Weed And Seed Meeting Held For East Tampa In attendance for the Weed and Seed Proposal Meeting were representatives from virtually every East Tampa civic, neighborhood, and social organization. On Thursday at the Ragan Park Community Center, Tampa Police Major Bob Guidara and William Daniels of the U.S. Attorney's Office presented a proposal to residents of East Tampa. The proposal was for the implementation of a Weed and Seed Program. The program will be funded for a s-year period with the goal of chang ing problems in East Tampa as it pertains to crimes, violent and non-violent. In his presentation to community representatives and others in attendance, Daniels pointed out the objectives of the program. The primary objective is to weed out the crime and criminals from your communities and seed in social services and community development. "T o do this, it will take a collaborative effort between the City of Tampa Police Department, Community Development, Parks and Recreation, Clean Cities, Code Enforcement, neighborhood residents, businesses, faithbased organizations, crime watch groups and educators." Federal support for the 5-year program will be $175,000 the first year, $250,000 the second, $275,000 the third, $2oo,ooo the fourth, and $100,000 in the final year, totaling $1 million. The affected area boundaries will be 30th Street to the West, 56th Street to the East, South to the Interstate, and North to Hillsborougli Avenue. Currently in that area, there are 10,000 residents, making the program an Urban Initiative under the guidelines of the federally funded program Each of the 5 communities within the area will need to create a needs assessment to determine exactly what's needed in their community. After that assessment, the y will have 2 months to apply for the funds to implement th'e program. The East Tampa Revitali za tion Partnership already has a program in place, and will combine their initiative with the Weed and Seed -initiative within the guidelines of the Weed and Seed Program. Tampa Police Lt. Craig Roberts will be the coordinator for the application process Reporter Leon B. Crews can be reached at (813) 248-0724, or e-mailed at leon@jlsentinel.com. SOfE.

Sometimes, that's the reason these things go unreported Family members talk you out of it or don t believe it ever happened. It' s hard to con vince someone in love with a man that he's a rapist. ANGELA MOORE ''I'm trying to create awareness. I know there are other women out there who've gone through this. I'm trying to convince them to take a stand and put a stop to it. If you don t they will continue to rape and molest other women even members of your family. They are sick and they need help. Ms. Moore said she s discovered that the men who perform these acts h av e problems in their past. I understand there is some fear. I understand that some victims believe the abusers when they apologize and say they won t do it again. But, they always do, and most victims never do anything." Ms. Moore said although she and her daughter continue to wear -the emotional scars from their incidents, they are capable of functioning normally and developing other relation ships. Sometimes you get a little apprehensive, but once you explain to your mate what's happened in your past, they understand. If they don't then you know that's not the right person for you.

We shall see where all of this leads us. However, we -' encourage our congressional representatives to take a u.. get tough attitude with pulling us out of Iraq and avoiding military conflict with Iran. We don't need two wars. Pass it on. Excessive Force: How To Avoid Its Usel time we read about a new case of an innoBlack or Hispanic person who is injured who loses his of her life during an exchange with a law enforcemept officer, we attempt to think of ways that the situation could have been avoided. W e already know it's a proven fact that Blacks and Hispanics are more likely to be searched, and subjected to the threat of force when stopped by a law enforcement officer. Because of these facts, we wish to share some tips -=r with our audience regarding how to conduct w themselves when approached by a police officer on the C!J street, Qr in a car, regardless of the reason. These suglf are supported by, and can be found in infor-The Need For Effective Police Sensitivity Training (Series) status of the Black community is under siege here in Tampa like a police state. The pres ence of police cars and white officers, who evidently lack sensitivity training, makes this presence most abusive to Black citizens. The current Chief of Police does not have a police review board to effectively involve meaning_ ful Black input.

