders that you look good in, put it on and join us for our 4th annual Valentines affair at the 5508 Courtyard for an evening under the stars. You do not have to be alone for Valentines. You can be with us. Stop worrying and come on out. Know that you must keep your distance and wear a mask when close to others. . Everything you want or need for Valentines will be right out there. Shoot you may even meet a man. If not, at least you will have the opportunity to be around people again and the chance to eat, drink, dance, laugh and be merry. We are going to have a great time. Bonnie Lady Glam is going to teach everyone a new line dance. DJ Tee Pee is going to play all the old school jams and plenty of new school. There will be $10 dinner plates for sale and plenty of treats. To top it off there will be live entertainment by BEZEL Sanchez. Call a friend and meet them out there or come alone. The Sunday before Superbowl weekend, Daryl and I rode downtown for brunch at Jackson’s and ate outside on the patio with another couple. We passed by the NFL experience going on and I realized the world was going on without us ...just with a mask. We made up our minds then that we were going to do something for Super Bowl Sunday. Even though I did not throw any Superbowl parties, there were super bowl parties going on outside my radio station in the 5508 Courtyard Thursday-Saturday. Some folk thought it was my event but it was all Pat Nix of Nixclusive. The good thing was masks were required for admission. People were there from New York, Houston, Cincinnati Kansas City, Tampa Bay and some of everywhere safely enjoying themselves This is your life.. Live it! See you Valentines. HEYY!!! N-Touch News

You Heard It From ME Daryl Johnson CEO Questionable Calls Taint Wins I am a Buccaneer fan and I have all the gear to prove it! I have been a Buc fan since I moved here in 1986 in the days of Jimmy Giles, Lee Roy Selmon and Doug Williams. Calvin Maghee, Donnie Elder, Ricky Reynolds, Mark Robinson, James Evans and James Wilder were my friends. After we began N-Touch News, we had press passes and we published the coaches quotes in every issue. I was even blessed to attend the Super Bowl in San Diego. I have been there for the good times and the bad! I’m sharing all of this so you will know the Bucs are my team. Tampa Bay had a clear win over Kansas City in Super Bowl LV. Not a touchdown was given up by the Buccaneers Defense. It was said by legendary Coach Paul ‘Bear’ Bryant, “Defense wins championships.” While I realize the awarding of the high esteemed accolade such as MVP has its own process, N-Touch news MVP for the game is Defensive Co-

ordinator, Todd Bowles, . I had a friendly wager with a buddy of mine in Dallas, Texas for the Buccaneers to win. I was pretty confident of my bet, with Mahommes having turf toe and a few players out. However, I still gave him a disclaimer before the bet because I didn’t want to hear any excuses when we won. I knew from being Black in America, that if given a chance the ref would always rule in favor of the Buccaneers now. for a Tom Brady win. We call Tom Brady the great white hope, not to take away from his G.O.A.T. title because he is all that! This time as a Buccaneer he was in my favor. Questionable calls will always compromise the competition. All football players and coaches aspire to the Super Bowl believing they will play a fair game on a level playing field in front of millions of witnesses. This great matchup needed no help from the referees but that didn’t stop them from interfering.

It was obvious the continuous bad calls affected the spirit of the game and the Kansas City players. The NFL has to minimize the impropriety in the officiating of the game and the appearance of cheating The bad call made against Bashaud Breeland with Mike Evans was really incidental contact but one could argue that technically it was a foul. In the regular season or the playoffs, that call would not have been made. That same officiating should carry to the Super Bowl. When Tyrone Mathieu fouled Mike Evans two plays later in the end zone, that was waaay off the mark. An uncatchable ball by anyone’s eyesight that in all likelihood would have been made during the regular season and the playoffs but not in Super Bowl LV. I had 14 people socially distanced at my home in my backyard where we enjoyed the game on my big screen. Eight of the fourteen

