Rerun from 2018

Hopefully this will Bless your Memorial Day Weekend! Dear Girlfriend, We have started a new tradition at our home. We host an annual 4th of July cook out. However, a few family members and friends never cease to amaze me with their tacky behavior. You had a post on your face book page years ago about behavior at the 4th of July picnic. Will you please please share it in the paper. My folk read Dear Girlfriend like it’s scripture. 4th of July host

Rules for Attending A Cookout

1) Do not show up if you were not invited by the host. I don’t care who you think you know! 2) If you were invited, do not bring extra people with you...Unless you ask. 3) Always ask do you need me to bring anything. Even if the answer is no, you should still not show up empty handed. 4) Do not arrive early unless the host confirmed you in advance. 5) When you bring something, bring it with the intentions of leaving it. No taking things back. Except your dishes 6) If you have not contributed to the event, you “ARE NOT” entitled to leave with anything wrapped in aluminum foil or in a Tupperware container unless these 5 things have happened: A) Everyone else has eaten B) People are not still arriving C) All the guest are leaving D) The hostess tells you to. E) Don’t ask, wait for the offer 7) If you can not control your children, don’t bring them. (Sorry) 8) The cookout is not a free baby sitting service. If you bring your child YOU watch your child and FIX your child’s plate. 9) Everyone has rules at their home. Be respectful of rules or don’t come 10) Don’t show up looking like a hoe nor sagging, Don’t want to see your azz 11) Smile. Be pleasant. This is a great time for you to learn the latest line dance. Move around. Get up and dance. 12) The Saints will mingle with the Aints, if you are too snooty for that, stay home! 13) If you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all. No negativity! 14) If you smoke, remove yourself from the table and return after you finish. No one wants that stuff blowing in there face and over their food. 15) The food is not going to run out. Stop making these gigantic plates. ing Making yourself look half raised and greedy and being wasteful 16) Stop asking who made the potato salad. If I told you, you wouldn’t know them any way! 17) Before you trip about the sodas not being “Name Brand” just enjoy 18) Before you open a fresh bottle of water, finish the one you started. 19) Do not drop cigarette butts, beer caps or any litter on the lawn. Clean up behind yourself and your children. 20) If you drop it, pick it up. If you open it, close it. If you waste it, clean it up. Don’t just walk a way, It is some one’s home! Page 3


Former Buccaneer #86 Calvin Magee Transitions after Massive Heart Attack

Southern University graduate, husband, father, coach and dear friend to many, Calvin Magee, left a legacy of love. Calvin Magee made a name for himself as a Buccaneer tight end with soft hands long before the Buccaneer colors were red and Pewter. When we arrived in Tampa back in 1986 our families became friends. My daughter Tamina and his daughter Jade were inseparable. Even though I didn’t know much about football then, we had a game we

played as couples, Pictionary, and he was just as competitive at that. Back then, the Buccaneers had a Hooters discount, so on weekends he would order wings and play at each other’s homes while our children played upstairs. Calvin, being an attentive father, noticed that every time they came over, my son, Braxton would go put on his suit coat on. Calvin said, “boy I’m watching you.” Calvin was the teenage Ninja Turtle at his birthday party, We still have that autographed football he gave my son. Being a Buccaneer never went to his head, Calvin stayed humble. Life after the NFL was challenging but good with Rose by his side. Calvin began his coaching career at Tampa Catholic, then to University of South Florida thanks to Lee Roy Selmon. From there he relocated the family to the University of West

Virginia for a few years, followed by Michigan University. In 2011 Calving served as the offensive coordinator for the Pittsburgh Panthers on a brief stint and then went to the University of Arizona where he served as their offensive coordinator and running back coach. There he settled in, bought a dream home and his adult kids relocated there to be with them. Calvin also did a brief stint a few hours away at the University of Mexico as their offensive coordinator. Continuously doing what he loved, he accepted an assignment at the University of Mississippi in 2019 where he served as their Tight End’s Coach. Last year on his last assignment Calvin and Rose purchased another home in Alabama and were enjoying life as empty nesters when this occurred. After 2 days and 12 attempted resuscitations and being told he was brain dead, Rose and the chil-

dren all agreed to release him from life support and said their goodbyes. Calvin smoothly took his last breath and transitioned at 11:16 am on a Friday . Calvin’s Celebration of life will be held in his hometown of New Orleans at Booker T. Washington high school where his love story began with his wife Rose of 30+ years. They were blessed with 3 children, Jade, Bryson and Jasmine and 4 grand children.

