'Macle In America?' Says Who? .. : .. was the last time you bought something . anything -that was "made in the United States?" Indeed, is th'ere any wonder that a report from Global Insight, an international econo-my consulting company, predicts the United States' manufacturing industry will be by China c between 2013 and 2020? That is barely six years fE from now. However, in terms of sales revenues, C China will outrank America as early as next year. A list of products being manufactured, harvested > and sold to America gives to Global < c Insight's predictions. The list includes toothpaste, en food products and food ingredients, vitamins and seafood, etc. The list also includes jewell--ry, shoes, car parts; clothing and computers, among other things we Americans consider indispensable. But along with imported products comes imported w dangers. Heightened awareness of some of the C health risks associated with food, clothing and jewelry items imported to America as portrayed by recent news stories, raises countless questions not Ill only about the safety of outside imports, but also lr about our nation's ability to sustain an internal z workforce under pressure by the continued export t:i of jobs oversea,s. . ...J Added to'national worries, what does all this mean 5 for Black Americans? Well, consider that '9 the bulk of the more than three million jobs lost to o.;erseas outsourcing over the past six years has Z been in occupations. heavily populated by Black !z Americans .. jobs including automobile manufacturing, customer services, etc. Secondly, Black peo<( pie need to be inform:e.d of the ,fop occupations, C which show growth liere-in America, in.order for 'them to be prepared to compete for and possibly fill Li suchjobs. . More importantly, Blacks should pursue owner'ship of companies that are showing the fastest growth as well.

The word "Jul!eteenth" actually refers to the date, June 19th. And, it reflects the oldest known celebration that focuses on the end of slavery in the United States. The origin of the word dates back to 1865, at the end of the Civil War. During those days, there were no telephones and news usually spread by word of mouth So, it was not uncommon for people to learn information months later. This was the case with the end of the Civil War. Slaves in Texas had no idea that the war had ended and they had been freed on January 1, 1863 when President Abraham Lincoln signed the.

However, instead of freezing property taxes at current levels as a relief to property owners, what Florida Legislators have done is make tax cuts that could very well threaten public safety, emer-gency services and general quality of life for years to come. Already faced with a struggling residentialsales market, affordable homes planned for the Central Park Village redevelopment project may now become one of the latest casualties of this recent tax cut "Comedy of Errors." Indeed, the most recent plans for developing the former 483-unit Central .Park public housing project -which called for 1,100 condominiums and 750 apartments, 670 of which were earmarked for low-income residents as well as office space and retail stores -have reportedly hit a serious iceberg and like a doomed Titanic, are taking on water. . Reportedly, stagnant home sales and property tax cuts have causedCentral Park Village developers to consider reducing the number of affordable homes planned for that area by {18 units. And here's where we sound a Even though the property tax reduction will mean less tax revenue for the special tax district created to support the Central Park Village project, the affordable homes, which surely and overwhelmingly helped to garner community support, should not be sacrificed as part of the project, yes? . And once again as always, Black make up a significant number of applicants qualifying for affordable housing, especially in the Centr-al PaJ,"k Village project. No, there will be no lack of condominiums (nearly 1o,ooo) in the downtown area over the next 10 years. However, there will continue to be a growing need for affordable housing in and around the downtown area. .Therefore, we are convinced affordable housing for the Village project should be left alone. Furthermore, please let Florida homeowners understand, we do not blame your willingness to speak up as a for what we believe is discriminatory business-as-usual.

