He did go with her for her birthday on November 30th. Although Tyrie wasn't active in church, his mother said he knew the Bible. She said a family tradition is to read the Bible. On Thursday night before the shooting, Mrs. West said they read Psalm 91 and Psalm 23. "I always asked him who was in control of his life and he always said, "God. He said that last night."

Though there are millions of Black men like Obama, Black masculinity' has taken a documented beating for well over 400 years. This view is confirmed in an essay written 0 by David Johns, Senate Education Policy Advisor, in the z National Urban League's 2007 State of Black America. He c( states, "The social categorization of Black maleness, Black masculinity or Black identity was fashioned during and o codified after the formal collapse of the American instituCJ) tion of slavery and was socially constructed from narrowly defined understandings of white maleness. .,_ "In addition, Black masculinity is heavily imbued with > pernicious stereotypes introduced to strip enslaved ffi Africans of humanity." While we agree with Johns, we do > not absolve many Black men from their responsibility in W fueling the stereotypes through negative and criminal C behavior and by missing out on social, educational and economic opportunities that may have been available to them. CJ) However, now that we have a consummate Bla!!k male :J role as Pnesident, we encourage all unemployed Black men to seize this opportunity to take advantage of all a. that is good and beQeficial in our society. Furthermore, we z trust. our young Black men will pull up their pants and walk i= tall through ..their school halls, and will excel in the classW room. Indeed, the time is now for all absent Black fathers ...J ...J to reach' out to their neglected children and become loving ::l and supportive. Barack Obama the door.

But 'hrov ....... r was indeed, kidding, they picked a territime to play a joke! before Christmas, when they announced the shutting down of all 30 plants, even for a month, the Chrysler corpo-ration sent chills, not only through Detroit, but throughout the world ... and for compelling reason. In the words of a .news media correspondent, Chrysler's promise to stop production was a death-knell whose ripple effect impacted more than simply the lruyor car manufacturer itself. It affected most, if not all, of its subsidiary parts suppliers, dealerships and many other concerns whose livelihoods were fastened to the car manufacturer. According to the news, Chrysler's-stoppage of work, even for 30 days, put a hold on health insurance companies who served their employees, as well as on banking establishments who supported the thoUsands of workers who relied on for their daily well being. Indeed, Chrysler's decision to Wink out of existence for a liWe while placed a mortal. scare throughout the entire economic support system who, for years, its entire in&astructure around the fiscal that oa,:urs in a proeeas that is interdependent upon other processes in order to stay in exiStence. hi the end, grocery stores that supplic;d food for Chrysler workers and their famllies would be affected. Even schools would suffer the blow. In essence, every conceivable economic operation would feel the tremor of this truVor-corporation-gone-wrong. 'lit And what has been our government's response? Frankly, W many politicians believe Chrysler and its "Big Three" colleagues are simply crying "wolf." But this is our response. 11.: 'nUS IS CHRISTMAS, NOT HALLOWEEN! Accountability --s the year comes to an end, we still don't know if America is going to open its wallet to the Big 3 auto manufacturers. A deal was close to being made when one of the unions decid ed that they would not allow their employees to take a pay cut to keep the company afloat. I just don't understand the unmitigated gall of some folks. First of all, they are looking for a handout when they are the least likely to help anyone else. Secondly, their i>oorly con structed products seem to fall apart the day after the warranty expires A third point of interest is that the vehicles are overpriced and depreciate before the ink dries on the purchase Let's not talk about the fact that the bulk of the construc tion of these inferior proqucts is .manufactured in other cou -ntries. Yet, the CEOs of the Big 3 want us to bail them out. Of course, I would be remiss if I didn't address the issue of the union refusing to allow its members to take a pay_:cut. Someone needs to out that a pay cutis better than no check at all. And since we are talking about money, chances are Rick Wago-ner. of : GM, Alan Mulally, of Ford, and Robert Nardelli, of Chrysler, operate companies that are top heavy salary wise. When times were good, they squandered money and creat ed positions that didn't need to exist. I'm