I told them about all the .amenities and I want them to see the inside and judge for themselve s." Randhawa said all the rumors and misinformation was dealt with at the meeting and laid to rest. "I really felt good about that, because I think that misinformation left many of the residents very upset. "I feel I have more commu nity support than before.

Randhawa said in terms of community support, he's more confident going into the April 26th meeting before the Tampa City Council. "The project will be done in three phases. In the first phase, 8 units will be constructed and sold, then the next phase will begin. Each phase after that will be a repeat of the first. The entire project will take 3 to 4 years to complete." AI Barnes, who initiated a petition among residents in the area, says as far as he's concerned, they're at an impasse. "Some want the project to go forward, but some of us don't' want to see the zoning change. We'll speak out again at the City Council meeting on the 26th "I'm concerned about my neighborhood, and what's right for us. We prefer to have it single-family dwellings instead of a gated community This is just how I feel as an individuaJ. My wife will go with the group to look at the Sheldon Road project East Tampa Revitalization Partnership Chairman Sam Kinsey said he thought it was a good m e eting and residents express ed and listened to the developer . "I think everyone now understands what's going on More people away from this meeting with a different view on the proposed project the meeting was over, not as many were concerned about the project as before. More are willing to consider it as a viable project" itandhawa said economi cally, he thinks the location of the proposed project works in favor of the people who will move into the gated communi ty. Although he was not on the agenda to appear, County Commis s ioner Kevin White addressed the Transportation Task Force Committee during their Monday meeting. Of concern to Commissioner White was the future of'the 40th Street widening project. "Currently, there is a $3 million to $6 million shortfall to complete the widening of 40th Street. That is most ly due to the escalating costs of fuel and production costs." Commissioner White also said there is still more right-of-way acquisitions that need to be made. "I want to make sure the Task Force keeps the future of 40th Street their top priority. I want them to find a way to get the funding so the COMMISSIONER KEVIN WHITE project can be completed." Commissioner White was first involved with the project as a Tampa City. Councilman. Reporter Leon ]1.

FEATURE -i c: m (J) c Senator Energizes Crovvd Of 2,000 During Tampa Visit )> '"'0 Sen. Barack Obama greets supporters shortly after finished speaking Sunday afternoon. The Democratic presidential candidate raised about $250,000 for his campaign during his visit to Tampa. BY ANTI ONE DAVIS Sentinel Staff Writer On a windy Sunday afternoon in Tampa, Sen. Barack Obama said that he felt, "the breeze of change blowing through. A crowd of almost 2,000 people listened intently to the Democratic Presidential candidate at the Cuban Club in Ybor City. "I know Tampa that you're tire d of politics that are long on rhetoric and short on fol low-through's. It's no wonder that the Americ a n p eop l e a r e skeptical when it comes to politics. Americ-ans are tired. '6f .the okey-doke, they are !wed of being bamboozled by .. peo ple in Washington D.C.," said Sen. The Illinois Senator also spoke energetically about his plans to increase teacher's pay, provide universal healthcare and withdraw troops from Iraq. "We are. in a war that should never have been waged. It is time to get our _troops out ofiraq," said the 45-year-old presidential candidate. "I will never send our troops into a war unless we have a well-defined mission, and unless we have exhausted all other possibilities. "You all know what the problems are. We've bee n going through the same problems for the past six years. We have a healthcare system that is broken, that's bankrupting families and our government," said Sen. Obama. "We have an economy that's never been more profitable, and yet for ordinary folks who don't live on Wall Street, they are still living from paycheck to paycheck, struggling to pay their healthcare bills. It is time to turn the page; it's time for something new. A new breeze is blowing. A fresh wind is coming through. That's what makes me feel optimistic According to Frank Sanchez, a member of Tampa Bay Friends of Obama and Sen. Obama's local advisor says that rough ly $250,000 was raised for the senator's campaign during his Tampa visit. "Everything went very well. The Tampa area has made a great-contribution to this campaign," said Sanchez. "Sen. Obama will be back Rev. Earl Mason, Sr., pastor of Bible-Based Fellowship Church of Temple Terrace, was on hand for the rally. not just b e cause of the finan cial contribution but becaus e Tampa is a vital are a in his qu est to b e the n ext president of the Unite d States." Attendees Excited About Sen. Campaign An extremely diverse crowd gathered at the Cuban Club in Ybor City Sunday to hear Sen. Barack Obama. People of all ages and races were in attendance to listen and support the Illinois Senator. Several of the attendees expressed their views of the Democratic presidential candidate and his views. "Sen. Obama makes the issues facing this nation easier to understand. I think that a lot of people are turned off from politics because so many p e opl e in Washington D.C. give you this jargon and rhetoric tha t many p eople can't connect wi th," said Fredrick Jamison, a West Tampa resident in attendance at the rally. "It helps to hear someone in politics who not only knows how to clearly explain what's going on in the country, but has a plan to make things better." Beverly Patterson was Gabriel Pierre and Brian Stephens were on hand Sunday afternoon for Sen. Obama's rally.