. COLUMNS -1 c m (/) 1-_:_-__ : ---1 I .J.:._-:::_::: I Martin Chambers: An Unlikely Hero! B free. But the truth about Crispus Attucks is he was a drunk. And in 1775, on the cobblestone streets of Boston, Crfspus Attucks was a drunk, in the wrong place at the right time, as history would pick him to be the first American patriot to lay down his life for the cause of the American Revolution. Two hundred years later, history would do the same thing for Martin Chambers. Who was Martin Chambers? Some said he was a petty-thief... a high school dropout who hung out with the wrong bunch and was hellbound for disaster. That's what some said. But regardless of what people said, wh.at did Martin Chambers have in c_omi110n with Crispus Attticks? Attucks was from Boston; Chambers was born in Tampa. One thing they had in common was they both were born on the bottom of society. In the scheme of things, they both were. with names that would never have turned a head one way or anoth,er. Therefore, one could add tl1e names of Crispus Attucks and Martin __ Chambei;S ,to other names like Emmett Till and Martin. Luther King, Fo,r surely, before history took a liking to either one of them, neithel one of them was lauded bi anyone except their mothers and perhaps their fathers. So, wlpt else did>Tampa-born Martin Chambers and Boston-born Crispus Attucks have in common? As you remember, Attucks was credited for beginning a revolution that ultimately gave birth to the United States of Ame.rica. : Whaf did young Martin Chambers give birth to? "Neither chick nor child!" Ai1d yet, others would argue this young man's death fathered a revolution whose flames still lick the conscience of the City ofTampa. -. Yes, Martin Chambers also died. Some said he died heroically:Others said they couldn't forget how he was shot in the back by a policeman's bullet', after he (Chambers) and several of' his friends had been caught in a burglary, and were being chased by authorities. For many years, people pointed to the wire fence Chambers tried to scale when an officer's bullet brought him dow.n. Indeed, the fence became a shrine; until it too was brought down as one of the final victims of the City of Tampa's ceaseless Urban Renewal mentality. The fence stood, said many, directlybehind what used to be the Red-TQp Bar, on what used to be the southern periphery of the no longer alive Central Aveoue. But what did that have to do with anything? How did the death of an itinerant street urchin elevate him to the heights of heroism? Was it because -as said by a prominent Tampa attorney -Chambers was executed by being unarmed, and shot in the back by police? If so, that was not unusual. However said history, Martin Chamber's death sparked one of the most disruptive, most controversial riots ever to take place in the City of Tampa! Said history, Martin Chamber's death as did the deaths of Crispus Attucks, Martin Luther King, Jr. and Emmett Till who was murdered for whistling at a white woman in Mississippi signaled a major and some say "vicious" turn of events that would change this sleepy Southern town forever. would finally give Tampa the right and the reason to tear down th.e heart and soul of Black pride in its community, to dismantle, in 1973, the rem nantsof Central Avenue, and blame its destruction on the revolution begun in 1967 by the death of young Martin Chambers. But in the interim for many; Martin Chambers became a hero! He is a hero nbw, as many still argue what place he should have in local if not national history books. He is a hero in the words that po 'ur from lips and memories of them w_ho knew him, his moth er and the times that spawned them both. Indeed, it makes us wonder about his hero-busi ness. It makes us wonder if the truth .isn't sitting out somewhere, laughing at all of us! -"The Voice of Our community Speaki'}g for.ltselj" L 0 R I 0 A 813) 248_ -1921 Another: Vievv c )> c... c z m ........ I:JyRANDOLPH KINSEY Local Governments Tighten Belts ............ ,-. . } -x ocal property owners are demanding property tax cuts. Local governments are crying over how tax cuts would decrease their budgets. Local governments, the county, the city and the school board are claiming that they will have to cut services and lay off employees. The property tax cuts just may be the best thing to happen to local governments and government agencies . The time has come for all of these organizations to engage in some belt tighten ing. While no governmental agency will admit it, they are all top heavy with administrators and high salaries. Local governments do not need to cut services. Services are already being provided at a low leveL Neither citizens nor governments can afford any cut in services. However, it is time to review the number of employees in administration, and determine how much these people are needed, how much duplication of efforts are we paying for and how much total money is being spent on. salaries for administrators. By eliminating some of these unnecessary administrative positions, and cutting the salaries of some of these overpaid desk holders, services would not have to be cut and property taxes would not have to continue to soar. No one in their right mind can truly argue the fact that local governments have s 'ome fat, and some waste that needs to be eliminated. B_eing America's next city does not have to mean administrative staffs and big payrolls. This just may be one of the few tim.es our leg islators are right. Governments all over waste a lot of taxpayer's dol lars. It is not just local gov.ernments and their-agencies. It is state and federal as well. If all levels of governments eliminate the waste, the tinsels and the feather bedding, we would need fewer citizens' tax dollars and would be able to do a better j'Jb of providing needed services to citizens. If property tax cuts interfere with local government's budgets, cutting services should be. the last thing to 0 occur. Government reorgani-zation, position eliminations l> and salaries should be (f) looked at first for savings. ::! z Arnd 'The Way; It 1s ,_ ---. . . .. . m r-1 I:D c r rm ::! z Not Without Our Fatherl : ., c I:D .. : .. since the days of -John Q, Will Smith's The : James Evans' Pursuit of Happyness and Good Times, Bill Ice Cube's Are We Done Cosby's The Cosby Show Yet have provided some hope and Robert Townsend's from Hollywood.