My Point Of View El By Iris Holton The Most Serious Charge? aving been associat : ed with law enforce%>:""*-''''-""': ment for several years, I truly understand how p eop l e are charged with crimes. But while the taking of one's freedom is not a laughing matter, the manner in which charges are filed sometimes can be. Time and time again, we hear of an individual who faces a laundry list of criminal charges ranging from murder to kidnapping, and any multitude .of felonies. After the arrest of the individual, the system reflects page upon page of criminal charges. It is quite clear that the person will not see the light of day for a very long time if ever. So, why is it n ecessary to add minor misdemeanor charges as well? The answer is simple -they can. It's. almost comical to read the list of serious crimes only to reach the end of the document and realize the person has also been charged with --DRIVING WHILE LICENSE SUSPENDED OR REVOKED. It' s as if, the murder, armed robbery, kidnapping, or sexual battery charges don't stick, then that misd e meanor is sure to attract the .attention of the sentencing judge. In essence, all that does is result in adding another layer of paperwork to court computers. Iri the past, jail officials were required to tr-ansport the prisoners downtown to the courthouse to appear in person b efore a judge. However that practice was brought to an end after a prisoner escaped after being taken to court. But mistakes continue to happen Just this week, a man being held on armed battery charges appeared before a judge and was sentenced to time .served. He was mistakenly released from jail although the more serious charges were still pending. He allegedly contacted his attorney and surrendered, but he was in a position to seek out the alleged victim if he had chosen to do so Perhaps, if the state plans to continue pursuing misde meanor charges, they should be the last case heard before a judge The courts plan to bring a new computer on line next year that would provide real tim e data. But until then we wait. After all the most serious charge is what keeps a person in jail. If driving with a suspended license was the most serious charge, the court dockets wouldn'tbe overflowing. mation and brochures distributed by the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), and the National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives (NOBLE). First, we encourage our readers on the streets to answer all questions by any officer, remain calm and do not "run off at the mouth," even when you know the officer is behaving unprofessionally. Do not resist a body search, and follow all verbal instructions unless your healffi or personal safety is at risk. (In that case, ask to speak to the officer's supervisor.) If in a car, pull over onto a well-lit area where people ae visible. Stay in the car until told to exit. Don't make any udden moves, and let the officers know if you have to retrieve papers from the glove compartm nt or floor. Your car can be searched for "probable cause." Request tlte officer' name, bad 7e numb r and car number politely, if you are unhappy with how you're being treat d. We wish you all happy motoring.

"' 0 0 N SPORTS -a) N :E >ft t/) w SPORTS IDE WITH RANDY ..... Athletes vs. The Public And The Police Athletes are human beings. They have all of the frailties of any other human being. We all know this, but we are shocked every time one of them falls victim to humanism. We expect more of athletes. Today, athletes are waging a bigger battle with the pub lic, and the. police than they are with their opponents in the athletic arenas. Almost daily, we read about an ath-lete who has gotten in trouC ble with the police, and irked fE their public. c Athletes need to realize Z that they are public figures <( and whatever they do is going to make headline news. A running back may W score five touchdowns, and it could only be found on the a:> back page. w Beat yow_-wife, and make > the front page. Thai is just W the way it is and it goes with the territory. Because ath% letes are public figures-, they have to be careful where ID they go, who they go with and what they do. z -In spite of Charles Barkley's 'declaration that, "He is not a role model," athletes are role models. Whether athletes want to be or not, they are role models for young and impressionable children. Athletes must also learn that whatever they do, more will be made of it than it would be for any ordinary citizen. Athletes must know themselves, and be true to themselves They must seek anger management help if they need it, marital coun seling if they need it, alcohol or drug treatment if needed, and they must know and evaluate their friends and associates. This is more important today than ever before. Athletes are having their careers cut short for poor conduct as sports tries to clean up their declining reputation because of the conduct of its athletes. A good rule of thumb is to think two times before you act, before you blow your cool. Think how it is going to reflect on you, your family, your team and your sport.

Richardson coached the Albany Patroons to the Continental Basketball Association championship series last season .but was suspended after Game 1 while the league investigated a report that Richardson told the Times Union of Albany he had "big-time Jew lawyers" working for him. Richardson, 52, was cleared by the league earlier this month and allowed to return to coaching, but Albany had already decided not to renew his contract. "It was totally blown out of proportion," Richardson said. "It's over. Life goes on; you know what I mean? It was totally, totally, totally false." Richardson said he has a lawsuit pending against the newspaper but is looking forward to a new start and another chance to win a championship.
