Assistant Pollee Chief Ends 26-Year Career With Retirement BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel Staff Writer On September 8, 1980, Gilbertina Harris, armed with a 4-year degree in Criminology from the University of South Florida and an idea that she could make a difference, walked into the Tampa Police Department. On March 30, 2007, a wiser Gilbertina Wright walked out realizing that she had created a legacy within the department. While many African American women have worked at and retired from the Tampa Police Department, Assistant Chief Wright became "the first" in many areas. A trailblazer, she became the first Black female to rise above the rank of Sergeant, continuing on to become the first Black Female Assistant Chief. But her rise to the top was not without its hills and valleys. Less than a year after the birth of her daughter, Latia, in 1986, Chief Wright was attacked by a pit bull. She was a corporal at the time and rumors circulated that she would be afraid to return to the streets. She wasn't. In 1997, she learned that she had breast cancer and bought property and didn't consult us about his plans as far as I know. I'm not against single-family homes on the property. rn attend the meeting and listen to what he has to say." The East Tampa Business and Civic Association will be sending out letters to everyone in the area to inform them about the meeting, including the residents who signed the petition. Reporler Leon B. Crews can be reached at (813) 248-0724, or e-rtUJiled at leon@flsentinel.com. ASSISTANT CHIEF GILBERTINA WRIGHT Retires after 26 t/2 Years once again the rumors began to circulate. She proved them wrong. When the cancer returned in 2000, the rumors once again reared their ugly heads. It was always her decision to stay or go. And her husband, retired Sergeant Bob Wright, supported her totally. She decided to stay the course. Chief Wright realized that she couldn't make a difference unless she was there. And she always hoped that what she endured would make it better for those who followed in her footsteps. Today, she can measure how department has grown. There are women and Blacks in places that would have been unheard of in 1980. And that is her legacy. Even her retirement opens the doors for others to move up the ladder through promotions. When asked how she feels about leaving something that has been a part of her life for more than 25 years, she said, I love what I'm doing but Lb.aive-_no regrets. I will miss ijle people l see everyday and those who I see on occasion, rilsee less often. Now, it is all.about family, ch.urch, (From The Heart) debriefing, and finding her next venture. It's been a long time since I've been able to just do nothing but concentrate on my home and family. I have no immediate plans. She eJ\joys cake decorating and may pursue that interest. Eventually, she will probably re-enter the workforce to satisfy her Social Security requirements. But for the time being, the idea of taking each day as it is appealing to her and her family.

FEATURES Citizens Give Views On The Next Four Years Candidates Comment On Runoff Election Now that the City of Tampa elections have concluded, citizens were asked what they would like to see happen in Tampa over the next four years. Mr. AI Davis: "We already have a comprehensive plan. We're looking at the transportation system, road condi tions, better housing, and how to deal with growth. Like Mayor Pam Iorio said, we're looking at Tampa 4 or 5 years from now and what it will need. "Quality of iife items lead the list. I'm excited about the future and. I can't wait to see what Tampa will look like 4 years from now. I want to see the quality of life in Black communities improve, especially when it comes to our children. I'm also looking forward to what the East Tampa Revitalization Partnership will accomplish over the next 4 years." JAMES RANSOM James Ransom: "Considering the City of Tampa as far as what it can do for Blacks, the key interests don't change, 'and that's economic prosperity. That has a major impact on how you can influence your own destiny. That also comes through affluence." Rans.om said the list of Blacks that can provide goods or services hasn't changed, and the f ac t they continue to struggle needs to be addressed. QUEEN MILLER Ms. Queen Miller: "I see the next 4 years through crucial points. First, we need to have every church visit City Council every year. Second, we need Council representatives to attend town hall meetings. Third, we need to mail out surveys to crime watch coordinators to coordinate their needs with those of the city. "Fourth, our elected officials and citizens need to attend crime watch meetings. We also need to encourage citizens to attend City Council meetings to express their needs, especially the clergy. They are supposed to be the leaders." Ms. Miller said we need to attend East Tampa Revitalization meetings, speak out on issues that affect Black people and not avoid the issues, have a citizens council meeting that will include youth that meet in WARREN DAWSON CRIMINAL LAW".<. 221 1467 Tampa Park Plaza @ Nebraska Ave. & Scott St. 1111 Mlrtnu OIAlaW'jerls an lmpormn!Oetlslon That Not Ba Baied Selelw Ullin Dllllerdsamenls.

GUSSIE LIVINGSTON G ussie Livingston : "I would like to see African Americans come together on a common ground. We have no unity. Over the next 4 years, we need to do some real maintenance in our communities. People have died to give us a right to vote, and we won't use it. As far as the leadership is concerned, those with the loudest voices mttst be heard and never silenced. We've got to become more involved over the next 4 years." Reporter Leon B.

