(Photograph by Jerry Brunson). BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel Staff Writer On Thursday morning during the regular Community Redevelopment Agency ing, members of Tampa City Council passed without discussion, Item No. 4 on their agenda. Item No. 4 was the property acquisition for the structqre at 2932 N. 22nd Street, known as Gene's Bar. The establishment was purchased for $200,000. On Thursday afternoon, Mayor Pam Iorio held a press conference in front of the infamous bar and signed the .agreement, removing the troublesome spot from the East Tampa community for. ever. "This is a great day. By working with the community, we can find a new use for this building. It is across the street from a business that has been in existence since 1945 and it should be part of a thriving community. "This area deserves better. Redevelopment takes place one block at a time to make a better community," Mayor Iorio said as she prepared to sign the documentation to complete the deal. C. Blythe Andrews, Jr., Chairman of the Board _of the Florida Sentinel Bulletin newspaper, and Sam Kinsey, Chairman of the East Tampa Community Revitalization Partnership witnessed the signing of the document. Prior to the signing, several individuals who had been instrumental in the fight against the bar throughout the years addressed the ence. Interim City Councilman Frank Reddick said, "This is a happy day for East Tampa. It was a public nuisance and thankfully, the opportunity came to close it and there will never be a bar on this corner again." :c -< ... City Council Chairwoman Gwendolyn Miller said, "I've been fighting to N close this bar since I was o elected to office in 1995. It was part of my job to work with the community to get to this point. It wasn't hard, it just took so many years to make it happen." "I've heard about this bar and it has been a problem for a number of years. Now we finally had a chance to do something about it. It's a reality and one more crowning glory for the mayor. We can go forward, clean it up and make it good for everybody," City Councilwoman Mary Alvarez said. County Commissioner Kevin White said; "This has been an ongoing problem for 0 .this community. Now, :C through a partnership the day C has come to fruition for -this to )> happen." m Sam Kinsey, Chairman of Z the East Tampa Community Revitalization Partnership m said, "It's a great day for East r;Tampa.

Councilman Reddick said there has been no discussion about the property that houses Caldonia's Bar-B-Q, the cleaners that sits on the corner of N. 21st Street and E.

A community meeting to discuss future use.. of the building will take place on Tuesday, March 13th, at 6:30 p.m. The meeting will be held at St. Matthews M. B. Church, 3708 E.

We also have heard reports of :; youths and entire families. cutting long lines of peopie, instead of.waiting their turns to get on amuse-C ment rides. . ff Manners do not end with "please" and "thank you." c There are basic rules of courtesy that all children should be taught, and that adults should practice. A family of four attempting to cut one of the lines at the C Fair was rebuffed by another family who had been en waiting patiently in line. Luckily, no confrontation w :: occurred. But the question was raised, "How can pa-t-rents teach their children good manners when the pa> a: ,rents themselves don't practice what they preach?" We have written several editorials about the growW ing lack of respect shown in our society. Basic rules of courtesy, and respect must be a part of ev:ery J: child's home-training.

I Attorney Smith also recommended that such a ban be thrown out of the window. Let's Talk Politics l . eadline for 'registering to vote for the pri i maries was Monday, February 5th! We should've reminded you! But for those of you who still haven't registered to vote, you may still have time to register to cast your vote for possible run-offs if it matters to you. And believe us, it SHOULD. matter to us all! So, with the time we have left before the March 6th Primary voting date, there's something we need to bring to your attention. Yes, you should vote on issues rather than individuals. However, some individuals take it upon themselves, either publicly or privately, to represent political organizations whose stance on certain issues have been problematic. You'd do very well to look at the total candidate -politically as well as personally -before you cast your Primary vote. For instance, do you know the political make-up of your current City Council? Even though council seats are politically nondenominational, rumor has it Democrats currently hold the majority on City Council. Rumor also has it that local Repubiicans have set their sights on Council membership, and : have privately agreed to mount an all-out political (.!) war against what they perceive to be a Democratic if controlled Council. Hopefully, Council members will heed his advice. Such an ordinance or ban is just a lawsuit waiting to happen. Attorney Smith also sug gested that the Council mem bers take notice of a state bill proposed that would provide exclusionary zones. Such zones would outline places that would be off-limits to convicted sex offenders. Rep.

