"We need someone to speak up," said Ms. Mills. If everyone loved CJ as much as they've said, they need to speak up and bring who did this to justice." Ms. Mills said the police aren't to blame for the delay, because they can do nothing without the help of the people.

Ms. Mills said the amount of th e reward has risen to $ 2,700, and more donations a r e com in g in. Also, Crime Stopper s is offering a $1,000 reward I want to thank Valerie Blanchard for her don a tion to our family. She, like others have given out of the kindness of their hearts. "I just don't understand why would someone protect the person who did this? CJ didn't deserve to die this way." Ms. Mills said the people keeping quiet that know some thing should understand that one day it could happen to them or a member of their family. "What's to prevent the people who did this from doing it again? If we are truly a village, this is the time to prove it. This is an opportunity for us to unite and get these people off our streets and in prison where they belong. It's not fair that they should be free to do what they want and CJ is gone."

Environmental Detectives Patrol Illegal Dumping Sites This area along Lake Avenue near 37th and 38th Streets are the favorite illegal dumping sites in East Tampa. As you can see, someone has dumped a sofa and other items. Tampa Police Environmental Crime Detective Jonathan Belk said since November 2006, they have made more than 20 felony arrests of peo ple illegally dumping in East Tampa. Belk said of those arrested about half live in the TIF (Tax Increment Finance) area. I arrested a guy Thursday that was dumping for a church He lives in the Robles Park area, and the church had paid him to dump it legall y Instead, he decided to dump it at 30th Street and 38th Avenue. Of the f e lon y arres t s, Belk s aid most a ppear to be African Ameri ca n males w ho do haul ing for people "These gu y s come around and offer to haul stuff away for people, then dump it wherever they can Most of the commer cial dumpers are guys doing rehabbing and remodeling of homes. It appears a lot of them are Hispanic. Belk said th e illegal hot spots are at Lake and 3 7 Street, next to a graveyard, and Lake and 38th Street We have the areas posted, but they dump right next to the signs. We' ve considered installing surveillance cameras, but we11 have to see what's the best time to do that, and also try to improve the lighting in those areas. Most of the areas are pretty isolated. Belk said they see a lot of roofing materials, dry walls, wood siding, and other items from homes being rehabbed in East Tampa. "O f the,36 illegal dumping sites in East Tampa, 21 are within the TIF area. We ha v e two detectives assigned to patrol the sites, and we o w e a lot of thanks to Major Bob Guidara and Chief Steve Hogue for bringing attention to this problem and assigning detectives to try to stop the illegal dumping.

S. Rep. Kathy Castor announced last week the inclusion of three important initiatives to improve health care for all Floridians, particularly seniors, the underserved, veterans and our returning war fighters. The projects were included as part of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2008. "These initiatives will improve basic health care for the underserved, veterans and working folks in Tampa Bay," said Castor. Castor worked to have included in the bill $3.5 million for USF's College of Public Health. This health care investment will expand electronic medical records an d improve patient care at VA hospitals across the coun. try. Risk assessment, immunization screening and education are critical components of quality health care. Scpporters of electronic med ical records hold it out as an innovation capable of reduc ing the practice of variation and improving the quality of 1\l 0 0 ""-1 care. Castor won approval of $1o million for Moffitt Cancer and Research Institute to fight cancer, one of the leading causes o{ death in Florida. With 40.430 cancer deaths and 106,560 new cancer cases each year, Florida is second only to California in the prevalence of cancer, according to the American Cancer Society. Cancer 's incidence is even higher on some populations with rates accelerating among some racial and ethnic groups due to environmental and geneticrelated reasons. At higher risk are low-income families, the elderly, African Americans and Hispanics, very prevalent in District 11.

Several recent lawsuits, backed by federal research, may soon mark the end of this disparity for Black people. Lawsuits claiming that Blacks and Hispanics were charged higher auto loan rates than other car buyers are being settled. Plaintiffs requested that the court certify the cases as class actions so that all Blacks and Hispanic purchasers of new and used cars who were charged excessive finance charges will be able to receive compensation for damages and a refund of illegal finance charges. Research by. the Consumer Federatipn of America regarding 11 class-action lawsuits brought against major car finance companies and banks found that "Blacks and Hispanics were consistently charged higher interest rateson their loans even when there was little differences in such factors as amount financed, term ofloan an& creditwortf_qness." Comparing 2004 car loan data for new car purchases, Blacks paid .at least 2% more than Hispanic and white borrowers while Black and Hispanics paid 2% more than white borrowers for used car purchases. Moreover, three times more Blacks paid auto loan rates of at least 15% or more than whites for both and newcarsJ So, before you sign your c8r papers, make certain you,r interest rate is fair and is in line with other borrowers voth similar credit scores Better still, ask if the car _dealer has been part of a class-action lawsuit.

