Family members found themselves having to -explain things they knew nothing about, and the entire ordeal took a heavy toll on Ms. Dukes. The shining light she held on to throughout the whole thing was the success of her other son, Tyrone Evans. Although Tyrone had also found himself in the shadow of his older brother, he managed to stay focused, earn ship to Albany State College, &&.. and this past Saturday in front Q of family and friends, he gradZ uated. c( "I'm proud of all children, especially my sons.

Ms. Dukes said she's not sure what Tyrone is going to do next, but he will be spend ing time at home with the fam ily over the holidays "I'll have my entire family around me. What more could any mother ask for. "Tyrone is going to do some great things, and you will be hearing his name a lot con nected with suecess. i can't say i : enough about how he never allowed things going on outside of school to cause him to stray He stayed with it for four years, and now he has his re ward."

Why Christmas Is. For Everyone \ hristians claim it. But Christmasis for e v eryone! In .. fact, if truth-be-told, Christmas is and has always < )been as much a non-secular national holiday as it has been embraced as a religious ritual. But don't take our word for it. Look and see for yours elf. You would think they w ere the United Nations. Local malls and boutiques even in austere times like these, continue to be crammed with shop p ers from every conce ivabl e faith and ethnicity Indeed t her.e seems t o be something m agica l a bout gift givi n g from the heart. Even research sci entis t s admit they a r e baffled by the positive impact of "Peace a n d Goodwill," as these concepts mak e thei r prese n ces fe l t, even in jai ls and penitentiaries. Most ce rtainly, Christmas agrees with more than simply a stampede of mindless package purchasing. Something a b o u t the mus i c swe e t e n s t h e a i r So m .et h i n g about the way most people address e ach other, with "Merry Christmas," no matter what language they may use, is fascinating to s ee. We have not seen any statistics to bear it out. But we would be willing to bet that the closer our society gets to Christmas Eve and to Christmas itself, greater is the decline in major crime. If so, the reasons are abundantly clear. Christmas season; in most nations who celebrate it, is built on the concepts of love, peace, 'forgiveness, sharing, giving and joy without condition Once a year, are obliged to put down their arms; 'offenses may be forgiven; debts may be written off; families tom apart by misunderstandings and strife may find reason to sit down and eat together in love and harmony. ea:n such a celebration be the domain of one religion, or of one people? Last Minute Life Saving Christmas Gifts :_;f you are like many .of our readers, no you still t} ?have some last minute Hanukkah, Christmas or ?' ... 1iKwanzaa gifts to purchase. And if you are like most of you're probably searching yet, meaningful gifts because of budget constraints during these economic times. Well, we would like to recommend some inexpensive gifts that you might consider, gifts that will be deeply appreciated and could very well save someone's:Ure. Because of a rash of accidents over the past inonth, at the top of our list of last-minute life-saving gifts, for adults, is a smoke detector. Certainly, everyone's home needs one or two placed high on walls near bedroom areas. Add a few extra 9 volt batteries as a reminder that the batteries need to be