We also commend the companies who pulled their advertisements from the Don Imus time slot as an indication of their sensitivity to the issue. But we're not naive. We understand there is still much to do before America is free from its curse of racism and sexism. Moreover, we are perplexed at how some of the same news columnists and commentators who have called for a boyhat unorthodox, but given how close our culture has been stereotypically connected with the animal species called "chicken," we 1 1 : 1 :r ly to make the world safe for democracy, Black leadership closed ranks with fellow white countrymen. Historian John Hope Franklin had this to say: "The talk of democracy dur ing the war had raised vague hopes even among the most militant African-Americans. Both at home and abroad they had supported the war that was to make the world safe for democracy. Perhaps it was too much that there could be the full realization of democracy within the foreseeable future. It was not too much, most AfricanAmericans resolved, to hope that the war's end would usher in a new per_iod of opportunity both in the area of economic life, and in the sphere of Civil Rights. Doubtless they realized that the pursuit of democracy was a continuing process that had to be carried on long 'after tb-e last gun was fired. Aside from the fact that money being spent to carry out the wal;' could be used to make life better for the economically oppressed here at home Ms. Iris Holton I say to you that the victory which finally came in World War II liberated and brought great opportunity to millions of European Jews. Of the 12 million .or more that were put to death in the Holocaust,, their offspring survive today in a new Israel they seek to establish on that same. soil where Jesus was born, crucified, and res urrected. By no means was it sheer accident that Jews were at the forefront of the Civil Rights Movement led by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and others during the 1950s and 1960s. The Deadly Daddy Syndrome Part I death of pregnant women all 9ver the .. country has risen t o a near crisis level. Bu t what is even more alarming is the cause of their deaths. It' s not due to high-risk pregnancies aneurisms, severe blood loss during delivery, or other symptoms that pregnancy. generates It is due to homicide and the culprits are husbands and boyfriends or partners in recently terminated relation ships. It is a growing tragedy and women should be aware the warning signs. Criminologists have defin ed the reasons for the homi cides as wanting to control or the loss of control, jealousy, finances or the termination of the relationship. And it seems that no woman, regardless of her economic station in life Men from all walks of life have been arrested, charged, and convicted of murdering their spouses. These men decide that the woma'n, the fetus or both must die, then the set about carrying out the sentence What's more, many of those convicted have no his tory of violence i11 their backgrounds. Some even have children with other women The backgrounds of these men vary with many being business owners, professionals, athletes, blue collar workers, or drug dealers. It seems that there is no "type" of man and any man has the potential of becoming a killer. It also appears that time in the relationship is not a factor However, in inany of the cases, isolation is a tell-tell sign. The men seem to get the women away from family and fz:iends before ing the Dr. Jekyl and Mr. Hyde personality. Studies of women who managed to escape with their lives have said that the then become verbally abtJ.sive, threatening, and even talk of suicide. But the one common denominator is that the women are told they will never be allowed to leave the relationship. And for those who are allowed to leave,_ they must leave the child or children behind Some of these cases have drawn national media attention, oftentimes with-an unknown .culprit being rthe or disof the woman (TO BE' CONTINUED). '\, :-! thought you might find it interesting: Scientists tell us the lowly chicken has a rather superior genetic legacy. So, if you're eating fried chicken or scrambled eggs right now, you might want to push your plate aside while we tell you what the world of science has discovered. -According to geneticist John Asara and a team of researchers from Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, a recent DN4 reveals the chicken has an ancestor that reaches back to the Pleistocene Its name i's Tyrannosaurus Rex. "T. Rex" for short. Says Asara, "Based on the small sample we've recovered, may be the closest relatives to the T. Rex." "I'd call that di.scovery a milestone," adds paleontologist Hans La-rsson of McGill University, Montreal. So, does that mean we can look forward to chicken chromosomes behig used to reconstruct and reproduce hybrid T. Rexes, ala' Jurassic Park, or could this be an explanation as to why certain people who eat too much gospel bird suffer sobering night:. mares? Who knows? But one thing 'is for sure. If we take John Asara's discovery seriously, we may never lick our chops at chicken the same way eyer again. This brings us to the moral of our story: Be care'ful.who you suck your at! Pass it on!

