HOLTON Sentinel Staff Writer Recently, Mrs. Clifford Bohler and her oldest son, George, attended a ceremo ny at the White House. The ceremony was to pay tribute to the Tuskegee Airmen. During the ceremony, President George W. Bush presented the Congressional Gold Medal to the original members of the Tuskegee Airmen. They were the first all-Black aviation unit in World War II. Mrs. Bohler. accepted the medal on behalf of her husband, Henry, who was unable to attend because of . health reasons. Mrs. Bohler said she received the invitation about a month before the ceremony. Bohler currently resides in a nursing home in Wesley Chapel. Mrs. Bohler said her husband of 59 years b _ecame early last year.

BY ANTI ONE DAVIS Sentinel Staff Writer Barack Obama will be making his first visit to Tampa on his quest to become the next president of the United States. The Illinois Senator will be in Tampa on. Sunday, Ap:dl 15th for two fundraising events. Sen. Obama, 45, will hold a meeting with a small group of big-dollar donors at the South Tainpa of Norm.a 'Jean Lyke's and Charlie Burr from noon to 1:30 p. m. He will then hold a public reception from 1: 30 to 3:30 p.m. at the Cuban Club, 2010 Republic De Cuba. in Ybor City. "We wanted to give every one in the Tampa Bay area SEN. BARACK OBAMA an opportunity to see Sen. Obama and offer their support to him," said Frank Sanchez, a member of Tampa Bay Friends of Obama Committee and Sen. Obama's local advisor. "I thinkpeople here have had an interest in him as a presidential candidate from afar off, but this will give people a chance to hear and see him up close. The more people see him and hear him, the more they support his campaign." Sen. Obama solidified his bid for the Democratic nomination last week, announcing he had raised $25 million for his campaign. Sen. Hillary Clinton, the assumed frontrunner for the Democratic presidential ticket, raised $26 million. Tickets for the event will range from $25 to $100 For more information, please call (813) 258-2224.