. SPORTS Motorcycle Accident Leaves LaVar Arrington With 'Serious Injuries' LANHAM, Md. (AP) Former Redskins and Giants linebacker La Var Arrington was hospitalized with serious but not life-threatening injuries after his motorcycle crashed on a highway ramp Monday, police said. Arrington lost control and hit a guardrail, Maryland State Police Sgt, Russell Newell said. He said police did not know how fast Arrington was traveling. Arrington, who turns 29 Wednesday, was wearing a helmet and alcohol was not involved in the accident, Newell said. Arrington was issued two citations --one for operating the motorcycle without a proper license and C the qther for the crash itself. 0: Washington drafted u..

New York released him in February as part of a salary cap purge under new general manager Jerry Reese, leav ing Arrington to rehabilitate his injury while looking for another team. While with the Redskins, Arrington became the team's most popular player and signed an eight-year, $68 mil lion contract extension near the end of the 2003 season. \ But Hall of Fame coach Joe Gibbs returned to the team with a new coaching staff in 2004, and Arrington's relationship with Washington began to sour. He hurt his knee early in the 2004 season and played in only four games. In April 2005, after a second knee operation, Arrington criticized team officials for failing to support him during his injury. He also became involved in a dispute with Redskins owner Dan Snyder over a $6.5 million bonus Arrington said was missing from the final version of his contract. The contract dispute was eventually settled, but Arrington then had a hard time getting on the field. He was used sparingly in the first six games of 2005 and didn't play at all in a loss against Denver. There was a sense that Arrington didn't fit well with defensive coordinator Gregg Williams' disci plined schemes. without a sack. >1---------------------------------------------------------------w c w X en :J ID ::) a. z ..J ..J ::) ID .:.. w z i= z w en g a: 0 ..J u..

The man pushing the deal was Don Stabler, an associate brought in by Randy whom Michael said left a great first impression. "He reminded me of people 50 Cent To Avoid Stand At Iverson Trial 50 CENT Rapper 50 Cent will not have to testify at the upcom ing trial of Denver Nuggets guard Allen Iverson in Washington D .C. this month after a federal judge ruled Friday that'he lives too far from the courthouse Two patrons of a bar in downtown D.C. are accusing Iverson of assault, consptra cy and other charges stemming from a fight between. customers and members of his security detail. While 50 wasn't involved in the fight, lawyers for the patrons said the rapper knew some of Iverson's security staff and could testify at trial about their behavior. 50, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, argued that since he was not' involved in the fight and is not named in the lawsuit, he could not be forced to travel from his home in Hartford, Connecticut to testifY at trial, which begins June 27. A fed eral judge agreed, saying she did not have jurisdiction because Jackson lived more than 100 miles from the court. The. plaintiffs are seeking more_ than $5 million from the security guards and Iverson, a former college star at Georgetown University in that live -in mid-America like Indiana," Jackson testified. But Jackson soon became uncomfortable with Stabler and eventually finan cial advice from billionaire Ron Burkle, a friend of former President Bill Clinton. Burkle, in turn, brought in Jesse Jackson to help with the consultation. Must TheMPC2000 Call: 850-1484 Judge Dismiss Charges Against Fabolous NEW YORK --A judge has dismissed illegal weapons charges against Fabolous th.at put the Brooklyn rapper behind bars for a night last October. Fabolous was arrested Oct. 17 after he was treated for a minor gunshot wound following a wild night at Justin's, a Manhattan restaurant and club owned by Sean "Diddy" Combs. A prosecutor said Thursday that authorities were unable to prove that Fabolous, 27, or three defendants were the owners of two loaded handguns found in a car in which they had ridden. "He's more relieved than happy," the rapper's lawyer, Alberto Ebanks, said Thurs' day. "He should never have been here in the first place." Trouble at the celebritystudded nightspot began when someone snatched a $50,000 chain off the neck of then-Boston Celtics point guard Sebastian Telfair. Gunfire later broke out in a parking lot near the restaurant. Fabolous was hit in the right thigh, then escaped the scene with three other men in a Dodge Magnum sport utility vehi cle. While he was being treated at a hospital, police searched the vehicle and found two handguns, a .40 caliber and .380 caliber semiautomatic. Neither gun was registered, and police said the serial number on the .380 had been ... LL CAPS:. FABOLOUS sera tched off. "There were four guys in the car," Ebanks said. "My client jumped in the back seat of the car after he was shot. It was not the car he came to the club in." Ebanks suggested in October that Telfair and Fabolous were victims of robbers who were targeting the club's high-profile clien tele. "These were people preying on celebrities," Ebanks said at the time, "and my elient was obviously _targeted because he is a high-profile celebrity and platinum-selling artist." Detectives had Telfair view police lineups with sus-. pects in the chain theft, but he failed to identify anyone. Fabolous, who was born John was in the courthouse Thursday, but stayed outside the courtroom after his lawyer told him the case was being dismissed His latest hit, "Malle Me Better," is one of the top rap singles in the country.