But don t you wish y ou had a nickel for every time they called him a "nigra" (or something worse), or for every inning they booed him onto the field and off the field, in the same game? If we had a ni c k e l for every time they in sult ed him I guess we d a ll b e rich, by But I still can't understand it! I know the man had ears. But how could he keep down all the garbage we know he heard? How could he stomach all the times he heard them talk about his mother as if she were a two-bit whore and he was her bastard? How did he keep from puking or screaming, that time when a so-called fan threw a live black cat at his feet, then claimed the cat was his brother .. or the countless times pink, puckered lips spat tobacco juice in his face and asked him how he could tell the difference? And then there was the incident when a player on an opposite team split open a watermelon and invited him to dinner, in front of 30,000 fans! Indeed, how did he ever keep his head up high, knowing half his home team had signed a petition requesting he leave the team immediately? Why? Because he was Black! That's why. And do you think you could have stood it, when they went after your wife and children like they tore after his wife and children? Could you have held your peace and stuffed your fists into your pants pocke.ts? Couid you have kept the heels of your shoes from scraping a "C" on your enemies' cheeks, as they giggled like hyenas at the fact you were the best they' d ever se e n a nd you had the nerve to be Black? This man I'm talking about (for, yes, he was a man) was not the first of his color though he was no doubt the first of his kind. And what kind was that? It was the courageous kind! The dignifie d and defiant kind! The cool, calm, patient, and persevering kind! The colo r b arrie r breaking and record shattering kind! The kind that makes every r a ci s t eat worms and m akes e v e ry baseball hit b e com e a homerun. no matter what the umpire claims You know quite what kind I'm talking about. This man I'm talking about was our kind! THE AMERICAN KIND! His name was, is and forever shall be JACKIE ROBINSON. Straight from the womb of segregat e d Am erica, h e was picked out of a line-up of Black baseball giants, was buffed and rubbed with hero's oil and sent like a blood-stained martyr onto a lily white baseball field, full to the top with lions! And yet, every time he grabbed a bat, young Robinson swatted stars! Sixty years ago, he did that. Sixty years ago, Jackie Robinson took Major League Baseball General Manager Branch Rickey at his word and became the first African American to play major league baseball, just as 17 years later, Massanori Murakami would become the first Japanese player to Jom a reluctant American Major League, and just as one day in the near future, a woman will take her place alongside the best professionals to ever swing a bat. Y'see, Amerifa is raw, racist, sex iest, vulgar, filled with stereotypes and full of double standards. But one thing it also can claim is U'lat it i s a place where the Jackie Robinsons of the world --if they ve got the gumption --c a n knock hell out of the Ku Klux Klan! For that small mira' cle, we give thanks! COLUMNS er View What Is A Good Family? ..... -. ......... ble today and people are shocked These young sters are robbing, stealing, using drugs, selling drugs, killing people and doing a hoot of other things. People are so shocked about these actions, becaus e these accu s ed young peopl e come from 'g o o d f a mili es' Which brings me to the qu es tion as t o wh a t p e opl e con s id e r a 'goo d f a mil y' ? Does having g ood jobs, b eing educated, loya l church m e mb e rs, resp e ct e d members of the communi t y, and a community activist m ake a family a good family ? Sure, they are all traits of a good family but they don t nece s s a ril y make a good family. Famili es give their young o nes money, cars, fine clothes, jewelry, nice homes and almost anything else money can buy In this writer's opinion, thes e things alone do not make good families. Children need much more than this. I know of families that have little money, modest homes and just barely clothe and feed their children. They supplement their material gifts with love, discipline, support and moral princ iples. These thing s tend to guid e the conduct of most childre n eve n when they a r e out from under the watc hful ey e s of their parents or guardians. These parents re-emphasize thes e family values by spending time with their children. They know their children' s friends wh e r e their children go what they watch, what th ey r ead and what they li sten to They even play a vital role in helping their offspring to select their friends Is this exercising too much. control over their children? Absolutely not. Parents have to be involved in every aspect of their children's lives It is their absolute responsibili ty Many families that are conceived as being good families are not so. Their social life community involvement, jobs and religious activities make them too busy to have the time needed to effectively rais e and guide their young ones While parents are out doing their thing, their children are out doing their thing. Many times their children' s things eventually lead to trouble and embarrassment. In most cases, parents had no 0 idea of what their children were involved in and find > it hard to believe. en Parents should give their children what they need most . . discipline, bound-;ij aries, moral values and r;stress education.