N-Touch News, serving the Tampa Bay Area Since 1996 N-Touch News


You Heard It From ME I must confess, as a young man I paid for my fair share of abortions. Foolish evenings of impromptu sex with girlfriends that I was not willing to commit my life to, made me re-act without ever knowing if they were actually mine or not. However, I was not willing to take that chance of being told, “you are the father.” I can’t begin to imagine how it would have affected the life I have now with the wife of my choice. Our generation was fortunate to live during a time that abortion was legal. Had it not been, there would be a lot more unwanted pregnancies out there. Grant it, there is always a feeling of remorse and shame. Then there is a feeling of relief and joy. There is a feeling of “I wonder”, and what if. But, at the end of the day you are happy that you had the choice to determine the outcome of your life. Whether or not you made the right choice, it was yours to make. If you think voting has no effect on your life... then carry on. However, I think now more than ever, voting should be at the top of

your “to do” list. Why? Abortion is at the top of their list. If this law (Roe vs Wade) is overturned, men will be even more responsible for their actions or should we say lack of actions. You think you got baby mama drama now, just let this law be overturned and you will see what’s ahead for you and your sons. There are parents paying child support to keep their sons out of jail today!. Abortion has been focused on women, but the ramification it will have on men in today’s society can be financially detrimental. Gone are the days of making a baby and walking away as so many men did in the 70’s and 80’s. In this computerized society everything is based on your social security number. As men, we may not know what abortion means for a woman, but we do know what it mean as a man. Here is a male perspective. It could mean child support for 18 to 21 years for an evening of drunken passion. We all were told to wear a condom and told our sons to do

the same, but think back over your life at the times you didn’t. Some of you never looked back only to be summoned years later for a DNA test and back child support. Those of you without sin cast the first stone. Why abortions? Rape and incest are at the top of the list. However, if you don’t want any children at this point in your life or to have a child with a particular person, you will be stuck with them and their family for the rest of your life anyway. Maybe you have too many children and just don’t want or can’t afford any more. All you young bucks and old sugar daddies had better get prepared to do what you should have been doing in the first place, marrying these women. If you are not ready to be married then don’t lay with someone you don’t want. Pay now or pay later. An overturned law could mean we may have men being forced into marriage. While I am an advocate of marriage and family, I am not an advocate of forced marriages. Abortion has been a right in this country for almost 50 years and to do

away with it now will shrink the ability of women to excel and young men to not be caught up in the justice system. We teach and preach that abstinence, contraception and other social norms are part of family planning, yet a great majority of us have failed to follow through in the heat of passion. When I see these young men now making fatherless families, it breaks my heart. How an individual feels about a person’s right to abort or not to abort is personal but a child brought into this world and not wanted by the mother nor the father, affects our society. Imagine a world of unwanted, unsupervised children and unloved teens. Oh, not the world we are living in today, I mean the world where you have no choice, a world where the decision is made for you. Right now it’s still your choice, but. If you think your vote doesn’t count, then think again.

CDC Uptown Jazz Fest

Thanks Jaree Ervin & CDC Staff for an Evening of Jazz & Class Congratulations Jarere Ervin, Chief Development Officer for the University Area CDC, for pulling off an evening with class, style and talent personified! A sassy new morning show anchor from Channel 8, Deanne King was the hostess for the evening. Her energy and personality ensured there was no down time between sets as a good emcee does. We were all impressed with the turn out and how the vendors were strategically set up to allow us to browse as we strolled to our seats. The art displays and artists were invitingly positioned to the side under a tent as we maneuvered ourselves up front to VIP, where there was food catered by Livio’s with a well stocked open bar. The Show started at 4:00 and we arrived about 5:30. Our table consisted of Power couples: TJ & Kerrick Williams Photography. Michael & Iris Tax & Financial Services, and visiting diplomats from the Middle East, Cynthia and Ivan Monagan, who are looking to relocate in Tampa Bay after retirement. The evening with its ambiance confirmed that they had chosen the right city. Latin Jazz musician Jose Valentino was on stage when we arrived and he was jamming! He entertained us with his international flavor and introduced us to a “Genie From The Bottle”, a tall good looking young Latino that infused a mixture of jazz and hip hop into his set. Two ladies, Jazmin Ghent on saxophone from Lakeland and Althea Rene a seasoned sister on the flute from Detroit, mesmerized us. To close out the evening, the headliner Jazz artist and saxophonist Kim Waters winded us down with his sultry fine self! So fine that I overheard a sister say “ummhmm someone should throw their panties on stage.” We giggled like young teens and the other lady said “make sure their pink” All I could think was, “he does not want these big spanx.” The lovely Deiah Reily from ABC Action News was spotted with her family enjoying the evening. Shout out to Marva Hair and our loyal Fresh Friday ladies. It was a wonderful evening with wonderful people. Let’s keep living our best lives!

