CREWS -Sentinel Staff Writer With the crime rate in_ West Tampa reaching alarm ing numbers, law enforcement officials have done evecything they can to make residents in the area feel safe. However, many residents in the area feel they need to unite as a community to solve their problems. It was suggested that mem bers of the George Edgecomb Bar Association collectively provide their with the problems in West Tampa. The Association con sists of 90% of the African American attorneys in Hillsborough County. One of those members, Attorney Barbara Pittman, said she knows there is a lot of crime going on in that area, but she's not clear what they can do to help. "The people that com munity never come to us for help in representing them, so we really have no direct con tact with the residents." Attorney J Delano Stewart, who was an early A'fi'Y. BARBARA PITI'MAN mentor of the late Judge George Edgecomb, said he feels more than the Association has to get involved. ., "All professionals need to get involved. We've had a great disconnect with the community over the years. In the past, the strong took care of the weak. Today's genera tion does nothing to improve the conditions in their community. Charity begins at home." Atty. Stewart said he thinks this would be a wonproject, but he'd like to talk to School Superinten dent MaryEllen Elia about changing the attitudes of our ATIY.DELANO STEWART young people and their value "We have enough resources to take care of this problem. All we need to do is pool them together and get to work." Atty. Daryl Stringer said neighborhood watches, rally ing the people, and encour aging them to get the knuck leheads out of their commu nity is one way they can lend their support "The economy has sent sev eral communities into tail spins and people are acting out of desperation or just plain survival. Just Fine In '09: ' getting into the ears of the ... City Council and other elected officials is something that :,. needs to be done as well." All of the attorneys said community projects should come first and be identified by those whose views and knowledge are broad and in dept}l.

The Causeway store was set on fire in 2006, and unfortunately, has not reopened. On January 3, 2009,' Rudolp h decided to close the doors of the Tampa Park store after much prayer and guidance. "I want to thank the many friends I've made over the years Many have supported the busi ness with the variety of services offered.

A DastardlY Disgrace . ': a time when there is absolutely no Black pres. : ence in the U.S. the only Black Senator who is scheduled to be seated will probably be denied the righno do so. And the why is fit for a scoundrel! -Supposedly, an aide who was familiar with Senate Democratic'leaders, recently said, "If (newly appointed Illinois Democratic Senator) Roland Burris tries to enter the Senate Chamber, the Senate doorkeeper will stop him. If Burris persists either by trying to force his way onto the Senate floor or by refusing to leave the premises and causing a scene, then U. S. Capitol Police would stop him." Said the aide, who asked to remain anonymous, for good reason, "The police probably wouldn't arrest him, but they would call the sergeant-at. arms," who would escort Burris out." ,Black Americans are no strangers to ostracism. Since Reconstruction, when newly freed Black men had the audacity to be elected to state and federal posts, all assumed those posts at the risk of their lives and the lives of their families. Ask the spirit of Oscar de Priest, from, of all places Illinois, who was the first. Black American to serve in Congress in the. 2oth century. Then ask Adam Clayton Powell, Jr., (D. New York), who was hims'elf, refused a senate seat on accusations of Congressional impropriety.