During court-ordere.d school desegre gation, very little of anYthing addressing the quality of education as it impacted the teaching of Black History was brought before the sitting federal judge. The NAACP Legal Defense Fund took very little, or no action at all in this area of providing a quality educa tion for Black children. Check the school board records during years of court-ordered desegregation, and the docket shows nothing at all. Other than issues deal ing with the suspension and expulsion of Black children, and the formation of majoritypopulated Black schools, the Black community moved slowly where the teaching of Black History is concerned .. While some of us did push tion with the Department of Corr'ections, Hillsborough County Sheriffs Office, and the Hillsborough County State Attorney's Office, this bill would make it a firstdegree misdemeanor for some people convicted of sex offenses to be within 300 feet of places where children meet. Such areas would include schools, parks, playgrounds, and day care centers. Rep. Glorioso is intended for those offenders who are homeless who don't check in with their local Sheriff. But even this bill could be brought into question unless it is fine tuned and specific. Currently, there is a law that addresses where people convicted of sex crimes on children younger than 16 can live. The law took effect in October 2004, is not retroactive and does not cover crimes that took place before But for us who only too well how devastating a change from one party to another party might be for non-conservatives, minorities and women, a political change in City Council could be a the issue during the school board tenure of the late Rev. Leon Lowry, was apparently taken seriously. Workshops dealing _with the teacher-training aspects of Black History were Former school offic ial Dr. Sa111 j, Hot1;on did a number of Black History workshops for the training of teachers. However, they were few. A number of us did approach the school board during the height of school desegregation concerning the subject, but made very little head way. Unfortuqately, NAACP Education c'ommittees have never been effective in impacting the school board where teaching of Black History is concerned. (To be continued.) the law went into effect. This law forbids those con victed of such crimes from living within 1,000 feet of any school, day care center, park, or playground. The fact of the matter is no one with children or empathy for children would .welcome a convicted pedophile into their neighborhoods. However, once it is known that a sex offender lives in a neighborhood, parents, guardians, and other adults must exercise more caution with their children. It is a sad state. of affairs but We must Watch them like a hawk. Whenihey go outside to play, an adult should be out there "":ith theitrat all times. Although the concern is clearly to protect the children, Council members would do well to tread lightly on instituting universal bans. Such bans could create monsters that no one wants to fight. catastrophe! Therefore, we advise to all our readers and concerned voters, SHARPEN YOUR EYES and cast your votes wisely! Don't let smiling faces bamboozle us out of City Hall!

The candidates were asked prepared questions appropriate for the office they are seeking. Whether you agree with us or not, we encourage our readers to VOTE on March 6th.

Lewis, a former captain with Tampa Police Department and native Tampan, however is by far one of the most impressive newcomers to the political scene, and we hope to see him again. \. Dist. 1 Gwen Miller Gwen Miller is a quiet force to be reckoned with. Like David, she knows when and where to strike to get the job done. We feel she has paid her dues to this community in many ways, and has helped City Council become a better body as their chairman the past three years. Our community made history when .we elected 2 African Americans to the City Council. However, we feel that some of Ms. Miller's opponents are banking on the Bhicl< community not voting.

We felt Ms. Mulhern had good ideas about moving the city forward, but did not familiarize herself with specific issues that con cerned our community. However her opponent, seasoned councilman Shavm Harrison was \'Cry impressive, too, during his intervie\',. The deciding factor, however, is that Mr. Harrison has been a City Councilman for a while, but has ne\'cr shown a lot of concern with issues that continue to plague our neighborhoods. City Council Dist. 4 Julie Brown Jtilie Brown was very knowledgeable aboat the issues and impressive during her inteniew.