The trend began in the 60s -with the Tampa Urban League's U. S. funded Labor Education Advancement Program (LEAP). Black men (later to include women) were prepared for entry into the high wage labor union job in the construction trades. The League's most recent training was for computer word processors through the early 2000s. Central Park and Ybor City were the sites for the training, using both pubic and private funding. Our editorial board discussed the need for and of kinds. of training for young unem. ployed Black men in our community with newly-elected congressional representation Kathy Castor. Community-based training programs also place hundreds of workers into the job market a,nnually more quickly than school-based training programs. The League's training program offered entry hi the workforC!il after six to sixteen weeks of training, which normally would have taken up 18 months in a traditional classroom setting,and school schedule. Attacking poverty, crime, drugs and high school dropout rates in Black, Hispanic and poor neighborhoods require that fast-track and nontraditional approaches. be used to reach and teach young Black men and single' mothers. Therefore, we urge our state and congressional representatives to explore thefunding of neighborhood based training centers for fast-track training programs. They work and are sorely needed. Pass it on. Immigration And The Matter Of Colorl he recent return .of a boatload of Haitians to ,' '' :Haiti has once again raised the specter of in the United States' immigration policies. A local South Florida mayor pointed out the difference in the. way. Cuban and Haitian boat refugees are "treated. A report bythe National for. Immigration and Refuge Rights entitled, "From the Borderline to the Color-line; a report on anti-immigration racism in the United States," found "a disturbing pattern of racism against immigrants i s on the rise in the United States." Looking into areas such as work or housing, as well as recent incidents of hate and violence a survey found that _anti-immigrant racism places the lives and well-being of a growing number of immigrants in d .mger. The report also found that immigration in the United States faces growing discrimination ''because of the color of their skin, accent or national origin. Even more scary about .the report .is that p eople of color in the United States "who are perceived to like I Fundamentals -or Our American Democracy I (Series) e politics of this Democracy egin with govern mental structures on the local, state and national lev els. On the local levels we are introduced with the legislative powers and structures called City Council, County Commission, School Board and various components of judicial offices. Then, there are executive components defined in terms of City Manager and/or Mayor. There is also state government with its legislature, judicial and executive offices and components. It is safe to say that one does not comprehend 'or really understand his localized or state government if void of the aforementioned structures. In fact, it is the intent of this column to actually con-seems that more and ore celebrities have an incurable disease. It's called speaking what you think without taking the consequences into consideration The latest to fa ll victim of this incurable disease _is radio host Don Imus. Last Wednesday, he made the tragic error of referring to the Rutgers University women's basketball team as "nappy-l:iead e d hos" on his nationally syndicated radio show. Of course eight members of the team are Black women. Imus, who is the host of "lmus In The Morning," broadcasted the comments the day after Rutgers lost the f'J"CAA wom en's champi onship game the day before. During the show, he com mented, "That's some rough girls from Rutgers. Man, they got tattoos .... He was talking to duct these writing sessions until it is felt that the mis sion has been accomplished. It really bothers me to think of the current war in Iraq. It's commissioned under the assumption of creatinga democratic government, and AfricanAmericans have lived here in this land for 450 years, and this nation has failed miser ably in democratizing its for_ mer slaves. It has failed to bring or make the system work for Black people collec tively. It is most important that we all, especially African Americans, view leadership and Black representation from the consequence necessary for effectiveness. Representation in government for Black people must be more than just a personal social achievement. The political office for Blacks got to be for real. It must have Bernard McGuirk, the pro ducer, who chimed in, "Some hardcore hos." Then Imus countered, "That's some nappy-headed hos there, I'm going to tell you that." Now, he is trying to grace fu lly remove his f oot from his mouth. Someone needs to tell him that an apology now is -tantamount to closing the barn door after the horse has hauled butt down the road. Imus now claims to. be "embarrassed" about the comment. But in all likelihood, he is surprised that his comments brought about su"ch negative criticism; Chances are, if he'd gotten a rousting round o f applause, h e would have gone further and made other tasteless comments. specific goals in mind for the group of Americans who are so distinct, they have emerged out of 450 years of human bondage segregation and discrimination in this land. No other group of American citizens can claim or now suffer such a disadvantage. But the biggest tragedy is that Blacks have never been "reparated" for that injustice Of human bondage. Did you know that there was an import tax of $10 a head for every Black-person who entered this land under the banner of slavery? Government and American Democracy is serious business in this land to this very day. This is especially true for African Americans. Nowdo you know why we must comprehend what government and political offices are all about? (to be continued) It seems that the owners o f MSNBC cable station where the show airs, should take into consideration that everyone is not amused by racially directed comments. The station has said his com m ents were inappropr iate." Whatever that mea ns. And of course, some folks sucp as Rev. Jesse Jackson and Rev. AI Sharpton had comments. of their own to make. R ev. Sharpton called for his immediate t ermipation . He also plans to file a complaint with the Federal Communications Commission. Rev. Jacksonis call ing for a nationwide bo ycott of the station. :f ;r : Obviously the r e i s nothing funny about the comments he made. Perhaps, he should try out Qis comedy act before But, since that didn't happen, now he's sorry and wants the world to know that h e 's "a good person who said a bad thing." _hegoes on the air. The n he wouldn' t have to ope n his mouth and insert both feet immigrants, are subject to double blows of racism." Clearly showing a pattern of racism in the application of U. S. immigration laws, the report concluded that hmwgrants from Africa, Asia the Caribbean and Latin Hispanic countries are most often detained, deported and denies legal status and protection. The report found immigrants are_ also targets of racial profiliJ?.g by law enforcement officials, often victims of hate crimes and suffer unequal treat-ment within our legal and criminal justice systems. Many supporters United States should review' its immigration policy for Haitian people, especially those who risk starvation and their lives for an opportunity to escape oppressiv e government regimes. We support such a review, .and so urge our Congressional representative to do so, Immigrants die daily to reach our shores for more than minimum wage jobs. It's calle d "Freedom!" Pass it . -. on.

If the investigation reveals that this is truth, then we as a nation need to stay clear. Our involvement should be to keep a watchful eye to e-nsure that the fighting remains contained to the Middle East, and does not pose an actual threat to the United States. In other words, let them stay at home and fight until their hearts become content.

It brings us to the question: How much longer is the United States going to play big brother to the rest of the world? How much longer are we going to travel the globe being the peacekeepers of the world? I thought that was suppose to be the job of the United Nations.

There is no doubt that Tiger is the best, but even the best must practice and play. Tiger's performance at the Masters was pathetic. Sure everybody at the tournament played poorly, but more is always expected of the best. Not one time in four rounds did Tiger break par. I don't think Tiger has ever hit so many balls in the water at a single event. Tiger went into this "Master playing fewer tournaments than ever before. Has he been reading his press clippings? I am sure that Tiger realizes that high expectations and criticism go with the territory of being the best. Hammering Hank Won't Point Fingers . Hammering Hank Aaron recently said he would. not beat the ballpark if and when Barry Bonds breaks his career homerun record, but he refused to point a finger or sling mud at Barry over alleged steroid use. When asked if an asterisk should be placed by Barry's name if he breaks the record, Aaron said no. He said no one has proven that Bonds has used steroids. Until somebody proves it, he will not have any comments. Kobe Shut Out Of MVPRace Sorry Kobe. In spite of your spectacular 2007 basketball season, you will not be the NBA's Most Valuable Player. The recipient of the MVP award has all but been decided, and you are not among the numbers. It appears that one debate over the MVP Award is whether to _give it to the Phoenix Sun's guard Steve Nash or Dallas Maverick's center/forward, Dirk Ninowinski. It doesn't matter that Kobe has outperformed both of them. Heat's Wade Returns To Line-Up After sitting out. for the past month and a half with a shoulder injury, Dwayne Wade made his return to the Miami Heat lineup. Even though Wade was not his spectacular self, it was good to have the team leader back going into the playoffs . Wade played 27 minutes_ and had 12 points on 6 of 9 shooting. He had 6 turnovers as the from inactivity showed. Dwayne has five more games to get himself ready for the playoffs. When the playoffs start, Dwayne will be ready. HALL'S TAX SOLUTIONS 2700 N.