Buccaneer Coaching Staff

were Buccaneer fans and six were Chief fans. Everytime a bad call was made, there was no argument amongst us that the call was bad. We were all in agreement. That says something about our integrity. Questionable calls only taint the win and the NFL is responsible for ensuring that even the appearance of partiality and cheating is minimized. It is for that reason that the NFL has to take out all suspicion of impropriety in the game calls One of the jokes made at my Super Bowl gathering was Patrick Mahomes and Tyrann Mathieu probably felt like filing an EEOC discrimination complaint after that game lol. ` The good news is, Tom Brady texted an apology to Tyrann after the game on another questionable call in the game. What Tom Brady represented for a lot of people over the age of 40 is that you can still be relevant in the game In today’s fight for justice and fairness it is incumbent to eliminate questionable calls and increase consistency in officiating games to reduce the suspicion of cheating and racism in the NFL. Brady and Gronkowski had a great game, and Brady was named MVP. Yet, a subtle feeling of white privilege still lingeries in a predominantly Black sport. His award also slightly overlooked the awesome greatness of the Buccaneer defense. Otherwise, it was a great day for Tampa Bay!

MacDill Moments MacDill Air Force Base located on the southern end of the Tampa peninsula, has been a staple in the Tampa Bay area for more than 80 years. Home of United States Special Operations Command (SOCOM) and United States Central Command (CENTCOM), 6th Air Mobility Wing along with the 927th Air Refueling Wing, MacDill could easily make a claim as one of the top 5 key bases in the United States of America arsenal. I arrived at MacDill on a hot day in mid-July 2000 for a reserve assignment at SOCOM. It was my first time to the Tampa area after completing my initial boot camp training in Orlando and my A-school instruction in Pensacola, both in 1986. While on my reserve assignment at MacDill, I completed orientation with a class of 50 active duty and reserve personnel. At the conclusion of one presentation about the status of special operation forces and training, I asked the presenter whether any women will be considered for training in special forces programs? The room fell to a dead silence. The question had never been asked before. Today, there are more women serving in special forces billets than ever before. My initial reserve tour at MacDill lasted until December 2000. I would return to MacDill under mobilization orders after the September 11, 2001 attack on America in January 2002, again at SOCOM. In addition to my duties at the base, I was able to make key connections in the Tampa community. One of the first contacts was with Daryl and Tammy Johnson of N-Touch News. On my frequent visits to the John F. Germany Library in the heart of downtown Tampa, I would often pick up

copies of N-Touch News publications and be enlightened by the educational and uplifting articles in the complete color paper. I reached out to Daryl in Ybor City for lunch and was completely elated to join the news team writing sports and community articles while assisting with distribution of the paper. My association with paper grew into establishing a non-profit organization (CAMJ&T) CAMJET, in honor of my parents Joyce and Ted Jones and partnering with my hometown Camden, New Jersey friend Chris Collins, in the creation of the first ever CAM-TAM (2004) exchange programs in which high school students from Camden visited Tampa and the following year, Tampa students visited Camden. Daryl and Tammy’s youngest daughter Kindall “Sunshine” (now a U.S. diplomat )was one of the students from Tampa to visit Camden. I fondly remember Sunshine enthusiastically stating “I want to go to Camden,” when she heard about the exchange program. MacDill opened many opportunities including to be a part of the SOCOM Bucs flag crew with Navy Chief Michael “Shane” Linton and a host

of volunteers. MacDill in 2005 experienced their first ever division 3 college level basketball program and I was honored to serve as its first head coach. From 2005-06 our men’s basketball program played college teams from around Florida while also competing in the military SEMAC (South East Military Athletic Conference). Air Force Terry Williams, Kevin ‘KP’ Phillips, Kendric Greene, Remero Green, Army Johnny Rodgers, were among some of the members of the team. MacDill has continued to grow with a new hospital, new buildings for both SOCOM and CENTCOM and a Navy Reserve facility. While on a reserve assignment with US Africa Command (AFRICOM), also a tenant member of the MacDill community, it was an honor to serve and be in the presence of many who would become bright lights and great leaders of America. One such individual is our newest Secretary of Defense, the Honorable Lloyd Austin. Retired General Austin served as Commander of Central Command and it would never be unusual to see General Austin around the base. ‘Made at MacDill’ could easily be a phrase of success for many who serve and work at Tampa’s premier military facility.

Super Bowl Weekend: Pat Nix Does it Again With the pandemic at hand finding an open outside venue was top priority for promoters hoping to cash in on Super Bowl weekend.