Marvin Knight Retires From TECO Marvin Knight has worn several hats in the Tampa Bay Area. The Most Eligible Bachelor is still one! However, after more than 36 years with Tampa Electric Company, Marvin has retired! Well known for his civic activism as well as his business acumen, Marvin is friends with everyone from the Mayor of the city of Tampa to the guy riding the back of the garbage truck. Born and raised in Tampa, the local politicians know him as a man with his hands on the pulse of the community, so when he calls, they answer. Quiet, humble, hard working, yet serious, and helpful were just a few words used to describe him. So many dignitaries were there to either present a proclamation or just a few good words

to send Marvin off in grand style. Marvin is also the owner of the Oriental Fish Market and several properties throughout inner city Tampa. Well done good & faithful servant!

Saint Anthony’s Triathalon Age is just a number and Sonya Gilkey proved it when she came to Tampa Bay and showed out. After a month of preparation Sonya, wife of former USF professor Glenn Gilkey arrived in Tampa Bay ready to compete in the 39th Annual St. Anthony’s Triathlon. This race is the first major race that kicks off the Triathlon Season in North America so it’s a pretty big deal. A Triathlon consist of biking swimming and running For the St. Anthony’s, you swim in the cool brisk waters of Tampa Bay, then bicycle along the waterways and byways and lastly, run through culturally enriched neighborhoods past cheering spectators. Racers from all over the world come to St. Petersburg Fl. annually to compete in this inspiring turn of events

for a prize purse. Only 4,000 runners can participate along with 150 relay teams. Sonya’s preparation was long and arduous. Everyday she challenged herself to be faster, stronger and more focused. To participate and finish all that at the tender age of 63 to me is heroic. Sonya came in 2nd place in the Meek and Mighty Category with women 60 to 64 years of age. The Gilkey’s live in the Atlanta suburbs but come to Tampa Bay often to visit old colleagues and their son who now is employed by USF too..

Miller Named 2022 Gonzmart Family Tourism Ambassador of the Year When Lesley ‘Les’ Miller, Jr. talks about community service, it isn’t just lip service. It is more than a calling. Miller believes that serving is the right thing and the best way he can help bring unity into the community. Miller was named 2022 Gonzmart Family Tourism Ambassador of the Year on Thursday by Visit Tampa Bay. “There are no better examples of an ambassador for our industry than Les Miller and we are delighted to honor him as Visit Tampa Bay’s Gonzmart Family Tourism Ambassador of the Year,” said President and CEO of Visit Tampa Bay, Santiago C. Corrada, in a release. “Working with our sales team, Les has personally helped bring multiple citywide meetings to Tampa, including Kappa Alpha Psi

Fraternity, Inc., United Bikerz Jamboree, and the Ancient Egyptian Arabic Order Nobles of the Mystic Shrine, which resulted in tens of thousands of hotel room nights and millions of dollars of economic impact to the community.

I couldn’t do it by being rich so this is my way of getting it done.” Whether serving on numerous boards or acting as Principal for Shumaker Advisors, the 71-year-old Tampa native continues to work with and for the public. Congratulations Les Miller!

N-Touch News: Keeping Small Businesses in Business


Jokes Go Ahead And Get your Laugh On! Infrequently

An elderly couple who are both widowed have been courting for a long time. They decide it’s finally time to get married. Before the wedding, they go out to dinner and talk about how their marriage might work. They discuss finances, living arrangements and so on. Finally, the man broaches the subject of their physical relationship. “How do you feel about sex?” he asks, rather tentatively. “I would like it infrequently,” replies the old lady. The old gentleman sits quietly for a moment, adjusts his glasses, leans over towards her and whispers: “Is that one word or two?”