changed Next on the list is a carbon monoxide detector similar in size to the smoke detector, for the home, as well. Fumes from improperly operating heating and coolins systems, as well as fumes frol idling ftt'S in attached garages are detected by this nifty little gadget. And last, but surely not least is a 100 piece roadside emergency kit for car drivers. This wonderful gift will increase the safety of-drivers, especially single passenger drivers, at night. < Yes, in the interest of keeping our readers and their loved o:t ones safe for the Holidays, we offer these suggestions leadW ing into the New Year. But whatever you buy or don't buy, take this with you. We thank you for walking us through the year. Getting :tJ!Iiiliii: ';row that Christmas is ... ehind us, we turn our thoughts to the future. We are on the verge of a new beginning During the first month of the year, we will welcome a new President of the United States. Although some still choose to question his "race," the fact is, he looks like us -and we're claiming him. With the state of the econo m y being as it is, we will reluctantl y carry some of the old bagga ge from into the New Year And chances are, the economy will g e t worst b e f or e it gets b e tter But as indi v idu a ls w e must con centra t e getting r ea d y f o r t h e f uture. We ca n do thi s by tak i ng a good, hard l o ok a t ourselves a n d trying t o Future improve. There are :some things that each person 'can do to improve his or her _station in life. For those who cannot nnd employment, there may be a need for a career change : :or, additional education may be the answer If that job always seems just out of reach apply for grants and return to school. Many people feel that look ing for a job is a waste of time with the economy being a s it is. But, it's not always what is available right now We must look a t what might be a vail able tomo r row. Then we mu s t g e t o urs e l ves in a po s ition so that w hen th e opportunity presents it se lf, w e a r e read y to e mb race it. S ome may f ee l th a t sc h oo l i s not the answer But that depends on your perception of school. Sclwol does not necessarily mean a typical college class. It could just as easily be a trade school. The general idea is to do something constructive with your time. By not trying to improve on your life could be an opportunity missed. No one knows what the future will bring. And, no one knows how long it will take before the economy turns around Realistic a ll y though it didn't get in the sh a pe it' s in overnight and it won't improve overnight e ith e r But w e must b e liev e th a t thin gs will get b ette r a nd we must b e r ea d y w h e n it h a p pe ns. Interesting Season's Celebrations me extend wishes Happy Hanukkah, rry Christmas, Happy Kwanzaa and Happy New Year to all of our readers. May God grant you all the joy, love; peace and happiness your hearts can hold and health of mind, body and. spi r it during the holiday sea son and the New Year. While preparing to celebrate the holiday season, I became interested in sharing three interesting facts about Christmas and Holiday tradi. others not so familiar. First, I thought you would be interested to know that in the late 180ete") until the 19SO's when the world began to becqme. more culturally sensitive. "Black Pete" was used by parents to warn children that if they''didn'. t behave, "Black Pete" wouid come and take them away. As ; par t of t\le nation_ al celebra tion, pepp_le. (including chil