sure that they have not trimmed all of the : fat within the companies. Instead of trying to find a way to throw good money after bad, Congress should tell the Big 3 to merge the three companies and create products that are comparable fo. reign made cars. . ... The heads of. these comp;l'. nies had the nerve to take .their jets to Washington to beg for money. Of course ; .izes that there would be an adverse affect on the economy if somethin g is not done. If the companies fold, the effects would trickle down to any occupation remotely related to the auto industry. However, what I am say ing is Congress should hold them accountable for their mismanagement of the companies --stgrting with the CEOs and the union reps. Troy Colllen Fonner Hrlem Globetrotter! I first met the Harlem Globetrotter, in 1974 I felt like a dwarl in the presence of a gentle giant with a laughing voice. I'm referring to retired educator, athlete and community volunteer Troy Collier, who like many Globetrotters, has served as a role model and mentor to millions worldwide. But as an educa tor, he has helped thousands of college students and com. munity youth throughout ... J J, 1... . America, from Arizona to Iowa to Tampa, to succeed in college and in life, which he f()' today. The 6'8" Arizona native, who was always tall for his age, admits that from the sth grade on, people always assumed he was interested in basketball. However, aCOrding to Collier, he was awk ward, not athletic at the time and liked to read, more than he liked sports. In truth, said Troy, he wanted to director of a Boys Club. However, under pressure from friends and school coaches, he ended up playing basketball. By the time he became a high school senior; Collier had helped his team to win state championships imd had been named "Outstanding Player of the State of Arizona." After graduating from Phoenix College and Utah State University, Collier, who had always wanted to travel, was drafteq by the Los Angeles Lakers where he competed with three sevenfoot centers. So, when he received letters and a telephone call from Harlem Giobetrotters owner 'Abe Saperstein, Troy seized the opportunity to tnwel.the world. ; 'f. As a member 'of' t'he Harlem Globetrotters from 1964 to 1967, Coilier would travel to at Jeast so countries: D u'ring 'the '1960s when Black Americnn!i were st'ill struggling fo" r civil rights, the loved and well reeeived, .. all over' Europe. Colli'er a stay in .. Lo.ndon where the Globetrotters played 10 days in a row, in a stadium filled to capacity, on each day. He was amazed at the welcome he and his teammates received by mobs of people who surrounded them and chanted in the streets, wherever the team traveled. Since basketball was not a part of European sports at the time, Collier said the Globetrotters felt like ambassadors to the nations they toured. However, not really having had a desire to play professional basketball finally caught up with Collier, and he returned to his first love, working with children. So, he left the Globetrotters to joiri the anti:..poverty initiatives and to serve as .the ,director of .the Cfty of Phoenix, Arizona's Mayo 'r's Council on You'th l:>pportunity, followed by a stint at the Utah Job Center. Collier's entry into the field of edu.cation began at __ Iowa Wesleyan .College, where he recruited inner-c\ty youth from Chicago :and .Detroit. After receiving liis Master's degree at Southe.rn MethOdist University, where he also worked in student services, Troy joined the staff at the University of South Florida in 1971, as Continued On Page 5

) What I Want For Christmasl all the things God ve us that don't to work, he gave us ears But I've always been an idealist. So, I've got to try, at least once more, to be heard! Indeed, I feel like the little voice in Dr. Seuss' story, Horton Hears a Who! WE ARE HERE! WE ARE TIRED OF WAR ... TIRED OF MIS UNDERSTANDING ... TIRED OF SEEING OUR CHILDREN AND YOUR CHILDREN GROUND UP IN MINDLESS CONFLICT. IF IT IS TRUE THAT WE HAVE BEEN MADE IN THE IMAGE OF THE ALMIGHTY, THEN ON THIS DAY-ON CHRISTMAS DAY -LET THERE BE NO MORE BLOODSHED, ON THIS TINY SPECK IN THE UNIVERSE! And who shall listen? From the beginning of ancient time humanity has suffered from hatred But the biggest reason we die without reason is fear. Review each war. It was not begun necessarily because of want, or even anger. It was begun simply out of the con cept of fear. Fear of what? When the Persians attacked Athens 400 Spartans gave their lives, .at Thermopolis, what was the reason, other than fear? And what about these modern wars that havekilled countless millions around the world? World War I was begun simply over a misunderstanding. World War II was the result of a previous war that left a nation broken and bleeding, unable even for its people to buy bread. Men