Sentinel Editor Charles Frederick Hearns has decided to bring his career with the CHy of Tampa to a close after 32-/2 years. Fred. (or Frederick) as he is known throughout the conmunity, will retire on July 13t he announced Monday. Hearns, 58, started with the CitY of Tampa in January 1975 as a Community Relations Representative, having been hired by Alton White. At that time, Bobby Bowden was Department Head and Charles-"Goosby" Jones was the Director. Hearns workt:d 17 years under George Davis. As he reflects on the years, Hearns can recall so many lessons that he .learned from these great men, as well as the lessons he learned from C. Blythe Andrews. "It's not everyday that you find a person working from the same office for 32 years," he explained. "But it was a job of helping people, people with various issues of discrimination, many issues that did not make the news. Then, too, it was a job that. I loved what I was doing." Hearns started his work career at the Florida Sentinel in 1966. He was a sports writer, covering Middleton and Blake High Schools sports. He worked dur ing the summers while a student at the University of South C. FREDERICK HEARNS Florida. His career as a journalist took him to the St. Petersburg Times, andthe Ft. Lauderdale Sun Sentinel, back to the Sentinel for about a year on a full time basis. He then ventured to Southern University where he was the Sports Information Director for 4 years before returning to Tampa and the position with the City. The time to retire is coming at a good time for Hearns. It's a time that he can finalize the plans on the business he will be starting in the fall Tampa Bay History Tours, LLC, a family business of which he will be President. Hearns has been doing bus tours of what started out as "Central Ave. Tours" since 2005. "Ifwas in April of that year during 'Fair Housing Month' that we held the first tours for the Robert W. Saunders Library. Since then, my passion for history tours has grown and the once a month tours that once covered the Central Avenue district have extended into Ybor City." When the Tampa Bay History Tours, LLC, starts in tile fall, Channelside will also be a part of the bus tours. The tours will be held Monday through Friday. About two weeks ago, Hearns took a tour in Memphis, which confirmed his desire. to start the business. "There is so much history in Memphis, but Tampa has a lot as well-varied history." Hearns is a member of the International Association of Official Human Rights Agencies (IAOHRA), National Association of Human Rights Workers (NAHRW), and past president of the Florida Association of Community Relations Professionals (FACRP). He is also a member of Allen Temple AME Church, Omega Psi Phi Fraternity and President of the Robert W. Saunders Library, Inc. "It's just unbelievable the. number of friendships I've made over these years," he said. "It makes you feel good to know that you've been able to make a difference in a lot of people's lives. As I move into the next phase of my life I'm so excited about the tours and more lives that will be touched." Gwendolyn Hayes can be reached at (813) 248-1921 or emailed at editor@flseutincl.com.