Rapper Entrepreneur Wes McKay

A competition was held giving artists the opportunity to perform in a Super Bowl virtual concert in Tampa with exposure to 300,000 plus viewers. Those viewers will vote for their favorite artist to perform at the B.E.T. Awards in Los Angeles on June 15th all expenses paid. Wes McKay, a 29 year old Pensacola rapper submitted his song, “The Dash” on December 4, 2020, which had recently been #1 on Spotify. Wes was notified that he was one of the 5 artists eligible to win the $10,000 stimulus package. Wes performed in Tampa Bay with his music label partner 4eva 4way. When asked about his Super Bowl experience, Wes responded, “The Superbowl weekend was amazing. I saw and met famous people for the first time. I now have the feeling that this can and will be my life. It was a great feeling and I am so very grateful to God that HE has blessed me with my talents. Wes attended Pensacola High School and is the founder of N.S.G (No Surprise Gang) Label. If you missed his super Bowl performance Wes McKay and 4eva 4way are scheduled to perform at the Coast to Coast Concert in Miami, Florida.

NFL Foundations Team up with Skills Center for Virtual Ribbon Cutting In their third decade of giving back to the community, the Forever Young Foundation, with their partners the NFL Foundation, and The Skills Center have landed on an amazing location for the newest 8 to 80 Zone esports arena. The esports arena will be a free resource to underserved students who want to learn and compete with their peers in their community and across the globe. 8 to 80 zones are a collaboration between NFL Hall of Fame Quarterback and founder of the Forever Young Foundation Steve Young and NFL Hall of Fame Wide Receiver

Jerry Rice. These Zones create access to state of the art gaming technology and levels the competitive esports playing field for youth in underserved communities. Allowing them to compete on industry leading equipment partnered with training from professional mentors across the country. "Jerry and I believe that parents of youth who are passionate about gaming should take time to understand the learning potential and opportunities that esports brings," said Steve Young. "Gaming and the competitive esports world provides a step-

ping stone into coding, publishing, and mass media art. We as parents should embrace this." "The NFL Foundation is proud to support Steve and Jerry in this venture that will provide a multitude of opportunities for students in both esports and STEM," said Alexia Gallagher, the NFL's Vice President of Philanthropy and Executive Director of the NFL Foundation. " We know the 8 to 80 esports arena will positively impact youth in the Florida community for years to come." The space is a classroom that provides students with hands-on train-

ing in broadcast production, online streaming, audio engineering, video editing, and game development. These centers have evolved into much needed resources for a world that requires virtual learning and social distancing. We have added elements of online classroom tutorials and learning opportunities for educators to support the virtual learning mandated due to COVID.. The mission of The Skills Center is to utilize athletics as the mechanism to create change through academic success, life skills and mentoring for young people ages 3-18.

YMCA Offers Free Diabetes Prevention Program to Medicare Participants Qualified Medicare participants can partake in the YMCAs of Tampa Bay’s evidence-based, CDC-approved Diabetes Prevention Program at no cost to them. The 12-month lifestyle modification program has been proven to reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes for those who are at risk. The Y Diabetes Prevention Program is offered both in-person and virtually at YMCAs across Tampa Bay. A trained lifestyle coach provides a supportive environment where participants learn how to incorporate healthy eating, physical activity and behavior modification into their daily lives. Proven results show the program can prevent or delay new cases of type 2 diabetes in adults by 58 percent and by as much as 71 percent in those over age 60. “365 days ago I sat in a classroom at the YMCA and signed an agreement to join the Diabetes Prevention Program, go to meetings and follow their guidelines to be healthier and reduce my risk of developing diabetes,” shares Cindy Reavis. “I’m thrilled to report success. To date, I have lost 87 pounds and lowered my A1C from 5.8 TO 5.5 which means I am no longer prediabetic! This program and my instructors have literally changed my life!” More than one in three Americans (88 million people) has prediabetes, according to the CDC. Prediabetes