My First; Santa. Claus I .... .. laus?" "Shu-.. j _: ....... .. Shu-up! Ain't no such thing!" It is, too! I know because I've seen him! And this is my story." "We come from the coun try. The hills of West Georgia are where we're from. We went to a two-room country school that catered to grades from the First Grade through the Sixth Grade. Mrs. Dorothy C. Boynton taught First through Third. And Mts. Margie Brisbone Folks taught Fourth through Sixth. Mrs. Folkr was the principal and we used to love to see her coming to school because she always wore high-heel shoes and they would always get stuck in the mud and cow manure, when she stepped outside her '59 Plymouth. But that's another story. This particular day was the last school day before Christmas. Everybody, including the school bully Barry Jackson, had been extra good all week, because Ms. Folks. had promised us a special treat i{ nobody did anything that either made them stay inside for recess, or get hit in their hands with a limber sapling switch. It was hard. But we did it And along came Friday 3:15p.m., fifteen minutes before Mr. Pete came rumbling down a dirt road, in our old beat-up school bus. Both rooms were packed into the Fourth-through-Sixth Grade room. Ms. Folks began to speak. "Now, young men and women" (she always called us that ... never "boys and girls!"), "as I've told you ox; so, is a day when we have a big surprise!" All the little girls giggled! And the little boy,s .fidgetedi Ba'rry Jackson. rolled his eyes and sucked his teeth. "We have somebody who has been waiting to see you, all 'year long," gush eo Ms. Folks! "He has been waiting to see you and I might add that he says, if you've been good, he may come back to see you again, in the next .few days!" Then she stood to the full extent of her lightskinned, "five-foot-five" frame, surveyed us all with her kindly eyes and crowed, "WHO DO YOU THINK I'M TALKING ABOUT?" "SANTY CLAUS, we chirped, in appreciation and expectation! And no sooner had we spo ken than the front door burst open, and in strode a man in a sooty-red uniform with dirty white trim, a skinnylooking rascal who obviously had a pillow where his belly was supposed to be ... and of all the things in the world that he could ever be, he just hap pened to be Black! We looked at him, and said in unison, "EEEEY AAAAAAAAAH!!!!! WAAAAAAAAH!!!!" Then somebody remembered a documentary we had seen, a week previously, and yelled, "DUCK AND COVER!! DUCK AND COVER!!" And everybody scrambled to get under a desk! It didn't matter whether it was his or her desk or not! Indeed, it was every student for himself, and the devil-take-the-hindmost! But as f9r me, I had always been ch,ubby and somewhat slow. so; I couldn't make it to my desk in time; just ran around in circles! And guess who that boogieman in a soiled red suit grabbed first? ME!!!!!!!! "HAW, HAW, HAW," he drawled! "MERRRRRY CHRISTMAS! WHATCH'ALL WON'T?" "I won'tchou to leave me alone! THAT'S WHAT I WON'T!" With his bloodshot eyes, the imposter glared at me; and said, "What? You don't like Santy Claus?" And with contempt, I glared back at him and screamed, "YOU AIN'T NO SANTY CLAUS!!" "Why ain't I Santy Cl'cius?" he sputtered. And I told him, "BECAUSE YOU'RE COLEEEEYAAAAAH!f!!" He finally put down; the bus came, and we went home. That was many years ago Things have changed since lhen. But I will never forget my first experience with a Black Santa Claus. (A:rftl Black Santa Ciaus won't it, either!) Black American Insight continued fr:om page 4-A We will talk more about this tradition later, also. So, there's more to Saint Nick than meets the cultural eye, would you say? Meanwhile, may the peace, love and joy we express during this Hanukkah, Christmas and Kwanzaa seaspn remain with us throughout the New Year! R&ligion At Christmas Time most Americans, i i Christmas is a reli gious holiday. So why not use this Christmas season to talk about religion. I am well aware of the fact that America is a col}ntry founded on religious freedom. That means everybody in America has the constitution al right to worship as they please. of others, public .schools have not been the same. Everybody, including children, teachers, parents and other school personnel, need some Supreme Being to believe in, to depend on and to pray to. respect those who decide to pray and while they pray. We said the Pledge of Allegiimce and sang The Star Spangled Banner in school, why can't we say the Lord's Prayer? The Supreme Court and most governmental bod ies begin their meetings with the Lord's Prayer; why can't public schools begin their day with the Lord's prayer. I say this with respect for all reli gions. But for so long, most Americans prayed to the Christmas that was created to recognize the birth of Jesus Christ, the Savior of the world Children were allowed to pray openly in pubic schools. This was done for years and years. Then one day someone complained. The devotional period that offered an opportunity to pray was the only exposure to reli gion or prayer happened during the school devotional period. With that gone, so many of our children are no longer exposed to either reli gion or prayer. I think that we should use this Christmas season and as much time as necessary in the future to review the court's position on prayer in school. Conditions in the world today tell me that we need prayer in our schools today more than ever before. A lack of good teachers, a shortage of money, an absence of supplies, books and up-to-date teaching devices, children's loss of ., interest in being educated and 5 parents failing to get involved :::t1 in their child's education C The Supreme Court ruled that prayer in public schools was unconstitutio'nal and therefore banned from public schools. No, this is not the legal language that stopped prayer in public schools, but it does make my point of what happened. In this writer's opinion, and the opinions held by millions Prayer" can be brought back into the public schools and students who don't want to pray would not have to pray and would be respected for their decisions. Of course, they would be required to aren't the only reasons for failing schools. An absence of prayer could be a major fac tor. The next thing. we know, Christmas, Easter and even Sundays will be unconstitu tional. This nation needs to get back to religion and it needs to start in our schools. That is where our future is.