Understanding 'Reconstruction' And What Happened After Slavery {Series) .. orian John Hope ' . anklin wrote: .. .: "Through 1865 and 1866 Southern whites gradually assumed the responsibility of governing their people. The greatest concern of Southerners was the problem of controlling Blacks. There were all sorts of ugly rumors of a general uprising in which Blacks would take vengeance on whites and dispossess them of their property. Most Southern whites, although willing to concede the end of slavery even to the point of voting for adoption of the Thirteenth Amendment, were convinced that laws should be speedily enacted to curb Blacks and to ensure their role as a laboring force in the South. These laws, called Black Codes, bore a remarkable resemblance to the antebellum Slave Codes and can hardly be described as measures that respected the right of Blacks as free individuals." Franklin would go on to point out that the most dehu manizing of the "Codes" were "vagrancy laws which imposed heavy penalties that were designed to force all Blacks to work whether they wanted to or not." The control of Blacks by white employers was about as great as that which slave holders had exercised. "Blacks who quit their jobs could be arrested and imprisoned for breach of contract. "They were not allowed to testify," wrote Franklin, "in court except in cases involving members of their race Numerous fines were imposed for seditious speeches, insulting gestures o_r acts, absence from work, violat ing curfew and the possession of firearms." More pointedly, Franklin wrote, "There was, of course, no enfranchisement of Blacks and no indication that in the future they could look forward to full citizenship and partici pating in a democracy." Actually, to this very day there was and still is an attempt to put white people in control of all institutions and organizations that serve or come in contact with Black people. The few Negroes that get any clout or power in such agencies are controlled by white who keep them under surveillance. (To be continued.) My Point Of View By Iris HoJton Danger Still Lurks On past weekend, residents liv ng on the Georgia border were allowed to return home. They had been evacuated as several fires engulfed the land. However their stay at their homes may be short-lived Currently, more than 200 fires rage on and they could be forced to evacuate again if the flames become dangerous again. Recently, we experienced the smoke from the fires when the winds shifted. And those with breathing condi tions or sinus problems felt the effect immediately. But these residents have had to deal with the polluted air for weeks now. Most of those not directly in the path of the blazes can't relate to the situation Some view the news as if it were in some distant state, such as California. But that couldn't be further from the truth. Earlier this month, residents near Orlando were evacuated as two major fires burned in that area. The danger is closer than most people think. What s worse is that home owners try to stay as long as they can because they fear lpsing their property. While losing everything in a fire can be devastating, the loss of life is worse by far. These fires have been burning for several weeks and it seems that there is no end in sight. Some feel that a good rain may solve the problem But that might ere-ate additional fires. State-officials feel that while a good rain might help control the current fires, lightning strikes could start other fires. It' s a frightening situation all the way around So firefighters continue to do the best they can to con tain the fires. And, it doesn't help that the entire state is in a drought status. South Florida received a soaking this past weekend. But it wasn't enough to affect the water supply as most of the rain was in coastal areas Meteorologists say no sig nificantrain is on the horizon. T .he only thing that would.increase the water table as well as : help with the fires is a weak storm But who wants that, right? friends. We doubt that there are few of our who don't know someone w:ho has been pulled over by pollee, arrested for resisting arrest (with no other charges) or who doesn't have a story to tell about being mishandled during a traffic stop. This)s by no means to cast a shadow on the countless officers who do their jobs in an honorable and professional way. However, we doubt if our readers are aware that Black, Hispanic and white drivers aa:"e equally likely to be pulled over by Police, these days. But that is where the "equal" treatment ends. A study released last month by the U.S. Justice Deparbnent's Bureau Statistics shows that Blacks (9.5%) and Hispanics (8.8%) are more likely to be searched than are whites (3%). Furthermore, Black people are more than twice as likely to be arrested after a traffic Not surprising is the fact that even though force had been used t.6% of the time among police-public contacts, Blacks were three times more likely and were twice as likely as whites to be subjected to force or the threatofforce. The fl.gures suggest that many Black youth and adults need guidance on how to conduct themselves when confronted by a law enforcement ofticer, regardless.ofthe reason. Do you know your rights and responsibilities? Well, we'll talk about them, the next. time we see you. Pass it on.