Celebrate Education th the impending i wearing in.. of .;. ; Senator Barack Obama as the nation's 44th president later this month, we are expecting change for the first time since anyone can remember. It's not because we view him as a miracle worker, but it is because we believe that we need a change. We believe that we need a new direction under the guidance of a new leader. We believe we need someone with fresh ideas who is prepared to roll up his sleeves and get the country back on its feet. We believe ... There is nothing wrong with this logic. We all need to believe that life can and will be better in the coming year. That is really the definition of hope. And, without hope, the future holds nothing of promise for us. We believe in President-Elect Obama he promises hope in the fortn of change. We always knew:that it could be done. But, we: also always knew that it would never happen as long as ;peo ple were willing to accept the status quo. It appears by all standards that our country has been on a collision course of destruc tion for the past eight years. But, in exactly t\YO weeks from this day, PresidentElectobama will the awe some responsibility of turninf thi!i country around. However, he is Itbt the only one who should be taking a vow. We all should take one on that day. After all, he promises the change that we have all wanted so desperate-ly. . So, on January 2oth, we should all take a vow to change. We need to change our mindset from thinking things are impossible. We have elected our first president of color. Therefore, nothing is impossible the impossible just ta.kes a little longer. We should change our atti tudes from I won't do that to at least I'll try before I refuse. Refusing to do something without first trying is self defeating. We should change our minds as often as we like as long as we make a positive change for the better. We should change our goals from dreams to reality. We know that we will face obsta cles, but those are a part of living, the larger the dream the larger the obstacle. But, before we can do any of these things, we must first change our opinion of change. Instead, of fearing change, we must learn to embrace it. .: ;,; :: :: << ':: :: is the time of ;ear -. .the Treme,-distrlci also when many of our some damage when the levees the "New Orleans' famed red-friends and readers broke. during Hurricane light district (between North are making final plans for Katrina.

A Breath Of" Fr8sh lirf. you were like me and so million other ericans, it probably almost escaped your notice .. I'm talking about a snippet of in -formation buried on the. fifth page of a daily newspapel" edition published last Saturday. Entitled, "This Just In," a mini-article asked, "IS IT EVER WRONG TO DO THE RIGHT THING? Then, in space of a paragraph, it went on to provide one of the most fascinating this writer has ever seen. Are you interested? Well, let me tell you, anyhow Have you ever heard of the GREAT AMERICAN THINK OFF? Neither have I. But for the past 17 years, this arcane organization, based in the curiously sounding city of New York Mills, Minnesota, has been providing a competi tion that gives opportunity for anyone in the world to voice his or her opinion on questions that try men and women's souls (as colonial writer Thomas Paine might say). No lie! Last year's Great Aineriean \'!as "Does Immigration Strengthen or Threaten the Unitea StatE_!s?" Other ques tions have included "Which S)lpuld You Trust More: Your Head or Your Heart?" (2007); "Which is More Valuable to Society: Safety or Freedom?" (2005); "Is the Pen Mightier Than the Sword?" (2002); "Is Democracy Fair?" (2ooo); "Is the Death Penalty Ethical in a Civilized Society?" (1997), and "Is Honesty Always the Best . :.. .,;. ... '\,i :.: Policy?" cl998). won a monetary reward, plus travel, food and .lodging expenses; as they were requested to come to New York Mills (Minnesota) to _participate in a four-way debate, whose winner would be decided by a live audience. AND HERE'S ALL YOU HAVE TO DO! Complete an essay of 750 words or less by April 1, 2009 which answers the question "Is It Ever Wrong to Do the Right Thing?" Postmarked no later than that date, you may send your essay through the mail to Great American Think-Off ; New York Mills .Regional Cultural Center, P.O. Box 246, New York Mills, Minne .sota. (MN) 56567, send it e-mail to (no attachments), or go on-line to the Great American Think-Off website and complete the form you find there. Either way, the excitement (and if you win) the rewards are mouth-watering, I think! And why not? Why not begin this New Year with a totally new and. peacefully attitude? In other co.ura geously out on "Light-Fantastic" and let the world hear what you have to say, especially if you're going to get paid for it, too, if you win? To my mind, it's a whole heek of a lot better than play. ing the Lottery or losing your money to this newfangled Roller Ball! So, whaddayuh say? I say, "This year, LET'S FLY!!!" Black American Insight from page 4 Festival, Faubourg Treme' takes you on an historic tour of New Orleans that visitors seldom get to see or hear. Thus, if Faubourg Treme' comes to town, make sure you to see it. Billed as a "film of ideas, an historical film, a p ersonal film and a celebra tion of place," Faubourg Treme' will have a special and different meaning to you the next time you visit New Orleans.