But for me, it amounts to one of those "Whoa" moments you encounter throughout life. Now that same six-pound bundle of joy is legally able to drive, quickly approaching adulthood, and if he's anything like his father, anxious to mate. The last part of that equation bothers me the most, because my absence from his life has left him unprepared for what to expect from the opposite sex.

The Thug Misses -You'll know her by the amount of gold she wears, particularly in her mouth. You are most likely to meet her in nightclub establishments with words like "lounge" or ''bar" painted on the side of the building. Adoption Usually, she's not the most attractive woman. But her skimpy attire draws you in like a moth to a flame. The problem is, once you start dating her, it's like riding around town with a killer pitbull. He quick temper coupled with the discomfort she feels outside of her environment, often ends with you attempting to separate her from whatever cashier, waitress or busboy who accidentally pushes her ghetto button. She is perfect if you plan on doing a prison bid or doesn't mind building your wardrobe through the shoplifting network. Just remember, if you settle down with one of these types, keep a bail bondsman on speed dial. 9.) The Cougar-It is almost a right of passage for a young man to be seduced by an older woman.

CREWS Sentinel Staff Writer On three occasioms, Ms. Elease Moore has had to do the one thing every parent dreads. She's had to bury a child, most recently a daughter. For decades, Ms. Moore was a fixture in Central Park Village where she was known for her generosity, kind heart and willingness to open her home to anyone who needed a place to stay or a hot meal. "I just feel this is what God wants me to do. This is why I'm here. You're not supposed to dwell on all the negative things that happen You have to have faith in God and believe that every thing happens for a reason." When Central Park Village was razed; Ms. Moore joined hundreds of families that had to relocate. She was able to find a home in East Tampa, and along with her caine all of the peo ple she had been caring for. "I couldn't leave them behind. They didn't have anywhere to go I know I take chances sometimes, but I believe in people, and believe with the right help, they can get back on their feet." Attending her daughter's funeral a week ago was long time family friend, Jet Set Hudson. He not only greet ed the family at the service he spoke and paid a tribute to Ms. Moore and how strong she is. "In keeping with the theme of spreading the wealth, I fe It this holiday season, I would reach out to Ms. Moore during her time of need." Hudson presented Ms. Moore with a cash gift at her home, and promised her he'd be there whenever she was in need. "You don't mind doing things for people like Ms. Moore. You know she's sin cere and her heart is bigger. than the world. "I want everyone to start sharing what little they have to help each other This is a critical time in all our lives, and it's time we stopped being selfish and started helping each other.

co g Local N cD N a: w a:l :E West Tampa Chamber Members Shocked At Crime Statistics For Area W 0 w 0 0 a: u. Three weeks ago, West Tampa Economic Develop ment Manager, Michael Randolph, met with mem bers of the West Tampa Cham ber of Commerce. The purpose of the meeting was to get support for Randolph's public safety program he's trying to initiate in the .area. "I discussed with them the need to take an active role in stopping the rising crime rate in West Tampa. With most of the Chamber's members being developers, this is an issue I knew would get their attention. "If the developers want their projects to go forward; they must first step back and see what's going on in West Tampa." Randolph said aggressive assaults, car thefts, and domestic violence are the leading crimes being committed in the area. "With the murders of 6 peo ple within a couple months in West Tampa, we also have the highest murder rate in the area. I strongly believe the aggressive assaults are the first step toward committing a murder. "I would tie all of these crimes into the failing econ omy." Randolph said the Chamber members believed that crime in the area wasn't that bad ini tially, buf now they've seen the reality and are willing to get in volved in solutions "The developers have big plans for West Tampa, and know they need to act quickly. They want to attract residents to the area to live in their 'new MICHAEL RANDOLPH developments, but they don't want theni to know about the crime in the area. That's not going to work." Randolph said everyone wants to blame drugs for the problems, but drugs are at the bottom of the list compared to the other crimes going on. "What makes it so bad in West Tampa is the crimes are being committed in such a small area, and the numbers are too high for such a small area. I'm expecting to see a rise in burglaries because of the economy, most first timerS act ing out of desperation." Randolph said the system won't help the residents in the area, and they tum to the only other alternative they think they have. "The people feel they have ran out of choices. They are frustrated and tired of excuses. As far as the Chamber is con cerned, I think they were just being naive about what's really going on. "It seems like on every street, a crime is being committed. The city is giving nothing communities for crime preven tion. I hope to get fun.ds through grants and create jobs and youth programs. We also need to reach out to the people facing foreclosure -Randolph said all of this affects the one thing West Tampa needs more than any thing else, and that's business growth. "People aren't going to be drawn to an area to spend-their money if the area has a bad reputation. We need to collec tively come together. It's not hard to change this trend. First, you have to get to admit there is a problem, then move on to solutions." Reporter Leon B. Crews can be reached at (813) _248-0724, or e-mailed at lcrews@jlsentinel.com.