and women donned helmets of steel and marched against other men, women and chil. dren, and cut them down. Was it out ofanger? Was i_t really due to the belief that they, the were indeed, a master race? Or Was it simply out of fear that the w:orld was encroaching their survival, that they massacred more than 20 million people, six million of them Jews? Why did Japan, in the dead of night, attack and decimate our nation's Pacific Fleet, murdering thousands and beginning a conflagration that ended with the detonation of the world' s first atomic device? Was it for living space, or was it out of fear that saw a nation almost sunk to the bottom of the sea? Then on the heels of the second war that should have ended all wars, came Korea and the of thousands of human beings laid waste both North and South. For what? And still, we were not through. We Americans, with our can-do-spirit," were persuaded into believing that a Vietnamese man, who took as his motto the beginning of our own Declaration of Independence, was a fiend in the Far East, intent upon fur-thering the fury of Communism in South Vietnam. So, we fought. Thousands died on either side. And i n the end, there was only an embarrassing silence, but no peace. Why did we go? Was it to help others? Or was it fear for our own political survival? And now, we stand at another precipice. The former Soviet Union is no more. Nations like India, China and Pakistan have armed themselves with nuclear weapons. And we Americans face economic annihilation, as we stand poised to bring about Armageddon. And I say, ENOUGH OF THE FOOLISHNESS! So, if there is a Santa Claus, and il there is, indeed a God who is merciful and who has ears, this is what I want for Christmas. I want a world without fear and hu.nger! Under my tree, put a package of peace and understanding And inay we all have a safe and fovirig Holiday at least this once! (There! This Who, from Wboville has yelled, "WE ARE HERE!" I pray Horton is still listening!) J Black American Insight from page 4 Assistant to Vice President -Midey. Later, in his capacity as Assistant Dean of Students and Associate Dean of Students, Collier continued to help youths achieve their educational and occupational dreams, by his work with Black, Latino, Indian and Asian student groups. He became not only a mentor, but became a quiet hero to all he helped.

There are all over that indicate that this Christmas season is not your usual. All one has to do is ride through th e various neighbor hoods and notice how many homes have no Christmas dec orations at all Then notice the homes th a t only have a mini mum amount of Christmas dec orations and especially the lack of Christmas lights. Then notice how early those with lights cut them off. The Christmas spirit of so many citizens has been damp ened so until there is not as much Christmas music as in past Christmases. The malls don't seem to be crowded and children have been warned to expect Santa to drop off fewer and less expensive gifts this year. The sound, the smell and the scenery that usually surrounds Christmas are missing this year But! Maybe it is a good thing. All the lights, tinsel, Christmas wrapping, partying and decorations have caused so many of us to forget the real meaning of the Christmas sea son . Maybe we can pause to think fhat we:celebrate Christmas because it marks the birth of Jesus Christ our Lord-and Savior. Maybe these terrible econom ic times will teach us that Christmas isn't about giving gifts. Instead, it is about spending time with family and friends. It is about showing love, peace and good will toward all mankind This is a time when we honestly ask absolute strangers how are you doing and genuinely care. On Christmas morning, maybe this Christmas, we won't be so busy opening Christmas gifts to pause and get into the real spir it of the season. Could Christmas have be come such a big celebration until God believes it is time to get all of our attention and bring us back to the real mean ing of the Christmas season This Christmas season is one that all humans can use to learn soriie valuable lessons It is an opportunity to appre- date just being alive. It is an opportunity to get back to appreciating the simple things in life It is a time to do what we can to help the less fortu nate. It is a time to remember and to visit the sick, as well as those behind prison walls. On Christmas morning we need to remember that it is the thought and not the gift that counts. Regardless of the econ omy, let's do what we can to make this a Merry, Merry Christmas, with Peace on Earth and Good Will to all men, women and children "TT r o :::0 6 > en m z z m r I m c: r r m z "0 c:: m .. c;; ThiS Chrlstmasl ::z:: m 0 m November sth, I :have been ready to send George "O,.bya" Bush packing and I know that I am not alone.