Challenger On Tuesday, voters in the City of Tampa decided that incumbent Gwen Miller would represent them in District 1 in the runoff election. She defeated businessman Joe Redner. Councilwoman Gwen M iller, who won the race with 56% of the vote said, "I think it was a great win. The voters chose the person wno had the experience, the knowledge, and the capability to serve on the. Council for the next 4 years. "They knew this was a very important election and that's why so many people returned to the polls to cast their votes again." When contacted by the Sentinel, Joe Redner said of his loss, "I had the people with their attention on the issues. But I made the mistake of taking the attention off of the issues with the free admittance to the clubs and GWEN MILLER ... Incumbent their attention never got back on the issues. I did exactly what I shouldn't have done. "But I did get the people out to vote. However, it made it better for my opponent. It was the best thing for her." Redner, who has sought office seven times in the past, said he is not to be counted out. "I'm sure I will run again," he said. As a result of the controver sy surrounding the election, a spokesperson for the Hillsborough County Supervisor of Elections Office said nearly as many voters turned out for the runoff election as did for the regular election. h During the Man:h st election 16% of those registered voted. The runoff election drew 15.23% of the registered voters to the polls. Reporter Iris B. Holton can be contacted at (813) 248-1921 or by e-mail at iris@flsentinel.com. /Attorney Eric T.

After 5 p.m., today that person will transform into Gilbertina Wright, retired Assistant Chief, daughter, wife, and mother. She has earned a right to leave a stressful job behind and enjoy her family and her life. And the community is better for her years of service. I was unable to attend her retirement party. However, judging by the remarks post ed on LEOAFFAIRS.COM, more than a few feathers were ruffled. Some took exception at remarks about discrimination endured by Blacks on police departments 25 years ago. Well, there are three. things you can't hide: a baby, an elephant, and the truth. lie. I continually fail to understand why mankind believes that if something unpleasant isn't talked about, it becomes less real. Remaining mum about a situation doesn't make it better, it allows it to fester and spread. Some of those posting com ments said the comments by former St. Petersburg Chief Golaith Davis and Chief Wright were "inappropriate." Since when does the truth become "inappropriate?" I'm sure many of the com; ments were posted by less tenured officers and if that is the case, then they may not have experienced what others have. But that doesn't make it any less true. Regardless of what some choose to believe, people such as Golaith Davis, Curtis Lane, the late Romeo Cole, B. J. Curry, Rufus Lewis, and many others too numerous to name were the African American pioneers in law enforcement in this area. They blazed the trail for others to follow And they have earned their right ful places in history. Many of them were the "first" to serve in the capacity there were placed in. And they were met with resistance. Change or something new has an ability to "rock the boat" and most people don't openly emb-race it They fear the unknown. They fear anything that affects their comfort zone. As a direct result of the sacrifices she made, other women can walk through those gates at the Tampa Police Department freely because she has already paid the toll. I wish her well. Indeed, we see no reason why workers need to take guns to work with them. Given the growing incidence of road rage, workplace violence and poor anger management skills of many Americans, we believe easy access to weapons will only intensify incidents of violence in Florida workplaces. What's more, the prospect of having thousands, maybe even millions of Florida citizens riding around with firearms in their cars sends chills up our spines, and should alarm you, too. Therefore, we vehemently oppose passage of SB2356 and HB 1417. -We encourage you to call members of your legislative delegation to request that they oppose passage of these bills. If just one life is saved by keeping guns off workplace premises, then the fight .against these two bills will not have been in vain. Make the calls and pass it on!

Passes Third Bill To: Expand Health Care For Area Veterans Washington, D.C.-In a rare move for a fresh man, U.S. Rep. Kathy Castor passed the rule for the Wounded Warrior Assistance Act of 2007, a bill she amended last week to improve the health care for Tampa Bay area veterans. The bill is consistent with Castor's fight for more and greater access to health care for the underserved and veterans in the Tampa Bay area. Castor's amendment, which she pushed through the House Armed Services Committee meeting last week, increase the number of resident physicians at veteran's hospitals to eire for wounded service men and women. Castor has visited with wounded soldiers and caregivers at area hospitals on several occa-... sions, including the VA hospitals, .James A. Haley VA Medical Center in Tampa, and Bay Pines VA lfealthcare System in St. Petersburg. Both hospitals are in Castor's Congressional District and they are the busiest VA hospitals in the country. Castor's VA proposal complements her first bill introduced, H.R. 1093, the Resident Physician Shortage Reduction Act of 2007, which would increase th. e number o'f re_sident physician training positions for area hospitals, and help to expand care especially for under. served populations in Tampa Bay area hospitals like St. Joseph's Hospital and Tampa General Hospital. ere You Hurt An N .eed A Doctor?