:a c Local Code Inspector Always Had People At Heart c m 0 BY IRIS B HOLTON Sentinel City Editor For nearly 39 years, Harold Scott was a caretaker for the City of Tampa. His job as a Su pervisor with Code Enforce ment was to bring substandard homes and properties up to code. Although he took his job seri ously, he always had the people at heart. Scott said, "We need to look outside of the box. We need to showJove toward our fellow man and help them to rise up." And, it was with this belief that he was able to do his job while helping others along the way. If Scott visited a home where the people could not financially do any better, he helped them to find the re sources needed to bring their homes up to code -"Mayor Pam Iorio told me she wanted East Tampa to look like Palma Ceia or any other area of the city. I took a lot of flack, but I had her support and that of Curtis Lane." During his tenure with the city, Scott encountered people from all walks of life, ranging from those who could do better to those who could. And, it was the senior citizens, the handi capped and those who are liv ing on fixed incomes that tugged at his heart. Whenever possible, he guided them to those who controlled the re sources. Scott said although his job as a city employee was a 40-hour work week he spent many hours working to help others. "People don't realize that your environment plays an impor tant role in their mindset. Peo ple think differently when they live in a clean environment. "President-Elect Barack Ob.,ama will give us the leader-Woman Continues Struggle To Get Home Repaired Two years ago, Sylvester Thomas and his daughter, Diane were happy that city officials had granted them an op portunity to get their home repaired.

A Tampa native, Scott is the son of the late Harold B. Scott, Jr. and Mrs. Lucille B. Scott. He remembers the work ethics his father taught him He was 1 of 10 children. After graduating from Blake High School in 1959, he at tended Tuskegee Institute on a scholarship. His plan was to become an Electrician. How ever, the death of his father al tered his plans and he returned home to help care for his family. He enrolled at Gibbs Jr. College and worked cleaning City Hall at night while attending school during the day. Scott landed a job at the University of Tampa as an Electrician. Scott had been in that position for nearly 10 years when he was approached about a job with Model Cities in 1969. He accepted the posi tion and became an employee of the City of Tampa when the two merged. During his tenure with the city, Scott has held several po sitions and helped train nu merous employees. He watched his division expand from him being the only superm visor citywide to the program 3: growing so large that it em-ployed more than 30 workers :a and 3 supervisors His departure is bitter sweet N in that he is leaving a position c that !lllowed him to help others while making marked im provements in the city. "I'm going to miss it, but we have to get out of the way to allow young people to come up." Scott is a lifelong member of Greater Bethel M. B. Church, where he is active in numerous organizations. He is married to Mrs. Diane L. Scott, the fa ther of 2 sons, 7 grandchildren, and 1 great grandchild. When time allows, he enjoys spending time with his family and describes himself as an avid football fan. His future plans are to help others when ever he can, continue working in his church, and just enjoy life.