is a condition in which a person’s blood glucose is elevated, but not high enough for a diabetes diagnosis. Only 7 percent of those with prediabetes know they have it but with awareness and simple actions, people with prediabetes may prevent the onset of diabetes, a leading cause of heart disease, stroke, blindness, kidney disease and nerve disease. “Committed to improving the health and well-being of Tampa Bay, the Y wants all community members to understand their risk for prediabetes and steps to take to avoid developing type 2 diabetes,” says Tampa Y Healthy Living Director Dawn Kita. “Developing type 2 diabetes not only puts a tremendous strain on our healthcare system, but impacts the lives of millions of people and their families each year.” Many insurance providers, including Medicare, Medicare Advantage, BlueCross BlueShield, Cigna, Florida Blue and United Healthcare offer this program as a covered benefit for anyone who has been diagnosed as having prediabetes or who is at a high risk for developing type 2 diabetes. To qualify, Medicare recipients must have an A1C between 5.76.4 or a fasting glucose of 110-125. Financial assistance and payment plans are available for other qualifying individuals based on household income.

Local McDONALD’S Franchises Declare 2021 “The Year Of Ronald McDonald House Charities” The Every Penny Counts Campaign Makes a Contribution from various menu items with a goal to raise $1,000,000 Local McDonald’s Owner/Operators have pledged to increase their donation efforts for Central Florida Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC), who’ve lost millions of dollars during the pandemic. The Franchisees have committed to raising $1M with the “Every Penny Counts” campaign to support the local chapters. A portion of each sale of the Happy Meal ®, our World Famous French Fries® and Shamrock Shake® will go back to RMHC. As a result of COVID-19, local RMHC Chapters have suffered a significant loss in funding and donations, and this campaign aims to offset this loss. The success of the campaign wouldn’t be possible without the community’s participation. Local restaurants welcome customers to Round Up (round up the order to the nearest dollar) or donate $1, $3 or $5 for RMHC with their purchase in the Drive Thru, lobby and the McDonald’s app. “The Ronald McDonald House Charities is very special to McDon-

ald’s. It’s been a very tough year for everyone, especially our community-serving organizations. We are committed to RMHC and helping them keep families together during their most challenging times,” says Chris Frost, local McDonald’s Franchisee. “This is a community effort for sure. We, as owners, are grateful for our customers. As long as they are continuously coming in, we are able to donate more!” One million dollars equates to 9,615 overnight stays at the RMHC house, which provides a supportive “home-away-from-home” for families and their children who are receiving medical treatment at area hospitals. They provide guest families with all the comforts of home – plus a local support network – so they can focus on their children’s healing. This campaign is one of various ways that McDonald’s continues to support Ronald McDonald House Charities and its network of local chapters.

Go Ahead and Get your Laugh On Birth Control Pills

Mrs. Smith, an elderly woman, went into the doctor’s office. When the doctor asked why she was there, she replied, “ It’s Super Bowl weekend and I would like to have some birth control pills.” Quite surprised, the doctor thought for a minute and then said, “Excuse me, Mrs. Smith, but you’re 75 years old. What possible use could you have for birth control pills?” The woman responded, “They help me sleep better.” The doctor thought some more and continued, “How in the world do birth control pills help you to sleep?” The woman said, “I put them in my granddaughter’s orange juice and I sleep better at night.”

The Mother n Law

Two women came before wise King Solomon, dragging between them a young man in a three-piece suit. "This young CPA agreed to marry my daughter," said one. No! He agreed to marry MY daughter," said the other. And so they haggled before the King, until he demanded silence. "My sword! Bring me my biggest sword," said Solomon, "and we shall hew the young man in half. Each of you shall receive a half." "Fine. Sounds good to me," said the first lady. But the other woman said, "Oh Sire, do not spill innocent blood. Let this other woman's daughter marry him." The wise king did not hesitate a moment. "Indeed, the accountant must marry the first lady's daughter," he proclaimed. "But she was willing to hack him in two!" exclaimed the king's court. "Precisely!" said wise King Solomon. "That shows she is the TRUE mother-in-law."