The TBARTA Officers are as follows: Chairman, Shelton Quarles, Gubernatorial Appointee; Vice Chairman? Mayor frank Hibbard, Clearwater, and representative of the West Central Florida Chairs' Coordinating Committee Secretary, Commissioner Ann Hildebrand, Pasco Courity Treasurer, Hugh McGuire, Gubernatorial Appointee. As part of the new by-law change, the fifth member of the Executive Committee will be the Chair of the TBART A }?unding and Finance Committee, unless that person is already an officer. Because Mayor Hibbard is currently the Chair of the Funding and Finance Committee, the Board elected Commissioner John Thrunlston, of Citrus County, as the fifth member of the Executive Committee. The Florida Legislature created the Tampa Bay Area Regional Transportation Authority in 2007 to plan and develop a multimodal transportation system that will connect the seven counties of tlie Tampa Bay region. The counties include Citrus, H ernando, Hillsborough, Mariatee, Pasco, Pinellas, arid -Sarasota. The legisla tQ r e has mandated that .TBARTA must create a Regional Transportation Master Plan for the Tampa Bay region by July 2009 and TBARTA is working to present a plan to the public by February 2009. The goal of this Master Plan is to engage the public in developing a vision for regional integration of transportation systems and foster partnerships with government agencies and business entities.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers controlled their own destiny entering their contest Sunday against the San Diego Chargers. All they had to do, after losing two straight division games, was to win their last two against the Chargers and Raiders, and they would have virtually locked up a wild-card play. off spot.

Sports Tiger On Schedule To Play Masters THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. -Tiger Woods wore sneakers instead of spikes He sat next to a bottle of Gatonide Tiger, not the silver U.S. Open trophy. One thing that didn't change at his first press conference in 184 days were questions about his left knee. But after speaking for a half-hour Wednesday at Sherwood Country Club, covering everything from his rehab to his caddie to his Improbable victor:y at Torrey Pines, the most powerful statement about his health and future required no words at all. Does he have any doubts he will be better than before? Woods turned up the bottom of his lip, shook his head three times and muQl.bled, "Uh-uh," as if that had never entered his TIGER WOODS mind. Six months after reconstructive surgery on his left knee to repair a ruptured ligament his third surgery in six years -Woods said he was right on schedule to return, already hitting short irons and excited about playing on a leg that has never been more stable. Dawson-Tarver Rematch Set For-March 14 ANTONIO TARVER vs. CHAD DAWSON Former light heavy-weight champion Antonio Tar.ver has excelled in rematches during his career, going 3-0. After losing to Eric Harding, Roy Jones Jr. and Glen Johnson, rarver bounced back to win the sequel. Now, Tarver will see if he: can stay perfect in a rematch with Chad Dawson when they meet again March 14 on HBO's "World ,Championship Boxing." -. Although Tarver fought as well as he has in years, Dawson dominated him to claim a light heavyweight belt in a lopsided unani:rnous decision on Oct. 11 in Las Vegas in their longawaited fight. Dawson dropped Tarver in the 12th round and won 118-109, 117-110 and 117-119 on the official scorecards. But Tarver, who turned 40 last month, had a rematch clause in his contract and promoter Gary Shaw told ESPN.com Wednesday night that he has finalized the fight Meet The Press Tiger Woods touched on myriad topics -hitting golf balls sooner than expected and continuing to deal with his injury among them while even poking a little fun at his caddy after some recent controversial remarks. Bob Harig, "I've just been training and trying to get healthy enough to compete next year," Woods said. "Everything has been right on schedule. I couldn't have asked for anything more." The uncertainty is when he will return, and how his leg will respond when he goes through a full p ractice His plan was to start hitting balls in January, but he already has been chipping and putting, and tak-. ing full swings with small clubs, shots that go no more than 100 yards. WBC Investigating MosiJ' u-. OfEPO 'SUGAR' MOSLEY "Sugar" Shane Mosley's admission to a grand jury in 2003 that he injected himself with the doping agent EPO as he prepared for a fight against Oscar De La Hoya has provoked an investigation by the World Boxing Council, according to the New York Daily News. The transcript of the boxer's testimony was part of a BALCO file that was under a protective order before U .S. District Court Judge Susan Illston decided last month to allow prosecutors to share thousands of documents with Barry Bonds' lawyers. "It was a real surprise to read that Mosley has confessed that he did take those medicines, those drugs that are totally pro hibited by the WBC," WBC President Jose Sulaiman told the Daily News.