must be constantly aware that God is expecting you to do good deeds. There is an expectation of you to live a life pleasing to the God who saved you-Shovv Some Sign The fruit that each one had to bear was the result of their lifestyle. of the indi viduals he shared with them the expectations of his life He simply told them to stop doing whatever it is you are doing and begin doing things better ()/ he world is full of V individuals who are in situations th a t will lead them to a spiri tu a l death Th e re are som e who live liv e s of unri g ht eous living who w a nt to b e d e liv e r e d fro m the c h ains of b o ndage. T h is wee k s lesson in Luke' s G ospel 3:7-18 t eac hes t ha t th e r e w e r e individ u a l s w ho came to flee the wr a th of God John teaches the word of God to the multitude of people who came from around the area to hear him John speaks with authority to them and asks them "who warned you to flee the wrath to come" (vs. 7)? There are many people who will come to the house of worship because they have been warned or informed about the certai-nty of death and destruction God oftentimes warn.s people and provides them with an opportunity to make a change in life. As John is aware of the lifestyle of those coming to him, oftentimes the c hurch is aware of the lifestyle of individuals seeking repentance in the church today. He says : to them -as they come, let the way you live be, proofthat you have repented of your -sins. The way people live should be proof that they are saved and. come out of :their old way of living. The important thing for Dr. -t"e Early &i,.tl 6ets T e Wo,.ct, Early Worship: 7:45am Sunday School: 9:45am Morning Worship: 10:45am Wednesday Night Bible Study:7:00pm people to remember is that because someone sins and yields to the temptation, does not mean that they are not saved! R e pentance is a dail y thing and people must continu e to di e dail y to sin. H e warns the m a s they co m e, tha t they have a r espo n sib ilit y for t h e i r own liv es. T hey ca nnot u s e t h e ir h er it age o f a n ces t ra l b e l o n g ing s as a tick et. Each indi vidu a l must work out his / he r own soul salvation. A person will not escape the wrath to come just because their mother or father was in the church It does not matter because your grandfather was an offi cer in the church or helped build the church. Each indi vidual must show the works of a person saved and baptized. Each person must bring forth good fruit. A person is not saved because they do things A person cannot be saved because of the works they do. The truth of the matter is that good works is the result of being saved and having a God conscience. He warns that God is ready to cut down a ny tree that is not bringing forth good fruit (vs.-9). As you live you He said to them do not take advantage of people share with those around you do not commit violence against a n yone and do not f a ls e l y acc u se a nyon e (vv 11-14). T he expect a tion s th a t God has for thos e wh o are s ave d are not difficult or imp oss i ble. The thing s G od expec t s of His children are things that will make life and the world better. Your chuich can be better if the people in it brought forth fruit worthy of repentance. Before they could get excit ed about what John was say ing, he let them know that it was not all about him (vs. 16). He says that if they think that what he was offering was something, they should make sure that they partake in the offering of the one greater than him who is to follow God wants you to change. God wants the people to change. Each individual must do things that are well pleasing to God. Themessage is not man's message, but it is God's. This is not what man wants it is what God expects. sun DAV PASTOR COY & LADY KAY MORG.o\,'i SAvinG Ltvts Rasot.UTt miSSIOn AMC BRANDON 20 THEATERS 2496 W. 'Brandon Blvd., 'Brandon, FL New Mt. Zion A.

Health News Gout PART I Arthritis: Gout Gout is a forrri of arthritis (an inflammation of the joints) that causes sudden, severe attacks of pain, tender ness, redness, warmth and swelling (inflammation) in some joints It usually affects one joint at a time. The large toe is most often affected, but gout also can affect other joints in the leg (knee ankle, and foot) and, less often, joints in the arm including the hand, wrist, fin gers, and elbow. The spine is almost never affected. What Are the Symptoms of Gout? The symptoms of gout include: Sudden, intense joint pain, which often can wake a per son from sleep : Swollen joint that is warm to touch. Red or purple skin around the joint. If someone has gout on and off for years eventually uric acid crystals may accumulate in the body to form gritty nodules called "tophi." These nodules can appear as lumps under the skin near joints such as the elbows and fin gers, at the rim of the ears or in the kidneys. Uric acid comes from the natural breakdown of the g enetic material in cells, RNA (ribonucleic acid) and DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid). Some foods contain large amounts of purines, especial ly red meats and organ meats (such as liver and kidneys), as well as some shellfish and anchovies. Purines are broken down to uric acid in the body. Uric acid in normal amounts remains dissolved in the blood and easily passes through the kidneys, leaving the body as waste. However, uric acid in high amounts makes a person mor e lik ely to dev e lop g out The a mount o f uri c a cid in your blood ca n cha ng e d e pending on w h a t y ou ea t your ov e r a ll health, how much alcohol you drink a nd wh a t m e dicin es you a re tak ing, as w ell as in response to a sudden illness. What Causes Gout? Gout was once incorrectly thought to be a disease of the rich and famous, caused by consuming too much rich food and fine wine. Although diet and excessive drin' king contribute to gout, they are not the main cause of the condition. Gout results from abnormal deposits of uric acid crys tals in the joint cartilage. The crystals are later released into the joint fluid. Not everyone with high levels of uric acid will develop gout. The kidneys' ability to rid the body of uric acid is partly determined by heredi ty. Yet, just because some one in the family suffers from gout does not mean everyone in that family will have the disease This risk varies from person to person. How Frequent Are Gout Attacks? Gout attacks can recur from time to time in the same joint. The initial attack may You really can get extra benefits. from SecureHoriz.ons -Some of our plans offer you more benefits than Medicare with monthly health plan premiums starting at $0. Thats right.