Pregnant on the Bus

A lady about 8 months pregnant got on a bus. She noticed the young man opposite her was smiling at her. She immediately moved to another seat. This time the smile turned into a grin, so she moved again. The man seemed more amused. When on the fourth move, the man burst out laughing, she complained to the driver and he had the man arrested. When the case came up in court, the judge asked the young man (about 20 years old) what he had to say for himself. The young man replied, Well your Honor, it was like this: When the lady got on the bus, I couldn’t help but notice her condition. She sat down under a sign that said, “The Double Mint Twins are coming” and I smiled thinking those are probably twins because she was sooo big. Then she moved and sat under a sign that said, “Logan’s Liniment will reduce the swelling.” and I had to grinned thinkng I dont’ think so!. Then she placed herself under a deodorant sign that said, “William’s Big Stick Did the Trick.” and I could hardly contain myself. BUT, Your Honor, when she moved the fourth time and sat under a sign that said, “Goodyear Rubber could have prevented this Accident”, I just lost it. “CASE DISMISSED!”

The Blind Cowboy

An old blind cowboy wanders into an all-girl biker bar by mistake... He finds his way to a barstool and orders a shot of Jack Daniels. After sitting there for a while, he yells to the bartender, “Hey, you wanna hear a blonde joke?” The bar immediately falls absolutely silent. In a very deep, husky voice, the woman next to him says, “Before you tell that joke, Cowboy, I think it is only fair, given that you are blind, that you should know five things: The bartender is a blonde girl with a baseball bat. The bouncer is a blonde girl with a ‘BillyClub’. I’m a 6-foot-tall, 175-pound blonde woman with a black belt in karate. The woman sitting next to me is blonde and a professional weight lifter. The lady to your right is blonde and a professional wrestler. Now, think about it seriously, Cowboy... Do you still wanna tell that blonde joke?” The blind cowboy thinks for a second, shakes his head, and mutters, “No... not if I’m gonna have to explain it five times...”

The Pickle Factory

A man comes home from working at a pickle factory and he seems troubled. His wife asks him what’s wrong and the man says, “Oh, nothing. I just... well... recently I’ve had an uncontrollable urge to put my penis in the pickle slicer.” His wife nearly faints, then she blurts out: “Why? You need to go see someone. I’m going to make an appointment with a therapist or someone tomorrow.” The man protests, “No, no. It’s fine. Really. I’m not going to do it.” Everything is fine for a few weeks, but then the man comes home early from work and he’s pale as a ghost. His wife inquires, “What’s the matter? You look terrible!” The husband tells her, “Well, remember when I said I wanted to put my penis in the pickle slicer?” The wife gasps, “You did? What happened?” The man starts to cry. “I got fired!” “I don’t care about that! Are you okay? What happened with the pickle slicer?” The man sobs, “She got fired, too.”

The Rolls Royce

Caught Smoking Dope

Two young guys appear in court after being arrested for smoking dope. The judge says, “You seem like nice young men, and I’d like to give you a second chance instead of jail time. I want you to go out this weekend and try to convince others of the evils of drug use. I’ll see you back in court Monday.” On Monday, the judge asks the first guy, “How did you do over the weekend?” “Well, your honor, I persuaded 17 people to give up drugs forever.” “Seventeen people? That’s wonderful. How did you do it? “ “I used a diagram, your honor. I drew two circles like this: O o. Then I told them that the big circle is your brain before drugs and the small circle is your brain after drugs.” “That’s admirable,” says the judge. Then he turns to the second guy. “And how did you do?” “Well, your honor, I persuaded 156 people to give up drugs forever.” “Wow!” says the judge. “156 people! How did you manage to do that?” “Well, I used a similar diagram,” the guy says. Sixty is Worst Age “I drew two circles like this: o O. “Sixty is the worst age to be,” said the Then I pointed to the little circle and 60-year-old. said, ‘This is your asshole before “You always feel like you have to prison... pee.

You pee every morning at 6:00 and Laughing..... crap every morning at 6:30. Laughter Heals! So what’s so tough about being 80?” “I don’t wake up until 7:00!” Before going to Europe on business, a man drove his Rolls Royce to a downtown NY City bank and went in to ask for an immediate loan of $5,000. The loan officer was quite taken aback and requested collateral. “Well, then, here are the keys to my Rolls-Royce”, the man said. The loan officer promptly had the car driven into the bank’s underground parking for safekeeping and gave him $5,000. Two weeks later, the man walked through the bank’s doors and asked to settle up his loan and get his car back. The loan officer checked the records and told him, “That will be $5,000 in principal and $15.40 in interest.” The man wrote out a check, thanked the loan officer, and started to walk away. “Wait sir,” the loan officer said, “while you were gone, I found out you are a millionaire. Why in the world would you need to borrow?” The man smiled. “Where else could I securely park my Rolls-Royce in Manhattan for two weeks and pay only $15.40?”