Thomas Scott. The Board feels that Rev. Scott's experience in politics and relationship with the County Commission are his biggest assets in this race. We know that he works hard for his community and gets the job done. His opponents, Frank Reddick and Lynette Judge were both very impressive during their interviews. The Board feels Mr. Reddick, who is serving as the interim councilman, has gotten things done in a very short time, and deserved some positive ink. We feel he was knowledgeable about the issues and has done a good job as interim councilman.

chUrch School Where Are You Going? How Are You Going To Get There? Today's lesson speaks to the heart of what many churchgoers are going through. John records the interactions and conversations between Jesus and His disciples in 14 verses 1 through 14. These verses demonstrate how the disciples and many people today miss the message and meaning of Christ. Jesus knew and understood His mission and purpose for coming into"the world. He knew that the world was not His destination and His stay 'was on.ly temporary. He spoke to His disciples in chapter 13 and told. them that He was going away and He would be with them a little while longer (13:33). In chapter 14 He brings a level of comfort to them. He encourages them to not let what He says and what is. going to happen Him, trouble them. They must try not to let the actions that will occur trouble them. Too often people allow themselves to be troubled by the actions and activities oflife. He immediately moves to what I consider to be the solution for not being. troubled. He did not just tell them what not to do without giving them some solution. The solution to not being troubled is to believe (vs. 1). He says to them, you believe in God. They had a solid belief in the presence. and existence.of God. He encouraged them to take it to another level; believe also in me. Believing in the word and power of God will alleviate a troubled heart. When you consider the things that trou ble you, the trouble is unnecessary when there is solid faith and belief in the power of God and Redeeming power of Jesus. Jesus speaks further to them to them know where He was going and why He was leaving. He informed them that He was going to prepare a place for them in His Father's house (vs. 3). Yet they still did not understand. in turn say to Jesus, "we don't know where you are going or how to get there" (lis. 5). Throughout their time together Jesus tried to get them to see beyond this world .. Jesus was not interested in setting up a kingdom on earth. It is believed NE W MILLENNIUM CHURCH 905 East Skagway (One Block South Of Busch l3Ivd.) 9:30 10:15 A.M.* Bible Classes For All Ages 10: IS 11 A.M.

Believing that He has gone When we hear of the things of Christ, we must not limit them to the earthly world in which we live. The disciples were so limited to the things of the world that they missed the heavenly message and invitation. In chapter 13, verse 36, He told them that they could not follow Him now, but later they would. In order to get to the place of the Father, death must take place. In order for Jesus to get back to the Father, He had to die. The way for us to get back to the Father is to die. to prepare a place will help us as we make this journey through life. The spiritual destination that God has assigned to your life can be reached by following the way of Jesus. When Jesus invites you to a heavenly destination, He will also provide the directions on how to get there. Many people hear of spiritual blessings, but they do not know how to get them. God will not give a vision and not make the provision. If God tells you to go somewhere, He will also tell you how to do so. In this instance, Jesus brings more comfort and Even in considering the thought of death there is comfort. The comfort is, knowing that Jesus is life. If you loose your life for Jesus, you will gain it. As He previ ously said, "He is the resurrection" (John 11:25) .

Talented Blind Musician .. COmes Back To His ROots During the Chfistmas holidays, 14-year-old Jamie Thomas a surprise guest performer at the Christmas program at Caminiti Exceptional Child Center. On. Monday, he will return to the Center to participate in the school's Black History Program. -In addition to being a blind, talented per-. former, Jamie attended the school for a year . However, unlike during the holidays, once Jamie completes his performance, he will be returning to his own school, the Florida School for the Deaf and Blind, in St. Augustine. The young man shares many similarities with the late Ray Charles. At the tender age of three, Jamie, who was born prematurely and blind, taught himself how to play the piano. He is often compared to Ray Charles because of ._that shared musical background and blindness. Through the years, the teenager has established himself as a talented musician and singer worthy of praise in the music industry. Jamie attended Caminiti whE!n he was 3years-old. Then, his family to Atlanta. Jamie Thomas to perform during Black History Program at Caminiti Exceptional Child Center. (Photo by Jerry Brunson). For the next 6 years, Jamie attended Coralwood Education Center.

But he also performs at events such as family reunions, churches, graduations, funerals, school programs, and other communi ty-oriented events. He is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Jimmy Thomas, and brother to Ms. Erica Brown and Jasma Thomas. Mrs. Thomas, who works at the school as a Teacher's Aide, was delighted that her son had the opportunity to participate in the Christmas program and be invited back. for the Black History Program. Jamie made a special trip home for both performances. Reporter Iris B. Holton can be contacted at (813) 248-1921 or by e-mail at iris@flsentinel.com.