SPORTS lm.us Grilled Over Racial Comments NEW YORK --Don lmus took a seat on the other side of the microphone Monday, appearing on the Rev. AI Sharpton's radio show and enduring more criticism for his offensive comments about the Rutgers women's basketball team. lmus issued another apology for referring to members of the team as "nappy-headed hos." Sharpton called the comments "abominable" and "racist" and repeated his demand that lmus be fired "Our agenda is to be funny and sometimes we go to far. And this time we went way too far," Imus to)d Sharpton. Earlier Monday, on his own radio show, Imus called himself "a good person" who made a bad mistake "Here's what I've learned: that you can't make fun of everybody, because some people don't deserve it," he said. "And because the climate on this program has been what it's been for 30 years doesn't mean it's going to be what it's been for the next five years or whatever." Imus said he was "embarrassed" by the remarks He said he had made the comments -in the course of "trying to be funny," but he was not trying to excuse them. DONIMUS scheduled to appear on Sharpton's show. "It's not going to be easy but I'm not looking for it to be easy," Imus said. Imus made the now infamous remark during his show Wednesday. The Rutgers team, which includes eight black women, had lost the day before in the NCAA women's championship game Imus was speaking with producer Bernard McGuirk about the game when the exchange began on "Jmus in th e Morning," which is broadcast to millions of people on more than 70 stations and MSNB C "That's some rough girls from Rutgers," Imus said. "Man, they got tattoos ... "Some hardcore hos McGuirk said. "That's some nappy-head e d hos there, I'm going to tell you that," lmus said . Imus also apologized on the air Friday, but his m e a REV. AL SHARPTON culpa has not quieted the uproar. The Rev. Jesse Jackson and about 50 people marched Monday outside Chicago's NBC towel to protest Imus' comments, and. an NAACP official called for the broadcaster's ouster. James E. Harris, president of the New Jersey cha pter of the National Asso ciat ion for the Advancement of Colored People, demanded Sunday that Imus "resign or be terminated immediately." Allison Gollust, a spokeswoman for MSNBC, said the network considers Imus' comments "deplorable" and is reviewing the matter. Karen Mateo, a spokeswoman for CBS Radio-Imus' employer and the owner of his New York radio home, WF AN-AM -said the company was "disappointed" in Imus' actions and characterized his comments as "completely inappropriate." "I'm not a bad person. I'm a good person, but I said a bad t hing. But these young women deserve to know it was not said with malice," he said.

GuiltY. Plea For Montgomery NEW YORK --Olympic sprinter Tim Montgomery, once considered the fastest man on Earth until his world record was erased in the BALCO steroid scandal, pleaded guilty Monday to conspiracy in a multimillion dollar bank fraud and moneylaundering scheme "I sincerely regret the role I played in this unfortunate episode," Montgomery said in a statement following the plea "I have disappointed many people, and for that I am truly sorry Montgomery's plea deal "reflects his minor role" in an alleged conspiracy and does not require him to testify at the trial of his former coach, Steven Riddick, and other co defendants, according to his lawyers That trial ts scheduled to begin Tuesday. It was not clear if Montgomery would have to serve any prison time because of the guilty plea. The U.S attorne y 's office had no comment. Montgomery, 32, was charged last year along with Riddick, and 11 others in an alleged conspiracy to deposit $5 million in stolen, altered or counterfeit checks at several banks over three years. An alleged coconspirator, Ephraim Richardson, pre viously pleaded guil ty to a singl e charge of conspirac y to commit bank fraud TIM MONTGOMERY The government had accused Montgomery of participating in a plot created by two other defendants who set up sham businesses to take checks stolen from banks and alter them or make counterfeits. Montgomery allegedly deposited three bogus checks worth a total of $775 000 He also was accused of helping Riddick deposit others worth at least $905,000 and accepting a $20,000 fee for his role. Riddick, a 1976 Olympic medalist, has maintained his innocence. Montgomery was a 200 0 Olympic gold medalist and a former I 00-meter world record holder. He retired in 2005 after he was banned from track and field for two years by the Court of Arbitration for Sport for doping linked -to -the inv e stigation of BALCO the lab at the center of a steroid scandal in sports. Montgomery never tested positive for drugs and has said he ne ve r knowingly took any banned substances.