LOCAL West Tampa Overlay Group Questions .Plans Of Developer Developer Ed Turanchik wants to add modern Spanish-Mediterranean style homes to a West Tampa community known for its historic wood-frame houses. However, the West Tampa Overlay District and CDC groups feel the West Tampa housing patterns must stay the same. West Tampa Economic and Community Development Director Michael Randolph said they feel Turanchik's plans are not consistent with keeping the housing patterns the same. Turanchik said because most of his lots are 25-feet wide, they don't meet the 30-foot-wide requirement the city has for bungalow style homes. Randolph said Turanchik's company InTown Homes has already completed construction of homes on 25-foot lots in the area. "I don't understand why he can' t continue to build on the lots the same as the other projects he's completed. I ED TURANCHIK .... .lnHomes Founder plan to talk to the Historic Preservation Committee, but I expect they will share our concerns. We will also meet with Turanchik again b e fore he takes his proposal before City Council. If he presents the same plan at that time, we will oppose it.

Turanchik said his pro posed design is popular in South Tampa and Davis Island, and he's aware they will be building on historic lots. "The design I've proposed will feature 1,450-squae feet of living space at a cost of $209,000.

Prospective buyers are very enthused about the design and it's good for families." Turnachik said his proposed design is within the overlay guidelines. "When they did the district, they tried to design some common denominators on it, to loosen the design guidelines. It doesn't preclude new designs. You just have to take it through a process. We think it makes sense and it's efficient." Turanchik said he plans to meet with the Overlay Committee again and he is looking forward to presenting the plan to the City Council April 26th. "People want affordable homes and that's what we're trying to give them. We've planned a dozen or so of these style homes throughout the area." Reporter Leon B.

The Children's Home Society MODEL Mentoring Program is seeking mentors that can volunteer one hour a week, two days a year or for some other specified amount time. Children in the program range from 4 to 18 years old and have parents that are currently in jail or prison. Carnie Bernhardt, the Program Supervisor for MODEL Mentoring says that roughly 11,000 children throughout the Tampa area have incarcerated parents. "There are about 40 kids on our waiting list in Hillsborough County. That doesn't include the other areas that we serve. The main characteristic we're looking for is dependability, said Bernhardt. "Male mentors needed most of all but we just need so me reliable adults to be mentors and big brothers and sisters to these kids. We don't want to break a little kids heart be.cause their mentor isn' t showing up." The program requires that all applicants be 21 or older; submit to a national background search and screening from the Department of Motor Vehicle (DMV) There will also be an orientation to adequately prepare the volunteers for mentoring. "Its become a fact that children who have consistent positive role models in their lives are less likely to use drugs, drop out of school and get into trouble," said Bernhardt. "We just want to help to make sure these kids keep moving in the right direction."

CREWS Sentinel Staff Writer Anthony Hampton has no background in the restaurant industry, but relies on what he's learned form his mother and wife when it comes to cooking. After working as a general laborer on area construction sites, Hampton decided in 2003 to start a mobile seafood business. Ja'Coby Fine Dining And Seafood offers door-to-door seafood delivery services at great prices, with a huge variety and virtually any thing you'd want in seafood. As an introduction to his business, Hampton has held 7 all-you-can-eat events in East Tampa, four of them at Rowlett Park. "I really like to cook and I think I can offer something great to the community. "The all-you-can-eat bash offers a variety of seafood, is an all day event, and even features exotic dishes like gator taiL" Ja'Coby's offers uncooked seafood in its door to-door service, but Hampton uses the bashes to give people a chance to sample the seafood. "I have an event planned for the open air market on 29th Street May 12th. I have another scheduled for June 16th and another on July 21st. All of the events will be in East Tampa." Hampton operates the business alone and also does all the cooking. He purchases his seafood daily from local distributors and guar antees it to be fresh ANTHONY HAMPTON When the bashes are held children 10-andunder eat free, and everyone else is charged $25 00 in advance; $::10. 00 the day of the bash. "A lot of people love seafood, and I'm sure they won t mind an all-you-can-eat bash that offers so much variety," said Hampton. I vyill also offer all seniors a 25% discount on their seafood purchases."