The Worker

A guy goes door to door looking for work. One homeowner hands him a brush and a can of paint and offers him $150 to paint his porch. A few hours later, the guy comes back to the homeowner and says, “I’m finished. But you should know that your car’s a Ferrari, not a Porsche.” Page 14

A Sensitive Guy

A woman meets a man in a bar. They talk; they connect; they end up leaving together. They get back to his place, and as he shows her around his apartment, she notices that one wall of his bedroom is completely filled with soft, sweet, cuddly teddy bears. There are three shelves in the bedroom, with hundreds and hundreds of cute, cuddly teddy bears, carefully placed in rows covering the entire wall! It was obvious that he had taken quite some time to lovingly arrange them and she was immediately touched by the amount of thought he had put into organizing the display. There were small bears all along the bottom shelf, medium-sized bears covering the length of the middle shelf, and huge, enormous bears running all the way along the top shelf. She found it strange for an obviously masculine guy to have such a large a collection of Teddy Bears, but doesn’t mention this to him, and actually is quite impressed by his sensitive side. They share a bottle of wine and continue talking and, after a while, she finds herself thinking, “Oh my God! Maybe, this guy could be the one! Maybe he could be the future father my children?” She turns to him and kisses him lightly on the lips. He responds warmly. They continue to kiss, the passion builds, and he romantically lifts her in his arms and carries her into his bedroom where they rip off each other’s clothes and make hot, steamy love. She is so overwhelmed that she responds with more passion, more creativity, more heat than she has ever known. After an intense, explosive night of raw passion with this sensitive guy, they are lying there together in the afterglow. The woman rolls over, gently strokes his chest and asks coyly, “Well, how was it?” The guy gently smiles at her, strokes her cheek, looks deeply into her eyes, and says, “Help yourself to any prize from the middle shelf.”

Three Sisters

There were 3 sisters living comfortably together. They were 92, 94 and 95 yrs. old. The oldest went upstairs one evening to take a bath. As she was getting in the tub with one foot in and one foot out, she called down to her sisters, "Am I getting in the tub or am I getting out of the tub?" The 94 yr. old decided to go upstairs to see if she could help figure out the situation. She got to the 3rd step and stopped - then called out, "Was I going up the stairs or was I coming down the stairs?" The 92 year old, sitting at the kitchen table, thought I better knock on wood that I never get as bad as my sisters. As she knocked on the kitchen table she said, Now was that the front door or the back door?"

The Saint

There were two evil brothers. They were rich, and used their money to keep their ways from the public eye. They even attended the same church, and looked to be perfect Christians. Then, their pastor retired, and a new one was hired. Not only could the new pastor see right through the brothers' deceptions, but he also spoke well and true. The church started to swell in numbers and a fund-raising campaign was needed and started to build a new assembly. All of a sudden, one of the brothers died. The remaining brother sought out the new pastor the day before the funeral and handed him a check for the amount needed to finish paying for the new building. "I have only one condition," said the brother. "At his funeral, you must say my brother was a saint." The pastor gave his word, and deposited the check. The next day, at the funeral, the pastor did not hold back. "He was an evil man," he said. "He cheated on his wife and abused his family." After going on in this vein for a small time, he concluded the Eulogy with, "But, compared to his brother, he was a saint."

The Squirrel

A man comes home after a hard day’s work and opens the refrigerator to get a soda. Inside, he sees a squirrel taking a nap. “What are you doing in my fridge?” the man asks. The squirrel opens one sleepy eye and says, “Isn’t this a Westinghouse?” “Um, yes,” the man replies. “It is.” “Well then,” the squirrel says, shutting his eyes again, “I am twying to west.”

The Waiting Room

Four men are in the hospital waiting room because their wives are having babies. A nurse goes up to the first guy and says, “Congratulations! You’re the father of twins.” “That’s odd,” answers the man. “I work for the Minnesota Twins!” A nurse says to the second guy, “Congratulations! You’re the father of triplets!” “That’s weird,” answers the second man. “I work for the 3M company!” A nurse tells the third man, “Congratulations! You’re the father of quadruplets!” “That’s strange,” he answers. “I work for the Four Seasons hotel!” The last man is groaning and banging his head against the wall. “What’s wrong?” the others ask. “I work for 7 Up!”

The Priest &Rabbi

A catholic priest and a rabbi find them sitting next to each other on a long journey, and so after some hesitation they start to talk to each other. After discussing the weather and the cricket, the priest turns to the rabbi and says that he thought it was rather strange that he was not allowed to eat pork, and asked him whether he ever had. The rabbi replied, "Well, when I was a small boy, I did in fact taste a small piece of bacon." "What was it like?" asked the priest. The rabbi replied: "Not nearly as good as sex."