U) ates Constitution citizens the right to bear arms and no I ani not suggesting in any, way that anything be done to infringe on that right in any manner. .However, I do believe that we need to visit the New Year's Eve tradition of shooting guns in the neighborhood as the New Year comes in. This is a tradition that has been carried on for decades all across this nation But in today's crowded cities, it has become a dangerous thing to do. There are entirely too many guns out there being fired for this tradition to con tinue The shooting continues to grow each year. In addition, many of those guns are being fired by chil dren and inexperienced gum users This in itself is not a good thing. Many people live in fear each New Year's Eve and early morning as they wait for the firing of guns to cease. I have been told by a number of people that they fear that any second, a bullet may crash through a window or even a wall of their houses when these guns are being fired in their communities in rapid succession. Still others say they dare not leave their house for fear of being shot accidentally. They don't want to drive because they do not' feel . safe even in their cars. Yes, we all want to celebrate the arrival of each New Year. But, so many believe that we need to find a safer way to celebrate. Legislative bodies all over need to outlaw firing of guns in the streets in order to celebrate any occasion as being illegal and demand that law enforcement people enforce the law. There are too many drunken or careless people out in crowded communities firing guns for it to be safe. I have never read or heard where someone was acciden tally shot by the New Year's gun:.firing tradition. That does not mean that it hasn't happened. The chances of it happening increase each year. How do we make the New Year's birth an enjoy..: able, but safe affair? Heck, I don't know. Maybe neigQborhoods should be encourage' d to have block parties for neighborhoods that are free from gunshots. A second choice would be to open community centers and play games, sing songs and eat. I know those things do not sound very interesting now, but those things beat by a mile people running around firing guns all over the place. Blacks are intentionally killing too many Blacks have that number grow by an accidentally shooting. Firing guns during the early hours of the New Year is a time old tradition. But! It is time we pack that tradition away and find another way to celebrate.

So inany questions, so little time! Well, we have a question. By a show of hands, how many are thrilled to "kick 2008 to the curb?" Just last week, I overheard one of my co -workers tell another co-worker that she was going to stay up until midnight so she could make sure that 2008 was over. Without tcyirig 'to appear as though I was listening to their conversation, I laughed to myself. I thought, "Wow, was it really that bad?" For many, the year 2008 wa s really that bad. There were many that started the journey with us at the begin ning of the year, but on Decembe r 31, 2008, they were no longer with us. Many of us lost our jobs because of downsizing, outsourcing or because of the financial constraints of our employ e r(s) that forc e d them to either shut down, file ban kruptcy or move to another location. In 2008, quite a number of us parents watched our children take separat e paths that we wanted for them. Some are incarcerated, some are walking the streets, hungry or looking like somebody threw them away A few of our children have abandoned their own children and w e find ourselves caring for our grandchildren, nieces and nephews, cousins. and in some cases, we are even tak ing ca r e of our great -grand childr e n. When we should be retired, we have had to find jobs just' to make ends meet and supplement our limited incomes to do the right'thing because it is what we do. Oh, l e t us not forget the auto industry! Jus t last month, more than 20,000 Black workers lost their jobs because those who think they know better than w e do would rather have control themse lv es than hav e a unifie d body of blu e -collar work ers show solidarity. When white-cpllar crooks and their yellow-collared cohorts con vinced us that $700 billion of our taxpayers' money was c )> z c just enough to turn our coun-., try around, we still have not gotten a straight answer from the Treasury Department. But then, a ray of hope came. The Rays changed their name and almost went "allthe way." It felt.like Tony Dungy had c;>me back .. home! As if that was not enough to make us all team players, a little known Chicago Senator' threw .his name in the hat as a tender in the race' for the President of the. United States. Talk about a nail biter, huh? From that alone, we saw the "freaks come 'out." But, in the words of Marvin Sapp, ;'We made it," but not GOD's Love . This year in 2009, name it and claim it-i(s your destiny! Peace Be Unto You. U'l