The day was filled with smiles and laughter from children who were entertained by the numerous activities provided at the event. There were jumbo slides, bouncing castles, hul a-h oop contests, kiddie bowling, face painting, arts and crafts and so much more. The adults were definitely not forgotten because they benefited from the many vendors that were on hand such: Adore It Accessories by Trish Stephens, L&J Fashions by Janet Clark, D'Alexi Urban Kids by Brenda Siplin, Personal Trainer -Stephanie Sykes, Keller Williams Properties and Real Estate Appraiser by Regina Brown, P.A., Sure Faith Fashions by Thelma Shuman, Dasia Tresures by April Doss/Betsy Brown, and Travel Agent -Ivy Box.

"We were in the hotel enjoying ourselves the day before the game, and I met Mrs. McCaskey, the owner of the Bears. She greeted Mr. Keys and remembered him during his playing days. He introduced me to her and told her he wasn't able to get me tickets for the game." Saffold said Mrs. McCaskey told him she'd see what she could do about that. "On Sunday morning while I was at the chapel with some of the Bear players, Mr. Keys approached LaBrawn Saffold and Chicago Bear head coach Lovie Smith.

"I met them because I was lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time. "We had great seats at the game with a great view, and I thought Prince was great at halftime." After the game, Keys and Saffold went to celebrate with the Indianapolis Colts. "We drove to their hotel in Ft. Lauderdale and were at their Super Bowl victory party. Later, Coach Dungy walked in, I called him, and he remembered me from a trip we were on together with Derrick Brooks to Africa. "He shook my hand, and that was a great moment. I shook hands with a man who had just made history." Saffold said as the Vince Lombardi Trophy was being passed around, to grab it for a qbl&t photo shot.

L .OCAL Woman PilOt Wants To Start Flight. Training School When it comes to African American pilots, Jacquelyne Beiro reflects on the Tuskegee Airmen,. Be.ssie Coleman, Willa Brown, Janet Harmon Bragg, Theresa Claiborne, and Joan Higginbotham ., She also is aware of the fact that there were hundreds of Black male and female pilots after World War II, but only one was sue. cessful in landing a job with a commercial airline. "Today, 1-1/2% of all the pilots flying are Black, 14 of them women, and 6% white females. "Eight years ago, I was the only Black woman pilot in this area. Today, I'm still the only one. 'I've in Tampa for 15 years,_and I haven't seen 1 person take advantage ofthis opportunity." Ms. Beiro wasn't always a pilot. She. ran several businesses and was quite sue-. cessful. However, a relative got her interested in flying, and in 1987, she completed her first solo flight. "When it comes to careers, becoming a pilot is something. children aren't exposed to in the school system. I want to change that." Ms. Beiro has been given an opportunity with the Hillsborough County School :System to produce a publication for Black History about Black pioneer aviators and modern-day astronauts that will instill confidence by learning about the past. "I hope thousands of students will be influenced to become pilots." Ms. Beiro said !!he's spoken to Tuskegee Airmen and others about increasing the number of Black female pilots. "When I talk to parents l;lbout introducing their children to aviation, their first JACQUELYNE BEIRO reaction is Black peopie don't fly. I think this is an excellent career for Black women that's not being promoted." Ms. Beiro has a commercial license and an instructor's license, and wants to open a flight training school REPOS, WE DON'T CARE! FORECLOSURE, WE DON'T CARE! HOSPITAL BILLS, WE DON'T CARE!

"I flew for WRA Airlines based in Raleigh, North Carolina, owned by Warren Wheeler.1t is the first Black owned and operated airline in the -world. Wheeler is responsible for a lot of Black pilots flying today. He was Piedmont's first Black pilot, hired at the age of 19 He's retired and now runs a Caribbean charter service." Ms. Beiro said the door of opportunity has to stay open so young African Americans can see this as a career. Reporter B.

There are few legitimate Tampa compan i es that can honor such offers. Rehabbers Superstore is the real deal. Before you lose any value in your home ask the investor to provide the following: 1) References: Ask to talk with people who have recently sold them their home. 2) Proof of Funds: Ask them to prove they have the cash to close quickly. Many investors use a "Quick Cash -Fast Closing" tactic to get you to sign on the line then they run around town trying to find someone to buy their contract. 3) Occupational License: Are they legitimate? Ask for a copy of their occupational license. At the Rehabber's Superstore we have the cash to buy, and we can close all deals in 3 days. More importantly, we can provide you with our credentials.