Two questions: what are we going to do with all the young people? What are you going to do with your child or children? You can t leave them alone to care for themselves and just to roam the street. People have said for decades that idle minds are the devil's work shop. History will bear out the fact that this is true. Millions of children have destroyed them s elves or their lives over the years because of idle minds. I certainly hope that by now parents and guardians have plans in place to insure that their young ones have a safe, productive and busy summer. If this has not been done, then it should be done immediately. Summer school, reputable recreation centers like the Boys and Girls Club, joining constructive clubs, volunteer ing at some charitable organi zation or getting a summer job are just some of the ways to provide our children with safe, productive summers This is the time when more than any other time the slo gan that it takes a village to raise a child rings truest. Parents work and those who work at different hours or don't work at all must be vigilant to help our neighbors out. They do this by keeping their eyes and ears open, pro vide counseling and reporting to parents. History will also tell us that long, hot summers with noth. ing to do have created some perilous times right here in our city during the past. In spite of our efforts, many stu dents will not return to school next year. The reason being they will be in jail or dead. We need to do all we can to minimize those numbers. We cannot close our eyes to wrongdoing or to youngsters being misguided. Entir. e neighborhoods must work together to keep our children safe and out of trouble. Two and a half months may not seem like a long time for students to be out of school. But to unsupervised idle minds, that is an eternity. Schools should spend some time during this last week counseling our children about the need to stay out of trou ble Teachers should talk to them about having safe, productive summers and the need to return to school next term, safe and. sound. Children, parents imd adults, re member the word is a safe and productive summer for our children. 'TI r-0 :::0 c )> CJ) m z ::! z rn.. r-. I tD c r rm -t z ., c m ,... 'Let's Stop Runnin' Aroundl' c;; :I: m c m < m C ; n 2007, most of us hide L\< r&behind truth. When we to evaluate whatever it is that will propel and project us, Black America, to the next level, we fall short. Why? The fact that one's history is important to realizing one's future is an understatement. "If you know your history, then you would know where you coming from, then you wouldn't have to ask me, who the (bleep!) do I think I am," Bob Marley. We appoint committees, offer workshops and seminars, spend enormous amounts of money and docu ment countless hours to rec oncile differences, attitudes and resolutions concerning issues of Black and White America When we ask ourselves, "Why is the Black woman so aggressive," we fool ourselves when we don't consider everything that she's had to endure in this country The Black woma n ha s seldom had the luxury to stay at home and be a wif e and mother. As a of fact, she s rarely had an opportunity to walk into a fine department store and shop until she dropped." The "rock" that sits on her left finger is so unidentifiable until she's had to take a toothbrush, alcohol and run ning water to it just to remind Iierself that it does indeed sparkle. Our children today don't have dreams. They don't aspire to grow old, retire and enjoy the better days of their lives. We've allowed the ills and ftills of the world to come into our homes and pollute our children with its false hopes and empty promises. We send our children to school and have them take their own lives into their hands when all around them are liars, killers, pedophiles, drug users and dealers in the principal's office and. teaching classes. And, we wonder, what's to become of the children? Why is Black America fail ing in her health, employment and social status? Once upon a time it was against. the law for a slave to read or write. For knowledge is power. Power is strength. Strength is muscle. And, muscle, ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls is influence So-called and self-appointed leaders come and go. But leadership does not ask for acceptance, recognition or approval. It stands out above all the rest. It doesn't parade or flaunt.

SPORTS SPORTS IDE WITH RANDY NBA Playoffs Down To Four The National Basketball Association (NBA) has narrowed this years search for a NBA champion down to four teams. Those four teams are the Utah Jazz and the San Antonio Spurs in one conference and the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Detroit Pistons in the other. It is believed that the championship game will be played between the Spurs and the Pistons. The Jazz don't have the talent to compete 'o/ith San Antonio and the Cavaliers don't have the depth to compete with Detroit. Who will win the champi onship? Let us wait until the championship series before going into that. The Bucs Big Question People are asking all kinds of questions about the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but nobody is asking the big question that is in the back of the minds of so many. They ask who the quarterback will be? How effective will Simeon Rice be and so on. But nobody is asking the question as to whether or not this is Coach Jon Gruden's last season. Rumors seem to indicate that. The Glazers have remained silent about the status of their head coach. Another losing season should open the Glazer's mouths.

Culpepper dropped back and threw short passes dur ing drills with other quarterbacks. The one-day team workout was one in a series leading toward training camp in late July, and for Culpepper it was part of a long rehabilitation. DAUNTE CULPEPPER Coach Cam Cameron declined to assess Culpepper. Until a guy is 100 percent, it is not fair to evaluate him," Cameron said. "That's the approach, it simple.

"More research means more lives saved, particularly those that have less access to basic health care.

SWAT Team Arrests Murder Suspect In ValleJo VALLEJO A Richmond SWAT unit, aided by a Vallejo police and FBI agents, MAJOR surrounded EBERHART an apart-ment complex early Thursday, triggering a brief standoff that ended with a suspect suffering a minor arm wound before being taken int o custody. The drama began when the task of officers pulled up to one the rear buildings in the sprawling Sereno Village Apartment complex in the 700 block of Sereno Drive in Vallejo The Richmond police were there to serve a search warrant in connection to a murder <::ase on Major Eberhard, 40, of San Francisco. A witness told KTVU that officers stormed into the 400 building and raced upstairs p o unding on a door. Vallejo police Lt. Rick Nichelman said Eberhart fled to a rear balcony and brandished a weapon at officers below. Police fired at Eberhart who then went back inside the apartment. Po lice then negotiated with E berhart, who surrendered within a half-hour The witness said she heard police yell "I see a gun, I see a gun." Shots rang out and Eberhart was seen a short time later being led away arm bandaged in handcuffs. There have been two homicides and a shooting at the apartment complex this year, Nichelman said Details about the Richmond homicide were not immediately available. 9241 N 56th St., Tampa, FL M-F 8:30A.M 5:30P.M.