CREWS Sentinel StaffWriter Lloyd Sealey started experimenting with drugs while in his 20s. "Looking back, I remember being in California in 1979 when Richard Pryor had his bad experience. All that did is attract me more into using cocaine." Sealey said he didn't like crack at first, but when he came to Florida, he got inore. involved, first as a dealer then later as a user. "The addiction cost me everything, including a dog I gave to a dealer to cover my expenses. It also cost me a few stints in prison and several trips to rehabilitation centers." Sealey said no matter how many times he went into rehabilitation, he always relapsed. "The last time I went to prison, I was working on a road crew along the interstate. I remember .it being very hot, and it was at that time I asked God to help me. In 1996, I maae a VOW to leave crack cocaine alone and I did." :::...v.y.... LLOYD SEALEY Sealey, who was released from prison in 2000, said he first stopped smoking cigarettes because he felt cigarettes and crack cocaine were "two evils working against each other. "I've been tempted to smoke cigarettes since then, but I always stop myself. Now, I'm confident I can leave it all alone." Sealey said he preaches to those who want to hear, if they want to stop the addic tion, they have to be ready to fight. "I know it's easier not to fight, because I've been there. So, if you don't want to fight the addiction, you'll never stop using drugs, no matter how many rehab centers you check into or coun selors you sit and talk to.

Sealey is a member of First Baptist Church of West Tampa, and is a musician. Sealey, who will be 63 in May, is now an independent truck driver and tries to help others overcome their addictions, no matter what they are. "I just tell them of my experience, and tell them what they need to do. I understand some will fight, and others will think they don't have the strength to fight. You'd be surprised at how strong you really are. Just allow your inner strength prevail, and stop He has one brother still living, and two children he's very proud of. "I've made a CD and DVD, free of charge, I hope can inspire others to quit. Anyone who is tired of what they're going through and don't like themselv.es anymore know it's time to stop.

LOCAL Bus Accident Sends 7 To Area Hospitals On Wednesday at 1:14 p.m., an accident involving a HARTline bus sent 7 people to area hospitals, and the driver of a vehicle charged. The Hillsborough County Sheriffs Office reports they were called to a traffic crash at 56th Street and Hillsborough Avenue. They determined a HARTline bus was stopped and picking up p!J.ssengers when a vehicle tried to pass it. For unknown reasons, the vehicle turned and struck the left side of the bus, spun clockwise and struck a second vehicle. After striking the second vehicle, the first vehicle tried to avoid the collision and came to rest across the roadway.

Question: If baptism is essential to salvation, what" about the thief on the cross who received no baptism yet was promised by Christ that he would be saved? Yes the Lord did say to the thief; "this day shalt thou be with me in paradise" (Luke 23:43). However, we are talking about a man (the thief) who lived and died under the Law of Moses, while Christ was still living. While Christ yet lived upon this earth, He could say "thy sins be forgiven thee." He had the power to forgive sins. But this was before Christ commanded His baptism. His instructions to His apostles to tell people to be baptized to be saved came death, burial and resurrection. Christ's Law or Testament came into force died. "For where a testament is, there must also of necessity be the death of the testator. For a testament is of force after men are dead: otherwise it is of no strength at all while the testator liveth" (Hebrews 9:16-17). God's Word clearly teaches; "he that. believeth baptized shall be saved" (Mark 16:16); "repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins" (Acts 2:38); and "baptism doth also now save us" (I Peter 3:21). Yet in view of these and many other p assages that clearly show baptism precedes salvation, people try to get around doing what God says. Why will people not just s u bmit to the instructions of Christ and the apostles to the salvation of their souls? There is not a single case of conversion after the resurrection of Christ where people were told they had remission of sins; were saved; or where they rejoiced until after they had heard the Word, believed the Word, repented of their sins, and were baptized.

"I'm glad the Guinness World Records folks acknowledged me and my Crunk Ain't Dead piece," Lil Jon lyrics: "What, you want to dance? No, it's not worth it. Me, I'll stay on the sofa enjoying the vibe by raising my arms." As if to ensure that Longoria, whom he is due to marry this summer in France, does not get jealous, it also features the line: "I've already got my woman for life." LILJON said. "I grew up on reading and hearing about p eople and celebrities who break . records in the Guinness World Records book and it always fascinated me. Now that I'm on the list, it feels great. Let's j:ust see how many rappers try to qutdo my pendant and break my record. They don't call me the King of Crunk for nothing!" The album; due sometime in the fall, features guest collaborations from Good Charlotte, Ciara, Lil Wayne, R.Kelly, Three 6 Malia, Rick Rubin, Green Day, and Korn's Jonathan Davis.
